Thanks to your comments and suggestions, we’ve made a few changes in the past few weeks.
As you’ve probably noticed, when you log in now, you go straight to the Profile section, which is now kind of like a dashboard.
In addition to the features that were already available in Profile, like adding text and images to show and tell the world who you are, the new version now gives you quick access to the entire inpowr site. Without having to navigate to other sections, you can create your game plan and set your goals.
From there, you can work on your goals, track your actions and measure your progress.
We made a little change here, too. Now, when you get your email reminder to track your daily actions,
you’re directed straight to the Action page. Seems obvious, but we needed feedback from users like you to remind us.
From Progress back to Goals: keeping the process alive.
Here’s a frustration that many members commented on: at the end of the 21-day period, you go back and rate your well-being again. Then you put a check mark beside the changes that you feel were a direct result of your actions and you hit save. And the process ends there. It’s not supposed to. When you re-rate your well-being, you’re supposed to go back to the Goals section to see what else you can work on.
We’ll be correcting that problem shortly. In the near future, when you get to the end of the 21-day period and make conclusions about your progress, you’ll be asked whether you want to keep working on the same goal or set new goals.
Web platforms are like people: they’re always in beta.
Thanks for your comments and suggestions. And please: keep them coming.
The inpowr team.

You know when you’re on hold and you hear “Your call is important to us, please stay on line.” You think to yourself: “Yeah, right. If my call was important, they’d take it right away.” Or when you see a line like “Please share your thoughts/comments,” you think, “Yeah, whatever… everyone says that.” Well, for the record: WE REALLY MEAN IT!
We really want–no, scratch that–we really need to hear from you. The only way we can make inpowr as good as it can be is to get real feedback from members like you. So please, tell us about your experiences. Not just the functional stuff, like bugs or spelling mistakes. But the big stuff: we need to know what you first expected from inpowr and where the experience fell short. We need to know how you feel while you’re using inpowr: excited, motivated, discouraged, frustrated, etc. Do you feel as though inpowr is helping you in any way, and if so, how? What’s missing from the site? How can we improve?
In short, we need to hear from you! We’ll be making a few changes to the site over the next few weeks to make it easier for you to communicate with us, but until then, please… Don’t be a stranger!
e you soon…
