  1. I'm actually talking about the browser extensions here. When you search Google or Clip a page using the Web Clipper you get related results which you can turn on or off. You can not hide a notebook from showing. Many people use my computer, I don't need (for instance this did happen) my bloodwork notes showing up in the related notes area on a Google search results page when I search Google for cholesterol. It is unhelpful to me as it isn't actually a related note at all and it can be potentially embarrassing if friends or family do a Google search while EN is logged in. Now, I am pretty confused by your second comment. You said to include your username in a Google search to search those notes? It does not make sense to me because a person can not use Google to search an Evernote account just by including a users username in the search. What are you trying to say here? I think I need you to explain your point in a different way.
  2. I still want the feature but I don't want ALL notebooks included in the pool that results are pulled from. If I am doing research for something on Google, It is not helpful to me to have a diary entry come up as a related result in EN. I've asked EN chat agents before and was told it is not possible to hide a notebook from results. Please correct me if I'm wrong! Oh and I agree, I have an organizational problem. Your method won't work for me though, I'll get confused and lost and it won't be efficient at all. I really need things broken up into chunks in order to be able to follow them.
  3. I'm just a single person but I'm a single person with multiple unrelated projects. I was wondering if upgrading to a business account would help some of my organizational issues. Can someone tell me how a Business account might benefit a single user? If I were to have a Business account with two users, let's say "earthabbey" and "earthabbeybiz", what benefits could this be to me? What are the additional information sorting options would I have? There are just little things that supremely annoy me with my current premium account and I've been waiting and waiting but EN does not seem to be changing them. Things such as... - Doing a google search and having a private note to self type note show up in the "related results" - as above but for after clipping articles (I can't believe there is no option to hide certain notebooks from these features for privacy reasons) - I'm find it hard to keep tags organized because a tag may be used in two completely unrelated businesses/projects so either I have to be okay with that or remember the tag I used for each. - I've got 2700 notes, and they are all notes or articles I clipped manually, not auto-generated. With only 2 levels of organization for the notebooks I'm becoming overwhelmed and finding it difficult to remember all the notebooks I have and where they are. I know having 2 users on a biz account will be quite a bit more money $20/mo vs $5/mo but it'll be worth it to stop spending so much time staring blankly confused at the screen, wasting time looking for what tag I am supposed to use, etc. What do you think?
  4. I'm sure a lot of this info is already in the forums but I am frustrated and I hope someone here can just answer these questions rather than spending more hours trying to figure this out on my own. I just switched from Android to iPhone 5S. The first thing I noticed is the limited sharing capability in iPhone. Q1: How do I save the full text of an article into Evernote from my phone without loosing formatting, etc? I need to be able to do it from the browser and from RSS. I already purchased a news reader app but I will buy a different one if needed. What about from Instapaper or Pocket? I was using Everclip before on Android but the app store on iPhone is so frustrating I can't find anything right now. Q2: I purchased Pocket Informant and I used up half the battery running the first sync when I added the Evernote account. I'm at work and it's only 2pm so after an hour I had to cancel because I was down to 35% battery and didn't want to run out of battery the rest of my work day. Will it work if I just let it run? And why is it taking so long, is it trying to download my 3000 articles? .. or just the headers? How do you use Evernote with Pocket Informant? Any neat workflows you want to share? Q3: I use an app called Write Note Pro on Android for sending quick notes to Evernote. It lets me have a few presets for where to send the note and how to tag it. It's a very fast procedure and each note of the same preset will be appended to the previous one if I write more than one in a day. Is there anything like this on iPhone? Q4: What kinds of things can I do now with 3rd party apps I couldn't do on Android? Are there any cool mind mapping ios apps, etc that use/sync/work with evernote? Q5: this is an iphone and not an Evernote question, sorry, but maybe while you're at it you know this one too: Is there any way to have my agenda for the day listed in the Today menu on the phone? Right now it is the full day hour by hour even with all those blank spaces (I usually only have one or two things listed a day so I have to scroll through all that blank to find the one thing -- on Android I have a widget that shows the agenda for that day on the lock screen...any equivalent on iPhone?) Thanks!!
