  1. 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!

  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. Hello! Today we released Evernote for Mac 10.16 (v 10.16.7 build 2732). This release contains “Import folders” - a new feature for our Mac customers that lets you pair folders on your computer with notebooks in Evernote. Once set up, any file dropped or scanned into that folder will automatically create a note with the file in Evernote. Find the feature in Evernote > Preferences. Past release notes are archived here. It is available now via the Mac App 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 Mac 10.16 Import folders are now available via the Preferences menu. After setting up a folder / notebook pair, just place a file (PDF, image, etc.) into the target folder and it’ll be automatically added to your Evernote account. Stability and performance improvements. Fixed highlights: Occasionally, notes would appear to be blank and the only solution was to restart the app. This should be resolved and we will continue to monitor. We fixed an issue where the timestamp on a note wouldn't update automatically. Tasks bugfixes. Miscellaneous bug fixes. Coming soon: 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

  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.

  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. And they wonder why I am hanging on to 6.25.1 until V10 speed is fixed, or I have to move on, though I hope it doesn't come to that. Though I have already replicated all of my local notes outside of EN, just in case that day comes. The one thing that cannot be done with V10 period.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  12. Hello! I have been an Evernote user for more than a decade and I have more than 21,000 notes. I have been waiting for task management within Evernote for so long (and I have used many workarounds and integrations to achieve this), and I am really enjoying the Tasks feature so far. I would love for this to be able to replace my regular, sophisticated task manager so that Evernote could be my all-in-one. Here are a few essential functions that are needed to replace a full-fledged task manager. Apologies if some of these features have already been mentioned above, as this thread is very long already, so I didn't have a chance to read the whole thing. Multi-select and bulk editing of tasks (e.g. select multiple tasks and change the due date, complete them, flag them, or move them to a different note in bulk) Recurring tasks (already mentioned above) implemented in two ways: calendar-based recurrence and completion-based recurrence Web URLs in the name of a task need to be clickable (in the same way they are in normal note text). My present workaround is to copy and paste the web link below the task in the note, but this requires me to go into the note and scroll to the task to be able to click the link. Clicking on the note link in the task should jump to the part of the note where the task is located. Right now, the link goes to the top of the note and the user then has to scroll all the way down to find the task manually. The ability to tag individual tasks independently from the container note's tags Filtering tasks by tag on the note or tags on the task (if task-level tags are implemented) Sorting tasks, not just filtering tasks Combinations of sorting and filtering (e.g. grouping and sorting) Sub-tasks or the ability to indent tasks in lists within notes Descriptions on individual tasks (separate text box from the container note) Multiple levels of flags (e.g. priority levels or multiple colors of flags) Thank you so much in advance for considering these feature requests and apologies again if someone has already mentioned any of these above. I'm very excited about the future of Tasks, and thank you so much again for bringing us awesome new features in Evernote!

  13. 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.

  14. I completely agree. I need the individual URLs from the notes so I can go back to the source. I some cases the URL is already in the body of the note so there is no problem. However in other cases the only record of the URL is in the note URL field and as you say only one is retained. This and problems with merging notes containing images means I am currently not merging notes using V10

  15. I wonder what is the problem to extend the sort options to tags and other columns like notebooks. Because some sort options already exist. In my thinking it should be easy to extend the sort options, because the code already exist. Or is it more difficult than I think?

  16. From the help page: During Early Access, you can only assign a task to someone in your Evernote Business account. Once Tasks is officially released, you will be able to assign a task to anyone, even if they don't have an Evernote account. If they don't have an Evernote account, they will be prompted to sign up for one.

  17. 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.

  20. 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

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  26. When you merge in V10 there is the option in the merge dialogue box under advanced options to keep the original notes so you don't have to retrieve them from the trash. My preferred option would be either to create a TOC as has already been suggested or simply to tag the notes with the same tag. Clicking on the tag in sidebar (or filtering by or searching for the tag) would give you an automatic list of the notes you want grouped together.

