    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? 😎

    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.

    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.

    +1, @s2sailor. Seriously, keeping drug deal records on Evernote? Dumb, not to mention, as @gazumped points out, a direct violation of the TOS. You might as well just start planning what your prison tats will be. The first two paragraphs of the vice.com article are: My comments: Good. I'm glad. And if anyone has someone suffering through addiction in their family, or works as a counselor with addicts, they should be glad too. The second paragraph is an absurd, illogical jump from the first. "Users" -- presumably everyday people living legal and unharmful lives -- are not going to have "aspects" of those lives made "available to third parties" unless they start doing illegal stuff. Suggestion to an entrepreneur: make an online data storing system that does not preclude illegal activity in its TOS, and that promises not to comply with warrants and subpoenas. Then your drug-dealing and human-trafficking and otherwise evil customers will feel more secure. Sheesh.

    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

    +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.

    I am a premium member and just tried to upload a 243 mb video clip to a folder, got pop up saying file size limit over the 200 mb limit. Give me a break! 200 mg is nothing, should allow at least 500 mb.

    Tools - Options - Navigation and uncheck Match tags by word prefix in the Tag Picker will do it for Tag Picker (Alt+Shift+t) searches. Can't do it for tag assignment (Alt+Ctrl+T) though, it still works from the front of the tag only. So probably won't give you what you want.

    I think EN is sort of a Swiss knife: Able to do many things, maybe each one not as good as dedicated special programs, but in combination better for many use cases. For me the killer feature is the ability to store all sort of information in one place, structure it flexibly (without duplicates) and retrieve what I need very fast and easy. The ability to take notes or to import stuff by scanning with the mobile app comes along, but for me mainly supports the main usage. Other nice features are sharing, pdf annotations etc. I doubt there is a main use case. As a privat company, EN needs a sound percentage of paying individual and professional users to stay in business.

    Thanks @CalS... another little nugget saved to my Using-Evernote notebook. I knew how to pin a program like EN to the Taskbar, but didn't think to pin a shortcut to a specific EN note, to the desktop, nice. Having said that my Desktop is devoid of any shortcuts as I learned years ago that this is one step to speeding up my PC, not sure if that's still relevant in 2019/2020. One thing to be aware of, when using desktop shortcuts to specific EN notes, is that when clicking the shortcut, prior to the EN program being opened/started, the note you wish to view will be hidden behind the main program window, if when you last viewed the note, any note, it was NOT viewed in Full-Screen. So, to be sure it is viewed on top of EN program window, make sure you viewed your last note in full screen, via double clicking or CTRL+ENTER'ing a note. Windows Desktop Shortcuts -PROCESS: Right-click Desktop Select: New>Shortcut Highlight EN Note in Note-list, or click inside note editor window, then: CTRL+ALT+L (to create a link) Add link to Shortcut window > Click Next Name the Shortcut Cheers

    I would like the ability to copy all the tags from one note and paste them into another note. Here is how I imagine this functionality working: Right-click a note in the Note List. Select Copy Tags from the menu. Right-click a different note in the Note List. Select Paste Tags. Both notes now contain the same tags.

    OK, so what you're asking for is that Evernote, when it detects that you have a notebook that contains only one note, automatically opens that note? Seems like it would be work wasted on something that probably rarely happens in the realm of Evernote users, most of whom have multiple notes in each notebook. But hey, it might happen. In the mean time, I think that what you might try is making a shortcut to that note, which will appear in your Shortcuts list, then you can tap on that, and the note will open. Open the note's notebook, and then long-press on it so that a checkbox appears to the left of the note header.Then open the three dot menu at the top of the screen, and select "Add to shortcuts". That should now be in your shortcuts list.

    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. As a subscriber, you may be able to get some useful comment from Evernote direct via Support. We're a (mainly) user-supported forum, so no inside knowledge here; and Evernote don't (usually) discuss future plans or release date, but they may be able to comment on how well (or otherwise) the app works with ARM processors. Even if that's not good, you will have the option of using the web-based application via sign-in at Evernote.com, but the web versions are -currently- all (IMHO) substantially less useable than the downloaded app. If anyone else here is using Evernote on a Surface they'll maybe be able to comment in more detail...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It would be great to have Reminders triggered by Location so if/when you're visiting a client or any location your reminders kick in. Similar to Google Keep, Samsung notes etc

    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?

