Shortcut to quickly start a new note in a specific folder in Apple Notes?

I’m looking for a way to have a shortcut on my home screen that will let me quickly start a new note in the main folder in Apple Notes. The shortcut has to have an input field before it’s completed.

Anyone know of how to do this?

Is this what you are seeking?

Yes looks like it. It doesnt have to be a specific folder as I just want it to go to the main Apple Notes folder, as that is what I use as my Inbox.

Can you share that shortcut with me please? :slight_smile:

Here it is…


I don’t know your specific use case, but Control Center includes a button that allows you to create a new Note in the iCloud Notes folder with one tap. No Shortcut needed.

My idea was to try and make do without Drafts and just rely completely on Apple Notes. I use drafts for just quick capture of stuff cause it’s fast and then I use it form long-form when I have to rely on text-expander because I’m only on iPad and iPhone. But I don’t think I can do without drafts completely because of the TextExpander thing
