(Archived) Newbie alert - pls help with a basic question!

Recommended Posts

Sorry all, a real newbie question. I'm thrilled to have found Evernote - it's just what I needed to organise my recipes. I've just made a few individual notes with single recipes and now want to join/link them into a "recipes" folder. Is this possible?

I'm figuring this is necessary otherwise you have a huge list of notes on everything with no organisation beyond chronological. I'm sure there's a simple answer that I've missed in the start-up briefing. Thanks in advance for your help!

You have a couple of options. You could make a 'Recipes' notebook, and store all of those recipes in that notebook. Or you could make a 'Recipe' tag, and apply it to all of your recipes. In my system, I would use the latter approach. Tags are a powerful way to organize information, and to really know how to use Evernote well, you need to know how to use tags effectively. What platform are you running on?

And you could improve your search results with more specific tags.

For each recipe, use on of the following tags

  • Recipe
    • recipe-breakfast

The only minor drawback is I would classify pizza with all the tags. :o