    All my data is stored in Evernote, including action items. I'm interested in methods for getting things done. I'm not enthused with implementing such overhead. Also not Stack/Notebooks - this seems more suited to Tags. My notebook use is for other purposes (shared/offline/local/default) For my task management, the key points are Any note may be actionable; I identify this with tag:!Actionable I also have tags !Urgent and !Important for priortization (Eisenhower Matrix) A project tag (!Project-aaaaaa) for project related notes I store the start date using the Reminder feature. It also stores the completion date/status. I use searches to generate different task views (project, due date, completed, ...) My current task list is generated by search reminderOrder:* -reminderTime:day+1 -reminderDoneTime:*

    I looked at it and even went so far as to pay for a year's subscription. Then I got to work at transferring some data. Uggh. Their formatting is horrible (Evernote's editor is not that great but shines compared to what Nimbus does. One example - do an indent on Nimbus and it adds a non-removable blank line before the indent.) It's basically ugly. If you read their documentation you may notice it has that translated feel to it. As if the original Chinese writing was translated by somebody not fluent in both languages. I've got the account but won't be using it. I just don't trust them to be around for long and I'm nervous about who they really are and where they're from. Can anybody name a country that's famous for producing shoddy knock-offs of every successful product? At the very least, it feels like an Alpha product that may or may not get to the Beta stage. It's close to Beta but still far from a GA release by Evernote standards. I looked at them all and EN wins every time. It's far from great in a lot of ways but for my purposes there's no alternative.

    All kidding aside, nesting works well with organizing tags, but doesn't add much in the way of additional benefits for finding notes, unless you want to see all notes of a parent and its children. The ability to "put notes in multiple places" is sweet, for the taggers amongst us.
  42. 1 point
    Wow, I haven't noticed yet that tags can be nested. So there actually is a hierarchical method for sorting notes and notebooks. Thanks for this hint! For me this means a little rethinking and changing habits, but maybe it's even smarter to nest keywords than folders. A note can have many keywords, but only exist in one folder, which means that I can use keywords to map as many - even very contrasting - aspects of a note as I want, while the same wouldn't be possible with folders.

    With 3 days left I have 97% of my limit left. I keep a ton of stuff in EN, but I probably upload half a dozen, fairly small files daily. For me it was partly the offline files, but mostly just wanting to pay for a product that I was using and believed at the time I was contributing to development that would enhance the product I was using rather than funding the Business product. Per dropping Plus, I still see it on the web version under manage subscriptions, but a Google search found this: https://evernote.com/get-started

    I have been looking at Nimbus for a few months as either a backup to, or a replacement of, EN. I still haven't made the jump, but every time I read about the great new features of Evernote for Business, get a pop-up on the Web app about an EN for Biz feature, or have to remember how to share a note in Android via Email rather than work chat , I get a little closer. To clarify and add to some of gesshoom's post. You can import EN Enex file, but it does a much better job importing the native EXB file. Attachments, tags, etc. all work perfectly. Of course, if you use nested folders, you will have to renest those as EN folders aren't physically connected. As he said, syncing is virtually instant. The Android Widget is much more robust There are offline folders on Android. The default is to download headers and grab Notes as needed, but you can sync everything local and have it all offline if you want. Unlike EN, the app doesn't have the ability to move to External Storage I think the web clipper is as good or better than EN, and the company also has a separate Windows clipper that works very well when outside the browser. The main feature it is lacking that I use frequently is a default import folder, but depending on what I am doing, there are easy workarounds. The tags vs folders argument becomes moot as Nimbus supports both equally well. In response to the "mostly unresponsive support team," I just sent them a feature request. The reply came back within 2 minutes. This is not unusual per my experience. Of the dozen or so emails I have sent them, half came back within minutes, and all but one of the rest were within an hour. The outlier took 6 hours. As far a the pricing is concerned, I have been Premium at EN for years and never touch more than a fraction of the data usage. So, I bought a $5 on month plan at NN to handle the initial import, then I will likely go to the free plan. At this point, the data import per month is the only significant restriction on the free plan. From what I can determine, Nimbus Notes was launched in 2014, but the parent company, Everhelper began about a year before Evernote. EN is still my primary, go-to database, but when my sub comes up in May, I will almost certainly downgrade to Plus if not Free. In the months of testing, NN hasn't been non-responsive at any time, and I find myself going there more and more when I'm waiting for the Not Responding to go away on EN.

    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

    Dear Devs in Evernote. Evernote is the best note taking app out there hands down. But for anybody working in development one big issue is missing markdown support. Nowadays Markdown is: a standard, a convenient, fast and reliable method to write tech docs That's why any developer I know, including myself, is using some additional Markdown editor trying desperately to fit it somehow into Evernote workflow. There is plethora of such tools: Atom iA Writer Bear Writer Byword Day One Markdown Pro Marxico Quiver Ulysses etc. Which means that there are libraries if not the whole ready to plug-in text editors supporting markdown. All the above applications are great for note taking in markdown, writing tech documents, essays or even books. However they don't integrate with Evernote at all (with exception of Atom and Marxico) and they all lack (to a different degree): powerful image support not to mention stellar Evernote OCR advanced Evernote search easiness of sharing notes in Evernote Evernote notebook feature Please put some pressure on the product managers to prioritize this feature. Integrate Markdown editor into Evernote to make great product even better.