  5. Looks to be working so far, thanks Quick question... if I have received an email, and I make a reply, there does not appear to be a way to collapse my reply in the email "conversation" (the last message in the conversation does not collapse). This means when I clip the email I'm getting both their email and my reply. Is there any way to only get their email? I thought before that you could clip only one email at a time. I didn't use the feature too often though so maybe I'm wrong...
  6. Oops, on my phone right now. I meant to also say thanks for trying to help though.
  7. No...I'm on a PC on Chrome. Are you using the new clipper (a bar down the side) or the old one (a box in the upper corner)? I'm on the new one. ..... Rgrenader, I know tags can be used the way you are describing but I've actually explained several times in this thread why this wont work for me: I can not memorize that many tags (I'd need a cpl dozen at least) nor remember which tag I chose out of all related words as many of the topics I research are medical or involve names I can't spell.
  8. Unfortunately she did *not* use Evernote to make the moodboard. The wording is a bit misleading. She used Evernote to collect items for the moodboard and then used Adobe Fireworks to make that digital collage you see. " If I were presenting the mood board in person, I’d have printed everything out and made a giant poster. But they’re in California and I’m in Texas, so I made a big collage using Adobe Fireworks. I added the words myself. I then made a .pdf of the whole thing."
  9. Sorry I didn't see your message when I replied first, don't know how that happened... Anyway, YES. I thought about that in this journey also. I like that when you are in a notebook you can use a dropdown to see tags that are in that notebook. That is an incredibly handy feature. However that list gets pretty damn big as it's every tag. If there was a way to filter that dropdown that would be handy and at least a fast workaround. Damnit I just want the option to have shelves like I do at home with my "real" notebooks and collections of notebooks (stacks). All these work arounds and complicated organization systems would not be necessary.
  10. Love that you added that. That's one of the reasons I didn't post this question in the past...also to try to explain the way my head works and list what I've already done, that was hard lol Okay, so here is the thing. I didn't want to write a giant giant post but my tags are pretty organized too lol I have a very efficient tagging system which I'll post about one day when my backlog is caught up. I have 700 clipped articles sitting waiting to be sorted. I haven't done it yet because I've been trying to figure this out first. Having index notes with lists/links to the articles is a good idea except I won't keep it up -- that is a lot of extra work, at least for me the way I use Evernote. We're not talking about a few new notes a week, or even a day. One day I might add 40. unrelated: Docear there, can you export highlighted text and notes as text? I use Mendeley for highlighting and making notes in pdfs and ebooks (I convert it all to pdf for consistency) and then upload the exported info into Evernote. Mendeley is an academic suite too but a bit different. The pdf highlighting/exporting is the only thing I use it for though. Hey thanks for all those ideas. Is there a way to create an index quickly? Like highlight all the notes and create index? I think I saw that in one of the blog posts once but I've never used it. Indexes would be okay for me at the end of it all but I know me and there is no way I will be able to keep it up. That kind of extra step of adding the article to another thing every time after I clip it will get boring fast and I'll give up the system. Question: In the webclipper (as far as I can tell) there actually is not a tag browser, am I not seeing it? What I see you type the tag and it autofills. Which is great if you know what the tag you used might be. But oh my goodness, some of my research is medical and I don't always know which of the many options of names/words I have used to label stuff. I have my tags very sorted so if I am unsure once in a while I can look at the tag browser (LOVE the new tag browser) but when actually clipping, in the browser or from my android phone or tablet, I don't have that list of tags out and open. I've been trying to figure out if there is a way to rearrange my note stacks and note books...I'm still thinking about it. Honestly the PERFECT solution is if Evernote would add a separate subscription option: Business for Freelancers. I pay $5/mo for premium right now, I'd happily pay $10 for a way to somehow separate my projects better and/or separate my personal notebooks from business ones. When oh when!?!?! btw I asked in chat about a business account and was told a business account would not be helpful.
