Order of reviews (German/ English)

Hallo liebes Forum,

ich habe zwei Probleme mit der Wiederholung der Anki-Karteikarten.

  1. Beim Lernen neuer Karten werden die Karteikarten nicht in der Reihenfolge ihrer Erstellung gezeigt, sondern mehr zufällig, obwohl in den Einstellungen ausgewählt wurde, dass sie nach Erstelldatum gezeigt werden sollen.
    Gibt es hier eine Lösung?

  2. Wenn ich alte Karten wiederhole, werden auch diese nicht nach Erstelldatum, sondern zufällig gezeigt. Gibt es hier außer benutzerdefinierten Stapeln eine Möglichkeit, nach Erstelldatum zu wiederholen? Ich nutze Fragenfolgen, was eine Wiederholung nach dem Zufallsprinzip schwierig macht.

Über Hilfe wäre ich sehr dankbar!

Hello dear forum,

I have two problems with the repetition of the Anki flashcards.

  1. when learning new cards, the flashcards are not shown in the order in which they were created, but more randomly, although it was selected in the settings that they should be shown by creation date.
    Is there a solution here?

  2. when I repeat old cards, these are also not shown by creation date, but randomly. Is there a way to repeat by creation date other than custom stacks? I use sequences of questions, which makes random repetition difficult.

I would be very grateful for any help!

For part 2, I am not sure how you could guarantee that old cards are shown in order of creation date. It conflicts with the fundamental idea of spaced repetition that Anki uses. After all, after you individually rate each card a few times (Again/Hard/Good/Easy), cards that were originally created together will become dispersed to different dates.

For part 1, I think you could do it by setting “New card gather order” to “Ascending position”, and then setting “New card sort order” to “Order gathered”. And then set “New/review order” to either “Show after reviews” or “Show before reviews”, if you want to avoid mixing new and old cards.


First of all, thank you very much for your help!
Part 1 has been answered, I have now set everything up correctly.
Unfortunately, I worded the second question a little awkwardly.
I’m actually wondering whether there is a way to learn the cards that I created first within the cards due that day. This would allow me to continue to benefit from the spaced repetition effect, but I could also learn at least some of the cards in a structure if cards happen to appear at the same time. My problem is that the older cards often relate to general structures and the newer ones to the corresponding individual problems.
Is this possible?

I don’t think the settings let you do that. Perhaps there is some add-on. I have no idea, sorry.

If the older cards have some kind of tag associated with them, or some other distinctive characteristics of the content of their fields, then you could try creating filtered decks based on those tags or characteristics and study them first.

Apart from personalized study, there is no way. What you could do is that when making the custom deck, select the option “Reschedule cards, based on my answers in this deck”, so that you can study with the options “again”, “hard”, “good”, " easy", and that the results are saved by the algorithm.

The only way to do it is
entering the desired deck and creating a “custom study” and then configuring it to appear according to “added order”


  1. Enter the desired deck
  2. Select “custom study”
  3. "Study by card state or tag
  4. Place the same number of questions from the deck or more in “Select__cards from the deck”
  5. Select "All cards in random order (don’t reschedule)
  6. Optional: if you want you can filter the flashcards by tag
  7. Ok
  8. Options
  9. In the “filter” section ► In the drop-down menu, select “Order added”
  10. In options (within the same general options box), you can choose the desired algorithm, in this case “Reschedule cards, based on my answers in this deck”
  11. Rebuild

Thank you very much!
