How Search/Find works?


I am using Agenda daily. It helps me to take notes, integrate with Reminders and Calendar. It is perfect. Where I struggle is:
1, find a project: I know the project name, but I need to list (usually expand) and skim through all my projects and categories to find it. Is there a better way to do this? Why I am asking. My use-case is: I want to start writing a note for a project. But everything is left panel selection driven here. So when I pres cmd+n, a new note is created but a different project, then I need to move it.
2, find and replace text in a note. I usually have to use a different tool for this.

Thank you

Today we released a new sharing extension. This should help if you need to add things to a different note from a different app.

We are hoping to use this same technology to offer other ways to enter things. I think this will help a lot with the issue you mention.

Perhaps long-pressing the New Note + button could have an entry “Add New Note To…” that opens the new note destination menu?

@vitezslav.papiez for now, if you long-press the Agenda icon from the home screen and choose “New Note” then Agenda presents the list of projects you can add to. On my iPad I can drag up from the bottom to show the dock, then long-press the Agenda icon. Works pretty well!

any recommendation on the searching the correct project?
any recommendation on the find&replace all functionality?


Searching in a particular project should just work if you select the project, and enter the search. By default, it will filter the current project. You then have a choice to extend that to all projects.

We currently don’t have any find and replace. Would be good to add. Thanks for the feedback!

Let me clarify, I want to find the project, not the text in project notes. Let me give you an example.
I have two projects ProjectA and ProjectB. There is a tone of notes in both. Project B is selected in the left panel. I navigate to the search input field and I type “ProjectA” then press “Search in All Projects”. as the top results I got texts from various notes. Imagine that you have dozens of projects. How would you find just the ProjectA? Thank you for advice here.

I see. No, we have no project title search yet. The search is entirely notes based.

We will consider this option. Thanks for sending it in.

Kind regards,


Hi Drew, is searching in titles on the agenda? :wink:

In the new Agenda v13 you’ll find a new premium feature „Open Quickly“ that seems to be a solution of your request to find projects by title:

Very cool, in deed. Helps me a lot!
