To add a reminder to a note, simply tap on the alarm clock icon located at the top of the note on Mac and Web, and at the bottom of the note on iPhone and iPad. Android users can tap on the alarm clock icon from the bottom left section of the notes.


Once you do this, you can then set a date and time so that this app can alert you at that specified date and time.


Evernote will also ask you if you want to receive an email reminder as well. This means that Evernote will remind you with an email on the day the notes are due.
