  1. 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
  2. I love using Evernote on my laptop, but not so much on my iPhone. Can I be the only one who finds it hard to jot a quick thought in the Evernote iPhone app? Because of this, I developed a fast app that's great for quick notes and (especially) lists, and saves back to Evernote. It’s called UpWord. I’d love to hear if anyone else finds Evernote’s iPhone app a bit hard to use, and if anyone thinks my app is helpful. Feature requests and feedback are welcome. Thank you! Get UpWord Notes for Free: Tap this link on your iPhone: https://itunes.apple.com/US/app/id778883247?mt=8, or Search “UpWord” in the App Store Benefits: Swipe List: create lists, cross off as done, and highlight as important - with one simple swipe One-Tap Reminders: quickly save a note or task for later Repeating reminders Organize with folders & favorites Save to Evernote Beautiful design themes & fonts for personalization Multi-level undo & redo Opens straight to a new note to capture ideas faster (turn on in "Settings") Full-text search (titles & note contents) Word count Night mode, for typing in the dark Sort notes by recency, alphabetical order, or reverse-alphabetical
  3. I am using Evernote more and more as a GTD tool, mostly with Zendone so I have a lot of notes with attachments in them. Sometimes there are multiple attachments, usually collected through email. I find it easiest to just save the attachments to a folder and work from there. The problem is the "Save Attachments" feature in EN always drops me at My Computer, and I have to pick my drive, then Users\myusername\documents\blah\blah\blah. It would be nice if EN did one of the following: Allowed a default "Save to" location in settings Remembered the last "save to" location and started from there Used a totally different API and pulled the Windows Vista/Windows 7 Explorer view that gives you a location of Favorites and Libraries to quickly get to where you need to go. I think the third would be easiest to implement and would also cause EN to behave as most other Windows apps.
  4. 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!
  5. For Windows users who use Outlook to schedule their day, the Outlook add-in, gSyncit from Fieldston Software may be of interest. With the latest version of this tool you can create Task items in Outlook from your Evernote notes. As I review my notes in EN, I move those that I need to tackle tomorrow into a dedicated EN notebook, having set reminders on the notes. The gSyncit add-in in Outlook is configured to read the EN notebook that I specify and create Task items in Outlook for the date(s) in question. So, when I look at my Today vioew in Outlook, I see the list of Tasks generated from my EN notes in my To Do list and can schedule them within the day. No need to create the Tasks manually. The content of the EN note appears in the body of the Outlook Task. gSyncit also synchronises other apps with Outlook. It can sybc your Outlook calendar with your Google calendar, so once you#ve scheduled the Tasks that were created from your EN notes, they will appear in your Google Calendar. As well as Evernote and Google, gSyncit also has options to sync with Toodledo, Dropbox, Simplenote, Nozbe and Pocket Informant Online. Worth a look if you use Outlook on your Windows desktop as well as using mobile devices.
  6. Hello EN Community! I'm reading about The Secret Weapon to GTD. It sounds great to filter by tag on the desktop version of EN (Windows), but this doesn't work so well on mobile apps, specifically the Android app. It takes way too many taps to filter with "when" and "where" tags. I've seen some workarounds to this (creating a notebook for "where" instead of a tag) but do you guys have any other suggestions/ways to mold TSW to work better with the Android App? Thanks!
