New notes made aren't searchable until a few days later

Recommended Posts

I make a new note.

I search for something I know is contained in this new note.

It doesn't show up in search results. 😕 

Try again the next day - same problem.

And the next.

It seems to show up after a few days.

I only use web 98% of the time and 2% of the time I use on my mobile.

Am I missing something?

Thanks.

Note text is indexed on the device and should be searchable imediately

Images and pdfs are ocr'd on the server and there may be a delay   
Work is queued, with a priority to paid accounts    
I can view the note information on my Mac to see the status 220624659_ScreenShot2020-05-14at8_51_48AM.png.0695452b2d5e080c20c308f9655127e2.png

Which version of the web?  What kind of note, text, PDF, image?  There have been reports that the newest or beta versions have search issues.  Click on your avatar on the web page to see which version.  If you see the below click on Switch to previous version and see if things get better,.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Web version says it's 6.11.0.

I only ever make text notes 99.99% of the time.

Not sure about why it should take time to index...

Surely it all gets stored in a database and should be searchable immediately?

In fact... I've made text notes... and I've come back a few days later and have searched - but just can't find them. 😕 

I wasn't sure if I was going mad or anything.

I rely on Evernote to just be able to make meaningless notes (that have meaning for me!) and be able to come and search up later.

I'll see how it goes with the current version and will switch back if troubles persist.

Though switching versions surely does nothing for the backend?