  27. OK, I tried the following: Define an import folder Copy 204 PDF files to that folder ... have been imported to EN-10-16 within seconds ... all PDF-/files/ are available within the 204 /notes/: OK Tried to delete these 204 /notes/ ... by selecting as much as possible (50) then click Delete... ... and repeat from selecting ... This tooks some minutes for every set of 50 notes 😞. CPU is heavily loaded: So - You are right: selecting and deleting a group of notes is a nightmare. Can't imagine what is such difficult to do this. EN-Legacy does it immediately (as fast as I click). But this is not a new finding. Importing notes works great (but should offer a checkbox to immediately delete the files from import folder after import is done - as Legacy 😉). @EN-Support: My CPU did not calm down during the last 25 minutes. EN window tells me that all 204 notes have been moved to trash. ==> CPU is loaded because of sync activity in the background... - huh, so many open things to do 😞 - PLEASE get EN-10 runnning as smooth as Legacy - before offering new features (like Notes, Calendars, ...)

  31. Hello everyone--- Reaching out here in this thread to note that we’ve released a new version of Evernote (10.16) that contains the import folder feature. It’s located in a slightly new location on Windows --under “Tools > Preferences”, where it used to be located directly under the Tools menu. This version of import folder closely aligns with how the Windows version used to work, with some enhancements to both import logic (we have a few more protections in place for accidentally importing partially created files, that kind of thing) as well as additional UI that will indicate if you’re about to import a lot of files at once that could eat through a potentially limited upload limit. We’ve also made some improvements to notifications--grouping notifications for larger imports, as well as transparently notifying when we are creating a new note after you edit a retained file. A note on “remove at import” There’s one option that is still in progress here, and that’s the “Remove file” option after import. This option allowed files to be automatically removed after they were imported. We intend to reintroduce after working through some changes on the backend to properly support the option, and opted to get the feature into your hands without so you can begin working with it. A note on using import folders on Evernote 10 and Evernote Legacy If both Evernote Legacy and Evernote 10 are pointed to import from the same folder, both will attempt to import the file. In most cases, this will set up a race condition between both versions, with one application importing before the other one. Since they are built using similar logic, only one file should be imported. You will know which is successful because the notifications for Evernote Legacy Windows and Evernote 10 are different. If you are pointing to the same Evernote account, the file will eventually end up in your account either way. In general, we don’t recommend that both are run side by side. Ideally, any import folders that are previously set up on Evernote Legacy should be removed and re-added on Evernote 10. This is our initial release supporting import folder and have some ideas on where we could take it in the future. Please let us know what you think--particularly if you run into any issues setting up your new import folders.

  32. It would be great if we could see the day of the week when picking a due date. Or just use the iOS default date selector which includes day of the week and an actual calendar to look at. Much easier to choose a due date for a task from a calendar.

  36. I figured out the solution after doing some research. In the middle sidebar, right click a note, hover over “Copy Note Link” and on the keyboard hold down “alt/option”. It will change to “Copy Classic Note Link”, click that. The format should be evernote:///view/~ In Slack, at the bottom of a window, click on Hyperlink button. In "Add link” window, input some referral text, and for the Link input the Evernote Classic Note Link. You will see a pop-up “Open link to app. Check “Always open links from Evernote” and then click on “Open Link” button This should open the note within the Evernote app, not a browser. Previously when I clicked on "Copy Note Link" it would always open a link to Evernote Web in the browser, which was frustrating. PS. I'm using Evernote Legacy version on Mac.

  38. Even adding a hint of data collection for targeted ads would drive away a ton of paid users. Just the idea that EN was open to data collection for advertising would be enough to move me off the platform. While I don’t enjoy subsidizing your free account, I’d rather do that than see privacy further eroded for people who for whatever reason can’t pay.

  39. I think the problem is that many users could not get past the invitation to use Tasks because they had increased their text size in preferences and EN was not programmed to allow for large text and users could not get to the controls to move past the welcome to Tasks screens. The trick is to reduce your text size so that, when you launch Evernote, you can see the commands which allow you to get access to your notes without accepting Tasks. I’m surprised that EN has not taken into account the possibility of increased text sizes when programming the announcement of Tasks. This has lead to many users wasting a lot of time trying to access their notes.

  42. Cut and paste of tasks works, though I'll admit that the highlighting of tasks is a bit weird and can be improved. I think we'll work to make that better. To cut and paste, make sure that you see the blue box around the task(s) as you highlight them. You can copy or cut and then paste into a different note. All the metadata should get cut/copied as well. Works in both desktop and mobile, though admittedly harder to select tasks in mobile.

