New Year Resolution Tracker with Weekly Automated Reports

Overview of My Submission

For the MongoDB Atlas Hackathon, we created a web app to help you track and achieve your new year resolutions in 2022! Link to the project: https://nyrtracker.vercel.app.

It is difficult staying on top of your new year resolutions. Two key reasons why people, including myself, fail to stay on top of their resolutions include:

  • Forgetting about them over time
  • Not knowing how to better achieve

Therefore, our web app uses MongoDB to address these issues by:

  • Sending daily reminders for you to log data and track your progress
  • Sending automated weekly reports to summarise your progress, provide insights on how you can better achieve your goals, and prompt you to write journals.
  • Providing a dashboard to visualise your data/progress, display the insights in your weekly report, and provide a space to add memos about your resolutions.

This is an effective way to automate the data collection and analysis process that many of us go through (and forget about over time). Given the time constraints of the hackathon, our web app only supports exercising as a new year resolution.

Try out the app on https://nyrtracker.vercel.app/ by signing up with your Google account (please note that the weekly automated reports has now been disabled). Alternatively, you can check out screenshots below in this post. Enjoy!

For judges of the Hackathon, we recognise that you may not have time to actually try to app and wait a week for the automated reports. So if you sign in to the app, you will see buttons that sends you a demo of the weekly automated report (as well as demo of the daily reminders).

Hope you like our project!
