Searching in Evernote Part 2

In the first Searching in Evernote post you learned about Evernote's search syntax.  Using the same methods as in the last post you can also search dates.  You can search for notes created or updated on a specific day, 30 days ago, this month, last year, etc.

The image below shows notes created last week using created:week-1



By using created:day or updated:day where day is replaced by any of the following day terms below will give you the notes you are looking for.

Day Term

Use with created:day or updated:day

Todayday
Yesterdayday-1
30 days agoday-30
This weekweek
Last weekweek-1
This monthmonth
Last monthmonth-1
This yearyear
Last yearyear-1

You can also search for notes by source by using the following:

Reminders are also searchable using the following:

All notes with a reminder in the next 7 daysremindertime:day+7

In the image below you can see all reminders that are due today.


I save searches that I use often in the shortcuts bar.

Saved searches for quick access.

No matter what you put into Evernote you should be able to find it using tags and Evernote's search Syntax.  Evernote is a powerful tool to help keep you organized and on top of things.

Do you use Evernote's powerful searching??

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…

US Marine Casualty Cards

Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division

I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because I don't sleep} requesting more information a…
