In case you don’t feel like reading, here is a video tutorial explaining the cycles.
How to create cycles
First, let’s navigate to the settings, where you will find a tab for “Cycles” at the bottom.
Once there, you click on the blue new button as shown in the screenshot above. Then you just enter the cycle’s name, choose the timeframe, and click “Save”.
Assigning cycles to goals
Now that you have created your cycles, you can assign your goals to them. This is usually done automatically by the system when you create a goal. Here is an example:
Using the cycle picker
This is an important part of navigating Mooncamp because the goals you can see are based on the cycle you have picked. The cycle picker can be found in the top right corner of any view, as shown in the screenshot below.
Using cycles for other purposes, such as Archive, Backlog or Templates
You can also use the cycles for other purposes, such as creating an archive/backlog for unused goals. You can also use them to save templates of goals which are used repeatedly. In order to do so, you first need to create a cycle with the title “Archive”, “Backlog”, or “Template” and we usually recommend setting the timeframe to just one day in the past. Then you just need to assign the goals you want archived to the archive cycle and then the goals will remain in the system but won’t clutter up your current cycles.
