I agree, this is a big limitation. I just hired an executive assistant and I'm sharing some notebooks with her to almost fully manage. This causes a big problem in our workflow and management of the notes. Evernote, please reconsider this feature, it really seems like a must have...
I agree that this would be very helpful. I just converted my account to business edition and I'm going to be putting my sales team on Evernote. Having these "pinned" notes on the top of some of the Business Notebooks (and of course for personal ones) would be very useful. The work around seem ok but I use the web and iPad versions a lot and i usuall have sort set to Date Updated Thanks.
