Karma Update


New to Todoist, how often does kara update? I have been using the tool daily, but the last kara point update was 4 days ago?

All responses

Hi John,

We have varying times of updates, which are intended. It's a complex algorithm that's supposed to make the update times variable and unpredictable.

The amount of points you get depends on what you do, how many times did you complete a task, postpone a task?

Complex algorithms aside, my Karma generally is updated three to five times per day. I now have over 5000 Karma points and the number of points per update has decreased as my total points have increased, but the number of updates per day doesn't seem to have decreased.

I can understand that the updates are variable, but I have been active daily (adding, compleating, using labels, projects, etc) and no updates in 4 days just seems odd to me.

Hello John,

I have passed this to the developer and we'll check on our end why your Karma didn't update.

Best regards,
