Just thought you would all like to know, if you right click on the evernote note and choose "copy note link" then paste it into your todo task, it will create a link. If you click on this link, a new browser window will pop up and then open evernote and bring you straight to your note. This is my method of adding files/extra notes/emails/whatever to tasks. Oh and the link also works on an iPad and android device (you must have the evernote app installed though)

Link seems to work on desktop but not on iOS... am I doing it wrong by just using the regular evernote not link syntax like evernote:///view/16619287/s153/1d0762b9-1895-40ab-8675-9b90d045b1bc/1d0762b9-1895-40ab-8675-9b90d045b1bc/

Hello Luke,

Please try to change the link from:



evernote:///view/16619287/s153/1d0762b9-1895-40ab-8675-9b90d045b1bc/1d0762b9-1895-40ab-8675-9b90d045b1bc/ (Test)

In which case the word "Test" will be linked and let me know if it helps.

Thanks for tip. But I do not see how your example with (test) on the end of the link is changing the evernote link to anything different in the Todoist todo.

For me, I get a link followed by (test)

I would be grateful if you could explain in greater detail how to make the word "test" a link.

Instead of "copy note link", try Note/Share/Copy URL to clipboard--this will give you a portable URL that you can indeed paste into other apps, such as (presumably) Todoist.
Still, true integration would be a great deal more valuable than this, and would fill holes in the functionality of both programs.

David Harrison premium
Replied on Apr 08, 2013 - 11:17

tags to tags, notes of task to body of an evernote note...

for a 'belt and braces' approach, how about mapping each todoist project to a corresponding notebook in evernote, and each task to a note within that notebook... As the task is edited in Todoist, this is reflected in the Evernote note...

Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to code ;-)

A function that associates the tasks in Todoist with specific notes in Evernote (or groups of notes) would be extremely useful.

Tag integration would be fantastic too.

I use Todoist to manage the tasks themselves (not the information associated with the tasks). Todoist is perfect for organizing WHAT needs to be done and WHEN it should be done. As my priorities are constantly shifting, I make constant adjustments in Todoist. However, in my workflow, all of the information ABOUT those tasks goes into Evernote.

Right now, I paste hyperlinks to the Evernote notes into the notes field in the Todoist task. As I work with task in Todoist, I link over to Evernote to input status updates, documents, etc. Unfortunately, this system requires bouncing back and forth between applications which is not ideal.

The fundamental issue for me is that while Evernote is incredible at capturing information, there is a giant hole in functionality around task management which I fill with Todoist.

Now that Evernote has released its Reminders module, I feel this really strengthens the need for Todoist to link in with the service. Having an interesting discussion on Google+ about whether Evernote is trying to break into the task management market and take people from the likes of Toodoist and RTM or make it easier for these third party packages to link in. I hope it's the latter.

To be honest, the real point of my comment was surprise that RTM moved so quick. I was with them for a year but saw very little development.

Although Todoist were a little slow with their Android widgets, I've seen more development from them in a few months than I saw at all with RTM. Actually, I think it's unfortunate that RTM were given the opportunity to work with Evernote so early. If I were Evernote, Todoist would have been much higher up the list.

Here's hoping for Todoist/Evernote integration soon. It will make a great platform just a little bit better :-)

The problem is - no time is being taken on it at all since it's a "Maybe some day" rather than a "We are working on this and it may take a while to get perfect because we don't want to push a half-baked solution."

Here's something that might be of interest:


You give Task Clone access to your Evernote account and add a Todoist project email address (under the genetic option). Then, whenever you add a tickbox to a note in Evernote, Task Clone will automatically import it as a task to Todoist.

I think it's kind of cool and I've found it useful. It's a bit of a stop gap, although no where near as good as I would hope full integration will be. Thought some folk might be interested :-)

I've transferred all my work to RTM which works incredibly well.

As for your hierarchical project display - what a waste of time. You can use RTM's tag based searches to zoom in and zoom out of project components - its a breeze.

I want Todoist + Evernote integration.

But, as a recent convert from Remember the Milk (RTM), I'd like to put things in perspective: For years, RTM has linked GMail messages to tasks, but these can only be made or viewed within the RTM-GMail browser plugin, and *no other place*. The GMail links are not even visible in the RTM web app itself.

