    FacileThings is a personal management system that supports the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology. Actually, the application has been designed for you to follow the GTD workflow, helping you create the habits needed to manage your life without stress. It allows you to integrate with some of the most widespread productivity tools, including Evernote. Evernote can be used both to capture stuff and to keep reference material, two very important issues in any GTD system. We have recently updated the intregration with Evernote, gracefully managing the Evernote's rate limits, so you don't miss any updates event if you're an Evernote power user. Here's all the information you need to work with FacileThings and Evernote integrated: Connection and configuration To connect FacileThings with your Evernote account you have to go to the Account option, Integration section, and click on the Connect Evernote button: Once you have authorized FacileThings to access to your Evernote data, the settings option will be shown: You can enable or disable any of the two purposes of this integration: Capture stuff. To capture things with Evernote into the FacileThings inbox, you have to check the “I want to get my Evernote notes in my Inbox” option and pick the Evernote notebook you want to use for that purpose. This way, all the notes that you create in that notebook will appear in your FacileThings inbox. Reference Material. To use other Evernote notebooks to support your FacileThings projects, check the “I want to use my Evernote notebooks as Project support material” option. This way you can associate each project to an Evernote notebook, and all their notes will appear on the Reference Material list of the project. Processing rules If you want, you can organize your notes in Evernote according to your FacileThings organization. For this you have a set of processing rules that you can customize as you like: For each of the lists, Next Actions, Calendar, Waiting For, Done, Someday/Maybe, Reference Material and Trash, you can set three possible actions by clicking on “edit” (1): Do nothing. When you move an item related with an Evernote note to that list, nothing will happen with the original note. Move it to a notebook. When you move an item to that list, the original note will be simultaneously moved to the Evernote notebook you have specified. Optionally you can add a tag, if it helps you organize it better. Delete it. When you move an item to that list, the original note will be deleted (actually, Evernote will send it to a notebook called Trash, from where you can recover it.) If you activate the “Update Evernote notes with their FacileThings tags” parameter (2), the tags you add to the FacileThings item will also be added to the original note in Evernote. Automatic and immediate synchronization The notes are automatically synced. When you create or update a note in Evernote (in the notebook you use as inbox or any other notebook you have associated with a project), Evernote sends FacileThings a message so the note can be updated. It may take a few seconds, but synchronization is almost immediate. If you made the change with an Evernote local app (mobile, tablet or desktop), the signal will reach FacileThings once the note has been synchronized with the Evernote server. When it comes to a new note, a new item is created in FacileThings, with the title and tags of the note, and its content copied in the “Notes” section. When it comes to modifying a note that already exists in FacileThings, the content of the note is copied back, but the title will be updated only if the item is still in the Inbox (we understand that the description you could give after processing the element is more significant within the GTD environment than the original title). Notes viewer The task editor allows you to view the Evernote notes as you see them in Evernote: The content of the Evernote note is displayed in HTML format and all the resources associated are included: images, PDF and audio files. As a matter of performance and space we do not “copy” all those resources into FacileThings, so you must be logged in Evernote to see them (if you can’t see them, you just need open a new browser tab and log in Evernote.) If you need to edit the original note, click one of the links that appears above the note. Thanks to this viewer, you can use the Evernote mobile app to capture images and voice notes in FacileThings when you are out there. Capture them in the notebook you use as a bridge to FacileThings, and they will appear in your Inbox. Support material for projects When you associate an Evernote notebook to a project, all its notes are imported, so they are always at hand in the Reference Material list of the project. Like the rest of notes, when they are modified in Evernote, the content is updated in FacileThings. Rate limits Evernote imposes rate limits to third-applications users. This means that the number of accesses you make to your Evernote data from FacileThings (during sync processes) has an hourly limit. If that limit is reached, Evernote blocks your user for a period of time and no data synchronization will take place until Evernote removes that lock again. Evernote does not indicate what the limit is, but it encourages developers to follow some guidelines in order to offer the best possible experience to the end user: Make economical use of Evernote API requests. Notify the users when they exceed the rate limits so that they know why the data is no longer synchronized and when the service will be restored. We have tried to optimize the synchronization process to the maximum. Still, if you are an Evernote power user and reach the limit at some point, you will immediately receive an email notifying at what time the synchronization service will be restored. Also, all the sync processes that will take place when your user is locked will be rescheduled to be executed again when the lock is released. Thus, although with delay, all changes should be synchronized at the end.

    Solved: It ended up there were 2 instances of Evernote running, and I was clicking on the old one. Once the old one was removed everything worked fine.

    I'm not a Safari user - Chrome or Firefox. Sounds like I should take the plunge and update.

    Yes, let us wait and see. A lot of people burned a ton of money betting against Tesla already. Space X cut the cost of sending a ton of cargo into orbit by half. This is a lot and explains the curve of space shots. But it seems they balance on a narrow path between ambition and financing. Wish them luck. With EN the task is different. I think they currently rebuild a mayor part of their aged code base. This is a lot of work without visible results. I hope they take their time and release when ready. And I hope this will be sooner than later. However, dark mode is one thing that is not very high on my personal agenda. Got it with iOS 13 now and am thinking about turning it off !

    Hey @PinkElephant I liked the way you put that... So yeah... I don't know about that stuff either. However, I think both his companies have achieved so much in so little time, compared to what I perceive as industry norms, not withstanding that NASA also took less then 10 years to put someone on the moon. And even in NASA's situation, I think it could be argued that it's stunning results were achieved through JFK's leadership and inspiration, to get his people to reach further than what they thought was possible. But SpaceX' results (see image) speaks volumes, and is testament to their ability to get things done efficiently, fast, and effectively. And in this case it is 'rocket science'! So if Elon and team can do all that rocket science so good and so fast, then so too can @Ian Small and team give us dark mode for Windows! 😉 I might have to look into setting up some EN lobby group... lol

    No, each member should have their own account. They don't all have to be Premium accounts, but be aware of account limits Premium account(s) would share Notebook(s) with the other team members (uploads are charged to the notebook owner's allowance). Minimal notebooks are better (use tags for organization) Have you considered a Business account?

    This is still an issue - a very annoying issue at the end of September 2019

    Hi All, Some of you reached out concerned about not being able to provide feedback for this issue. In general, we close replies on community announcements as they are meant to be informative, and not a location for ongoing discussion. In the past, when we've allowed commentary on announcements the conversations tend to get off topic quickly, and make it more difficult for users to easily find the information they're looking for. If you have feedback on this issue, please provide that here: As always, feel free to reach out to me via DM if you have any other questions!

    I believe you are correct. They are adding new features, charging more, but not fixing current issues...

    Hi All, Starting with Apple’s upcoming release of Safari 13, many extensions will no longer be supported in their current form. Due to the nature of these changes, if you choose to update to Safari 13 it will affect your ability to use the Evernote Web Clipper extension until we are able to implement an update and publish it to the Mac App Store. Please note: 1. We are diligently working to update the Evernote Web Clipper to meet the new extension requirements for Safari 13. Until that time, users who upgrade their browser to Safari 13 will not be able to use the Evernote Web Clipper. 2. If you are not updating to macOS Catalina/Safari 13, you can continue to use the Evernote Web Clipper extension. 3. For a small number of Evernote Business users, it may be a few months before they are able to use Evernote Web Clipper in macOS Catalina/Safari 13. If you are one of the affected users, we will send you a separate email with more information. If you are affected by these changes, you can still clip/send content to Evernote by doing the following: Keep using your current version of Safari Use the Evernote Web Clipper on a different web browser Use our Gmail and Outlook email integrations Forward messages to your Evernote email address (Premium & Business only)
