  1. Excellent Dipper, that's what I needed. And it was a useful intro to Zapier too; I hadn't heard of it until now. For the record, in case anyone else looks at this thread for an answer, when creating the Zap, I ended up placing the "Message URL" field into the "Source URL" box, rather than into the "Content" box as you'd suggested. The reason is that if the "Message URL" field is placed in the "Content" box, it ends up in Evernote only as plain text -- i.e. it's not clickable. By contrast, placing the "Message URL" field into the "Source URL" box creates a clickable ink in the Evernote Note. It places it just above the Note body, on the same line as, and just to the right of, the "Created" and "Updated" fields. Thanks again.
  2. Thanks Dipper, but that does only the first of the two things -- i.e. it only forwards the messages to EN. My question was about how to do both that *and* have the resulting EN note contain a link back to Gmail -- i.e. the way it appears if instead of forwarding the Gmail message, I use the Web Clipper to send it to EN.
  3. I know of two ways to pass a Gmail message to Evernote: Forward the Gmail message to my personal Evernote email address. A feature of this approach is that it can be done automatically, using Gmail filters. Use the web clipper while in Gmail itself. A feature of this approach is that the resulting Evernote note will contain an "Open conversation in Gmail" link to take me back to the message in Gmail.Is there a way to achieve both features? In other words, is there a way to have Gmail messages automatically passed to Evernote but also have the resulting EN note contain that "Open conversation in Gmail" link? thx. P.S. I doubt it matters, but I'm using EN on a Mac, and the browser is Safari.
  4. Thanks Entropy, that's very useful. (I hope you're still around; I know you wrote this in 2013). But Can you clarify something? It seems that tags -- Now, Next, Later, Pending, and Fixed Date (the titles of which you subsequently prepend with yyyy.mm.dd) -- and tag-based searching is at the heart of your approach. For example, in step 4 you say: Even when an item is completed, you say: The overall impression is that you have only two notebooks -- Incoming and Notes. Is that true? thx!
  5. @EdH, Which OS are you on -- Windows or OS X (Mac)? I tried entering each of the following into a cell in Excel on my Mac: evernote:///bla... =HYPERLINK("evernote://bla...","foo") (where "bla..." is obviously the rest of the actual Evernote link) but neither work. The first just sits there as an unclickable string. The second displays as "foo", as a clickable hyperlink, but when I click on it I get a "Cannot open the specified file" error.
  6. Hmm, looks like they've fixed it. That was fast! Well done developers.
  7. Re-testing as I'd done originally. The first should be fine, the second should fail: ### Colon plus one slash (should pass) :/ foo bar wibble #### ### Colon plus two slashes (should fail) :// foo bar wibble ####
  8. Wait -- so you're saying you got the bug even with a space between the colon and the slash-slash? ### no space (should get dropped) evernote:// #### ### now a space -- thought I'd already tested this and it was OK evernote: // #### Huh? The first one worked too. Have they fixed it already??
  9. Wait -- so you're saying you got the bug even with a space between the colon and the slash-slash? ### no space (should get dropped) evernote:// #### ### now a space -- thought I'd already tested this and it was OK evernote: // ####
  10. Closing in. ### Unquoted colon-plus-two-slashes (which we now know is broken) #### ### Quoted colon-plus-two-slashes #### And then repeat those but with a space between the colon and slashes ### Unquoted : // #### ### Quoted ": //" ####
  11. Maybe the colon's needed too: ### Colon plus one slash :/ foo bar wibble #### ### Two #### ### And three#### ### Two but with a space:/ / foo bar wibble####
  12. Looks like it might be two or more consecutive forward-slashes ### Just one slash / foo bar wibble #### ### Two // foo bar wibble #### ### And three/// foo bar wibble#### ### Two but with a space/ / foo bar wibble####
  13. I'm going to try some other ###-sandwiched lines to see if I can isolate the problem: ### just a quoted lowercase name of this product "evernote" #### ### Now add the colon "evernote:" #### ### Now the first forward slash "evernote:/" #### ### The second #### ### And the third #### ### Mis-spell the name of the product, removing the e between the v and the r #### ### Just the symbols, dropping the word but still in quotes#### ### Drop the quotes, still just the symbols#### ### Finally the whole strong, but not quote#### And, post...
