Multi-select cards to DUE

Multi-select cards to DUE

Postby locke » Sun Feb 10, 2019 8:48 pm

Hi, haven't used FCD for quite a while. Recently I've been picking up my study with FCD and think it would be great if I could designate a fixed time of a day to review all the due cards so that I can arrange my study plan more efficiently, so is there any possibility to add an option in the Set Status menu where I can mutilselect all the cards which are due today and set them to Due Now? Thanks.

I recommend not to do so but if you like ...
On the main screen, edit, advanced, push back due date, enter a negative value. This will push closer to now while a positive number will push into future e.g. for holiday time.

Thanks Katja for the input/idea!

Hi locke,

If it's say noon and you want all cards due for the rest of the day. Push cards back by "-.5" days. Do your studying. The extra problem is that you'll want to push cards back by ".5" days at the end of the day to return them to their "normal" position.

On my to do list is to do something like this... specify that at say 10am you want all cards that will be due within the next 24 hours shown at this time. But it's not high priority for me at this time so not sure when I'll get to it. I think this what you are asking for.

What you might try is:
1) change "due card priority" to "oldest due". This will prioritize cards that have been due the longest
2) just study what is due at your selected study time(s), and what you have time for, and then ignore any new cards card that happen throughout the day. Pick up the next day.

Another issue I want to tackle eventually is smoothing out due cards over multiple days, as they can sometime bunch up.

Glad to see that it is on your list. Guess I'm gonna wait till it comes. Thanks.
