No updates other than that we know what we’d like to introduce, there’s a bunch of higher priority things in the queue ahead of it though.

yep, automator is the way to go…. works cross platform too!
Hi @Steve_Kelly, can you share how you did this? I tried running a script and it did not work. Thanks
install this app https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/wordservice/id899972312?mt=12 then access via Keyboard/ services in settings. simple!
+1 vote for this even though it’s been a year!
+1 for a time stamp please!
Hello, some news about this functionality….?
It is very important with every(hour)day working with notes in Agenda….
I vote for it strongly….thnx
No news yet, we have something in mind but it’s still a bit out as other items have a higher priority i’m afraid. In the mean time this post offers some alternatives:
Looking forward to a simple time stamp! (Don’t want the TextExpander bells and whistles, and endless updates)
Got a really frustrating use case at the moment. Trying to get a response from a large company, which is involving seemingly endless telephone calls and left messages that don’t get a response. I want to keep track of who I spoke to when, but it would be overkill and confusing, to open a new note each time just to type “left message for Jack John re the thing” or “receptionist said Jack John has left, not yet been replaced” etc.
Yeah, I really would like to have a timestamp feature as well. The other app that use for notes, Bear App, has this feature and I use it all the time. If Agenda had this feature it would definitely be a big plus.
As a workaround, I use the keyboard shortcuts. I’ve got one which expands to #created(today) . Works on MacOS and iPad. You end up with a tag with the appropriate date.
Could you please share how you do this? I’m familiar with Keyboard > Text in MacOS/iOS, but I don’t see how to create a relative date.
"#created (today)” is a special tab that Agenda recognizes in a note, and automatically expands it with the appropriate date. You can use it directly - type it in - but since it’s a bunch of characters to type, I use the MacOS and iPadOS keyboard shortcuts feature to make it easier on my fingers. The shortcut gets expanded, and then interpreted in an Agenda note.
After a bit of experimentation I’ve discovered this is exactly what I need! I sometimes need to keep a record of my contact with a client or stakeholder. If it’s a substantive contact it merits its own note - eg a record of a meeting.
But often, it’s a single note to keep track of my attempts to call someone, or to summarise an ongoing ‘conversation’, eg called X, Y said he’s on leave until Monday; called X today, left voicemail; X called said he can’t help, speak to Z.
Followin Chris’s prompt I’ve realised I can now create tags for this situations:
#called(today) #emailed(yesterday) etc
In fact it can be #anything(today)!
I’ll now create relevant shortcuts in Keyboard prefs - thanks!
As far as a DATE stamp, this solves it for me. But a TIME stamp would be cool - all it would take would be for #tag(time) or #tag(now) to expand to DATE&TIME.
“#anything(today)” — wow, now I learned something! Thanks!!!
We all just saved $40 a year we can put towards Agenda….
Great tip, and indeed you can use it for many different situations. Regarding the time stamp feature, we still have some ideas coming in a future update of Agenda that will make this possible. Now we just need to find the time to get to it…
Hi, is it any news for time stamps for this year?
Really need this feature (for TIME stamp only and for both TIME & DATE stamp)
Good news, it’s already there: Creating and Using Templates and Actions. You can type
\now to insert a timestamp. Plus, the link above shows you how to you can further tweak the format to your liking.
