How do I update my progress? How often should I update it?

To update your word count for your project:

  1. Make sure the project you'd like to work on is set as your primary project. (Here's how.)
  2. Make sure you're within the bounds of the dates you've set for your goal.
  3. You should see a + icon in your navigation. Click this.
  4. Fill out your word count in the menu that drops down. You can choose to update your total word count, or add the words from your writing session to your total.
  5. You can also add additional details if you'd like to track more statistics as you write!

Update your word count as frequently or infrequently as you’d like. We recommend a daily update!
