  1. I too took a peek at Nimbus when it was first mentioned here. Your recent comment, @bpang33 prompted me to look again. I checked out some YouTube vids on it, explored the website, https://nimbusweb.me, downloaded the application and installed the browser extension. Infinite nested folders from what I can see.. I'm sold. I'm relieved. I'm leaving this Evernote thread now. No need to turn blue holding my breath, waiting for Evernote to respond to this request. Thanks, @bpang33. : )
  2. TonyMontanaSlot, I am agreeing loudly. I follow this thread only because a while back (a year or more) an Evernote employee said something to the effect that the nested notebooks feature was being considered and was perhaps even coming. In spite of repeated attempt, I find I cannot use Evernote efficiently and effectively without it. (And I am specifically requesting DTLow not to respond to this message.)
  3. EXACTLY. EXACTLY. EXACTLY. I too monitor this thread only because (after 10+ years of this request going unanswered by EN) there was that post (6 months ago?) there was that post by an Evernote guy that implied that nested folders were in the works for at least the premium business version of EN. A glimmer of hope. Otherwise, you get only #1 and #2. Skip reading anything by DTLow as it is always and without fail #1. Thx.
  4. AlextheUnicat, you've articulated precisely what I'm saying. Nailed it. Thx!
  5. I have not found any of the replies from DTLow in this thread to be helpful. He seems to be strictly on a mission to talk hierarchical thinkers out of being the way they are. This thread is home for we who have been begging EV for nested, organiz-able folders for years. It is not helpful to be told (over again) why they aren't necessary, aren't a good idea and why the workarounds work just fine when we of the nesting tribe know they don't fill the void.
  6. The other vital feature for hierarchical thinkers, along with the need for many (many) levels of nested folders is the ability to reorder the sequence of folders and notes, preferably with drag and drop. Right now Evernote forces sorting alphabetically or by date created or by date modified, etc. Without that, the user has to craft and constantly modify some naming scheme like 1a-First Note, 1b-Second Note, 1c-Last Note, 2a-Do Later Note, 2b-A Reference Note to order things in the way he/she is thinking of the sequence.

  8. Well, that is the issue in a nutshell. Evernote has a search tool and no organizing tool. I can't use Evernote until I can organize it with nested notebooks and folders several levels deep. Thank you.
  9. Since multi-level nested folders and nested notebooks has been requested by hundreds of users over several years, I don't think there's much more I can add. If you are a person who thinks in hierarchies, then you, like me, literally experience a vertigo when looking at all your notes and notebooks in the Evernote product. Evernote is basically your very own mini-World Wide Web. You ask for (search, filter) for what you want and call it up. But you have to already know what you want. It is useless for organizing or project management as it is. There is no structure to organize it. It is only for storage and retrieval. Imagine you were intent on logically, methodically carrying out projects using *all* the information on the entire web. You would go bonkers without organizing the whole web into tiered folders like a folder tree on a Windows PC folder directory. That is the point of organizing Evernote with such a structure.
  10. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE. This is the sole reason I have not adopted Evernote, even though I have attempted to use it multiple times over recent years. I have wasted hours trying to use it the way Evernote wants me to, trying to design tags, trying to label folders in such a way as to tier them. I have spent hours researching other people's hacks to make Evernote do something like this; and trying to find plug-ins or shells that might do it. I have tried (and failed) to use Evernote in conjunction with MS OneNote and with several task managers like Asana, ToDoist, etc. I have tried tools that port from Evernote to another app including TaskClone and IFTTT. Nothing has worked for me. Evernote needs infinitely nested notebooks and infinitely nested folders. No two ways about it.

  12. I am a new GTDNext user and a new Evernote user and a new IQTell user. In fact, I am on a quest to find the perfect task management tool(s) for me. GTDN is going to win because it is the only one I have found with the infinite-level outlining/nesting and the drag/drop sorting and re-ordering in all views. However I definitely do need Evernote integration. Evernote alone does not work for task management. I also really, really need Evernote to allow nested folders down multiple levels, so I was delighted to find the link Treeliner in the discussion notes here. I checked it out. Awesome. TaskClone, I've found, can send Evernote notes (with the appropriate tag) to the designated task app where the checkboxes within become Actions. And there is a link back to the Evernote note. Still, the best model for Evernote integration is IQTell. As I have said elsewhere, IQTell has amazing features, integration with Evernote, integration with Outlook, reminders and alarms, and aggregated email accounts but I can't use it sensibly because it does not have the awesome outlining/nesting/sorting/drag-drop capabilities of GTDnext. If GTDN would just do everything IQTell does with Evernote, I'd be purring like a happy cat. Shellah
