  1. Congrats to the winners and looking for even better features for dashboarders in 2020 by Evernote
  2. You are welcome @JohnOem. The best things in life are simple Glad there is someone out there using a similar technique
  3. oh sorry for not making the screenshots clear. The content is not changing, its just a very long table that doesn't fit in one screen and need to be scrolled down. Notice the scrollbar on the extreme right in each screenshot.
  4. Love this idea, will be especially handy on touch screens I reckon. I love Canva too 🙂 but for instagram mostly 😅
  5. "That's valid, but it limits the scope (I removed Notes from this discussion's title) Your method forces a dynamic notelist" less is more I purposefully target just a single metric through the notebooks interface. " Also, you might use a Shortcut for easier access In which case you're not restricted to a Notebook; it could be a tag or saved search" Already do "You might want to specify a year in the note title instead of just Week nn I have daily notes with title 2019/12/07 Journal [2019.341 Saturday]" Thought of that some years back but happy with keeping a notebook with 52 notes only. Comes Jan 1, the entire notebook gets renamed to 2019 and a fresh new 'Weekl'y notebook starts. You can see I am a minimalist and don't like 'non-data' ink as Stephen Few puts it here. Also, by not mentioning the year, I can search more easily for say 'week 51' across all past years and compare instead of searching for substrings like '/12/07' or similar for example
  6. I imagine dynamic content to be added via Evernote APIs (programming / developing it yourself). More on Evernote's developer pages
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
