Evernote 7.6 - option to view Reminders tab automatically

Idea

I can understand why Evernote split the Notes and Reminder views into two tabs. However I have a ToDo notebook that consists of 100% reminders. The Reminders view is always what I select in that notebook without exception. I also have a few tags that are always reminders without exception. Can you add an option to default it to Reminders tab? Even if it's a hidden view preference or option so it doesn't bother other users.

I can also understand why Evernote split the Notes and Reminder views into two tabs. But I still want to have the original view where I could see both my reminders and my most recent note activity. Is there an option to restore that view? So far, I haven't been able to find it...

I moved this discussion to the feedback/feature-request forum.

Since we're using Macs my solution is to use a script to filter the notes and select preferences.

This is what I use to select views, assign search and sequence preference780256537_ScreenShot2018-11-17at14_18_27.png.5b603fbc6890a3a041f0296019bbb54f.png

     set query string of window 1 to searchQuery

tell application "System Events" to keystroke "|" using {command down, shift down}

end tell

It might be a feature request, and it's kind of saying "Hey Evernote! Your newest feature just made my workflow harder. Help!"

The issue is this: the latest Evernote defaults to showing the notes tab every time (see screenshots). But I have an actions/todo notebook I ALWAYS want to show reminders for. This means I must click twice to show reminders (1. go to notebook; 2. go to reminders tab).

Sure it's an extra click, and it won't kill me. And I understand why Evernote re-organized it, and honestly it looks better. But is there anyone else struggling with the extra click step introduced by the latest update?

If I recall correctly, the process for the previous version was: 2059952732_ScreenShot2018-11-18at22_28_24.png.d53c60f710b2efbb07efe07dc1dfa3e9.png
1.select notebook;
2. select reminders view icon

I'm not clear on how the new process is harder1960414787_ScreenShot2018-11-18at22_37_39.png.ba0c3cd7395652414c859f50d5664dc5.png

edit: the previous version remembered the reminder view selection
v7.6 forgets the view setting after switching to a non-reminder notebook

The key was Evernote remembered whether reminders were visible or not from the last time you were in a notebook. It seems in Evernote 6 they saved that as a preference somewhere in the app. My workflow has been single click for a long time. The Android/Web clients are still single-click (they remember if reminders were open). I just checked both, they still follow the Evernote 6 model of remembering whether the user had made reminders visible.

If you don't believe me, I can find an old Evernote 6 for Mac installer and create a movie to demonstrate. Or you can try the Android/Web client yourself.

I echo the sentiments expressed here -- I also preferred having Reminders visible on startup.  I use reminders to keep "priority" notes at the top of the stack, ordered by date due.  Now they are not visible at all, unless I go seek them out.  I note that Reminders are still at the top of the note stack in the PC and web versions.  I would prefer that Reminders go back to where they were in the previous Mac version; or at least make it a preference option.

Yes please go back to Reminders being visible on top of notes w/in a notebook - not a sep tab. This is driving me so nuts it could be a deal breaker.

Hi. I have been having the same issue.  

I recently noticed, when you're in the reminders view, if you click “filter by tags” to change to a different tag, it will remember that you're in the reminders view.

Also, if you use “Command + J” (on Mac) to navigate from note, notebook, or tags, it will remember that you're in the reminders view.

Before I figured this out, I would usually use the shortcuts panel for navigating. 

Hope this helps.

I tested this  by 

  1. Navigating to All Notes -> Reminders in the Mac app
  2. Then I pressed cmd + J  and selected "inbox"  
  3. Then I switched back to "All Notes" expecting it to open reminders tab
  4. It opened the Notes Tab :(

Everyone is going to have their own preference on how to display reminders, but I think most would agree it they are important enough to always have at least a link to them visible in the user interface for one-click access. 

This could be done 

In the sidebar 

In the top menu bar 

or ( not my recommendation ) have a dedicated "reminders" panel / pane . if you have user the Chrome developer tools, the Reminder pane would be one of those panes.