Similarly, the RTM browser bookmarklet creates a task from highlighted text on a web page (awesome) but is incapable of adding the page URL to the task (NOT awesome), even though every RTM task has a special URL field.

So, when they cranked out their nice Evernote integration with note links visible across all clients, I just stared. Really? And you can't include a GMail link in the web client? (Note, this won't work on Android due to Google's restrictions on the GMail app.)

I still miss RTM sometimes, especially its fantastic "Smart Add" feature and solid sync, but I had a bunch of specific needs that pushed me to change.

@Johann Could you explain how one zooms in and out on subprojects, etc. with RTM? I never did figure that out.

Jamie premium
Replied on Sep 17, 2013 - 19:34

@Christian my experience of Todoist and Gmail tasks is similar to RTM. You can create a task linking to an email using the browser extensions but you cannot then access these links from the Android app. Fairly useless imo unless you never use the mobile apps.

There is also a Google Apps extension but I've never worked out what it does other than add a shortcut to the "More" drop down menu in the Google mac bar.

What I have found incredibly useful is Gmail filters and their integration with IFTTT.com. Eg, I get regular submissions to a website that causes WordPress to email me with the details. Using a filter in Gmail I can add a specific label. IFTTT.com will then pick up the email and auto-forward it to Todoist, thus creating a Task.

Perhaps something similar might help for you and Evernote?

Although I do agree it's just a workaround. I too had hoped (even expected) that Todoist would move much more quickly with Evernote integration. Disappointing.

I must say I'm disappointed with Todoist' apparent lack of interest in this, at least for a lot of users, very important feature request. Having the link between my core information system, which is Evernote, and the To Do / reminder system of my choice, is imperative. It doesn't even have to be fancy - just a simple note attachment integration would do for starters. A lot of other web services are able to offer Evernote integration, so it's not rocket science we talking about here. Todoist can't even offer the ability to paste working evernote links in the form of evernote:///view... into their reminders. If you want people to pay for your services, you quite simply have to take feature requests like these seriously...

I found a way to integrate the two, sort of.
What is needed:
Zapier (a service similar to IFTTT)
Todoist premium

How to do it:
Create a zap in zapier where Evernote is the trigger. I set a filter to fire this zap any time a note is created in Evernote with 'Todoist' as a tag.
The action I wish to do is send an email to my Todoist email address. Subject will be the contents of the note, body will be the time created (as that gets added as a note to the task in Todoist).

End result:
Every time I create a note in Evernote and tag it as Todoist, I get a task created in my Inbox project.

Dan Pittman premium
Replied on Oct 01, 2013 - 15:00

Daniel, are you using the free or a paid version of Zapier? Do you find that the syncing is fast enough? I might have to give that a try.

I wish IFTTT had better Evernote triggers. It seems that you could share an Evernote note with Todoist via email, but shared notes to the Todoist inbox don't seem to come through. I assume it's because of the way Evernote formats its email.

Daniel Grossberg premium
Replied on Oct 01, 2013 - 15:17

I am using the paid version, but it syncs every 15 minutes. I agree it could be faster, and I too wish IFTTT could handle this trigger. As far as the Todoist inbox notes, it seems you need to configure which email addresses to accept notes from. Perhaps that is where you are running into issues?

At the end of the day, I really wish there was a native sync between the two systems instead of using a middleware. I think systems like IFTTT and Zapier show that it is possible, and to push the API rather than have something pull it should in theory be easy to build. Then again, I'm not a developer, so maybe it is harder than I think it is.

Another idea, although more limited than what is proposed (it is not "integration", per se).

Display Evernote links in a more "friendly" way.

For example, Omnifocus displays Evernote links like this (with the actual title of the note as it was created in Evernote):

Monthly reporting for IT Ops - newer version for AMS Director

Whereas, Todoist displays the same EN link like this:

The integration of this approach into a basic workflow for Todoist and Evernote would lead to big benefits - all stemming from this small and simple improvement.

