  1. A Home widget for tasks is coming soon. Currently, you can pin a note that has tasks in it and it'll render the tasks on the Home page, but it won't be interactive.

  2. Hi all, Great news! We’re giving everyone early access to our newest feature: Tasks, starting to roll out now and available over the coming weeks on the latest versions of Evernote for desktop, web, and mobile. We believe that the information you keep in Evernote can work harder to help you achieve your goals. Tasks helps make this happen by allowing you to seamlessly connect your to-dos with the information you need to get them done: Manage tasks from a central view or from inside your notes. Changes made in one place automatically show up in the other. Connect your tasks to related information in your notes, including web clips, images, documents, and audio files. Unlike standard checklists, you can set due dates, reminders, and flags on each of your tasks—so nothing falls through the cracks. This forum gives you a place to ask questions and chat with others about Tasks. Feel free to start a thread or reach out to me directly. Please keep in mind: You'll get all features within Tasks during the Early Access period. But certain features will be limited to specific Evernote plans when Tasks is officially released. Tasks is only available on our new apps and cannot be accessed on legacy clients. But if you’re not ready to make the switch to the new Evernote, you can still try Tasks by installing the latest version of Evernote for Mac or Windows side-by-side with one of our legacy apps. To learn more about how Tasks helps you move beyond remembering to accomplish more, check out this blog post from CEO Ian Small. Thanks for trying out Tasks. We’re excited for all the ways it’ll help you stay on top of your day-to-day. Take care, Shane

  3. It would be great to be able to add subtasks under a task... since they display similar to a bullet item or check list item, it kept feeling like I should be able to indent the task so that it falls under another one. It would also be great to be able to fill out a few tasks so that they are cascading where completing one makes the next one in the list now ready to do.

  4. Hi All, I wanted to let you know that in the latest version of Evernote, you no longer need perfect punctuation to find what you’re looking for. For example, “R.S.V.P” can be found by searching “rsvp” and “mother-in-law” can be found by searching “motherinlaw” or even just “inlaw”. See below for more examples. Watch this video to see this search update in action. As always, feel free to start a thread if you have feedback, or reach out to me directly if you have any questions. Thanks! Shane D.

  5. Wow, thanks for Tasks! This is a really nice and useful feature. Nevertheless, a few requests: - Connect tasks to Google Calendar and other agendas for both due and notification date/time. - Allow for formatting text and including (internal) links into task text. - Add a location field to tasks (connected to Google Maps). Trigger a notification when reaching the location and time. - Add task hierarchies. - Add recurring tasks. - Filter tasks by tags (of their containing note) and allow for saving filters. For example, filter for only work or home related tasks or a certain project. - Delay tasks and move unfinished tasks to today or tomorrow. Cheers. André

  6. Love this!! Just a couple of pieces of functionality and I will dump my task manager. I think EN did a great job of this in the first iteration though. I hope full functionality will be available for Premium users. need to be able to snooze tasks not just reschedule reminders or add multiple reminders true recurring tasks: keeps a record that you completed the task this week for example and puts another task to be completed in next week. Show date and time task completed. move the tasks section above shortcuts in the sidebar would love to be able to tag tasks too. for me not critical though EN is becoming indispensable for me again and I welcome it!

  7. I follow threads on here, having been an EN user since 2013, most of that time as premium. The last few months have been challenging with changes made not always effective, but the naysaying and doom-mongering is wearing. Despite changes and lags the data has been rock-solid. Every change is adding or backfilling features. The web version is immeasurably improved, the IOS version (on iPhone) is now as fast as before and better laid out. The Windows version has got better, though still not quite as good as Legacy. The thing we are seeing is incremental progress from a scorched earth rebuild. I have been frustrated by some of the changes, but overall kudos to EN, Ian Small and the developers for taking a brave step and implementing it. I fully expect more improvements to come based on evidence of updates in the last 12 months.

  8. Can you please also add a way to link to another note from a task? I can foresee that being very useful, i.e. the task might properly live in one note but there could be relevant context for the task in another note. Putting a link right in the task would make it very quick and easy to access both notes when one goes to work on the task in the future.

