  1. So after having heard about it several times but never finding time to delve further into it, I finally signed up for FileThis (http://filethis.com) and connected several of my accounts to be automatically imported to Evernote. I was blown away by how straightforward the process was. It brought in the backlog of statements from my banks, credit cards, utilities, health insurance, and even Amazon.com orders, and will continue to do so automatically moving forward (by default, in the free tier, once per week.) The one major issue I had was that the creation/modified dates of the notes that were created were the date/time of the import into Evernote, not the dates of the statements themselves. The problem was exacerbated by the fact that many of the statements did not seem to be imported in chronological order (so, for instance, a statement from Dec 2012 appeared near the top of the list, while Mar 2014 was rather toward the bottom) and it seemed to be rather random. Not a huge deal for Premium subscribers, since they're searchable, but an annoyance nonetheless. After noticing that all of the PDF attachments were similarly formatted in their filenames, all including a YYYY-MM-DD format date, I wrote an AppleScript that went through and updated all of the create/modified dates of the FileThis-created notes to mirror the dates in the filenames. In order to make it flexible, I did use regular expressions, so you may need to download and install the Satimage osax extension (http://www.satimage.fr/software/downloads/Satimage392.pkg) in order to enable this capability. After that it's really quite straightforward. Including code here, since attaching AppleScript files is disallowed: tell application "Evernote" set statements to find notes ("tag:FileThis") repeat with statement in statements set att to attachment 1 of statement set fname to filename of att set datestring to find text "[0-9]{4}-[0-9]{2}-[0-9]{2}" in fname with regexp and string result set yyyy to text 1 thru 4 of datestring set mm to text 6 thru 7 of datestring set dd to text 9 thru 10 of datestring set new_date to my date (mm & "/" & dd & "/" & yyyy & " 12:00:00 AM" as string) set creation date of statement to new_date set modification date of statement to new_date end repeatend tellSave into a file (e.g., EN-filethis-fixdate.applescript) and then it can be run from the terminal like so: osascript EN-filethis-fixdate.applescriptThis will update the information directly in your local application, which will then be synced to the cloud and across all of your devices. And your list ordering will be sane again, and your OCD can rest.
  2. I just enabled FileThis to load my statements into my Evernote account because i t was taking up too much of my time each month to log onto my accounts and "manually" file them there appropriately. The question I have is about how the notebook structure that it created is used. The problem is, for example, that for State Farm accounts (it has each of my accounts - homeowners, life, auto - filed separately but by account number which is meaningless to me. If I change the name of the notebook to "Homeowners Ins" will it know where to file the next bill? Or will it create a new notebook with the same old account number structure?
  3. I've been using FileThis and evernote to store my bills electronically. For some reason, FileThis makes multiple notebooks. I recently discontinued Directv and decided to consolidate all the DirecTv bills into one notebook. Since there is no notebook merge, I moved the bill from each notebook to a single notebook. There were some 50 or 60 notes. I then deleted the now empty notebooks. Then evernote started its sync. I watched as the note count in the notebook steadily dropped until now, there only 8 notes left! Are they gone forever?? I checked the trash, no joy there.
