How do I create note for future months in Periodic notes?

Things I have tried

What I’m trying to do

I like using the Periodic Notes plugin but can’t figure a way to create a note for a future month. I can use the calendar to create future daily notes or click on the week in the calendar for future weekly notes, but clicking on the month doesn’t do anything and I can’t find a commands either. Any help would be appreciated.

I’m confused about this as well. The github page for Periodic Notes says:

Note: This README has been preemptively updated in anticipation for v1.0. Not all features described here are available in the current stable release 0.0.17.

…so I went ahead and installed the beta.3, restarted Obsidian, but I’m not seeing the “Periodic Notes: Show date switcher…” or “Periodic Notes: open next weekly note” in the command pallet. These commands do show up under hotkeys, but nothing happens when assigned and used (I double checked the hotkeys weren’t previously assigned to anything.)


Exact same problem here. I don’t think it can be done, so I just make a copy of the current monthly note, then change the details for the future month. Not idea.

I’m sure it could be done with Templater, but that one’s a bit above my mental pay-grade at this point.

The (slightly buggy) behaviour I get with 1.0.0-beta.3 is that the 5 shortcuts “Open next X-ly note” for X = day, week, month, quarter, and year, all do the same thing: it just opens the next Z-ly note if you’re currently in an Z-ly note, and does nothing otherwise. But it seems like not a major issue. The date switcher can do most of the work, and the 5 “open today’s / this week’s … note” commands seem to always work, so it’s alright.
