On the website, each Habit, Daily, and To Do has an Advanced Settings section that is available in edit mode. Although using the Advanced Settings can be helpful, it is not absolutely necessary to use them. Since Advanced Settings are task specific, when a player edits the Advanced Settings of a task, only the single task being edited is affected.
Finding Advanced Settings
By default, the Advanced Settings can appear automatically when a player edits a task. A player can change their Settings (click the "site" under Settings) if they want this section to start collapsed when editing a task (check the "Advanced Settings in tasks start collapsed" option in the menu). If a player makes this selection, they can still view the Advanced Settings by clicking on the link in the task menu.
Task Stat Selection
|Workaround: To do this use the Task Adjustor to set your tasks to the correct options. Alternatively you can use the Android App or iOS to select the option you want.|

The Stats will appear only if the player has selected task-based auto-allocation as the method for assigning points to character stats. Details on how points are allocated to stats based on these settings can be found here.
Using the Advanced Settings section, players can change the streak count of a Daily and Habit. This setting is extremely useful. For a daily, when a player completes a task but forgets to check off its Daily. Although the Daily's streak count will automatically reset to zero, the player can manually restore the streak to maintain accuracy - as well as the player's motivation. It can also be used to set Habit and Daily streaks when players use one of the Start Over Options, particular the Orb of Rebirth.
