Malva 0 Posted October 15, 2013 Share Posted October 15, 2013 Hi, I'm a new user of Evernote and the interface is mostly intuitive, save for a few things. I have a few questions. 1) How do I tell whether a notebook is public or private? Biggest offender. On my ios phone there is absolutely no option to see whether my notebook is public or private. I currently have evernote for windows installed on my computer, but I've looked through the interface twice and was unable to find a setting for whether the notebook was private or not. This is contrary to what I read in this topic (http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/38821-how-do-i-make-my-public-notebook-private/) which says you can 'check the web client and see what the notebook status is there'. I can see no such status. I have tried the getting started guide and google, but found no responses that helped. I also tried clicking on properties > sharing and collaborating options but similarly was not informed of whether my notebook was public or private. 2) I read elsewhere that you are presented with the option of choosing to create either a 'private' or a 'public' notebook when creating a notebook. I tried creating a notebook and was presented with no such option, only a name to fill in. Am I doing something wrong? 3) By default, are notebooks private or public? I'm referring to the one you have when you first create your evernote account. 4) How do I make a notebook private? 5) What is the difference between a public notebook and a shared notebook? I chanced upon this blog post: http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2013/01/18/the-benefits-of-public-and-shared-notebooks/It marked a distinction between 'public' and 'shared'- at first I thought 'public' meant something would become searchable, and that 'shared' produced a link that you would need to use to access the notebook. However, this post (http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/28447-finding-public-notebooks/) seems to contradict that notion. Is there actually a difference? If so, what is it? Link to comment
