Get List Of All Periodic Notes

"Periodic Note" is a collective term for Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly and Yearly Notes. In v1.3+, Periodic Notes replace what was previously only available for Daily Notes.

🚨 Working with Daily Notes requires either the core Daily Notes plugin or the Periodic Notes community plugin. Working with Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly or Yearly Notes requires the Periodic Notes community plugin.

Screenshot of the action

This action returns all Periodic Note file paths as a list of texts, sorted from newest to oldest. It does not return the notes themselves, just their paths.

Use the "Get Note" action with the returned file paths to get the actual note content.


Most of the time you would use this action to get a list of all the file paths of your Periodic Notes of a certain type (Daily, Weekly, etc.), then loop over the results list using the built-in "Repeat With" block. If you want to retrieve the details of the notes, you would use a "Get Note" action and use the loop variable Repeat Item as the argument for the "File Path or Name" parameter.

Like so:

If you want to filter the list by folders etc., I recommend using the "Filter List" action from Sindre Sorhus's excellent Actions app (no relation) or a built-in "Repeat With" loop with a contained "If" action.
