This add-on was collaborative effort between The AnKing and Glutanimate. Please consider supporting our work using the links below so we can continue to fund add-on projects like this. Exam Notifier provides users with notifications that a card will appear after an upcoming exam date. This feature allows the user to determine how to answer the card (i.e. Again, Hard, Good, Easy) or determine if rescheduling the card is deemed necessary. For example, a user may struggle with a particular subject and despite their ability to answer the card correctly, that they would like to revist these cards on the days leading up to their exam. Many of us use Anki to prepare for exams. Some of us use Anki to learn a language in preparation for a trip to another country. Exam Notifier will tell you which cards are set to reappear after your test date. For example, if my big exam is coming up in 27 days and the current card is set to reappear in 28 days, this addon will notify you of this fact and give you the option to reschedule that card to reappear sooner for further review(s). Screenshots How to use Go to the options for your deck. There you can check "enable exam notifier for this deck" and set an Exam Name and date. Exam notifier will then notify you if a card will be scheduled past that due date when hitting the "Good" button Watch this AnKing YouTube tutorial for a more detailed explanation! This add-on works on Anki 2.1.41+ and will work on qt5 or qt6 versions of Anki. Problems, Bugs, Errors, Improvements If you find a serious bug, please submit it on Github.

it is a great add-on. The only thing to improve is because box is too big and appear under certain cards like immage occlusion. Also it will be great if there some way to select the box tools with a keyboard click

Would it be possible to add compatibility with filtered decks?

Really useful. Would be nice if it would be possible to add more than just one exam.

Honestly stellar addon; many thanks for the creation of it.

A couple of notes/requests: if it were possible to alter the location of the pop-up notification that would be a very welcome detail.

Also, and I'm not sure to what to ascribe it, but I see that sometimes the addon does not recognize a card whose interval would fall beyond an exam date. I'm using the addon for a class that I'm currently in, and while it catches about 80% of the cards, it seems to not 'recognize' that some would be pushed beyond the exam date. I can note that it seems to be cards that are 'just beyond' the exam date (whose interval would land a day or two beyond the date I have set for the upcoming exam). Is it perhaps treating differently cards that are still in the 'learning' phase? Just a thought.

The learning phase issue is a known issue we're workign on. Changing locations is also an idea we've had and hopefully something we can add in a future update!

Works great. Would be nice if the notification box would fade away after a set amount of time (5 s, for example) so I don't have to click the x every time it covers something I want to look at.
Edit -- I'm thinking it's 2 days off for some reason...

Super helpful! As others have stated, potentially relocating the pop-up to a region that does not obstruct card content and upcoming review intervals would be highly beneficial. Potentially one of the upper corners.

It would be even more awesome if it was also available for filtered decks.

Not working on 2.1.56 QT6
UPDATE: It works, but only when I use the shift + options of a deck to set up the add on

Works great. Would it be possible to add a hotkey function to close the pop-up window? Sometimes it blocks the card content, and a hotkey be great for people who don’t like to use the mouse

You guys are the best :)
You know that feeling when you're smashing the space bar but you're always calculating whether you'll see a card again before your exam. That feeling no longer exists thanks to this add on.

Phenomenal add-on, was working great in the beta and works perfectly now. Highly recommend for anyone going to take Step 1 or even any other exams period.

Maybe in the future we can choose tags instead of decks?
