Tags — automatically assigning tag(s) to a new note. Possible?

Recommended Posts

I have decided to assign a year tag to new notes e.g 2016. Is it possible to setup en so that this tag is automatically assigned to new notes? I have taken a look at preferences, but nothing I could see.

Evernote does not have a "default tag"

As a workaround, you could apply the tag afterwards to a group of notes

Not sure the point of assigning tag 2016
New notes are automatically assigned creation date, for example  20160801
- You can search on this field,  
   for example     search     created:20160101 -created:20170101
- You can add this search to your shortcuts and call it     2016
see  Evernote Search Grammar   for further details on search terms

Hey Traveller1,

 

you should have a look at Filterize it is a tool that we develop for full EVERNOTE process automations. 

Let me know if you need help

Hi, 

 

Check out IFTTT. It's free and does what you want. Just create a recipe 'if note is created' then 'insert date'. 

 

Cheers

in ifttt, I see the "if note is created" part, but I don't see the "insert date" action

Sorry for the late reply. I think IFTTT has changed.

There is an ingredient "{{check time}}". That does the trick, however, you'll get something like "November 18, 2016 at 12:51 AM". There is also "created date"

You could simply use "2016" in the "Tag" field. You'd have to change that in 2017 though.
