What are Notes?

Notes is a tool that lets you take time-stamped notes while learning. You can mark important topics or sections you want to recall for real-world application later, and easily find and rewatch key points of videos within the course.

With Notes, you can write during a specific point in the video timeline, organize them with hashtags to easily find them and jump to the video, and review them in the video player or on the Notes page.


How do I add, edit, and delete my Notes?

  3. Pretty Enter on your keyboard to add the note.

How do I download my Notes?

You can download your Notes in two different ways. You can download all your Notes or only Notes for a specific course.

Download all Notes

Go to your Notes page by clicking on the notes icon in the left pane of your dashboard or by clicking here. Click the Download notes link in the top right corner to download a csv of all of your Notes.

Download Notes for a specific course

Navigate to a video in the course, click on Notes in the right sidebar, then click Download notes.


How do I search my Notes?

The Notes feature supports hashtags for searching capabilities. In order to organize your Notes, use a hashtag, e.g., #api, to organize your Notes and make them searchable.

You can also navigate to your Notes page and use the "Search notes..." field to search through your notes.


How can I format my Notes? 

Our Notes feature uses markdown for formatting, and specifically Github flavored markdown. 

Additionally, you can use a number sign (#) to create a tag, for example #javascript, that would let you access all notes you've created across all your courses, that you tagged as #javascript.

Tip: Use Shift-Enter to create a line break. Pressing Enter will save your Note unless you toggle that off.

Here are the different stylings you can use with Markdown in Pluralsight notes:

Headers

You can use # symbols to create six sizes of headers and subheaders to organize your Notes.

# Header 1
## Header 2
### Header 3
#### Header 4
##### Header 5
###### Header 6

Alternate method: You can create 2 levels of headers with dashes/equals signs.

Header 1

Header 2