Evernote integration would be so useful, but maybe there is no need to overcomplicate it. My idea:

- It is already possible to copy&paste Evernote links into task notes. So how about displaying note content (when pasting link to note) and notes list (when pasting whole Notebook) like this http://bit.ly/19Ya2mr ?

- For my workflow, more important would be implementing "add notes" feature not only for tasks, but for projects themselves. There are always notes same for different tasks inside one project. Currently, I am constantly switching between Evernote notebook for the project and task list in Todoist. Integration would be a huge timesaver!

What I want from this is kind of the reverse of most of these posts. I use Todoist to handle repair calls for rental properties (among other things). I add a note to the task every time I call the repair person, follow up, and when the repair is completed. I keep tenant correspondence records in Evernote, and would love to be able to archive the task, complete with notes, into Evernote when completed. That way if I need a record of due diligence, it is all in one place. As it is now, I am basically pulling up the task notes and clipping a screen shot to Evernote before I check it off. Not difficult, but not the cleanest solution either.

Christian deTorres premium

I believe Todoist should start simply. Update the app to recognize evernote:// URLs, and treat them like any other URL by hiding the link and replacing it with parenthetical text. Ideally, upon recognizing such a link, the task would be marked by a small elephant icon, much as emails are marked by an envelope. And that's it.

There are many approaches to Evernote integration, and some may want it such that each task note is a note in Evernote. The simple approach I proposed earlier has the advantage of mapping to Todoist's current approach, and is how I expected it to work in the first place. It also takes less effort than, for example, an integrated note-picker.

I use Evernote premium and I think what I'd like to be able to do is create a todoist task in Evernote from a note and I'd like to be able to link multiple notes to a todoist task.

That way, I can go to a task and see the Evernotes that are linked to that task and click on them to view them in Evernote.

Whether or not each Evernote task is a note in Todist or not is of not concern to me and I do not need to see any more than the Evernote note title in todoist as long as I can click it and go to Evernote.

Hello Stefan,

The vast majority of suggestions posted to the Votebox are dated for 2011 as that's when our Votebox was created which resulted in addition of many different suggestions. After some time, it started to become clear which are more popular than others and based on that )and not only), we're already added many features and improvements to our system and will continue to do so.

Nonetheless, having limited resources, we must always plan the order in which we add new features ahead so that it will not only consider most votes, but also technical matters such as - what improvements will require a bigger rewrite on top of which we can add next features so that we won't end up with a new feature that must instantly be rewritten as we add another.

And finally, our vision is to create a simple yet powerful task list which will allow you to focus on your to-dos rather than spend a lot of time just setting it up which at some point could happen if we would integrate every single requested feature.

That said, all things considered, we will always continue investing our resources in improvements of our software and base our decisions on your requests, but at the same time - keep Todoist the simple and easy to use tool that you've chosen to use and as difficult as it is to find the right balance between advanced functionality and simplicity, we do what we can to reach this goal.

Right now we're working on a big improvement which will introduce sharing, delegation and multiple other new options across all platforms, from where we can continue adding more features in a faster pace.

I have been using Todoist, TaskClone and Evernote for the past month and love it. I am a project manager and spend the majority of my day in meetings. I use evernote to take notes and as action items are discussed in the meeting I not them with a check box. After the meeting is over I have a tag set up for Action Items. When I sync TaskClone reads that tag and sends the information to Todoist along with the evernote note link.

There have been times when I have to review the context around the task so when I select the note link it opens evernote on my desktop (I haven't tried on my phone yet). I prefer this as I can have multiple action items in one note that I want to track separately.

Nozbe is just launching an Evernote link functionality like RTM's in their v 1.9. But, I prefer the cleaner workspace of Todoist. It would be great to have the EN linking capability.

EN linking is the next evolutionary step for TODOIST. My bet is that most people using todoist are probably of the GTD fraternity and tie in numerous apps as part of their own productivity suite including the main entity being Evernote. Integration is vital at this point.

Thank-you for your update in regards to TaskClone. I'll check it out!

TaskClone seems to be a step in the right direction, but I do hope that Todoist sees this and is working on EverNote integration. It's not that I don't disagree that ToDoist's simplicity is where it's charm lies, but simple has never necessarily meant powerless. ToDoist is quite powerful already, and being able to link to EverNote would be amazing.

