Statistics on completed tasks

ernfors says:
A page to view completed tasks graphically, very similar to the existing tag cloud.

Would enable the user to see where he or she puts in most of the effort. It should be possible to define how far back the statistics should report and possible which tags to include. Default should be all tags and all completed tasks.

Result could be reported in circle diagrams, tables etc.

This possible feature would definitely enhance the RTM experience as it would give one immediate data feedback of one's actual progress for a defined period of time as well as category in the cloud.

Moreover, the feature would probably give one greater productivity awareness and strengthen one's conscious decision making.

ernfors, this is an excellent idea! I was thinking exactly about it few days ago.
Seeing the amount of tasks completed, added and remaining in a (kind a burn-down) chart.

This example is close to what I'm trying to say. http://i.msdn.microsoft.com/dd347827.fig09_L(en-us).gif

I hope this suggestion could be approved!

I've been using a motivational site "Joes Goals" for tracking some recurring personal goals. It's extremely simple, but I think it would be great if I could just create those tasks in RTM. But the killer component of JG is that it tracks your current string of consecutive days that you have completed a given task (workout, yoga, whatever) and your overall longest such string. It also tracks negative "achievements" like "bought lunch" rather than brought lunch, etc.
For RTM to be able to do this, it would need to have a customizeable stats screen and you could assign values (+/-) for recurring tasks. RTM would seem to be a great tool for this sort of thing.

Check out Google reader's statistics feature. It would be neat to see what days of the week tasks are being completed. Or what time of the day.

My time of day results would be skewed to the end of the day - when I am going over my tasks and outlining the next days work, but I wouldn't discount the usefulness of time of day statistics.

And while youre in there, don't forget about postponements. :-)

Tracking goals is important. I try to use RTM to do this but don't get any real feed back as to how I'm doing. I have a "goals" list that I have divided via tags into "daily" and "weekly" and have them on a repeating schedule. One problem I run into is that if I didn't achieve a goal on a given day, there is no way to get rid of it except to delete it or to "complete" the task which I feel is a false reward almost. It would be nice if repeating tasks could disappear after their due date and then some kind of statistic to tell me how many tasks I completed before the due date and how many I missed. Also a stat telling me how many consecutive tasks I have accomplished in a role would be nice.

Yes!! I'd love to see a graph of number of tasks completed per month, with options to compare tasks from different lists/tags!

amirmasoudabdol says:
@afmaury Yeah, I checked it again, there is not problem. You have to just wait for a sec to generate your reports. Good luck.

I keep going back to task stats and getting the internal server error...its never worked for me.

So I definitely +1 any plan to provide reporting of this kind.

Actually, I think this is well overdue and RTM needs to innovate a bit more.

I would rather just see this implemented as an exportable data file, then you can import it to ManyEyes or something like that. It's too far afield from what RTM does best, and I would rather see them keep it simple.

Check out Google analytics use/partner with Google Chart Tools to provide easy but powerful charts.

Useful statistics:

I would definitely like to have some stats, in the form of a yearly or monthly calendar maybe, specialy for the daily tasks or daily habits I want to develop. Maybe some export of all the dates I did something. Idealy with a way to target specifics tasks.
Thank you for your great work.

I call my completed tasks list : my succes list. This list is motivate me more than a list of thing to do. Because I'm focus to what I'd doing, Often I think I didn't do enough, but with my succes list, I see how much I've doing on all my projects, So it's very motivate for me.
I explain this because I want a list of completed task with statstics if possible.
Thank you. I love this app. !!

We very much want to view completed events which for us are appointments. Viewing an calendar showing completed appointments is very important to us in planning for next year, helping to assess financial performance.
I'd like to see this in Thunderbird/Lighting/StormCows. RTM seems to allow view a list of completed tasks but doesn't permit sending them into even 30boxes.
A deficiency.

still wondering nowadays why such feature has not been implemented yet?! this would shift RTM from task manager software to personal productivity assistant

Keep it simple though.
I would like to
- get a count of number of tasks completed last 7 days
- get number of tasks planned for coming 7 days
I used this for my weekly review to consider replanning.

This may be sacrilege, but I have been toying with using ToDoist because of some recent reviews (PCMag). For the most part, the latest version of RTM has caught up with TD and other functions remain more powerful. l think the reviewer missed the upgrade. But the one area that RTM really lags is in Status reporting and graphic results. This is the only thing that makes TD even attempting (the Karma section). This is over a week of side by side working comparison. This item has been on this list for a long time and it would help me to know what are the Cow's thoughts and plans on this. Even if you could point us to a third party app, it would help.
