How to search for all scanned business cards.

Recommended Posts

In Evernote (I'm using the Mac version), is there special syntax for searching for all business cards? Obviously I can search for "intitle:"business card"", but, in case I've edited the title of some business cards to not have "business card" in them, is there search grammar I can use to retrieve all notes that were created with Evernote's business-card scanner?

 

Thanks for the help!

It may help to narrow your search if you look up Evernote's resource search syntax - that will help you find PDF,  JPG or PNG attachments (amongst other things).  Look for the file type used by the business card feature.

Tested this out and was able to find all scanned Business Cards by creating a custom search "from mobile" and "containing an attachment" - though this could come up with extra stuff that isn't just business cards.

 

Hope this helps :)

Thanks to everyone for the very useful suggestions. Should get me most of the way there. Am surprised, though, that there's not a dedicated note type to search by, since Evernote clearly treats business cards (in terms of formatting) very differently than every other type of card.

There is a dedicated content type for business cards. You can search for 

contentClass:evernote.contact*

to find all your business cards.
