importing from Apple's Reminders

Recommended Posts

I want to transfer my lists of reminders from Apple's Reminders app.  How do we export from that file so that it can be imported to Evernote?

I don't believe that there is an automated way of doing this.

 

You can email from Reminders into your Evernote account or do a copy and paste.

You might be able to do this via AppleScript.

Do some Googles on "Reminders Applescript" and "Evernote Applescript"

Screenshots? Might be the quickest way to get multiple reminders in if your primary goal here is to archive. Remember that Evernote can search OCRed images.

 

Something to reconsider: the iOS Reminders app is one of the most useful tools I have in my repertoire. I understand the need for consolidation under one roof, especially since Evernote can remind you of stuff too... but you cannot automate reminder creation in Evernote like you can through dictating to iOS' assistant, Siri. This feature piece of magic is really the best thing since sliced bread, which, when on the go, cannot be reproduced in Evernote, unless, perhaps by an IFTTT (now "IF") recipe/ Zapier integration with iOS Reminders and Evernote.

 

Here is a small sample of reminders I have spoken out just recently:

 

  • "Remind me to check 'Planet of Hats' every Wednesday at 9PM"
    • Automatically creates a recurring reminder as requested
  • "Remind me on Saturday morning at 8AM that I have lunch with Andre"
  • "Remind me in 30 minutes to turn on the air conditioning"
  • "Remind me in an hour to hang up the washing"
  • "Remind me to check the oven in 20 minutes"
  • "Remind me tomorrow morning at 8AM to call for water"
  • "Remind me in 45 minutes to start exercise"

This cannot currently be automated in Evernote via dictation.
