Creating a Range(each dated) of Individual Notes in a Project

calendar

#1

Is is possible to create a range of individual notes/days within a project without having to create each individual day/note.

This would be very helpful. Suppose I create a project called April 2019. Is there a way to select a range of dates from April 1 to April 30 with each day being an individual note? This would be very helpful in planning ahead/journaling/etc.

When setting the date, click and drag from the day you want the timespan to start untill the day you want it to end.

Edit:


#3

Indeed click-and-drag is one way, the other is to select the first date, then shift-click the second date to create a range.


#4

This only creates one note with the date range. I was wondering if there was a way to create multiple notes with each being a single date (specified within the range). Range: April 1 - April 30. Note 1: April 1. Note 2: April 2, etc.


#5

Oh, my bad.

I don’t think you can do that right now. @mekentosj, correct me if I’m wrong.

You can create an iOS shortcut for that using X-callback url, but inside the app you cannot do that.


#6

To be honest, I would have no idea to set that up.


#7

Here you go!


#8

Wow! Thank you so much. This is game changing for me using Agenda.


#9

Do I have to input the date for each note. I tried the shortcut and it comes coming back to the title of the note.

I am very appreciative of the time you devoted to creating this shortcut.


#10

To clarify, and this may not be possible, I wanted the title of each note to be the date of said note. These projects will be used as logs in the future in which I can schedule tasks, notes, etc for each particular note.

This seems pedantic (wanting the title to be the date), but it deals with a job requirement.


#11

I also want to say that even if I manually enter the date for each note title, this shortcut is still a huge time saver. I don’t want to seem unappreciative of the work put into this by @mateusbmelchiades


#12

Oh, that’s even easier. I’ll do that in a minute. I’ll edit this comment with the new link when I finish.

Okay. This is awesome. I was even thinking of
moving away from Agenda, and this just changed everything.@mateusbmelchiades much appreciation for your work and time.


#14

Happy to help! :smiley:


#15

Brilliant stuff @mateusbmelchiades, it’s a nice example where a shortcut can fulfil a wish/need that is to specific to warrant a dedicated feature in Agenda itself.


#16

@mateusbmelchiades.
This is awesome and very useful.
Would there be a way to enter a standard text inside each note? That way it could be used as a template for meeting minutes etc.


#17

Done


#18

Whenever I run any of these I get a Callback error.

“The operation couldn’t be completed. (InterchangeCall-backErrorDomain error 0.)”

Any ideas on this? I couldn’t see anything obvious when I reviewed the code (but I’m a novice with shortcuts). Thanks!


#19

You would usually get this when you write a project name that doesn’t exist.

Are you sure you’re not misspelling your project name?

I don’t wanna sound rude, but just to remind you that this is the project.

Hope you get it working!

Yep, thanks. No luck after trying with multiple different projects. I’ll keep messing with it to see if I can get it working.
