  1. Hi all, I’m happy to announce that today we’ve released a brand-new Evernote feature: Home. It's rolling out to Mac, Windows, and Evernote Web customers over the next few weeks, with iOS and Android to follow. Home makes Evernote even more powerful by putting your most important information at your fingertips. It’s a one-stop dashboard that keeps the content you need front and center—neatly organized and instantly available—so you can stay on top of your day without feeling overwhelmed. Evernote Basic and Evernote Plus customers will see the following widgets in their Hom

  2. Hello! Today we are releasing Evernote for Windows 10.6 (v 10.6.9 build 2254). It comes with the all new Home, which we’ve detailed in our announcement post here. We’ve also released a number of improvements and bug fixes. Please see the highlights below. It is available now via the Windows App Store and as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running the direct download version, you will see an automatic update sometime soon as we progressively roll out the update and do not need to take any action.

  3. Hi All, With the release of Evernote 10.6 for Mac and Windows and Evernote 10.4 for iOS and Android, we’ve reintroduced the ability to email a copy of a note for customers with a paid subscription. We have limited this feature to paid subscriptions in order to help limit the spread of spam. The valid payment method for customers on paid plans verifies the sharer’s identity. For customers who prefer to share notes in this way, it’s a layer of security we offer in addition to 2-step verification (which we strongly encourage all users to enable). Basic customers can still share their

  4. Just out of curiosity: Isn't this out of focus at this place? Can't we be just happy that there is at least one new feature which delivers at least a little bit of additional value to v10 and follow these questions at other threads? Let's better just do it step by step and topic by topic...

  6. I wish Evernote would follow a very simple common sense rule. No new features until old ones are working as people expect. And bugs and performance issues are no longer an issue. Also when new version of Evernote is released, there need to be trust in the stability, not playing Russian roulette with updates. Will I lose my data? Will it crush two or three times per hour etc. I'm been using Evernote for years and for years it has gotten from bad to worse, with not much ability to learn from previous mistakes being shown by Evernote. Right now still version 10 is not ready for general release it

  7. TRIGGER WARNING FOR GURUS: This post does not represent blind support for Evernote. Like most normal users on these forums, I don't care for your self righteous, arrogant views but if you feel you need to respond to get your post count up then fill your boots. --- I really cannot believe that Evernote are proud to advise that they are working on new features (mostly which weren't asked for) when so many long time paying customers are just waiting for previous critical features to be reinstated and for some level of acceptable performance and customer support to be reinstated (you kno

  8. New: Email a copy of a note (paid) Fixed: You would sometimes see an error when trying to open a note link, but not anymore. We fixed an issue where the app would crash if you entered special characters (like *, <, and >) in the search bar while you were offline. Fixed an issue where stacks containing certain characters wouldn’t display in the left sidebar We fixed a problem where PDFs you had captured with ScanSnap would sometimes disappear. We squashed a swarm of tiny bugs that, individually, didn’t amount to much but, collectively, were pretty a

  9. My note here is totally irrelevant, but I got an intriguing update email from another company yesterday which is a bit of a model in emotional intelligence... It's from the developers of JV16, a Windows 'cleanup' utility. Note the subtle sales message and the discounts at the end... Evernote, please note!

  11. Exactly. Almost everyone gets that unifying the codebase was a pill that had to be swallowed. And Evernote power users are a very patient bunch. Waiting until they had v10 closer to feature parity with v6 and had most of the bugs ironed out, even if it took another 6 months would have been fine. Instead, by foisting this beta onto an unsuspecting public in the form of a general release and breaking many workflows, they have destroyed perhaps the most important aspect in the relationship between note app user and note app developer - trust. And for what? Any attempt to protect their compet

  12. Thanks for the reply and the offer of help! I didn't submit a ticket. To say I was put off is an understatement. Luckily, I also did not update to v10, but the threat of the legacy app being available for an unknown period of time is motivation enough for me to look for a more secure and efficient solution. And frankly, the thought of Evernote AI pilfering through my notes looking for something to put on my Home page is abhorrent to me. It's not something I need and not at all what I signed up for.

  15. Bingo! I think the same way. I don't believe they understood all the ways folks were leveraging the product to get that $70 worth of value. I've seen some inklings of that realization in the bits of communication so far. Spun for sure, but there. Again, here's hoping they right the ship.

