Search from iOS and web does not return items in shared notebooks

Recommended Posts

When searhcing from my iPad/iPhone app or from the web app, items in shared folders do not appear in the search result.

However, searching from the PC app, items in shared folders are included.

What am I missing?

I don't think you can search shared notes from anywhere. Fundamental flaw IMO.

I left evernote for this reason. Waiting....

i see this issue intermittently.

also, i'm pretty sure iOS (phone) mobile app search is broken at the moment (june 19th, 2020, 10am pacific).

i can't easily find a status.  if the issue has been reported or acknowledged.  if the issue is being worked.

I just discovered this bug as well. I thought it was only on the Mac app Preview Beta, but I confirmed it in the web search as well.

Searching did not return results on notes in a shared notebook, until I had opened the notebook. After that, the notes in the notebook appeared to be indexed.

I can't reproduce the bug easily but suspect that it may recur when there's a version update? The failed search was working in stable Evernote for Mac, but not working the first time I ran it in the Preview Beta or the web interface.
