  1. Not satisfied with the general offerings a la GTD and other systems, I've spent the past couple of years cobbling together a new productivity system. The current iteration plays nicely with Evernote, but there's a few open loops that I'd like to get feedback on. Also, I'd be open to any suggestions to improve the overall system. So... if you interested in: journaling Covey's 7 productivity in general Evernote (obviously) Send me a PM
  2. Ok so I am trying to keep everything together. Meaning, my to do list & notes ALL in EN. I like the idea of using and being familiar with ONE app and not 2, with regards to managing my businesses and personal life. So I am resisting omnifocus and todoist. VERY tempted to just accept these are better than evernote for task management and just use 2 apps. I do think though, in EN, there must be a simple way. I am trying to make TSW work, for those who are aware, with have a pending actions notebook. This is fine for me most the time, just using memory to link the 'tasks' with the bigger project. In GTD there is a big difference between a project and a next action, we cannot DO a project, we can DO a next action. Interested to know how you guys are setting up TSW regards to projects, ie, in GTD terminology, your 'Projects List'. The next actions part in TSW is simple. I get that. Just trying to figure the Projects List part. I even emailed TSW but had no response, they are probably busy or it is probably outlined clearly somewhere but I have missed it. One way I know is to tag each project with it's project name under a Nested Tag named 'Active Projects' but on an IOS device it's not easy to add new projects under a nested tag, so I was considering using a 'Business' stack and a 'Personal' stack and then make a new notebook for each Project with seprate notes as tasks with in that note. I'm just getting into searc syntaxes and kinda feel it's better to have less notebooks or stacks for these searches. I will not aim for perfection in this, and I know I cannot have everything exactly as I wish for it to be. And I know I could eventually figure my own solutions out. Your opinions on this though would be hugely interesting to read, that is, relating to setting up Projects & Next Actions. How you seperate them, link them etc etc etc. Kind Regards Daniel
  3. Aunque Evernote facilita la búsqueda de contenido, es una buena idea establecer una forma coherente de organizar y nombrar las notas, libretas y etiquetas para facilitarte a ti y a otras personas encontrar lo que necesitan. Las libretas son la forma más fácil de organizar las notas en Evernote y, en general, se utilizan para separar las notas por categoría, ubicación u objetivo. Por ejemplo, puedes crear una libreta que se llame 'Notas de trabajo' y una que se llame 'Notas personales' para que estas notas estén separadas y sea más fácil encontrarlas. Organiza notas en las libretas para que puedas navegar, buscar y compartir notas similares fácilmente; por ejemplo, puedes crear una libreta para: Proyectos de trabajo Planificación de viajes Proyectos creativos Recursos de la empresa Recibos Contratos o documentos Tips para una mejor organización de tu cuenta Crea una estructura de libretas lógica Define un conjunto de etiquetas, que puedas volver a utilizar y que se ajuste a tus necesidades Establece normas para fijar los nombres 1) Crea una estructura de libretas lógica Ejemplos: Nombre Descripción Recursos Humanos: Contiene una serie de recursos compartidos con toda la empresa (políticas, beneficios, días de fiesta de la empresa, políticas y procedimientos, organigrama, etc.) Ventas y Marketing: Contiene historias y estudios de casos de empresas que utilizan bien un producto y se comparte con toda la empresa Desarrollo de Productos: Contiene notas con características, diseños, notas de reuniones y tareas y se comparte con cada equipo de producto Documentos: Contiene copias de documentos importantes, pasaportes, recibos, actas de nacimiento, copia de licencia, ID's 2) Define un conjunto de etiquetas, que puedas volver a utilizar Añadir etiquetas que se pueden buscar y que hacen referencia a una empresa, el estado del proyecto, propietario de una tarea o proyecto, u otros términos para que sea más fácil encontrar o filtrar contenidos. Ejemplos: Gestión de tareas: ahora, siguiente, completado Seguimiento de la solicitud: nuevo, en progreso, pendiente, cerrado Contratación: Zurich, Tokio, SF, Boston, Nota: Las etiquetas pueden ser combinaciones de palabras también: zurich_open, zurich_closed 3) Establece normas para fijar los nombres Las normas para fijar nombres hacen que sea más fácil para y para quienes compartes la información. Por ejemplo, podrías proponer una directriz en la que cada grupo, persona o departamento utilice su propio código de grupo (por ejemplo, “MKTG” para “Marketing”) siempre que creen un nuevo título para una libreta o nota compartida. Ese código se puede utilizar para buscar todas las libretas que tiene un grupo o departamento determinado. Ejemplos Para libretas: Todas las libretas comienzan con un prefijo de una palabra para el departamento o grupo que la tiene. Así, todas las libretas del departamento de ventas, por ejemplo, comenzarían con “Ventas:” como por ejemplo, “Ventas: Informes” Para notas: Todas las notas relacionadas con las reuniones empiezan con la fecha que aparece en el título de la nota, como por ejemplo “2014-09-05 Reunión Semanal PM” Para etiquetas: Todas las etiquetas que hacen referencia a una fase de lanzamiento o del proyecto comienzan con un símbolo asterisco (*) como en “*alfa”, “*diseño”, o “*pendiente” Más consejos Explora los siguientes consejos para descubrir otras formar de trabajar con las etiquetas: Accede tus búsquedas más frecuentes utilizando los atajos: Crea atajos para acceder rápidamente a lo que utilizas de manera diaria Crea una estructura organizada: Acuerda las normas para establecer los nombres y una estructura organizada para las notas, libretas y etiquetas.
