What is the "panic buffer"?

The Android app has an option to set the “panic buffer” for a goal but I don’t see this referenced in the help docs anywhere. What is the panic buffer?

Good question. It was an old option for influencing the sort order in your dashboard. But we killed it and it’s just vestigial in Beedroid now. Thanks for the reminder to get it out of there! cc @adamwolf

Don’t worry, I’m killing most of the anemic settings screen!

The setting screen looks like this. As far as I can tell everything else should stay there! Is there anything else you’re planning on removing?

Ideally we’d be able to adjust some additional settings from the app - I’d like to have the following:

  • retroratchet
  • autoratchet
  • deadline
  • lead days
