    Think of the Dashboard of a car for easy access to information (speed,...) Apple users Think Different, also known as The Crazy Ones

    How about an anti-dashboard dashboard, just EN itself? I open EN to the Inbox, typically empty, and then with one click can access tags or saved searches for task info (named such that most used are on top of either list), one click the shortcuts across the top, or Ctrl+Q for a dynamic search (sometimes the search bar). The shortcut Searchz contains a table of medium use searches enacted by a PhraseExpress hotkey, so two clicks to those. Not elegant or pretty I suppose, but fluid and gets me where I need to get in short order.

    This is the dashboard that I have in the community notebook that I keep. Clicking the different "tiles" takes you that section of the notebook.

    Wow - some impressive work shown here so far! I'm also not eligible for the contest as such, using Evernote on mobile and desktop (Android/ Windows) My minimalist dashboard is mainly driven by Evernote + Filterize. It’s not clever, it’s not glossy, but it does the job. The ‘buttons’ (like the arrowed 04_soon) are hyperlinked images in a small table which has cells the same colour as the button. The link goes to another Table of Contents note generated by Filterize from a search: 'what reminders are due in the 7 days from tomorrow?' I actually made the table twice. Once with real links in cells, which I then screen grabbed and chopped apart (in an image editor app) to put a picture of a cell inside an actual cell which was given the same link. My excuse? - It does give me a larger target for tapping on a mobile device screen, and it did seem like a good idea at the time. This table is small enough that it appears in full on my phone screen. I have a link to the note from my home screen. It’s all I need to navigate around my 50,000(-ish) note account quickly. The “01_” style numbering was so I could quickly allocate the tags which generate the sub-dashboards these links call up. “Lists” is a catchall addition - I can have a dashboard listing more dashboards of the last notes saved in some of my focus notebooks. There are entries for ‘Evernote’ forinstance for issues and tips, and ‘photography’ because I take pictures and clip locations and ‘how to’ pages to try out. The emergency contact entry is so someone can get into my phone in the (hopefully unlikely) event that I get hit by a bus - and so I can get hold of my dentist when I need to. It’s all driven by either note tags or reminder dates, triggering listings on dashboards created by Filterize. So these links actually go to 'dashboards' - Table of Contents notes - which in some cases are listings of other dashboards of further subsets of notes... Look: it works for me, OK? 😎

    Great convo folks and thanks for the kudos. A few points to clarify about my Evernote usage. I use Evernote on my mac, windows, android phone and iPad. Hence, it is interoperable across all devices and form factors. A dashboard for me is a notebook, not a note. I call it 'Weekly'. Each week is represented as a single note in the notebook. I use a single color coded metric (Good, Average, Bad) week based on a qualitative assessment at the end of each week. At the end of the year, I just count the number of good, average and bad weeks and thats about it. Infact, I keep an active counter, incremented weekly. Its the first thing you will notice on each note. e.g. '[G] 15 [A] 23 [ B ] 11' . My mantra is to get some really good weeks in a year, those will have a greater impact and ensure your bad weeks are contained or spaced out. Thats it! The most important thing for me is to track recent weeks and what small changes or nudges i can do in my life to recover from bad and average weeks and get to atleast one good week a month. Its similar to Seinfield's don't break the chain concept but applied on weeks instead of individual habits. I have decided to format each week (each note) as a single column long table to make it nicely formatted and scrollable on mobile, nothing else. I achieve the above views through built in Evernote layout options on desktops (both mac and windows) The view consists of three columns, the middle column is changed to card view and sorted alphabetically in descending order Note that this is Evernote's application layout, not an individual note's layout. @robinnj Each card ends with a picture of a coloured square which Evernote automatically picks up as the card picture in the middle column (Evernote layout). The middle column's width is adjustable with drag and drop, at the expense of the note's width. This is not a problem since I am already using a single column note and can accomodate squeezing the note to make more room for the middle column. I also use a set of tightly controlled tags and saved searches to keep me 'in the flow'. 've been evolving this system since 2016, all on Evernote (<:3) and have become better at practicing my own system with inspiration from David Allen's GTD, 'The One Thing', 'Atomic Habits', 'The Habit Loop', ''The Secret Weapon GTD', etc and above all this article from Scott Adams. Too bad this is a US only thread, could get some Evernote love here in Down Under (that's Australia for the uninitiated).. Thanks @Sayre Ambrosio for answering @robinnj correctly.

