faqQuestion13 What is a Group Plan?
webFaqAnswer13 ## How do Group Plans work?

A [Group Plan](/group-plans) gives your Party or Guild access to a shared task board that’s similar to your personal task board! It’s a shared Habitica experience where tasks can be created and checked off by anyone in the group.

There are also features available like member roles, status view, and task assigning that give you a more controlled experience. [Visit our wiki](https://habitica.fandom.com/wiki/Group_Plans) to learn more about our Group Plans’ features!

## Who benefits from a Group Plan?

Group Plans work best when you have a small team of people who want to collaborate together. We recommend 2-5 members.

Group Plans are great for families, whether it’s a parent and child or you and a partner. Shared goals, chores, or responsibilities are easy to keep track of on one board.

Group Plans can also be useful for teams of colleagues that have shared goals, or managers that want to introduce their employees to gamification.

## Quick tips for using Groups

Here are some quick tips to get you started with your new Group. We’ll provide more details in the following sections:

* Make a member a manager to give them the ability to create and edit tasks
* Leave tasks unassigned if anyone can complete it and it only needs done once
* Assign a task to one person to make sure no one else can complete their task
* Assign a task to multiple people if they all need to complete it
* Toggle the ability to display shared tasks on your personal board to not miss anything
* You get rewarded for the tasks you complete, even multi-assigned
* Task completion rewards aren’t shared or split between Team members
* Use task color on the team board to judge the average completion rate of tasks
* Regularly review the tasks on your Team Board to make sure they are still relevant
* Missing a Daily won’t damage you or your team, but the task will degrade in color

## How can others in the group create tasks?

Only the group leader and managers can create tasks. If you’d like a group member to be able to create tasks, then you should promote them to be a manager by going to the Group Information tab, viewing the member list, and clicking the dot icon by their name.

## How does assigning a task work?

Group Plans give you the unique ability to assign tasks to other group members. Assigning a task is great for delegating. If you assign a task to someone, then other members are prevented from completing it.

You can also assign a task to multiple people if it needs to be completed by more than one member. For example, if everyone has to brush their teeth, create a task and assign it to each group member. They will all be able to check it off and get their individual rewards for doing so. The main task will show as complete once everyone checks it off.

## How do unassigned tasks work?

Unassigned tasks can be completed by anyone in the group, so leave a task unassigned to allow any member to complete it. For example, taking out the trash. Whoever takes out the trash can check off the unassigned task and it will show as completed for everyone.

## How does the synchronized day reset work?

Shared tasks will reset at the same time for everyone to keep the shared task board in sync. This time is visible on the shared task board and is determined by the group leader’s day start time. Because shared tasks reset automatically, you will not get a chance to complete yesterday’s uncompleted shared Dailies when you check in the next morning.

Shared Dailies will not do damage if they are missed, however they will degrade in color to help visualize progress. We don’t want the shared experience to be a negative one!

## How do I use my Group on the mobile apps?

While the mobile apps don’t fully support all Group Plans functionality yet, you can still complete shared tasks from the iOS and Android app. On the browser version of Habitica, go to your group’s shared task board and turn on the copy tasks toggle. Now all open and assigned shared tasks will display on your personal task board across all platforms.

## What’s the difference between a Group’s shared tasks and Challenges?

Group Plan shared task boards are more dynamic than Challenges, in that they can constantly be updated and interacted with. Challenges are great if you have one set of tasks to send out to many people.

Group Plans are also a paid feature, while Challenges are available free to everyone.

You cannot assign specific tasks in Challenges, and Challenges do not have a shared day reset. In general, Challenges offer less control and direct interaction.
iosFaqAnswer7 At level 10, you can choose to become a Warrior, Mage, Rogue, or Healer. (All players start as Warriors by default.) Each Class has different equipment options, different Skills that they can cast after level 11, and different advantages. Warriors can easily damage Bosses, withstand more damage from their tasks, and help make their Party tougher. Mages can also easily damage Bosses, as well as level up quickly and restore Mana for their party. Rogues earn the most gold and find the most item drops, and they can help their Party do the same. Finally, Healers can heal themselves and their Party members.

If you don't want to choose a Class immediately -- for example, if you are still working to buy all the gear of your current class -- you can tap “Cancel” and choose later by opening the Menu, tapping the Settings icon, then tapping “Enable Class System”.

iosFaqAnswer6 Every time you complete a task, you'll have a random chance at receiving an Egg, a Hatching Potion, or a piece of Pet Food. They will be stored in Menu > Items.

webFaqAnswer9 First, you need to join or start a Party by clicking "Party" in the navigation bar. Although you can battle monsters alone, we recommend playing in a group, because this will make quests much easier. Plus, having a friend to cheer you on as you accomplish your tasks is very motivating! Next, you need a Quest Scroll, which are stored under Inventory > Quests. There are four ways to get a scroll:
* When you invite people to your Party, you'll be rewarded with the Basi-List Scroll!
* At level 15, you get a Quest-line, i.e., three linked quests. More Quest-lines unlock at levels 30, 40, and 60 respectively.
* You can buy Quests from the Quests Shop (Shops > Quests) for Gold and Gems.
* When you check in to Habitica a certain number of times, you'll be rewarded with Quest Scrolls. You earn a Scroll during your 1st, 7th, 22nd, and 40th check-ins.
To battle the Boss or collect items for a Collection Quest, simply complete your tasks normally, and they will be tallied into damage overnight. (Reloading may be required to see the Boss's Health bar go down.) If you are fighting a Boss and you missed any Dailies, the Boss will damage your Party at the same time that you damage the Boss. After level 11 Mages and Warriors will gain Skills that allow them to deal additional damage to the Boss, so these are excellent classes to choose at level 10 if you want to be a heavy hitter.
