How to find to-do notes (checklists)

Notes containing checkboxes (also referred to as 'to-do notes') can be filtered using the 'todo:' operator in the Evernote search bar.

  • To show all notes containing checkboxes that are not checked: todo:false
  • To show all notes containing checkboxes that are checked: todo:true
  • To show all notes containing checkboxes that are either checked or not checked: todo:*

This operator can be used with other search operators to perform more specific searches of your to-do notes. For example, if you wanted to see all of your undone to-do items in your 'Tasks' notebook, you could find those by issuing this search: notebook:Tasks todo:false.

In addition, using the new search in Evernote Web, you can simply type the word 'checkboxes' into the search bar, then click the checkboxes filter when it appears in the search dropdown.
