Last modification time lost when moving notes


Recommended Posts

Today I use the web client to organize (move) all my notes into different notebooks. When I finished, I found that the modification time of all my notes become today.

This is unacceptable for me. I can't find my notes by timeline any more. For example, I can't list all my travel plans in 2017.

I tried moving notes on my Android phone, and the modification time doesn't change at all. I think this is a bug of the web client.

How can I recover all the modification time of my notes? Is there a way, such as, rollback all my notes to yesterday?

Most of the more experienced users around here have local backups for situations like this,  though backing up is not an option on either web or mobile accounts as yet - unless you use a third party online backup. Moving a note from one notebook to another kills its history too (you've changed the note UI),  so I don't think there's a 'roll back' situation remaining - but don't give up hope yet.  You're a subscriber,  and it's mainly just us users supporting the forums here,  so you really should contact Support on this.  If nothing  else it will draw their attention to a potential design flaw that I hadn't thought of until now either.

You still have Created Date

You may want to use a different strategy for storing Subject Date
- For example, I prefix the title with the date 
- There is an actual Subject Date field, but I find it difficult to access
