Level 5* EdH 1,668 Posted August 20, 2013 Level 5* Share Posted August 20, 2013 We have a policy at Evernote to trust our employees and Evernote Business is built around that premise. We encourage the use of Business Notebooks but don't force the point. People will use business notebooks because we make it a good/seamless experience to move content freely between personal and business contexts. With all due respect, no you don't. You don't allow any movement. You copy the note and delete the original, and only on Windows and Mac. That destroys note links. I was told this was because EN wants a Chinese wall between the two sets of data, and I get that, and love that. And you cannot do this on any mobile platform or on the web interface. This has nothing to do with trust. This has to do with employees inadvertently putting stuff in the wrong bin because in 5.x, you CANNOT tell the difference. You have to have the notebooks names memorized, and if they get it wrong, the the company loses data. And the tag issue is just absolute chaos. Also, the UI of v5 for Windows is not final and we have some changes in the works regarding the separation of business/personal content. We definitely test our software and listen to our users. I mean... hello, my name is Jack and I work at Evernote. Glad you guys are enjoying the beta version of our new software I am glad this is happening. However, there is no indication of this in this thread or in the thread specifically on the personal/business issues. What a mess. It is clear that the Evernote developers did not think through, and TEST, the behavior of Tags in a mixed Personal/Business environment.Come on J In a month and a half, yours is the first message I've seen from anyone at EN that has suggested that "Hmmm.. maybe the way it works in 5.x isn't optimal, and we have work to do." THat is appreciated. I never expected quick fixes or 100% agreement. But being non-communicative about it has been entirely too frustrating. You do realize people on this thread love the product right? Often intensely. I've given up dozens of hours installing 5.x, testing and uninstalling going back to 4 because 5 doesn't work right. That is no small task with 16,000+ notes and a 13GB datbase. It is a 6hr process each 4.x reinstall, and we have KILLER bandwidth here. I've provided a TON of feedback, and my feedback is a fraction of what the other enthusiasts have provided. And other than quick-hit bugs, the feedback from EN on this has been sub-optimal at best. Very frustrating. Link to comment
