Hi IRISHEI!

The new SparkCoach feature (including your task list) is only available/displayed when you have your account preferences set to use the new Start page. When you say you "go off or back to the normal Spark", do you mean you are changing that preference to use the classic/older Start page? If that is what you mean, then it sounds like everything is working the way we designed it. If I am misunderstanding what you are doing, please clarify so I can provide a better answer.

I go to the New Coach feature and log the tasks required. When I go off or back to the normal spark, it does not keep me on the NEW Coach when trying to log back and forth. I must be doing something wrong. Can you help me with this? Thanks.

Judy,

Thank you for asking that question and providing those details! Another member asked about the SparkPoints/FM display disappearing; but, we had not found what was causing that yet. I was able to recreate that issue by switching Start page views like you mentioned. That info will help our tech team fix the glitch.

I will let you know when I hear it is fixed. Thanks again.

Hi again!
Yes, when I switch from the old start page to the new start page, my total spark points disappear below my name. I want to see the total Sparkpoints all the time when I post.

Hi Judy,

I'm not sure I understand. From where are your total SparkPoints disappearing? Do you mean how they can display under your name on your posts? If that is what you mean, are you saying it gets turned off when you switch between the old Start page and the new Start page or something else?

I do have a different question. Why when I switch between the 2 spark pages, why does my total spark points disappear? Can that be fixed so I don’t have to keep going back to change that?
Thanks so much,
Judy

Thanks for your help! I assumed those points when checked all counted towards the 15 points for tasks done!

Hi Judy!

I checked your account and am happy to say that it looks like you are receiving those SparkPoints. What you may be noticing is that some of the items in your Planner give you Points and they are included in your SparkPoints total; but, those items are not listed individually on your SparkPoints page. I went through and added up your Points for yesterday; the items listed added up to 553. Yet your total Points were 578, so that is 25 additional Points in the total but not individually listed. I did the same thing for today. At the time I checked, your total Points for today were 99; the individual items on your SparkPoints page added up to 94. The extra 5 Points was from Reading Today's Lesson in the Planner page.

About the "Plan your day" Points: To get those Points daily, click that link to "View & add tasks". Then even if you do not change anything in the task list, be sure you scroll to the bottom and click the button there for "I'm Finished Planning". That should check off the "Plan your day" item and award the 5 Points. I tested it on your account for today and it worked fine. You will see that item is already checked and it gave you the 5 Points. Is it possible you didn't click the button to indicate you were finished and that's why you may not have received Points previously?

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have additional questions.

Hi Coach Merle,
This kind of helps. But, the first day I got the 5 points for planning my day but since I have not been able to get those points, are they one time points? Also I read the daily article. It says five points but they do not show up. I know things are hard for me to understand some of this—I’m old and in a lot of pain and taking lots of meds waiting for back surgery the first part of next month!
Thanks for your help.

Hi Coach Merle, thanks so much! That answers my question perfectly. As long as I understand how I'm using it, that's great! I really love this whole new feature!

Hi Judy,

I am sorry; but, I'm not sure I understand what all you are asking--it probably just means I have not had enough coffee yet. :-)

To clarify: You do not get Points just for creating a new task; you get Points after you check the box to indicate you completed that item. Are you checking that box and still not receiving SparkPoints for doing that?

Before you check off a task as being completed, it displays the number of Points that you will get when it is checked; that displays in gray. After you check the box, that display changes to orange to indicate the Points have been awarded.

I hope this helps a little. Please let me know if you still have questions I did not answer.

Hi Karen,

Yes, it sounds like the To Do Now tab is working how it was intended. Here's some info I hope will help explain the intent behind it:

This tab helps prioritize tasks that you want to complete in the next hour or so. You can use the buttons at the bottom of that tab to add (create) new tasks or move existing tasks from My Tasks. When you create a new task while on the To Do Now tab, it also displays in the My Tasks because My Tasks is a complete list of all your tasks. However, creating a new task while on the My Task tab does not automatically place that item in the To Do Now tab because it may be a little longer range task and not something you need to focus on immediately (within the next hour or so).

I hope that makes sense! Let me know if it still is not clear and I'll try again.

I really don’ get this new feature. I add new things and can’t the points for that! Today after checking my feats, I get 7 points. On the page it said reading the article 5 points, drinking water 5 points and other things were checked! It doesn’t seem to be very useable. Please help!

Additional comment -

1. I just tested adding a task to the TO DO NOW tab,

2. it appeared on the My Tasks section as well as the TO DO NOW tab,

3. and then I deleted it from the My Tasks section only

4. and it removed it from BOTH sections.

Is that how it's supposed to work? Just trying to figure this out..

Thanks!

Hi SparkCoaches!

Can you explain how tasks work on the “To Do Now” section on the new SparkCoach? I’ve been playing with it but not sure if I’m doing this correctly.

Whenever I switch to the To Do Now tab, and add a task there, the same task also appears on the My Tasks list. Is it supposed to do that? (note, if I enter it first on the My Tasks list, it does NOT automatically appear on the To Do Now.)

I'm sure there is a simple explanation and I'm probably just very tired this evening... but need a little help. emoticon

Thanks so much for your help!

Karen
