Evernote adds task management tools for personal projects
What does Evernote have in common with Trello and Asana? Before today, not much. But now, you can use the once king of note-taking apps to manage personal projects by introducing a new feature called Tasks. Part of the difference between this tool and your average Evernote to-do list is that you can add due dates and reminders to it. In the latter case, you can attach up to five separate tasks to a single task, and you can turn on notifications if you want to get alerts outside of the app. If you want to be more organized, you can also mark individual tasks.
A new interface you can access from the navig
ation sidebar allows you to sort your tasks by note title, due date and flag status. Additionally, you can add, edit and check them off directly from this view, and filter them using specific date ranges and the like. Any changes you make here will be instantly reflected throughout the app, and you can tap on the title of a note to navigate directly to it.
Before Evernote officially adds tasks later this year, it allows everyone to test the feature by downloading the latest version of their application. After the trial period is over, some functions in the task will only be available to paying customers.
