Hello Evernote - your "survey" is terrible

Recommended Posts

When the recent survey came out I was somewhat excited about providing feedback about what I would like to see.

Instead, I was treated to what seems to be  an hour long marketing survey, designed to figure out which of several "shiny objects" Evernote seems to be pondering and whether I would pay more for those shiny objects -  including a whole lot of things I really don't care about at all.

I am quite pleased overall how Evernote has transformed over the last few years for example:

  • Contextual Formatting  (and simplified font choices)
  • Embedded help
  • Added dictionary (but how can I do other languages?)
  • Modernization of the UI

This is enough to keep me going with Evernote.

However, the survey seemed to go off on some other tangents and I am totally confused about who the suggested features are even relevant to.

Since I was given no opportunity in the survey (maybe if I spent an hour to do it) some things I would like to see:

  • Fix the antiquated navigation - back should be back and forward should be forward regardless of tags
  • Add hyper links to parts of notes - maybe even something radical like a Table of Contents
  • Be able to link to Tags / Notebooks etc from within a note
  • Tables that can scroll and have headers - maybe even something radical like sort
  • Enable some sort of automation / plugins
  • Have some sort of real library of REAL SOLUTIONS - is there a reason every last Evernote user has to create their own personal system for tracking their media usage  and problems X Y and Z that have been resolved by thousands or not millions of other users  - this is a large topic, but generally speaking, why is everyone trying to implement the same things over and over again? What would a library of complete solutions look like vs. this is your todo template or your calendar template?
  • Some of your features are just broken - the web clipper is pretty useless and just butchers a lot of pages - maybe you should just dispose of it? (That has to be hard to code)

Perhaps you haven't fully understood that these forums are primarily user-to-user. So while we may have some sympathy for your thoughts, we aren't in a position to do anything about them. If you want to feedback direct to Evernote you might be better using the feedback function in the Evernote application.

I'm curious, what sort of features was Evernote exploring in your survey? I hope something related to linking was included, as that's one of the weaker remaining areas.
