Set Reminder for Day Only Without Hour:Minute

Idea

I'd like the ability to set a reminder for a specific day without setting the hour:minute for that reminder.

I use reminders as "tasks". Nearly all of my tasks are set by day rather than hour:minute.

Such a feature would all user to use third-party apps like Cronofy's Evernote Calendar Connector to see reminders as "All Day" events which would make them much more legible in various calendar clients.

I use time 00:00.  This works for my calendar sync (Mac Script).

Thanks DTLow. On MacOS and iOS clients does not appear that we're able to set a reminder with time 00:00.

Any ideas how to accomplish that?

That would suit my needs for sure in Mac.

Unfortunately, on my Mac, when I change time to 00:00 it automatically reverts to 08:00 every time. Won't hold the 00:00.

I'm using Version 7.5.2 (457164 Direct) and MacOS Mojave 10.14. (Also, FWIW noted that the date format in your screen shot above is not available in my Evernote preferences.) 

Any ideas?

Your date/time format choices are tied to your Mac settings409040673_ScreenShot2018-10-14at18_16_06.png.1d3ebf8388a1fabc5ef2d093b6841060.png

Thanks for that. Never had the need to change the date formats but happy to know how if needed.

Now, back to the issue at hand...

Any ideas re what I might look for to get Evernote for Mac Version 7.5.2 (457164 Direct) to accept 00:00 as a valid time w/o reverting to the 08:00am default?

Note: I've found that the Evernote web will hold the 00:00 time which is good but won't help my workflow. Incidentally ,noted that setting to 00:00 on the web app simply sets the reminder for 12:00am which doesn't achieve my goal of showing reminders as "All Day" events on my calendar.

You'll have to address that with your calendar sync service.
I use scripting on myMac (Applescript)

I also use a script to set the reminder date/time.540743959_ScreenShot2018-10-14at20_28_36.png.2c508da6ac6872730297fff33cd7a2e5.png

Well, I'm now able to set times to 00:00 on the Mac client. Turns out you lead me to it, set Mac time format to 24 hour and hours format to 00-23. So that's done - sincere thanks for getting me there!

Doesn't look like the feature request I've made (allowing for all day reminders within Evernote so I'll start exploring creating a script. Don't want to ask for more from you - you've been great! but any tips on that front would be most welcome.

Again, thanks for all the help!

I've posted scripting documentation at https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/112316-scripting-on-a-mac-applescript/

Here's a sample of the calendar code I use for my daily journal note.

tell application "Calendar"
     
run
     
set theSummary to "Journal " & yyyy & "/" & mm & "/" & dd
     
tell calendar "Evernote"
          
set theCalendar to make new event at end of events with properties {summary:theSummary, start date:current date + 1 * days, allday event:true, url:noteLink}
      
end tell
      
activate
end tell

Funny, I had just found your scripting post when the alarm when on for this post. ?

Awesome. I'll dive into all this. Thanks again for the great help here. Much appreciated.
