Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4 (Alfred 4)

Recommended Posts

I'll make some tests ASAP and I'll let you know.

Just make sure to use Evernote from evernote.com

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?

Hi Carlos,

 

Great work and very usable workflow. Quick newbie syntax question that I can't seem to figure out.  How do I type a new note directly into alfred AND have a separate title for the note. It seems everything I try duplicates the note in the title of the note. That makes for really long titles.  What am I missing?

 

Thanks in advance!

Thank you Ed.

 

Right now the note content will also be the note title.

 

I’m still thinking about an improved way to type note directly from Alfred window. One way would be to create a new line sign (e.g. /nf) this way the workflow would take the first line as the title and format properly into Evernote. Example:

 

enn Shopping List /nf Milk /nf Eggs /nf Apples

 

The above command would appear in Evernote this way:

 

Note Title:

Shopping List

Note Content:

Milk

Eggs

Apples

 

The advantage of this approach is not only a possible custom title but also create multiple lines notes.

 

What do you think? Too complicate or it would be nice to have such alternative?

I use this workflow every day, multiple times a day. It has revolutionized the way I use Evernote. Thank you.

 

I have one feature request: partial match of at least ent, maybe ens if it makes sense. For example, if I am looking for the note called "Media Times", "ent me" returns a blank list. I have to type all the way to "ent media" before I get results.

 

Thanks again.

Thanks for the quick reply!  I think that is a great idea. Is it possible to use a shorter "delimiter" for a new line? Typing one character instead of three might be quicker. Something like:

 

enn Shopping List | Milk | Eggs | Apples @Notebook #Tag1 #Tag2 !Reminder

 

Would something like that work?

You have two options:

 

1) type a wildcard e.g. ent me*

 

Or set the workflow to use the wildcard by default. Show Alfred and type the keyword enpref to run the workflow preferences then in step 2 select Automatic:

Maybe then a two characters delimiter to the users can use “|” if need it. Here’s something that is fast to type:

 

enn @Notebook #Tag1 #Tag2 !Reminder : Shopping List /n Milk /n Eggs

 

The new approach will follow the main Syntax only adding a way to enter a return character.

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 worked perfectly!  Please include it going forward.  I'm sorry I didn't see your post until now.  You are super responsive, it turns out (and I failed to set up notifications for this thread)!

 

I note in a download link you put out for someone later in this thread that it doesn't include the above allowance for tags like #@Work, so hopefully it's not a big deal to get what you linked to me above in the permanent branch.

I’m finishing a new version that should be ready next week. It will include tags and notebooks starting with @ or #. :)

I think that would work and would be very usable! 

 

Great stuff! Thank you!

Please, make sure you are using Alfred 2.3 (262) and Evernote from evernote.com.

 

This Alfred version is required and it is available as a pre-release (not an update).

 

Here is a link to the previous version if you need it: 8.0 final.

 

Anyway, I’ll also make some tests to see if I can reproduce the error.

Hi,

 

I'm using the latest V2.3 (262) version of Alfred and V5.5.1 (402629 App Store) of Evernote.

Do you think the problem is caused by my Evernote version from App Store ?

 

 

Thanks

OK. I’ve found an issue when using the workflow for the very first time.

 

Download the new version here.

 

Some workflow features may not work in Evernote from the Mac App Store. The recommendation is to download Evernote from evernote.com.

 

Thank you for your feedback.

Evernote's web site brings me back to the app store.

 

Where's the alfred pre-release? 

 

:)

Evernote download:

 

Go to evernote.com/evernote and instead of clicking the big green button click the little white arrow then select Mac OS X.

Alfred pre-release:

Go to Alfred Preferences then Update (at top right) then below where it says Automatically check for select pre-releases. The version required by the latest Evernote workflow version should be there.

Hi, 

awesome workflow, I have been using it quite a bit. 

 

Maybe it's just me, but after this update (updated alfred, got evernote from the website, even deleted and reinstalled the workflow)

I don't get the autocomplete when typing 

enn @

 

thanks =)
