(Archived) Feature request - deleting a synced file removes that note

Recommended Posts

I'm using the "Import folders" tool to store files in Evernote.

It would be handy if Evernote reflected file deletions. This is the functionality I'm looking for:

  • [*:27a5zqoi]file.doc added to watched folder
    [*:27a5zqoi]file.doc note created in Evernote
    [*:27a5zqoi]file.doc deleted from watched folder
    [*:27a5zqoi]file.doc note also deleted in Evernote

Otherwise, my notebooks are going to fill up with files that I no longer need. And having to delete something in two separate places might get bothersome.

Edit: Moreover, a new version of a file should not generate a new note. When a change is detected, Evernote should update the existing note, not create a new one entirely.

The way I handle it is to make my import folders "delete" folders; I copy a file there, it's imported into Evernote and then deleted from the import folder. If I need to edit the file, I do it from Evernote. Evernote is built to sync between client and cloud; why add another level of complexity (file system to Evernote client)?
