Double check your coach settings

I usually do many XP/day, but I have my coach set to 1XP because some days I'm tired or ill. It's been set to 1 for months if not years.

I logged in today to discover that somehow it's set on 20 8-o Granted, like I say, it would not usually be a problem and I regularly check I have a streak freeze enabled, but I could easily have lost my streak by just doing one lesson a day and not realising it had changed.

I don't know if this is a bug, I'm going to report it to Duolingo, but I'm sure I'm not the only creature of habit who has had my coach set on one thing for so long that I could easily have been caught out. As such, I think it would be a good idea for folks to check their coach settings just in case!

1XP is only possible in www.duolingo.com
If you also use the App, then the App will reset your daily goal to 20XP.

If you are using both, then you have to set your daily goal to a minimum of 10 XP in both.

Simply using the app has never reset my goal before, and it's been set to 1XP for, like I said, months if not years. If I was to go into the streak settings in the app, then yes, that can muck it up, but I haven't done that in a year or more.

Simply using the app (I do a mixture of app and website almost every day, and have been doing so for several years now) has never reset it before.

Maybe it is an A/B test in the Android App in many accounts.

I am on iOS so... who knows!

This problem has happened before. Usually it is due to the fact that duolingo sets different goals for the app and the web version.

Thank you! Mine also changed from 1XP to 10XP. It's happened twice and it's really annoying.

I know it used to do it if you went into streak settings within the app (I never go in there any more), but this is the first time I can remember it just resetting randomly one day. I'm going to keep an eye on it for a while and see if it's an ongoing issue.

I have always used the app most of the time and never had my daily goal of one reset. But, I also have never entered the Coach settings on the app.

Mine has been on 1XP for ages without an issue - swap regularly between the app and the website, and it's never changed before. I wouldn't worry about it, just... keep an eye on it!

I've swapped between the app and website several times today to check, and so far it's holding on to my 1XP target, but I'm going to check it on the regular just in case.

Using the mobile app resets my goal to 10 XP sometimes (but not to 20). I also keep my goal at 1 XP, even if usually I do about 300-400 XP a day, because sometimes I'm tired, sick, traveling etc.

yeah it has happened with me too. I chose like 5minutes and 10 xp a day but it went to one minute and two xp a day. Yours went up but mine went down!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sophiar55

i am using a computer. Maybe it is a bug with the mobile device?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ben400

It never happened to me. Still very useful information to other people who might use mobile devices.