    Hello everyone, We’re so inspired by all the creative ways our customers use Evernote that we've launched a new contest. To participate, just share the "home dashboard" or "homepage" you've created within Evernote. A home dashboard is a central note that you reference when you open Evernote that makes your workflow more efficient or helps you figure out what to do next. We believe your participation will inspire our community to get even more organized in the new year and help us think about new features and capabilities that could benefit everyone in 2020. Plus, you could win cool Evernote swag! Please be sure to enter your submission by December 17th and ‘Like’ the ones that inspire you. This Contest is governed by the Official Rules. By sharing a home dashboard, you are agreeing to the Official Rules. Contest Rules Timing: The contest will run from Tuesday, 12/3, 7am PST through Tuesday, 12/17, 11:59pm PST Eligibility: US resident Qualifying submission: Post a screenshot of your homepage to this forum Include a blurb on how you use it Judges: A panel of five Evernote employees (including our CEO and representatives from PM, Design, and Marketing) Categories: Professor of productivity Captain of creativity Everything but the kitchen sink Winners: 3 winners (one in each of the categories above) will be announced in this forum on 12/19 Prize: Evernote gear which may include apparel, canvas totes, notebooks, and stickers Here’s a little inspiration to get you started: Edit: We've received a lot of questions as to why the contest is restricted to the US. We would have loved to have everyone participate but unfortunately the rules for contests vary greatly by country and within that, by locality within countries. Therefore, it is unfeasible for Evernote to comply with all global regulation required to run a worldwide contest. That said, we greatly value everyone's input and encourage everyone to share their home dashboards!

    @Ian Small I understand that there is a LOT of back end integration and alignment to be done and this is exciting, but; where is the customer engagement ? Please tell us high level timelines for plans - Being in the dark is far worse (in my opinion) than not knowing at all and I think that the majority of paying customers who still remain would be willing to accept long time frames - EVEN IF you needed to change them In the future. Zero transparency on the time frames feels like there is little planning, customer focus or accountability internally (for me). Apologies for the rant but I genuinely love your product and just want to know what's happening!

    There's a whole raft of considerations Evernote might have there... You'll gather from other threads in the Forums here that a number of users have very passionate views about their own particular favourite feature - and there are dozens of them, from copy/ pasting text styles to better editing options, multiple reminders, compatibility with new image formats, calendars... So if your special request is listed along with thousands of others for late 2028, you'll be understandably upset; or maybe Evernote (sensibly) elect not to post anything more than a rolling year's projected launches - so the other 900 requests that haven't been listed then get very upset - "why aren't you even thinking about my request!!" Either way - lots more posts and emails and arguments about relative merits and priorities, none of which is actually getting any coding done toward any of it. And now Evernote does have some up and coming competitors (though they're not that great yet...) it would be a commercially sensitive gift to disclose their future development plans. The competition can start working on their own feature development with confidence - and maybe throw in a few unlisted bells and whistles so their options continue 'better' than Evernote for the next few years. ...And I may have mentioned before than Evernote products work with various OS's and browsers in all their mysterious forms - all of which have developers of their own, dedicated to moving Evernote's goalposts around on their own schedule. What are the chances that some random development in 2020 means a major rewrite which delays things until 2021... To paraphrase a well-used quote, "Hell hath no fury like a customer scorned" - cue a flood of "you promised!!" hate mail... There's more, but you get the picture: if Evernote say anything, it's a hostage to misfortune. Better to say nothing and just get on with it.

    Try created:20180101 -created:20190101 for 2018 notes. Adjust the 18 and 19 for other years. Simpler version is created:2018* -created:2019*. Same applies for adjusting for other years. Syntax for this is find all notes created from 2018 on but remove all notes created from 2019 on.

    Hi, @sidney@huber.com.br, and welcome to the forums! I think you're idea's a good one, and you've described very well the problem (which I've often encountered) of adding material to the top of a clipped note. In Android, at least, it's significantly harder to clear the clipped Web material's formatting; and it's not easy in Windows. @gazumped, I think that for once you've missed the issue. There isn't any "Web clipper" in Android; you just use the Share feature in the browser and share it to a new Evernote note. That's what Sidney is talking about, and perhaps that is what you mean by "clipper." And honestly, I don't see creating and merging a whole separate note as an easy solution. IAC, I'd like a little more flexibility in sharing/clipping Web pages in Android.