  16. It's been more than three months from releasing version 10. Three unbearably frustrating months for thousands of users all around the world. Let me tell you something @gbarry, @Shane D. - you are all disgusting. You are correcting irrelevant minor issues, when we are still waiting for fundamental fix. Taking control over system wide shortcuts was one of the dumbest thing you've ever done. But you did it. Shame on you. Now clean the mess. How arrogant are you?...

  20. Having watched Ian Small's new videos on YouTube, I feel as if a company which had been supplying me with potatoes since 2009 had suddenly and without warning delivered me a bag of kumquats and informed me that they would be delivering me kumquats from now on. They said that 95% of their customers preferred kumquats, and that only 2% were using potatoes, so it was much more efficient for them to bring me kumquats, too. Potatoes aren't flashy, but they're a staple at my house and I have a lot of recipes for them. I'm sure kumquats are lovely, but I've never eaten one. With my premium subs

  21. Personally I don’t want to generalize. Somebody decided on strategy (probably 2-3 years ago), somebody had to oversee implementation and somebody decided they are ready to go, and authorized launch. At least the third decision was a very premature one. The first app to launch was EN iOS, and it was definitely not ready for any job with the first release. Unfortunately it hit devices that were mainly set to auto-update, which multiplied the effect. When I look at it from the outside, it seems that oversight of the software development project was not up to industry standards. If there

  22. As someone who has worked as a developer through to C-level in global software dev and tech companies, my experience is that, the majority of the time, the issues that we are seeing at Evernote rarely have a root cause in the dev team ... they are usually self inflicted technical issues through poor management (software dev process - I still don't think Evernote has one, people mgmt, leadership etc) and decision making at the top. There is a reason that Chris O' Neill got the boot along with most of his execs a few years back and it wasn't because the dev team were lousy (I doubt they are). U

  23. <Sigh> Pointing out the facts of life is not 'defending', it's just being practical. And I'm no defender of the current ongoing slow-motion car-crash of a release - I've been actively suggesting that folks go back to Legacy when they hit issues. I'm still using the last public releases for Android and Windows with updating firmly turned OFF for the time being. Watching all this breast-beating about the new release being toxic is like watching a kid lie in 2 inches of water and panic about drowning. Just get up guys - you'll be fine...a little damp maybe, but generally fine

  24. No one can tell, honest 😄 Putting my cynical hat on, EN is not trying to please premium users. They already have our money. Some have left. I doubt it has been a flood ... yet. Their hope is to attract enough new paying members to compensate for those that left and grow the business. This would have been a true disaster if they didn’t keep legacy around. A key decision for them will be when they decide to remove legacy and at what state v10 will be at that time. Many premium members are waiting and watching. I think a key miss by Evernote was maybe not realizing that anyone wi

  25. I'm glad to see we're having a mature, reasonable discussion about this... Just to restate the obvious - Evernote had (as far as we know) no way to provide nested notebooks up to the present. They've never said they won't do it - just that they can't with the coding structure that was only replaced a few weeks ago. Given that the previous public version had a whole range of features that were dropped for the relaunch and are now (mostly) being added back with each revision on a 2-week timescale, it may be some time before they're in a position to start adding new major tricks.

  26. But isn‘t this what we were talking about here the last hours as potential EN strategy? Just how to deliver enough values and „unique selling points“ for new users and non power users to change from basic to premium? This surely is no big thing or game changer for power users and no reason to upgrade to v10, but it is still a step forward in development.

  28. Thanks - it looks like finally things start to get moving. Sure I prefer to discuss how to employ new features instead of missing ones. Anyhow I hope that rolling out known features we are waiting for will happen side by side with new functions like this home dashboard. But again: Nicely done, cool look & feel, pulling together what will do to make my day.

  29. @tavor Not sure what EN's focus is at the moment other than remediating a dumbed down product in a standardized programming language. Hard to fathom that this, as you put it, slow motion train wreck could be anywhere in the neighborhood of what they expected to achieve. They've managed to miss the mark in quality and content, no mean feat. Add lack of communications and you have the trifecta! Still hoping they can fix this thing. Meanwhile 6.25.1 is running sweet

  30. I don't think Electron is the problem. EN's rollout of v10 was a disaster, but there are well received Electron apps, such as Visual Studio Code. I'm using Joplin (also Electron as you note) and like it. For cross platform note apps, unless you are content to stay in Apple's walled garden, you will be hard pressed to avoid Electron. EN moved to Electron because they could see the writing on the wall. Maintaining disparate codebases for each platform while your competitors are using a unified codebase is a losing strategy. I think the root of the problem is EN's approach to QA of their sof

