Adds an action to the Cards menu in the browse screen to delete the review history of selected cards. Useful if someone has shared a deck with you and forgotten to exclude scheduling information when they exported it.

You beautiful soul this addon is everything I ever wanted. I may be exaggerating a little but that's because anki was pissing me off like no application ever should and this addon saved me. I currently have 18 awesome addons installed but yours was the first one that prompted me to rate and write a review. Thank you so much cheers. For anyone else reading this make sure you sync and Upload to AnkiWeb as soon as you do the modifications

Hi! i am on Anki 2.1.35, -- I had the same exact problem for this version if you've resolved it, id be so grateful to know how! thank you.

Quite useful for testing purpose and sending decks to students, friends, colleagues … and it works OK (v. 2.1.54 & 2.1.49) 😎🙏

You can use the "Forget feature" or "Leech Toolkit" (https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/368380974) to reset the lapse count

After having removed the history of one card, the number of lapses is unchanged. The history of the reviews is indeed deleted but how can I set the number of lapses to zero?

Works! Now I can review cards in the order they were made.

Works like a charm.

simple and perfect

Lives savior. Loved this addon. Thank u so much, dude.
on 1643132178
Solved the problem I had. I had a deck of cards that was showing as if I had reviewed it for years despite me importing it only a couple of months ago. This is because it was a friend's deck. Using the addon solved my problem in a second and I now have a clean state page. Thanks!
on 1641684562
Good, but it does not reset the heatmap, only the cards.
on 1638328400
Great job. But it can't reset the Reviews count, when I removed leaned history, the reviews count was not set to zero.
on 1637803627
Exactly what I was looking for, thanks a lot!

Works fine, thanks!

Worked seamlessly with 2.1.45, Anking 40+addons already installed (removed card history from 1700 cards added from shared decks to correct my stats)
on 1627772480
on 1627699594
Working on 2.1.45 version! How to use: Click on PANEL, select all cards you want to reset, then finally click on CARDS and REMOVE CARD HISTORY.
on 1627227617
Awesome! Works for me on 2.1.44. Removes all of the card's history.

Suggestion: Would be nice if we could selectively remove history before/after a certain date. I found out about this addon a little too late so now some of my cards have some history I want to delete and some history I want to keep.
on 1626892449
Didn't work on 2.1.44. History remains unchanged
on 1626687405
Got the job done! 😋

Doesn't work :'(

It works perfectly, thanks.

Anki version ⁨2.1.41.

Doesn't seem to work on anki 2.1.38. Selected cards and clicked on remove history. It says removed history of the cards, but still shows the same history.
on 1615612565
Extremely useful, we leave the cards as if new new ones!

Does what it says.

Excellent. Does what it says simply and efficiently.

Soooo useful! This should have been built into Anki in the first place.
on 1608286917
Thank you so much for the addon! I've been stressing lately because of this card history issue, but your addon really helped me out. Again, thank you so much!!!
on 1604480444
Hi! i am on Anki 2.1.35, I expected this add on will make the card "brand new", that is erase the review and lapse count, but it only takes the card to the leaning phase. Effectively it does the same as cards> reschedule> place at the end of new card queue . Is is a bug or i am doing sth wrong? (i restated anki after installation, the button, remove card history does appear, but its has somewhat limited power, as i explained earlier). I still hope that maybe i will get some clarification from the Autor and the add on will work well. Best!
on 1599426445
Did exactly what I needed, thank you :)
on 1592366241
? Not working properly for me! Shouldn't the card be reset as new?
on 1590875109
That's what I need.
on 1584285582
It can't work in shared decks(Mine are normal). After perform it, there is nothing happen to my shared decks, They still can't learn again today.
My anki version is {2.1.21}.
on 1584085453
Installed the addon, restarted (required!) Anki and it works well in 2.1.15
I use this extension to reset my own learning schedule on a filtered deck when I go to teach a class.

Great addon, does was it says on the tin
on 1577505668
I'm using Version 2.1.15 (442df9d6) and this add-on does not work. The new entry does appear under menu > cards but does not have any effect.