  11. Hello, I'm a person that follows GTD and has been using Omnifocus and before it Todoist, so I know that I come from a very complicated place that Evernote is not trying to replace. With the addition of Tasks you are bringing context to those To-Dos and that it a good thing, but people will only have a task manager and so there is a need to evolve tasks more than just context of the action, you have to incorporate more that allows us to replace our current task managers. Flagged is like starred and it's a good thing. Projects (in GTD) can be the note that incorporates it. Tags is one of the missing things here and there are two ways to go about it: Show me the tags that the original note has, and I will change tags depending on the active action, but this does not help with different tasks that live on the same note. Or for tasks, there should be a new tag field, perhaps #home or !work that work on the line level. These tags should be autocomplete and be able to be filtered (even Microsoft To-Do has this). Indent - I'm a bit skeptical about this because I can see it should be obvious when looking at a note that I should be able to nest the task at least one level. But it would add complexity for something that I'm not sure is worth the trouble. Recurring - this is a must have to be able to replace current task managers. Templates - the current use of templates could be expanded to add templates for tasks (like routines daily). As it currently stands it cannot replace my task manager but I would love to be able to do so.

  12. Great news ! Two things would make it fly for me: iOS widget or an entry to the icon drop down menu, to be able to drop a quick reminder without a need to ramp up the app Apple Watch app, with the possibility of set a quick note / quick reminder gadget as complication on the watch face

  13. I strongly stand behind the EN team. I deeply appreciate the effort required to build things ground up when the legacy is already rocking it. Demonstrates vision, courage, leadership and long term commitment to users. The team has been working through the pandemic and delivering the goods. I can find lots of reasons to be dissatisfied but I choose to focus on the EXTRAORDINARY effort of the team. way to go TEAM. And Ian superlative leadership.

  14. (Update 2 - we've pushed a patch for 10.14 (10.14.7) to resolve a service related issue.) (Update - there was an issue with our initial release and the quick switcher shortcut was not working. We've pushed an update for this same release that should address the issue. If you have downloaded this update already and the shortcut is not working for you, please see this thread for a fix.) Hello! Today we released Evernote for Windows 10.14 (v 10.14.6 build 2651). This release brings an improvement to search with a new quick "switch to" option to Windows. Hit CTRL-Q to quickly pull up a search box to switch right to your preferred note or notebook. A top requested feature, it is now available on Evernote Windows for the first time. Past release notes are archived here. It is available now via the Windows Store and as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running one of these versions, we are progressively rolling out to compatible devices and the new version will be available on all supported operating systems within 7 days. To learn how Evernote delivers app updates, when you’re eligible for an update, and how to update your Evernote app, visit How Evernote delivers app updates to our customers. New to Windows 10.14 We added a new keyboard shortcut! Quickly search or switch to a note, notebook, or tag by pressing Ctrl-Q on Windows. Evernote for Windows will now open a little faster thanks to some performance improvements. Fixed highlights: If you selected multiple notes but the first one was blank, the app would sometimes forget your selection. The app would sometimes have trouble importing a lot of .enex files at once. When the Evernote app is minimized, the keyboard shortcut for new note windows now only opens a note window instead of the whole app. Coming soon: Quickly search and move to different note using a keyboard shortcut (Mac - CMD+J, Windows - Ctrl+Q) Dragging and dropping note links and tags directly into your note Additional export options (in progress - HTML and export options released in 10.13) Import folder Duplicate more than one note at a time Filtered notes widget for Home

  15. Feature Request: Add Outlining Capabilities to Evernote Evernote is great, but it's dying for the ability to create Notes that contain Outlines which are easily collapsed and expanded during creation and in use. One way to implement it would be a switchable editing mode, between standard formatting or outline mode. In outline mode, pressing the Enter key creates a new outline item, and pressing the Tab key changes the current item into a sub-item. Clicking on an item's action icon causes its sub-items to collapse out of, or expand into view. That's the way the Ecco Pro PIM did it, and something simple like that would be a good start for Evernote. The name Evernote implies a product that takes notes -and collapsible/expandable outlines are a huge part of note taking.

  17. If you have a URL in the task title itself, that should get linked in the Tasks view (Tasks link in the navigation bar). We should have that feature working in the editor in the near future. We're also exploring better ways to incorporate links so you don't have to use the link text itself.

  19. Hi all, I am very excited to announce that Cmd-J on Mac and Ctrl-Q on Windows are back! You can now quickly switch to the content you want (a note, notebook, or tag) or search by using these keyboard shortcuts in the new Evernote for Desktop. For those of you who used this feature before in older versions of Evernote for Mac and Windows and have been waiting for its return, thank you for your patience. As always, feel free to start a thread if you have feedback, or you can reach out to me directly if you have any other questions. Thanks! Shane D.

