Sleep tracker suggestion

Where it asks when you slept, there should be a box you can check saying that you didn't sleep at all.

Thanks for the suggestion. We're looking into ways for you to indicate that you didn't sleep. It'll likely work like this: when you go to your sleep tracker, open up the edit and click "Done" without entering any data, then it will record this as 0 hours of sleep. We'll let you know when this feature is available.

Thanks,

I would add :
there should also be a feature so you're able to discriminate between when you got to BED (or, if for ex. you read or watch telly in bed, when you stopped everything and tried to sleep) and when you finally got to SLEEP. When you have insomnias, it's something important to record. Do you have 30min insomnias every night? 2hrs once in a while?
Also, how many times did you wake up, if any? (for how long, if applicable?)
And did you wake up earlier than you wanted? (another type of insomnia).
I know all this can be recorded in the journals, but these are things that are general, can happen for many people who'd use this type of tracker, and having these info on a graph or at least grouped together (like you do right now with the average number of hours slept per night) would make those information that much more valuable than just putting it in a journal.

Thanks!

Thanks for all the great suggestions.

It's a great idea to add how long you were in bed before falling asleep. Unfortunately, that's not quick change, so we'll add it to our list and let you know when it's available.

As for how many times you woke up each night...you can already track this in the Sleep Tracker today. Just click "Add Another" and you can add as many different sleep sessions as you had.

We can easily add a new "symptom" for "early awakening". That will allow you track if you woke up earlier than you wanted.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
MedHelp
