Use Evernote Saved Search to create Custom List Like Remember The Milk
Recently, I realize that Evernote, my main note taking application was able to do that as well.
What you can do is
- Do an advanced search by trying to find specific text in title, in specific tags, in specific notebook, with to do (checkboxes) at a certain longitude and latitude. (for more info on how specific or flexible you can search, refer to this guide)
- Review the search result to see if it is showing what you want and save the search.
- When reviewing at your iPad, iPhone, Android Device or Desktop, Click on these saved search list to review them.
Evernote highlights a few saved search ideas:
- created:[datetime] – Search for notes by date of creation using the format YYYYMMDD. You can also search by time period (for example, day-30 will pull up all notes created in the last 30 days).
- intitle:”name” – Search within the title of the note (ie: intitle:”restaurant” will pull up a note titled “French restaurant”).
- resource:image/* – Search only for notes that contain images.
You can always use the global “find in Evernote” desktop hotkey. On Mac, the default hotkey isCtrl+Cmd+F. On Windows, the default hotkey is Win+Shift+F .