  20. Create a two way sync of tasks with google calendar. So if you plan a meeting in your 'evernote calendar' within google it will show up as a task with that date and time as the deadline. And vice versa if you add a task with a specific time make it show up in your calendar.

  21. The new Tasks feature looks amazing. Calendaring, and flagging is great. The task rollup view is fantastic! BUT it's missing a critical piece for viability. Hierarchy. Big tasks are most easily accomplished when you break them down into sub tasks (like the SMART method). You need to be able to nest tasks to most effectively accomplish your goals.

  22. You can hide finished tasks in the task overview but not within a note. For single projects this is not a problem but for my general task lists this could become a huge note over time so please make it possible to hide finished tasks within the note aswell.

  26. iOS: If you are stuck on the page announcing tasks, maybe the button is hidden because you have set a larger text to your device. Go to the iPhones settings, screen& brightness or accessibility, and reduce the screen text size. In some languages this is not enough - there you need to set system language to English, then proceed. All changes can be reversed once the greetings screen is confirmed.

  27. Tasks are great - and I appreciate its early days. Three requests though 1. Parent and child tasks would be great since some tasks may have multiple tasks 2. Great if you could insert tasks into Evernote tables - since that currently is where our business creates templates from, for the team. And track conversations. 3. Great when you hit the task, it takes you not just to the note, but where you inserted the task request within the note, important if note is long and complex thanks W

  28. On ios I am now unable to access my notes. I am unable to get passed the 'Try it free for early access' page. I can go to the terms of service page, but there is nowhere to accept them. Clicking done takes me back to the page that says try it free. Also there is no option to not try it. wtf do I need to do?

  29. Hi I have a few quick comments (I am on MAC OS) First - great work. The implementation is excellent and has lots of potential. Can you provide the option to hide notes that have completed tasks? For example - I have a single note with the task: * follow up on this with Bob. Once I've completed the task, I no longer need to see the note, or the task in the task list. Currently, all I can do is make the task go to the bottom. Is there a way to make the "add new task" option take up less space? The vertical list of tasks in the task window is rather spread out. In evernote webclipper could I assign a task to a web clipping. For example - I clip an email and put on it a task - follow up with bob on this email. Currently I have to clip the email, then go to evernote and assign a task. Any options for different colored flags? So we could flag for priority etc? When I click on a task it brings up the note. Could it be possible to keep the task list in the middle column and show the note in the right hand column? Currently, the task list goes away and is replaced by the note. If I am working through tasks doing a quick review it would be nice to click on each task and see the note without losing the task list. This would be very annoying for a very long task list. Anyhow - just a few suggestions from someone who's been using EN since 2008!

  30. Will you be able to tag Tasks? Or better yet have Tasks inherited the tags of the notes they are in. I would like to be able to look at the Tasks view and see the note's name, notebook (which is there today) and tags associated with any given task. Today you can filter by "Located In" a Stack, a Notebook or a Note. I like how it limits the filter to just the items that have Tasks. Adding tags to the filter by would be helpful too. The Find Tasks function doesn't seem to find stacks, notebooks

  31. Great feature so far! Is it possible to display 'Tasks' above 'Favorites' (Shortcuts) in the left sidebar? Because I have over 100+ Shortcuts and so you can imagine, that it always takes around 5-10 seconds to scroll down to 'Tasks'... Of course it would be best, if you can decide for yourself in which order the different areas are displayed in the left sidebar... because I have the same problem with 'All Notes' -> It also always takes 5-10 seconds to scroll down to the button (Notes) below the shortcuts. And you always have to keep in mind that 'Notes' & now also 'Tasks' is ALWAYS only ONE button and it actually makes more sense if these two buttons are above 'Shortcuts', because their number doesn't change, while the number of 'Shortcuts' can vary greatly for each user. A user with, say, 5 shortcuts will not find this annoying, while a user (like me) will often find it annoying to have to scroll down 100+ shortcuts each time to get to 'All Notes' and now also to 'Tasks'. That's why the ability to set the order of the areas (Home, Shortcuts, Tasks, Notes, Notesbooks, Tags, Shared, etc.) would be a huge step forward in Evernote (because some users also want to have, let’s say, 'Tags' displayed above 'Shortcuts', for example...). But the first impression of 'Tasks' is definitely positive and I think, I'm not the only one who is happy about the positive development of Evernote! (I published the same post 30 minutes ago, but apparently it disappeared... It had 2 or 3 likes by then, so it seems there is resonance with the improvement of setting the order of the areas for yourself!)

