One year retention as Smart Stack rule

How do I key in a value for this rule-- as a percentage? as a decimal??

For instance for 80 or more:
one year retention is greater than _____

   .70? 70? .79? (do I use a decimal point? must be rounded to tenths?)

    It should be a decimal up to 1.0. You should be able to test quite easily to see if it works.

    Kind regards,

    I was testing it out with one particular card in mind, but wasn't yielding it in the results and wasn't sure what the input should be. I must have screwed up a parameter. I can see it working now when i use the decimal point.

    It might not refresh immediately. I think those particular searches are cached, because they take a long time to calculate. So it might take a while to refresh.

    There appears to be a problem with this parameter. It allows me to select an option of either greater than or less than a chosen percentage. When I choose to include only notes with a One Year Retention of greater than 0.90, it still includes cards that show only 9 green dots in the One Year Retention scale.

    For instance, in my stack named "ADD -1Z" is a Question and Answer style note with the first facet content being "property" and the second facet being "propiedad". Only the first facet may be a prompt, and 10 green dots show in the Month Retention scale and 9 green dots appear in the One Year Retention scale. Yet it is still included in the results (along with many others that I would expect not to appear).

    If I change the percentage to 0.89, it is still included.

    Not following. If you have something with 9 dots, I guess it has 90% or more retention. So it should be included if you set a rule for more than 0.89 (more than 89%).

    Sorry. I rushed a bit to type that up before I headed out and I think I lost my train of thought. I was looking at different cards, and now I'm not sure what I meant to say. But I see now that the results I was looking at were not refreshing because I had a search term in the Filter Notes window. When you change a Smart Stack parameter but have a search term in Filter Notes, you have to do something to refresh the Filter, like delete the last letter of the search term and retype it.

    But at any rate, playing around with it some more, I take it that a Retention Rate of 0.85 to 0.94 will display 9 green dots for a note that has only one facet as a prompt. (Reversible Notes apparently come up with some kind of average for the rates for each prompt).

    0.75 to 0.84 will display 8 green dots, and so on. Is this correct?

    I believe it is as you suggest. It rounds to the nearest integer.
