Add a flag to a task

You can add a flag to a task to differentiate it from the other tasks in your to-do list. There are no dates or times associated with flags; they are simply a visual indicator you can use to set priority or call attention to a task.

Tasks that have been flagged have a small flag icon next to them.

Note: This feature is available to all eligible customers during Early Access. When Tasks is officially released, this feature will be limited to specific Evernote subscription plans.
