Daylio offers 5 basic moods. You can edit those, to change emoji and name. You can also change the emoji colors and emoji style. See below how to edit mood.
ℹ️ Tip from Pros
It's always better to start with 5 moods which will make flow simple and speedy. If you add too many moods too early, the form might get complicated and defeat its purpose. You can always add moods later.