  4. I'm kind of in an interesting place. I'm a some what young guy working an admin type job and have been horribly disorganized for a long time. Recently I ran across GTD in a book I was reading that referenced the book Getting Things Done.... I've read the book so far about half way but something that keeps side tracking me is how exactly am I going to implement any type of system that is function within my "corporate" IT environment. Lets say I work for a large corporation that only allows Outlook (no add-ons, no self installed programs, nothing) I can't install EN (I can use the web version though) but more importantly, I can't get anything into EN from my email. So I feel like I'd waste more time manually typing notes to enter into EN because I can't move the email over (emailing to EN isn't an option either) Contrast this with, if I were to use Outlook for my GTD setup. I'd be stuck with a system that only works at my desk. (My email can be accessed from any computer in any office and I do work out of other offices and using other computers, but I also work away from my desk quite a bit) Our company doesn't allow access to anything outside of their control (no phone, tablet, ect) So it appears that I'm in the middle of a rock and a hard place: With outlook the emails can obviously be in my new "system" but not mobile like me. With EN I have to manually recreate a bunch of stuff and my system would be more like notes to go back to an email in my inbox, but I can access it everywhere. I'm leaning more into EN because I love EN and use it for other items now and I own a side business so I'd like everything in one place but I don't know how to handle my "disconnected" employer. Any thoughts? Thanks
  5. Hello, I was just looking to get some feedback from anyone who uses GTD and Evernote together, along with answering some general power user usability questions. I currently have it set up with notebooks and then create new notes for next actions and individual items. I'm curious if something like this really scales and also what everyone else has for actual amount of notes in their notebooks? For example: How many notes before it becomes really hard to use a notebook? I have 65 in my largest and 370 overall. I seems like it's already getting hard to use with this scale. My General questions: For the really heavy Evernote users how to reach anywhere near 10GB for premium? I use my Evernote everyday, but don't get anywhere close to 1GB. Does anyone know of a notebook mark to put notebooks at the bottom that isn't the letter Z? Most special characters bring the notebook to the top, I just want a couple low priority ones to be at the bottom. Is there a way to search by note title? The search function seems to only search by note text? Is there a way to sort by most used note as well? For scaling up in large Evernote uses do you find yourself using very large notes or several notes? Tags or several notebooks? I'll most likely make a different post for critiques on how I'm trying to implement GTD with Evernote, I believe this would be the right forum. Thanks in advance if you can answer any of these questions.
  6. Hi. Would please let me know how to handle multiple projects and structure the content with Evernote for Windows. I have few notebooks as suggested by David Allen. My window at Evernote was customized to show 3 parts, panel on the left, cards of the projects in the middle and detais of notes in the right. One of these is for example "Projects Personal" and on such logical place it I have created Project 1 and so forth, and under this notebook called Project 1 I would like to add major milestones as the major steps I need to accomplished and wanted to be able to view on my center and also right of my Evernote window every tasks that belongs to each unique project. Shortcutt inbox >Next Action > Projects Personal Project 1 Project 2 Project 3 SomewayMaybe Waiting For Per example in the middle I would be able to see all those notes about personal projects to be accomplished in the following weeks ahead.

