  1. I love the ability to create tasks using the bracket functionality [], but it doesn't seem to be working when importing via email! This would be huge if my wife was able to send me an email list of stuff like...[] milk[] bread[] cereal...and it would just be a task list for me.
  2. I have seen many others post in the forums before on how they are using tasks, or why they don't use Evernote tasks. I have gone back and forth on this for quite some time. I think I have finally settled that my process in a work in progress, but one that works for me. I thought I'd share. Rather than re-post the whole article.. check out the post. http://www.torgersons.com/detailed-routine-using-evernote-for-tasks-and-tracking/
  3. I love using evernote but the reminders feature is very poor. It feels very much like an addon rather than a true feature. I use evernote for everthing and would love to get rid of using e.g. calendar and tasks in outlook and focus on Reminders in Evernote. Some of the issues. 1. the reminders don't have an easy way to switch off/cancel when its been seen. E.g. it stays as a red mark on the app. Often I don't want to delete the whole note just to get rid of the red reminder icon. 2 I would also have a shortcut into reminders from email or the other webapps such as the @XXX feature that is added when you want a note to go straight into a specific folder. I believe reminders can be a much more powerful tool 3. Reminders could also have multiple options for saving at different priority levels.
  4. Hello, I have recently subscribed to the premium version of Evernote and loving it everyday. However got a feedback to the team which I feel will help the users. That is on the to do tasks on notes. While Iam able to add the checkboxes on the notes, I feel it will be helpful if the application can add the dates of creating these to do tasks automatically and the date on which they have been marked completed. This I feel will help the users get to know the time taken (in days atleast) for completion of tasks which can help us better plan. This of course can be a configurable item at the set up level. I look forward to see if this can be taken up by the dev team. Regards
  5. I'm using the Evernote for almost everything for example my job, college and others. One thing I realized as improvement would be a way to minimize tasks within created notes, for example: The notes are very extensive Today, the tasks are like this: (everything is mixed) : What I propose is to increase a way to clear space on the notes screen, minimizing tasks that do not need to be seen but that must be maintained. For example: Minimized tasks If we would to see again the tasks, just maximized them again: I hope that you help me. Thank you
  6. Hi All, I'd like to know if you use some strategies to manage the status change from "to do" things to "done" things. I mean, if you have to pay a bill how do you change the status from "to be payed" in "payed" when you really make the payment? Do you use two different tags? To avoid using too many tags (two for each action) I tryed putting the "completed" tag once the action has been done and completed. What about when I need to do different actions on the same note? If one action is tagged as "completed" what happen for the other one that is not completed yet? For example, if I have to pay and print a bill, once I payed it and not printed yet which status the tag "completed" refers to? Thank you
  7. I use evernote on my laptop and iPhone 6S and have a default Notebook "action pending". I use it for to-do items and have over 1000 notes in there. When I am away from home, and have a few minutes, I like to sort them out on my iPhone, and like to start at the bottom. However, to get there I have to do about 25 swipes if they are sorted by 'Date Created'. It would be great to have a feature to quickly jump to the bottom of the list.
  8. I just read the book "Work Clean..." which explains the chef system of mise en place as a model for productivity and task management. I am thinking it could easily be implemented in Evernote and am curious if anyone has tried yet. There is an app specifically for this system, but I am determined not to use yet another app for task management.
  9. Hello all One of the most powerful details with Evernote for me is the fact that I can add the todo tasks inside the notes I take. This turns out to be so helpful later as I can just run a "todo:false" search across all my notes and get a nice list of things I need to follow up on. Now, to take this one step further, it would be nice to be able to add simple priorities to each tasks so that I could run a query on Prio 1 tasks. A simple categorization of Prio 1, Prio 2, Prio 3 would already do it for me. No need to make it too complicated. Let me know what you guys think about that. Thanks, Markus
  10. For a couple of years now I have used Remember The Milk as my task manager of choice. My annual subscription is coming up for renewal shortly, so I wanted to see what other alternatives might be out there before I sign up for another year. The "killer feature" of RTM for me has been it's integration with Evernote Reminders. If I add a reminder to a note in EN, it automatically becomes a task in RTM. I find this incredibly useful if I want to mark a note for follow up or an action of some type in a few days or weeks. I did try Evernote for a little while as a task manager, but it was a bit too cumbersome for that purpose, so I wanted to use something built specifically for task management. (Aside from task management, I use EN for practically everything. Are there any other task manager apps/systems out there which work so seamlessly with Evernote reminders? Ideally, I'd rather not have to have to use some kind of intermediary like IFTTT, but something which has a feature designed to work with EN reminders. Two other features I would look for would be the ability to add reminders via Siri, and an Apple Watch app, but Evernote integration is more important that these.
  11. I was surprised not to find this feature request listed in this forum (apologies if I missed it). I tried many ways to use Evernote as a task manager including linking it to Toodledo or other similar apps but could not get it to work properly and efficiently so today, I use Evernote as well as Toodledo separately. It would be great if I could just use Evernote for notes and task list which should at least have the following features: reminders, recurrent tasks, sorting and filtering, notes of course, due dates.
