TaskClone: Turn Information into Action

AUTHOR: Francisco Sáez
Taskclone 1

TaskClone is a new service that can be really useful if you use Evernote as your primary tool for taking notes.

Usually, when you take notes—well, at least I do—, you simultaneously jot down the critical tasks that emerge from this new information… and after that, you usually forget them because they are not where they should be, that is, in your task management system.

Evernote tasks

The guys at TaskClone have devised a solution to solve this problem by making that the tasks you collect in Evernote automatically appear in your task management application. In addition, with the Premium version, tasks can also be sent to Google Calendar by writing "Schedule: " followed by any text that Google Calendar can understand.

TaskClone allows you to integrate your Evernote tasks with virtually every personal productivity application in the market, including FacileThings:

Integrating TaskClone with FacileThings

Once you sign up, the process to set up your TaskClone account consists of 3 steps and takes just a few minutes:

  1. Authorize Evernote. Here you grant TaskClone permissions to access your Evernote notes. You can also specify a filter to access only the notes in a particular notebook or that have a specific tag.
  2. Set up your task app. For FacileThings, you have to choose the Generic option from the list and then write inbox@facilethings.com as the email address to create tasks.
  3. Authorize Google. You need to do this because TaskClone uses your GMail account to send tasks to FacileThings. If your GMail address is not the one you use to sign in FacileThings, be sure to add it to your list of emails so it can be recognized.

And that’s it. When you write tasks in your Evernote notes they will be automatically sent to your FacileThings Inbox. The task will have a note associated with a link to the original Evernote note:
