ios Business card reader integration with Linkedin get's lost with group emails

Recommended Posts

(I meant "business card reader on the topic, but can't edit it now nor delete and re-post, if there's any admin reading this, please help :) Sorry for the mistake)
Hello there, on IOS client (currently running 7.5.311939-5977e21 - Beta) when I try to scan a business card that has a group email (ie. bakers@bakeryplus.com) Evernote fetches what seems to be the most likely Linkedin match, which however might not be the one on the biz card (it seems email overpasses name check) so I ended up scanning 3 biz cards from the same group (and same group mail on all cards) and Evernote understood it as the same person.
Currently I see no way of fixing or working around that, as in turning off Linkedin sync on-the-fly and back on for the next biz card.
Is this working as design? Can we improve? Anyone experienced this already?

I fixed your title for you.


I have seen a trick mentioned of scanning a blank card (or the plain backside of one) which then (allegedly) forces Evernote to ask you for all the details,  but that's not exactly a workaround here - could you redact the email address on all the cards?  I don't scan many cards,  so haven't found this a problem.  Worth submitting a support ticket,  though if you're a free user you may not get anything more than a ticket number.  Would be interesting to know what scanner you're using here...
