  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. The feature looks great but I can't use it until I can set a monthly reminder or weekly reminder for each task. Thanks

  6. Happy to see external URL's supported. I want (need!) tasks to support internal note links. Action items (tasks) are so much more useful to me when I can hyperlink to supporting data I keep in Evernote.

  7. I was able to work around this, and will offer my own explanation of how to do it in case others have difficulty following the instructions already given, as I did. I'm using Evernote for Android 10.11 (1114563) with a Premium account. Problem: When I shared something to Evernote, the new item was always assigned an annoying tag left over from a prior share. Here's the solution: Share something to Evernote from your Android browser. At the bottom of the dialog that pops up, you'll see your annoying tag listed. Click it to get a full list of tags. Search for the annoying tag, which will have a green check mark next to it. Carefully tap the green check mark to unselect it. Click Save to complete the share. From then on, your default share will be set to No Tag. Note that if you ever tag an item again in the share dialog, your choice will be sticky (aka annoying) until you repeat the steps above. There does not seem to be a way to create a real default tag for sharing--it always repeats prior selections. I work around this by never choosing a tag in the share dialog. I always share to a Notebook called _Inbox and assign tags in the Evernote app before moving items to the Notebook where they belong. You could do something similar by searching on "No Tag" to ensure that each item has only one tag. That said, this is a bug and needs to be fixed.

  8. The search created:20170101 returns all notes created on or after 20170101 Use created:20170101 -created:20200101 to return notes for your date range (all notes created on or after 20170101, exclude notes created on or after 20200101)

  9. Just some general feedback here: I’m so so happy that Tasks were introduced to Evernote. I’ve avoided paying for Evernote for quite some time because I’ve long been wanting to use one tool for everything: files/collaboration/planning/journaling/notes but the one thing that was missing was task management. Now that Evernote has added it - I’m subscribing to the annual plan and so is my partner! Can’t wait to see where this feature goes!

  10. You don't mention which device you are on. If you're on the Mac or Windows apps, open the note to edit it, select the lines of text and either click on "Insert Task" from the + menu or click Cmd-T/Alt-T depending on your device type. Multiple lines of text will be instantly converted to tasks. The "Insert Task" trick should work on the web browser as well.

  11. Hello, Evernote team! I first want to say how exciting it is to see you putting so much effort into growing Evernote and streamlining it in such a way that it makes for so much more of a pleasurable experience each day. It’s extremely nice to go to Evernote in the morning, and see my scratchpad, a pinned note for all of my current to do items, and now tasks. I’ve been a long-term Things 3 user, and I’m hoping this may usurp that because my ideal is to keep everything in my busy work life in one place. I’ve been a faithful Evernote user since the very beginning, 2008, possessing 2 accounts, and I appreciate all of your hard work. (having also worked an app production myself). There are 2-3 things that I think would set Evernote above the rest, and put it over the edge in terms of being absolutely phenomenal. Wish list items I’m hoping for: 1) Markup: The ability to markup images directly using the current system, is truly lacking, not helpful, cumbersome, and not at all concise or precise. I find myself having to download an image from Evernote and open it up in Apple notes if I want to mark up an image with precision and then put it back into Evernote. The current system is lacking tremendously in comparison to almost all other image markup systems. My top wish list item would be that I could tap an image in Evernote and instead of using this very old system, which seems to be based on the old Skitch system, to be able to park up with precision and enjoyment and with a very natural feel such as can be found via Apple notes. Any chance for this to improve tremendously? 2) Now that you got me spoiled with the “scratchpad” as well as the home page, (;-)) the ability to add hand-written notes in the scratchpad, especially in terms of precision notes i.e. markup style (apple notes style) and not Skitch style, would be wonderful. Additionally, with iOS 15 forthcoming, and apples instituting the ability to create Apple notes within any app, it seems like this would be a very natural and wise progression and I would love to see it. I feel like it would be extremely helpful to your cars not to mention helpful to your faithful users. 3) I greatly missed the Apple Watch app version. It was so wonderful. Apple notes doesn’t even offer itself on it, and Evernote was my go to. I know you’re working on it and it’s on your to do list. I’m looking forward to it immensely. Thank you for hearing my thoughts, it’s an honor to be part of the beta team and I’m enjoying what you’re doing with tasks. Things are moving along nicely, and thank you again for such hard work and what appears to be such devotion. David R.

