Dear Anki team
once again many thanks for the fantastic job you are doing. The Anki is great and extremely helpful. I use all three versions: desktop, web and iPhone (the best app so far I have bought).
I have a problem with decks: I can not reset them. For instance my friend would like to have my deck to study for few days and he needs to reset the deck but I dont know how to get rid of the Anki memory of study and reset everything just like day one when the deck was designed. appreciate your help.

    In the starting decks menu you need to go to File > Export

    This will bring up your Export screen. You'll want to probably export
    an .apkg file.

    Then you'll want to select a deck to export. (Or you can select all of
    your decks).

    Then you UNCHECK the "Including Scheduling Information" box.

    Keep the media one checked.

    Then hit okay.

    This will export your selected deck, all the cards in it, and any media
    associated with those cards, but it will not have any of the scheduling
    information. In other words, the cards are like new. You can share
    that .apkg file with a friend.

    All they do is just go to File > Import and then select the file that
    you shared with them.

    I hope this helps.
