    And don't get me started about needing Daylight Savings Time 😮
  2. 2 points
    @gazumped I work in international tax and I am UK based. Sometimes my client wants a call at 1600 PST, 1600 EST or 1600 CET. Hence, I want to be able to set the reminder in the client's point of view - not my own. (Very few clients are in my own timezone.) I do appreciate this is not what Evernote was designed for. Nonetheless, this is how I use it and it works wonders for me. My reminders put slots in my google calendar and the google calendar will have an Evernote note that gives me context. Maybe my use case is rare - but there it is. I like to keep context in Evernote and only use google calendar to plan my day. For every meeting in my calendar I need context and a link to Evernote gives me that context at speed. (Sometimes that context might be an advanced search in Evernote). Also the context evolves so keeping it (the context) in calendar is not as powerful as keeping it in Evernote.

    There is a way to do this using Filterize. Reading through the thread there appears to be a distinction between those who want to be reminded on a particular day (or x days before) and those who want to be reminded at a particular time in the day. I want to be reminded at a particular time of day - not just at "some time" during that day. Why? I also us Filterize's api to put Evernote reminders in my Google Calendar. This way I have a link to Evernote in my Google Calendar and that note gives me context (which for me will include minutes of the previous meeting) for any given meeting at any time of day. I do everything in Evernote: calendar, todos, notes and emails. I apply Evernote for GTD and I collect everything in Evernote. (I appreciate not everyone wants to do that but for me Evernote is my only storage and retrieval tool unless a file is bigger than 200mb.) I use ISO8601 for date and time. Hence a meeting in London on November 1 2019 at 12 noon is: 20191101T1200Z. This might not be for everyone but you can use any method you wish using filterize. Here is my action: The image above sets out the rule. Any email that I send to Evernote that contains "!reminder" will be scanned for the date and time of the desired reminder. Hence, if the email contains reminder!20191101T1800Z this shows up as an appointment in Google Calendar at 6pm on November 1, 2019 and a Evernote reminder at the same time. In Google Calendar I will have a link to evernote with the email that caused the meeting.

    I've been saying "laziness is its own reward" for some time. Even my wife agrees with that... usually...

    I love Evernote, but it's preventing me from putting in sensitive content. For example, I can't keep a personal journal notebook, because other people (i.e. girlfriend, family members, etc.) could one day be looking at those notes, especially since they know that I use Evernote often for many purposes. Evernote already has the ability to encrypt single notes. This is useful for things like storing passwords or other temporary sensitive content. But it's not practical to encrypt many notes one by one. I wish I could password-protect a whole notebook. This way, I can do a lot more with Evernote. If I can encrypt single notes, then why can't Evernote just allow me to encrypt entire notebooks? If reason behind this is because Evernote thinks one could lose a lot of data if a notebook password is forgotten, then perhaps Evernote can help recover the passwords through email. In the meantime, I'm stuck with using other apps (i.e. Pages, Day One, etc) to password-protect my content. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I don't have a burning need for this feature, but, I up-voted it anyways. My reasoning: hopefully if they ever implement this request, they will update the whole email -> Evernote gateway which is sorely in need of many, many fixes.

    Thanks for the additional detail - I understand why you'd want a reminder at 4pm someone else's time. Now that you mention it I also find the need from time to time to 'translate' a different time zone into my GMT - in my case it's usually webinars. There are already web resources that will do the job - again in my case most webinar promoters seem to have a 'what time zone are you in?' so I can get the correct UK time easily. Since cross-border connections continue to grow, maybe this is something that Evernote can consider - though there will have to be a lot more votes at the top left corner to make it happen...

    Hi. I use a two-cell table with text in the wide column to the left and comments in the narrow one to the right.

    I have an iMac and updated to macOS Catalina Version 10.15. I lost my Evernote Web Clipper for a few days but then they came out with an update to Evernote and ever since I updated I don't get the Evernote Spotlight quit unexpectedly error message anymore and my Evernote Web Clipper is back & running. My version of Evernote is 7.13 and Safari Version 13.0.2 UPDATE 11/13/19: I just received another popup about Evernote Spotlight quit unexpectedly again this morning! I was hoping the updates took care of it.

    I upgraded to Catalina yesterday, and the Evernote app will not open. I click the dock icon, the icon bounces for a while and then stops. Activity Monitor shows Evernote used 0.01 CPU seconds, and there is no current activity. Click and hold the dock icon. The popup menu says "Application not responding" and offers a Force Quit option. I've tried twice from the dock, and went to the app store and did an Open from there with the same result. I have EN version 7.13 installed, which I believe is the latest version. All other apps are working correctly, except for mSecure, which has exactly the same problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am using the web version for now.

    Evernote, come on guys, this is getting pretty rediculous and making me seriously wonder of leaving you after years. You don't seem to interact with your customers at all on this topic even though you might try to fix it. The errors are really damn annoying and nothing works to fix it. Reinstalling only works for about a couple of weeks, then it's back. How long do you wanna push this?

    I was about to dump to Excel and have a look ... and I said to myself why? Laziness is an asset from time to time.

    @CalS - not accusin', just sayin.. 😉 I also used Excel to limit the list down to 150-ish by sorting on note title and size, but it's not an exact science. I'd rather deal with dups as a maintenance issue when dealing with search hits. I never tried to clear out old notes either but in an unrelated search I just found (and deleted) a discount code from 2011 that's probably not worth a great deal now... No point to checking all my notes from that year though - I didn't start using a tag for offers until much later. 😎

    I just love when the CEO of the app that I love shows up in the user forum. This is awesome!

    Would be great to be able to adjust the Evernote application font size. That is, the font(s) that are used in the side panels, the list of notes, note cards, snippets, etc. I can make the text I type into notes as big as needed, but I still have to squint at the list view (especially with high-res displays). A global setting in the Preferences / Options would be sufficient, but even better would be some keyboard shortcuts to zoom in or out I'm a Mac user, but I believe this is a missing feature on Windows as well.

    Here's another vote. -I actually came here to figure out why Grammarly isn't working in Evernote. It seems like a no-brainer, especially when it's web-based. -In fact, now that I"m typing this, Grammarly is fixing my spelling here in this discussion box on the Evernote site. (No-brainer and web-based should both be hyphenated... good to know.).

    What specific feature are you asking about? Native Evernote can set a reminder date via email, but has no option for time
