rogbar 18 Posted April 6, 2014 Share Posted April 6, 2014 I work on films and use Evernote to organize all my notes, research, plans, drawings, etc. for the entire production. I create a separate notebook for each scene. Into each notebook goes everything, and each note is tagged with the name of the department that note applies to (i.e., Camera, Art, Locations, etc.) So if I want to meet with a particular department, I just go to Tags, and select the tag for that department, and all my notes for that department - from all the different scenes - appear in one place. Very handy. But let's say I want to meet with multiple departments about a particular set (such as John's House) or location (say, Vancouver or New York). It would be great if I could tag each Notebook with its set or location. Then I could just isolate the scenes that take place in John's House, or just the scenes we're shooting in Vancouver. Obviously, it would be very inefficient to tag each note with Set and Location, as there are just too many notes. So the workaround I use now is to add a Set and Location tag to the name of the Notebook, i.e., the notebook entitled "Scene 1 - Ext. John's House" is now entitled "Scene 1 - Ext. John's House #JohnHouse #Vanc". I click on Notebooks in the sidebar, search for #JohnHouse or #Vanc and I see the list of notebooks for just those scenes. It's a little bit of a kludge, and would be a lot cleaner if I could simply tag the notebooks. Is there any way to do that? And if there isn't, this is my feature request to add the capability to tag notebooks, not just notes. Link to comment
