Ideas for organizing notes


Salsero69

Idea

I've been using Evernote for a long time and have so many feature ideas that would make my using it so much more productive.

Pin Note to top - I would love the ability to pin an often viewed, but not modified, note to the top of the list. I know there's shortcuts on the toolbar, but I reserve that for very important stuff that I don't need all the time but are always hard to find.

Coloured notes - How about the ability to assign a colour key to a note in the list. It would be a good way to visually identify certain notes.

Manually sort notes - How about the ability to sort notes manually by drag-and-drop.

There's no pin feature but you can control notes via the sort sequence and adjusting the title or dates.

For example, prefixing the title with a ! sorts to the top in title sequence.

Much of this has already been suggested.

Workarounds: In Windows client, using any of the Snippet, Thumbnail and Card view,s you can pin notes to the top of the note list by adding a reminder to a note Reminders. Reminder notes are added to a special reminder list, and you can choose to sort them by date or manually, in which case you can drag/drop reminders up and down the reminder list.

Colors: you can add colors to notes in your note list using tags and styles. For example, if you use tag "A", find "A" in your tag list, right-click on it, and select "Style...", you can select a color that's used to mark notes in the note list that have that tag.

This is a feature I am anxiously waiting for. I would love to be able to change the color of the note card and have some kind of a color coding system for me or just make some of the notes stand out more than others. 

There have been other discussions and recommendations related to this however, I just like to reiterate every change I get :)
