Roundup of Q4 updates

Recommended Posts

  • Level 5

Hi all,

2021 was a busy year at Evernote! Along with launching three big new features (Home, Tasks, and Calendar) and introducing a new lineup of subscription plans, we also released a ton of improvements and bug fixes. 

 With so much going on, it’s possible that some recent updates may have slipped by unnoticed. Here’s a recap of some of the more notable changes since our last roundup in October:

  • More background options for Home — The background images included with Home were all taken by Evernote employees, but you might prefer to see more widgets and not have a background instead. In that case, you can switch it off by clicking Customize and deselecting “Background.”
  • Updated templates for 2022 — There are more than 50 ready-to-use templates in Evernote covering work, school, and life, and now we’ve updated them so you can start planning for 2022:


  • Monthly Calendar: Keep track of special events, birthdays, and more. There are two versions, with the week starting on Sunday or Monday.



  • Annual Calendar: Stay on track with your goals, plan ahead for milestones, and remember important dates in one place.



  • Weekly Planner: Stay focused on important events and priorities, and add notes to highlight what’s critical each day.



  • Daily Planner: Add tasks, appointments, and reminders to help you be productive at work and home.



  • You can check them all out on our website, or open the template gallery from a new note to get started.


  • Increased character limit for task titles — We increased the maximum length of a task title from 300 characters to 1000, to give you room for URLs and other details.
  • Assign tasks to non-Evernote users — Now you can assign tasks to anyone with an email address, even if they’re not an Evernote customer. They’ll see their tasks on a special web page where they can mark (or unmark) them as complete, without having to create an account first.


  • Task grouping — You can now see your tasks grouped by: Assigned by me, Assigned to me, Assigned to others, and Unassigned, so it’s easier to stay on top of things.
  • If you're on the By Due Date tab in the Tasks view, tasks in each section are now sorted by due date, so it's easier to see what you need to work on first. 
  • There was a problem with Chinese or Japanese words occasionally disappearing from a note. Thankfully, that's now a thing of the past. どういたしまして!
  • We made a number of adjustments to the note editor and the calendar functionality to fix minor bugs and improve performance.

In addition to releasing updates more frequently, we’re constantly discovering more ways Evernote can be useful to you. Check out these blog posts on how Evernote can help you budget for holiday spending or finish writing your own novel.

This is just a quick summary of what’s new and improved. For a more detailed rundown, check out our archive of release notes—and make sure you’ve updated to the most recent version today for all the latest features and fixes. 

As always, feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions or comments about your experience with the latest improvements. 

Happy holidays!
