All Notes filtering in Evernote Web

In Evernote, you can use filters to help you find what you need faster. You can apply one or more filters by clicking the filters button at the top right of the note list. The following filters are available:

  • Tags - Select from a list of tags in your account
  • Located in - Select from a list of notebooks (everyone) or spaces (Evernote Business) you have access to
  • Contains - Select from a list of specific content types, such as images or PDFs
  • Created - Select a specific date or date range when the note was created
  • Updated - Select a specific date or date range when the note was most recently updated

To remove filters from your note list, click Clear All in the upper right corner of the "Add Filters" box.

Note: Note filtering is only available in the new Evernote for Mac, new Evernote for Windows, and the new Evernote Web.
