Inconsistent number of students in track

Hi! :wave:

I just saw an inconsistency about the number of students in a track.
I cleared my cache but it didn’t change anything.
About the other pages, “Overview” and “Exercises” show 1,077 students and “About” shows 1,080.

It’s not a big deal. It’s just to keep track (no pun intended :smile:).

Ha, I noticed this one before when I was switching around tabs in a track
It seem like the bold number in build status, and the small one on top of when you switch to overview/exercise are the same so that must be the correct one.

My uneducated guess would be the “about” and “build status” pages are bit more static so they dont get dynamic live updated number of learners.

Also I noticed something new (to me at least) while looking at this, there is small pop up notification saying a leaner (with name) has just published a solution.

The 1077 number is calculated once every night, so it’ll be behind the actual number.

edit: that said, we could just use the other number

If it’s already calculated and retrieved, why not? :smile:

Thanks for the explanation. :wink:
