  1. As there are a lot of people here who are frustrated with the way Evernote is taking feedback and just keeps on saying "We will look into that and never actually doing anything" I thought we can discuss the various Pros and Cons of the alternatives of Evernote. Hoping for no long rants but pros and cons of various alternatives.

    • Google Drive Integration: Instead of pasting messy links to files, Evernote now includes thumbnail previews of Drive Content. You can also search your Drive from Evernote. Changes to files in Drive will sync automatically with your notes. There's even a handy icon in the Evernote toolbar to jump right into your Drive.

     

     

    And you ignored the part about making it clear that this is title only search. It is a big difference.

    The current description does not offer much assistance. I don't see any mention that it only searches GD titles. And I do not see any Evernote "rich viewing experience" with my GD PDF's.

     
     

    Evernote team needs to make the part about only searching the titles clear in the release notes. Currently, it is very fuzzy and most people won't think this is title-only. When I saw google drive integration I thought this is great. But then I was told this is title only search.

    I'm curious about one thing. Do you prefer Evernote for Web more than Evernote for Mac or Windows native apps? Do you use the Web app most of the time? Is there a specific thing that you like about using Evernote for Web more than our native clients?

    Evernote for Windows is better but as I have to spend most of time on linux I don't have a choice to use the web version

    That's unfortunate for new Evernote users! I just created a demo account and tried to browse to https://www.evernote.com/Settings.action?disableBeta= to see if I could disable the beta version and it didn't work. I wonder if an Evernote Basic user could request Evernote Support to "revert" their account back to the old Web client. Thanks for clarifying, @Metrodon

    I had tried that on an account. Seriously they should allow that as long as they don't make the new interface properly functional. @scruggles something to consider.

    I fully agree. I should be able to lock Evernote with a pass code if I want to. That should be an option in these security-conscious times we live in with every instance of Evernote I have. But it's not.

    Evernote on my Android phone and tablet have a pass code. Evernote on my Mac laptop does not offer a pass code. Why? Yes, Evernote is for millions of users. Good. I'm happy it's successful and will be around in the future. I depend on Evernote for archiving important documents. Just make using a pass code optional for those of us who want to use it. For those who don't, they don't have to activate the pass code function. How hard is that?

    I hope you upvoted the thread. It would help if people actually upvote this.

    Hi.  This thread started out about Evernote Web,  and @scruggles meant (I think) that password requests are usually for the installed desktop product as @Waco Ed has confirmed.  Plus @Aseem Bansal started this thread by looking for some way to mark individual Notebooks (Notes?) "private" which doesn't necessarily say 'password' to me.  Evernote might be looking at other ways to satisfy the various requests they've had.

    However I apologise for being probably too negative in my first response.  It's not a question of "just" making something available - there are thousands of requests in the pipeline for mindmapping / tag management / colors / etc etc.  I agreed that this is a good request - but Evernote have to prioritize and fit development work into what must by now be a crowded schedule of OS and device bug fixing and maintenance.  They'll put the most popular and potentially customer satisfying features early in the queue.  I don't know where this request will come,  but the more clicks it has in the top right left corner,  the more impact you'll have.  I added mine... but I'm not holding my breath.

    I was thinking password but if they can make it private in some other way I am fine with that. I am not sure how that could work in an alternate way but I think I have added enough details for their product team to make an informed decision. I was thinking protection at the notebook level.

    You should be able to switch to the Classic Evernote for Web in Settings by going to:
    Settings>Account Summary>Evernote Web>Go back to old version

    I switched my one account to the old one but the other newer one does not have the option to do that. How do I use the old version for the new account also?

    You know this is the best comment that I have seen. I was not using Evernote web so much back then and did not even know that the old version was so nice. The new one looks modern but compared to the functionality here the new one is nothing.

    It's true, only four. But those four are presented so beautifully! Isn't that what is important? The style! The elegance! You could make wallpaper from that tasteful list of notes! To hell with rapid access to information! That's so old-fashioned! :D:D:D:D:D

    :D Just want this post to remain on top of the forum so that people see it.

    Hi Aseem! Thanks for the idea. It's one we've heard before, but it's generally been directed at the desktop teams. As a workaround, I know there are extensions that shut down certain tabs if you haven't looked at it in a while - possibly it could be configured to password protect certain sites? Haven't looked into it, tbh

    Also what do you "generally been directed at the desktop teams"? Didn't get that.

    ...and actually you wouldn't have to go 'public' with a notebook to share it with your work account. If you opened another basic account and used that for private items,  share a notebook with your desktop account which you can open via a browser window if and when necessary.  Shut down the window and the notes are 'hidden' again..

    The problem with multi account approach is that it is messy because Evernote has weird limitations of not allowing me to add new tags to a shared notebook. And spreading things  around goes against the idea of evernote in the first place.

    Work around can be done. Multiple accounts is a work around that I am using. But that is not really convenient. Say I am sitting with a colleague and I we are working on something. Both of us looking at the screen. I need to look up something and I search. Now the search also turns up some notes that are in the private category. And the situation may turn odd.

    Usually when I am at home and using my laptop I login into the premium account on the web. Now the first thing in the morning I have to remember that I need to logout premium account and login the basic/public account. If I forget and I open up the tab Evernote web turns up all notes by default in the order created. It usually contains private category and public category. 

    Say I want someone's help and let someone sit on my workstation with me standing behind. They want to access the article that I was just reading. But hey I cannot let them do that as search can turn up things that I don't them to be able to see. 

    I can go on with the use case basing on Evernote's motto "The more you keep in Evernote the better it gets". But lack of some features make it inconvenient.