  43. In case anyone is interested... I've just about finished moving everything out of Evernote. I use Evernote for two things. First, for editing and syncing work notes across devices, so that I have access to them from anywhere. (I'll call those "docs" from here on, since I want to use "note" in Evernote's more generic sense.) Second, for capturing a lot of web content so that I can search for things of interest later. For docs, after some research, I looked at three possibilities: Apple's Notes, Shiny Frog's Bear, Microsoft's OneNote. (I have to say: I've never been a OneNote fan. Lots of people love it, but I've always found its user interface to be rather clunky. YMMV) All three tools have direct support for importing Evernote .enex files. (OneNote does it through a separate app that's in preview.) All three imports were pretty good, though all three had at least one quirk. For example, Bear didn't preserve strikethrough (I have one doc with a *lot* of strikethrough), while OneNote seemed to insert an additional blank line between paragraphs. Apple Notes, very surprisingly, did the best job. At least, for my content. OneNote was out of the running (for docs, that is) once I saw how well the other two did. Choosing between Bear and Notes was a tougher call. In the end, I went with Bear. First, its content is plain text and easily exported; people have come up with work arounds for exporting from Notes (some of them quite good), but, you know, they're workarounds. Unsupported. And I didn't want to trap my content. Second, for Apple, Notes is just one more little app; for Shiny Frog, Bear is everything. I trust Shiny Frog's motivation to make things right more than I do Apple's. For web content, after some research, I looked at OneNote, Pocket and Raindrop.io. I imported all of my web content into OneNote. For whatever reason, OneNote had a lot more trouble maintaining the fidelity of *those* notes. The import tool also created separate sections for every 500 notes or so. (I don't remember the actual count.) That didn't really work for me. I toyed with Pocket for a bit — I used to use it before I started using Evernote for web content — but, for reasons, I made a more serious effort with Raindrop. Starting from this code I wrote some Python to extract web content from my .enex file. I used that to create a .csv file which I then imported into Raindrop.io. It took some effort to figure out how to extract what I wanted, etc., but I've been very, very happy with the result. But before I explain... I was able to do all of this poking around with all of these tools because they all have substantial free tiers. I think OneNote might even be completely free at this point? Not sure. Bear lets you do everything except sync for free. Raindrop.io lets you do a lot — including importing many, many thousands of links — for free too. So: I was able to feel reasonably confident that I could do what I wanted to do before I put any money on the table. Once I was reasonably confident, I paid. At that point, Raindrop's extra features kicked in. First, it creates a snapshot of all of your bookmarked pages, so that you'll still have the content if the site or page disappears. (That's why I only needed the URLs from the .enex file.) Second, it uses those snapshots to create a full text index, so that you can search based on what pages contain, not just their titles. (That's a big part of why I had put web content in Evernote in the first place.) Third, Raindrop let me know which URLs were broken — so I knew exactly what I was in danger of losing. Fourth, Raindrop let me know which URLs were duplicates; I was able to declutter a bit. Fifth, Raindrop does a daily backup to a Dropbox folder; I don't have to worry about losing these thousands and thousands of links if the company disappears. On the other hand, Raindrop doesn't work disconnected. For me, that's not a problem; I never synced my web content in Evernote either, because it was just way too big. All told, I expect to lose about ~650 "web content" notes or so in this process. They are almost entirely (~620) things that I captured in Gmail. (At one point WebClipper had special support for capturing content directly from Gmail.) I was able to categorize everything in Python, so I know exactly what I'll lose: almost all of the notes (~590) are from a paid business/technical newsletter that I used to subscribe to. Not really much of a loss; the content is quite dated now — and it's all in email anyway. So that's the story so far. I have ~60 web content notes left to look at, and then I'm done. (For whatever reason — I haven't looked at them yet, so I don't know why — they didn't fall into my automated buckets.) P.S. Once I subscribed to Bear and could sync, my hundreds of docs showed up on my other devices within a few seconds of launching the app. That's why I don't really understand why Evernote is struggling. Some of my older docs have lots of images, but my newer ones are just lightly formatted text. Bear was able to sync everything, old and new, in seconds; my ongoing changes are a tiny fraction of that.

  44. 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.

  47. 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?
