Version History

0.7 2017-06-10
  • Bug fix:
    • Tasks from group plans no longer show editing controls for fields that can't be edited.
0.6 2017-06-08
  • Bug fix:
    • Working out if a Daily is due is now done with Habitica's isDue property and so will always give the same result as you see on the official mobile apps. If you see that the website is displaying a different selection of due Dailies, the website will be correct; please report it in the Report a Bug guild so we can fix the mobile apps.
0.5 2016-04-24
  • Feature:
    • Added a notification that tells you when a bug might be affecting sorting in your account (example message). If the bug doesn't affect you, you won't see any part of that message.
  • Bug:
    • Fixed (I think) a bug that was totally messing up tags on your task when you changed a tag with this tool.
  • Code:
    • Updated for API v3.
0.4 2016-04-24
  • Bug fix:
    • Allow challenge tasks to have their attributes changed (STR, PER, etc).
  • Documentation:
    • Removed most of the warnings about how this tool might damage your data. It's been safe for all the time I've been using it.
0.3 2016-04-23
  • Feature:
    • Enable markdown.
0.2 2016-04-11
  • Bug fix:
    • Prevented challenge tasks being edited to change their attribute, difficulty, and start/due date. Completion status (Dailies only) and tags can still be changed.
0.1 2016-04-10
  • Features:
    • Several, all experimental.

show explanation

Before using this tool, it's recommended to first you export your data to a backup file using the Habitica website's Data > Export Data > User Data > JSON feature and then afterwards, check that your changes are correct in Habitica. If any problems occur, email lady_alys@oldgods.net for help.

The table below shows your tasks (Habits, Dailies, To-Dos, and Rewards) with some of their settings.

Click on any setting that is underlined like this to see buttons for changing it. As soon as you have clicked on a button, the change will be sent to Habitica. For challenge tasks, most settings can't be changed.

When a task has been changed, its background will change to this colour. This indicates that the other information presented for that task might now be incorrect. For example, if you change the Start Date for a Daily, the "due today" field will probably be incorrect. Filtering will also not use the new information. To see correct data, use the "Re-Fetch Data" button at the top of the page. However, you don't have to fetch data immediately - you can first edit other fields for that task.

Dates: When typing a date, use the format yyyy-mm-dd. In future, there will probably be a calendar picker.

Sorting: Click on a column heading to sort the table by that column. Then, hold down your shift key and click on other column headings for a multi-column sort. The starting sort order is the order of your tasks in Habitica.

Filtering: Use the drop-down menus to filter the list. Select multiple items from one menu to filter for tasks matching any of those items (widen the filter). Select items from a different menu to narrow the filter. Click on the blue links that you'll see after you've chosen a filter to remove that filter.

Searching: Type words in the search box to show only tasks containing all of those words. This is not just for task titles; you can search on any field. The words do not have to be consecutive. Examples:
