    Thank you very much to both repliers to my post. I've refreshed my 6.21 installation and after that I've been able to update to 6.22.

    Thanks for your request @s2sailor. Reminders are a hot topic across a number of different forum threads and social media conversations related to our efforts to converge the UX. Thread tone ranges from the productive ("what are you going to do with reminders?") to the understandably impatient ("why haven't you implemented reminders yet?") all the way to imminent doom ("oh no! they're going to take reminders away!"). In response to your constructive question - thank you! - let me provide the following update: 1. Reminders are used by a relatively small cross-section of our user population (about 1%, believe it or not). That's why it's not the first thing we've focussed on. 2. We believe reminders are important. Partially because some of those 1% are our most engaged users, but also because reminders is functionality that helps you do more than simply remember things, by asking Evernote to surface something back to you at a relevant time, they help you accomplishing something. And we think that is important. A better design for reminders might get more than 1% of users taking advantage of it. 3. Finally, as they are implemented today, reminders are one of the most divergently designed functional elements of Evernote across all the devices we support - both from a UX and a functionality standpoint. Reminders are implemented, displayed, and controlled very differently across Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and the Web. Part of our journey this year has been about trying to converge the UX across all our devices, so that Evernote users can expect to access a common set of functionality in a predictable and coherent way across all the devices on which they use us. Obviously, we are applying this as a design principle, not as a design constraint - mobile phones have built-in cameras, and so we need to expose functionality on mobile devices for which there is a less-than-obvious corollary on a desktop system. The same applies to OS-specific capabilities (eg. Siri, Android widgets, etc.). But as much as possible, we'd like to make common features - like reminders - work the same way with the same UX and the same functionality across all devices. The reason we haven't shown anything about reminders yet is because we haven't yet decided how exactly to do that, both for the functionality that already exists and in terms of future-proofing against where we'd like to take reminders in the long run. When we have a design for reminders that we think satisfies all the criteria we have for it, we'll be more than happy to put it in front of you. Given the timelines we are on, it's hard to predict at this point whether that will be via a video or through an actual beta release. And a quick word of reassurance to anyone focussed on the imminent doom scenario: No, we're not taking reminders away. We're just trying to get them right. Back to lurking ian

    Hi All, Over the course of this series, you've seen many of the individual components of future Evernote versions. Now it's time to see what putting them all together looks like. In this installment of Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small chats with Eric, who is helping to launch the new mobile Evernote experience. Together they walk through a working version of the new mobile app, highlighting key features and major upgrades, and discuss plans for starting the early feedback process from Beta Program users.

    I love Evernote, but it's preventing me from putting in sensitive content. For example, I can't keep a personal journal notebook, because other people (i.e. girlfriend, family members, etc.) could one day be looking at those notes, especially since they know that I use Evernote often for many purposes. Evernote already has the ability to encrypt single notes. This is useful for things like storing passwords or other temporary sensitive content. But it's not practical to encrypt many notes one by one. I wish I could password-protect a whole notebook. This way, I can do a lot more with Evernote. If I can encrypt single notes, then why can't Evernote just allow me to encrypt entire notebooks? If reason behind this is because Evernote thinks one could lose a lot of data if a notebook password is forgotten, then perhaps Evernote can help recover the passwords through email. In the meantime, I'm stuck with using other apps (i.e. Pages, Day One, etc) to password-protect my content. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Today we released Windows 6.22 GA. It's available here! Fixed: - If you opened a note via your shortcuts or after searching for a tag, any links to other notes in your account would be broken. That defeated the whole purpose of having links so we fixed it. - Editing shared notes with images inside them would sometimes cause the app to crash. That's now a thing of the past. - Occasionally the app would crash when you clicked on a note in the note list, which you probably did quite often. But it should be smooth sailing now. - If you opened an image pasted from Snipping Tools, the app would sometimes freeze, but no longer. - You can now edit your notes to include hyperlinks with a UNC path (in other words, \\host-name\share-name\file_path). - Updates to templates - When you click on a note link in a tagged note, the app will now show you the note you wanted. A big improvement from before. - We tweaked the text on one screen to make it easier to read.

    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!

