How do I create a saved search?

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

Create a saved search

Windows: Perform your search, then click the 'Save search...' button

Mac: Perform your search, then select Edit > Find > Save Search

iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch: Perform your search, then tap the save search button (magnifying glass with + symbol on it)

Android: Perform your 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 will be available only on the Android device they are created on.


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.
