windows (Archived) Keeping track of dates

Recommended Posts

I'm an absolute newbie to Evernote, and hope that someone can help me with some suggestions.

 

I have one year's worth of photographic tips that are sent to annual subscribers.  I'm understand to create a note for each tip, and tag it according to the content.  However, I would like to keep track of when each tip was sent.

 

For example, I would like to look at a note and see that it was sent on July 2, 2012, and on July 17, 2013.  Or I'd like to do a search to see which notes have not been repeated in 2013.  Or see which tips on shutter speed (tagged) has been sent in 2012 but not in 2013.

 

I'm not sure whether to use tags to accomplish this, or Note Titles, or separate notebooks, or a combination of them all.  I cannot think that creating 365 date tags for each year is the only solution!

 

All suggestions would be welcomed.

From what you say above, here's what I would initially do.  (The procedure may evolve over time to better suit my needs.)

 

"For example, I would like to look at a note and see that it was sent on July 2, 2012, and on July 17, 2013."

I'd set up each tip as a single note.  When it's sent out, I'd simply add the sent dates at the end of the note in YYYYMMDD format.  This allows you to look at each note (tip) & find out the dates it was sent out.

"Or I'd like to do a search to see which notes have not been repeated in 2013."

Search on all your tips but add -2013* to the search parameters.  This finds all notes/tips that do not have a date beginning with 2013 in them.

 

"Or see which tips on shutter speed (tagged) has been sent in 2012 but not in 2013"

Search on all your tips but add:

 

2012* -2013*

 

To the search parameters.  This finds all notes/tips with a date beginning with 2012 but do not have dates beginning with 2013.

 

If you were to use the created date of the note, you would not be able to enter multiple dates when the tip was sent.
