Simple info management in Obsidian

I want to take daily notes about my life: family, work, friends, thougths with different tags, important things and so on.
So I decided to organize the daily note into headings.
I’d like to be able to easily manipulate all that information, that is, to get:

  • a page that contains all my thougths with a given tag in a given week
  • a page that contains all my todo in a given month
  • other types of summary
    and so on

How could I achieve that? I think with the search function but I’d like to have an automatically generated page rather copy and paste results every time.


It depends a great deal on the form and content of your notes.

Try a few queries (see the search help pages in the docs).

There’s also a variety of plugins for searching through notes:

  • Vantage helps create complex search queries
  • Obsidian Query Language provides more advanced search capabilities
  • dataview can create dynamic tables and lists based on search terms

If you always have the same headings, you can adjust them to use transclusion.

Instead of a heading for each item, use a paragraph. In the paragraph, write everything about that topic. At the end, include a paragraph ID. If you always use the same paragraph ID, you can use transclusion to pull out content on a specific topic.

I do this with my daily notes to pull summaries:

There hasn’t been any activity for 5 days, could you please see if you’d like to pick any of the existing answers as the solution, or do you still need help with something?

Would appreciate it if you could clarify on that, thanks!

I have not found time to try the different solutions yet, so please give me some days to choose.
