How to use the next-generation spaced repetition algorithm FSRS on Anki?

I believe you still need the add-on for that. Not all functionality has been ported to Anki.

And apart from my former question:
Is there a recommendation for the ‘New interval’ setting? (only available in the old deck settings)

(Especially with the relearning steps not set above one day, I could imagine it generates quite a lot of leeches…)

The helper add-on hasn’t been obsolete. Dae said that:

I would like to integrate Free Days in the future, and maybe advance/postpone/load balancing at a later date (some thought will be required to ensure they are efficient, and don’t result in the entire collection’s cards being synced each time the user uses them). I’m not so sure about sibling dispersal, and will need to give that more thought.


I use the ankidroid 2.17 alpha-5 version. Should i uncheck auto reschedule cards? I do most of my reviews on phone. How can i use the load balance feature of FSRS Helper?

Load balance hasn’t been integrated into Anki. So you need to check auto reschedule after sync.

Should i turn off FSRS on my phone as well? I can check my PC every day.

It’s unnecessary to turn off FSRS on your phone. I’m afraid that setting could be sync into your PC.

I’d like to apply different presets for each subject. For this instance, i should create “Dahiliye” preset and apply it to “Dahiliye” deck and all of its subdecks, right? And the same thing for “Patoloji” and “Farmakoloji”

Yes. It’s correct.

What should i do with mother deck “TUS”?

You don’t need to do anything with the mother deck.

So it can stay in “Default” preset, right?


Would you recommend having one deck and tags or having multiple subdecks? Right now, I study Pathology of Cardiology. Each of my lectures are 1 hour long. So i have “Pathology” deck and “Cardiology” subdeck. As i have my lectures, i make cards and put them in subdecks like “Lecture 1”, “Lecture 2” etc.(I don’t use tags this way)// Should i stop doing this and put all my Pathology/Cardiology cards into Cardiology deck and tag them according to the topic we covered in the lecture? If so, why?

It depends if you want to study each chapter separately or just study whole material at once.

study each chapter separately - get sub-decks
study whole material at once - put it in the main deck

Thanks :blush: I am not sure which one would be better for me. I am going to try both and decide that way.

I just got this error. What should i do?

Could you give me the steps to reproduce this bug?

It happened after i applied habitica addon fix
I replaced file with the fix.
I went back to my original file and now it’s fine. Sad i can’t use them both though :frowning:

What’s that? Maybe I can check that and make them compatible.
