poepping 0 Posted March 12, 2009 Share Posted March 12, 2009 I would like to be able to mark an item for "review" or "deletion" after a certain amount of time. use case 1 : a todo list. In a month, the stuff on the list is completely useless, and only confuses searching. when creating the list, set the retention to 1 month, and at the end of the month, move it to a "to delete' folder, which can be manually, or automatically cleaned up.use case 2: a daily action. If every day you write down a word of a day from somewhere, that note should be able to pop up a reminder telling you to update that note.use case 3: you call someone and take a note of the conversation, but need to call back at a later date to gather further information on a subject. You attach the date on the current note, and at that time, the reminder will pop up telling you to review your data.use case 4: you place a X month timer on all data, and have the data reviewed every X months to make sure it is still valid and relevant. This would allow you to purge useless data, and also update notes with more current information if something had changed.There is too much data out there that is completely worthless (probably about 99% of it) this feature would help keep on top of the pile of data to make sure you only have relevant data and you don't up just lugging around ***** that slows down searching for relevant information.Also when I say that evernote should pop-up something to remind you, this would probably be better if it went to a folder of notes that needed attention, as I have evernote running on 3 different device, and I don't need pop-ups on just one (missing it), or pop-up on all of them (annoying) Link to comment
