Hello all, i am looking for an addon that consider real time beetween 2 learning interval, sorry for my english, I think what i explain is not understandable, so there is an exemple, i have some learned card that i was needed to review last month, but the interval is like 4 days, so when I will review the cards, i want the algoritme to consider that the interval was a month and not just 4 days, because if i answer correctly, even if i should have seen it last month, i want to the next interval to be like 2weeks for hard, 1month for nomal and 2month if it was easy, and not 4 days just beaucause of the interval, i have 33k cards to view/review before december and if easy cards are coming it will make me loose a lot of time, I hope I was understandable and sorry for english natives that have probably threw up their brain like 3 or 4 times when reading this.

Basically I search an addon that consider real interval, and not the â€śdefaultâ€ť one.

thanks hunks

There are plenty of add-ons that let you customise intervals, but why not use Ankiâ€™s internal options?
You can set the interval for â€śeasyâ€ť new cards and the interval bonus factor for â€śeasyâ€ť review cards.

Anki usually takes the actual interval into account, see https://docs.ankiweb.net/#/studying?id=falling-behind and https://faqs.ankiweb.net/due-times-after-a-break.html

But this only applies to cards in the state â€śreviewâ€ť. Newly introduced cards are in a â€ślearningâ€ť stage, see https://docs.ankiweb.net/#/studying?id=study-overview . Cards in learning use fixed intervals that donâ€™t adjust to a delay. I donâ€™t think that this is ideal but itâ€™s not a problem for me because I donâ€™t have too many or too long learning steps.

The idea behind this additional â€ślearningâ€ť stage is that people have all kind of different ideas how often and at which intervals they want to see new cards. Also in general if you fail a card or rate a card as hard itâ€™s better to use shorter intervals in the future. But you are more likely to fail cards that you just started so that actually a failure at this stage doesnâ€™t mean that (contrary to the general rule) not all future intervals should be shorter.

Thereâ€™s a quite popular (and very long) video how the scheduler actually works at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XaJjbCSXT0

You have 33k cards to review in 33 days.
It does not matter what the intervals are â€“ you will see cards only once.
You are in binary mode:

1. You remember the card --> hit Spacebar
2. Can not recall - hit Again ( i suggest 5 m step; you may use it more than once and then - hit Easy ; set the Easy to 60d ).

Will it work? If not, i have 99 more workarounds