  12. @estevancarlos also keep in mind, this is an early access first release. As such, I think it is a pretty good initial effort and I expect there will be many updates to come. For years I have bounced between Evernote and Todoist for task management. For work use I will likely stay with Todoist due to its Outlook integration. For home use, tasks is already good enough for me to start migrating over.

  13. This was requested by several beta users and is on our list of features to look into once we're done with the initial Tasks launch. Thanks for the +1 on this. 🙂

  14. 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.

  15. Please restore sort by tag. Been a premium user since nearly the beginning I know many use Evernote along with a GTD system. Sort by tag within a notebook is a must for most of these systems.

  17. How do I get rid of TASKS? It's driving me barmy! I gave it a go but I already have a very satisfactory system of task organisation in Evernote. This doesn't match it. I'm prepared to try again when it's more developed but in the meantime I don't want to keep seeing it. I don't want to have to specify whether I want a new Note or a new Task each time. I can't see any way of deleting it. Surely I have a choice?

  18. 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?

  20. Hey everyone - most of you probably already knew this, but I just found out - the real Evernote client is still available! It is now called "Evernote Legacy", and it is the app we all love, useful for power users (which version 10 is not), utilizing screen real estate well (version 10 is wasting screen space like few other apps), it lacks all the stupid UI changes of version 10, and above all it does not have all the very serious bugs that still remains in version 10 after I-dont-know-how-many releases. If I had known the real client is still available it would have saved me a lot of frustration over the last weeks. Please, Evernote, keep "Evernote Legacy" available. I will happily continue to pay for the premium service and recommend it to my friends. Please don't make the fancy-designer-without-any-clue-on-how-people-use-the-tool-made version 10 mandatory.

  21. I've been an Evernote user since 2011. (I've been an Evernote Premium user for all or most of that time.) I use Evernote on three devices: a Mac, an iPad, an iPhone. I never use them at the same time; I use them sequentially, going from my laptop to my iPad or iPhone and then back again. Lately — I think I mean "for months", but I'm not really sure when this started — I've been getting note conflicts pretty consistently. I don't really understand that. While some of my older notes have images and PDFs, everything I do these days is text, or lightly formatted text. I don't understand how text files can take long to sync. I don't understand why Evernote can't sync when I open the app and before I start modifying a note. I don't understand why Evernote can't sync a particular note just as I begin editing. (I'm always, always connected to the Internet.) On Saturday I hit a conflict again. I was frustrated enough to submit a support ticket. Indeed, I was frustrated enough to start researching Evernote replacements after I submitted that ticket. Dealing with support has increased my frustration. I sent an Activity Log with my ticket. I was told that, from the log, they could tell that I was using an older version of Evernote, and that I should submit another ticket if the problem happened again after updating. In fact, I wasn't using an older version. Support mis-read the log. The log started on 2 Jun. On 6 Jun I updated to the latest version. On 12 Jun I hit yet another conflict and submitted the ticket. Why do I have to explain to support how to read their logs? I pointed out the error. Their reply didn't acknowledge the error. Instead their reply just felt like (another) canned response. It started by explaining what a conflict was — yes, I know that — and said, among other things: No, I don't want to be able to edit a note on different devices at the "same time." Sequentially. I was very, very clear about that. The only reason I use Evernote is to have notes that I can edit from multiple devices. Lots of apps seem to be able to handle that without user intervention (or, at least, without frequent user intervention). Indeed, *Evernote* used to be able to handle that without user intervention. At least, it did for me. But if manual syncing is the solution: Why is it buried in iOS? (Hamburger menu -> Gear icon -> Sync menu item -> Sync button) ***And why the hell was the sync button removed from the Mac app?*** Why is support, the people who should know the product better than I do, telling me to manually sync when that isn't even an option? Lately Evernote has been pushing "Tasks". And I'm sitting here thinking: why are you pushing new features when there are problems with the core functionality of the existing app? (I've read many, many other reports of people with frustrating sync issues. Some have reported conflicts after editing a note on a single device? Crazy if true.) I used to use WebClipper. I stopped because I frequently discovered it chewing up 100% CPU. That was on two different computers. The problem seemed to happen when the machines came out of sleep. I reported the problem but never got a response. So I just stopped using the feature. Grrr. I'm venting, I know. But I'm curious: is what I'm experiencing unusual? Or is it common? I'm trying to figure out whether or not, after 10 years, it's time to give up. To my mind there's no point sticking with a note taking app that can't sync notes pretty reliably. The responses I'm getting from support — no real effort to understand what's *actually* happening, if there's a fixable cause — makes me feel like "pretty reliably" isn't in the cards.

