  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. This was the top request in the beta for Tasks. We're definitely looking at the right way to implement it.

  8. 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

  9. @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.

  10. The past couple of weeks have seen me make a major transition. All of my interaction with Evernote (except for printing) is now through the new Windows 10 app (or via the Web client when I'm booted into Linux). Sure, there are still a few little glitches, like being able to copy images from one note to another, and the fact that I cannot select an image from Evernote and copy it into an editor like IrvanView ... but I'm sure that will all be sorted. The only time I use the Windows Legacy app is for printing notes to PDF to share with those I have not yet convinced to sign up for Evernote. Legacy still does a beautiful job with it; the new version just doesn't work (not from the app nor from the Web). (There is some sort of scroll-bar image that appears on the right of all pages, not all of the note is printed, and page breaks cut off text lines in the middle, rendering them unreadable in many cases.) But I had a 45-minute online session with one of the Evernote product managers, so I know they know about the problem, and I'm sure they're working on it. It has taken me a while, but I have to admit that Evernote is heading in the right direction, and I should say so, instead of just posting complaints.

  13. WOW! I must admit i was a bit ambivalent about "Tasks" but after only two days experimenting with it it has transformed my entire workflow. I have been an Everote user since 2011 and must say that the changes mad over the past 18mths have made it more and more productive to the extent I would struggle with it.

  14. It would be great to be able to copy note links in tasks. A work around is to separate the tasks into different notes and then have note links. But when keeping a list of tasks in one note (i.e. Things To Do) would be preferable.

  16. Good start with the Tasks implementation! Now we can go wild... Currently, I do a sort of Kanban by myself by having one note per task, setting Reminders, and storing all these Task/Notes in a single notebook. I can see that now that we have the Tasks feature, it would be great if we could view the Tasks in a visual layout with Columns like Future, Due This Week, Due Today, Past Due, Done or something similar, maybe columns could be user defined with a user selectable filter and sort criteria. For my use of Kanban, generally the Task Name is just the header. When I was using LeanKit Kanban and Evernote together, I would place a Link to a corresponding Evernote Note in each Kanban Item (Card). I would use Evernote to save progress reports and reference data or even a Checklist of items or sub-tasks needed to complete a Kanban Item (Card). I would also use Evernote to save a kind of history or running log for recurring Cards. I have really liked the merging of my Kanban system into Evernote and all I miss at this point is the visual layout with drag and drop. I've tried the Kanbanote product and find that it is very limited by screen size and the inability to scroll the visual view. A nice feature of Leankit Kanban is the ability to drag and drop within a column to control order. In my Evernote system, I use Reminder Time to control the order Today's items show up at the top of my Kanban Item Notebook. The ability to over-ride the Time sort, especially in the "Today" or "Doing" column would be a nice feature for a Kanban view in Evernote Tasks. Is there anyone else thinking along these lines? --John

  17. @Max013Thanks for sharing. We are very aware of this problem and have some solutions in the works.

  18. 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.

  19. 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. It would be nice if we could manually reorder tasks on iOS within a note. Using drag and drop.

  21. The new note/task menu is putting extra steps between me and creating new notes. Previously, you could just click new note and your away, now you have to click the "+ New" button and then re-click it to get a new note. This is primarily my note taking application, not task management. At the very least having it immediately display on mouse over would be an improvement. Windows: 10.15.6 (2680)

  22. i would like a secure note section that needs password access (windows), or iphone face id . ..maybe 2fa ... i want it secured with AES-256, timeout set can 5 min... or 10 min... so it autolocks the note... I like to keep secure notepad.... during the day to have i need to store senstive password data... Good UI.. encrypt decrypting a part of note is cumbersome. I rather have a dedicated sections. for soemthing i use frequently.

  24. 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.

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  29. I do not agree with this assessment. I think EN is getting better and I’m happy with the progress so far. As said above bugs will happen and anyone who uses software understands that. Tasks is still of great value to me. I’m excited about the current and future direction of EN. No I don’t work for them. Haha. If you don’t agree simply use a different app.

  30. I'd like to be able to set the default view I want for the tasks tray (what I see when I click Tasks in the menu sidebar). Specifically, I'd like to change the default view to be "by due date" vs "by note".

