Daily Notes will create a new note that is automatically named with the current date. If it already exists, it will open that note. This is a useful way to create a daily log, todo list, or a list of links to notes that you have created on a specific day.
The date format and default folder for Daily Notes can be set in Settings Plugin Options, and choose Daily Notes option. The default date format is “YYYY-MM-DD” (ISO format). This format means that a list of daily notes, listed in alphabetical order, will also be in chronological order.
This Github page has some vaults you can install to see the different ways that users create workflows and use tools. Depending on the vault, you may be able to see things like scripts, templates, themes, snippets, workspaces and plugins.

Ctrl + Z on Windows and Cmd + Z on Mac.
Link to files To create an internal link, simply type [[. This will prompt you with the list of notes you can link to. Use Up arrow and Down arrow to navigate the suggestion list and Enter to select the current highlighted link.
Link to headings You can also link to specific headers in files. Start typing a link like you would normally. When the note you want is highlighted, press # instead of Enter and you’ll see a list of headings in that file. Continue typing or navigate with arrow keys as before, press #again at each subheading you want to add, and Enter to complete the link.
