Arpy 6 Posted March 17, 2015 Share Posted March 17, 2015 Hi Just started using Evernote. I would like to be able to both browse and seach IN CONTEXT so as to be able to easily recreate the full flavor of a meeting or discussion or even random thoughts. That means I want to be able to browse sequentially, or search to a specific section. Am thinking of creating a 'running_log' note. Every day, enter the date. For 1-1 notes, enter the person. For meeting notes, enter the meeting. For product-specific notes, enter the product. For the day's planned actions, enter 'next actions'. Same for end of day, planning for next day. Add a colon after every 'tag' so that I don't get any 'false hits'. But, I could probably do this just as well in any old editor (just create one large running file with my personalized 'tags' inserted appropriately). Am I overlooking Evernote capabilities that I should use? (I am leery of dividing my notes into 'buckets', because then I have to remember which 'bucket' I put things in. On the other hand, maybe I could put 'support data' in buckets and point to them?) So I guess I could summarize this by saying that I believe hierarchy (buckets) is a great way to manage complexity. But, over time, an original set of buckets my no longer be appropriate. Additionally, this 'hierarchy' can INCREASE search time if not done thoughtfully. I want to minimize search time. Thanks for any tips you can provide. Regards,Arpy Link to comment