  10. Is there any way to export a tree of labels to another account? I need it to set up a GTD system that would be connected with my wife's account. I tried to create a note in a shared notebook that I assigned the whole tree of labels (all of them) to. But I got a bad result: only 20+ labels were assigned to that note in my wife's account while 50+ labels I saw in that note from my account.
  11. I am looking for some advice and feedback... One of my big problems is that I forget when I commit to doing something for someone. I forget to write it down when I make the commitment and it doesn't even make my to-do list. Until I do the dreaded head-slap and say "I forgot, but yes I will get you that report, thanks for reminding me." So, two of us GTD disciples started a little project to create automated Evernote to-do lists from our email. It simply track the commitments we make as we send email to colleagues, customers, suppliers, etc. So far, we are training the system to pick out our commitments and create an Evernote to-do item. Is there already something out there that would do this for us? Is closing open loops a problem that needs an automated solution? We are not sure if anyone but us would find this useful. Any guidance would be appreciated. Lindsay.

  13. Many of us who use IQTELL have been searching for years to find the perfect solution for managing our Inboxes. Nothing matches the flexibility of IQTELL, an no other program comes close to providing the same workflow. Most importantly, no program integrates Evernote and Email the way IQTELL does. At first, I thought it was dated and bulky. But once you commit to it, you can really make progress and create a custom workflow that works for you. It changed the way I operate and made me more productive almost instantly. It's a no-brainer that IQTELL should be part of Evernote. Many IQTELL users believe this would be a great partnership as well. Evernote could easily take the program to new places and even expand 3rd party integrations. Let me know what you think by commenting below. If you know IQTELL, then you know I'm right. If you don't, spend some time with it and I hope you'll agree that it's a match that will definitely work.
  14. Hi Everyone, If you use TSW (or similar) for GTD, and you've been wishing you had an automatically generated list of "next action" notes that made using Evernote for GTD on the mobile platform a whole lot easier - look no further. Informant creates task lists grouped by GTD context, and provides task completion - these two features achieve my first goal of being able to pick out the "next action" for any given context very very quickly - and when I tick off an action as completed, the web service automatically moves the task to a "Completed" folder. Informant is now in official public BETA. If you'd like to try it out - you can sign up for free at https://informant.coderage-software.com - I would greatly appreciate your feedback as to how Informant fits your GTD workflow, and what can be done to make it better - with your feedback I can reach my goal of making Informant the best GTD integration possible. If you want to browse the "quick start" guide; please take a look at the public notebook that contains Informant Documentation. Thanks!--John Clayton
  15. Hello, A long time reader on the Evernote Community, time to give back : ) ## Goals Minimalist / SimplicityNotebook & Stack BasedUse as little tag as possible## Set up 2 stacks00 GTD (stack)0 - inbox (one topic/task/item per note)1 - Next Actions (notebook)100 - Agenda (I've only one note for all the person, each separate by a horizontal line)101 - at Work Station (@work, list of all next action when I have full access to all the tools I need)102 - at Home103 - at Out & About (@Errand)104 - at Anywhere105 - Interesting Article (This can be in a checklist as well as in the at Anywhere but I separate it because I read at least 30 mins a day, so when I want to read I just open this note. It contain both web link & note link)106 - Waiting For2 - Project (notebook)201 - Current Project (list of all current project in one note)202 - Waiting For (I no longer use this note. Merge it with someday/maybe.203 - Someday 204 - Maybe3 - Project Reference (notebook)a lot of note. One project can have as many note as required. Evernote will have some code/id match with the one in "201"4 - Checklist (notebook)quite a number of note01 Reference Material (stack)for this I create a number of notebook into a broad category that suite my style e.g. bill & payment, cool web (both concept, idea, design, etc.)This is the only place I use tag. I have about 10 tags e.g. tool (for any note that contain info about a useful tool both digital and physical) ,etc.## Usage I look at "201" current project only a few times a day, usually when I have new projectMost of the time i will be in any notebook in "1 - Next Actions"I open "3 - Project Reference" as required by my workCurrently I use only the web version of EN (Just install SSD HD with only 250 GB). I open 5 tabs, each tab are usually for 1 notebooktab 1 for "0 - inbox"tab 2 for "1 - next action" (when click the notebook the note will change to all action that I can do at that context)tab 3 for "2 - project"tab 4 for "3 - Project Reference"tab 5 is not for "4 - Checklist" but for "SEARCH". This way, I always have a quick access to my inbox, next action, project and project reference material.When I do the weekly review, I will spend quite sometime on "2 - Project" and "4 - Checklist"## Current Issue When change notebook of a note, it (the list) goto that changed notebook. A little bit hard to upload file. It would be great if each notebook can sort note by different method. e.g. "0 - inbox" by date created, "1 - Next Actions" by title, "search" by date updated ,etc.Hope this is useful. PS. please pardon my English. English is not my native tongue.