  7. I really like the webbased free version of Kanbanflow. it just has columns which can be labeled with each column being able to list tasks , subtasks, and easily move them about. The whiteboard visualization is the key to its neatness. is there any app that has this with Evernote integration? (The 'table' in Evernote is not powerful enough for this.) thanks wbriggs
  8. Hi, Mi name is Jorge. I am one of the founders of zendone. Evernote plays a very special role in zendone but we have never announced it officially in this forum. Today we are fixing that. About zendone zendone is a task manager based on Getting Things Done® (GTD®) that integrates with Evernote and Google Calendar. It is based on 3 principles: It is faithfully based on the the GTD workflow and vocabulary.It tries to use the right tool for the job: zendone features a sophisticated integration with Evernote and Google Calendar to make the best usage of both for implementing GTD.It is crafted to be simple and beautiful.Your data is stored in the cloud. We offer A web application. It has been crafted to offer a desktop-like experience.A native iPhone appA native Android appAbout our approach to GTD GTD defines a clear vocabulary and workflow. For example: You inbox contains collected stuffAn action is a well-defined commitmentWhen you process your inbox you transform the collected stuff into an organized systemA project is an outcome that requires more than one action to be achievedActions that are not to do by yourself should be stored in a waiting for list.Since we started with zendone, we wanted to design it for GTD-power users. In our opinion, when you use a general-purpose tool for implementing GTD you necessarily have to use workarounds (for example, an Evernote tag that starts with an underscore represents a project). An important aspect of zendone is that we built a User Interface that speaks GTD, no workarounds or conventions needed. For example, in GTD you manage contexts for filtering what to do next in the Do stage. In zendone you will see a list of GTD contexts to filter by in the Do section. The mapping is direct, and that makes implementing the workflow much more easier. About the way we use Evernote Evernote plays a crucial role in zendone. zendone is about GTD, and GTD recommends 2 core practices: Collecting all the things that enter your world that might represent something you have to do.Keeping an archive of things that are not actions but that you want to keep as , as well as an archive for stuff related with your actions and projects.In zendone: Your default Evernote notebook is your GTD inbox. That means you can use all the Evernote apps out there (official and third-party) to collect stuff in zendone. Keeping your mind clean by collecting everything that enters your world is a core GTD practice. In zendone you can just use the best collecting system out there. Evernote is also your archive. In zendone, Evernote will store all your not actionable stuff that you want to keep as reference, and also all the reference material you need to keep attached to your actions. With this scheme: You collect everything into EvernoteYou process your stuff in zendone. Processing your inbox means emptying your default notebook in Evernote. Going from stuff to an organized system. Notes that are relevant are kept in your archive in Evernote. Seeing how your default Evernote notebook/inbox gets emptied feels great!zendone will keep your whole GTD system, so that you can review it periodically.And every piece will be where it belongs, your trusted system will be organized. Your archived stuff in Evernote. Your inbox, actions, projects, contexts, areas of responsibility and GTD lists in zendone. And zendone will keep everything synced and working seamlessly.The integration with Evernote is bidirectional If you update some note in Evernote, the note will be updated in zendone.If you update the description of some action or some inbox item, the changes will be propagated to Evernote.If you write some description for a given action in zendone, a new Evernote note will be created for holding them.zendone lets you create_actions directly from Evernote.And also attach existing existing Evernote notes to actions. About the way we use Google Calendar In zendone, Google Calendar is your GTD calendar. As with Evernote, the integration is bidirectional: When you create an action with a due date in zendone, the corresponding event is created in GCal.When you create an event in your zendone calendars in GCal, a new action is created in zendone.This means that you can use the powerful GCal notifications system for your actions. For example, receive an SMS the day before the corresponding due date. Pricing Free version: It limits the monthly synchronization to 30 Evernote notes and 30 GCal eventsPremium version: $50/year or $5/mo. It doesn't have syncing constraints, includes printing lists of actions and will remove the zendone branding at the footer.All the plans include 1 month of premium-like trial. No credit card required. For more details you can visit our pricing page. About us We are an small and bootstrapped company which members work from London and Madrid.

  9. Potentially obvious (but only if you already knew!) but nonetheless interesting piece on the Verge.
  10. Hi, If you've been looking for a GTD solution that's tightly integrated into Evernote - check out Informant, it might be what you're looking for. What's it do?

Informant provides convenient time saving shortcuts, and because everything is stored in Evernote you can access it everywhere at any time! The Big News - 25% Off! I'm really pleased to announce that Informant is going live with a bunch of great new features and improvements, which are detailed in my blog entry.

  11. Hello guys. I've read about GTD and am starting to use Evernote to help me handle my tasks. I used http://lifehacker.com/5892905/the-secret-weapon-combines-gtd-and-evernote-into-one-synchronized-productivity-system tutorial to create tags to manage notes. The only thing I'm missing, is a way to better handle timely tasks. Let's say I have a doctor meeting scheduled for a given day and time. When I schedule it, I'll put it into 'Later', 'Waiting' or even a 'Scheduled' tag. What I'd like, is that when the scheduled day come, that note to be moved from that tag to the 'Now' tag. The benefit of it is that I can keep future tasks out of my view, all together in a specific tag, and at the same time not need to waste time keeping track of the day I'll have to handle them, because it will be handled for me. I've seen some apps that integrate Evernote to Google Calendar, but that's not what I want. I can keep it all inside Evernote. What I want is an app to check dialy for reminders, and add notes to a given tag when tueir reminder date is today. As a minor feature, it would also be cool to have notes scheduled for current week to be added to a second tag, just to remember me something is coming. Anyone knows an app that does something like that?
