Back to Top↑How do I register for a TDP.me account?
You can create an account by using the "Login with Facebook" option or by clicking the "Register" link and button on http://tdp.me.
If you use the Login with Facebook option, you will either be prompted to enter your Facebook login credentials and then confirm the login or just prompted to confirm the login via Facebook.
If you are not currently logged into Facebook you will be prompted to enter your Facebook login information and then prompted to confirm The Daily Practice and Facebook integration.
If you are already logged into Facebook you will just be prompted to confirm The Daily Practice and Facebook integration to continue with the login.
Logging in with Facebook for the first time automatically creates a TDP account with your Facebook Username and your Facebook avatar set as your TDP.me account information.
If you create an account using the Register option, you only need to enter the email address you wish to use with the account and set a password. Once you enter this information just click the Register button.
Regardless of which method you use to create your new TDP.me account,
the first page you will see is the Getting Started page.
There are 5 pre-defined Categories (the "I want to improve" pull down list at the top of the page) with some suggested goals for each and at the bottom of the page a place where you can enter custom goals.
You can edit, add or delete goals later, but you have to add at least one goal to complete setup and continue to your TDP page.
Thats it! You are all set up and ready to start making your daily goals your daily habits.
Back to Top↑I know I have an account, why can't I log in?
If your account was originally created using the "Login with Facebook" option you can continue to use the "Login with Facebook" method for logging into your TDP account.
If you want to be able to use the direct login, while logged in click "My Account" in upper right part of page, set a password (in the "Change your password" section), — this only applies to TDP.me, your Facebook password is not changed —and then click the "Save" button. You should now be able to log in using the "Login with Facebook" button or entering your email address and the password you just set.
If you created your account directly on TDP.me and are having a problem logging in, ensure you are using the same email address you used when you created the account and ensure you are entering the password in the same case (upper letters, lower letters) that you used when you originally set up the account. If you still have problems logging in try using the "Forgot" password function to have your password reset and emailed to the address on file for the account.

Back to Top↑What is TDP Plus?
TDP Plus opens up the API and the Quality Days System.
"API" is the abbreviation for application program interface, which is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. If you are not familiar with the term "API" you are most likely not a computer programer and this particular feature is not something you will use or benefit from.
The Quality Day System (QDS) is a feature of TDP Plus to not only define balance in your life, but track how well you are doing with that balance. The idea is that some daily activities are worth more; they contribute to what is most important to each person and the long term actions needed to achieve those goals. While other activities may be ones we enjoy, or have to do, they may not necessarily impact the quality and balance of our day and life.
The task at hand is to define and set QDS goals that are inline with what's most important to you. This is a deliberate choice, by listing things to work on, you choose what to work on. You choose what quality means -- that decision gives you a why. With the goals you track, you now have the how.
The cost for TDP Plus is $5.00 per month. There is no contract and may be canceled at any time. Payment is handled by a 3rd party payment provider, Stripe.com. Charges on your statement will be listed as "J. SHIRLEY PROD 3604503915 NV".
