  1. Are you guys no longer in the business of apologising for major failures, errors and inconveniences to customers, free and paying? This is kind of a big deal - and while a notification of something going wrong is fine (it's self-evident when you can't log in) I'm a bit concerned that you guys think just letting users know is sufficient. 

    Why did it happen? What are you doing to ensure it doesn't happen again?

    At approximately 3:30PM Pacific Time today, the Evernote service was updated with a change that prevented some customers from being able to log in to Evernote using Evernote Web and the new versions of Evernote for Mac and Windows (versions 10.0 and above). This was resolved at approximately 4:30PM Pacific Time. 

    Though the issue has been resolved, any customer who logged in during this time may still experience issues logging in to Evernote for approximately the next 12 hours. To log in to Evernote immediately, you can delete the local Evernote database on your computer and allow Evernote to redownload it. Please exercise caution when following the steps below, and thank you for your patience.

    Evernote Web

    • Clear the cache and cookies for the last 24 hours on the browser where you were using Evernote.
    • Restart your computer.
    • Re-open the web browser and log in to your account at https://www.evernote.com/Login.action.

    Evernote for Mac (v. 10.0+)

    • Quit the Evernote app.
    • Open Finder.
    • In the menu bar, select Go > Go to Folder....
    • Paste ~/Library/Application Support/ into the text field and click Go.
    • Delete the "Evernote" folder.
    • Restart your computer.
    • Open Evernote and log back in.

    Evernote for Windows (v. 10.0+)

    • Quit the Evernote app.
    • Open Windows Explorer.
    • Type %appdata% into the text field and click Enter.
    • Delete the "Evernote" folder.
    • Restart your computer.
    • Open Evernote and log back in.

  2. One feature that would make a HUGE impact on the value of Evernote is richer tables - in the style of Airtable and, now, Nimbus Note.

    This richer functionality would make it possible to do so much more with tables, including things like running a much more powerful editorial calendar.

    Key features: 

    • Cell types such as
      • Single select
      • Date (enabling sorting)
      • Assigned person
      • Rating (enabling sorting)
      • Progress in % (enabling sorting)
      • Numbers (that enable sorting by value)
    • Sorting options for the above

    Blog Editorial Calendar - All notes - Nimbus Note 2020-10-30 at 10.40.54 am.png

  3. Bringing this one back to life - it's worth taking a look at Nimbus Note again - my interest though is more in the Evernote team seeing some of the things the Nimbus team have put together, which I would LOVE to see in Evernote as the new versions continue to advance: 

    • Link preview option (a 'rich' card showing what the site is)
    • Nested, collapsible lists (for the love of all that is holy)
    • Live collaboration (they've managed to pull it off - if EN is going to offer a business product, not being able to edit a note collaboratively and have to deal with duplicate notes/sync conflicts constantly is an ENormous (see what I did there ️) pain in the proverbial.
    • The web clipper has some great options like scrolling screengrab
    • Loom-style video recorder (nice to have)
    • AND the main event (for me)... database-style tables (Airtable-esque) including dates, single and multiselect, sorting etc. This would be HUGE for me in terms of running editorial calendars etc in one place. 

    I'm not the hugest fan of the 'blocks' thinking that seems to be a part of all text editors now (Coda, Notion, Gutenberg, Nimbus - others I'm sure) but I DO like the way it allows you to drag things around and make different layouts. My concern with that is always that it's likely to be heavy and make things slow but Nimbus doesn't seem to suffer from that problem.

    Hmmn. Evernote might have jumped the gun on their developers. I'd suggest you raise this with Support as a subscriber - ask how you do this and see what they say?  If anyone is going to have more information it would be them...

    @gazumped - FYI. It looks like an extremely exciting feature.

    As a devoted Premium subscriber whose workflow relies heavily on Evernote, there is literally no feature I want more than this. 

    As an equally devoted Premium subscriber, there is no single feature I NEED more than a toggle list feature. Coda has it, Notion has it, Dropbox Paper has it. It is an ESSENTIAL feature if you're working with lengthy text documents. Surely you guys can see how important it is. It'll also improve performance, which I assume is a high priority for you. 

    @Shane D. by the amount of scrolling it took for me to get to the bottom of this thread, it's pretty clear that this is a MAJOR deal for many Evernote users - and has been since 2011. Justin Bieber was only just born in 2011 (I imagine). Can you give an update on this? 

  6. The 'toggle list' option in Notion is an absolute game changer and a feature addition which, based on the new list improvements in the web beta, I imagine wouldn't be too difficult to implement in Evernote. 

    In terms of the use case(s) the most recent one is my Evernote blog template. In Evernote it consists of a lengthy table filled with bullets and checkboxes. In Notion, using toggle lists I'm currently building it to take up less than a page. I can then expand only the relevant sections while writing the post. 

    I really don't want to have to expand my toolbox when Evernote already covers most of the bases but this is one (relatively) quick addition that would make a huge difference. 

    Example below of how it looks in Notion

  7. Hi, 

    A comment on the setup of the notebooks in the top left in the web client vs the Mac version. 

    On Mac, clicking on the notebook name on the top left of a note opens the menu to select a notebook/move the note to another notebook while in the web version it has a navigation function, which is far less useful and is also a breakdown in consistency across platforms. It's a far more common use case to want to move a note from one notebook to another, especially when processing your notes, than it is to simply navigate back to a notebook.

    @James Systems Matter Thank you for sharing your feedback!

    The function you're describing is related to the Web Client, and not necessarily the editor experience.

    In this case, I'm going to move this thread to a more appropriate location but feel free reach out to me directly if you have any other questions!

    OK thanks, Shane. Just want to reiterate that this is a crucial function/use case in terms of the web version even being usable.

  9. There isn't a way to search through notebooks when moving a note to a new notebook. When you have 100+ notebooks it's terrible UI to have to scroll through them all to find the notebook you want to move your note to.

    The same problem applies to tags, of which I have upward of 500.

    I'm not sure how these have fallen through the cracks as they're crucial features of the mobile and desktop apps.

  10. I'm starting to find the Google Drive integration more and more handy over time as a way to minimise local storage on my Mac. Where before I would save PDFs and photos directly in Evernote, I'm now saving things that don't require OCR in Drive. One irritating restriction is the fact that you can only attach one file from Drive at a time so it's really cumbersome to attach multiple files. 

    Is there a specific reason why it isn't possible to select multiple files to attach from Drive? 

  11. Freezes EVERY time on iPhone 6 and takes min 5 seconds to get going every single time. The iPhone 6 is still one of the most advanced handsets on the market and if Evernote is performing this poorly on a 6, I shudder to think what it's like on older devices. Evernote, this is a MAJOR problem and needs to be resolved. I'm a heavy user but I'm having to resort to storing things in Apple Notes when I need quick functionality. What's the point of the app if I can't quickly record thoughts when I have them?