  12. Hi Evernote community. I came to share my Evernote main "desired" features. Do you agree this features are worth? If so share your opinion, so Evernote employees can think in include it on their roadmaps. Thanks! 1. Boomarks, Headings and Table of contents implementation I use more, and more Evernote to GTD, and in that process I tend to create long notes. So bookmarks, Headings and Table of contents are essential to quickly organize a note and jump between sections. That for me in general are: “To Do” itens, References, Logs (actions done, contacts made, etc). This something that Microsoft Onenote put Evernote apart. I use Onenote in work, and now with they have synchronization and multiple clients, I must confess I am very tempted to switch. For me this is a game changing feature. I now, we could create several notes, and put links in one major note, but for me, this only bring sprawl of notes, and mean for work to manage notes, and GTD. I like have all content, specially of a Task Note in the same note. But when notes are big, they become difficult to use without at least bookmarks. 2. Can have several Evernote “Main” Windows I tend to make several searches, or to organize multiple notebooks, so have several Main Windows in the desktop client , like we can have in Onenote would be a great. This can be done with the Web client, but sometimes we simply don’t have Internet access. 3. Template Integration I now there are techniques to get this done and even 3th party apps. But I want integrated. In particulary in Task Notes I tend to use always the same structure in notes, to Note Templates would be a great I manage do this in my work Outlook, and my productivity went up. 4. Template Integration I now there are techniques to get this done and even 3th party apps. But I want integrated. In particulary in Task Notes I tend to use always the same structure in notes, to Note Templates would be a great I manage do this in my work Outlook, and my productivity went up. 5. Rules definition I redirect a lot of emails to Evernote to archive it, but first I want tag it. When I finish a task I tag it with ".done" and move it to other notebook (archive). For now all the above tasks, must be done manually, but it would be awesome if we could create rules, that allow do this automaticly. It would be a lot of saved time. At least a Quick Steps, like in Microsoft Outlook.
  13. I use Evernote to implement GTD. The first thing you need to do is to set up 11 notebooks in Evernote which will be the basis for your trusted system. In Evernote create the following notebooks: - Unprocessed – the default folder where unprocessed items will go (make sure to add the – ) Agendas – lists of things to discuss with individuals Areas of Focus – lists of big picture items that are your “North Star” to guide you Calls – list of the calls you need to make Errands – list of next actions you need to do outside of your home or office Home – list of next actions you have to physically do at home Next Actions – list of the next action you need to do in order to drive your projects towards “done” Projects – list of desired outcomes that require more than one action to complete Reference – list of items that you want to keep for future reference Someday/Maybe – list of ideas that you’d like to work on someday, but not committing to right now Waiting For – list of items that you have delegated or are waiting for someone else to do something Check out my blog GTD for CIOs at www.gtdforcios.com to see how I use Evernote to implement GTD. How are you using Evernote for GTD?
  14. Hi Evernote and GTD lovers, I'm Karol, the CEO of OneMln, the developer of www.everdo.it I've started this thread as we will soon be launching our 2do and calendar app that synchronizes with Evernote. It reads your notes and allows to process them in EverDo.it. EverDo.it allows creating tasks / events out of notes or part of them. It also allows you to put an event / task to your calendar. The iPad version will be available this month. iPhone and Android in January and February. So to sum it up - EverDo.it adds the GTD experience to Evernote :-) You're all invited to comment on our GTD app for Evernote lovers Would really appreciate your feedback! What kind of features would you expect? What are your wishes? Regards, Karol
  15. How do I specify which notes/notebook appears when I first open Evernote?
  16. Hey Guys, There are new and efficient ways of reading stuff then having long notes to go trough. Fast reading apps like http://velocireaderapp.com/ deliver content in a new way. It would be a huge benefit for Evernote users to have the possebility on mobile devices to send the text of a note to another app to read it there. Today in Evernote it's only possible to send an SMS, twitter, facebook, email. With the posebility to send the text to an fast reading app the backlog of stuff to read - which store all Evernote users in Evernote - would shrink. In my opinion a must have feature (at least for pro users and GTD heros). Greetings JJ
  17. Hey Evernotians! You simply must build an integration tool for Finish or some other form of similar reminder tool. it needs to be pretty flexible to set up so whatever form of daily/weekly/lifely reminder set up a give Evernote user has in place can be connected to the reminder system easily. Finish is huge and you incredible people can distill that approach to reminder management into some kind of tasty green interface that will, again, instill great loyalty, love and enthusiastic proselytization for your products and services. PLEASE, I don't need to integrate another tool into my external brain! I want you to do it! I will give you money! Mike connector of dots
  18. Seems Nozbe added Evernote Reminders sync today in version 1.9. I'm curious at how their project sharing is now set up - apparently the people you share your projects with can participate without having to sign up for a Nozbe account themselves. Interesting and tempting. I'm giving it a one month trial - anyone else intrigued? Nozbe 1.9 - share and stay alert to get your New Year's Resolutions done
