Make it easier to add books to reading challenges
This week
E
electraa

As of now, one has to go to the specific book they want to add to a challenge. instead, it would be much easier for a challenge we have already joined to be able to add directly a book to the prompt we want. otherwise it is very tiring. also, it would be good to be able to add a book on multiple challenges in an easier way than having to select each challenge individually.

This will be happening in stages and will encompass:

  • Any edition in a book family counting when you add a book to a prompt (SHIPPED)
  • A 'one-page experience' when you click to add a book to your reading challenges from the book page, including being able to search and filter prompts (IN PROGRESS)
  • The ability to add any book to a prompt from the prompt page (There's a reason I made sure the main search results dropdown was done before this! πŸ‘€ 😌)

It sounds like y'all are in the process of rolling out changes gradually, but I just want to note that it's a lot harder now to add a book to a challenge from the book page, because the link is buried within other links. If I recall correctly, there used to be a more prominent section for this that drew your eye on the bottom left under the review sidebar.

rlgreen91 We are! The problem is that the flow was difficult for people as you kept on being redirected back to the book page and having to start again.

We needed a way to direct people to a landing page that they could stay on until they were done with their changes. Initially finding the link, especially the first time, will be harder. But, we hope people will get used to the change(s). There's pretty much always an adjustment period when things are moved around, even when things are objectively better for most people (e.g. the recent shifting of the To-Read Pile above Recommendations on the homepage. People, including myself, still mis-click).

That being said, changes are still in-progress and we are listening to your feedback as we implement them. Also, the design of the book page is in itself something that will be improved upon β€” there are other things that people struggle to find, but the main focus of this first step was getting to the new landing page, and not redesigning the page, so adding a link to the already-existing link was an easy option β€” and we recognise that at the moment it's not easy to see if a book has already been added to challenges.

I might be in the minority... But I don't like the new way you add books to a challenge. It’s harder to tell from the book page if a book has been added to any of my challenges.

rebeccap We'll be adding a way to make it clear from the book page if a book has already been added to challenges (by you), and which ones.

Nadia Okay awesome! I almost didn’t comment but every time I went to use that feature it would take me a minute to find the challenges button.

rebeccap Please always comment! I wasn't going to add this change in this body of work but we've heard this feedback from enough people for me to adapt it sooner rather than later. :-D

So excited for this one! Would be a great help for me, since I use the Reading challenges for a lot of organisation

There are some other features (mainly search-related ones) that we need to do before this one!

To add to this suggestion would also be great to be able to see a list of all prompts from challenges you have joined so you can easily find a prompt to add to (I don’t always remember what challenge it is in so have to check each one to place the book)
