Cards not matching up on update

Cards not matching up on update

Postby blarn » Sun Jun 23, 2019 7:02 am

Hi,

I keep track of all my cards in an excel sheet (there is about 5000 of them) - sometimes I make drastic changes to the wording of the question and the answer at the same time. When I perform a "Download / Update", a lot of times I end up with "New Cards" but they're actually existing cards that Flashcards Deluxe couldn't find a match for, so my statistics are getting constantly messed up and it's a bit frustrating. However, I have a column called "ID" in my excel sheet which is unique and consistent - would you consider allowing us to add an optional column called "CardIdentifier" which would guarantee match preservation irrespective of changes to wording?

Thanks!

Hi,

If you change only one side at a time, the app will likely have a better time keeping statistics, if it can make a unique match on at least one side.

The "ID" column should solve this problem. Is your ID numeric? If not, please change to a unique integer and try again. If your ID is already and integer, let me know if you are using iOS or Android and I'll try a test on my end.
