  1. nice change on the "move note to another notebook" field to include all the accounts.. thats partly addressing the issue of ease of filing with separation of business and private. Ability to search through all accounts business and private to find a notebook by typing in the name when you are going to file a note is terrific and restores usability that was lost on the split. The note and word search has improved but is still a bit clunky (oh oh not in business, i'll now have to select private and vice versa) Could you at least provide a hint that the searched item is not in the current account but exists in the other account with the number of hits perhaps as an intermediate step? Also please add back the option "4 most recent notebooks" (under perhaps a separate tab) and you will really be adding back functionality to a heavy filer of notes Thanks Tim
  2. I control our company account. We have 16 users. It was my idea to push Evernote though the organisation. My staff tell me the product is not worth the trouble with the split of business and private. They say they its annoying to search for things now ... they have to search twice to find things and switching notes between private and business notebooks is now a multi step process. After upgrading everyone to 6.12 GA at the end of August, last week only one staff member other than me used Evernote. its now a pointless product if all my staff have stopped using it. Well done Evernote.. You actually had us locked in for life until this misstep. I just can't justify paying $170 a month if nobody is using the product.
  3. Hi, just noticed you removed the three most recent notebooks options from the notebook find / move a notebook drop down box .. any chance that could go back? That was very useful feature
  4. We use evernote in multiple business that are all owned or part owned by the same public company. We outsource services to them. I have just noticed that all the common notebooks we share between all the businesses have been shared at a personal invitation level. This means that all my business notebooks (i.e. compliance, HR, Legal, ad nauseam) we share are now classified as personal notes. We are going to spend our days switching back and forward between personal and business and trying to remember which notebook refers to a shared business function and which is in-house..(there are hundreds) Please tell me you have thought of this.. On the beta I can't just type in the name of a notebook and find it unless I am in the right account.. For Example: HR Policies, HR Draft Contracts, HR Review Dates are now in private........HR Reviews and HR Signed Contracts are in business...
  5. I have stopped using Evernote for iPad because of the separation of business and private. To have to look through two areas to find information (and find which account if filed a notebook under) is just not efficient. I have a small business of 16 staff members. We use evernote for all our information storage, so I understand the need for the business to retain control of the notes that are business notes.. But most of us scan all our paper in as we receive it.. In mine it goes into a personal clippings file and I file it from there..Most of the notebooks I use all the time are set up as shortcuts so I just drag and drop.. about half of the filing is business and half is personal. Being able to quickly file between personal and business notebooks is essential. So having half my shortcuts disappear is not fun. I simply can't use the beta until thats back again.. Luckily I only updated the beta to my laptop and my office and home computers are non beta otherwise evernote would have become unusable until you allowed note transferal. I have a PA who scans all my mail into a mail file that we share and she files it into shared (personal or business) folders. We use emailing into evernote using the @ notebook name protocol for lots of correspondence and filing reports that we generate or receive. However, there is quite a bit that just pops into the inbox as I need to file it rather than my staff member who sends it to me. The seamless integration between personal and business is essential. Here's a suggestion.. Why don't you let the business owner (evernote admin) decide which users need to separate their accounts. For example I could let all my owners in the business (who run their private lives and business lives together) run their notebooks unseparated and the staff for whom we allocate a business evernote account (they are getting a free evernote account as a small bonus) could have accounts that separate business and private? Big businesses that are pressuring you into separation have the option of making them all separate and smaller businesses like mine can have the flexibility of retaining the current intermingled method. I see you have fixed the switching error.. Thank you.. thats been a hassle for a long time. My wife has a business and I have a log on to it so i can help out the staff from time to time. The system would crash everytime I switched between accounts. So thanks for that.
