Evernote Introduces “Tasks” Feature to Increase Your Productivity
Evernote just announced a new feature called ‘Tasks‘to increase your productivity. The company claims that “Tasks merges content with actions to help users stay on top of their daily lives.”
Evernote Introduces “Tasks” Feature to Boost Your Productivity
So what is it exactly? Well, Tasks is a feature that merges the usual note-taking functions, which were already in Evernote, with new task capabilities. This feature should help you remember things and accomplish more in general.
Evernote says this feature was born as a regular note-taking approach that doesn’t quite work the way it should. A YouGov survey showed Americans rely on to-do lists to get things done, but aren’t happy with the way they’re handling them.
With Tasks, users have a “one-stop-shop to capture information, actions, and decisions” to stay on top of things. This new feature essentially brings Evernote closer to services like Trello and Asana, as you can basically set up your personal projects.
What makes tasks different from classic to-do lists? Well, you can add due dates and reminders on top of everything. It’s basically one of the main features of services like Asana and Trello, to get things done.
You can set five separate reminders for a specific task
Evernote lets you set up five separate reminders for a specific task, and even turn on notifications for that particular task. You can also flag individual tasks, if that helps your workflow.
You can sort your tasks by note title, due date, and flag status, whichever works best for you. You can use these options in the navigation sidebar.
Note that this feature is now available on mobile and desktop. It is available on Android, iOS, Windows and Mac platforms. However, this is an “Early Access” feature, so keep that in mind. Evernote basically tests this feature, but makes it available in the stable version of the application, for everyone.
