What is Chip?
Chip is a tool designed to help you track, analyze, and change your habits. For a more detailed overview, check out the intro video which features a walk-through of Chip's functionality.
How can I edit or delete an existing chipboard?
If you click on the title of a chipboard you will be taken to a page where you can view and edit that chipboard's settings. If you want to delete your chipboard, click on the trash icon in the bottom right corner. But be careful – there's no way to recover a chipboard once it's been deleted.
What is a keyword?
A keyword is a single word or abbreviation (cannot contain a space) that allows you to identify a chipboard when texting Chip. Keywords must be unique across all your chipboards (i.e. you cannot have two chipboards with the same keyword). While a keyword is not a required field when creating a chipboard, it is necessary in order to update a chipboard via text message.
Let's say you have a chipboard for surfing and you've designated "surfed" as it's keyword. Whenever you finish a surf session, you can simply text "surfed" to Chip to activate that day's chip within your surfing chipboard. You can also activate a previous day's chip simply by including a date or day descriptor after the keyword. Below are examples of texts that Chip would know how to handle:
- "Surfed yesterday"
- "Surfed 3 days ago" – if today was Friday, this would activate Tuesday's chip
- "Surfed Monday" – this would activate the latest Monday chip
- "Surfed 4/20" – this would activate the chip for April 20th
All keywords are case-insensitive – so you won't have to worry about whether or not your keyword should be capitalized when texting Chip.
What kind of analysis can Chip provide?
Chip has a built-in analysis model that can pull various insights (e.g. streaks, averages, comparisons, correlations) from your data which will be shared with you as they become discovered. While it is currently not available in the beta version, there will soon be a self-serve interface for querying Chip's analysis model. Until that time, feel free to email email@example.com for a CSV export of your data which can then be inputted into a third-party analysis software.
