Just a post to bemoan the loss, as a result of the recent upgrade, to display notes sorted by title in snippet view. Before the upgrade, this was possible - and the way I organised and easily flicked through my upcoming meetings. By having a note for each meeting and starting the note title with the date in reverse order - 2014-09-19 - and adding a graphic to identify the type of meeting (a cartoon of a lecturer for seminars, for instance), I was able to access a chronological list of meetings notes but easily scroll to the one I was looking for. Now that is no more. I have asked for it to be re-introduced, and now wait hopefully. - Justin
I see that the "Due Date" field is coming "soon". Which makes me hope that this new date field also can be used as a general way to reflect the date of note content. Including notes with "old" content. I use Evernote primarily as an archive for all my old scanned documents. I'm also a hobby genealogist and use Evernote to store census images, parish records and other life event documents which usually have a clear date or timestamp connected to them. Evernote has been awesome for these purposes, and I've just passed 5000 mostly "historical" notes. But the more I put in the more I miss a good way to add the date of the content. I tried to change the created date, but quickly realized the flaw in that strategy. I've since prepended the note titles with a yyyymmdd format for sort purposes. But this feels more and more like an ugly hack. So I see due date is coming and I'm thinking that it is really the same as I am asking for: a way to reflect the content of the note. Whether it's the date of old letters, receipts, tickets, genealogy stuff or future events and tasks. Is this a correct interpretation of this new date field? And if so, wouldn't it be a good idea to call the new date field "Subject Date" instead of "Due Date"? To better reflect the general purpose of both future and past dates. I don't use Evernote for tasks, I use Remember the Milk for that. But I recognize those who do, and see the need for a way to reflect due dates. So since it is semantically the same as my use of "origin date"/"source date", I would think it's a good thing to combine it into one date field that feels natural for both parties. Just a thought.
