FEATURE REQUEST_Check for Duplicates


parabara

Idea

I have been using Evernote since 6 years ago. And now I have over 2000 notes in my account.

Need this feature to check for duplicates, especially for web clipped articles, because sometimes I found I clipped the same article several times in different time spots. It'll be nice if Evernote can enable this feature.

Thanks for your vote.

Hi.  I've managed lots of big databases,  and the problem you always find is that maintaining the content is as big a job as using it.  I save things to Evernote so I can find it again in searches,  and my process for duplicate entries is "delete 'em if you find 'em".  Once uploaded to the server,  deleting a note doesn't benefit you except in slightly smaller search results.  You may as well leave it there until it becomes a nuisance.  Plus: suppose you annotate one clip making it different from the other.  Or clipped a slightly different number of paragraphs.  How sophisticated must the comparison be?

My process as well.  If I happen to notice a duplicate I will delete it otherwise this falls into my don't care bucket.  For me EN is a big kitchen "junk" drawer.  As long as I can dig out what I need, I don't care if there is extra stuff in there.
