The number in that progress box is the number of mentor discussions where the student has ended the session. I know that as we did it recently, but I don’t have memory of exactly what the other number is. I guess it’s the number of sessions ended by the mentor (including those not also yet ended by the student).
You shouldn’t be getting further away. I can’t promise you’re not, but I can’t see why that would be the case
Right now i have 49 ended sessions, but only 47 is shown in the automation tab. I recall me being the first to end the session once maybe twice. I’m pretty sure though that the student also ended the session after me. So could it be that those sessions which are first ended by the mentor are never counted in the automation tab? It could be a bug.
