Logging Chores and Tracking Stats
How do I log a chore?
If you’re doing the dishes, you would say “Alexa, tell House Tracker I’m doing the dishes.”
How does the points system work?
1 chore logged = 1 point
How do I check who last did a chore?
Say “Alexa, ask House Tracker who last did the dishes?”
What if a chore isn’t supported?
Let us know and we’ll add it! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestion.
How do I hear the stats?
