Note taking has long been a part of our history, leveraged to capture historic events and to support us in scientific discoveries. Taking notes is key to getting ideas and thoughts out of your mind and onto some material that will allow you to both clear your mind, and retain the thoughts and ideas for a later date. Most of us will have experienced that moment in time where you have an amazing idea or thought, but you know all too well that if you do not capture it quickly it will escape you possibly forever. Have you ever found yourself panic stricken by the pure thought of losing that idea in the moment?
Well I know I have, that’s why I leverage DropTask to capture those ideas and put them someplace I know I will not forget to revisit and expand on when the time presents itself. With DropTask’s visual interface it allows for creative thoughts to develop in a fun and exciting way. Having the DropTask app on my cell phone, which is almost always with me, is a way to capture my thoughts and ideas and set them aside for rediscovery when I have more time to expand on them. Visually capturing my ideas and thoughts has never been more energizing and productive.
If I were to ask an audience of note takers what tool they utilized to take notes and capture their ideas, they would surely respond with many different answers. Some might say they keep a traditional note pad and pencil on their nightstand, whereas others may use the voice recorder on their cell phone, or send a text to themselves so they don’t forget. It is likely some will even use the whiteboard in their office, but many would say they use a tool such as Evernote.
At DropTask we know how important it is to our users to be comfortable and effective in capturing information in your preferred tools. So, today we are announcing an exciting new integration with Evernote. Our integration with Evernote feature is currently being beta tested by some of our DropTask PRO users and will be publicly launched over the coming weeks.
Having the ability to capture notes and to track actionable next steps within your preferred note taking tool is essential for getting things done. Whether you’re in a meeting taking notes or you simply have an interesting thought during a note taking session, you want to be able to push your tasks to one central place. You want a workspace where you can easily monitor and manage next steps, and even delegate tasks to a team member if a little help is required. Now, with the integration between DropTask and Evernote you can do just that. Through our seamless integration with Evernote you can see your notes come alive and put them to action by sending them straight to DropTask’s visual and intuitive workspace, where you can manage your tasks and get things done.
Remember, a great idea is just a great idea unless you share it with others and execute on it. That’s why sending your notes to DropTask is the perfect solution to bringing your thoughts to life and watching your amazing ideas become reality, for both individuals and teams. What’s more, with a two-way integration, if you’ve started work on a task, but later decide you need to do a little more planning, you can gather your thoughts by viewing your task in Evernote – before sending it back to DropTask to continue making progress.
The integration between DropTask and Evernote, is just one of many new and exciting features our team is delivering to users over the coming months. If you have your own story on note taking or using DropTask to capture those all-important ideas, then share them with me in the comments below.
All the best
