thfrench 0 Posted August 3, 2012 Share Posted August 3, 2012 Hi thereWe're attempting to begin using Evernote at work to centralise storage of research and notes etc. that may be useful to a number of different people. We have around 12 licenses or so premium licenses. I have been using Evernote very successfully myself for the past year or so and really think it is a great product with awesome potential. However trying to use it in a corporate environment is starting to make me tear my hair out. The system we are attempting to adopt is to have a single shared notebook owned by myself, that everyone else sees and should be able to contribute notes into.Here are some of the difficulties I have come across:1) It seems you cannot tag notes going into shared notebooks anywhere except the web client. Not the desktop client, not the web clipper2) You cannot send notes to a shared notebook at all from the outlook clipper3) You can only delete note in shared notebooks from the web client4) You can only tag notes in a shared notebook from the web client4) You can only 'move' notes into a shared notebook from the desktop client and only one at a time5) When you copy a note to a shared notebook you appear to loose all tags6) Tagging in a shared notebook on iPad appears to work, but then doesn't?Numbers 3 and 4 I can appreciate as given the certain difficulties keeping data in sync working directly 'on the server' must simplify things.However, this is the only workflow I have found for people to put notes into the central shared notebook:1) Each person sends notes into their own '.to sort'2) Using the desktop client they copy any relevant notes, individually from '.to sort' to the shared notebook3) They switch to the web client and using that manually edit and add tags to each note separatelyI cannot imagine this workflow being effective in reality, and there must be a better way.Does anyone have any solutions, thought, reassuring words?ThanksTom Link to comment
