Appreciate all the ideas. I just don’t think it would be hard for Evernote to give us the ability for the reminder to reoccur and make it simple for everyone.

I'm using Mac OS's Reminders app.  Every Monday it pops up and contains the 'Public Link' to the EN that I need to check on.

Possibly not 'hard' - no way to tell;  there might be a question of why work on this feature now rather than the other thousand or so requests they already have from other users...

Each app that connects to Evernote reduces the security of the system. This is one of those essential things that should be built in. Hope sooner rather than later...

I would like the recurring reminders too. I have a tracking note for my allergy shots and every week, I reset the reminder after I get my shot and I update my log. It would be nice to just have "every monday" as a reminder and not have to change the reminder every time.

It obviously sounds like a "petty" problem but when you see other apps do it all the time, you start to expect it from Evernote as well. I use Todoist, it has this option which is really nice to have.

Why Evernote stands still to this idea? it is so obvious and important, I cannot understand why leave it for competitors, evidently they lack other features that Evernote has, so, at the end of the day, Evernote is close to creating more value and advantage by improving this.  Thanks.

Hi.  It's only possible to repeat such  notes manually within the app - each time one pops up,  change the date to activate the next due time.  'Repeat' is not an Evernote option.  If you receive your Evernote reminders by email,  various email clients have their own built in reminder systems to deal with incoming mails,  and some web services like https://www.followupthen.com/  allow you to forward Evernote emails to that service and receive regular reminders from it.

Most users seem to have a third-party solution - a 'to do' app - that handles repeats as necessary.  Mine's https://ticktick.com/ - I set up tasks,  appointments and reminders there,  but add a note-link back to the details stored in Evernote.

Hello,

I want to know if is posible to repetat a remainder note.

For example "repeat every week" or "repeat everi monday"

Thanks!

Others have expressed interest in recurring reminders as well, and I am one of them as well.

Until that feature, you can try using TAGS for a similar purpose but you will have to be disciplined enough to run those. You can have a tag called DAILY, or MONDAY and you run those saved searches on those specific times.

I use Todoist for those kind of reminders, it takes "every work week" as an input as you type the task in. So if I wanted to remind myself to check the DAILY tag in Evernote, I would create a task in Todoist to remind me every day to run that search inquiry. This would be another workaround if you are not disciplined to run the tag search.

I added FollowUpThen to my process to help manage recurring reminders.  FUT sends reminder emails at an appointed date/time as well as on a recurring basis. 

For example I use !Weekly as a tag for notes I want to review weekly.  I have a note titled !Weekly reminder note.  I set up a Monday recurring reminder in FUT so every Monday morning I get an email triggering me to go to my !Weekly tag.  I include a link to the !Weekly reminder note in FUT so I click on the link in the email and then Shift+Click on the caret next to !Weekly when the note opens in EN.  I have a saved view for the !Weekly tag so that is what appears.  May sound more complicated than it actually is.

Full disclosure,  I also have a reminder on the !Weekly reminder note which I change each week after the review.  So I remind myself two ways, the FUT email (a true interrupt) and my Today search.  May be overkill, but....

I'm an Apple user and use the Calendar/Reminders built into the OS.347781602_ScreenShot2018-05-10at09_24_22.png.d37c4198eb0170576650cc2b34b48fed.png
I like the notifications, device sync, and it allows for repeat reminders.

I do use the Reminders feature in Evernote; I use a script to sync entries to the OS Calendar/Reminders

I could have a fresh note for each todo but that stop me from having a clear view of the whole project on the single overview note that I use.

This solution works for me; a master project note 1447239686_ScreenShot2018-06-24at06_13_14.png.c8dcaf8b01dcbf607a8752cc154d7c3b.png
and separate notes for each task.

For the "clear overview"; add todo note links to the master note

and separate notes for each task.

Thanks DTLow - 

Yes, I sometimes link subnotes to a master/overview note (which can have its own Reminder Date); and using the COPY NOTE LINK ⌃ ⌥ ⌘ C shortcut on the target note cuts out some of the mousing which helps. Though often I have heaps of really brief todos (phone someone at a particular time, book rail ticket between two dates, etc) so this is quite an arduous solution for stuff like that. 

Also, maybe just me but I find a notebook full of To Do notes mixed up with, say, reference/info notes, my own notes, slightly overwhelming and need to manually check to make sure I'm on top of things. The notes can only be sequenced by Date, Alphabetic order of Title, not by Reminder Date. So it takes me more than a quick glance to realise I'm on track. Or not. 

I usually keep Notebooks in Stacks, which gives the useful feature of viewing all the Notes with that have Reminder Dates; and these can be dragged around and ticked off when complete. BUT, I've found the feature to be unreliable: some notes with Reminder Dates do not show up in this view. I've sometimes hacked it back into shape by deleting and reseting the Reminder Date; sometimes this has not worked and I've had to copy the contents of the bad note into a brand new note and reset the Reminder Date. There's been an update since this happened and things have been ok. Maybe that's fixed it. 

