  1. I think I may be asking too much from EN to use it as my To Do/GTD system. As a little background, I've tried most To Do apps - Things, OmniFocus, The Hit List, Taskpaper, Remember The Milk etc. So far, Remember The Milk and Taskpaper seem to have worked out quite well. I'm also in the process of trying to dump as many apps as I can (I have far too many) and shifting as much as I can to Evernote. I already use Evernote for the usual web clips and I scan just about every bit of paper I receive. I also use it for project management to a large degree and for keeping a journal, making use of things like IFTTT to automatically send stuff to EN so I can keep a record of where I've been and what I've done. I'd love to use EN as my To Do list. I've tried various systems mentioned here on the forums and elsewhere on the web (such as The Secret Weapon). I believe all of the systems I looked at are pretty good - if you're sat using a desktop client all the time. I probably spend at least 50% of my time without access to my laptop/desktop, so I'm reliant on a good solid mobile experience (iPhone and iPad in my case). The Remember The Milk iOS apps are great for this, especially with their "quick entry" system. Contrast this with adding a new task to Evernote for task management (assume I'm not already in my "task note" for the purpose of this example): Tap Tags Tap the Tag I created for my To Do Tap the Note where I want to add my new Task Tap the icon to enter Edit mode Enter the new Task Click Done Wait for the Save to complete (can take an age on 3G) Watch in panic as the whole note goes blank before it does a re-load And sometimes (as was the case last night when I was out on a walk and had an idea - I added it to EN on the go over 3G) it simply doesn't save, so the change was lost. Contrast this with RTM: Tap the quick entry text area Enter the task Press Enter All done. Don't get me wrong. I think Evernote is the single best application I've ever used and, as a developer, I've used a LOT of applications However, I feel I'm almost forcing myself to use EN for task management. Am I missing something? I even tried use a really simple list app to use on the go, and then copying the tasks to the right place in EN, but if I'm going to use another app anyway, I may as well just use RTM. Perhaps it's just because I really need a good mobile experience for quick entry and modification of notes, and the current version of the iOS app really isn't very good for that. It's excellent for day-to-day general use, but then it was never designed as a task manager, so perhaps I'm asking too much of it? Nobody's forcing me to use EN for this, of course, but it would be nice to be able to do so and get rid of one more app. There are so many people here offering fantastic tips and suggestions, I'm hoping one of you may say "have you tried..." Any news on the rumoured official Evernote To Do implementation?
  2. 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.
  3. I'd love to see Evernote add the ability to automatically generate a todo list based on all your unchecked checkboxes. There is currently the ability to search for unchecked checkboxes, and to save that search, and then to add that search as a Shortcut - this is all pretty awesome. The result of this is that I get a list of notebooks that include unchecked checkboxes - exactly what I'd expect from a search. What I'd like to see is Evernote automatically generate a "note" that contains, in one stream, all of the unchecked checkboxes in my notes in one view. Context would be critical - both the note the checkbox was in, but also content around the checkbox, so this isn't a slam dunk.
  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. Please find a way to make all text in Moleskine notebooks extractable & importable into other uses/applications (like calendars & To Do Lists). At present, it's supposedly "searchable." However, the search never works for me. This was the whole reason I got the Moleskines & Evernote Premium. As I understand it, it's supposed to only be searchable, and it simply inserts images as a jpg (rather than doing anything with the text.)
  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 create lists of things I need to do. I prioritize my time by reordering the list and removing items when they're done. I want to be able to reorder the list easily using buttons, hotkeys, or drag and drop. This seems like such an easy feature to add to both the web and Windows versions. Reordering lists as priority changes are crucial to my system. Having to copy out of EN into a text editor (notepad++ for me) just so I can CTRL+SHIFT a row up and down and then having to copy it back so that I can view the changes on my other devices leaves me at risk of losing my changes. I copy out, reorder and forget to copy back. For me, checkboxes don't work. If I'm done with a ToDo, I want it out of my view. CTRL+SHIFT+D should delete the current row in the list. If I'm scanning down through my list and I see items that need to be done before the one at the top of the list, I want to be able to move them to the top. Clicking on that line or highlighting any part of any line and pressing CTRL+SHIFT+UP should move the selected rows up one row, CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+UP should move it up all the way. Alternatively, you could drag and drop them.
