I’d like to be able to configure in Obsidian how the Zettelkasten IDs are generated.
I have two problems with the default identifier that looks like
- I find the number hard to comprehend (read). Something like
2020-06-03 1706is easier for me to quickly read.
- I have 2.000 notes from an other application that use another identifier format. If I could configure in Obsidian how the ID is generated, I can easily import the content and don’t have to change my workflow too much.
Ideally I’d love to have a text field in the Obsidian settings where I can for instance type
%Y-%M-%D %h%m and have Obsidian use that format to generate identifiers.
This way everyone that likes a customised or particular format for their IDs can combine those letters in the way they like best.
Thanks for listening.
