I have two things I’d like to do when creating a note from a template on an arbitrary date. I suspect they are feature requests:
- Set the note title based on the date
- Create a reminder using the date
\date seems to always be today, and
\event-date doesn’t seem to exist for notes that are not associated with a calendar event.
What I do now is include
Title: date(for: DATE, full) and
remind( date(for: DAY, short) 6:30am) in the template. After I create the note, I edit the
DATE to be whatever it should be, and insert the
\ to get Agenda to process the actions. Then I paste the first value into the note title. It works, but of course I’d love to create a note from a template on a certain day and have everything set up and ready to go.
edit: aaaaand as I set up my week template to do the same, I see why it doesn’t do that I don’t know if
end-date would be worthwhile or not. FWIW I actually like the behavior of Agenda setting the note title from the selected date. But when using templates on a date range, it sets the title to the template name - so it’s not easy to do that. It ends up being easier to create an undated note from a template, delete the title, and then assign it a date. Which, given that there doesn’t appear to be a way to insert the date to all-day note templates, isn’t much of a deal. It would be nice if we could get
\end-date in the note body and the default date-based behavior in the title when creating dated notes from templates though.
