I'm trying to create a recipe similar to this one where I record all of my Foursquare check-ins on a particular day to a single note for that day in Evernote.

Unfortunately, the {{CheckinDate}} ingredient uses time as well as date (Example: April 29, 2013 at 12:01PM). What I need is just the date (April 29, 2013).

So, I can have a separate note for every check-in (by using the date), or have all Foursquare check-ins written to a single note (until it fills up and creates a new note). Neither of which is what I want.

Is there a way to get all Foursquare check-ins on a particularly calendar date to be in one Evernote note?

I thought about using my Foursquare RSS feed the but {{EntryPublished}} ingredient is formatted the same way (with the time).


I contacted IFTTT support and they told me that this is currently not possible (within IFTTT) but that they'll take it as feedback for future enhancements.

So, the answer would appear to be "you can't".

I'd love to see some ideas for alternatives using a third-party solution.

    6 years later and we still cant format dates. -_- – bdetweiler Mar 7 '19 at 12:34

I think the most important part of your recipe is record all check-ins to a single note. So maybe change title format by hand per week is an acceptable solution.

{{EntryPublished}} is for the date of the publication.

  • {{EntryPublished}} is not available as an ingredient from the Foursquare channel. – ale Jun 9 '15 at 22:09
  • As for the RSS feed, {{EntryPublished}} is still in the format August 23, 2010 at 11:01PM. – ale Jun 9 '15 at 22:14
