[LON-CAPA-users] Differentiate between tries when a problem is reset?

HI All,

I've created a problem where viewing previous tries the normal way is not very meaningful to the students and so am referencing their attempts and giving them a series of links they can click on to display a visualization of their previous attempts. This all works fine. However, in the case where for whatever reason the instructor RESETS the student's access to the problem so that they can start over, Lon-Capa maintains the record of their attempts from before the reset and continues to reference those.  I'm wondering, therefore, if there is some way in the event of an access reset to differentiate between the new attempts vs. the old (pre-reset) attempts.  user.resource.resource.<partid>.tries resets so that the number of tries is again 0, 1, 2, etc.  but user.resource.1:resource.<partid>.<responseid>.submission continues to keep track of ALL submissions.  I'm sure I'm missing something simple. Thanks for your help!
