I always make notes when I have a meeting. I write down important details and ideas, plans of actions and proposals. It helps me later - in keeping track of my ongoing projects, following up with my partners. It helps me remember important pieces of information. One day I was looking for a tool that would allow me synchronize my Google Calendar and Evernote account, where I keep my meeting notes. I wanted to be able to see my notes in Calendar and have my meeting details like time, place or participants in Evernote. Well… I couldn't find one. I shared my concern with Alexandr and Julia, and we decided to fix it. That's how DayNoter was born.
Insight, How we built it
Calendars organize information using time as a scale of measurement. They are convenient for planning, but suck in all other ways. The amount of important information stored in calendar is significant though: people's contacts, event dates and locations, meeting agendas, files, notes... Calendars are not designed to serve as an information archive.
What it does
It allows users to create, edit and manage their event notes in either Calendar or Evernote while keeping data in both applications in sync. Using DayNoter requires no additional apps. Once set up, DayNoter requires no further user interactions, and so user can seamlessly transition back and force between Evernote and Calendar.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
DayNoter not only helps users store their event information in Evernote, but also provides a great tool to optimize user's workflow and improve collaboration processes.
What's next for Daynoter
- Launch and collect feedback
- Extra features. Implement a road map of features to improve the note- taking and day- planning experience. Add more connections with leading calendar servers and note- taking apps.
- Custom setups. DayNoter solution is a platform for multiple use cases on basis of using Calendar+Evernote combination. By leveraging on the mechanisms already available in used apps (Evernote, Google Calendar at present), we plan to introduce a number of custom setups. Example: a special “CRM-like” configuration to manage communication with prospective clients.
