(Archived) Suggestion: Date Stamping

Recommended Posts

In all (any) version of Evernote: I would like to see the ability to add the current date (and/or time) using a short-cut or edit bar selection. Ideally, the date format would be user definable. This would allow a note to be used for journaling, capturing points during phone conversations, etc. (record time or date sensitive points). A further extension of this might be to have a selectable date "field" provided adjacent to a todo box "todo on or before".

A still further alternative (iPad and iPhone) would be to integrate with the TextExpander app.

I agree. Timestamping should be a standard feature.

As a workaround, I use a small AutoHotKey (http://www.autohotkey.com/) script that does the trick. I wrote this for another software I use that does not have any timestamping but since it's system wide, I found myself using it in EN. :)

IfWinActive ahk_class ConsoleWindowClass
SendInput {Raw}%clipboard%

;~ $F2::
FormatTime, xx,, yyyyMMdd HHmm
SendInput, %xx% %A_UserName%:{Space}

The output will be

My 2 cents...
