Hi Gerwin,

What type of integration did you have in mind for integration? We're always open to new and great ideas that would make Todoist even better. Unfortunately, there are several factors to consider when adding a feature in. For one, one most commonly cited reason why people love Todoist is it's simplicity so we're always careful when adding a feature.

With said, we'd love to hear your ideas on how such integration is going to work. I understand that we have a Votebox pages worth of this but I'm curious about your particular workflow. :-)

Thanks in advance!

In the task detail/notes window, in addition to Dropbox and Google Drive , can we add Evernote as well (then the user can select a note within his/her account to link)?

Yes, that is a good way to integrate. At the moment I can paste an Evernote link into the notes field, but it would be better to see the titel of the Evernote note. So I know what information from Evernote it is.

Hi Leo and Gerwin,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. If you're working with Evernote in the web, you can actually use the Chrome extension for these as it saves links and the name altogether. That might be a workaround while there's no integration yet. :-)

Yes Clyde, but the titel is always "Evernote Web" and I have to change it
by my own with copy & paste from the Evernote note titel. This workaround
works only when I create a new task. When I want to bring an Evernote note
to an existing task I only can copy the link from Evernote...

Quick thoughts on Evernote Integration:

* Evernote Reminders
Evernote added reminder features a few releases back. It would be great if ToDoist could import these reminders. If I set a reminder on an Evernote note, with or without a due date, it would be awesome if ToDoist grabbed the title of any note with a reminder and added it as a task in Todoist (with the date if appropriate, undated if it's simply an undated reminder).

One way I use Evernote Reminders to flag articles I've clipped but want to read latter. It would be super handy to have this list in ToDoist so I can include "reading time" in my tasks when I'm planning my day.

Another way I use Evernote Reminders is to flag notes that are time relevant. For example - a note with a list of gift ideas for my husband's birthday. I set a reminder on this note for a few weeks ahead of time. It would be great if this showed up in ToDoist, dated with the date I set in Evernote, and with an easy link back to the note. Or - if we're talking big wish list here - I would love a "quick preview" option that perhaps showed the Evernote not in a hover over window that I could then click on to be taken to the note itself. (But sometimes, a quick glance at the note is all I would need, and it would be awesome to not have to actually open the link.)

The Evernote integration is what keeps me using Remember the Milk

I was a big supporter of RTM and Evernote integration until I discovered TaskClone. It doesn't work with Reminders in Evernote but copies tasks from your notes and then links the Todoist task back to the original note.

It's great for meeting notes, where you end up with a list of tasks that should be tracked individually yet you want to link back to the original evernote note.

It would be TOTALLY awesome to get Evernote Reminders put into todoist. Now that I'm using Evernote more and more, I'm considering leaving todoist for something else that offers this functionality (and I'm a premium/power user of todoist and have brought several team members on board) ... lacking that essential functionality is going to send me elsewhere. How soon can you integrate that; I'd hate to leave and have to retrain my team for something else.

Yeah, I went Todoist premium thinking I would be able to link my Evernote from within the note feature in Todoist. Taking the simplicity Todoist provides and avoid doing something crazy in Evernote like http://www.thesecretweapon.org/ which is super complicated to set up. As others have experienced I end up with a hyper link that says Welcome back which isn't the end of the world but is still annoying. Also, it opens the web note rather than opening the note locally or it does both which is also annoying.

I use evernote for storing information. Ex. http://www.challies.com/resources/kindle-evernote-%E2%99%A5 . Which walks through storing notes and highlights from amazon books into Evernote. That is a functionality I would never expect Todoist to have nor would I want it. I would sooner give up Todoist in favor of Evernote because I already have so much information stored bu :-) t it would be great to have cleaner integration. Todoist strength is in its simplicity taking on the ability to attach files and voice notes and almost becoming an archive system diminishes the simplicity. Where as a direct link to Evernote would allow for simplicity to remain within Todoist and extend functionality for those that choose to venture toward the more complicated.

I would like to be able to have my email ported into Evernote deal with it there and link the notes in the same fashion as the ability to add an email from outlook to Todoist. That one simple integration would increase Todoist's usefulness exponentially with out decreasing simplicity. :-)

I would also love this kind of integration. Functionalities described by Laura H suits my needs.

Well, todoist is really simple and thats the main thing with it, for me, I just need to have all my referal material with me, not as a task, because I will never "do it", just "keep it" there even when you end any project. Without affecting "karma" or vanish it by completing.
And of course would be great to use just one app to do both.

Yes please! Evernote integration is what I am looking for. this is the only thing that stops me from leaving RTM.
