Create Notes, Tasks from Notes and Labels


Now we have set our task up: "Make a Cup of Tea", next we want to associate more information with it. Maybe a shopping list of the materials needed.

As before following on from the previous Quick Start tutorial, we recommend opening a new browser tab and follow the steps along. It should take about 5 minutes to complete this.

Let's Make a Note

After logging into DayViewer, Select Notes in the Side Panel Menu

We will once again use the Quick Entry form. (on mobile, the quick entry will drop down when you click the button )

Enter "Tea Shopping List" as the Title. Add any short description or just leave blank. Click ADD button to create the Shopping List Note.

Open your new note by clicking on the Title or the Edit Icon, Next select List and enter a typical list of materials/ ingredients you need to complete the task.

Next save and View your note - it should look something like the image below.

Label Note & Task

Great, we have a note and a task. They are both a very similar theme - let's tie them up together with a label. maybe "Beverage"

The best way to create a label is to go to the Labels section in DayViewer.

Next, enter Beverage in the Add Label form field. Choose any colour you like for this label

The label has been created now apply it to the entries you need to attach the label to.

You know the label has been applied when the lower border changes to the background colour of the label. There is also a tag with the label name in the Entry Card itself.

Once that is all done, do the same with the Task we made in the Quick Start tutorial.

Create Task from Note

We can push this note to the calendar - and make it a "Task", this allows you to use Notes as a template system for quicker task entry.

Go to Notes section, view the Tea Shopping List card in the card view, next click the Calendar Icon in card icon menu

Select a Start Date and duration, and set Entry Type to Task set priority to "Normal"

The other details including list, label, description and label will have copied over from the note.

Once all done, the Tea Shopping task will be present in your calendar at the time specified - adjust times to plan as required!

A handy way to find all tasks with the same label is to go into your Labels area and click on the label.

It's great practice that you label entries - it keeps everything organized and easier to find and recall. You can imagine in a more complicated situation where labels could be clients, staff, topics, part numbers, job numbers, locations or departments - in business this is an invaluable tool.
