How to create a saved search

If there is a search term or phrase that you use frequently, you can save it to Evernote. Saved searches are synced across all of your devices.

Create a saved search

  • Mac

    Execute a search, then select Edit > Find > Save Search from the menu bar.

  • Windows

    Select File > New Saved Search... from the menu bar or click the + next to Saved searches in the left panel.

  • iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

    Execute a search, then tap the save search button (magnifying glass with + symbol on it).

  • Android

    Execute a search, tap the three dots button, then tap Add to Home Screen. Note: Saved searches that are created on Android will not be synced across all of your devices. They are only available on the Android device on which they are created.

  • Web

    Execute a search, click the three vertical dots at the top of the note list panel, then click Save search....

Use tags in a saved search

If you tag your notes, you can create saved searches to help you find notes based on those tags. Set up saved searches for the tags as a part of your search criteria. Tags can be combined with advanced search syntax to create very specific saved searches. For example:

  • Notebook:"Current Projects" Tag:approval_pending design
  • Results in: Any notes in the "Current Projects" notebook with the word "design" and tagged as "approval_pending"
