Improve curated information with user-rating of notes and tracking number of edits/displays

Idea

Helping people curate their notes beyond adding tags will help people evaluate the usefulness of individual notes within a large collection of notes that have the same tag.  

Suggestions:

  1. Allow users to rate their notes with a 1-5 star rating and allow sorting by rating
  2. Tracking number of edits, number of note displays so people can sort by most edited, most displayed within tag and/or search criteria

How about a tag workaround? A 'star' character is a little awkward; using '*' would not really work, and using a Unicode character (★) might not be easy to work with, but maybe the '$' character would work. So, five new tags: '$', '$$', '$$$', '$$$$', and '$$$$$'. You can search for these explicitly ('find all 2-star notes': tag:'$$') or using wildcards (find all 4-star or better notes: : tag:$$$$*).

Hi.  Don't see that a star rating would add much to my use of Evernote;  in fact the rating just adds to the visible complications of the UI - particularly for phones.  And I don't find my notes by inspection - I'm searching for receipts or meeting notes where only a small number of notes show as search hits.  A 5-star review would be unhelpful - and in many cases I don't know whether I will ever need the information again - so should that be 5-star or 1?

I do agree that more stats on notes would be helpful - particularly if you're sharing a notebook to others.  Knowing which notes have been most and least popular would be good.

In general though the created and updated dates give you some broad indications - the oldest updates on the oldest created dates would help indicate the least used...  although again I have reference books that have never been updated...

I agree, we should leave it up to the user how she wants to retrieve the notes and for me a 1-5 star rating and the filter along stats (which note did I generate most recently independent of in which notebook; which note did I edit, read etc the most often - or never?) would be helpful add-ons.

The tag workaround of $,$$,$$$ etc goes some way but Evernote might want to provide more elegant approaches... any other ideas?

Hi.  This thread hasn't seen any posts in 3 years - I don't see Evernote having classifications as a high priority...
