Change Multiple Reminders at once

Idea

I have 42 notes that I need to change the reminder date on. I have to do it to each one individually. I should be able to select them all and change them all at once.

Now that would be cool! Thanks guys. I love EN.

That would be cool. Meanwhile the best workaround I can think of is to export the notebook, write a script to find and replace the reminder dates (the export should be a single XML file), and then reimport.

Which platform?  

Mass reminder changes is not an Evernote feature, but can be scripted on Evernote/Mac

I'm using Evernote Mac. Can you briefly describe how to script it?

The first step is to select the notes in Evernote

Second,  launch the Script Editor app5a9736810b61e_ScreenShot2018-02-28at15_06_28.png.c614ffe7bd1d4a6fabd7631a45922d34.png
This app comes free with every Mac installation

Enter the commands to execute

  • First statement identifies theNotes as the selected notes
  • Next, a repeat loop to pass through every note
  • Within the loop, the action required - a statement to set the reminder time

Click run ( 5a9737324d091_ScreenShot2018-02-28at15_11_22.png.07f1c9ee10e8016cac7936590f111883.png ) to run the script

  • tell application "Evernote" to set theNotes to selection
    repeat with theNote in theNotes     
         tell application "Evernote" to set reminder time of theNote to date "Monday, January 1, 2018 at 00:00:00"
    end repeat

Excellent idea, I regularly have 10+ reminders to change and it is without exaggerating my only frustration with EV.

Today I have 165 reminders to change but let's not talk about that as I'm not looking forward to it!

Do you know the script to set reminders on the selected notes, but without a due date?

set reminder order  of theNote instead of reminder time

>>I tried this, but it didn't seem to work:

I could have been clearer;   set reminder order of theNote to <value>

This is a date field; current date should work

>>I tried typing in the date a number of different ways, but they were all rejected.

I just ran this script successfully

tell application "Evernote"
     
set theNotes to selection
     
repeat with theNote in theNotes
          
set reminder order of theNote to current date
     
end repeat
end tell

Is there any way to set the reminder without a date?