But that aside, I probably need to get into the habit of keeping separate notebooks for Project ToDos and Project Information and have the master note linked all in one stack. That would do most of the stuff that I want 

Cheers,

No update.  

Evernote provides a basic reminder feature; a single due date and completion date.  
They have not indicated an interest in expanding beyond this.

Can you please add a default Calendar Notebook just for Reminder functionality that can hold the recurring reminders as well.

I’d like to see reminders as a first class feature baked in Evernote similar to how this new competitor is going about it:

”Glad you asked, this is an area we've very passionate about! We've probably spent half of our development time building todo list features. Our todo lists currently support:
• Fixed recurring todos (e.g., every Thursday at 8pm)
• Snooze / Hide item from list for X time
• Relative recurring todos (e.g., whenever I call grandma, remind me to call her again a month from now)
• Time estimation: optional means to assist Amplenote in estimating priority of task
• Important/urgent designation: optional means to assist Amplenote in estimating priority of task
• "Todo trash" = whenever you finish an item, it's automatically moved to bottom of note, and grouped by day so you can quickly see how much you got done on a per-day or per-week basis

Native reminders are a feature we already have in our UI, but it's not enabled yet. Probably late this month or early January for reminders.”

You're welcome to add your vote to the request; voting buttons are in the top left corner of the discussion.

Personally, I accept that Evernote has provided a basic Reminder feature and make use of it.
For "first class feature", I switch to dedicated apps (Apple Reminders on my Mac and iPad)

(The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails)

>>Snooze / Hide item from list for X time

My practice is to reassign the reminder date

>>Time estimation: optional means to assist Amplenote in estimating priority of task
>>Important/urgent designation: optional means to assist Amplenote in estimating priority of task

Priority is more of a task management item.
I have the same issue.  I generate my to-do list with a saved search, but there is no priority sequence ( search: reminderOrder:* -reminderTime:day+1 -reminderDoneTime:*)
I sort by title sequence, and actual tasks are at the top of the list; tasks are prefixed with +; next actions by ++.  I'm still left with a list of 30 items.

>>but it's not enabled yet. Probably late this month or early January for reminders.”

aka "vapourware"?  😊

I use Apple's Reminder app on my iPhone. It handles recurring tasks / events. Works great.

I'm also an Apple Reminder user for recurring reminders.
I use Apple Calendar for all events.

If appropriate, I add a link to a note in Evernote.
Sometimes the event originates in Evernote.  I have a script (Mac) to generate the calendar entry

Please implement recurring reminders.  One of the reasons I use Evernote is its platform and employer independence.  In other words, I may change employers or my employer may change its collaboration software, say Outlook vs. Google vs. Apple.  I'd like to keep reminders of membership, professional license, and vehicle registration renewals in Evernote.

How and where do you vote? Recurring reminders are important to me.

Mind you, so are a. altering the reminder date on multiple notes simultaneously and b. working out how to change the default time (hh:mm) for reminders - currently set at 8:00 as far as I can see but I would prefer 5:00

Point is if there is a voting mechanism I want to know how to participate and keep an eye on how the votes are all going.

Thank you for your response.  I am a total newb in this area.  Don't have a desktop mac but alternate between my windows desktop, my ipad and (very occasionally) my android phone when using Evernote. Have searched for script on this forum and EN help to little avail.  Could you point me in the right direction?

It would certainly be awesome if this recurring reminder feature can be up this year.

I wanted to uninstall my Google Keep but I had to keep it because Evernote couldn't set recurring reminder :(

Filterize is a great service, with various automation features.

If you're using a Mac, you can accomplish the same reminder reset with scripting (Applescript)

 I already moved my reminders into Google Keep with full integration with Google Calendar

 I still use Evernote for NOTES, not reminders

The main reason I moved my to dos onto Keep it was the fact they can provide the recurring reminders.

But I also understand that Evernote wants to be a note taking app, not a reminder app... so I can live with that

Would be great to have recurring reminders (every day, second day, week, year, etc.). First thing I'll use it for is daily checklists.

A work-around is the Filterize service; I use scripting on my Mac.  This process reviews completed reminders and resets the date if tagged as recurring.

This feature of recurring reminder is so important taking into account the EverBetter program and new templates, like habit tracking 

 

all of these without recurring reminders make no sense 

 

that could be a premium feature if was the case of high developing investment

Till the time Evernote people aren't helping us by adding this, a simple solution is to setup a recurring reminder in your Google Calendar (which I suppose everyone might be using if you dare to plan your stuff on Evernote) which reminds you to check your 'x' notes daily.

Isn't it a simple solution.

But this doesn't mean we don't want the recurring reminders in Evernote. :)

I would like to add to this thread about Recurring reminders.  I currently use Google Tasks for reminding me of clients who have contracts coming due.  The information about the client's contract is in Evernote though. I'd love to be able to set a yearly reminder right in Evernote so I don't have to use any other program.