  31. I admit to being puzzled by all the negativity around version 10, but maybe I'm not a power user. I fail to see what the "disaster" is. The tagging feature hasn't changed, and haven't found anything equivalent in another app for Windows 10 - OneNote doesn't even come close. I use Evernote primarily for saving tax-related receipts, and it continues to work well for that. I can scan directly into EN. Again, the tags, and the ability to nest tags is a great feature. The web clipper works beautifully. When I last tried this in OneNote, it was very inferior to EN. The note-taking

  34. I'm curious, do you both find 10.6.9 to be worse than earlier versions? If so, I hope you will consider reaching out to support (if you're subscribers) to note the problem so that they can fix it. For my part, progress is a little uneven but each new version seems to be a little better than the last.

  35. Just wanted to update that while it was a painful period for us, Evernote's engineering team did fix the sync/webhook issue created with the new apps. My company and clients are grateful it's over notwithstanding it would have better if it never occurred. I continue to believe in 18 months, biting the bullet will be judged the best decision for Evernote. I wished they had done a much much better job of communicating and not feeling they need to be so secretive about roadmap. If they told us more about roadmap I don't think it would impact their competitive situation one bit.

  36. With Google I am not that sure about GSuite privacy. I run a Pi-Hole on my network, so I see what queries are going out in the background when I call an URL. Recently somebody send me a GDrive link to download some content. I pasted it to my browser (not Chrome ...) and opened it. Then I took a look at the Pi-holes log (which I do sometimes just to learn about tracking habits). Oooops - there were with that very time stamp several communication attempts with Google analytics servers (all stopped, of course). The GDrive link opened fine and let me download the content, so this was not

  38. to me, this is the most logical conclusion of their actions to date. If I consider the possibility of e.g. a Google acquisition, their actions makes sense. from these forums alone, they've clearly alienated long term highest-revenue users. their silence makes it clear they don't care, indicating these users are not important to their go forward strategy their data is in google cloud. they attempted to evolve their TOS in 2016 in a way that would allow them to mine our data without having opted in. shedding premium users would actually reduce that objection and make such a change

  39. About the only time I can remember these forums moving EN has been with V10. Hard to tell spin from reality but features that appeared to be out forever (import folders) are making their way back. Again, hard to tell if original intent was later or gone, but my sense was gone. Other than that EN has pretty much ignored the bulk of feature requests, fix your effing QA process and the like. For all that it is still the best product on the market for my use case. Which is disconcerting if they don't get this V10 thing back to being a close cousin to 6.25.1.

  41. Wow, count yourself lucky. I’m glad the new version 10 is working for you without any issues. However, there are many people, like myself, who are experiencing major issues, such as lost or corrupted data, or erroneously duplicated data, or broken workflow processes due to significantly reduced functionality (which have been well documented in these forums). I do like the new version overall and have hope that things will continue to get better. However I’m struggling right now with the integrity of my data, and therein lies my issue with EN version 10.

  42. Tags are great, but they have a tendency to grow out of bounds. Near duplicates, homonyms & synonyms, typos etc. And then this great new area of interest, that collects dust after the tag was applied to only a few notes. Others are asking to be nested. My experience is I need to clean out a little bit every few months to keep tags focussed. For this a tag management is necessary, not only the ability to write words behind an identifier. With the EN tag manager it does not take long to do the housekeeping job. This makes tags more valuable in information retrieval.

  43. Don’t search a replacement. Define your use cases - just lean back and write down for what purposes you did use EN in the past. Think if you need anything in addition. Convert it into a table, and give it a rank from most important to low usage. Then start the search. It is never good just to want out of something. Then you are out, and still don’t know where to go. Direction and action comes from knowing where to go.

I have a Daily Work List that is my main tab and I click on other tabs for doing other work. As a Premium subscriber, I believe that EN should have taken a user survey before making the incredible decision to jerk tabs out.

  48. Hi. You don't mention whether this is Mac, Windows or mobile, but have you tried stepping back to the last public version? v10 is pretty much a skeleton so doesn't display much, but if your data still exists within Evernote (or you have a usable backup) you may find the Legacy versions are the best place to stay for a while...
