  1. Yes, I sort by the 15 tag for all items I have already determined I need to review or work on that day, just like an electronic trace file. So for example, I have created Saved Searches for when I need to meet with my boss, Ashley. They are for the tag Ashley and the tag of the date that we are to have our next 1:1. When we meet, I take my iPad with me and click on the the Saved Search Ashley 15 and in front of me is all the things I need to talk to him about (yes, Ashley is a he). I make notes directly in the Note of whatever particular Notebook that project or event is that I'm working on. I don't then have to transfer any handwritten notes Evernote. This system has been a lifesaver for me. The great thing about Evernote is you can set it up to work the way your brain does vs retraining your brain to a new system. I like to keep things simple so I don't want my Tasks on my calendar, besides I have way too many. The use of two screens has allowed me to constantly have in front of me, Outlook w e-mail & calendar and then Evernote on the other screen.
  2. I have created tags for every day of the month (1-31) and notes get tagged on when I have planned to work on an item or need to review again. This system has helped not let anything fall thru the cracks!
  3. Yes it has taken me some self discipline. I work with two screens so one usually has Outlook open w my calendar & email and the other has Evernote up. Please continue to share your research. Thanks!
  4. To clarify, I create a tag for every day of the month: 1-31
  5. I use Evernote literally for everything. I have no paper files anymore. The way I keep track of what I need to do when is via tags. I create a visual Trace File, i.e., a tag for every day of the week. My notebooks are organized by the project or event that I am working on. Notes within those notebooks are tagged with days of the week that I need to work on or remember to do tasks on that project or event. If I need to work on a note that has multiple task every day this week then it will be tagged 23-27. Then across all my notebooks I just have to click on the tag 23 and see all the tasks I need to work on today. At the end of each day, I will go thru the tag and add or remove additional dates as needed. I don't do this but a friend of mine does: she uses the search todo:false to get every task that has a checkbox in front of it to pull up all her tasks that are incomplete. The 'tag trace' system I created works great for me and nothing falls thru the cracks as long as I am daily looking at today's tag.
