Karma frequency

Hi Todoist,

I really like the new Karma addition as it's helped me be a little more realistic on what I schedule each day/week and pushing me not to roll-over tasks to future days.

There's a maximum number of points to be gained from any time period - 51 beginner, 32 intermediate, etc. However, one small point is the time period to gain these Karma points can be quite varied - between 1 hour and 9 hours! This leads to a productive 1 hour of say 6 tasks counting the same as a productive 9 hours with 20+ tasks completed.

Is there any way the calculation periods can be more consistent? Not sure if this is linked to time zones with more frequent periods throughout the day if you're in the right time zone.

Thanks and keep on innovating!

Hello Tim,

We're glad you like this feature. The varying times of updates are intended. It's a complex algorithm that's supposed to make the update times variable and unpredictable. If you keep your productivity steady each day, you will certainly gain more Karma than you lose and there are much more ways to increase than to decrease Karma.

Best regards,
