Smart Case Feature Request

Hi, I was playing around with the smart case conditions and would like to request a feature, or if it exists already, if you could tell me how to do it that would be awesome.

I am in medical school and I create flashcards for each week's worth of material. I have attached a screenshot of what I am trying to accomplish. Basically, I want to create a smart case for each class I am in, and populate that smart case with cards that I flag from each Week's worth of stacks.

For example: In the respiratory class, there were 3 weeks. So I created a case called "Respiratory" and in that case there are 3 stacks: "Respiratory - Week 1," "Respiratory - Week 2" and "Respiratory - Week 3." As I am studying those cases I would like to flag certain cards to automatically go into the smart case entitled "Respiratory Final Exam." Thus I can pull out the important cards, or the ones I am struggling with and just focus on those.

In the smart case conditions, I can currently choose:
1) Flagged = True
but then when I add a condition such as
2) Stack Contains: Respiratory Week -1. I cannot choose to add Respiratory Week - 2 and Respiratory Week 3.

Is there was a way I could make the conditions to be:
1) Flagged = True
2) Case contains 1 of the following: Respiratory Week - 1 -OR- Respiratory Week - 2 -OR- Respiratory Week 3

Thank you for your help. I hope I didn't confuse you with my terrible explanation! Thanks again for this program, it's getting me through med school!

    Hi Chip,
    A couple of things that might help:

    1) You can put notes in multiple non-smart stacks by holding alt when you drag them in. So you could have notes in weekly stacks, and in an exam stack. (Only the first stack is used for scheduling.)

    2) You can make rules like "stack begins with 'Respiratory'". If you are careful in your naming, I think you could use smart cases how you describe.

    Hope that helps.

    Kind regards,
