(Archived) Solved - Saved Searches


Recommended Posts

Trying to start a task-management program (Getting Things Done, for those interested - like so - http://www.thesecretweapon.org/) using Evernote

There are multiple combinations of tags used, and the easiest way to get to the task lists I need is to use saved searches. This works like an absolute dream in the Windows client, and I set out to figure out how to use the saved searches in the Android client. It wasn't obvious to me how to get to them, so I started with Google.

Came up with this article:


The screen shots seem to be from an earlier version, but it gave me confidence that the feature was there. To wit: "Unfortunately, it's not currently possible to create new Saved Searches in Evernote for Android, but it is possible to run existing Saved Searches; just tap the mangnifying [sic] glass:"

So I should be able to run existing saved searches in Android. I assume that means searches I created in the Windows client.

And that's where I hit the wall. It didn't seem to matter what magnifying glass I tapped, I didn't get the same pop-up. I tried entering the text of an existing saved search, thinking it might be clever enough to auto-fill. No dice.

Then it hit me. The saved searches sync! Had I synced since I created these searches?

Apparently not. Seconds later, my saved searches are showing up under the search bar right below the search history entries.

Anyway, I had already started writing this post, and just in case there was some fellow noob out there searching for this topic (or someone who happens to need a great pre-built implementation of GTD using Evernote), I might as well record it for posterity.