  12. Hi folks. I'm new here. I've read all the help articles and forum posts and understand that I can have notes with TASKS in them, and I also understand that I can TAG notes. What I am looking for is a solution for the following scenario: I am taking meeting minutes. Out of a 2 hours meeting, I have 5 tasks (marked as such). I now go to a different meeting, so open a new note and take the meeting minutes, and in that meeting, I have another 4 tasks, which I embed right into the meeting notes (I do not have a separate note just for tasks). I'd love to be able to at the end of the day, search for all tasks not-yet-completed. In other words, I want to embed my tasks in my notes and have be required to keep a separate note just for tasks. Is this possible? Thanks -Ed

  15. I've reached the conclusion that Evernote is a dream for collecting, note-taking and archival (of some things), but I don't want to use it for task management - I've been doing so, just to avoid re-entering data in another app, but it's not a fit for me. I guess I actually like to use it the way its creators intended - as an "external brain" that collects data and eventually stores it long term. But I want to work with/through that data outside of Evernote. What I'm looking for is a system that lets me import things from Evernote and then use them as I see fit. Zendone is too focused on "inbox zero", which isn't quite how I work. Because I'm incredibly picky about my to do management (I want reminders and due dates on some things, not on others, I need notes, I need web and iPad support, etc.), I'm not asking you guys so much to find me a tool as to let me know if I'm missing an easier method of accomplishing what I want. I've looked at task management apps that accept emails since EN can send that way, but very few keep the body of the email, and those that do strip the HTML which is a problem if the body contained research links necessary for the task (then I have to go hunt them down in EN anyway). I've looked at Zapier and IFFFT, but they don't seem to have any options that will work. If I have to cut and past from EN into something else, then I guess I will. It just seems like there really ought to be tools out there to make this happen more automatically. There are so many apps that allow you to send to EN, but very few that fetch from it - or even do a good job of handling emails sent from EN.
  16. This is my first post, hope I've posted in the correct section. So I've recently gotten into Evernote and its power I am a student. I would like to use Evernote to organise both school and personal stuff. For school, I have subjects like biology, physics, math, etc. Then I do some personal projects like programming and playing with my Raspberry PI, stuff like that. I want to use Evernote to organise them. I did it with a notebook for school and personal then using tags to organise, but I want to have a consistent layout in my task management app, which is Wunderlist, I use it extensively already and most of my tasks are on there. However it only allows me to organise tasks into folders which contains lists and I am unable to replicate my setup in evernote. I would like to be able to find individual projects. (I have many History projects and would like to go to them easily..) I also need a method to archive projects or at least organise the notes by year Can someone give me a suggestion? Thanks
  17. are there any tools that will transfer outlook tasks to evernote, converting categories assigned to each task to a an evernote tag? i am running into three issues with all the tools i have found so far. manual - but i have 2,700 tasks they don't handle large task notes they don't maintain categoriesthanks in advance, les
  18. I've been using Evernote for a couple of years now, but I've got a new project coming up where I'm going to need pretty thorough tools for -making ToDo lists -making tasks done lists (diary) Any suggestions?
  19. So I'm looking for a way I can keep track of all the tasks I need to accomplish and thought maybe Evernote could help. It seems I have a couple options. 1) I can make one Notebook called Tasks (or whatever) and then just have one Note called Task List. I could then just list out all the tasks with checkboxes and check them off when I'm done. If I wanted to keep the old ones so I could refer back to them I'd eventually end up with a huge list but could see what I had done, what was next to do, etc. 2) I can make one Notebook called Tasks and then create a separate Note for each Task. I would then probably have to make a second Notebook called Completed Tasks (or something like that) and then I'd have to move them from one notebook to the other when it was done. (or maybe I could just use a "completed" tag when they were done. hmm) I'm just wondering how most people use this and what you've found works better or worse than other solutions. Thanks for any input.
  20. Hi! I use evernote at work. I take notes during meetings, presentations, or for my own thoughts. My note pages are built with text, ink, pictures, audio, and tasks lists. However, at the end of the day, I want to review all the tasks I noted during the day. It would be really helpful to find some sort of way to aggregate all the tasks located in multiple notes into one list. I have searched third party applications to do that but they only seem to manage reminders. Since I don't use reminders, it's not usefull. Anybody has an idea?
  21. Seems redundant to create a task, and assign a date/time to it, but the separate note just takes up space on my screen, whatever platform I use. Am I missing a need for this? Maybe have an option to turn off separate notes? I just don't get it.
  22. 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!

  23. 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!
  24. 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.
  25. 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. We advance slowly but steadily: We were finalists in the first Evernote conference celebrated in the summer of 2011We started our private beta in October of 2011 and our public beta in the middle of 2012In 2013 we released our premium plans and our official apps for iPhone and AndroidWe have a healthy and active community of users who have already processed over 6 million of Evernote notes. In our forums you can find passionate GTD users discussing about the method and about zendone. There are already thousands of comments posted. We listen and we love to interact with our users. Thanks to our community we have changed our mind about different features more than once and we are very thankful for that. You can find more about us in: Help docsBlogTwitter (@zendoneapp) and FacebookAnd of course, you can try zendone now.
