Tuskify is an extremely powerful tool and can be used in many ways to help you automate your Evernote notes.
Below you will find several examples of how you could create a variety of recipes to keep your notes organized, automatically:
Evernote reminders are good, but what if you want to be reminded of a note every week, or every 10 days? Tuskify can do this for you...
7days to note
This recipe will find any notes whose reminders are overdue (in the past) and automatically change the reminder to
7 days from today.
Keep track of who created each note by automatically tagging the note with its Author.
This recipe will find any notes whose author is set to
David Jones and automatically tag them with
Do you use Evernote for To Do lists? Tuskify can automatically add a reminder to notes that have incomplete To Do checkboxes.
2days to note
This recipe will add a reminder for
2 days to any notes that have incomplete ToDo checkboxes.
Once all ToDo checkboxes have been ticked, make Tuskify set the reminder to complete.
This recipe will set the reminder to complete on any notes that have completed ToDo checkboxes (
todo:true) but do not have incomplete ToDO checkboxes (
This second part of the GTD recipes will look for notes with a reminder due today and tag them.
This recipe will look for notes that have a reminder due
today. These notes will have the tag
Now added to them and the tag
GTD can be implemented in many different ways, this is just one. This recipe will automatically add and remove the appropriate tags so you can easily see what to work on Now and what to work on Next!
Tuskify can organize your notes by where they were created. For example, you could automatically tag any notes that were created at Apple's WWDC 2016 event:
latitude:37 -latitude:38 longitude:-123 -longitude:-122
WWDC 2016to note
This recipe allows you to track the notes for a specific location. Notes that have latitude between
37 and 38 and a longitude between
-122 and -123 will have the tag
WWDC 2016 added to them.
Apple's WWDC 2016 event was held at Moscone West in San Francisco CA, which has a latitude of 37.783197 and a longitude of -122.403445. By specifying the latitude and longitude ranges above, Tuskify will look for any notes that have these co-ordinates and apply the tag to them so you can easily find the notes you took at the event!
The search in Evernote is powerful, but it only allows you to search where ALL conditions are true (an AND search e.g. a=b AND c=d).
Tuskify opens this up by allowing you to search where ANY conditions are true (an OR search e.g. a=b OR c=d).
ABC Incorporatedis added to a note
XYZ Limitedis added to a note
LMN Industriesis added to a note
This recipes allows you to search for any notes that have any of the above tags, and adds the tag
Customers to them.
This greatly enhances to flexibility of your recipes by allowing you to search for multiple Triggers and applying the same Actions to the notes.
Tags can be used to create a hierarchy of notes by adding parent and child tags. But what happens when you need to search for all notes in that hierarchy? Searching for the parent tag does not return the child notes.
Tuskify can be used to automatically add the tag hierarchy to each note, so you can search on the parent tag (or even the parent's parent!) and it will return all child notes too.
ABC Incorporatedis added to a note
This recipe will automatically assign tag
Customers to any notes that have the tag
ABC Incorporated added.
Do you use Evernote to quickly take notes by using abbreviated words in the title? Tuskify can look for specific words in the note's title and replace it with something else.
NDAin the note title with
Non Disclosure Agreement
This recipe will look for the word
NDA anywhere in the note's and replace it with
Non Disclosure Agreement.
There are also triggers for finding words at the beginning or the end of the title.
Automatically be reminded of notes that require attention. Use Tuskify to look for notes with specific words and add a reminder.
1days to note
CBTin the note title with
Call Back Tomorrow
This recipe will search for any notes with
CBT at the end of the note title and adds a reminder for tomorrow. There is also an Action to lengthen the abbreviation
Call Back Tomorrow.
This recipe is a little more advanced because it contains 2 Actions. Tuskify allows you to add recipes with any combination of Triggers and Actions to give you the power to control your notes.
Do you use GTD ("Getting Things Done") to manage your projects and reminders? This recipe (combined with "GTD Part 2" next) can help you stay on top of the things you need to get done.
This recipe will look for notes that have a reminder due in the next
7 days and do not have the tag
Now. These notes will have the tag
Next added to them.
Combine this recipe with the next recipe "GTD Part 2" to tag notes due today with
Track the activity of your Evernote users by seeing what notes they have created.
This recipe will send you an email whenever a note is created by
David Jones so you can track the activity of your users.
You could also add another recipe to track when users update a note.
If you like to go back to yesterday's notes to review them, you can create a recipe to automatically tag them so you can find them.
To Reviewto note
This recipe uses a search to find notes that have a created date of
day-1 (today minus 1 day) and excludes notes with a created date of
today. The effect of this is to find all notes created yesterday.
We've already seen some pretty advanced searching in the recipes above, but Tuskify searching is not just limited to a few search types.
You can combine any of the triggers with the search trigger to create a truly powerful search.
Holidayis added to a note
This recipe is quite specific in what it searches for! It looks for notes that have the tag
activity in the note's title, that was created an
a mobile device and has an
image in the note content. These notes will then be moved to the notebook
Whilst this recipe might seem trivial, it shows the flexibility of what Tuskify can do. You are only limited by your imagination!
