Objective: I want to automatically update the title of an existing note/file based on the value populated in a specific YAML field (
Use Case: I have notes about wines with YAML metadata. When I populate the
winename field in the YAML, I’d like the note’s title (i.e., the filename) to be automatically updated to reflect this
For instance, if my YAML looks like:
winename: Chardonnay Vintage 2021
I want the note’s title to change to “Chardonnay Vintage 2021”.
Current Setup: I’ve tried using Dataview queries to filter notes based on the
winename value, but haven’t found a way to automate the renaming process.
Question: Is there a way, possibly using plugins, scripts, or a combination of features in Obsidian, to achieve this behavior? Any advice, plugins, or workflow suggestions would be much appreciated.
