(Archived) Script Creates Evernote Note & Calendar Reminder with Link



I’ve come up with an Applescript that will save a document to Evernote and also create a Calendar event as a reminder to follow-up in seven days.  The Calendar entry also contains a link to the note.  If you use Evernote on an iOS device, the link will open Evernote and the note.


The script was created for use with Hazel, but could be modified to function as a folder action.


In order to use the Applescript as is, you need to create the following:


A folder named “Save PDF to Inquiries” in ~/Library/PDF Services/


A Calendar called “To Do” in the Calendar application.  The event created by the Applescript will be an all day event.  I have the default alarm for all day events set at 9:00am in Calendar preferences.


Create a notebook in Evernote called "Inquiries"


In the print dialog, select "Save PDF to Inquiries" from the PDF drop down menu to start the process.


I’m not a coder, so what this Applescript achieves could likely have been done in a much more efficient manner.  Please feel free to make suggestions.

end tell
