I'm a huge fan and user of Evernote, and lots of people ask me for tips on using it, so I'm starting a series of blog posts on Evernote Tips and Tricks to share some great tips and ideas for using Evernote.
Tip #2 Setting Reminders and Alarms
A really nice feature of Evernote is Reminders. You can set a reminder for any note you have. This means you can set reminders for tasks, follow up on a note, remind yourself to read a note you saved, etc.
To set a reminder, simply select the note and then click the Reminder Button in the top-right corner of the Note Editor. Click Done and this will show up in your Reminders. You can also select this icon in the Evernote Web Clipper window after clipping something.
To really make reminders useful, you will want to set an alarm too.
Click the Reminder icon and select Add Date to set a date and time to be reminded.
You can receive your reminders via pop-ups on your device and/or email notifications. I use both. You set this under Tools>Options, Reminders, Receive Reminder Emails.
You can manage your reminders under "All Notes". Click on Reminders and then you can click on one to edit it, check it off, and remove it from the list. You can even reorder them by dragging and dropping them. This makes it easy to see all of your reminders and edit them as necessary.
