jlasiter 2 Posted September 23, 2013 Share Posted September 23, 2013 I collaborate with dozens and dozens of clients and colleagues on scores of projects per year. Evernote COULD be the backbone of that collaboration process. But it has one fatal flaw and I can't use it. When I share a notebook to a non-Evernote Member they cannot participate in the collaboration. It's "read-only". That's a killer. I cannot ask clients and colleagues to install software and join a service that *I* am forcing on them. They would happily follow a link and participate from the website but I cannot ask them to join. You should adopt a model like Dropbox whereby non-member users can use the service fully but cannot INITIATE new projects themselves without joining. I could be introducing your product to hundreds of people per year. Many of them would see the value in using it for their OTHER projects and THAT'S when they'd join - after they've seen the value and when they want to start using it to collaborate with others. A read-only collaboration is of ZERO use to me when collaborating with my clients. Link to comment