    Try using the Import folder capability of EN. Create a folder on your PC and use Tools - Import folders to establish a connection to a notebook. Then drag the 10 PDFs to that folder and you will get 10 notes in EN. You can then tag, title, whatever and then move to the notebook of choice. If you are talking about this forum it may be your PC dictionary that did the checking.

    These dashboards are notes. As such you can view them on any EN app. Maybe Mac users embrace their creative sides more?

    I am a Mac user. But as Sayre said, all this is able to be done on both platforms. "Dashboards" are just regular notes. The only difference is that they are ones people created for a reusable purpose. And spent time on formatting them further.

    I think that this is not exactly possible. However, the search syntax allows you to search for all notes containing one or more checkboxes: todo:* for all notes containing unchecked checkboxes: todo:false for all notes containing checked checkboxes: todo:true

    Just went to the EmEditor-website, quite impressive when you have to handle the one or other very large file (structured ones as well, as CSV-structured data sets). Just made a little math on printing the 17GB mentioned above. If this is plain text, it translates into 27,2 Mio pages of 80 lines of text each. On my home office laser, it would take 5,2 years to print (without any downtime) and leave a stack of paper 1,5km high. Pretty amazing if you think about it.

    That's exactly why I did it. I had it as just a text based system earlier on and change it when some of the older residents that use it mentioned that sometimes they couldn't see the text without blowing everything up. Not gonna lie, it also gave me an excuse to pay for Canva which I love lol.

    Shane D. I think some of us are a little thrown back about the "Dashboard Contest". I believe "Dashboard" is a common Mac feature, but is foreign to us Windows users. Perhaps you could post a followup with a little more explanation as to what "Dashboards" are, whether the contest is for just Mac users or all users, etc. To many of us, like Corybe, ewbeyer, and myself, this is a new and interesting concept within Evernote. Thanks

    So the "Dashboard" is in fact a Note, just one formatted for a specific purpose. I personally have a "Dashboard" notebook and a new note is generated everyday with my generated "Dashboard" which is things I look at and need daily.

    Cory... You're not the only one to get struck with ...WOW ! Shane D's contest was the first I have ran into the term "Dashboard" in Evernote. I've heard reference to the Home, or Start Page, but I think this is the first I've heard of a Dashboard being in what is apparently fairly popular use; and I've been an Evernote User forever, starting back with the beginning program and there were no mobile apps or paid subscriptions. In fact, as I'm a Windows & Android user, I'm wondering if maybe this is a Mac phenomenon???

    Fantastic post and great dashboards folks, loving it! I've been feeding my OCD for almost 4 years now (few days left :)), here's a snapshot of what my dashboard currently looks like. Essentially, I break it down to 52 weeks, each week consolidating activities from projects, tasks, a bit of journal and daily drivers. Its a very elongated single column table to make it easy on mobile interfaces.

    Good idea. Or copy out the note I want. You know an editor for a 17GB text file? Tried notepad real quick and that's a no-go.

    +1 on shame not applicable for US non-residents, but happy to share... My Dashboard is within Evernote and I use Filterize. I capture as much as I can into Evernote, be it handwritten notes, scans, emails, receipts - they all go into my Inbox for processing. I apply tags as part of my routine to clear out the Inbox - Filterize then sorts my notes into the various cells on my Dashboard Table. I check the dashboard daily and then use it for my weekly review. If I have a busy schedule I just copy and paste my Agenda into the Todays Schedule Cell. The dashboard is available on all my devices as a shortcut. I tend to do most of my processing on laptop.

    Hi Alan. I'm also running one laptop on Mint but I've made do so far with the browser version of Evernote - my main need is to view, clip and make notes rather than do any serious level of database maintenance. Evernote Web had done reasonably well for me so far - though I tend not to use the beta version; it's still missing too many options. There are threads in the Forums about running Evernote on Linux via Wine, but my 'backup' laptop is seriously underpowered and I'm doubtful about its speed in that setup.

    The portable launcher linked to in ab1kenobee's post of Feb 15 works just fine. I'm in a similar position, not having admin rights on my work PC, but the portable launcher works perfectly with the current version of EN, and allows EN to update itself in the normal way.

    I use evernote as a research notebook for academic research and it would be awesome to be able to scroll through the content of one note directly into the contents of the next note in my notebook. Currently, browsing my notes is clunky as I have to click on one note, scroll through it, click on the next note, then scroll through it, and so on. If scrolling to the bottom of one note automatically opened the next note this would make browsing my notebook easier and more like flipping through a physical research notebook.

