We're five weeks into my Evernote Basics series and you've learned a lot already! This week I want to tell you how you and your family, professional team or clients can use Evernote as a way to easily share and manage a common task or project list.
Step One: Create a new note in Evernote by hitting the plus sign at the top of the page, and title the note Shared Task List. Or you could call it Stuff To Do. Heck you could call it Jimmy Stewart for all I care, but it needs a title.
Step Two: Begin typing a list of tasks, breaking up the tasks by person or by category, as in the example below.
Step Three: Highlight all the items on your list with your mouse or trackpad, as below.
Step Four: Click on the "Checklist" icon in the formatting toolbar at the top of the page.
Step Five: POOF your text list becomes an interactive checklist!
Step Six: Share your note with other Evernote users using the "SHARE" button at the upper right. Now you will all be able to add things to the list and check things OFF the list as they get done.
Shared task lists are handy when you're collaborating with others on a project of any kind. What ways would creating shared notes be helpful to you and your personal or professional team?
