How to use Evernote as a calendar?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've been using a pen and paper calendar forever, but I want to replace it with an electronic calendar and use Evernote. I wanted to know if it's possible for me to put in my upcoming assignment duedates, important tests and appointments into Evernote. I want to get some kind of message notifying me that there's something important coming up.

 

Thanks for any help!

I'm pretty new to evernote so may be talking rubbish here . Depends how much you want it to be a calendar .

 

Just had a mega quick play.

 

you could set up a notebook called calendar  and then a note for each event you want to be reminded about and then add a reminder to that note

 

Not sure how much help that is or if it's overly elegant but it's do the job

When you ask a question you are more likely to get meaningful answers if you take enough time to make clear what you want, it may be obvious to you, but it may not be to others :).

 

Alright, thanks.

 

Can't I use Reminders to work like a calendar though?

 

If "work like a calendar" means showing a visual display of a calendar, no that's not possible.

 

I want to get some kind of message notifying me that there's something important coming up.

 

Again, what does this mean?  A message in Evernote?  An email message?  A message on the day something is due or at any time you predetermine?  I don't even use the reminders feature myself, but to my knowledge you can select the date you want to be reminded about something.  And in preferences you can set EN to email you the morning the item is due.  It may also pop up a reminder in EN on that day, I don't know.  You can also see a list of all your reminders in one place, whether they are due or not.  That's pretty much the limit of the functionality as far as I know.

 

If you want to show them on a calendar the only way to do that (other than manually) would be to see if there are any 3rd party apps that add EN reminders to a calendar such as Google calendar.  I've already seem mention of a few that do this, I'd Google "evernote reminders calendar"

Hmmn.  The Sunrise Calendar is surprisingly light on actual settings.  Have a look at Evernote's settings for location data - which Sunrise might have been referencing for new notes and appointments.  (In Android that's under Note Creation)

 

Edit:  Sunrise does have some useful help information here...

Just to overcharge ya'll with my 2 cents worth for a static calendar that I can fill with information that does nothing, WinCalendar is kind of neat.

For a calendar that's dynamic with Evernote, which I prefer, I use TuskTools Calendar.

Screen shot of one my WinCalendars attached.

Is your calendar a kind of view or do you actually have to use predefined masks to enter your notes? What I would like to see is a calendar where every day with a note is marked and can be klicked to see all entries of that day. So just a calendar view within evernote.

Evernote doesn't have a calendar, and seems in no great hurry to copy all the other calendar apps out there and create one. The app in this thread connects an external calendar to Evernote's reminder dates, and there's another web-based calendar which does something similar - https://calendar.sunrise.am/

I Would not start using Sunrise calendar just now, because Microsoft has announced in October, that it is going to shut down the application.

Hi.  Do you use a to-do app of any sort?  I'm currently on TickTick which has a useful calendar view,  but I'd imagine lots of other apps have something similar - I also use a Samsung Note 4 which has its own S Planner plus calendar.  There's more or less integration with Evernote,  but my entries usually include a link back to the note for more detail.  Some calendar types will integrate directly with Google,  others can probably be linked up with IFTTT or equivalent scripts.  There's a lot of personal choice and use case issues wrapped up in this,  so there's probably no all-around 'best' option,  just your personal preferred compromised between efficiency and not adding yet another new app to your device...

I tried a service called EventNoted.  It worked well; added my flagged notes as calendar items, with a link back to the notes. https://www.eventnoted.com

I'm currently manually inserting my calendar entries and adding a note link.  I didn't want to work within the limitations of the calendar interface solutions.

Hey Markus, I did not see this question since I've been absent from the forums for a while. Which predefined masks are you asking for? The the monthly calendar templates I have build are mainly meant to be the goto place for when you are looking for tasks or deadlines that you do not want to appear in your ical. The way I roll is, dates and meetings as well as events go into the ical. all tasks, project deadlines, triggers go into the evernote calendar. I had build a system last year, where you could jump from an annual overview into a monthly overview, and from there into a daily 24h calendar. that were 365(day) notes, 12(month) notes and one annual overview note. that was 2015. I decided not to do the work of changing all the day names for 366 days this year in 366 notes. tedious work. so I rather went with a system of 12 monthly overview notes. his one is for May https://www.evernote.com/l/AIgNHXPj9W9KiqOdf_LsretFYa7o-gmiyso
