kevin2i 0 Posted April 27, 2011 Share Posted April 27, 2011 The mail-to-evenote is a fantistic service, and fantastic that items can be tagged and sorted to notebooks by inserting @Notebook #tag1 #tag2 in the email title.viewtopic.php?f=30&t=15751&p=62355&hilit=tag+email#p62355Why can't we do this directly with note titles? (Sure, I hear the excuse someone might want to use # and @ in note titles . . . )I'm exploring the use of Evernote as a paperless filing system for Quickbooks (not linked, of course). The incentive is to keep the workflow simple, allow multi-user access, and save $250 over products such as papersaveplus. The drawback is that it is not linked to transactions nor accessible from within Quickbooks. SInce most of the filing is 'file and forget' - the use of notebooks and tags should be adequate.First problem is the Fujitsu Scansnap software sends to Evernote without allowing an edit of the note title. Using Scandrop ($10 mac app store) I can preview the scan and edit the title.However, the # and @ do not work as they do in email.Solution (work-around) is to scan to mail.app. Then I can tag and save in notebook of my choice. I can also edit the note, add written comments. This is such a great way to presort notes, email entry of regular notes can be simpler than using the Evernote application. Takes just a second to type "ev" in the "to" box.It would be very useful to use the email automatic sort feature for regular notes, and especially for scanned notes. Is there a way to turn this on for everything? Link to comment
