Titus 9 Posted December 28, 2014 Share Posted December 28, 2014 First things first - I understand Evernote is not meant to be a project management tool and might not be as effective as other apps such as Asana. Being so reliant on Evernote, however, I'd like to hear how other fellow users (if any) use it for such a purpose. I've tried various methods but all have been sub-optimal: 1. Setting a reminder on my To-do list notebookIt works well for easy to do, one-off tasks (e.g. buy milk) but doesn't cut it for long projects - e.g. write a white paper (and the intermediate steps/milestones that come with it). What happens is that my entire Evernote list will be cluttered with reminders and it'd be hard to keep track of them. 2. Using checkbox lists in a noteUnfortunately, I cannot set individual reminders for each checkbox (i.e. for each intermediate step to be completed) to remind myself to complete the task.Also, I am unable to monitor the tasks from an overall bird's eye view (i.e. stage/% of completion, keeping track of challenges that occur along the way). 3. Using Tables to track progressThe tables function within Evernote is pretty limited vis-à-vis MS Word. For example, I am unable to create bulleted and indented lists and background highlighted boxes, unless I do the table within Word first, then transfer over to Evernote thereafter. This defeats the purpose of using Evernote for storing all my work. Could there be a more effective workflow that you guys are already using with success? I look forward to hearing from you soon. thank you so much! Link to comment
