Rocket Scheduler Streak

Hello!

I notice the Rocket Scheduler got a little update with a button with your points for the day on it on the dashboard home page.

When you hover your mouse over it, it says, "My Rocket Scheduler a motivational tool based on the "don't break the chain" method that helps you form good learning habits. Each day you do some German learning, the day will turn green on the Scheduler."

I noticed that Duolingo has recently decided to let your keep your streak going no matter which language you are learning. This is nice if you are studying several languages. I think Rocket Languages should consider it also because it would be nice to just view your progress in each language and as long as you did something each day, you are rewarded with a perfect streak.

Hi Jason - I will add it to the development wish-list!

Maybe it's not completely obvious but if you click the icon then it toggles the Rocket Scheduler (works as a show/hide).

Well, I noticed that too along with the beautiful animation between hidden and visible. I didn't understand why that was necessary. If it was always available so we can see what kind of daily score we have racked up, I would think that hide/show would be useful. But since it is on the dashboard and I spend most of my time inside the lesson, to see what has happened, I have only the star at the left of the screen to go by as far as a progress meter.

I would suggest transposing it to the left of the site and then let the button hide and show the days and scores vertically. If, like Duolingo, it would let you set a daily goal, you could watch it fill with knowledge until you have reached your goal and then you can let it send a little rocket into the star and tell you to go do something useful the rest of the day.

If you have any young kids running around, I'm sure they can give you a better animated idea if you ask them.  Might as well let people share (G+, Like, Twitter) their great streaks also anytime they want instead of just when they hit certain levels in the program. Might help to tie that to the scheduler.

Thank you

Hi Jason - The reason we changed it was that, for new users/members, it was a tad confusing showing the Scheduler by default, rather than My Lessons.

Good idea re displaying todays points by default, although that is different functionality to the show/hide toggle. We might be able to do something with the star area currently displaying in the left hand side. I will look into it.
