KWalker 0 Posted April 18, 2015 Share Posted April 18, 2015 I need a new productivity system for my work. I'm overloaded and its getting messy. I've heard about Evernote and thought it might be the thing I need, but I thought I'd check in with current users before I get started. Here's my situation: I'm a real estate photographer with one of the biggest agencies in the area. I shooting about 5 listings a day covering about a 50 mile radius. The agents use an internal system to send a photo request that goes to a Gmail account I share with the other photographer with all the data about the shoot (address, agent, sellers name & contact, who to shedule it with, notes, etc). Currently I use an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of everything for my shoots and billing. I color code each shoot so I can see what the status is (called & left message, scheduled, on hold, uploaded and billed). I like this system, but since I'm on the road all day, it's difficult to keep up with the barrage of photo request email, scheduling calls and tracking projects. We're just at the beginning of the super busy season and I'll be up to 8-10 listings a day within the next month and I can't afford to let things fall through the cracks. So here's what I'd like to do with EN:Have a "master list" of all my shoots with the data from the Gmail. I think I'd like it to be one big list as opposed to each project on its own, but I'm not sure. I did 226 listing in the 1st quarter this year. That seems like a lot to have as singles.Be able to tag or mark each listing with things like "scheduled", "left message", "uploaded", etc. Probably at least 5 tagsSchedule my shoots on my calendar and sync with iCalBe able to do this while I've got 5 minutes in between shoots while I'm in my car using my iPhone.What do you think? Can EV save my sanity? Link to comment
