iOS Coach problem

I am having trouble with the coach feature on iOS. I would do the necessary lessons for the day, and it says that I made my goal. However, when I come back the next day, it says that I did not make the goal for the previous day.

I also found out that I would make the number of lessons for the day, and switch the base language, and then I come back to the original language, it will not say that I made the goal of the day even though minutes prior it did.

Thank you for the link, but my problem is not with coach on duolingo.com. In face, I do not have the coach on the website; I am not in the a/b test.

My problem is with the coach on my iPhone/iPad. That is where it is messed up.

I think that I want to clarify what exactly is going wrong. I have set the coach on my iPhone and iPad to 20 XP per day for everything.

I am currently doing the following courses:

Spanish from English, Spanish from French, Spanish from Portuguese, French from Spanish, and Portuguese from Spanish

The only courses where the coach is working as intended is French from Spanish and Portuguese from Spanish. All the others they do not.

I at least pass three lessons per day per course. So, between 30 XP to 36 XP per course depending on how many hearts I lose. This will make me make my coach limit for everything. However, when I switch courses or go back the next day, the coach says that I did not make the limit.

Hope this clarifies things.

If you mean that it doesn't show you as "complete" in each course, then that's accurate. It's course specific as far as I have seen. And, it changes around midnight (not sure what time your account was created), so the goal doesn't stay completed into the next day, only for the remainder of that day, I believe.

But the previous day shows a red X and not a green check mark and it says that I have a Zero day streak.

Have you tried removing the app from Multitasking/deleting the app? If yes, then it sounds like you should send something into [email protected] with a summary of your problem. I'll flag this discussion in my inbox so I don't forget and get back to you sometime next week to see if the problem has remedied itself/been solved by Support.

Yea I've already done that. I've already sent an email to support earlier today.

The app should say I'm 9 days on track but it currently only shows that I'm 1 day on track.
