I am an instructor and am using EN to encrypt and store my students notes. At the end of the semester I administer a test that I then take all the notes for them on. What I want to do is have a form that I can fill out then save for each student. I tried to create a fillable PDF using Scribus, but when imported I was not able to click on any of the Text boxes. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can accomplish this?

I really don't want to use a template from Word where it can be edited. I really just want to have something that says Name: ___________________ and only be able to fill in where the line is. Thanks!

Would the Copy Note facility be helpful? You create a template note, including prefilled-in content, tags, title, etc, and then use Copy Note to make a copy of it in whatever notebook you like.

EN does not support "fillable forms" with text boxes & protected text (IE text box descriptions such as "Name", "phone number", etc.).

You may need to open the PDF file in Scribus, Adobe Acrobat Reader, or other PDF reader in order for the form to work properly.
Just double-click, or right-click and select open, on the PDF file in the Note to open.

EN is missing the boat on this one, since the whole concept is about mobility they should include a forms builder with rudimentary data export in excel so that the mobile work force can gather information about their clients such as (Contacts, billing contacts, type of service needed, building type, systems type etc) this would be very powerful with the voice notes and picture saving abilities. If this were possible than than EN could also be used for inspections such as (building, management companies, maintenance, Fire Alarm etc).

They may be missing that boat intentionally. I'm not sure that it's their aim to provide form-builder software, though that sure sounds like a swell idea for some third-party development effort. That's what the API is for, after all...

Hi guys,
I think you guys would really like KustomNote.com. It does exactly that. I have created http://kustomnote.com. for Evernote, its a web app that allows you to create note templates, pick a theme, send email reminders and pre-define the fields to be used with different types like date, numbers, files, even movies and music and Google Contacts.

Please check it out and I'd be more than happy to help with anything,
- Hussein

Hussein - I'm interested in the security of my evernote information if your app requires access to all my information in evernote. Can I put limitations on access of just a specific folder?
