No one is more aware than we are that discussions around Evernote and some sort of native to do/alerts system go back years. For much of that time, we spent working out exactly how something could be implemented and satisfy the broader needs of users. And for iOS, Mac, and Evernote Web, Reminders are here.
From our blog:
Reminders are incredibly easy to use. You can add a Reminder to a note by simply tapping on the alarm clock icon located at the top of the note on Mac and Web, and at the bottom of the note on iPhone and iPad. If you like, set a date and time for when this note must be completed.
You’ll get an in-app alarm and, optionally, an email the day that a Reminder is due. Once set, you’ll see the note title appear in the new Reminder section at the top of the note list. You can change the order of Reminders simply by dragging them around. When you complete your task, tap on the check or, on iOS, swipe to remove the Reminder from the list.
Reminders are also available through shared notebooks, including public notebooks. If you're managing a team or resources with a group of people through a shared notebook, these become even more powerful, as you're essentially able to create a series of notifications for users who have opted into a shared notebook.
This is, of course, only the first iteration of Reminders, and we have support for other clients well underway, as well as plans for growing their functionality in the future.