  16. Hi All I would love to introduce you to my new app called Ghostnote. Ghostnote is not your normal notes app but a very different take on the concept of note taking. With Ghostnote you add notes to the actual assets on the computer, whether that is a file a folder, a website or even a document open inside of an app. Ghostnote remembers the context and is always just one click away. In other words you just add the notes and Ghostnote takes care of getting them back to you in the right context. You can check out how it works by going to our website https://www.ghostnoteapp.com Alternatively you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYQVyokbep0 That should give you an idea about why Ghostnote is a unique tool and why it works so well with Evernote. It integrates flawlessly with Evernote for easy retrieval of the notes if you want that later. We got 4.5 stars on the Mac App Store. It is currently for Mac but is being developed for Windows too. The app is $9.99 and there is a 7 day trial version. Please give it a spin and let us know what you think. I am a small indie developer so all feedback is appreciated. Thanks
  17. For those of you who are GTD fans, we just released a new GTD® & Evernote® Setup Guide. Two different versions available for Mac and Windows desktop. Lots of great GTD tips, tricks, and strategies from David Allen & team for configuring Evernote Notebooks for projects, next actions, and reference Notebooks. You can find them here: https://secure.davidco.com/store/catalog/Setup-Guides-p-1-c-263.php Hope you find this useful for your GTD practice!
  18. I am constantly trying to ensure that my data can be reused and connected so I may build future thoughts. I use TheBrain Software as a file content management system I use Evernote for all of my data capture and notes I use Mac Journal & Scivner for my articles Recently, I have been investigating developing a wiki that would be used, sometimes privately, and other times publicly. I was wondering if I could do this in Evernote? Has anyone tried this or have a thought on how to do this?
  19. I've been applying the GTD system pretty religiously for a couple of years now, and like most people who stick with it, I have seen great increases in productivity. So naturally, I've also been trying to convince friends and family to give it a try, but they seem really reluctant. Whenever I ask them why that is so, they basically tell me they cannot get themselves to even finish reading the book, because it's a rather dry read... I'm sure some of you know what I mean. In order to maybe convert some of my friends yet, I wrote a blog post in which I try to give a bare-bones summary of the Getting Things Done system, based on Evernote. The idea is to give them 95% of the benefits without them having to torture themselves reading the book - hopefully, they will still do that later ;-) I would be really interested in some feedback on my article by some people who have a good grasp of Evernote and the GTD system themselves! Did I forget anything essential? Could I shorten / simplify the post even further? What do you think about the style - too distracting / too wannabe funny? Please be really critical, I'm German, I can take it ;-) http://www.nicholasdrillman.com/the-ultimate-gtd-summary/ Looking forward to reading and discussing your thoughts and ideas! Thank you!
  20. I thought I would share how I have been using EN as a task manager, maybe get some feedback from the community on how to improve my process. I have about two dozen notebooks that I am slowly clearing out, replacing with tags and moving into the !Cabinet folder. I've just gotten tired of trying to sift through so many notebooks. The !Inbox notebook is set as my default notebook and is where I send everything that I can't process immediately. An example of my workflow: if I get an actionable email in outlook, I'll click the "Add to Evernote 5" button and assign it an @work tag and a tag for whomever the action is related to. (I'm not sure how helpful that is, as almost always the email/note itself has the persons name in it and I have yet to sort the tags by person.) Then I select which notebook to send it to. If I'm not sure, and I'm just trying to clear out my outlook inbox, I'll just send it to my EN inbox. If its easily identifiable as an action that I need to perform I'll send it to the 1-Next Action notebook, or if its something someone else needs to do I'll, send it to the 2-Waiting notebook. The Soon notebook is for items that I need to complete but aren't a high priority or an upcoming event, that is more than a week away. I always add reminders to these notes for about a week out, or two days before the event and usually end up moving them to the next action notebook when the reminder hits. Think on It is for items that I'm not sure how to complete or how to process. Read Later is self explanatory and Agenda is used to track regular meeting notes. Purchases hasn't seen a lot of use, but a few times I've needed to keep track of the ridiculously convoluted purchasing process here at work, and I didn't want to track it in outlook. Projects is where I keep our list of ongoing projects that don't have an actionable item as well as projects that have not started yet. Questions, comments, and criticisms are more than welcome. Thanks for taking the time.
