    Hi All,

    You may have noticed that all threads requesting Inline Tags/Anchor Points have been merged into this thread, regardless of platform specificity.

    (This is a separate request from the ability password protect the Evernote App itself)

    This was done in order to better enable us to quantify and qualify user requests, and amplify their voice.

    While this does not mean this is a feature that will be coming, we certainly want to relay user feedback/sentiment to our various teams.

    Moving forward, please put all commentary and votes for Inline Tags/Anchor Points here!

    How many power users does it take to get a feature developed? Links within notes would take you 1 - 2 weeks (one sprint). Its also a feature all of your major competitors have.

    I think you need to look at your voice of the customer feedback a little more seriously. Evernote is supposedly known for its design thinking methodologies. But clearly this is not the case.

    Its been 6 years and hundreds of customers requesting this feature. Its time to start listening or start losing.

    Agreed, jump anchors are a quite useful feature; I use them in many of my documents

    >>Dude, stop making excuses <whine> <whine>

    No excuses; just solutions

    There's a feature request posted at the top of the discussion.  You're welcome to indicate your support using the vote button at the top left corner of the discussion

    >>Evernote is a document tool.

    Evernote is a note/document storage and organization tool   
    The Included note editor is adequate for basic notes - but no jump anchors

    >>So I move the note to docs and voila.

    I use Apple Pages.  Microsoft Word is also a good solution    
    The document is stored as a note attachment



    Thanks for your feedback!

    I've already upvoted this over a year ago. Not sure why, since it doesn't appear that these power user requests are being prioritized.


    Yes, Apple pages and Google Docs and Microsoft Word are all good solutions, but you need to go to a new application.

    We pay more for Evernote than all 3 of those above put together. This should be a feature that Evernote has. Its very easy to do and would take minimal development work.

    Anyway, if this feature doesn't come by the end of my annual sub I will be moving off Evernote completely. Google Docs is now 100% up to speed with the ease of access to docs, and mobile friendliness. Plus has 1000x more features. I've been looking for reasons to stay on Evernote as I've been a user since the beginning. Without this simple feature its a no brainer.

    Hi.  Lots of previous discussion on this. Long story short,  a note that needs internal navigation is better off as a series of short notes linked by title, tags or keywords. 

    I find it similar to mind mapping - any subject on which I'm writing a lengthy screed comes out as a series of ideas that vary widely in importance and relevance.  A mind map lets me create little notelets around the screen that I'll eventually (hopefully) link together in a logical order that may or may not have any relation to the order in which the points occurred. 

    That's why long notes need editing - I'm moving paragraphs around,  correcting the logic and generally making a coherent argument out of whatever chaotic thoughts first came up.

    Short notes are like the branches in a mind map.  I can create a note for each point,  save a search for the common title or tag, and see a list of all my notes on this subject whenever I wish.  I can create a parent Table of Contents note containing links to all my 'child' notes,  and I can move those links around in the ToC note until I like the order they're in.  Then I can either print all those notes in that order,  or just merge the notes into one.

    Some users like to keep long diary notes - a year's worth of entries in one note.  Same argument though - just have a tag for the diary so you can find all the notes or one individual.  Added benefits include:

    1. not scrolling for ages to find the current entry
    2. not losing all content to a corrupted note - at worst you may lose a day

    It works for me,  but YMMV


    This does not work and is not a good workaround.

    Clicking through multiple windows and managing your 'note' through multiple 'notes' makes no sense at all.

    MS Word is a good product for creating documents
    Evernote notes are more equivalent to web pages than "documents"    
    Regardless, jump anchors are a web page feature; also jump to sub-pages

    >>So TOC is very helpful

    I agree - I use ToCs to simplify navigation between notes

    Dude, stop making excuses for poor feature development. Evernote is not listening to users.

    This feature is the second most requested feature and has been requested for over 6 years.

    Jump anchors are not only web page feature (maybe in 2014). They are a document management feature. Evernote is a document tool. Without this simple aspect, the note taking capability is severely limited.

    For example I find myself using evernote to do academic paper writing. I need to link to other areas of the same note to cross-reference ideas, and synthesize information better. Evernote is not capable of something so simple. So I move the note to docs and voila.

    Google docs has had this feature for 5+ years. The same amount of time that this feature has been requested on Evernote. If a product manager was listening, and actually investigated this use case requested by hundreds of users, this may already be part of the program. Clearly they are not listening.

    Thanks, DTLow, and I agree with your strategy. For many situations... But I keep coming back to wanting jump links in Evernote and not having to swap between applications.

    I think Evernote needs to be aware of the shift in expectations of users who will now be familiar with navigation in OneNote, Notion, Dropbox Paper,  ZohoWriter as well as the heavyweights MS Word, Apple Pages, Google Docs etc. 

    Evernote must adapt and move on, or it will wake up and discover that its user base has moved on...

    Couldn't agree more. This feature has been requested since 2014. 6 YEARS!

    This feature could literally be added in 1-2 weeks of work from one of their teams.

    Absolutely pathetic that this application does not have linking within notes available. So simple but fundamental to research, writing, content management, and hundreds of other uses.

  6. Why isn't this a thing yet?

    Pretty sad that this company clearly not listening to users. Google docs have had this ability for years.

    If Evernote doesn't add this simple but essential note taking / document management feature,  I am moving entirely to Google.
