cj02139 0 Posted May 29, 2011 Share Posted May 29, 2011 There are several ideas and implementation approaches here. I am describing what I see as two main types:1. ToDo Notes - notes which themselves are a todo list, with multiple items/lines, each with their own checkbox. such notes presumably could reside in any notebook it sould be easy to create a new checkbox item within the note (via a hot-key or format/editing icon)2. ToDo Notebooks - notebooks in which each note is a ToDo item every note created in such a notebook would automatically have a checkbox the checkbox would (optionally?) appear in at least the List View of that notebook (from which it could be checked)Now additional questions need to be addressed:a. how much of a ToDo list manager should EverNote be? This is a critical question for the EverNote organization. What is a reasonable minimum set of features? What could most easily added in the current implementation environment? What is the ROI to EverNote for the engineering effort? Will it get more (paying) customers? SW engineers cost money.b. same questions for how Search would operate on such Notes and NotebooksHere are some examples of 'extensions' to the functionality described in (1) and (2) above as related to (a):i. a 'form' or 'template' for a ToDo Note and ToDo Notebook; later customizable by the userii. addition of other fields, such as the Due Date, and in the case of ToDo Notebooks, the ability to add them as columns in the (List) displayiii. option to show/hide completed items (or possibly auto-delete completed items after 'x' days, etc)I personally would like to see ToDo Notebooks, where every Note is its own ToDo item with checkbox.I would particularly like it if the checkbox would appear in the Notebook List view where it could be checked when the item was completed (but that functionally could be added later, since I could check the box in the Note Panel). -cj Link to comment
