  1. When I attempt to link a note to a calendar event, a pop up appears indicating I Haven't connected to a calendar. However, when I attempt to do so, I then get an error indicating that I am already connected to a Calendar. In other words, I am stuck. Any suggestions? Also, I assume the new calendar integration has nothing to do with Task Due Dates? Sure would be nice to complete the integration by showing tasks in Google Calendar
  2. Is it possible to show tasks due times on Google Calendar? I see a new beta feature called "Calendar Event" but can't seem to find any information about it and thus not sure if it is related to showing Tasks on the calendar. I use Cronofy to sync Evernote Note Reminders to Google Calendar (which works great, by the way), but really need Tasks to also show up on Google Calendar. Thanks
  3. When I try to move a note to a new notebook by using the shortcut, my main notebooks i greyed out and I cannot click on it. However, I can drag the note to the notebook successfully. This just started happening today. Any idea what is causing the problem? Thanks
  4. Excellent and essential suggestion!!! I currently use Cronofy, but would be so much better to have a direct integration. Furthermore, Cronofy only works on the not reminder, of course, not on the new task features.
  5. Great feature and I love the suggestions being made. Please add to the list an attribute for tasks assigned to others or waiting on from others. This will allow filtering so that Tasks I am responsible for can be separated from those I am waiting for others to complete. Thanks for the good work!
  6. True, and thank you. I am just hoping that Evernote simply adds another attribute to the task. The new Task screen in the mobile iphone app is beautiful and with this addition of such an attribute, would be one more helpful filtering function (in addition to Due Date and Flagged).
  7. Agreed. My approach is simple - when I send an email that requires a response, I use a Gmail extension called Mixmax that allows me to set a reminder at a specific date and time, along with personal notes only viewable by me. If the recipient gets back to me before the reminder date, all is well. If not, I follow up. Given that I am in sales, my follow ups are managing my leads, not colleagues, and thus are even more essential. Thus, managing such follow ups within Evernote would be very helpful.
  8. I completely agree, but at the same time, "trust but verify". In other words, I do clearly communicate the ask, but at the end of the day, I pay the price for a lack of response, so generally speaking I put a reminder on the note that has tasks needed from others. In the same light, I use reminders on emails I send (and love Mixmax for that function), wherein I can make a request via email and ensure that if no response within a designated period of time that it is brought back to my attention, along with notes to reminder me of the specific context and issues (also available in Mixmax). Just trying to emulate that within Evernote and I think the new Task function will work well if they add an additional attribute. Thanks for the discussion. This kind of back and forth always leads to useful ideas. Have a great weekend. David
  9. Thanks, yes, I mentioned the flagging in point 6 above, but hoping someone from Evernote will pay attention and add another attribute for "assigned to others".
  10. Thanks for the suggestions, but the assigned to others tasks are not the type of task I would share with someone else. The workflow is more like: I am on the phone taking notes during a conversation I currently use bullet points for data and checkboxes for tasks I use a double checkbox when the task is in the hands of someone else This then allows me to easily glance at a note and see what open tasks remain in my hands as well as in other people's hands Under the new Task system, I can create a task for myself but there is no way to see if it is a task I am waiting for someone else to complete I suppose I could use the flag attribute as a designator for tasks assigned to others, but would rather have a specific attribute for that and thus save the flag for key tasks as it is designed to do. In other words, I am not sharing notes with others. It is just my on the fly notetaking approach that I am hoping to make even better through the use of the new Task features in Evernote. Am certainly open to further suggestions and appreciate your input! Thanks, David
  11. Loving the first iteration of Tasks. Please consider a designation for tasks assigned to others and add a filter for that designation. I include tasks for myself in notes as well as tasks I am waiting on from others, so would be very helpful to have both within the new task set up. Thanks!
  12. Ok, thanks. that's what I thought, but always worth asking. For those interested, Cronofy is a great syncing solution, at least until Evernote adds it to the product itself. If anyone from Evernote monitors these posts, please consider adding an All Day feature wherein Reminders can be set but without a specific time. As a reference, Clickup syncs directly with Google Calendar and allows for either a specific time or All Day setting. Thanks again
  13. I use Cronofy to sync Evernote reminders with my Google Calendar. So, first question - is that currently the best practice or does Evernote directly allow for syncing to Gcal these days? Second, is there a way to set a Reminder as an All Day event, rather than a specific time? Ideally, I would like all my Evernote Reminders to show up in my Gcal as an All day event rather than at a specific time? Thanks!
  14. Is there a way to remove the Home Screen and go straight to All Notes? (Mobile and desktop)
  15. Thanks. It is starting to sink in. Just to be clear, my use case is that I am on a call and taking down bulleted lists of data. When an action item is brought up, I quickly add a checkbox to the bullet list in order to easily visualize and distinguish between data and action items. I then add a second checkbox if the action item is for the other party to complete. So, in my case, sounds like checkboxes are the way to go, not checklists. Thanks again to everyone for helping me sort through this.