    If you delete a notebook with notes inside, the notes go to the trash. As long as you do not empty the trash, the notes can be recovered. But it is not possible to recover the notebook. So the best way to get things back to normal is to first recreate the deleted notebook as a new empty notebook. Then use a desktop client if possible, go to the trash, select all notes you want to restore and select the „Move notes to ...“ command to move the selected notes from trash into the new notebook. If on the web client or a mobile client, you can move one note at a time only.

    Wipe out the old installation with AppCleaner. Not only run it, but actively check ALL items in the AC-window to be uninstalled. When you reinstall, use the version from the EN Website, not the one from the AppStore. After installing, make sure it gets ALL permissions in the Macs settings, Security & Privacy.

    Folks, maybe time to back up a bit from the finger pointing; it's irrelevant to the case for notebooks. Fact: Evernote doesn't implement nested notebooks, for whatever reason. At least one Evernote employee has posted about level-of-effort to implement being a big factor; you may choose to believe it or not, but you should consider the publicly available Evernote API and implications on the search language, sharing and other UI (which must be implemented on five separate platforms, at least currently), not to mention the server and sync stuff, to really gauge the impact that that change would necessitate before making a judgment on their sincerity. Fact: nested notebook support is undeniably a very popular feature request. Frustration at the situation is real, and sometimes expressed politely and sometimes not so much, but adding support for nested notebooks would make a lot of Evernote users really happy. Fact: regardless of the lack of nested notebook support, Evernote is an extremely popular software application. How much more popular it would be with nested notebooks is anyone's guess. My take: I accept the level-of-effort explanation, particularly in a time when they're publicly aiming at something else (see the videos in the Behind the Scenes series: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/306-behind-the-scenes-series/). It's a familiar notion to me, as it's something that I often face in the software development work that I do (in my case, a 20+ year old architecture, though implemented solely on Windows rather than multiple platforms); re-architecting a large and aged and entrenched code base is not always (or even often) a trivial undertaking, no matter how much you want it to happen or what other new improvements it might unlock. Beyond that, adding nested notebook support probably wouldn't influence my use of Evernote a whole lot -- I don't use a lot of notebooks to start with, so nesting the few that I have would be pretty useless for my needs; stacks suffice just fine (hack through they are). But I'll tell you what: if they were implemented, I'd make sure I knew how they worked because 1) I'm interested in the Evernote architecture and range of usage in general, and 2) so that I could help out other users who might be having difficulty with them, just as I'm sure all of the other regulars participating here would, regardless of how they feel about the feature, just as we do with other features that we don't use or use infrequently.

    Due to this error I was unable to make a regular update. I had removed Evernote totally (all files, folders, registry keys, etc.). Unfortunately it turned out that I am unable to make clean installation either (so for now I’ve lost Evernote for Windows). I was trying to do it as a regular user, as an administrator, for all users, only for me, every combination possible – with the same error at the end. I have absolutely no issues with other applications with MSI installer. I don’t have any MSI-related policies applied. It is a bug in Evernote's installer. Error from the installer: The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2755. Error from bootstrap: Setup error: (.\Bootstrapper.cpp:984) 0x643: Fatal error during installation. My OS: Windows 10 Enterprise version 10.0.17763.864 I use tons of different software, I’m testing/comparing UX/UI features, so I’m installing/uninstalling lots of applications every week. Evernote setup is the only installer I have issues with. So I don’t think it is a “Windows problem”. It is a serious bug in Evernote introduced in 2015 or even earlier. Related topics (just a bunch of them): https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/120482-6192-upgrade-installation-failed No workarounds described in above topics works for me.

    I resolved my issue - there was a conflict between log in protocols. I was using my email address and password but had also set up google login. Once I used the google log in it worked fine.

    I did something dumb, and I apologise - I saw there were two topics with the same content so I 'hid' one - then realised that was the voting thread. Once hidden I have no way (that I know of) to 'unhide' something, so I moved this thread into the voting stream. Apologies if that confuses anyone... 🤒

    That’s so good to hear. I believe that if reminders will be build the right way the % of users will be increased. I would really like to know if part of the mobile update includes the browser’s tables capabilities. Many people now , including myself are mobile first, or just mobile. I would love to be able to do everything on my iPad.

