Evernote Reminders are HERE

I am just a little excited to share that today Evernote released a new feature for Mac, iOS and Web….REMINDERS! I have always been a user of the reminders available on my iPhone so when I heard that Evernote was releasing Reminders built into the app I was super excited! Evernote already organises my life, home and work, everything I need to keep track of is in Evernote so Reminders will greatly enhance my organisation!

 

Evernote Reminders allow:

  • In-app and email Alarms
  • Quick note based to-do lists
  • Pinning notes to the top of your note list
From just playing around with Reminders today, I can tell it is quite easy and seamless to use. Just tap on the little alarm clock icon in your note (top corner in Mac and Web, bottom of note in iOS), set a date and time and you are done!
The Evernote Reminders are Notebook based (I am a stickler for having my Notebooks and Notebook Stacks organised ‘just right’ so I love this feature). In the screen shot below you can see how my Reminders are categorised in each of the Notebooks they are set for.

 

Why I think Evernote reminders will work for me-

In the last couple of weeks, I have gone from being in the classroom teaching three days a week to only two. On my three days outside of the classroom I am a Teaching and Learning coach within my school- spending much of my time visiting, planning with and mentoring other teachers and classes of different levels all over my school. Needless to say my job just became a little more hectic. Having to remember which classroom I am due in and at what time, as well as the planning for and teaching of my own class on the other two days- Evernote Reminders could not have come at a better time! For all of these different things I do, classroom visits, planning sessions and my own student assessment, I keep notes in Evernote. Now I can add reminders to my notes! I have just created Reminders for all I want to complete next week and feel so much more organised already!

So excited (I know I said that already!) to see my productivity continue to improve with Evernote Reminders!

How will Evernote Reminders work for you?

  1. Had a question about the last photo in this post! What are you using to lesson plan In evernote ?? I am wanting to try it this year and not sure if I should create a table in Evernote ..or are you using another app to do that? I like the colours included in your format. Also…do you create a new one every time or is there a way to have a template set that I can continue to open up and change the info as needed?? Thanks so much! I’ve gotten lots of great ideas from your site about how to move away from paper!

  2. Hi Renee,

    I created a table in Word (added the colours there) then I just copied and pasted it into my Evernote note. I just copy the whole note and edit it as I need to. 🙂

    Hope that helps,

    Bec