  19. I'm sure this has been beat to death here, I've read lots of posts on GTD here. I just now read the book after attempting to implement on my own. Now I'm sold and working to gain some control. I currently use the heck out of Evernote clipping and storing stuff, but not for actions, todo's etc... I've been using Pocket Informant on my iphone and ipad and really like the calendar part, it also has a todo section that you can select GTD as the task format. It has contexts, tags, etc, etc.... I'm struggling whether to use Evernote as collection and then transfer actions to PI for reminders, etc and how that would work... Any input would be great and appreciated... MG
  20. Hello, Ive been working on a photo guide of how I use Evernote for GTD. Let me know what you think. Make sure to see the PDF for am overview of the parts, and below for how I use it. I find this system to be easy, intuitive, and simple, and I like the lack of punctuation in the saved searches Collect: Everything goes into the Inbox Process/Organize: Every actionable item goes into Workflow. Projects are tagged with !Project, and an Area of Focus tag Next actions are tagged with a context Waiting items, someday/maybe tagged accordingly Every non-actionable item goes into Reference. Items are tagged with either an Area of Focus, or an Interest tag This is really nice because I can select an area of focus, choose workflow and see my related projects, or choose reference and see my material for that AoF. Project support gets its own tag, and so does Calendar support. General Reference saved search contains all the reference items besides the support files, easily viewed A-Z or filtered by Area of Focus. Review The weekly review process is easily done by selecting workflow and organizing by tags, or just selecting all the related tags for the different levels. Do Do it... Evernote Guide.pdf
  21. Hi, I am using GTD in Outlook. How can I implement this in evernote?
  22. There is one major feature which I find missing with Evernote in trying to incorporate my GTD approach in it. Like almost everyone else, I have used numerous applications from Remember the Milk, Toodledo, Wunderlist, Outlook, Todoist. I've now used Evernote for many months & recently switched back to Toodledo only to again realize that I love the flexibility of Evernote and ability to easily search and view different tags, notebooks and specific exactly the tasks I want to see. My issue with Evernote comes in the capture step of GTD. Many times, I come out of a meeting or brainstorming session & I have multiple tasks (10-15) tasks for a given project or sub-project which I would like to quickly create (same context, same project). I love Toodledo from the capture perspective, because it allows me the ease of use of simply choosing the option to create multiple tasks & then type those into one, single text editor, separated by Returns & selecting the same Context & Project, and Toodledo will create a single task for each line that I have typed. This allows me to quickly capture the tasks with the right attributes. (screenshot attached) I wanted to see if Evernote has any plans to add such a feature in order to help support the capture step of GTD. This is the major feature which causes me to want to switch back to Toodledo because it is simply too burdensome to create an individual note for each of my 10-15 tasks and again re-enter the same notebook & tags each time. If there was a way to enter these tasks in mass, it would greatly improve the abililty to capture tasks. I do not like the option of creating checkbox lists within a note because I have no ability to report on the individual tasks and re-prioritize individual tasks within the note at (at an overall context or project level). Does anyone else face the same issue? Is there some tip or trick that I should be aware of in Evernote for accomplishing this that I am missing? Thank you for any input you can provide.
  23. We are about 2 weeks from formal beta-testing of a new service to connect Evernote to your favorite task management app. No longer the need to use inferior task apps that integrate with Evernote or inferior note-taking capabilities in your robust task app. Maintain best of breed capabilities by seamlessly using both. We can't share it all here, but if you'd like to help us make our offering as easy to use and productive as possible, please complete our simple Google form and we'll be in touch in a couple of weeks. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/16nPFDkbdLfK-zK3fOMmET7ryFv4eJy5otL35iSUQ43M/viewform By the way MYN means Manage Your Now (see http://www.michaellinenberger.com/). I've been using it to get to inbox zero for two years. Our new service will hopefully complete the last link in my workflow and that of many others.
  24. Having trying to adapt GTD to my Evernote workflow, I use a lot of special characters (@, !, #) in my tags to define context, time, etc. But when I go to see my tags in the iOS apps, it groups them all together under the first # category. Would be great to have different groupings for special characters like one for @, another for # and so on. One other feature request would be to add the nesting layout that is used in the desktop apps to iOS as well. Right now I have several of my tags nested and when I look for them in iOS, it's all over the place since all the nesting structure is gone. Thanks a lot
  25. Hello, I use evernote for GTD, thesecretweapon. I would like to point at poor multi tag selection in evernote 5 for windows. for example, I hold CTRL, click on 2 tags to select them, they are selected now, that's fine, I am still holding CTRL and now I click on some notebook, to search those 2 tags in this notebook, and boom. My 2 tags get deselected!!!! This is so annoying, in version 4 it was just fine. Then you removed the functionality completely in version 5. And then you made another patch, where you put it back, but poorly. Please fix this.
