Action Items


Wardedout

Idea

Hey Just food for thought, but with all the different tools etc that I use to go along with Evernote, i would love a built-in feature to create action items.  I know I can create timers and etc on specific notes, but would love to be able to create an action item like:

Call Ted to schedule next meeting on Friday December 15th @ 9:00am and it allows you to tag that to a linked calender etc  Or have a built in button to allow you to bui;d custom to-do's etc.

My point is that with all the different CRM's / Calenders etc having a feature built in, without having to use another program or create a todo or zap to do this would be hugely beneficial

Hi.  The last (and possibly only) time we heard from Evernote on this was that it didn't want to become 'just another to-do app' - just like it isn't an email client,  a word processor or a picture editor. 

I use an external app - TickTick - for my calendar and to-do lists,  though I keep the data on projects and tasks in Evernote,  via links to the relevant notes.  I've also used Cronofy,  which links with Google Calendar.  I appreciate the wish for everything to be in one place,  but that's an impossible dream with the wide range of specialist features necessary to satisfy all users.

I use Evernote to manage my action items.  I have scripts and templates for creating notes on my Mac

You mentioned linking to a calendar, but I don't see this as always necessary.  
I probably wouldn't want "Call Ted to schedule next meeting" on my calendar

As @gazumped mentioned, there are third party products to do the calendar link.  
I use a script on my Mac for selected items.

I store the due date in the Reminder feature which gives me options for sorting and filtering.  For example, I have a shortcut to produce my current task list.

I use a tag for each project which allows me to produce a task list for project reviews
