Evernote Tip: Modify the “Date Updated” field to sort notes to the top

I usually have my Evernote notes sorted by the Updated property. This let’s me easily get to notes I am currently working on.

Sometimes I’ll find a few more notes that I want near the top, but I don’t want to modify their contents to force them there. For example, I may just want them for reference.

Here are a few ways to update the Updated attribute without modifying the note’s content:

  • PC:
    • Type a space at the end of the title;
    • or press the left align button on text that is already left aligned.
  • Mac:
    • Press the left align button on text that is already left aligned.
  • iPad:
    • Edit the note, type a space at the end of the title, Save.
  • iPhone:
    • Edit the note, type a space at the end of the title, Save.
  • Web:
    • Edit the note, type a space at the end of the title, Save and close.

None of the above methods will change the note’s contents. Whitespace is simply stripped out from the title field when the note is saved.