  11. Hey thanks for your quick reply...the problem for me is that I want to be able to see everything related to something specific quite easily. I could use a specific tag but as I said I can't remember that many specific tags. Right now, using specific tags to act as psuedo sections of a notebook (or a subject divider is what it would be called in a real paper notebook) is the only way I can think to do this. When I collect something it is with something specific in mind. But maybe there are 30 specific things. I can't remember that many tags and if I just tag at will I will not get everything I need. For instance maybe I want to look up all the tools I'd like to research. Well unless every note is tagged "tool" I won't find everything because the articles I clipped won't all use a common word. I could remember to tag things tool, yes, but that is only one of many. Right now I feel like my only option is to come up with a list of specific tags and try to memorize it, or have another level to the tree. I can't think of any other way of doing this without filling up a notebook stack with many many notebooks (which would ruin my very efficient organizational system). I looked into a Business account, but I don't think that would add any further separation of my notes, would it? I read through the info on evernote's website but had a bit of a difficult time understanding how the personal and business notebooks are identified / separated. btw thanks for the mindmap link. I use a study matrix...which is basically a mind map but with information you are learning vs brainstorming. I still am on paper as I haven't found a great solution. I'm going to go check out Concept Draw Here's one for you: CardboardIt.com It's an online card map app. I won't go into what that is as you probably know but if you're unfamiliar with card maps I can answer your Qs.
  12. I should mention I have considered multiple accounts but it would just be way way way too complicated, especially because so much information overlaps and is helpful to me when working on various unrelated projects. I also have most of my ebooks in evernote so that I can search my notes and the books for research info without having to open a separate product. I'd prefer to not have to log in and out and separate my data like that.
  13. Hello fellow enthusiasts! I am a pretty heavy Evernote user. A while back I scanned every paper doc I had. Next I really got into the digital habit and except when I need to make handwritten notes (my tablet is not fast enough to use it for note-taking but I have the Samsung Note S on my wishlist!) I am paperless and use evernote for almost all my digital information keeping. I also am an artist and I collect vast amounts of information, pictures, clips, etc. In addition to that I'm a frick'n nerd and I've got things uber organized. I'm a premium user (not business) also. So the reason I am posting this is for some new ideas. I want to see what other people come up with for my organizational issue that I'm currently experiencing. I use Evernote for my personal life, personal projects, art projects, research, and for work. I have 2300 notes and they are all content that I use or plan to use at some point so I am very careful about tagging and notebook organization. My problem mainly is that I really need another level in the notebook tree. It would be SO perfect for me if there were Bookshelves, Notebook stacks, Notebooks, and Notes. Wow, that would make everything so much better. But there isn't and so I am trying to find my way around this. Can you help? Example: To-Do notebook stack - To-Research notebook In here, I have individual notes of things I want to research. I also have notes of lists of things I want to research. Ideally it would be: To-Do bookshelf - To-Research notebook stack - Tools notebook - individual notes Right now the tools notes are all mixed in with the artists and with the electronics and with the php code I want to go over, etc etc. I honestly just don't know what the most efficient / user friendly method of organization for this is. I have ideas. For instance tag with the subject, but I feel like tagging with the subject will get confusing. Partly because I could have dozens of subjects but also because when web clipping I'd have to already know the tag, there is no drop down menu. What if I can't remember the exact tag I've used? When I am clipping and tagging with topics I type and suggestions come up and if I miss one it's not a big deal but if I am using tags to specifically separate notes as an impromptu subject divider (in keeping with the notebook analogy) I need to use the correct exact one and I honestly can't remember stuff like that. Are there any features I'm unaware of that could help me? Has anyone found an elegant solution to only having this many levels? I feel like if I used Evernote only for art, or only for personal stuff or only for work it would be fine but because I need to definitively separate that content there are more limits in what I can do. In order to not waste a level I have made my stacks general and then I specialize inside. That is, I do not have 3 stacks (Art, Personal, Work), instead I have stacks like Projects and then inside there are 5 project notebooks, some personal, some art). I also have To-Do stack, Paperless Life stack, etc.