  32. This should be a no brainer and is amply discussed in the forum as a how-to since it was removed. It used to be possible to sort notes by tags. The logic would be that tags are sorted consistently anyway, so sorting for them enables using Evernote with tags for GTD, which used to be a hugely popular and highly productive option. There are websites and blogs galore, teaching people how to do this efficiently. Sorting for date created or edited makes Evernote treat notes like documents, at that point I might as well use Word documents - no reason to pay then. Might even bring it as a paid feature if it's too tricky to maintain.

  33. This thread is absurd. Tasks is just out and people are responding to it as if it should match todoist. A UI overhaul? Come on. Tasks will suit some, it wont others, as is the case with most features but to complain that it isnt as good as sole apps that have been running for years is completely unreasonable.

  34. The one thing that would cause me to upgrade my Evernote membership and eliminate my current task manager would be to create Evernote tasks via Siri on my iPhone. The ability to get a thought out of my head and into the place where I will make further process decisions is essential to me. The fact that Siri was removed from the new Evernote is keeping me from putting all my chips in. Whether I’m in the car, waiting for an appointment, or stuck at a traffic light. I want to quickly press a button and get the thought out of my head so that it can be added into my work routine without being forgotten.

  38. I've been using evernote for a decade. This is one of the best features. I hope it becomes something officially adopted by evernote, as it takes a big portion of project management out of the decision making for the user. That's not to say one should be lazier in PM, but it's a great feature. Please keep it!

  44. this worked for me.... In the effort of isolating this issue, please rebuild your Evernote app by following the instructions below: Open Finder From the menu bar select Go > Go To Folder... Paste ~/Library/Application Support/ and press Go. If you don't find this directory, try ~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/Application Support/ and press Go Delete the folder Evernote Launch Evernote and sign in.

I did understand you correctly the first time - (you are a very clear communicator!) but its always nice to have visuals to make 100% sure since thing can get lost in translation so I appreciate the extra effort you went through with the screenshots and the video to share another use case. @Mike P Thank you for sharing your use case as well. Please know we are actively thinking through this feedback as these are all great points. We love your passion for Evernote and want to help you work efficiently. There is definitely trickiness to designing the UI to accommodate a diverse set of user preferences but we agree we can do better here. Thank you again for the feedback.

  47. And your post was 18 days ago. Still no fix. Is Evernote trying to self-destruct and/or be sold at lowest possible value? And no follow-up from staff here or anywhere else? Maybe they see the writing on the wall, too. I don't get it otherwise. For fun, I scanned through all of the recent Google Play reviews and I couldn't find a single positive review out of dozens, perhaps hundreds, of them. Even the worst of apps usually have some positive reviews lol. It is truly breathtaking to watch unfold. Thanks for this.

  48. I sent this support ticket today. Maybe if we all make some noise it will get someone's attention... You've removed the ability to sort by tag in the latest releases of EN. This ability was a key reason for thousands of customers implementing a Getting-Things-Done (GTD) scheme to use EN to begin with. Looking on your forums, there are many folks upset over this issue and I see no support or response from you. I've been a premium user for about 8 years but I'm getting ready to say goodbye due to you NOT LISTENING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS. Please let me know either: - When you will restore the functionality that you removed, or - That you have decided to never restore the functionality. If it's the latter, then I will look for an alternative to EN before my subscription renews. I could not be more angry with you over this, not only because of the technical lack of the function itself, but because it conveys an attitude that says you know better than me how I want to work with my information. It's arrogant. I could not care less about what new bloat ***** you want to plop on the home screen and tell me it's a new feature, but do not take core functionality away. I believe I probably speak for thousands of users on this. Are you smart enough to do something about it?

  49. For over 10 years that I have been using Evernote I have loved that you could come back fast to the notebook and note you were previously working on when opening the app. SInce the last update to v.10.8.2 you have decided that we want to start in Home when we open the app without asking us and even worst, without letting use choose if we wanted this change. Please give us the option to start the app in the latest notebook used as it has been since the start. Many of us do not use or want to use your new Home page. If you have decided to invest resources in things like Home that the vast majority of your user base didn't ask for it is your own (wrong) decision, but please don't try to shoehorn things like this into our workflow, the only thing you do is alienate your user base. It's puzzling how you dedicate resources to things like Home instead of working in really useful features like e.g., a way to create an in-note table of contents with internal note hyperlinks, something your user base have been screaming for almost since day 1 and that your competition offer years ago.
