  1. Agreed! it's very annoying to have to click on the title field every time.
  2. Hello EN community! Is there a way we can change the default reminder time? On the desktop app, it defaults to something random. Is there a way I can set the default to, say, 9AM every time I create a reminder? Thanks for your time!
  3. Done what? Are you saying that you can now search through evernote with the google search bar??
  4. That's exactly how I've started to use it!
  5. Sorry, i didn't mean to sound rude! Thanks, I'll ask in the appropriate forum.
  6. Thanks! I'm on Android, but I don't this relates to Android specifically. It's mobile in general.
  7. Yes, thank you! But desktop isn't really an issue for me. Mobile is where I'd like this.
  8. That's true - I guess I could just save the search and add it my shortcuts. But that would kind of clutter the shortcuts, right? If there was a way I could easily add my saved searches into a note, sort of like an "Index" of "Table of Contents" note, that would be perfect!
  9. Hey EN Community, So on the desktop version of Evernote (I'm on Windows), I can select multiple tags to filter notes accordingly. It's pretty cumbersome to do this regularly on mobile (android, for me). Is there a way I can create saved searches of these filtered tags, and add them to a note for easy access on my homescreen? I'd love any ideas. Thanks!
  10. Actually, yes, Google is reportedly planning on killing QuickOffice. So you're right in saying that you'd now use Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides (which are great apps, btw). I'm not sure if this is what you're asking, but can't you choose what app to open your file with, on Android? eg. if you click on a spreadsheet in evernote, and you have QuickOffice and Google Sheets installed, it should ask you which you want to open it with, correct?
  11. Sounds good! But doesn't that mean you're inputting stuff into your Calendar first? By the way, Zapier is kind of like ifttt, but it's WAY more flexible. You can EN reminders --> Google Calendar! The problem is, the free version only allows for 5 zaps per day, which may not be enough for you. Right now, what I'm doing for priorities is this - tagging notes with !!!, !!, and !. Then I either filter by that tag, or I just sort notes by tag so that all the notes with !!! go at the top.
  12. Thanks! I'll try this out and see how it works. Okay, so tagging for priority. This sounds like it'd work. I'll give it a shot as well. Thanks! How do you guys manage due dates? Do you just set a reminder? Or let it be in whatever bucket it wants until it hits "1-Today"?
  13. Thanks for the reply! So basically, all the tasks will be in a note? Doesn't that seem a little hack-y? And again, it sounds like a lot of time spent on moving things around. Or is this just normal?
  14. Hey EN Community! I'm a new user (just about a month), and I'm really loving Evernote for collecting and searching. I usually like to use program for everything, so I read about The Secret Weapon, GTD, and how to use evernote to manage tasks. The quick note collection is amazing. It's super quick to dump all my thoughts, and process later. However, the processing/task management part is getting to be exceedingly difficult for me. I started with the TSW methodology of tagging for .What .When .Where & .Who. This is my tagging structure: .When!Daily0-Ongoing1-Today2-Tomorrow3-This Week4-This Month5-Someday/Maybe.What:Project 1:Errands:Grocery:General:Meet:Online:College.Where@Place1@City@Home So there's a few problems I have with this How do I prioritize actions? Right now there's just a dump of tasks sitting there when I click 1-Today. Not sure how to use due dates here... (I don't want a reminder, just to be able to add due dates) And the biggest problem - using this on mobile. Android or iOS, it doesn't matter. It's difficult to switch between tags (you can't even sort by tags on the app), and just doesn't feel very efficient. Bottom line - the quick note taking part is AMAZING. But I seem to be spending a lot more time in administration that actually performing the tasks! (exaggeration, but you get my point) I'd really appreciate your input, and sorry for the long post!
  15. Thanks so much. I have two more questions - 1. How do you manage due dates? 2. How do you get priorities in tasks? If you have tons of notes in "Today", how would you decide what to do next, or what's most important? I LOVE the brain dump part of evernote. I just dump my thought, and process later. The actual task management is an issue for me.
