vogelap 25 Posted April 21, 2008 Share Posted April 21, 2008 ([FR] == Feature Request, by the way)I had a bad night last night. I couldn't get my mind to turn off to let me get to sleep... In an effort to get the things out of my mind and onto "trusted storage" lest I forget, I ended up with three (small) pages of handwritten notes about things going on in my professional and personal life, a couple additional notes scribbled on the back of my left hand, and two Post-It Notes with even more additional notes.The weird thing is this... My PDA/Smartphone (with Evernote 3 for Windows Mobile ("EN3WM") on it) sits right next to my bed but I didn't use it at all for my note capturing. This morning, I've been thinking about WHY I didn't use Evernote 3 instead of paper, and I think I've come up with a couple reasons...* I cannot edit an existing note in EN3WM. I've got a TO-DO list already in Evernote 3, but I cannot add/remove items from it via the EN3WM interface.* I cannot edit the state of checklist items via EN3WM (I mean adding or removing checkboxes or changing their state). I understand that, technically, this is a subset of the item above, but it bears specific mention, I think.* I don't want my TO-DO items in separate notes. I have a master TO-DO list and want to have only ONE.* It would take me several clicks to get into a note via EN3WM if the notes were editable, which interferes with the immediacy (and fleeting nature) of my late-night brainstorms -- I want as few distractions/delays as possible when capturing ideas.To that end, I've come up with a couple feature requests that I hope will be considered...* Allow editing of existing notes via EN3WM.* Allow management of checklist items (adding/removing checkboxes or changing their state) via EN3WM.* I would like to have an icon on my PDA's today screen that a> linked me directly to a specific note (in my example, viewing my master TO-DO list), and another icon on my PDA's today screen that linked me directly to the EDITOR for a specific note (in my example, editing my master TO-DO list). This way, I could refer to my TO-DO list (or any other note(s) I'd selected) or EDIT a specific note VERY QUICKLY -- while the idea is fresh in my head.I hope these Feature Requests make sense and are compelling enough that they will be considered for implementation!
