I’m using org-roam-dailies with no capture template, just invoking org-roam-goto-today and typing away there at the end of my day. When I do that, the org file that gets created has a title with YYYY-MM-DD format, e.g. “2023-02-25”. Now from browsing through previous days entries I’ve realized that it could be very helpful if the file’s title would rather be “2023-02-25 Sunday”. Is there a way to make it so the automatically generated title includes the day name?
Thanks @FFS for your reply. I’m quite interested in your suggestion of including also the week and the day of the year in the title. However, I’m not sure I follow where I should put this part that you cite
#+TITLE: %<%Y-%m-%d %A | week %W | day %j>
in order for the title in org-roam-dailies files to be automatically changed/generated following that format.
Would you be so kind as to explain that? I’m sorry if this is a trivial question, I’m still taking my first steps in emacs coming from vim and there’s plenty of details that I might -most surely- be missing.
This is very basic setup and would be enough for journaling. There are more complicated setups like to integrate org-roam-dailies with the famous org-agenda setup, this is advanced use. See this post if interested in integration.
Then when you hit C-c n j you get a capture template to be completed.
