  1. Time for me to start a new "There are too many highlighter color choices, and it is confusing. Please limit highlighter colors to just yellow or I will abandon Evernote." thread!
  2. This has been fixed with 7.6 via the new "Notes vs. Reminders" toolbar. Although related to that update, see my feature request
  3. It lets me include tasks that are overdue in my "Today" search. Or if you were commenting on whether I truly have tasks more than 60 days past due...no comment...
  4. Here are my searches in case anyone is interested (they all filter out complete tasks): All Tasks: -reminderDoneTime:* reminderOrder:* Tasks Due Today (including overdue tasks): reminderTime:day-60 -reminderTime:day+1 -reminderDoneTime:* reminderOrder:* Tasks Due Tomorrow: reminderTime:day+1 -reminderTime:day+2 -reminderDoneTime:* reminderOrder:*
  5. Yup - I have similar saved searches. It brings up note view, which doesn't list the due date prominently. That's why I like Reminder View. See screenshot below.
  6. I'd like to set the default view (Notes vs. Reminders) for a saved search. For example - I have a 3 saved searches that show me: 1) All My Tasks, 2) Tasks Due Today, and 3) Tasks Due Tomorrow. I click into one of those searches, then choose "Reminders" to see the reminder view. Unfortunately, whenever I switch between those saved searches, or to a different view all together - upon coming back the view switches back to "Notes". It would be great to simply remember the last view (and preserve it), or optionally let you specify the default view for a Saved Search.
  7. @DTLow - did you ever solve the "Invisible Notes" issue? I haven't seen a fix come through (and when I wrote Support months ago, they said engineering was aware of the problem and working on a fix). Am I supposed to rebuild my search index? I don't think that is the cause (as clicking around in the UX and then going back to my saved search eventually shows the note results) - but willing to try anything.
  8. Updated to 7.5.2 - not fixed :( Is anyone else still experiencing this issue, or is it just me?
  9. Sigh. Upgraded just now to 7.5 and still an issue. Anytime I go to a saved search that has zero results - clicking on another saved search with non-zero results shows the blank notes list. Any update from the Evernote team? Pretty please?
  10. While I get the frustration that this feature hasn't been built yet, we now have an Evernote employee actively engaged on this topic. Let's take advantage of that vs. venting frustration. Rebranding by the way involves a totally different team than the product/engineering teams, plus keep in mind there are likely hundreds of threads just like this one with people passionately making the case for their particular feature. So again - I understand your frustration, but let's instead overwhelm the Evernote team with evidence on why this feature should be a priority.
  11. Colors are needed to take advantage of the Eisenhower Matrix (a very popular time management tool).
  12. Sigh. Upgraded just now to 7.2.3 with anticipation this issue is fixed - nope, still there. I'm a big Evernote champion, but this nasty bug that has been around for months without a fix is starting to wear on me The blank notes problem seems to happen when I click on a saved search that returns zero results. If I then click on another saved search that should show results, it often is blank. Only upon clicking around in other saved searches and back again can I get the blank notes to show again.
  13. I just upgraded to 7.2 (hoping the invisible note list issue would be gone). Unfortunately, it still shows up for me (see screenshot). Was reeeeeeaaaaalllllyyyyyy hoping this would be fixed in this release.
  14. You need to build support for different color highlighters - because it's YOUR fault that I want them now. I read your recent blog post about the Eisenhower Matrix - where you recommend using different colors to highlight tasks that are urgent & important, vs. important & not urgent, etc. You convinced me! And now I find out I can't highlight my task list using the colors you suggest. Don't tease me, bro.
  15. Almost a year later - and I am still here. Going to keep lobbying for this change. Can we do it? YES WE CAN! To summarize the paint point to fix here: You can take a reminder from your list and add a date. Imagine a reminder is your "To Do" item, and you just picked a date to complete the item.Now you decide you want to remove the reminder date. For the "To Do" list analogy, this is equivalent to deciding you changed your mind and haven't decided when to tackle that to-do item.To do this today - you must:Clear the reminder completely (i.e. convert it from a reminder into an ordinary note)Then mark the note as a reminder again. At this point, the note is a reminder without a date. My proposal is to allow the reminder date to be cleared/unset more easily. For example:
  16. I upgraded to Yosemite and Evernote 6.0.5 and now I want to cry my eyes out every time I see that dang beach ball. Note that I want to cry because I depend on Evernote for so much at work and in my personal life, so I really feel the pain of its current sub-optimal performance. As a Product Manager myself, my mantra is never point out a problem without at least attempting to suggest a solution. So here goes. Apologies in advance if what I'm about to suggest makes no sense at all. I have a technical background, but I'm speaking about something I don't have direct experience with. If re-indexing causes performance problems upon fresh install or upgrade, why not bootstrap the index ahead of time? A given user's data is not just stored locally - it's stored on the Evernote servers (and powers the online client experience). Unless the index itself is OS or machine-specific, couldn't you create the index ahead of time and then download the index upon native client install or upgrade? Some other thoughts: I realize the online experience might rely on giant tables filled with everyone's notes (and thus a giant index that can't be used as a bootstrap index). Still - all of the user's content is online, and a bootstrap index in theory could be created.I'd imagine creating bootstrapped indexes on Evernote servers is much faster than having each client do it. It can run on separate server instances, overnight, etc.Cost might be an issue - I get it is cheaper to have a distributed set of client computers each calculate their respective note index vs. centralizing it within Evernote and running it on Evernote-funded servers. But in the name of a great customer experience, you could prioritize which indexes you bootstrap (e.g. perhaps only users with X amount of notes or more, and/or users who log in frequently enough and thus more likely to feel the pain of poor performance, etc.). You could also treat this as a feature add for Premium users (i.e. Premium users get "priority indexing" or something like that).Something even simpler - have an icon show whenever indexing is going on (maybe even allow users to pause indexing). Right now, Evernote seems so dang slow. If I at least knew it was because an indexing operation was running (whether or not I have control over it), just that knowledge helps me attribute a cause to my slow performance. Well there you go. Hope that helps! Looking forward to 6.0.6 and the end of beach balls while making simple edits to my notes!