  21. Hi i am new to EN i am using EN for capturing and storing all my research data for my master's thesis. i expect that there will be hundreds of notes and a large number of tags - maybe 50 to 100 i would also like to set up GTD in EN i'm worried that if i set up GTD in the same instance of EN that i use for my research project, the space could be become cluttered and unwieldy. what is the best way for me to manage this? if i keep everything in one instance - how should i set it up? if you suggest two instances, how do i create the second instance? thank you so much for your help -Ethan
  22. Hi EN users. I know that many of us are struggling to use EN as GTD tool. Here is a guide that I made that worked for me. I hope it helps you also.
  23. [uPDATED July 4, 2014 - Our 1-year anniversary] Never again forget tasks lost in your notes. Stop wasting time transferring tasks from Evernote to your dedicated task app. TaskClone copies or "clones" your todos OUT of Evernote and INTO your favorite task app (40+ supported). After a year of development, see our post on the 8 Ways TaskClone Improves Evernote Productivity: Cloning tasks to your task app Aggregating tasks across Evernote into one "task list" note (free and no task app required) Sending tasks to multiple task apps (e.g. home & work) Setting due dates, assignees, tags and more Adding default parameters to each task (e.g. tag, folder) Creating new notes from each task Creating iOS Reminders from tasks Scheduling events in Google CalendarTo get a <2min preview of TaskClone in action, check the video. TaskClone was built on a few premises: While many seek an all-in-one solution for tasks, notes, calendar and email, we should not sacrifice a full feature-set that allows start dates, due dates, reminders, assignees, prioritization, context and categorization.Rather than compromise, we want the best software for each need while simplifying integration among them and minimizing cost. For us, this means building the perfect task app is a job for someone else. Not Evernote and not TaskClone.Being able to add Reminders at the note level is not sufficient for those who don't need a reminder on a whole note, but on the many tasks that might be within that note which may have very different due dates, priorities, assignees, etc.Everyone seems to have a different workflow, so flexibility is very important. A Great Year! It's been wonderful hearing from so many how TaskClone has solved practical problems and made them more productive. Social media and the blogosphere have been great.

  24. Hi fellow EN users, I have a very general question about handling multiple tags from a single context (i.e. .What, for example). Some background: Have used EN for several weeks; am making the transition to the GTD productivity system. My EN + TSW tag system is your textbook TSW template: .What .Active Projects Current Project A Current Project B .Inactive Projects On-hold Project A Email Gift Purchase Meeting Phone Call Read / Review Write-up .When !Daily 1-Now 2-Next ... etc .Where @Work @Home @Restaurant ... etc .Who Person A Person B ... Person X I modified TSW slightly by adding a 'Reference' context for exclusively tagging Cabinet notes only: -Reference #Fact #News #Outing #Receipt ... etc However, herein appears a subtle flaw (or maybe not): I find myself frequently tagging notes within multiple tags from a single context. For example: a single note may have 2, 3 different ".What" tags mapped to it. For instance: I have a note with .What tags "Current Project A" and "Email" mapped to it. Maybe I'm looking too-deep into TSW / GTD, but is this multiple-tagging from a single context frowned upon (from a convention perspective)? Or should I just "let it all go" and tag liberally (within reason, that is)? Thank you in advance, p.
  25. For anyone who is interested in EN and GTD, I strongly recommend that you check out this ebook. http://www.afterthebook.com/master-david-allens-gtd-with-evernote/ It is the most thorough, detailed ebook on EN integration and GTD that I've had the pleasure of reading. I've found most other guides to be rather light weight - too much on what EN is and then only a little on using EN for GTD. This book is a deep dive. If you want to create a very robust system that can handle a wide range of tasks and projects, then this is for you. The author has videos which outline the method, but the book provides a clear recipe for setting it all up. As an added bonus, he offers a section on searches that allow you to analyze your tasks and perform house keeping on your GTD system. Although you can learn a lot from the videos, the book is worth having for the detail. For the record, I am completely unaffiliated with the author, just a happy customer. Cheers