  22. More detail of what exactly you are doing would be helpful. Your post says literally that if you just copy a cell (how?) a new note is created. Is this really what you meant? The only think I can think of is that you are using the alt-ctrl-V global shortcut which will create a new note from the contents of the clipboard wherever you are in Windows. This shortcut can be changed or disabled in the shortcut menu (ctrl-/ or help -> keyboard shorcuts).

  26. The discussion on this among users and with EN staff is ongoing. I flag the post for you. Personally I think tasks done should be kept with all details , in some sort of archive not visible unless you open it. In some organizations this may even be necessary, for compliance reasons (business use case). @Scott T. FYI

  27. I just saw on YouTube by chance that there is a new "behind the scenes" video about the "tasks"-feature. It looks like it wasn't shared in the forum so far, but maybe it is interesting for some people here as well:

  28. Thank you, this helped clarify things. I thought you meant drag and drop within the same note. I am able to reproduce the behavior you are seeing. I checked and this matches the behavior of other items you might try to drag between notes, such as text, photos, etc. I would be hesitant to introduce a change that would be different than other items. Nonetheless, I've brought it up to our project manager to consider. If you want to move a task, for now you can either: In the tasks view, click on the task to open the task editor and click on the move icon next to the note name to change the containing note. In the editor, click the "..." next to a task to open the task editor and click on the move icon next to the note name to change the containing note. In the tasks view, drag and drop the task to another note within the tasks view

  29. I find that you have solved the need for two clicks instead of one on iPhone and iPad, at least to me as I have a premium subscription. I hope you will do the same for the desktop version. I have no need of tasks, and it is really annoying to have to click twice for a new note.

  32. 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.

  33. Thank you for your replies! It's a really minor matter, I realize. But I'll bet there's an ideas board just for widgets somewhere in the Evernote world, so I thought I would try to get it added.

  34. Check the Play Store for Android TTS readers - there's nothing in Evernote, but the app just displays text like any other browser. You might find Google Assistant can find a note and start the necessary app to read it too...

  35. I'm having performance issues as well. The main issue is: With Evernote open in the background, when switching back to a note and start typing there's often a delay/pause of 5-6 seconds before the text catches up. Makes things really awkward for quick note taking.

  36. If you think it is modest, I think you should think it over again. Tasks + Task home widget is for many users probably enough to manage their day to day, and more. When tasks in tables is added, it can even replace a simple KANBAN board for project management. Recurring reminders is another feature requested a lot. Within a few more releases EN Tasks will IMHO do 80% of what task managers do, and for many users this will get the job done already.

  37. We are a few weeks into a public trial, and you guys do as if the devs decided to stop coding and go to the beach. Tasks in tables is one of the requests mentioned in several threads. Usually EN staff is not very visible in the forum. But on tasks they were both active and responsive. So I am pretty sure they already have it on their list. I am confident we will see a number of requested features soon. Officially announced is already a Task widget for EN Home. I think others like recurring reminders, task in tables and Attachments/URLs linked to tasks will follow.

  40. I can confirm that tag search is still broken for Android client. Usually tag search works correctly for a period after the app is updated, clear all data (complete reset of app state) or post full text search. It is as if search only works against a temporary cache built up and cleared out periodically. Just got auto-updated to 10.11 through Google Play and now tag search works correctly. However I expect it to be broken again later once the temp cache expires. Can anyone else share experience doing tag search on Android?

  41. Also just here to chime in on links being better supported in tasks. Personally, I'd like to see an "attached" link as a first-class piece of data along with reminder, due date and flagging etc. I'll seldom have a task that doesn't have a link of some sort.

  46. 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.

  48. Right now it's a multistep-process to manually link two notes with each other. Coping the note link, inserting it in the other on and if necessary copy the link of the other note to link back at the initial note. With nearly 5,000 notes in Evernote it get's more and more important to build networks, otherwise a huge amount of notes never gets looked at. Maybe at the bottom of each note (where the 'context' section is) you could place a little search bar to enter other note (titles) to connect them with each other. This way it would be more easier to jump between related notes and manually add such connections instead of relying on the 'context' feature.