  17. I haven't gone away, just FYI. Still stalking checking in. Just wishing, hoping, and waiting for the ability to clear the date on a reminder without having to convert the reminder back to a note, then back to a reminder again. Maybe a "Clear Date" button?
  18. How about an option to display any "ToDo" notes with today's date? Then Evernote can take the place of the "Reminders" widget that comes with iOS for those of us who use Evernote exclusively to manage to-dos (as well as general notes).
  19. Ok, Jackolicious - I've got another reason why you should implement my feature request: I just attended your SXSW Evernote User Appreciation party, dressed up in Evernote colors, and one of your engineers promised to implement my feature requests. Ok, ok, I lied. The engineer I met worked on Skitch and only promised to put in a good word for me. The rest is true (including the green sweater I wore). I am upset though because I was unable to pin the Evernote logo on the elephant's tail, and only won a sticker vs. a t-shirt. Also - I decided to turn the original forum post into a blog post (I'm a Product Manager as well, so I see these motivational phrases / thinly veiled threats all the time). This is in no way an attempt to drive traffic to my personal blog. 10 Popular Ways to Get Your Feature Requests Implemented Cheers, xmasmoneky
  20. Note: I have been working with Evernote support trying to track this bug down - opening it up to the community to see if anyone else can help me and/or verify this bug. Background - I have my business ideas stored under tag "bizideas-mine" and interesting business ideas from others saved under tag "bizideas-others". I also have a tag "Dozen-blogged" to mark which ideas I have blogged about on my personal blog. So here's the problem. I am trying to create a saved search to show me which business ideas (mine or from others) I haven't blogged about yet. Here is the grammar I use: -tag:Dozen-blogged tag:bizideas* When I enter that search in the Mac search bar, it works like a charm. If I try to save the search, the Mac client keeps rewriting it as "-tag:Dozen-blogged tag:bizideas" (which ends up finding none of my notes). In the web client, the same saved search renders correctly. So the bug is not in how the saved search is stored - the bug is that the Mac client interprets the saved search incorrectly. I even tried uninstalling my Mac App Store version of Evernote and trying the latest direct client, but same problem. I also tried using quotes - i.e. -tag:Dozen-blogged "tag:bizideas*" - but I get the same issue. Anyone have any suggestions? Step 1 - Direct Search Works Step 2 - Saving the Search Step 3 - Running the Saved Search Returns Nothing
  21. Excited to see this finally ready for release - thanks for the hard work Evernote team! (P.S. This is a new tactic. Pretend my feature request is done to create feelings of guilt/obligation to live up to expectations. I think this time I've finally nailed it.)
  22. The lack of #1 (no way to remove a due date on a reminder without turning the reminder off and back on for a note) is becoming a real pain now that I use Evernote daily to manage my task list. Any good news to share? All my standard motivational phrases / thinly veiled threats stand. I can imagine under the "Change Date" context menu, you add "Remove Date" or "Clear Date" after the "In a Week" button). Heck - if you implement #1, you have my permission to skip request #2!
  23. Two quick feature requests: Have a "Remove Date" button or option for reminders - vs. removing the reminder all together, then retagging the note as a reminderAdd a "Today" button to the "Add Date to Reminder" menu option (right now, I just see "Tomorrow" and "In a week") And here are the standard motivational phrases / thinly veiled threats to get your PMs to make this a priority (choose your favorite!): I am a free user, and if I just had these features I'd totally become a premium member.I'm currently a Premium member, but the lack of these simple features is astounding. If these aren't built I am totally leaving Evernote forever.These features should be easy, based on my obvious visibility into your code and roadmap. I could churn it out in 5.4 nanoseconds myself.I know your team works hard and has a lot of requests. You guys are doing a great job! And I hope you can get to my features. And I hope if I empathize with you, you'll feel a sudden obligation to keep me happy.If you build these for me, I'll totally be your biggest fan ever and tell my friends/family/strangers about Evernote (note: adult version of "If you do this I'll be your best friend!").I would totally pay more for these features if that shows you how valuable and a priority these features should be (so long as any pay increase is purely hypothetical).I will try to be funny and appear like I'm not trying to motivate you / make thinly veiled threats, in the real hope that - er, never mind on this one.

  24. I do use it as an everyday task list, but it is because I'm committed to using only one tool for all tasks. I agree it's great for longer-running tasks, and a little bit of a pain to use for quick todos. But I think if Evernote tries to be both a great archiver and an easy to use todo-list, it will fail at both. I'd rather they choose to be a great archiver, optimize for that scenario, and then try their best to improve their "todo" functionality within the confines of those product principles.
  25. I think the point of Evernote is you never delete notes (just like Gmail never really deletes email). I originally made a tag called "Todos-Completed" and just put completed tasks there (or just delete them, of course). I eventually settled on just filtering them out from my view using the search grammar - e.g. this shows all tasks that aren't complete: "reminderOrder:* -reminderDoneTime:*" Cheers, Roshan