  8. 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
  9. I just manually converted a large bulleted list into a checkboxed list. It would be great if one could highlight the list and ask that each bullet be converted to a checkbox. Jason
  10. Hi all! Love Evernote! Use it both private as business. Very important for both is the TO DO function! Can't go without it ;-). But...... with all those notes and different TO DO list I lack overview. So who can help me with 2 questions below? 1) How can I make sure my unfinished/unmarked tasks are in the top off the list and the marked are down in one single note? 2) How can I get a total overview of all unfinished/unmarked tasks of ALL notes? So a master view so to speak? This should be the answer according to Evernote but I can't get it to work: list all the notes in your account with unfinished tasks, click inside the search field, select Add search option > Contains, then select 'Incomplete todos' from the list of options. So above does NOT work: who can help me with Q1 and Q2? How can I get a totall overview of ALL outstanding/unmarked/unfinished TO DO items? Thanks!!!!!
  11. I would like to see the following features made available to really make my Evernote Moleskines work for my needsd. 1) I want to be able to draw a to do list (check box followed by task), and then have the ability to take a photo and have it digitally converted to a typed checklist into evernote. I would also like the ability to update this list by checking off or 'x'ing out boxes on my checklists. 2) I would like the ability to tag items in my Moleskine without the need for stickers. Hashtags would be a good solution. 3) I would like to see if these features can be integrated into my MS Outlook (calendars/reminders/to dos) - however, I don't know that this is possible unless they are converted to digital.
  12. Making task and finding task reminders is kind of difficult. I always lose track of my to do list within a note. It would be nice for Evernote to grab anything with the checkmark and place it in a single note or area with in an app. Those checkmarks can then have a header with a link, note link, back to where the original task came from. This would allow me to make many lists and always have a Central location for all my to do items. Right now I have to resort to iOS reminders or other third-party applications. I would love to make Evernote my one and all for all business and personal items.
  13. For the past couple of years, I have relied heavily on saved searches containing "todo:false", and it has stopped working on iOS. The following searches "todo:" "todo:true" and "todo:false" should only return notes with checkboxes, notes with checked checkboxes and notes with unchecked checkboxes, respectively. Instead, they simply return all notes. I'm on v7.9.2.318622. The problem may have coincided with the most recent update, but I'm not sure. Has anyone ever seen this problem? Any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks for your help!
  14. Similar to the windows desktop app. I would like to be able to highlight a bunch of text in my notes and then press a button to make them all checkbox (todo) lines such that the carriage return delimits each task. This is much faster than adding a checkbox for each line. Thanks, keep up the good work.
  15. I use checkboxes to quickly capture information about customers when I'm on calls with them. I would not call this list of checkboxes todos, but more just ways to understand information about a customer. In the screen shot attached you can see a small list of checkboxes that I would either check or leave unchecked based on the results of my call. How can I search on these? Let's say I want to find all customers that have embedded and dashboard checked?
  16. hi, Bewbee who LOVES evernote want to know what is the best app and/or solution to integrate with evernote tags? IFTTT Recepies? Powerapp from wunderlist? Other?? Need to have two way sync and work on "all" devices. Kind regards, Prime
  17. I use EN for everything. And I LOVE it. But I fight with it on my Todos. There's tons of good ToDo apps out there - AnyDo, Wunderlist, and tons of lesser-knowns. Why doesn't EN just buy one and integrate it? Or really open their API up to these other ToDo appps? Why won't EN add real todos? Why won't they add recurring due dates? I am BAFFLED by this. I don't need Evernote cufflinks and socks. I need a ToDo function.
  18. 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
  19. I believe what the normal person (outside the Evernote ecosystem and parlance) would call a "checkbox" is simply called a "to-do" in Evernote, correct? Just making sure I'm not missing anything obvious.
  20. [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.

  21. 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. You can give it a try for free and use a fully functional version of the app for 30 days, no credit card required. * GTD® and Getting Things Done® are registered trademarks of David Allen & Co.

  22. There is a way in which I use Evernote to plan all my tasks. This weekend, I thought I should share it on a blog. http://enblog.posterous.com/
  23. Now with a competition from Google keep and the likes I think Evernote should evolve into a complete productivity Tool with a better checklist/ ToDo type notes so we don't have to use separate ToDo apps and NOTE apps. Some features can be included like : Sorting items in the checklist--MODERATELY Tough implementation Strikeout the items for done checklist---EASY implementation Individual reminders for items in checklist--TOUGH implementationC'mon guys would it be really that hard to implement.??
  24. I love Evernote. But I still can't use it as a ToDo list. Checklists are a bit clunky to be adding and deleting from constantly. Reminders are fine for ticklers, but not as a todo. I use AnyDo right now. I wish they'd merge. Any tips on Todos in En? Any third-party apps you'd recommend? Any idea if EN plans to truly tackle ToDos?
  25. Hi, as we have joined the Evernote DevCup 2013, I would like to invite all of you to a Google Hangout on July 2nd, 2 PM EST (NY). We will present the app and would be more than happy about your feedback. If you are interested, please contact us at: support@smartgtd.com Thanks, Karol
