Evernote API creates a new note instead of appending to an existing one

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I use IFTTT to update my notes periodically. So a note would be updated after 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months and 6 months from its creation date.

It turns out that when the note is 1 week or 2 weeks old, IFTTT (Evernote API) will be able to find it and append to it. But the same note won't be found when it's 1 month or older, and a new note with the exact name will be created. 

I suspect the Evernote API is querying a database that only contains the most recent data. But that's just my guess.

It'll be greatly appreciated if someone could take a look.

Thank you so much!

The Evernote API should be operating on the single canonical note database that you are using, which contains all of the notes in your account. It's possible that it's an Evernote problem, but it's also possible that it's an IFTTT problem. Might be worth giving the IFTTT folks a shout as well.
