Finished Button for Currently Reading
Mar 4, 2021
Currently, there is no I'm finished button when currently reading a book so it would be great if there was instead of just flipping it back to Read.
If it would be possible to add the Finished Button, possibly up higher than the Update bar, that way it would not be as easy to accidentally update incorrectly.
If it still is an issue, would it be possible to have a modal box to confirm? I know modals can be annoying, but is a good way to stop people from accidentally updating
Also when you click Finish the book it automatically would take you to the Review page vs having to to read and than click into review?
I wonder if it also might be an option to have a Finished button that appears under the progress bar with the other options when you click the Edit icon.
This would provide easy access to mark a book complete and add the new info to your stats, but it would also avoid the mishap of the system automatically marking a book complete if you did not mean to update the progress bar to 100%.
That's a great idea as that is one of my worries — accidental progress updates, which would then be a pain to reverse...
Yes, I have found the 'read' [reed] vs. 'read' [red] a bit unhelpful. Perhaps 'read' [red] could be changed to the clearer 'have read' ...?
That would be great Abbie! Thank you for the heads up!
Hey sharperthoughts! The 'read' option is technically the 'I'm finished' button, just worded differently :-D
But we are planning something similar with currently-reading updates - when you mark it as '100%', it will automatically mark as complete!
