android Date and time stamp(s)

Recommended Posts

Would be nice to have user originated date and time stamps, or at least a single date+time stamp, as in the Windows version.

I would like the ability to add date/time stamps in my notes by just clicking a button or choosing a menu option rather than typing it in myself. I frequently append information to the same note and would like to add when I have made the update to the note.

+10 I NEED this feature. Ok, not need, but it would make using evernote on my tablet MUCH easier on my tablet.

+1 for this feature request as well. As a new user of EN I want to be able to continue using labeling conventions I have come to use on other documents/files.

Possible example:

A button in the icon bar of a new note that when tapped would bring up a small window with the option of picking one of the following choices:

Date & Time (01/01/2011 : 1345)

Date (2011/01/01)

Time (05:00 PM)

The format/layout of this data would be selected in the settings menu which would offer the choice of the various date and time entry formats used worldwide.

If I may also add: I use EN extensively for maintaining my work logs for both In-House and Out-House ( or should I say, In-Field...) time sensitive jobs. I create a note at Start of Job and then throw in all manner of entry types as the job progresses. A final entry made at the End of Job or End of Job Session marks the End Time On Job.

Most jobs are completed in one day but, if said job is stopped or completed when I'm in the Out-House or In-Field and using my Galaxy Note (brag, brag) and not a PC, I have to jump through flaming hoops to discover Start Time and End Time. Yes; I'm lazy but, I'm thinking my tech tools should be handling all that extraneous stuff while I turn the nuts, bolts and screws and push those buttons...

Oh; If a client wants to know what I did to justify the time they pay me for... Guess what I give them access to!

EverNote.... I Love You but, there's room to love you more in Android. Please give us Date AND Time Stamps just like you do in Windows.............

Love ,

I work in a call center and start a new note for each shift. Then I make comments on each call in the one big note. I can time stamp each call when I use evernote in windows, but I'd like to switch to my tablet, and there's no way to timestamp in android that I can find. No shift-alt-d in the android version of evernote. When can we expect some way to timestamp in android? Also, as long as you might do a button for android, it would be nice if there were a button for this in the windows version too. Old fingers find a three key chord kind of challenging. Thanks.

Yeah. I use timestamp a lot as well.

FYI: Ctrl+; is the equivalent of Alt+Shift+D on the Windows client.

Might be a little easier to use.

How about keyboard shortcuts in general? When are we going to see keyboard shortcuts for bold,italics, underline and saving (ctrl s)? +1 for time stamps, I use this on my windows pc as well.

Oh yes please - I am with Technut, that sounds like a good implementation, I at times* could use either date OR time OR both.

* Very frequently

I have just switched last week to a Samsung Galaxy Note, its my first Android phone after two years with the iphone and I am loving Evernote on that gorgous huge screen (although search appears broken on the current release).

I would also love to be able to time stamp dates/times within notes via a button. I am involved in a hugely complex multi-channel customer contact strategy project and have hundreds of notes of meetings and technical specifications. It would save loads of time building up action logs stored in each note.

Ditto! Timestamps on Antroid (and iOS) is more or less my #1 wish. I use EN on my Galaxy Nexus to capture project details into a NOTES note when I'm out in the field, and it's distracting to poke in the date while I'm trying to pay attention plus remember exactly what I need to write (a better brain would solve this, but then I wouldn't need EN in the first place).

I really like the suggestion that the Timestamp button offer buttons to select Date, Time, or Both.

+1 here as well. I create service and activity reports that need this feature.

Bu the way (while I'm dreaming), instead of a timestamp button, I could also be happy with text shortcuts, like "qd" for Date, "qt" for Time. and "qdt" for Date + Time. I like the "q" prefix because it is pretty much never followed by anything by a "u". Then we could also define our own personal text shortcuts (ala, Blackberry).

+1 for this feature request.

I've been using CopiPe to produce the timestamps and paste them in to evernote and whilst this works, it is very clunky.

Judging by the feedback here, I am not the only one who really needs this feature.

+1 for this and keyboard shortcuts in general, since Android is starting to appear on devices that look like netbooks.

+1. Used this quite a bit on NoteEverything and miss it dearly in Evernote.

Thanks,

Please add my vote for this feature. Like many others, I insert timestamps for every single entry in my client contact notes, and while I can "automate" that in Windows (Autohotkey), I'm constantly having to do it by hand on my mobile devices. I'd have to vote this as the feature I most anxiously await in EN!!

I quite often run a log on notes. With android there is currently nothing on the menu button when editing. I would be happy to see something there or a new Icon maybe replacing one of the less used insert options like Italics.

I use the following format in windows 2012-08-20 08:15 AM.

Bump. Curious that Evernote does not seem to give something so many clients want/need any attention...

(I am hoping the squeaky wheel gets the grease... B) )

I also ran into this issue, I wanted to add timestamps to my notes. I developed an app that can share date and time to any application, I called it 'Time Share'. :)

You can set up Time Share so that when you tap one of the launcher icons, a new note will be created in Evernote with a time stamp. You can also set up Time Share so that when you tap the copy launch icon actual time will be copied to clipboard and Evernote will start up. Follow my links for more info.

You can test if this is something for you by downloading the trial app:

The sharp version without delay:

+1, bump, Like, Whatever.

Need this on Android to document Daily Record for legality puposes.

Please add this

 

Window users don't forget that the ctrl; (ctrl+semicolon) gives you a stamp.

I know it's been 3 years from the first post, but for me is still one of the most needed additions for this wonderful piece of software. Thank you very much!

Cross-platform date-time stamp seems essential to me. I can see this will be one of my biggest problems using and sharing Evernote notebooks. Date-time stamps with per-notebook date-time formatting would prevent the headaches I'm sure to have trying to query for notes with certain dates in them. Odds are there will be no consistency in how others format dates typed in manually.

Somehow really frustrating that such a simple thing like a date and time stamp on Android can't be implemented after 3 years of user requests.

Evernote guys heee wake up!

Agreed. The workaround is to include such data in the note body and/or title. Not ideal, but it's all we have for now.
