Publicly Sharable URL to View Notes - Is Best Feature Ever - Suggested Improvements


Justin Howes

Idea

The ability to publicly and quickly share indivdual notes to anyone behind a firewall or within a strict office situation, but still with an internet browser is invaluable...   Not everyone likes using (or will use) their personal Google or Facebook credentials to log in and create an Evernote account simply to view notes via a notebook share..   

I suggest the following improvements to this feature would attract premium users:

  • Simple Personalization - Suggest allow publicly sharable URL notes to be slightly editable (for premium users), so that the Evernote logo and save note button are smaller and at the bottom of the HTML page render..  And allow a user to add their own simple default logo and select their own header bar color..   
  • The publicly shareable link could have a simple access code to provide a bit better security
  • Suggest a publicly sharable link can have an expire date set after which that it no longer works automaticaly, or a have a ticakable box in a list view so that it is more easily disabled.

I second: publicly sharable link with expire date set after which that it no longer works automatically, or tic-able box in a list view so that it is more easily disabled.

Not exactly what you want but if you didn't know already you can get a list of all shared notes by searching

sharedate:*

You then need to go into any notes to change the share permissions rather than have a checkbox.

Agreed, the public share feature is a great feature; I use it all the time   
My suggestion to Evernote is for a properly formatted link with note title and url

I may have missed something but it doesn't seem like a good idea at this point.

Public links have a double purpose:
1/ Public sharing
2/ Sharing with people who do not have an Evernote account and do not want to have one.

In the second case, it does not seem reasonable to me to have a URL giving an idea of the contents of the note for reasons of confidentiality.

As a hint: It is much easier to see shared notes in the v10 client than it was in legacy. The sharing symbol shows behind the note title in the notes panel.

When sharing in a setup like a project, I find it much easier to handle a shared notebook than sharing individual notes.

Share Notebook = all notes inside shared

Move a note inside / outside = sharing Starts / stops 

Invite a new member, send public link = allow a person access to all shared content

This avoids to have to handle a big number of individual shares in many cases.

It is just the same process to set a reminder on the note. When the reminder activates the closest to a tick-able box would be to click the Share button and click the tick-able box ;) In the Reminder list view, right click, choose share and click the tick-able box.

It isn't an expiring date on the share link but would work well enough in the meantime.

OK it isn't a tick box but an on/off button but the result is identical.
