Hey guys, is it possible to find Evernote notes with a certain tag (e.g. Blank), parse a date out of the title, then give them a new tag (e.g. Delete) if that date is in the past?

Thanks very much for your help here. I'm looking for the 'Existing Notes' option, as I'm doing this to keep my Evernote neat. Basically I already use a great zap to generate notes for specific meeting invites I get through Outlook. Sometimes I use these notes, but sometimes I don't need them so can delete after (if I remember). It would be great to delete any notes that are still blank after a certain time has passed.
However, I have worked out a solution through Siri Shortcuts. It needs running once a month, but I've set up an automated notification.
In case anyone is interested in how it works / thinks this can be replicated in Zapier, here are the steps:
- Scheduled middle of every month
- Get current date
- Minus 1 month
- Formats date to match evernote date in title
- Searches for notes with that date in title and tag - 'Blank'
- Shows Notes in Quick look
- Option to delete the notes, or not
Seems to work well. Anyway, though, I'm happy to be part of the Zapier community as I'm sure I'll have questions from future zaps!
