Using Evernote reminders to manage tasks

Reminders are a great way to keep track of notes that contain time-sensitive information or notes that you need in order to accomplish tasks.

Set a reminder for any note by opening the note and clicking or tapping the reminder icon.

For time-sensitive reminders, you can also add a date and time.



Reminders appear in a to-do list pinned at the top of your note list where they can be sorted, marked as complete, and more.

Once you've completed a task associated with a reminder, check it off in the reminders list. Checking off a reminder does not delete the original note. To check off a reminder, simply click the checkmark, or swipe to the left and tap the reminder icon on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
