  1. I moved from Minnesota to Maine 5 years ago. So all my Minnesota stuff is stored in the archived account. As time marches forward, I will start moving some of the Maine stuff. The Evernote basic maximum monthly transfer restriction is one reason that I try to move stuff every month. It also helps keep the premium account toned down to a manageable quantity. I don't have a pressing need for my heating bill (etc.) from 5 years ago, but it is nice to know I can find it if I need it.
  2. I've been using Evernote for 11 years and created over 54,000 notes. I have a paid PREMIUM and a free BASIC Evernote account. My old stuff (5 years old or older) eventually gets ARCHIVED to my basic account. My current stuff (29,000 notes) stays in my premium account
  3. This shortcut so fast and so easy that a few backspaces (to remove the time) is still a shortcut.
  4. I actively use & modify the Created Date on most of my notes. If I get an email confirmation for a payment I made 3 days ago, I will change the created date to match the actual date I made the payment. The same thing will happen if I add some old family history. It helps with the timeline. In other words, I use Evernote to do what I want it to do. And for safety, I use a date prefix (yyyy-mm-dd) at the beginning of my note title. For the original question, I would probably either use a spreadsheet or use the Evernote Created Date with a tag for the name of the author. I also maintain a reference note in Evernote with tips on Date Searches. There are so many things that can be done with the date field. Election day (what a great day!) Created between Nov 7, 2016 and Nov 9, 2016 created:20161107 -created:20161109 Receipts during first 6 months of 2015 not entered into Quicken Receipts between Jan 1, 2015 and July 1, 2015 created:20150101 -created:20150701 tag:receipt -tag:quicken-done Notes on my daughter created on or before July 4, 2013 and the beginning of time created:19000101 -created:20130704 tag:fam-BEB CREATED (since) created:day = today created:day-1 = yesterday created:week = this week (since Sunday) created:week-1 = last week (since last Sunday) created:month = this month created:month-1 = last month created:year = this year created:year-1 = last year CREATED (before) today = -created:day yesterday = -created:day-1 this week = -created:week last week = -created:week-1 this month = -created:month last month = -created:month-1 this year = -created:year last year = -created:year-1
  5. That was my initial thought. I keep Evernote running all day long and something else might be the culprit. That is the reason I wanted the Tech people to scan through my Activity Log. I'll give it a try myself.
  6. I used to try to stay with a version that was 2 to 3 months old, but it got difficult remembering when to upgrade to a new level and still avoid the current version. So a few months ago, I bit the bullet and started upgrading when a new public version was released. So I'll probably do the full delete and reinstall this weekend.
  7. Just a rant - I know what the final solution will be. The infamous uninstall and reinstall of my 30,000 notes. Me: A couple of weeks ago, I upgraded my Evernote Windows to version 6.18.4.849 (308489) Public. Me: The program would randomly shut down with no warning and no error message a few times during the week. Evernote would not start up again unless I rebooted. Me: So I submitted a support ticket and requested that Evernote tech review my activity log first, before I resorted to the standard Evernote response (a complete uninstall / reinstall / resync). ES: Support responded with 4 bullet points, but no comment about my activity log * Sign out your Evernote account * Clear cache * Perform to reboot * Log back in ES: If you're unsuccessful, please attach the screen recording detailing the issue. ES: You can provide a screen recording using Jing, a free third-party application. Me: Alarm bells going off in my head. Did he read and understand my support request? I did tell him this was a random occurrence. And I noticed there is a warning on Jing's home page. "NOTE: Jing’s current video format (.swf) will no longer be supported by web browsers soon. You can still capture images with Jing, but if you need an all-in-one solution for image and video capture, we recommend trying Snagit." Me: Sounded fishy to me. I wondered if English was his native language. So I asked him what he meant by "Perform to reboot". (Was he using Google Translator to create his replies?) Me: He did not explain, but went in a different direction. ES: Glad you replied back, and sorry for the confusion it has caused you. ES: Can you confirm if you recently created a note with attachment? Me: He asked me to copy the content of each note into a new note, delete the original note, empty the trash and sync Evernote. Me: During the month of May, I created 218 notes. 159 of those notes have attachments. I asked him if he wants me to make copies of the 159 notes, and delete the 159 originals. Me: There has been no Evernote Support response yet.
  8. Search: Type first letter to run the search. Typing a 2nd letter will run search again. Typing a 3rd letter will run search again. Going to be an issue when I want to search for multiple terms - for example: created:20150101 -created:20150701 tag:receipt -tag:quicken-done Speed has always been a problem with Evernote. Support finally told me to create a 2nd account to spread out my data to address the issue. Evernote has made promises of major web rewrites in the past. I am a bit biased after not seeing the previously promised major improvements to the web version.
  9. After seeing the video, it tweaked my interest. I decided to look at the current web version. Same old variety of problems - such as where is the Created Date. Spent 5 minutes searching the help link, but came up with non-related issues. The video leads me to believe the new web version is going to be more complicated. And too many conflicts with the Android version caused me to drop the smartphone version. So my Evernote status continues to be limited to my desktop computer for record keeping. (approaching 50,000 notes split over two accounts) Web use is nowhere on my itinerary. And yes, this comment is on topic.
  10. Thanks Evernote apparently upgraded the Web Clipper and automatically reverted it back to Smart Filing. I shut it down a couple of years ago. I found the solution to shut it down. * Right click on the Evernote Clipper icon * Select <Options> * Under General, scroll down to <Notebook Destination> * Select <Use> and pick default notebook
  11. Evernote Web Cliper extension 7.9.0 in Chrome The Web Clipper used to always put my web captures in my default notebook. Recently it has decided to put the web capture in a notebook it thinks is more appropriate. How do I tell it to stop and revert to the normal method?
  12. The max number of Tags is 100,000 A few years ago, I worked with a software developer and he had over 4,000 tags. https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005247-What-are-the-system-limits-of-Evernote-
  13. This solution is outrageous! Evernote needs to slow down their "public" releases and spend significantly more time on their internal quality control.
  14. "woefully out-of-date" That is an understatement! I first noticed the potato search issue back on July 31, 2009. Over the years, there have been many confusing and conflicting stabs from users attempting to explain the Evernote potato logic. But as we have been told many times before, Evernote staff read every single one of our posts. They'll get around to it. After 10 years, my comment is: Yeah, sure... I'll believe it when I see it.
  15. With Evernote Windows 1.) In the Note List panel, right click on the title and click >Print Note... or 2.) Enlarge note to full screen, select >File and >Print
