Comprehensive Updates to Goals for Courses

DATE:
AUTHOR: The Avidon Health team

While the engineering team focuses on new feature development and improvements to existing features - this releases highlight comes from our content team in the form of a major update to how goals are being set across our courses.

Setting Goals for Courses

Setting short-term and long-term goals is a crucial strategy for our members to achieve their wellness visions. By breaking down their aspirations into smaller, manageable milestones, they can maintain focus, track progress, and stay motivated. These achievements serve as building blocks, propelling them steadily towards their ultimate objectives, making success not only more attainable but also more sustainable.

With this release many Engagement Rx courses are now driving goals for members. Course-driven goals are triggered at various points throughout the courses and, once set, appear on the Goals tile of the member dashboard.

Together, course-driven to-do’s and goals provide the member with actionable ways to incorporate what they’ve learned in courses into their daily lives.    

For reference, the following is the complete list of goals that have been added with this release:
