What is the URL in the Note Info Window used for?

What is the URL — in the screenshot below, it's blank and says Set a URL..— used for? I can get the internal URL to the note by using the shortcut Ctrl+ALT+L. So what's this? Maybe a link to a web page the note may be refering to?

Yes, can be used for such a use case, for example. If you set a URL it will be displayed in the note on top next to the task counter.

A note created, for example, by the web clipper will have the URL field filled with the source of the clip.

You can also search directly for the contents of this field using an undocumented piece of advanced search syntax - sourceurl: So to find all the notes that I have clipped from the bbc website:


Unfortunately you do need to put in the https:// at the beginning as, in EN, wild card characters do not work at the beginning of a string. The asterix at the end finds all urls that begin with https://www.bbc.co.uk
