ARJester 2 Posted June 17, 2015 Share Posted June 17, 2015 Evernote is clearly superior to OneNote in the ability to sync across platforms and devices, which is why I use it, but there is one major difference that I wish Evernote would adopt, besides being able to be pretty and colorful instead of drab gray, and that is the sublevel within the notes. OneNote has the Notebook, then Sections (and even Section Groups which is really great), then Pages. This was great for what I need it for in my work. I can create the Notebook as the Organization with which I communicate/have meetings with etc, the individual person as the Section and then a different page for each topic we discuss and keep a running record of how an issue is progressing that is easy to locate. Evernote has a different hierarchy structure that is not as helpful. Evernote has Notebook Stacks, then Notebooks, then Notes which isn't the same type of organization because it creates a more cumbersome visual in the left sidebar. I would have to make the Organization the Stack, then give each person their own Notebook, then create a new Note for each topic discussed. That's chaos on the left side when it's all said and done when you meet with hundreds of people over nine organizations any given year. So now, I just have the Organization as the Notebook. Each person and topic together are a new note which means everything is just thrown together in the same window which puts the chaos in the main window which is not ideal but better than putting it all on the left. This means every time I talk to someone about an issue, have a meeting etc, even if it is the same person I've spoken with before about something else, it's a new note and there is no way to group similar notes under one heading in the main window without making a new notebook. All of this to say that I would love Evernote to add another organizational layer under the Note Link to comment