    To the admins and forum creators: Might be considerable to open a forum section for dashboards and other creative things in which productivity and creativity works of Evernote users can be presented. We are all looking for solutions and ideas, i would say almost every single day. Sometimes it doesn't needs much but just a great input and a thought-provoking-impulse to find the way to a perfect and tightly fitting solution ... happy day

    Generated if you open Evernote in your Office? That's COOL. A dashboard which is highly flexible editable and with the possibility to implement content from different sources.. 6 pm then, showing a inner space screenshot of your fridges with recommendations what to buy and what products are necessary needed , where the product might be available and a pre-calculated route how you get all those things a. fastest way b. most economically way c. comparison of co² footprint (buy it now or buy it in one load weekly/monthly) ...

    Congrats to'the winners! I didn't know you could format a note to be a dashboard. After seeing everyone's examples, I'm so inspired. 2020 is going to be great!

    Windows tends to stick to Win+<something> for its keys. It could be a different program registered that sequence. Global hotkeys are a first-come-first-served type thing. And that's not a global hotkey for EN - it's just a standard accelerator sequence (as in, it will only work in EN, not when another program has focus) And it still WOMM! (Works On My Machine) (Win10Pro + current patchs, EN6.22.3)

    Congrats to the winners! I took inspiration to upgrade my dashboard. Sadly, I ran out of time to get it together enough to share it here. Maybe next time but thanks to all who shared. We're all winners because of that! 😊

    If we change from fragment view to card view, works well as before.

    The post just before yours suggests that if you only have one notebook, you can't delete it. Is that your situation? I find that when I have one of my notebooks selected and click on the horizontal 3-dot menu I get the drop-down shown below. I notice that the other option missing in your screenshots is "Set as default notebook," which would also be impossible if you only have one notebook.

    It is the communicated strategy from EN management to rebuild the software foundation, not to generate new functions. So I see them starting to deliver on the promise. Nothing wrong with a new neat and clean app, and furthermore with a unified user experience over mobile platforms. For me EN is a key piece of my paperless productivity setup. I do not need fancy stuff to play with, I need solid functions and high performance. For me they are on the right track with what they do, instead of selling socks. Maybe this marketing and gadget oriented thinking was what led into where we are with EN, and what they are fixing now. Just let the engineers sort it out !

    I appreciate the transparency and progress highlighted in this video. But man oh man everything they're showing seems so..... basic. Much needed? Yes. But definitely foundational. It's hard to imagine how EN got in this situation to begin with. Anyway, glad they're making an honest go of it.

    I'm ineligible for the contest (non-US Resident), but I'll still share I use my daily journal note as my home dashboard It's rebuilt each morning from a template The template includes info and links for frequently accessed information This includes Evernote notes, files, web sites, ... In addition to the links, I also insert screenshots In the Activities Log, I include checkboxes for daily reminders and copy my events from the calendars The calendar section includes links to the calendars/reminders I reference. I try to make sure my events are included in the first entry, my calendar app The Tasks section displays my task notes exported to a spreadsheet I also include a photo from my location. The mountains in the background are the Olympic Mountains in Washington state across the St >Is any of that information dynamic at all? Or must it be built from scratch, every morning, with a ton of copy/paste actions going on....? The links are static from a template; screenshots are a "ton of copy/paste" actions I include Task/Project lists generated by Applescript

    Have upgraded to Catalina. Now EN refuses to even start! Any ideas? Thanks David

    I upgraded to Catalina yesterday, and the Evernote app will not open. I click the dock icon, the icon bounces for a while and then stops. Activity Monitor shows Evernote used 0.01 CPU seconds, and there is no current activity. Click and hold the dock icon. The popup menu says "Application not responding" and offers a Force Quit option. I've tried twice from the dock, and went to the app store and did an Open from there with the same result. I have EN version 7.13 installed, which I believe is the latest version. All other apps are working correctly, except for mSecure, which has exactly the same problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am using the web version for now.

    I am having the same issue when I use voice dictation on my Android phone. Keeps repeating phrases over and over. Love Evernote. Please fix this.

    You could record an audio within the same note when you open a note and start typing.... Which should then act as a stopwatch of sorts because both can be done simultaneously. Then delete your audio attachment once you're done. Not pretty... but doable... and totally nonsensical. Like an inbuilt timer. It really depends on your use case... But I highly doubt Evernote will give us this one. Also, it doesn't seem like there have been many requests on this thread over the years...
