What’s New

Version 3.9.10

Introducing: **time block calendar sync**! You can now sync your NotePlan time blocks to your calendar as events in NotePlan 3.9.10.

## Promote Time Blocks to Calendar Events

You can now sync NotePlan time blocks as events to a calendar of your choice. Click the gear icon in the top-right corner and choose the option at the bottom of the list: "Create Events", and select the calendar you want to let NotePlan sync your timeblocks into. This will turn your NotePlan time blocks for the selected day into calendar events.

This deeper integration with the calendar allows you to “send” your timeline into other calendar and scheduling apps. For example, send your timeblocks to your Google or Outlook calendar to mark yourself as unavailable in these blocks of time. Or simply use it to see your timeblocks appear in your external calendar apps and widgets, so it’s easier to protect your focus time.

## Improved

- Better copy/paste of tasks. When you paste a task onto an empty task line, only the task contents is pasted and not the task icon markdown(`- []`).
- Pasting links in a code block no longer resolves the link to a title.
- The weekly references on top of a daily note now only show the top tasks, with collapsible/expandable sub tasks.

## Fixed

- Fixed various minor crashes
- Dragging a task with sub-tasks not the timeline of a different day assigned the date to the last task in the list.
- Titles of links can be edited normally now, before the keyboard shifted to upper scale randomly.
- When stopping the transcription, the cursor jumped to a random position.
- The Command Bar kept closing during plugin execution.

Noteplan 3 is unstoppable!

Hi there,

I recently downloaded this app and fell in love with it at first sight(or use). I have used all other productivity apps out there across both iOS and Mac, but nothing comes close to the features Noteplan provides. The ability to access and modify my notes, tasks and calendar, all in one place, cross-platform is beyond amazing! That is the foremost thing that sets Noteplan apart, in fact, a class apart from all other apps out there. They all seem to be missing one or the other feature and the closest anything has come to meeting that benchmark, is this app. I saw that people were raving about it on Twitter as well and I couldn't help but get this. I am on a free trial right now and I am set to get the paid version of the app in Sep -The fact that I am leaving a review at this stage is only indicative of the HUGE potential and brilliance of this app. I observed also, like one of the other reviewers here, that the development team is quite responsive and I really appreciate the fact. As a fan of this app, you can expect your team hearing from me with inputs and feedback along the way - I want to see this app get better and the best! There is so much potential here and I am in love with this! Thank you for your and the work of your team to make this possible! 🙏🏻😀

Perfect app for busy people!

I tested out tons of different task and note-taking apps before finding this one--what I was specifically looking for was a digital version of a bullet journal. On top of all the bullet journal functionality I was looking for, I'm discovering many other ways of staying organized. It's taking mental bandwidth I used to devote to keeping track of things and instead letting me feel like I'm on top of my work.

I'm a professor, so I juggle many hats throughout the day, as well as manage and push forward my own research projects. Anyone who has to do any kind of project management, either at home or at work, will make their life easier with this software. I used to look sideways at "productivity" apps... who has time for them? But this is absolutely making my life easier and me more productive! It somehow reaches the right balance between being simple and intuitive to use, but with lots of deep functionality if you're looking for it.

Plus, the developers are coming up with new updates all the time, and they are so kind and helpful when you reach out to them with questions.

Really great — the big picture

There are lots of great things to say about this app, but I think the top-line item is this: It has SUCH a good vibe — a balanced mix of features, a really thoughtful and interesting design, and (as you can see from the reviews) a *very* responsive developer. Some people won't like it because it isn't exactly like some other app, straddles a few categories, or doesn't adhere strictly to some 'method,' but for me that's a big part of what makes it so excellent.

I genuinely appreciate and respect the fanaticism of those developers who've ruthlessly focused on UI simplicity or a methodology, and their influence is everywhere; but I also want apps that are more flexible, even gentle, and for me Noteplan hits that spot. It has a rich feature set that mostly allows you follow your favorite approach, but it doesn't require you to do that — it lets you adapt and mix them. It is and *feels* rock-solid. And it's also young and small enough to have an active, constructive community of users — and a developer who listens to them on an individual basis.