  31. 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?

  33. I agree - we should use the current „public trial“ to ask for the missing functions that would help us to go for EN as GTD control center in addition to be 2nd brain. Using 2 tools is always adding complexity and manual coordination effort - this is why I completely skipped the old reminders for Things 3. But separating the universal inbox from control isn’t good, either. My ideas are more flags (10-15) to switch between GTD categories - flags usable as a filter task tagging to assign projects or people Recurring dates, recurring „xx time after last completed“ Watch App to run specified lists like Now, waiting and errands down without the full app

  34. Liked the Behind the Scenes thing they just did on Tasks on YouTube. Sounds like this is a high priority for EN and I’m glad to hear it. Would love to not use an outside task manager and for me this is almost there. I will dump Things 3 if a couple more pieces are added. (Recurring and Snooze). Recurring based on completed date would be awesome but not being picky here. This functionality is “sticky” as well meaning it will glue users to the platform.

  35. You're right, but I thought it couldn't hurt to post about it, since the leadership is completely different since then. I really think they alienate many "low usage" users that want more than basic, but don't need Premium, so they just don't sign up.

  36. Hi, i tried to use the new Tasks menu. It's a great feature and I was waiting it for a very long time. Good job for finally developing it! It opens a lot of possibility now for tasks and project management! But there are still missing a few features that would be very essential to my workflow and that would make it a solid task and project management tool that could compete with Asana, Todoist, etc. Here it is: - Add the possibility to write a description in each task. Every task management app offers the possibility to write a task description to a specific task. Very useful when we need to write complementary info, details, phone number and so much more. Just having the possibility to write a task title is not enough... - Add to possibility to create a sub-task within the task. Very useful when we have to deal with a huge task that needs to be cut out in short bits. Example: Call all my customers for follow up Call bob Call Jim Call Suzy Call Robert Because we don't have the subtask functionality right now, I would need to create 4 different tasks. But in some case this is very essential to regroup tasks within a tasks. - Give us the possibility to create customized due date. As of now we have "Today", "Tomorrow", "Next monday", "Next week". For my workflow, I would need to create customized due dates such as "3 months", 6 months", "10 days", etc. So you could add a button "Create a customized due date button". - Add the possibility to assign a specific task to another Evernote user. In the context of team work, it would be huge for project management!! I could create a Task Notes with the name of my project (ex: Create new website). Than, I could write all the tasks that needs to be done within that project. And I could also assign certain tasks of the project to my team members with who I shared the projet notes. If you add theses features, it would be a top tool that could easily remplace Asana, Todoist... Thanks for considering it!

  37. The current display of the Tasks List, when sorted by note, is hard to read because it is cluttered with the grayed-out "Add new task" entries. This both forces a note with no actual tasks to show in the list, and also adds the line for the non-existent task. Can force many more notes than you see when sorted by Due Date. This makes the list hard to scan, so it would be great to remove those, or else make it an option to hide them. Thanks!

  38. This seems to be a recent issue specifically with Chrome. I've had this same error for at least a week (maybe 2?) but only via the Chrome browser. I'm able to access Evernote Web via Edge and Firefox using the same URL, username & password. If this was a device limit issue, the site (or app) would give the option to "unsync a device" (or upgrade). This specific error only provides the option to reload, which goes right back to the same error every time. As a workaround (although I prefer web view in Chrome) I've installed the Evernote Windows app (https://evernote.com/download) and have been able to access notes there. Once the issue is resolved, I'll just "uncync" the Windows app and go back to my usual Chrome tab.

  44. Hi Alan, Nobody here is going to offer you the 100% assurance you seek. We're all fellow travellers sharing the insights that we have. Especially when installing an application from an apk you are stepping out from the normal mode of operation. I fer you have to take some risk. The worst that can happen is that you fid that v8 fails to work and you uninstall and then reinstall v10. All I would say is that the advice provide by others is what you can expect. It will almost certainly do what you need. Personally, I'm running Evernote 10 on a OnePlus 8 and it works just fine but clearly YMMV and apparently does.

  47. 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

  48. Hi! Very interesting feature. I am wondering, will we be able to put tags in every task? Thanks!
    2 points
  49. 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.
