Title: "Pause" feature
Post by: bubulac on January 19, 2009, 05:55:55 AM
I have about 2000 words in one of my Stackz files now, I am planning to go on a vacation for a few weeks, and I am horrified at the thought that upon coming back I will find everything orange! It will take me weeks to go through hundreds and hundreds of words and bring everything up to date.
It would be very useful to have a "Pause" button of some kind, so that I can freeze all the stacks as they are when I am leaving, and defreeze them once I am back.
Or, alternatively, is there any other way to do this that I have not discovered yet?...

Thanks,
Cristian

(I still have about 5 months until I have to leave, so I really hope there will be a way developed until then...)

What you are looking for is called "revert to last test", which can be found in the "admin" submenu of the stack context menu. This function moves all test statistics forward for the number of days without any tests.

Some Additional notes:
Learning breaks are not really a special situation for the Stackz system because highlighting all cards that have not been refreshed for a certain period is the one fundamental function of Stackz. Sure, the highlighting refresh interval that has been useful during an intensive learning phase will highlight much more cards after a learning break, most likely leading to a situation where “everything must be refreshed”.

There are three ways how one can cope with this situation:

A long discussion in german can be found in this forum, where Stackz users discuss the same thing:

I just wanted to suggest exactly the same feature! Thanks Chris and bubulac for your posts!
