Does protecting a tag prevent the notes in the tag from being erased or the card from being erased?

For example, if I add the tag “video_watched” to a set of cards, will my created tag be deleted with syncing? Does protecting the tag preserve the tag itself or the content inside the tagged card?


Your tags would be saved, if they have been protected on AnkiHub
Here’s how to do that: Protecting Fields and Tags

Protecting a tag would protect only the tag from being suggested to AnkiHub

In order to protect the content, you would need to protect the respective field, here’s how to do that: Protecting Fields and Tags

Protecting the tag only prevents it from being shown to us when you suggest a change.

If you want to protect the changes you made in a card, you can right click on the card and click AnkiHub_Protect, then select the fields you want to protect

Edit: I believe I was incorrect in terms of tag protection, if you want your tags to not get deleted. Protect the tags so they do not get lost!

Is there a way to get tags back? I didn’t protect my tags and did not have any issues for a few months but recently my older tags disappeared. I went back to my backups and saw that it happened 5 days ago. I don’t want to use that backup because I’ve done anki since then and added some cards. Is there any way for me to get my tags back without having to move backwards 5 days and do 800+ cards? I saw some people talk about the reset local changes option but I can’t find that.

Yes you can reset your local changes. To do this:

Go to browse in your Anki → at the top click on ankihub addon tab → press reset all local changes

This will restore everything to what AnkiHub has unless you have specifically protected those fields
