How to Use Todoist Templates

Todoist is by far the best task manager I have ever used, and it has some very powerful features such as labels, filters and many more. Another feature that Todoist offers is the ability to import and export your projects into a template, allowing you to share that checklist and also easily duplicate it.

You might be wondering what the use of this is - it allows you to import projects again and again, such as a travel checklist, and means that you don't have to make it each time. Another great use is sharing templates with your family, and many, many more. You can even export them as .cvs files and edit them in Excel, or export them as a web link to share to others.

Manage Your Subscriptions with Outflow

Many apps work on a subscription basis now, many of which are some of the largest and most popular apps and programs. However, one of the problems with app subscriptions is that it is quite difficult to track when subscriptions on various apps run out. I pay £0.79 a month for iCloud, which is a very low price, and I often forget about buying it. However, when I add my Evernote and Todoist Premium subscriptions, domain names and more, the price really adds up. It's difficult to track when all of these things expire, as they are all based across different platforms, with different expiration dates, and different prices. It's a struggle to get on top of all of these different subscriptions.

Outflow is a great solution to this problem - you can easily add apps, and then see how long until you need to pay for that subscription again. Outflow allows you to get notified based around your subscriptions renewal date, so you won't forget to pay it again. Outflow has many more features, and is a great choice if you want an app to track your expenses.

Evernote Adds a New Feature That Automates Taking Meeting Notes

Evernote has just released a new public beta feature for Evernote Web, which allows you to quickly and easily take meeting notes that are pulled from your Google Calendar, and these notes are automatically filled in with location, time, description and participant information from your calendar.

Connect Evernote to your Google Calendar, and it'll find your next events. You'll be able to click on an event that is coming up soon, and that will make an automatic meeting note using the Evernote Meeting note template.

The new note will have the event title, and below that a link to the Google Calendar event. Evernote automatically detects the location of the event, as well as the description and participants. I think this is really cool, as it saves you writing it all down. You then have the notes section, where you take the meeting notes, and next steps where you can plan what you are going to add next.

If you don't have a calendar event up soon, you can just click on 'Blank meeting note' to get the blank template.

This is an awesome new Evernote feature, and I hope it makes it out of beta. It allows easy meeting notes to be taken, and I think lots of people would like it a lot.

You can sign up to Evernote here.

I will be concentrating on the major iPad updates in this post, as that's where the most change is, and it's most likely what will interest people the most.
