Hi guys,

How can I synchronize the Apple Calendar with Evernote? Thank you for help me. 

You are going to need to google around to see what fits. There is no direct tool for this. Used to be Sunrise would do both Evernote and Apple but MS purchased it and is in the processs of killing it.

IFTTT has some Evernote/Reminder integration, and Outlook on iOS will do Google calendar and Evernote reminders. The Evernote App Center has some apps that will integrate Evernote with various calendars, but I'm not seeing one that works with Apple Calendar. They all seem to favor Google, even Nozbe which has a Mac app focuses on Google Calendar.

I use Cronofy Calendar Connector to sync my reminders

Cronofy works well for me. I also use an app called 2do and just stick the public link for Evernote into the reminder (workaround but doable). I sometimes use Nozbe as well but it doesn't play well with Apple calendar.

Is there any other solution?  I love fantastical but am really missing the evernote reminders in it.

filterize looks promising, but their instructions are pretty vague.  Not sure how to accomplish this "Afterwards, you can copy the calendar link and put it into your calendar application. Now all your reminders are visible beside your calendar entries." in icloud.

I tried Cronofy, but decided to implement my own solution with scripting on my Mac

>>I tried Cronofy, but decided to implement my own solution with scripting on my Mac

I use scripts on my Mac to control my notes metadata.  
Things like templates, title, tags and calendar entries..

The code (Mac Applescript) for calendar enties is simple.  
The example below is executed when generating my daily journal note

tell application "Calendar"
        run
        tell calendar "Home"
            set theCalendar to make new event at end of events
                   with properties {start date:current date, allday event:true}
            set summary of theCalendar to "Journal " & yyyy & "/" & mm & "/" & dd
            set url of theCalendar to noteLink
        end tell
        activate
    end tell

I'm new to the scripting thing. I do this in Automator as a workflow right?

Automator and other services can launch scripts but you should be looking at Script Editor.app in your Applications/Utilities folder
This provides an integrated editor, compiler. execution tool59c567d6218e9_ScreenShot2017-09-22at12_40_38.png.6a4485d8bc524370eba60fc435da3d4a.png

File > Dictionary shows you the commands available for each application
In the image below, you can see Calendar and Evernote

Will this work if I am creating items on my ipad? I am very frustrated that Evernote does not allow me to have multiple reminders per note. And that it does not sync to my apple calendar. I have been searching for some time to find a way to accomplish this. By the looks of this, this might do exactly what I need it to. however I would need some clarification on how to structure my daily plan in order for this to work. 

Could you please help with this?

It would help if you quote a post when replying.

Cronofy Calendar Connector runs in the cloud and will sync all notes, regardless which device did the creation

>>I would need some clarification on how to structure my daily plan in order for this to work. 

My solution would be to select the text you wish sync'd, then use a Mac script to create the calendar entry

Thanks for the help DTLow. 

I am sorry I am not well versed in writing script. Would you be able to help me? 

 

Basically, as you can see from the image I had posted earlier, I would like my entries in the table above to populate my ICal as I enter them.

I can help you with this.

Are you just starting out with Applescript, or is there specific script questions?

My approach would be to work on separate functions

  • Parsing the data
  • Creating a calendar entry
