  1. Children, Children...lets not fight over this..its a simple feature request! Thank you for all the insight, I will look into PhraseExpress etc for the time being! Have a happy New Year!
  2. Thanks for the feedback as I find it really interesting on how others structure tags as I am going through a setup of Evernote Business for my business and struggling with appropriate level of detail on tags and also how to keep my arms around it so random and meaningless or duplicate tags don't appear. Really though, I have no issue with my technique being brittle (at least when used by me as an individual, it would be more problematic in a team environment). I don't create notes 10, 5 or even 3 at a time. I create notes one at a time and I have to title all of them individually anyways, so it is easy to keep a "table of projects" list open in the background, copy and paste the title of the project in the title of the new note. For example: YYYY/MM/DD - Note Description - Project Title. The system works very well for me and hence I'm not really asking for advice on the use of tags to change it, I'm just looking for a feature from Evernote (which not being a professional programmer may or may not be feasible) in which you can embed a search query as a hyperlink in a note. This would be useful even for folks that organize there projects with tags. I could then save a hyperlink on my Note that has all my projects listed out and have a link in the table that performs the search query to show all the relevant notes. For now I just use saved searches and it works fine. When I am done with the project I can delete the saved search, but at the same time if I ever wanted to go back and review the project for something I can still recreate the search. Also, there is a problem with organizing tags in a tree with Evernote Business, it appears they don't allow you to tree them in Business version (if they do I haven't figured out how yet). Also the iOS versions don't let you view your tags by tree, only alphabetically which is another request I put in somewhere else. I tend to have a higherarchy of tags by category. I.e. - people (list of relevant people), Status (draft, final, rev 1 ,rev 2), Urgency (I try to use the Eisenhower Matrix so four tags: Urgent, Important, Not Important, Not Urgent) and Type (Letter, E-mail, Contract, Phone Call, Meeting Notes, Agenda etc). because of this organization system I wish you could see the trees in iOS but you cant. I do try to keep all my tags very high level and not get specific with dates.
  3. I do make use of the shortcuts to saved searches already, those are awesome. Had not thought of saving the search parameters in the note and the script sounds interesting, unfortunately not familiar with the script language used to do such a task. (I took lots of C and C++ back in college days but haven't used it since). Any guidance on where one could go to learn to write such a script?
  4. I use it in my personal accounts as well to keep my tags organized. It is as simple as dragging and dropping to nest them. I can't do this is Evernote Business. Also, iOS does not support nesting as well. (you can't view them in that manner)
  5. I make heavy use of saved searches. I basically use saved searches as a "Project View". So if I have a project going on, or am planning a trip I create a project title (i.e. - "Kitchen Remodel 2017" or "Family Disney Vacation 2018") and title every note related to that project with that project title somewhere in the title of each note related to that project. I also put a tag called "Projects" on the note. I then can create a saved search that includes the project title (I.e. "Kitchen Remodel 2017) and the tag "Projects and I can see all relevant notes very quickly. To help maintain consistency of this system I will also maintain a reference note that lists out all my current 'projects.' I will use a table that lists project title, project description and relative time frame of the project. It would be awesome to be able to include in that table a link that runs a specific search for that project so I could use it like a table of contents and not be managing a bunch of saved searches. I'm sure someone will ask me why I don't just create a tag for each project. I specifically do not create a specific tag for each project because I will be ever increasing the number of tags and over time I will have a more cluttered mess of tags than I do now. Also, if I ever wanted to clean them up I would have to delete the tag which would effectively break the link between relevant projects. With the system I have devised I can always recreate the search query if I wanted to go back and review or search a specific project for something even if I have deleted the saved search.
  6. I have all three accounts signed in on my Windows machine at work and my mac at home just like you and can switch between the 3 of them easily enough. When it comes to the iOS version of Evernote they only let you sign into one business account and one standard (non-business) version account. So I can be signed into my business account and one of the other two non-business version accounts. Looking to be able to be signed into all three on a iOS device just like on the windows PC or Mac at home. Not so much because I am sharing data between the two personal account so much as the two personal accounts are structured so different (one for personal use at home and with my family and the other one for work).
  7. Two Items specifically: 1. Be able to nest tags for organization purposes (i.e. - If I want a tag for each department, let me nest them under a top level hierarchy tag called "Departments" 2. Ability to lock down the creation and modification company wide so only Evernote admins (or other select people) can create or change Tags. I'm worried I'll end up with a billion random and closely related tags because employees mistype or slightly change (i.e -use a plural instead of a singular: 'New Designs' vs. 'New Design')
  8. I have a personal evernote account and a second account that was created when I converted my 'business' use account to Evernote Business and then my, now formal, Evernote Business account. At this time I am not sure I want to combine my two personal accounts (one for home life and one for work). Please make it so I can log into more than one personal account on the IOS app!
  9. With the way I have chosen to organize my notes within Evernote, I have a master list of projects it would be nice to create a link to run a saved search. I create a "table of contents" if you will that represents all the various projects I have going at work. I view all the relevant notes to a specific project through a saved search (generally a combination of text that is in the title of every note associated to the project and a tag or two). It would be nice to link the title of each project on my table of contents type page to a saved search that displays all the relevant notes associated with that project. Please contact me if clarification is required.
