Evernote Reminders...Part 2


You can find my first post here:  How I Process Death Certificates Using Evernote Reminders

To day we will look at different ways to sort and view your reminders.


If you click on Notes this will give you all of your notes in Evernote (#1 in the image above) and it will also give you a list of all of your reminders (#3 in the image above).  If you click on the cogwheel (#2 in the image above) you will find your options for sorting your reminders (see the image below.)


I believe the default is to sort them by notebook but you can also sort by reminder date (in image below)


In the image below they are sorted by upcoming reminders in each notebook.


In the image below they are sorted by reminder date showing all upcoming reminders but not by each individual notebook.  This is the way I prefer to see mine.  You can also choose to show any recently completed reminders.


You can also view your reminders from within individual notebooks.  The image below is my Genealogy To Do notebook in my Genealogy stack.  You can see the list of reminders above the notes in this notebook.  The same cogwheel is there for you to sort your reminders.


You can also search for notes with reminders using Evernote's powerful search feature.  To find any note with a reminder that has been completed in the last 7 days you would use reminderDoneTime:day-7.  In the image below is my one note completed in the last 7 days.  You can see the date that the reminder was completed by the alarm icon; the date has a line through it (the green box to the right of image below.)

reminderOrder:*             -- gives all notes with a reminder
reminderTime:day          -- gives all notes with a reminder for today
reminderTime:day+7     -- gives all notes with a reminder in the next 7 days


I have not used Evernote's search feature very much with reminders so I am sure there are other ways to search for reminders that contain certain tags etc.

My next post will be about viewing your reminders on your calendar...I LOVE this!

Until next time...happy ancestor hunting!