    My secret process for getting links into Android notes is to set them up via Ctrl+K on the desktop. You guys seem to find it easy to move cursors around in Android.. I don't. I tried for an hour or so to create links as above, but got nowhere (though I did visit Evernote's blog repeatedly!...)

    This sorely needs to be improved. Right now, Right Ctrl-Right Shift works (on the Windows Desktop client) to switch to RTL, but whenever creating bulleted/numbered lists, it jumps back to LTR.

    Hi , I think it is would be cool and useful if the Table in evernote could do some basic Calculation like excel , no need so complex like what excel do , but some calculation between cell. This can Help a lot when someone want to sum the value of ingredient for example or many things that need some basic calculation . Well , that is what tables usually used for , isn't it . It would be much help rather than manually calculate the value one by one in the table . Hope you would reconsider this Idea , Thank you .

    Amazing. It's been over a year since this post was originally made, we've had MANY updates since then and this issue still hasn't been resolved. I've actually had better customer service from Walmart than from Evernote. Like others have said, I think it's time to move on from this app.

    Hmm I counter this problem for a while. It seems to me that I can only change the color of the font rather than the highlight when I call out the "show colors" option under format. Does it mean there is only one color available for highlight at the moment?

    I'm a happy Evernote user, but I miss a feature many people have asked for and will greatly appreciate - support for LaTeX formulas. If may sound complicated, but integration should be actually extremely simple. Here's how it could work: 1) Similarly to URL-to-hyperlink conversion, a LaTeX formula could be automatically generated by converting text surrounded by specific characters ($ in LaTeX). For example, I can type "Today we will discuss how equations of the form $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ can be solved" 2) Finally, the formula text can be converted to an image. Luckily, there are many online services that given the LaTeX source produce a PNG image (even with transparency and custom color by some services). So the only thing the Evernote team needs to implement is to provide the option to automatically and manyally convert a piece of text to an image by querying some well-established online service. So adding LaTeX math support boild down to implementing a simple UI feature! Now it sounds simple, but this could be a selling point to a huge amount of people (especially in academia). I'm not aware of any good note taking tool that has seamless formula integration and synchronization. Even in the current Evernote state the functionality can be emulated by dragging LaTeX formula images to Evernote. However, this is tedious and does not facilitate modifications. Therefore, it would be good after the image has been acquired, the source text to be saved along for future modifications. What do you think, Evernote staff? P.S. I just saw on your blog that you're supporting the use of Evernote in schools, etc. This makes the suggested feature even more prominent.

    If you already know that there's a topic that discusses it (and there is: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/96180-nesting-multiple-notebooks-creating-sub-notebooks/; it's been rather thoroughly discussed), then it's a better idea to add your vote and rationale there, rather than starting a new topic. That helps to keep the forums organized and focused. Thank you.

    Yes, we really need another discussion on multi-level notebooks. Evernote generally doesn't comment on these questions. >>Implementing multi-level notebook it's not difficult. Please provide details on how this would be done? A model is the parent-child relationship implemented for tags; adding a parent field to the tag record. A single level (Stacks) was implemented by adding a text field to the notebook record. Also a change is required to the UI to provide use of this feature. Any such work would require funding. It's a fact that that the majority of users are unwilling to pay for this product.

    Hello Evernote community, I love Evernote, but a feature I miss a lot is to show to-do notes in a graphical view. My personal preference is a personal kanban board. As I'm a developer, I made this proof of concept: it's a web app that extracts notes that belong to the "Kanban" notebook and depending on the tag (backlog, this_week, today, done) it distributes the notes across a kanban board.. This is what I have today: Reading notes from my Evernote accountParsing notes to get a brief description, note color, owner and reminder. Do you think it is worth? Would you use it? I'm planning to release a v1.0 with a simple web interface where you can select the notebook, and the columns (tags) to display. Everytime you visit your page the board is redendered from your Evernote account. Best regards JF

    I just fired up Evernote after almost 2 years of inactivity. I just got a Samsung Tablet S3 and I love the pen. I would consider upgrading to Premium if Evernote supported the s-pen using the Samsung Android SDK. This would reduce the lag greatly and probably offer more features. http://developer.samsung.com/galaxy/pen
