android HOWTO: Include time stamps?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to include a time stamp within a note using the Android client?

I know each new note has its own 'created' or 'modified' time stamp, but what I need is something like the time stamp you get when you press Ctrl + semicolon in Evernote for Windows. Because I have some notes that have to be updated regularly on-the-go and need to insert the time at each update.

This was requested and discussed last year:

Yes, please Evernote - this would be so useful for notes that you use to keep track of events, conversations, ongoing support calls etc.

Thanks, Ubaid.

Yes, this is a major feature missing in the android app. Hope they'll add the functionality soon.

First -- add my vote to including time stamping to EN Android.

Second -- THANK YOU! It was in this thread that I discovered "Ctrl + semicolon in Evernote for Windows" inserted a time/date stamp. Very Neat!

Yes, please add this function. I would find it very useful as I take field notes and have to do this manually all the time. BTW, I only need a date string not the time (but putting date & time would be better than nothing as time could be easily backspaced/delete the un-needed portion). Ideally the user could configure the default string to their liking.

+1 on this request. We really need a date/time stamp icon, shortcut, or something to keep track of on going conversations or events.

With Time Share for Android you can get a time stamp into the clipboard. In the next step you paste the time stamp into any textfield. After configuring Time Share, this function will be available from the statusbar! This is an easy way to get a timestamp into any of your applications where a time stamp is needed! There is also a trial version of Time Share.

Agreed, that would be a great feature!

 

It pains me that my almost prehistoric first PDA (a HP 100LX) already had this feature (a slightly more meorable Ctrl-D), but somehow useful features seems to get lost in time in our digital society. Surely HP didn't patent it...

You can use Tasker to put the day, date, and/or time in the clipboard when Evernote is opened, then paste it in. Using an app like Clipper would allow you to keep anything else you'd hoped to paste into a note.

Using tasker...

Create new system task and give it name like "timestamper"

choose Set Clipboard

in the text field put:

%DATE - %TIME

Create a profile - Application - and select evernote in app selection.

select the "timestamper" task.

Exit.

go to evernote and paste.

Thanks a bunch. Your suggestion led me to buying and installing Time Share. The app takes care of this deficiency (the lack of a time stamp for everynote entries on android).
