Make an options to make all notes offline along with specific notes


Recommended Posts

My database is somewhere north of 20GB. I don't have that much space on my phone.  What I do have is a notebook that I designated as offline storage on the Android that I can use to hold travel documentation and 'work in progress' notes.  Given that most folks don't have too much free space available I think defaulting everything to offline storage would not be feasible. User management required...

option to make all notes in a device go into offline

We have the "all notes" option in IOS, as well as specific notebooks

As per @gazumped, I have an "offline notebook" for specific notes

I think there is definitely a use case, for making specific 'notes' offline ( along with existing notebooks - feature which exists on mobile). Reason, some of my independent Notebooks themselves run into GBs, while individual notes in them may be 100-150MB. In sparse net conditions, where i mostly live, with no Wifi, and a terrible mobile connection, it defintey makes sense to have offline notes, as downloading or accessing info within a specific note is difficult.  @Ian Small @May L

Not clear what you mean by "independent Notebooks"
I basically have a single notebook (Filing)
and notebooks for special purposes like Offline

I do have a problem if a note has multiple "special purposes"; I can only assign a single notebook

All very well to have offline notes, but how much free storage do you have on your device?  I have a notebook (I may have mentioned) into (and out of) which I switch the notes I need on a visit by visit basis depending where and when I'm travelling.  It works for me,  no special 'offline' status required...

On my iPad I have nearly all notebooks set to offline. No sweat with 512 GB of flash memory.

On the iPhone I am more selective, usually I do not really work with EN on the iPhone. It is more for reference purposes.

It is really no effort to switch a notebook to offline, and because it stays that way, it is a one-timer. IMHO no need to change the iOS logic. No idea about the Android client.

Thats why, i said, user to have an option to download specific notes, within a notebook. My database too is over 30GB+ with over 20,000 notes. Not possible to download entirely offline on mobile, although i think in 1 or 2 years, our mobile phones will have enough memory to download entire databases.

 

Some notebooks, contain important reference information, which i may need for a short duration of time. say 5 or 10 notebooks, ranging around 500 MB to 1 GB, whereas the entire notebook may be much more. I need to have those specific notes available, offline always, but the notebook size may be a big deterrant. Not to mention, i have a terrible net connection, with no Wifi. 

 

( Please don't give the option that i could move the required notes to a seperate/new notebook and download), cos, the notes are in a specific notebook, with a meaning. Doesn't make sense to keep tinkering them here and there. )

Thats a problem in your use of notebooks; you should look at the tag feature for your "with a meaning"

Evernote uses notebooks to identify notes as private/shared, online/local, offline, default

Its not a problem in my usage, because 'Notebooks' was defined for creating a common group of notes, just as in folders. 

In any case, you just contradicted yourself, because, even if i used 'tags' for organizing specific notes, with a purpose, then, i wouldn't be able to download 'a set of notes defined by a tag', simply, because 'Evernote' doesn't support downloading 'tags' feature yet, but only Notebooks. :) { incidentally, if Evernote were to implement a note based indepenednt download system, then automatically, it would be logically easy, to download an entire tag-linked notes, by that logic.) 

And yes, I am as much as a power user as you are, but i am strong enough to point out the criticism in Evernote. Infact i use 'tags' more than 'notebooks' in my organization structure. You may want to take a look at my detailed feedback note, which i sent to Evernote, a month ago, and you can look how detailed i use 'tags' and my organization structure, in detail.

(Subsequent to sharing this document, i even had an online discussion with some members of Evernote's development team, online, and shared some of my views and feedback, on the upcoming changes).

Agreed, it's a deficiency
I'd like all the notebook features extended to tags

>>creating a common group of notes, just as in folders

Evernote has no support for folders
Some users emulate folders using the notebook/tag trees

Hi.  I'm probably being slow here,  but while features differ between mobile and desktop clients,  there seems to be no bar on desktops to identifying a series of notes by tag search and selecting a random number of those notes for various operations including Share/ Merge/ Move/ Print and create ToC.  By 'downloading tags' do you mean acquiring a list of tag names,  or processing the notes identified by those tags?
