Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
You know, the folks at Evernote are continually striving to improve Evernote. That's why in June of 2013, there was an important update including a new feature called Reminders. We're going to take a look at it now. So, if you haven't already updated Evernote, you need to go to your Apple icon here in the top left corner. Go to the app store. You'll see that update available. Click the update button, and once it appears as installed, you can then relaunch Evernote and you'll see something different. It's up here in the top right-hand corner, this alarm clock icon.
That's where we go to set reminders. Now, working with shared notes, like we are right now, this can be very useful. Anyone who has access to the notebook or shared notes, will also have those reminders. So, if you're working in a group, collaborating on a project, it's good to know everybody's going to be informed, thanks to these new reminders. Let's take a look at them now. By going to a note, we'll go to any note in our user conference notebook, like things to do, for example. Now, if we have things that need to get done, that's great.
But isn't it even greater if we could remind ourselves of a due date, and have a reminder sent to us even by e-mail, that would be good. Well, to set the reminder, we simply go up to the alarm clock icon and give it a click. Now that sets it. Something happened up here in the top of your snippet list or if you're looking at a side list for example. Reminders appears at the top, and there's this little arrow allowing us to expand and collapse those reminders. This is where it comes in very handy, especially with shared notes. Because anyone who has access to the notebook, this is the first thing people see at the very top.
It's attached to the notebook and you'll see a reminders based on the name of the note, where the reminder was set. Now, of course, there's more we can do, by going to the icon that has drop down, we could set a date. That was an option that appeared the moment we set it. We can also click at any time to add that date. And there are some presets like setting it up for tomorrow. If this all needs to be done by tomorrow, we click the preset tomorrow button. Boom, there it is. It shows up at the very top, also over here on our reminders list. But let's go back to the alarm clock icon and change the date this time. Let's say this needs to be done by the last work week in the month. We can select the date, even specify the time.
The default time, 8 AM, click the 8 and maybe change it to 4 PM. We'll click the am and type in a P. And we've now changed the due date for this particular item. So it appears at the top. As you hover over that, you can click Done when it's completed. Or if you wanted to, you could come over here to the list, click the check mark that appears kind of faded in the background here on the left hand column. When you click that it's then marked as complete. So, you won't get a reminder. It's crossed off. It's also crossed off up here at the top. Click that checkmark again though, if you haven't really completed the list. It's now a reminder that we'll pop up a little message in our activity here, on that particular date and time.
Wouldn't it be nice though if we got an email the morning of? Just to remind us that we have until the end of the day to get these done. Well, that's an option you can turn on by going up to the Evernote menu, going down to Preferences, select that, and go to this new option now that appears for reminders. There's a check box for receiving reminder e-mails, and notice they are sent the morning of those days when notes are due. And we'll close this up. All right, so we'll get an email reminder, we'll also get an in app reminder that appears under our activity. Let's test that out.
Let's go to another one. I'll go to the business card for our caterer. Maybe I need to call this person later today, so I'm going to set a reminder, I'm going to add a date, even though the date is today. So whatever date you're working with, if you're following along, you can select today. We are going to change the time though. I'm going to change it and I have the clock appearing up here, so I can set this up to happen very quickly. So we can see what the reminder looks like, I'll type in 29. And that should be PM, and click off to the edge here to set that.
So notice now, I have a couple of reminders showing up here on my list. And anyone who has access to this shared notebook will also see that up there. Something just happened here in my activity. There it is. I click that little icon to see that I have a couple of reminders. Now, I had set this up earlier, so I'd see that original reminder, there it is again. And I can go directly to that note by clicking the reminder itself. Same thing here on my reminder lists. I want to go back to the Things to do. I can click it here, takes you to that note on my list. Finally, I've concluded all of these, I can mark this as complete. And it's now crossed off on my list.
Notice this little settings button here that we can click, next to reminders. If you don't need to see any of that were recently completed. Especially, if you have a long list of reminders, these can take up space. We can hide them by clicking show recently completed reminders, that check mark will be removed from that, and they are hidden. So, notice that there's one hidden, and any time, I can change that back, by going back to the settings or click View All to see them all. And when I'm not busy with reminders, I can collapse this. Still at the top, notice I have one for today, two in total. So, I'll always see that information.
And if you're sharing note in notebooks, it's especially useful when collaborating on projects. It's the first thing people see when they come in here. And if they're responsible for any tasks that need to be completed, that's the first thing they'll see at the very top of the list. So, that's the reminders feature here in Evernote on the Mac, as well as on your mobile device, under iOS, as well as the web version of the Mac. Once you've set up reminders in one area, remember syncing up your notes and notebooks means, you have access to those reminders through any venue. Whether you're on the web, on your iPhone, or here on your computer.
