Home Dashboard Ideas

Recommended Posts

I saw many great ideas from the contest. I couldn't participate as it was too late but it inspired me to do my own dashboard.

OceanFact is a science communication project in marine biology that I started way before I heard about EN. Evernote changed everything!
I am posting on instagram each a small fact about marine organisms and I used to do that in google doc. It would quickly pile up and become impossible to search for anything. On top of becoming sluggish.

I can now write and have everything in one place, classified and all to reuse content later.

 

The post-it are pictures with an internal link or a hyperlink to specific notes. They are inserted inside a table for a nice display. I made those postit notes with inkscape.

I got inspired by Enrico Nahler and how he uses Filterize and Table of Contents.

Behind each postit, there is a note that I feed with Filterize and some tags.

When I add the tag "Published" to a note, it is removed from that list and goes to a specific note that collects all the ideas that have been completed, again with Filterize.

This one is still a work in progress. I need to add all the categories and internal links to easily go back and forth between the notes.

I would like to see your dashboards to get more inspirations.

Especially if you have a calendar dahsboard or something you can make dynamical with dates.

Best,

Nice job, and I like the ToC automation via Filterize

>>Especially if you have a calendar dashboard or something you can make dynamical with dates.

Can you give some examples?   

My use case is a daily journal note which includes a list of tasks due that day.  
It's similar to the Filterize ToC, but generated each morning with an applescript on my Mac842973851_ScreenShot2020-01-28at9_03_31AM.png.3a965b7b99f1bd64e1bdc8cbcf357dc2.png

I also use a gantt timeline view of my task list
In this case, I take the note list to a spreadsheet; which includes note links back to Evernote

Well, I don't have implemented examples (as you are the Apple Script Pro here and I am not yet :D), but for instance a table calendar which cells would get filled with note links depending on the reminder dates and/or tags.

Should be possible with Regular Expression I guess:

  1. Identify the date from the note (tag or reminder date)
  2.  Copy the internal link
  3. Go to the calendar note
  4. Find the month, then the day
  5. Jump to the next cell
  6. Paste the note link

To identify the correct cell, they're could be a (merge) field with the date {yyyy-mm-dd} or something similar.

Would be nice to have dynamic template with dynamical fields, for instance start date and end dates to make a calendar template.

You could put "{Start Date: 01/11/2020}", "{End Date: 05/12/2020}, {Monday:Friday}" in an empty note, apply a template to it that would replace the content and would make a calendar out of it going from 01/11 to 05/12 of 2020, only showing Mondays till Fridays.
Something like this.

I put that as a nice personal AppleScript learning project. :)

 

About the Gant Chart, you put a picture of the spreasheet inside Evernote or you have a table for the Gantt chart inside Evernote?
I am interested in a Gantt chart :D
Dare to share the script?

Best,

I've done some minor work, creating a table for data
The attached is generated by my email>evernote script

It's simply generating the required html code as per the sample
and creating a note with the script
     tell application "Evernote"
           
activate
           
set theNewNote to create note with html (theNote)718315847_ScreenShot2020-01-29at7_30_17AM.png.c4373b2f78bfe4c5fdba180ddf00112d.png

 

However, this does not support actions like "jump to the next cell"
- which is why I switched to a spreadsheet to display the information
I also insert note links into my calendar app (by date)

The gantt timeline view of my tasks is a spreadsheet.
It's doable, but I didn't attempt to create a table inside Evernote

My dashboard note contains a link to the spreadsheet (standard for dashboards)
I also include a screenshot - it avoids having to leap back and forth all day and serves as an archive

Here's the code for  extracting Evernote note data

 

After getting the data, it is inserted into the spreadsheet with spreadsheet code
The sample shows setting up the spreadsheet each day with the dates headers.  
- it shows the "jump to the net cell"190395228_ScreenShot2020-01-29at7_46_37AM.png.27d88214bfab54749eddca7314122446.png
