Re-Add a Set of lessons

April 28, 2010, 12:39 AM posted in General Discussion

Hi, I'm a new user of CPod and I just found what I think it's a bug.

Previously I've added a few sets to my lessons lists, by mistake I deleted these lessons on "My Lessons" page and when I go back to the Set to bookmark it again I just see an "Added" Image where the Bookmark button used to be.

As a consequence I need to bookmark all the lessons manually.

Is there a way I can add the whole set again instead of doing it manually?

I guess things have changed since this post by fercasa83. As amesburygeorge and I have been saying here,

we're finding it impossible to Add back lessons we've Removed, and need some recourse.

Fortunately in my case because the lessons I had Removed were a Set (but when Removing I found it impossible for some reason to do so by Set, had to pick each lesson off individually), I have since found it possible to call them back, though not in a satisfactory way. In Manage Lessons from the drop-down menu I chose the Set (under Labeled Lessons) to Show. So those "came back" with the garbage can icons. In the same way, if you had given a lesson some label in Manage Lessons, you can call it back by asking to Show lessons with that Label.

Then I selected those lessons to Mark as Studied. There isn't anything else you can do with them. Actually I had already studied 10 of the 14 lessons, so now only four of my Studied lessons are falsely labeled so. I will now get to work on those as priority ...

I also have since found that on the individual lesson pages for those "salvaged" lessons I can toggle the status, but only between Studied and Removed. Please enable us to Add back (Bookmark) also.

I think we should be able to mark status freely--Studied, Bookmarked, Removed, or even Added by Group (this, because we obviously Remove by mistake) on the lesson page. Then the status for every lesson should be updated and showing correctly everywhere throughout the site. This also is currently not really happening. Managing Lessons is very inconvenient as is.

I agree I accidently removed a few lessons and now cant add them back to my que.  There is only a button stating lesson removed.  Now I have to listen to this lesson while on the internet and cant load it to my ipod.  Very frustrating.

I was intending to mark that lesson as studied, and accidentally removed it. Now I can do nothing to fix it.

Hi, this is Peter. I'm the customer service specialist here at ChinesePod. The problem you're referring to is a bug in our system where you cannot change the lesson status of a removed lesson. Our tech team is working on this problem and we're hoping to have it fix next week. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Thanks for acknowledging this Peter. Glad to hear the problem is being worked on, as it is quite inconvenient.

While the tech team are at this, I would suggest that someone test all the functions that Manage Lessons is supposed to have. Many of them aren't working now actually.

Thanks Peter for your response.
