I know this has been asked before, I think the “Actions” addition in 11.x is the key, but I’m not quite able to figure it out. Hoping for a little community guidance
I’m a long-time Noteplan user, who has recently made the switch to Agenda. Being a technical sales guy who absolutely LIVES in meetings, the date-driven nature of Agenda is a game changer for me.
There is one part of my Noteplan workflow that isn’t exactly native to Agenda, but I believe I have a work around. I loved the “daily” note that existed in Noteplan for each day. It was a bit of a blank canvas, tied only to the date. I used that note every morning as a journal/scratch pad of sorts. I’d quick type out my focus for the day, thoughts/feelings, a rough outline of things I needed to accomplish, etc.
To duplicate this in Agenda, I’ve created a project called “Daily Planner”. Each morning (or the night before if I’m being proactive) I create a new note by clicking on the day and clicking “New Note on This Day”. That will create a new note in that “Daily Planner” project, with the title of the note being the date (Oct 12, 2020). Simple, and fixes that little void I miss from Noteplan.
Today, I had some free time and started to think about a more “structured” daily note. A template, I thought! That would be perfect. So, I created a template with some structure and saved it as “Daily Template”. I can now click on the date, and click “New Note From Template”, choose my template and BOOM…oh…wait…my title isn’t right.
My template is there, but the title of the note is “Untitled Template”. Okay. Not great. I wanted the title of the note to be the date. I feel like that’s something you should be able to do with “actions” but I’ve spent like 15 minutes messing around and I still can’t figure out how to get my title right.
Anyone have any guidance on this one. I’m not completely picky about the format. I just wanted the title of that note each day to clearly show the date I tied the note to as the title. I know that someone said this should be possible with Actions but I can’t seem to figure it out.
