In this week’s episode of working with Evernote I’m going to show you what the sort by function does hello and welcome to episode 94 of my working with Evernote series my name is Cal Pauline and in this week’s episode I want to show you a function that appears to be hidden but actually has a lot of power and.
Can help you to organize your notes within a notebook in various different ways and it.
Really does depend on how you want it to be shown so I want to go in and show you that this is called the sort.
By function and as I say it’s a little bit hidden but once you know where it is you can make some decisions on to how you want to actually have your notes shown.
Up within the notebook itself but before I do that I would just like to say if you like this video please click on the like button below and if you haven’t subscribed to my channel yet please subscribe okay let’s get into Evernote and I’ll show you.
What I mean okay so what I’m going.
To do is I’m going to show you like a sample that I did from last year and this is actually just a sample of my journal from 2017 and so what you’ve got here is a various days and they’re all actually in order of when they were created when date order right.
In order to actually access the sort by function you need to go into this icon here view options and you’ve got down at the bottom here sort by date where I’ve.
Got mine sort by date updated at the moment but you can actually create sort by date created which for.
A journal actually would be a very good way of doing it obviously if you’re creating a new note a journal a digital journal every single day but that could be the way that you want it now to be fair a lot of the projects that I have on notebooks that I have I actually wanted to show up by date opt updated simply because if I’ve got an actual physical note not a resource like a web clipping or something it’s probably.
Because I’m actually working on that note right now and therefore I really want to be able to get access to that very quickly from my mobile device so my preferred option for most of my notebooks is to have it include by its date up dated now you can obviously have it by title which will be completely useless for a journal because the title is just going to have all the Monday’s together all the Tuesday’s together all the Friday’s together and so on.
That would be completely useful useless got a date created date source URL I have no idea what that one actually means but maybe that’s because of the obviously from a general point of view is it’s.
Not going to actually work anyway you can actually have it by size so it would have the size at the top the size at the bottom again within the journal that’s not going to be any use to you but it might be useful to you if you actually got a load of attachments that you want to get access to show notes in groups is one of those ones I’ve got no.
Groups in here but if you actually had things grouped together it would.
Actually show up in there and sort by show his shirts results in groups but these are the things largest to smallest smallest to largest you can actually have.
It set up exactly how you want it now for most of you guys out there I’m gonna guess you’re either going to use by title date created or date updated I think these are really just for their more advanced features which I will go into in another episode but for now the ones that you really want to be.
Looking at is these ones here by title which means by alphabetical.
Order by date created means by creating the date obviously that the note was created the most useful one I found is by date updated because that actually helps me to see the notes that I’ve actually been working on over the last few days or few weeks so to get access.
To your sort by it basically shows up in the list that you want to see how you want to see it so you can do it.
By title by day created by day updated source URL is going to be essentially the whether you being organized it by the websites that you are actually sending information over size of course is.
Obviously how you want basically you want it showing and groups is when you’ve got notes grouped together which I.
Will go into it groups that were going to and.
Another episode for now I just wanted to show you the various options that you have for date sort by but these are really really important because sometimes you’re working on a note regular and you have to think about how you’re going to.
Look at it on a mobile device how you’re going to look at it from your computer ok sure episode today I hope you found it useful if you have any questions please leave a comment in the comment section below it just remains for me.
Now to wish you all a very very productive week you.
