Is there anyway obsidian can automatically embed & list backlinks in my notes?

for example, i have a journal moc note that i link all of my daily notes into, and i’d like it to list all of the dailies that i’ve linked to this journal note automatically. i know i could probably just access the backlinks pane, and it would work just fine, but that just feels pretty unintuitive.

As of v0.9.3

“When using global search, you can now copy the search results file list. This can be optionally formatted as wikilinks and/or as lists.”

I will return and edit if this is wrong, but I am pretty sure you can search using the following assuming your note is named “my note”:

content: [[my note]]

And then use the new awesome feature described at top. It is a button icon that looks like two files in the search pane.

I only wish this was around a little earlier on, when I was regularly needing it a lot. I am sure I will be needing it in future projects, but just seeing your post is bringing back memories. I had quite a slow and annoying process for accomplishing it using OCR on screenshots of backlink pane list then using a find and replace to append the double brackets on each entry. See here Copy page links from Tag and Backlinks Panes to clipboard

Hope I got it right and that it helps you.

Have a look at this post - is this what you’re asking for?

I haven’t gone through the whole thread as this feature is currently not very important for me, but I think that might come close to what you are looking for.

edit: I linked the wrong post first - has been corrected. But I haven’t read all the following discussions, so maybe some adaptations could be necessary…

I think this tool can help you list out your dailies (provided that you can have [[link]] or unique keywords to search)
And you can refresh the list by rerun the function.
