Tags can be renamed. Click the cog icon in the top right corner and select Change Prefer­ences. For example, you might want § to indicate brains­tormed ideas or stat blocks.

Search­/Filter Bar

Searches and lists all Log Entries for the world Johnn
Filters Log Entries that just have the @Johnn tag
Hello Johnn
Filters Log Entries that have both Hello and Johnn in them
@Johnn #Edmonton
Lists Log Entries that have both tags present
Filters all Log Entries that have @Johnn but do not have Hello.
Play with the Search­/Filter feature. It's power comes from adding multiple items to it to quickly narrow down results. For example,
*Session27 @Bruno #Inn
would return all Log Entries from session 27 involving Bruno at the inn.

Prefix & Suffix

Put text here that you want added to the front of each new Log Entry. For example, I add the session number: Session27.
Add text here you want put at the end of each new Log Entry.
You can use tags in Prefixes and Suffixes.


Put multi-word tags in double quotes. For example: @"Johnn Four"
Remove punctu­ation from tags with double quotes. For example, Hi @"Johnn Four".
Write shorter Log entries to harness the power of tagging and filtering. Long text blocks make it harder to find stuff when you need it.
Back up often. Use the Download log feature in case you make a big mistake. You can import JSON backups into new temporary Campaign Logs to recover inform­ation.
Use the copy feature to create stat blocks and other reusable chunks for faster prep.
Web App users, use your browser search function in combin­ation with Logger's search­/filter for even faster searches.
Evernote, MyInfo and other app users, paste in URLs to your notes for easy cross-­ref­ere­ncing.
