Ability to Change Default Reminder Time

Idea

Hello EN community!

 

Is there a way we can change the default reminder time?

On the desktop app, it defaults to something random.

Is there a way I can set the default to, say, 9AM every time I create a reminder?

 

Thanks for your time!

I think if you create a reminder and set a date within the Win app, the default time is plus 1 hour to the current time, not quite random.  If you set the reminder in an email subject, the default time is 8:00 am.  At least that is my experience

8:00am vs. 7:59am - A consistency request

 

Preamble

I forget and cannot right now find where I set the default reminder time (if I did at all and from the two seconds I spent here it looks like it is preset by EN itself) but... on EN Web, my default reminder time is 8:00 am of the day I set it even if that time is earlier in the day. On Android, reminders are automatically set 24 hours after I click to set a reminder. In the clipper, reminders are set for 8am of the day I set the reminder. And on Windows, reminders seem to vary. Sometimes they are set for 8am that day (or the next, too, I think), sometimes an hour later and sometimes 24 hours later. I think I have that correct. I just know that Windows is anything but consistent and it is frustrating.

 

Amble

For now, if and when Evernote ever implements recurring reminders, I like to have almost all of my notes needing reminders to be set at the same time, which is how I came (I now remember) to accept 8am as the default time (the majority of time at least). However, many, many of them show up having reminders of 7:59am, I am (re)setting them for 8:00am. I am not sure how 7:59am is happening because I am not setting reminders for 7:59am. But it would be nice if they were all 7:59am or all 8:00am or whatever I want as the default across all platforms.

 

I have not really sat down to investigate if reminders set on one platform are converted from 8:00am to 7:59am in another platform. After nearly a year I figured that a pattern would emerge and reveal itself. Yet no such pattern has. At least not one without keeping a log. But I do know that this minor issue is distracting at times (like today when it was very much so), and I would like any suggestions on how to go about resolving this issue. Thanks.

 

Postamble

1 Android Lollipop, mobile app auto-updates

2 Windows Pro 7SP1, desktop application auto-updates via ninite.com upon startup

10+ Web, the pre-"new version" accessed in Chrome via 1 Lubuntu 14.04, X Windows 7SP1 Enterprise and 1 ChromeOS

 

P.S. Yeah, I'll get over it now that I've said my peace. Piece?

Happened again. Every note's reminder time set in the wee hours this morning that I've reviewed thus far have changed from (X):00:00 to (X-1):59:59 on another device.

  • I set the reminder times on my Dell laptop having Windows 7SP1 Pro with EN v. 5.8.13.8152 (276152) Public, which was defaulting to reminder times set for an hour later.
  • I am now using my HP desktop to edit/act on notes using Windows 7SP1 Pro with EN v. 5.8.11.8117 (276117) Public where the times are (X-1):59:59.
  • Just checked back with my Dell laptop where times remain (X):00:00.
  • Synced both PCs prior to checking times on a note created this morning with a reminder time set that I had not yet reviewed today.
  • With an existing note that I had reset the time this morning but had not yet touched today, on both my laptop and desktop, the reminder time changed from 8:00:00 to 7:59:59. However, I do not recall if I needed to reset the time on this. I did reset the date and would have ensured that the time was 8:00:00 as I was being extremely OCD about this this morning.
  • For a note that was throwing up conflict errors left and right for which I ultimately copied and pasted from to create a new note, the time remains the same on both machines. I had not yet touched this one either. Hooray! One note's reminder time wasn't altered.
  • Looking for an existing not that I have not yet touched but had edited both the date and timestamp this morning. Found one! Reset this morning from 08:00:00 to 14:00:00 on my Dell laptop. Just checked my HP desktop where the reminder time reads 13:59:59.

Next time I will ensure that both machines are using same version prior to launch to see if that has a positive effect.

I need this feature because I am an early person and I would like to see the reminder notification before I leave my home for work. It seems that on mac os the default reminder time is 8am.
