How to use Siri with Evernote

You can use Evernote with the help of Siri. Simply activate Siri and ask her to perform a task in Evernote. Siri can:

  • Create a new note
  • Create a note with a task list
  • Add to an existing note
  • Add to an existing task list
  • Search for notes in Evernote

Overview

Create

Use Siri to create a brand new note. Siri can create text notes from your voice input, so try something like, “Hey Siri, create a ‘Meeting ideas’ note in Evernote.”

Append

Use Siri to add text to an existing note. If you already have a note or task list in Evernote, you can simply tell Siri to add more text. “Add ‘Order lunch’ to my ‘Meeting ideas’ note.”

Search

Use Siri to search for a note in your Evernote account. Siri searches note titles, notebook names, tag names, and stack names. Siri also understands inferred date ranges, so you can say something like “Show me what notes I created in Evernote last week,” or “Show me what notes I updated today.”

Siri Shortcuts

With iOS 12, we also support Siri Shortcuts. You can create custom voice commands to view a note, notebook, space, or saved search; create a new camera note or audio note; copy a note link to the clipboard; or print the current note.

For example, create a daily to-do list note that you’d like to open at the beginning of each day. Set up a Siri Shortcut to open that note every time you say, “What do I need to focus on today?”

To save a Siri Shortcut:

  1. Open a note, notebook, space, or saved search
  2. Tap the Options menu (three dots) at the top right
  3. Select Create a Siri Shortcut
  4. Record a custom voice command for Siri to recognize

You can view shortcut settings and suggested shortcuts by opening the iOS Settings app and navigating to Siri & Search > Evernote.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to use specific commands or sentence structure with Siri?

No. Siri can understand natural language.

What if I have multiple notes with the same title (e.g., "Meeting Notes")?

If Siri isn’t sure which note you’re referring to, you will be shown a list of matching or related notes to choose from.

Does Evernote support using Siri on a Mac?

No. Currently, macOS does not support SiriKit—the technology that allows Siri to handle your requests.
