Using Evernote as a calendar?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm looking for a way I can store upcoming important appointments.


I thought a calendar app would be ideal for this, but then I thought it'd be great if I could use Evernote as a calendar as Evernote runs on all my devices. I was thinking of buying 'Evernote Premium', but I won't buy this if I can't use Evernote as a calendar.

I use a standard calendar application (iCloud for personal, Exchange for work). If any event in my calendar needs extensive additional notes or has files associated with it, or it is a meeting that I will require meeting notes for, I create a note in Evernote, copy the note link (I use Classic note link - hold opt- while right-clicking on a note to get "classic" note links) and I paste that in the URL of the calendar event. That way, when I check my calendar or I receive an alert for that event, I just click on the note link and it takes me to my Evernote note (which may contain, depending on the event, paperwork to be submitted; a blank note for meeting notes; a meeting agenda; a presentation; and so on).


I do the same with my to-do list application. Any list item that has some additional information or resources associated with it, I store those in Evernote and use the note link in my to-do list app.

If you're on Windows as your desktop platform, you can check out our TuskTools Calendar.  It has its own calendar interface on Windows, plus integrates with Google Calendar for all other platforms - and Outlook integration is currently in testing for release shortly.
