Long story short I'm having a bit of a clear-out in my rather full database (47k notes) and moving away from having most of my note-eggs in one basket. I've done several searches to bulk-move notes into new locations, and it's just occurred to me that I have some notes in local notebooks - around 500 or so - that if I'm not very careful, might get moved along with the rest. They would go from an offline, this-device-only notebook to a fully synced, available to me from anywhere notebook - and that being in the Cloud, it's a little bit more likely to be leaked. Now my World Domination plans are still strictly on paper (and in crayon) so there's limited risk, but I thought I'd try moving a note that I have selected from a local notebook into a synced notebook to check what alerts come up. And the answer is - none. So my proposal here is that notes saved in Local Notebooks need an additional "Are you sure?" alert before being moved out. Users do put notes in local notebooks temporarily when they run out of upload allowance, and then move to synced notebooks when the allowance reboots. In those circumstances the nanny notice would seriously annoy me when moving in bulk, so we also need the 'don't show this notice again' tickbox, and an entry in Options/ Preferences to allow that to be toggled back as necessary. I think this is a pretty important issue since my notes were offline for a specific reason and I do not want them in the cloud showing account numbers and sort codes. I'll raise it with Evernote and post my ticket number here, but meantime please be aware that notes in Local Notebooks look just like any other note - there's no highlight, no alert or any other sign they're unusual. If you have local notes - take care they stay that way. And please vote this issue - top left of the page! Ticket #2893633
I don't know if you call this a "banner" or what, but I want my Evernote reminders/alerts to pop up big and bold on my phone when they go off, instead of hiding up in the notification bar on my Android phone. Basically, I want them to look like what I see when I get a text message and my screen is locked (I use Textra for texts). I think this can be done on iPhone, but not Android for some reason. Q1) Are there plans in the works? Q2) Would anyone else find this useful? I had a somewhat OK work-around with Sunrise calendar, but that's going away in August. Even the Sunrise notification isn't quite what I'm looking for. I like that it gives one notification for each calendar entry (where Evernote reminders are seen as calendar entries I guess), but I'd like it to show up right in the center of my screener, just like a text message, whether locked or not. The use case is that I use Evernote as a reminder system. I create one note for every task I have to do, and then do a draft version of the work in the note (or attache the docs I need). So when it comes time to do the task, I want that alert to be obvious. I could, of course, keep these in my calendar, but I follow GTD, which recommends using the calendar just for things that have to be done at a specific day/time. So the rest of my next actions go into Evernote. I've tried some of the GTD-specific apps, but their either too slow or too convoluted for me, and I like Evernote's simplicity. Q3) Any other work-around ideas (e.g., can I have evernote send me an email/text on a timer that would pop up the way I want) Q4) Any other calendar apps or similar reminder apps that people are using and work well with Evernote? Specifically GTD-based would be great. Thanks in advance!
