3 Ideas how to clear all checkboxes of a checklist automatically

Using Filterize

If you use checklists in Evernote, you will have noticed an uncomfortable detail. At the end you have to uncheck all your checkboxes by hand! But every problem has a solution. So we have implemented a new filter action: uncheck all checkboxes.

Idea 1: Uncheck all checkboxes after you have check the last checkbox.

Imagine you have a packing list for your vacations. You always need the same things, so you can use the list over and over again. It is definitely helpful not tot forget anything. But what about the list after you have checked the last checkbox? Let Filterize uncheck them all during the next Evernote syncs!


Therefore you need exactly this filter:

Actions:
miscellaneous –> uncheck all checkboxes

Conditions:
todo –> any todo
todo –> open todo –> negate condition

 

 

 

 

 

Idea 2: You have a weekly or monthly checklist? Combine it with a recurring reminder!

If you have to work through the same checklist every week or month again, it will greatly simplify your workflow if the reminder is automatically set to the next time you need to look at the note, e.g. in 7 days. Therefore, the second filter extends the first one by two reminder actions.
Checking the last checkbox clears the current reminder and sets a new one for in 7 days, or whatever you need. And of course also all checkboxes are unchecked as well.

 

Therefore you need this filter:

Actions:
miscellaneous –> uncheck all checkboxes
reminder –> delete reminder
reminder –> add reminder time

Conditions:
todo –> any todo
todo –> open todo –> negate condition

 

 

 

Idea 3: Uncheck also unfinished checklists

This time you didn’t need some of the items on your packing list. Even though you have not checked all the checkboxes, are you ready to leave. Then just use a tag to clear the checkboxes.
After you add the tag, your checklist will be reset and the tag will be removed from the note.

Therefore you need this filter:

Actions:
miscellaneous –> uncheck all checkboxes
tag –> remove tag (e.g. uncheck)

Conditions:
tag –> tag (e.g. uncheck)

 

 

 

 

 

I hope this new action will help you to truly 💚 checklists in Evernote!

Yours,
