Notification on Android Status Bar

in Android ColorNote, I will see icons/notifications on my status bar, until I remove them, for every note/checklist I have with a reminder set to "Pin to Status Bar."

That's what I am looking for, not an alarm type of notification.  Does that make sense, and is that what you state?

Thanks,

William

No,  sorry - ColorNote is different software designed to show you a link each time you 'Pin to Status Bar'.  Evernote has no such option.  It's actually a good idea though - I'll move this post to a Feature Request forum where others can vote on the idea if they support it.  You can't vote as the originator,  but I'll start you off with my vote for a new option: 'Pin Note to Status Bar'

William, I'm not quite clear on what you're looking for that's not already available. In the Evernote app for Android, every time a notification goes off it puts an elephant icon in the status bar, and when I pull down the notification list it shows the title of each item for which there has been a notification. The notifications remain there until I dismiss them. This is the default behavior, and doesn't require a "pin to status bar action" (which, as @gazumped said, is not available in Evernote). Would it get you closer to what you want if you just set a reminder for 1 minute after you create or update the item, which will have the effect of putting it in the status bar after 1 minute?

I guess it could,  but the intent I took from this is that we want to be able to create a note - a 'work in progress' sort of thing - and pin to taskbar,  then go on to do something else on the device.  When a situation arises that I want to record in my note,  all I have to do is swipe down the taskbar and tap the icon to jump straight to the note...

Ah, I see. (Let me know, @senorwillburr, if that's right!) In which case my 1-minute reminder idea wouldn't work, since it would clear from the notification area when it was tapped. Well, that type of pinning does sound like a good idea.
