Tried to move > 100 notes from one notebook to another


Vincent Noel

Idea

Hey all,

I tried to move > 100 notes from one notebook to another. Only 50 notes were moved.

It looks like there is a limit on the number of notes that can be moved in one go. This looks like a regression from version < 10.x.

In addition, the interface does not make clear at all that only 50 notes are going to be moved. This can lead to problems.

Hi @Vincent Noelinteresting choice to move more than 100 notes into another notebook. Can you please tell us why so many notes needed to move at one time? Does this fit into your regular workflow on Evernote? 

Simple use case is you have an old projects notebook and when you close the project you move all notes tagged with projectname to the old projects notebook.

max. 50 notes can be selected, yes, it's a limitation.

This is a quite normal action - another use case could be to move a bunch of notes into a new notebook created to share the information with somebody else.

For example: I share the documents for my tax declaration yearly with my accountant. This is typically appr. 250 notes, that I move to a new, shared notebook.

A limit of 50 is low and means the action needs to be repeated.

 We're told the 50 limitation is a temporary restriction
@Siddharth Gurjar can you confirm?

am I the only one finding the question from @Siddharth Gurjar odd? why do users have to "justify" moving more than 50 notes? in other words, why was there a limit imposed in the 1st place (it did not exist in the fully featured "legacy" apps)? why doesn't EN have information about the use cases of its customer base and consider them during product development? why are they only trying to find out after the fact, i.e. the official release of a new stripped down version?...the damage is obviously done, but why not try to do a systematic fact finding mission at least now instead of one off? so many questions...

Why is this an odd question ?

A user is posting something in the forum, an employee from EN shows by and wants to get a better understanding of how to adapt the limit. For this use cases are helpful. So we are collecting ideas. Probably they have to get a feeling of how many notes should be allowed in one "package". It sounds like there is an internal table  in the software that needs to be dimensioned.

We had a lot of discussions in the forum that EN staff would not care. Now they care, and nothing about it is "odd". I welcome their participation.

@toao I thought it was a VERY odd question... it is one thing to ask a user to justify a use case for some action that really has no clear/apparent reason they would need to be doing that often.  It is a very different thing to ask it about the 50 note limitation.  Also, two weeks after the original post it is even more odd for Evernote staff to finally surface on the topic and ask a question that seems to suggest they thought 50 would be more than anyone would ever need to move (which I just can't imagine being the case)

fully agree that it is more than welcome for EN staff to get involved here. this is actually perfect.

my issue with the question is that it is happening weeks after the question as well as month(s?) after the decision to launch the mutilated V10 release and then on just one out of at least tens if not more serious shortcomings considering the remainder of the feedback on here over the last few weeks...

wouldn't it make sense to at least now have a structured process to find out about use cases, prioritize them and then communicate an action plan based on that? I mean this should have happened months if not years ago, maybe when Ian took office, instead of one offs now as well intended as they surely are...

I must admit my first reaction was “Huh?”.  Mostly the “interesting choice” phrasing.  Never want to punish anyone for curiosity or participation, thank you @Siddharth Gurjar.  

Second reaction based on everything else in these forums the last weeks was the vacuum in which these V10’s were created.

FYI I sometimes rethink the organisation of my notebooks and when that happens I move tons of notes from one notebook to another (for instance merging or splitting notebooks). 

Moving hundreds of notes from one notebook to another has never been a problem in previous versions of Evernote.

A related problem is that since you can't select more than 50 notes at a time, you can't act on all the notes at once within a specific notebook. This is actually quite frequent if you want to tag plenty of notes at once.
