Apple Shortcuts - Create note if it doesn't exist

I’ve got a few shortcuts that look for existing notes and do things if they don’t exist. The experience however is not exactly clean. The current Get note shortcut will explode if the note you’re requesting does not exist which then leads to using the Search notes shortcut which is mostly fine unless the note you’re searching for yields multiple returns.

Ideally there should be a Get note or create shortcut that would create a note with the given title if it does not yield a result instead of erroring. Or even a boolean on the existing Get note shortcut.

I am sure that there are many others that would find this useful :smiley:


I would indeed love this. Checking the existence of a note through Shortcuts is tedious.

@trix180 don’t suppose this is something that could become a reality
