Hi - welcome to the forums.  You probably know that there are various shortcuts to get you a date & time stamp in the Windows client,  so your record could look like -

- though that doesn't work so well in Android - no time stamp.  (Yet.)


Evernote seem to be improving the editor features,  so you may get some more time-related tools in future;  but short term you will have to look at compromising your method,  or using another app for the meantime.

As a consultant, I have used Evernote in many ways.  It is great at logging, notes, events, actions, etc.

But it is very poor at logging/recording time that involves any type of calculation.


While we never know what new feature Evernote will add, my suggestion is to find a better tool for time keeping, one that you may be able to use with Evernote.


There are many time keeping apps/systems available, and you may very well find one to your liking.

However, I have found that it is hard to beat Excel for simplicity and flexibility.

You could create an Excel Workbook (file) that provides the time keeping, logging, calculations that your require.

Then, add this as an attachment to an Evernote Note, that you would use as a template.

You could then copy this Note template for use on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis according to your needs.

Also, an Evernote Premium account will actually display the Excel file inline in the Note.


As a simpler alternative, If all you want is a nice table to record your time and description without any calculations, then you can create a Word Table, and copy just the table (not the file) into an EN Note, that would be used as a template.
