Hello,

I've created anki cards on the following:
b. 24 new card mcq/day + reviews
i. You must click ‘rebuild’ daily in the RANDOM decks
c. 7 new card saq/day + reviews
i. You must click ‘rebuild’ daily in the RANDOM decks
d. Review cards can be done by subject decks, by MCQ or SAQ main decks, or by random decks
e. Sync each device daily (or more frequently)

So basically I should be getting 24 new MCQ and 7 new SAQ plus reviews. What's happening is I'm getting no new cards or reviews each day. It's telling me I've completed all decks. I've attached below how I set up the filtered decks. Please help!

How to build decks to randomize cards (most useful feature of ANKI)
1. Go to main screen
2. Click on ‘MCQ Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy’
3. Hit ‘F’
4. This opens the filtered deck screen
5. Copy and paste the following line:
deck:"MCQ Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy" is:due
6. Change ‘Limit to’ 999 ‘cards selected by ‘ Random
a. Should look like this
b.
7. Return to main screen by clicking ‘Decks’ at the top
8. Click cogwheel beside ‘Filtered Deck 1’ and click ‘Rename”
9. Copy and paste the following line
MCQ Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy::1. Daily RANDOM MCQ Review
10. This will create a deck that randomizes the MCQ you have previously seen.
11. Repeat the above and this time copy/paste:
a. deck:"MCQ Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy" is:new
b. MCQ Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy::2. Daily RANDOM MCQ New Cards
c. This will create a deck that randomizes New cards you haven’t see yet.
12. To populate the random decks, you must click rebuild daily.
a. Cards wont show up for review until >2days
13. This time using ‘SAQ 2009-2019 Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy’ repeat the above steps using:
a. deck:"SAQ 2009-2019 Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy" is:due
b. SAQ 2009-2019 Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy::1. Daily RANDOM SAQ Review
And
c. deck:"SAQ 2009-2019 Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy" is:new
d. SAQ 2009-2019 Mega Deck COVID 4mo strategy::1. Daily RANDOM SAQ New Cards

    Hi Maria,

    It appears you are following advice from some third party, so they would be the best people to ask if their instructions are not working for you.

    Their instructions seem to have worked for everyone else. I’ve reinstalled and followed them 3 separate times. I can make it work for day 1, but then nothing on day 2.
