Hello, is this dynamic ?
I mean if I generated a list of notes with tag name: todo/work, then I added another note with the same tag. Will the list refresh ?

Hey there! Not dynamic, in the sense that the list will not refresh automatically. That's a more involved feature, and I'm not sure we can do it with the current plugin API (nor that it would be very performant if we could). However, we can add an option to refresh the list of notes in an easier way. Let me know if you have any ideas!

Hello Lucian,

Sorry for the late response. For refreshing, unfortunately after list generation we have no reference of used tags or field value. We could after generation for the first time add a table of the used tags and field value. There are a lot of options to trigger a refresh. For example, it could be a noteOption.

Would it be also possible to search for tasks?

I have something in my mind like a start note for a project to have all
- Meeting Minutes
- Tasks
- Notes
- Concepts
- Ideas

in one note as reference. Even if it's not dynamic.

Good idea! Any specifics on how you would like the task search to occur? Do you just want to search by text or note reference or something else?

what's the syntax for the tag query? Can AND, OR and NOT be used?

10:27am on November 28, 2023

Hey Lieke! The syntax matches the one in the in-app search fields. That is, you can only use "AND" and "NOT". For example, "AND" is a comma: tag1,tag2 will match notes that have both tags applied. "NOT" is a caret: tag1,^tag2 will match all notes that have tag1 but do not have tag2.

Let me know if you'd like support for OR or anything else and I can add it to my list.

Lucian, I'm a newbie to Amplenote so I apologize in advance for what is probably a "stupid" question . . .

I read the notes but my brain has been working on exporting/importing from Evernote so it is apparently not working well temporarily,

The note says, "After installing the plugin, type { and you will have 3 new options"
==>Stupid question #1: Where do I type?

"For performance considerations, this plugin only searches inside notes with a certain tag (as you define in the settings screen)"
==>Stupid question #2: Which settings screen?

I'm likely missing something obvious. I'm using the mobile app and the Windows app, but I checked the online version too.

@Mike -

Good questions! Thanks for posting them. I will also add clarifications to the instructions to help others too.

1. Whenever you are editing a note or a task, you can type a curly bracket { (but make sure it's preceded by a space). This will bring up the menu that allows you to insert expressions and plugins. You are interested in the plugins part. If you type in "{Amplequery" you will see a list of all of the options exposed by the Amplequery plugin.

2. The "Settings screen" is found over at https://www.amplenote.com/account/plugins. You first have to choose "Amplequery" from the list of plugins that appear on that page. After you do so, you will see a list of "settings" that you can alter for this particular plugin.

Let me know if I can help further.

@Lucian - MUCH appreciated!
