We’re excited to officially announce a couple new tools on the dashboard: the review forecast and illustrated, you-can’t-miss-them lesson and review buttons. It’s all up right now on the preview server, and will be live for everyone next Monday, March 9.
We announced this a little while ago, but here are the highlights.
- The review forecast does just what it claims: it shows when new reviews will show up, broken down by the day and then the hour in a simple, easy-to-scan format. It shows new things being added to your queue without any predictions — it’s a forecast of what happens if you don’t do anything. After you do reviews and come back to the dashboard, the forecast changes to reflect the availability of all the items you just reviewed.
- The illustrated lesson and review buttons are, well, buttons that, uh, have illustrations. Since those two things are what everybody should be doing on WaniKani, we’re calling them out front and center. As the counts change, so do the illustrations.
- We took away a couple things to make room for all this: the “available now”, “next hour” and “next day” sections up top. The buttons and the forecast cover the information those sections delivered.
So, give it a whirl and, once more, share what you think. We probably won’t re-invent the sections, but we’re open to feedback for future tweaks and improvements. Thanks in advance for the time and considered feedback!
