Is the Review Forecast supposed to be accurate?

I ask this because it seems the my reviews become available long before the forecast says they will be. I don’t understand the point of the forecast if it’s not giving me the correct time that the reviews become available…?

Mine are accurate. I wonder if computer magic is afoot

Other than some kind of bug you’re experiencing, the one thing I can think of is that review forecasts are based on you not doing any other reviews or lessons in the intervening time. For instance, if you have some apprentice reviews now, and nothing else for the rest of the day, and then you do the reviews, the items will move to the next stages, which may be later in the same day. The system couldn’t have predicted when you’d do the reviews or how well you’d do, so it couldn’t forecast more items for later in the day until you did the other reviews.

Some people have also claimed that their forecast is using the wrong time zone image

Which browser are you using? It may be interfering with the forecast showing local time instead of Portland Oregon time.

Well, yeah, that would shift things a bit.

Well, in my case the forecast is in UTC. So, it is a valid timezone just not the one I live in.

Personally I don’t mind though, since I do WK related stuff on a schedule. But if people wish to do reviews as soon as they come in this may be little bit confusing, I guess.

How do you see what time zone your forecast is in?

I don’t know if you can see it somewhere.

When I started with WK I run into a similar situation as OP. So, after taking a lesson I calculated the difference between the time in the forecast and my actual time. Since I knew the first review for the new items should be two hours after taking the lesson. Then I checked online what timezone that would be. (Does my explanation make any sense? :sweat_smile: )

In my case they’re accurate literally down to a minute on my main PC and phone, but both use a network time daemon to sync the clock. Maybe the WK server does as well?

Sounds like a timezone issue as others have said.

If it is a time zone issue, how do you fix it?

When navigating the WK forums, top right corner (your avatar). Then, Preferences → Profile → Timezone. Check whether you can enforce it there.

Forum settings have no effect on WK
