"Can't listen/speak right now" on website

Hi, This feature which is on phones, does it have website equivalent? "Can't listen/speak right now" The "Skip" button deducts points which is not fair, and it is a chore to access the settings page all the time depending on which few minutes of the day i chose for a Duo session :) Thanks guys.

I'd like to skip the listening exercises but it will not let me.

On the web version, mouse over your user name for the drop down menu and click on Settings.

Hi, thanks for your response but as you would see if you actually read the question the idea is to avoid having to toggle it multiple times a day

I didn't understand. I thought you didn't like the phone feature, when actually you liked that. It does not really take very much time to change the setting. So you are asking to have that feature included on the computer, I personally find that phone feature annoying. I set it to be quiet when I want it to be, but it goes and asks me anyway every hour. Why does it think I have the sound off? It still has to tell me the sound is off. Then, I may now be able to make noise and listen to it before the hour that it gives you without sound is up.

Notifications should be managed separately in each phone's settings, this is only related to the Speaker and Microphone exercises within the lessons
