Open Tasks in New Window


jvbrummett

Idea

While I'm LOVING the new Tasks feature, it's hard not being able to see my tasks at all times.  Before Evernote had Tasks I would use another app, keep it open and visible at all times, and copy Evernote content into it.  I'm constantly switching around notes in Evernote, and often pop out individual Notes that I'm working on.  I'd like to be able to pop out Tasks in a new window so that I can always see what's on my to-do list.

BTW - In the interim I'm taking a screenshot of my Tasks list, printing it, and keeping it on my desk.  Ugh.

+1 this idea.  I just moved to Evernote Tasks (I've used Evernote notes for years) and love the task -> note integration, but not having a separate task window that I can position on my desk is a big draw back.  Please add this feature.

The lack of this feature even after several months of discussion was the primary reason I cancelled my Evernote account today. It's a miss, IMO, to not add the same functionality to Tasks that are available with Notes. To suggest that we open the individual notes containing said tasks is not a realistic expectation on the user. I like that all Tasks are aggregate in Evernote, but they are hidden under a tab that I constantly have to click into to view. I need the ability to open that Task list in a new window so it can be a constant rundown of my todos. It's not encouraging as a user to see that this feature was "on our radar" back in October of 2021 and we're halfway through May of 2022 and still have no function. Tech needs to remain agile and quick to respond to UX needs, especially with the ask is valid and supported by multiple users.

I HATE the fact we just get this narrow little task window that pops out when clicking on Tasks from the menu - the text wrapping means it takes up way more height than necessary. Why not have a window that takes up the entire screen width?

Is there a way to have tasks in its own window, sort of like a note can be individually popped out?  I'd like to have an active list of tasks constantly open so I can view/add/remove.

I'm using the MacOS client.

On the Mac client there should be a tab "Tasks" in the left side panel, right between the Notes and the Notebooks tab.

It shows all tasks, has filter and sorting options. The downside: It can't be clipped away as a window, and will fold back when another view is selected. But it is readily available, always.

It does not work for you, did not meet your expectations, whatever.

Then you take the right decision and leave to another app that matches your use cases better. Why should you starve here while better pasture is around the next corner ? Nobody is asking for this, except maybe yourself.

The expectation an app with 200 Million users (that is AFAIK the last communicated figure) will within short notice react to „valid“ requests posted by „multiple“ users (about 10 in this thread) is quite obviously nonsensical. There are many „valid“ ideas that will never make it to the app, and more than 2 users is already a „multiplicity“ - but falls far off a noticeable segment of all users.

Apps of this size in general you need to take as they are, and adapt them to your use cases, or leave.

Is this still on the radar? It's been a year since you posted this reply and I've not seen any movement on it.

It's definitely still on MY radar as I wish I had this on a daily basis.  As far as from Evernote... no apparent movement.
