Send notifications using windows standard notification area/functionality


Alxa

Idea

Hi, notifications for example for reminders are only displayed within the Evernote app. If you are not at your desktop you miss it. There is no hint in "home" in tasks or anywhere about the missed notification. For this use case windows has a standard notification area for all apps on windows. My request: please fire notifications using the standard windows notification functionality so that the users can quickly check back recent and missed notifications of Evernote. Thank you.

What like this you mean:

It is already a feature which works fine for me. Sorry, I've no idea why it doesn't work for you.

I had to enable Evernote notifications in Windows settings to have them appear in the Windows. Win+i then search for notification. Scroll down and turn on Evernote.

This is a Windows issue rather than Evernote.

Thanks, I looked that up on my machine. It was already fully activated. So it seems as if implemented but not working on my Evernote installation. As notifications on mobile are not firing reliably for me neither I still go on using a real task manager for important stuff.

Sometimes it helps to toggle it off and on again.

Even as I am not using Windows often, I remember that one of these updates every half year was able to make or break nearly everything you had deliberately set up. The privacy settings always being the first victim ... "I want to call home, bäh".

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried this, too. Unfortunately I have no luck with this. Notification pop up for a short moment (they open up in "Evernote style" little window) but are not passed to windows notification system as the other windows apps do.
