two accounts and want to swap data from one to the other

Recommended Posts



I have two accounts in evernote, personal and business (created as personal). two different email addresses.


I started using the personal one for work and then decided to create one just for work.


I created these before I knew I could just change the email in my personal account to the work email.


I now have tried to delete the work account and change the email in the personal evernote but it keeps saying that the work email is in use although I deleted the account (no notes in it either)


Without exporting the personal and importing to the work account is there a way for me to change my associated email in my personal account? (besides contacting evernote)


Also why can I not keep two tabs open in Chrome with different evernote accounts. It keeps changing to most recent used in second tab. Annoying as hell.

Yes. There is a limitation of the maximum number of writeable notebooks you can share from a free account (I think it's still one), but you can share unlimited notebooks as read-only, and links and pictures will come along.

How is it done for all I see is social and email links?

I don't understand this question.


You share notebooks individually. Somewhere in the notebook info you should find a way to share it; for example, in the WIndows client, I just right-click on the notebook, and select "Share Notebook", and go from there.

Sorry, no punctuation in that line.


Well, what I figured out, (for anyone else having a similar issue) is to do this.


In Windows Client


First export all of the notebook by clicking on the notebook and then right click export




File / add another user (for free account, paid account can access multiple accounts)

login in as the other user

File / import / Evernote export files

follow the prompts and you will have all the notes in a folder called Imported Notebook


No links this way but all notes are there including Word attachments


This is easier than the sharing option. Can be done for individual notes too.

If you want a one-shot, then this works. If you want to share notes back and forth actively, then this doesn't work. Sharing notebooks works fine, and is not that difficult.
