We aim to develop a virtual coaching (VC) system which facilitates cancer patients with the formation of positive health habits. The VC should adjust content and delivery of recommendations based on user's preferences. We conducted a survey that elicited potential VC users' perceptions about the appropriate context for notification, aspects driving their motivation, and their ability to perform a selected activity in different circumstances. We analyzed 173 survey responses, identified different types of users and formulated suggestions how to adjust application content and notification timing to increase their susceptibility to non-medication health interventions.