Just wrote a suggestion for the Todoist folks to look into providing a Todoist channel on IFTTT (https://ifttt.com/wtf). With the right triggers available this would open up a HUGE number of integration with other web services like Evernote, Twitter, RSS....I hope this is something the Todoist group is looking into.

IFTTT would be fantastic! I also wouldn't mind integration in the other direction. If archived tasks could be automatically sent to Evernote, than we could use the attachment features in Todoist just like we would Evernote, then have all of that sent as one note when the task is finished. Even if there was a function to email a completed task upon archiving, it could be emailed to Evernote. This might not be the best solution, but it may be the simplest to implement as far as direct integration goes.

Zapier now provides a developer console - open to all - looks straightforward but I am a little out of my depth. If you have development skills - this could be an easy win.

+1 for EN integration. Is this something you haven't done because of limited resources or you think somehow you'll lose activity in ToDoist if you do? If so I think it's exactly the opposite. I'm becoming a heavy user of EN and the ability to have reminders in RTM is amazingly powerful. I can tap it and pull up the original EN note, and i can sort, tag, batch process RTM reminders for EN just like normal reminders. I think you'll do better to keep your users by providing the integration.

Yes please to evernote integration!!! I keep sp much stuff in Evernote, integration to remind me to do something with the info would be awesome.

Replied on Feb 16, 2014 - 09:20

The main thing I need is for the mobile applications, in my case Android, be able to open the Evernote links created in the PC version. RTM, toodletaks, and others have the capabilities of opening the "evernote://view" link with the local Evernote client.

Automatic links via EN Reminders or taskclone would be nice. But I don't mind creating manual links as long as I can open that link on all my devices.

You can link to the evernote.com url, but that exposes the note to the interner and requires online access to open. Won't work on my 10 hour flights to Europe.

I really don't understand why making the Evernote note link URL work is so difficult... The user and Evernote are making the connection and content, all you have to do is handle the Evernote URL... If you guys don't know how, I'm sure the guys at task clone can help.

Because, as I understand it, we have two options regarding links. We can have a web link, which is accessible anywhere, but makes the note public. If I remember correctly, the web link also let me see the note but not modify it, which defeats my purposes for linking it. OR, I can create a link to the note as it is stored on my hard drive, which works well only as long as I am sitting at my desk.

Honestly, if I could archive tasks as notes (complete with the notes and attachments) when completed, that is all I need.

Taskclone fails a lot of the time..sometimes it clones, sometimes it doesn't. Random, so not helpful at all.

+1 for archival ability of completed tasks as well. Ideally it would be great to specify the period, one note per day, week, or month, etc ... It looks like you can create one long (append to) archival note with Zapier, but I'm not inclined to give my Todoist and EN account information to a 3rd party integrator.

I originally went with Toodledo, which I think is fantastic for task management. It sync with a lot of devices and apps and is very configurable (and reasonably priced). Resently though, I'm working more and more on a project basis and I think Toodledo is a bit lacking when it comes to that, so I'm testing and considering IQTELL instead. I think it works a little better when you have a lot of projects, while still conforming to GTD terminology.

Will my vote make a difference ;-) ?

I've moved to Todoist from OmniFocus and Asana, the latter used for my collaborational projects only. Omni Focus' lack of interest in developing for other platforms than Apple was a drawback despite of a very powerful app.

Todoist got me with it's "all platforms" and wonderfully clean user interface, left pane structure with nested projects etc..

Evernote integration for me would be:
Being able to drag a note from Evernote to TD Inbox either having app windows side by side or using Cmd+Tab. This should paste the link to (local) note in Evernote and place the cursor before it so that I can write down a kind of task I want done. Pressing Enter would then leave this task in the Inbox and that's it.

Archiving a task that has (from the beginning) been connected with a note in EN, to Evernote by either drag & drop or sending with right click or from the task settings dialog.
In this scenario the eventual notes within a TD task should end up in the final EN note, of course.

I have other suggestions for improvements but I will place them in appropriate threads of this forum.
Thank you and have a great day.
