Note Fields

In some actions you can setup custom texts including note fields. These are values stored in the note meta-data. You can use the following note fields:

  • [CREATED <time-format>] • Time, the note was created
  • [MODIFIED <time-format>] • Time, the note was last edited
  • [DONE_TIME <time-format>] • Time, the note reminder is set to done
  • [REMINDER_TIME <time-format>] • Time of the added reminder
  • [TITLE <word-number>] • Word from the title (beginning with 1, optional)
  • [AUTHOR] • The full author field
  • [AUTHOR_NAME] • The author field value before the first <, this is normally used to seperate email addresses in mails from and to field.
  • [AUTHOR_EMAIL] • An email address in the author field, this may be empty
  • [NOTE_LINK] • An evernote link to your note
  • [WEB_LINK] • The weblink to your note. With [WEB_LINK SHORT] you can get a short link.

The time related fields require a time format string, which is explained below. E.g. [CREATED %Y-%m-%d] will add the note creation time like 2016-01-13.

Time format

You can use the standard UNIX strptime notation for time format strings. These include the following fields:
