  1. Thanks for the response Gazumped - I was pretty sure if anyone was going to comment it would be your good self Fair comment as to other folks priorities, and also the uncertainty about Evernote's own efforts and focus at present. But at least I now know that I am not incorrectly using Work Chat. But more a case of it is what it is for now. Just hope that Evernote do get around to putting some resource into enhancing Work Chat in the near future, as it is just a few functions short of revolutionising the way I can use Evernote. More importantly it will make it even more compelling (and easier to evangelise) to many business contacts... ATB, Andy
  2. Bump... Not sure whether the lack of response to this thread has been due to : Hardly any Evernote users actually using Work Chat in earnest ? People are using it, but nobody else has the same use case as me - The need to have separate chat threads to the same person e.g. by project, or work vs personal (see my original post) Evernote are no longer putting resource into further development of Work Chat ? The explanation of my problem was not clear ? I posted this new thread too close to the Thanksgiving holiday ?Fingers crossed that I will get some feedback this time... Thanks, Andy
  3. Having spent literally hours trawling through Work Chat related posts here, am finally resorting to posting this thread... I have recently started using Work Chat, as part of my ramping up my use of Evernote. I love the ease with which a note can be shared with others using Work Chat.HOWEVER it seems very crude in its implementation, especially in the way that all chats to a specific Evernote user appear to just get dumped into the same Work Chat 'bucket'Maybe I am doing something fundamentally wrong? But what I want to do when clicking 'New Chat' is exactly that - create a new chat thread. Not just append my new chat to the end of an existing chat thread with that person. Especially as I can already do that through the Work Chat folder anyway.For example, I have a graphic designer that I work with. She comes up with various images and icons for me for different projects.So I would like to be able to share a design spec note with her via Work Chat for each distinct project, and then record our interactions as we go through the development process for each project.What I DON'T really want to do, is have just one Work Chat 'bucket' with her, where all our interactions on all projects get dumped. That would be very confusing and messy, as we can have 10 or more projects on the go at any one time...On a possible related note, I did come across an earlier thread from MCheng (Evernote Employee) who was hinting that he was exploring a means to possibly name Work Chat threads. If a 'New Chat' could be individually named against a particular user or users, that would be greatIf the link for any shared document within that named work chat could also be copied into the other persons Evernote, that would put the cherry on top for me.So does anyone know whether the named Work Chat feature is still being worked on? Anyway I hope that the above makes sense, and thanks in advance for any help or feedback... Andy
  4. Have just updated to v5.8.3, and (so far) problem looks to have been fixed However I note that there is still no Context tab in Options for free version, so as if this was simply fixed with a code rollback... Anyway fingers crossed that we will no longer be pestered by this sort of popup. Thanks Evernote
  5. My first post here - due to this popup doing my head in ! Normally I use Evernote Mac versions at home, but have to resort to Windows version elsewhere. Like others I simply cannot understand why this has been implemented this way in Windows - particularly as there is so little space to enter text when using my windows laptop anyway. So have to agree that this looks like a deliberate (and pretty crude) ploy by Evernote to put pressure on folks to go Premium - especially with no Context tab visible in Setup in the Free version. And no, I don't want to have to resort to playing around with Windows Registry thank you. Ironically after years of being an intermittent free user, I have been starting to use EN a lot more since the New Year, and had been considering finally switching to Premium. But this sort of problem, will definitely delay my decision... particularly as Context functionality is of little interest to me. Anyway I am glad to hear that this is to be fixed (e.g. function block removed) in a future official release. But would be helpful if Evernote staff when answering here could indicate specifically what beta version this has been fixed in, as I am reading this thread a month after mention of the betas release. So am not sure whether it should be in the current official release or not. Evidently I am currently using Evernote v5.8.1.6061 and the popups appear more frequent than ever... Finally should also add (on behalf of my Windows friends) that the Windows version appears to be running way behind the Mac and Web versions - particularly in terms of UX, as well as some functionality. Come on Evernote - you can do better than this...!
