Not only can you view and filter all resources, but you can mark your favourite ones using the heart icon and we have even suggested some resources tailored specifically to you based on the information you provided in onboarding.

In the My goals section you can create health tracker and non-health tracker goals. Health tracker goals like weight or steps will autocomplete as soon as you enter a reading that achieves the goal. Non-health tracker goals can be manually marked as complete as soon as you achieve them.
