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 icon (magnifying glass with + symbol on it).

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

iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch: Perform your search, then tap the Save Search icon (magnifying glass with + symbol on it).

Android: Perform your search, then tap Add to Home Screen.


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 (and/or combination of tags) as a part of your search criteria. Tags can be combined with advanced search syntax to create very specific saved searches.
