  1. I have several tasks with due dates in November, reminders one week before. I got a reminder today that the Task is due. 3 months early. Is this known behaviour? Date Nov 1, 2021 Reminder 7 days before Flagged Connected to a Note
  2. If there has been extended private testing internally in Evernote how did this make it to the production version?
  3. I use Day One and find the most powerful feature is the 'what happened a year ago on this day'. I wonder if tasks functionality could be used for this type of use automatically? I wouldn't want to create a reminder every day/journal entry but if it was inherited from a notebook it could work?
  4. Thanks for the considered response. Perhaps I was grumpy the day I posted, but if the explanation re competition laws globally etc was given up front then I think it would have avoided the hurrumphing. I'd still love to see global usage stats though...and, these days, if a company wants my IP they need to offer something in return, especially when I'm a paying user... Agreed everyone should use as they wish. But, it feels like I am often working hard to make Evernote do what I want, rather than it being easy for me. The Dashboards I've seen are impressive but they seem to be a lot of work. I don't want to have to constantly maintain a dashboard, just set it up and it does the work for me. The reference to other systems is more the idea of adding flexibility, rather than limiting it, where e.g. I've done lots of work in (more sophisticated and specialised) PM systems already, and want to leverage that work done already. It's the concept of other channels doing the work and Evernote, and users, getting the benefit if time energy is sunk. And it helps promote the product to other audiences - benefits to all.
  5. Thanks for the considered response. I'd only add that I meant it feels sometimes we are working hard for Evernote the 'system' to do what we want, rather than it being easy to achieve what we want. I agree Evernote is a blank slate that lets everyone work as they want, but for me the purpose of a dashboard is to aggregate the work done into a useful summary - rather than something that needs constant maintenance.
  6. Having read through this topic I am more and more curious as to why a dashboard competition was announced in the first place. I was also surprised at the range of experience people have - from not knowing what a dashboard was, to having some of the most intricate work I've seen in Evernote to achieve their aims. But, this feels like we are working for the system, instead of the system working for us. My view is Evernote still has basic functionality that it is poorly implemented, or missing and these need to be rectified immediately. The behind the scenes work shows this is happening and kudos to Ian Small and team on this intent. My fear is that Evernote will succumb to scope/function creep. It comes back to the basic premise of "what is Evernote for?" I've seen almost every piece of software I've used go from being light and perfect, to bloated and messy. (Mailchimp being a perfect example). I think Evernote should focus on being the best knowledge management tool there is. And then partner with good PM SaaS offerings. Many of the dashboards I've seen here are attempting to replicate PM software, e.g. Asana, Basecamp, etc. Evernote can't compete with these systems in terms of PPP management, workflow, dependencies etc. But, project delivery alwasy fails to adequate capture information generated through the project, especially when it has completed! I'm sure the developers/UI/UX at Evernote don't need to be told how to build a dashboard. For me as a user in a system the dashboard should aggregate the information in the system and display it in a way that is useful, the way I want it. I would expect a Dashboard in Evernote to allow me to easily add the metadata I want to see, e.g. Notebook, Tag, Notebook+Tag(s), To-do lists, reminders, etc. It's almost the concept of putting selected Saved Searches on a front page. And link out to the SaaS projects. And I would still like someone to clarify why this comp was for US residents only...?I would have hoped being a paying customer for 10+ years would have counted... @Ian Small
  7. Very disappointing to see this is for US users only. On this basis I'll decline to participate. I'd be interested to see the breakdown of user by region/country.
