I find Goal Setting as a great tool to plan your year, would you be building something for setting objective/goals for the year, Daily/Monthly/Quaterly goals?
I fear added these would complicate the tool. I have added a Long term goals section in the Envision page. Maybe you could use it as a Monthly / Quaterly goal list?
It would be a great, if we could setup weekly goals ahead. So for example we plan weekly goals for the month
I really like the idea of being able to review each role and think through the goals for that role. What about using GTD's elevation model to start big and drill down so that you can view the highest elevation or get into the micro tasks on any one goal?
Also want to second the helpfulness of being able to assign goals to a future week, pinning them, or setting them to repeat and tracking progress over time without calling it procrastinating.

Do you know of any todo app that does this well? I'd like to see how they did it.
The best todo app that does this, for me, is FacileThings. You can also take a look at My Life Organized
I like how FacileThings tries to coach the users into a certain methodology rather than trying to be a todo app for everyone. This is something I'd like to do more with weekplan. Thanks Alexandre.
My Life Organized is way too "busy" for my liking.
Weekplan could really benefit from something like FacileThings, and the Perspectives tab is a great elevation model
Interesting programs, Alexandre. Thanks for sharing!
Aymeric, I agree My Life Organized is really busy and FacileThings is a little too business-like for personal goals and dreams. But FacileThings does have some nice features that work well for implementing GTD on different levels.
I want to make sure to give you positive feedback as well on things I hope you will keep. I love the white space with color accents that you are using. To add to that, the reason I really love weekplan.net is the basis in 7 Habits but opening it up to make it compatible with GTD. The piece I am trying to figure out how to add for myself within the current structure has to do with recurring task lists that might happen on a weekly basis or long-term projects. I'd be interested in a tutorial on how you do this within weekplan.
We are looking at allowing subtasks in repeating tasks, that will solve your use case.
Guys, longer term goal setting has always been a highly requested feature, but for a long time, I didn't quite know how to integrate it elegantly with WEEK PLAN.
We had a breakthrough recently and have implemented the first iteration of it. You can find a sneak peek of the upcoming Goals page here: http://weekplan.net/sneak-peek-quarter-goals-and-big-rocks-planning/
Please let me know what you think!
Any updated on when the new quarterly goals tool will be released? Very much looking forward to it.
It is available today if you use the new version: https://next.weekplan.net
In the top left menu, you will find the "Goals" module.
Sorry, I'm not seeing it in the top left menu (it says version 2.46, Team, Schedule, Team Settings).
Is it only available for Ultimate users? (I'm currently only a Pro subscriber)
Yes it is a premium feature but the UI doesn't allow you to pick it at the moment. I have added it to your account manually so that you can test it.
Looking at next.weekplan.net and trying the goals option - conceptually this I think is very powerful. However what I don't understand is why I can't create a goal that has a target start and end date.
I started to use it at the end of the last quarter - I think there were 2 days to go. I created a goal - now it seems to have gone with the displayed quarter rolling over. Is it intended that I have to have my goals aligned to the apps quarters?
I guess I was envisaging the display to be like a gantt chart. What is the intention?
