Evernote, the productivity app that lets you remember everything and accomplish anything, today announces the debut of its latest new feature: Tasks. Tasks finds and manages the action items that help people stay on top of their daily lives, achieve meaningful results, and accomplish what’s most important to them.
Tasks is now available in Early Access across mobile (iOS and Android), desktop (Windows and Mac), and web apps. As an Early Access release, customers on every Evernote plan are invited to use all Tasks features up until its release in General Availability, provide feedback, and explore how Tasks can streamline their own workflows.
A new survey from YouGov conducted for Evernote found that more than half (52 percent) of Britons keep an ongoing list of things they need to accomplish, such as tasks, errands, and projects with women more likely to have a to-do list (61 percent) than men (43 percent). 74% of respondents said they are still managing their task lists on paper i.e. diary/journal, notepad and post-it notes etc however the majority (59 percent) feel their current method is only somewhat effective in helping them to get things done.
With Tasks, Evernote merges content with actions to help users remember and accomplish everything on their to-do list. Starting with a user’s existing notes—the very foundation of Evernote’s success—and integrating tasks directly into those notes supercharges the utility of both notes and tasks. Notes are instantly actionable and to-dos have all the context needed for task completion, making it easier than ever to gain clarity and control over everyday life—whether for work, family, or oneself.
Users now have a single place to capture information, actions, and decisions needed to stay on top of it all. Use Evernote to:
- Streamline workflows. When notes and tasks live together, no need to decide what goes in notes vs a task manager or to-do list.
- Know what has to get done every day and why.
- Set deadlines and get reminders so the right tasks surface at the right time.
- Use alerts to prevent tasks from getting lost in the daily shuffle, even when Evernote is not in use.
- Flag what’s important so efforts can be focused on what matters most.
- Get a summarised view of every to-do, or a big picture look at the full context of a project.
- Work your way. Designed to fit unique workstyles, people can sort tasks by note, due date, or flagged status, and use filters to see across information.
- Get any changes to tasks updated instantly across every view and on every device.
