Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4 (Alfred 4)

Recommended Posts

Hi, this is the first workflow I imported so I am trying to understand how I can use it.

I am not able to figure out how I type the title of a note and then add something else to the body. Thank you.

 

 

To type a note within Alfred:

 

1. Bring Alfred

2. type the keyword enn

3. type your note (in this case note title and content will be the same)

4. highlight “Type a Note” and hit return key

 

Check the workflow Help (keyword en?) for more details.

 

this workflows' so smart and elegant that it makes me want to study some applescript and make my mac work for me XD

 

Thank you! AppleScript is not that hard. You can find a lot of examples making things easier. For me it’s kind of a hobby. :)

Hi there - I love this workflow.  Thanks so much for putting this out there.

 

I use the Getting Things Done workflow suggested by thesecretweapon.com, and in this I use a number of tags that start with @, such as @Home, @Work, and @Town.  Is there any way to escape the @ symbol so it can be used in a tag?

 

Here's what I used to do when adding a task, which worked well:

enn Some Task#1-Now,@Home#GTD

 

Here's what I tried that doesn't seem to work now:

enn Some Task @GTD #1-Now #@Home

 

When I try this, it tells me "You can only create a note in one notebook at a time"

I’ll see what I can do about it.

It seems this workflow can not recognize the tag start with "#" symbol. i.e. "#To Buy"

 

When I want to create a note with tag "#To buy", it's not workable.

 

Is there any chance to update or It should other solution I don't know? ^_^

Here is a new version (still a beta one) that starts to add support for a tag like #ToBuy or a tag like @Home as well as notebooks names that start with a hash or an at sign.

 

Download Version 8.1 Beta Now

 

Please, make some tests and let me know. Thank you.

This is an EXCELLENT workflow, basically the reason I purchased the Alfred Powerpack! 

 

That aside I have noticed a few things with the reminders features - I am attempting to combine alfred+evernote+this workflow to become my new task management suite. My observation is that when I use the "enr" command it only shows reminders that have an assigned due date. The other observation I have noticed with evernote is when I create a reminder through enn @Reminders !Tomorrow :Do Good, the resulting note "Do Good" has a due date but the little clock is not highlighted in Evernote and Evernote does not register the note as a reminder. 

 

I also created a trigger key that feeds "enn @Reminders !" into Alfred so I can start creating my reminder right away. Is there any way to create a reminder without a due date? i.e. enn @Reminders !none? 

 

Thank you again for this fabulous piece of software!

The keyword enr lists due and overdue reminders. Evernote doesn’t have an AppleScript command to handle reminders without a due date.

 

About the Evernote little clock: while making the workflow I have noticed that. It seems more an Evernote bug because the reminder is set but Evernote is not updating its interface.

 

Reminder without due date: again, Evernote does not have an AppleScript command to handle reminders without a due date. Maybe you could create a feed with a past date.

 

Anyway, let’s hope the next Evernote version fix some issues and improve its AppleScript commands.

FYI: the reminders issue was reported to Evernote developers.

Hi There -

 

I noticed in that using wildcard character * no longer works for ENT. For example ENT *note keyword* used to return any note that had "note keyword" in it's title. Wonder if this is due to the latest Evernote Beta version for Mac 5.5.1 Beta 3?

Please, run the keyword enpref and make sure Search Wildcard is set to Manual.

 

PS: I’m not using Evernote beta.

Thank Carlos - still not working, but I switched to automatic and that is fine for me. 

 

Been using this workflow since you built it. Great work. Thanks

I made some tests and it seems OK. However, later this week I’ll make even more tests to see if I find something wrong.

 

Thank you for your feedback.

Hello Carlos! Answering a suggestion from me, you have reversed the results for ens keyword to show recent notes at the top of the list:

Would be possible to do the same for enu keyword?

Next week I'll investigate why enu is not working as expected. Thank you.

This workflow has become so indispensable for me I would gladly have paid for Alfred if it was the only thing I could have done with it. My only vexation is that I haven't quite managed to understand how to append the selected text to an existing text file WITHOUT appending the current date. I keep various References list for language learning and other disciplines I really don't care about the date I came across this or that piece of information information so long as I have an uncluttered list in a single file. Which means I afterwards have to go back and delete all the appended dates. Am I being particularly daft or is there really no way to not include the date in the first place? Forgive the fussiness, but it really is my only inconvenience. Thank you for the workflow, it is an absolute gem.

I’ll add a way to exclude the date. I hope to finish the update this week. I’ll let you know. Thank you for your feedback.

I’ve made a tweak. The problem is Evernote does not return search results in a consistent order. It seems that it is using an internal Evernote order.

Note that if you use the keyword enn you always had the option to append a note with current date (option key) or without a date (command key).

 

When using search keywords such as ens or  ent, the append was always without current date. However now you can set if you want or not a date when appending from a search keyword by running the enpref keyword.

Argh, imbecile that I am I hadn't even noticed. That's what I get for not paying attention.

But thank you for having updated it nonetheless - as far as I'm concerned, this workflow has reached perfection.

Here is also 5.5.1. How can I help you to debug it?

 

I made more tests.

 

Here Evernote display some newer notes first (but not all of them) and then I get mixed results.

 

Only keyword enrec is displaying properly (most recent to least recent) but it does because the workflow parses the note updated date within current week.

 

I’ll create an Evernote developer ticket about this. I does a lot of sense to get results from Evernote in a chronological order instead Evernote internal order (which I assume it is happening).

Working great for synchronized notebooks but seems to not pickup local notebooks from the native evernote mac app.  Anybody have info on using this workflow with local notebooks?
