To add a new program, click on the Program tab in the sidebar.

You will be taken to a list of all the program in your account. If this is your first time on this page, you will need to either create your own or download one of the available programs within Coach Catalyst.

This article will walk you through how to add your own program.

Create Your Own Program

To add your own, click on the "+Program" button in the top right and enter the name for your new program.

You will be taken to the following page:

Here you can start building your program by creating the first habit. Remember, a program is made up of habits and lessons.

Click + NEW HABIT and enter the name of your first habit.

Next, it's time to add daily questions to your habit. Hit the + New Question link to add your first question for the habit.

Enter a title for the question (keep this short!). This is to make it easy for both you and your clients to recognize what question you're looking at in their progress section.

Next, assign a point value between 1-5 points for the question. It will default to 1 and leave it there unless you want to weight certain questions are more value than others.

Now you will enter the daily question and action you want to be associated with this habit. Since the client gets the habit check-in for the previous day, remember the phrase the question appropriately (did you eat your vegetables YESTERDAY?).

Next, enter what you want them to do each day. This becomes very important when they transition between habits.

If you'd like to add another question, hit the + New Question link again and repeat. You can add up to five questions per day.

Once all your questions are up, hit Save Habit.

Add a Lesson

Now its time to add lessons. A habit can have as few or as many lessons as you would like. Each habit must have at least one lesson though.

Click on the + NEW LESSON box and type in the name of your first lesson. To add content to this lesson, click on the pencil icon next to the lesson's name.

This will open up a new tab where you can enter all your content for this particular lesson.

Here you can adjust the name of the lesson as well as the duration of the particular lesson.

Remember, the duration of the habit is determined by the lessons. Not the number of lessons but the duration of the lessons. If you create a habit with one lesson that lasts for one day the habit will last one day.

To add content, just drag and drop the proper element into the Lesson Components box. You can add text, images, embed videos from YouTube, Vimeo or Wistia, and embed audio from SoundCloud.

The lesson editor will auto-save, so whenever you are done, just close the tab and re-fresh your habit editor page.

Quick note, you can edit the content of any lesson at any time.

But if clients are currently enrolled in a suite you will not be able to re-order, add or delete habits or lessons for everyone on that suite. You can re-order habits individually through the client’s profile.
