People all over the world rely on Evernote to be productive. Unfortunately, Evernote falls short in its task and event management. TaskClone is a brilliant solution. A simple addon, TaskClone is a bridge between Evernote and more than 40 to-do and calendar applications.
Features, Benefits, and Strengths
Tasks – TaskClone uses your to-do lists email function to copy over tasks. Simply add a checkbox in front of the action item in your note. Then finish the note and add a trigger tag (customizable in the TaskClone settings). The next time Evernote syncs, these items appear on your to-do list. Back in Evernote, you’ll see a skip code added to those items to prevent duplication. It is simple to authorize and set up, completely customizable and almost foolproof.
Events – After you authorize TaskClone in your Google and Evernote accounts, it’s easy to turn notes into calendar events. First, put a check box before your note and add “sch”. Next, write your event using Google’s natural language system and add the trigger tag. About five minutes after Evernote syncs, the event appears on your calendar. Again, the setup is quick and painless. Once activated, TaskClone is invisible.
TaskClone offers a 14-day free trial. This trial includes unlimited to-do’s, unlimited events or reminders to calendars, and the ability to send tasks to 10 different apps. After 14 days, this package (the business package) costs $2.08 a month ($24.95 a year). The two other options are Premium and Plus. The Premium is the most popular. Premium offers unlimited to-do’s, events, and reminders, and integration with five task applications. The premium costs $1.66 a month, billed $19.95 annually. The Plus is $1.25 a month billed at $14.95 a month and you get unlimited tasks and one application.
Because of Evernote’s weakness around task management, TaskClone is necessary for anyone who builds projects in Evernote. With TaskClone in place, you have a handy tool to turn those plans into action.
