  1. Surely there's a viable case for normal Evernote (free and/or premium) to share notebooks without requiring a more costly Business account. In my case, I share notebooks between my work and personal accounts. Now, I don't need to engage in Work Chat with myself when I use shared notebooks with myself (and presumably you could share a note with your wife using the share-by-email facility, as onerous as people seem to believe it is to use it). In fairness, I don't see Work Chat as being as well-explained as it ought to be, and I'm guessing it's not as fully baked as Evernote intends it to be. But I do see utility in being able to have the ability to have discussion about shared notes and notebooks among collaborators, and have it be captured by Evernote as a context for that shared collaboration. I've shared notebooks in Evernote for years without Work Chat and it has worked just fine. Now, the only way to share notebooks is confusing and a bit like working in the dark with just a flashlight. As I noted, "I have used Work chat three times to test it out. My recipients have not received a message (at least not one we can find) any of the times." I could see some utility in Work Chat working as Evernote (seems to?) envision it. But, for me, it's literally a button in my UI that does not work. I would like to remove it -- especially on iOS where it sits much too close to the new note button. Work Chat is not going to make me quit using Evernote -- though it has made it harder for me to do some things I'm used to doing in Evernote. This thread was started asking for a way to turn off Work Chat. I would like that very much.
  2. Emailing a note in the Mac client is no longer accessible through the "share" icon on the note itself. You have to go up to the toolbar, click Note, click More sharing, click Email (at the bottom of the list). People without business accounts should not be subjected to Work Chat. It's not explicitly clear what my recipients will see when I share a note via Work chat. Will the note only be accessible on the web app? Will they get an email about my sharing the note? When sharing to someone like my wife who only uses Evernote when I share a note with her, will she have to log in to Evernote to get my Work chat -- in other words, will I have to send another message to her letting her know I've sent her a message via Evernote? I have used Work chat three times to test it out. My recipients have not received a message (at least not one we can find) any of the times. To reiterate, if it was clear what Work Chat actually does, I may be more apt to use it. As of now, it a) hasn't worked when I've tried it and b ) isn't clear what it actually does.
  3. That sounds like a bug if the popup is persistent. Once that is cleared up, I don't imagine Work Chat will be in your way too much. I haven't needed to share anything since Work Chat was released, so honestly, I don't even notice that it is there. I have yet to see it interfere with my workflow (popups aside). A lot of people are complaining about WC and want it disabled, but none seem to be able to clearly articulate why they feel that way (other than saying "because I just do"). I'd be very interested to hear if/how Work Chat interferes with your flow (aside from popups, which are definitely frustrating) once your popup situation is resolved. I am definitely NOT dismissing your feelings! I am sincerely interested in understanding why people are so desperate to disable something that, to me, is barely noticeable. It's way too close to the new note icon on iOS. That's why I want it gone. I tried it once and the message has never shown up on any of my colleagues Evernote's -- Mac, web, or iOS. Sharing was not broken. Allow us to turn off features we do not use.
  4. Addresses open in Apple Maps. Hyperlinking to a Google Maps URL opens in Safari. Could we get a way to choose which Maps app we want to use?
  5. Just came in to re-iterate a request for this. Also, when command-clicking to select multiple, clicking outside a tag (missing one while trying to click a ton) clears the selection. Ugh.
  6. Using the clipper should include the URL. I know it always does in Chrome (for me) but I don't use Safari.
  7. Some people have been really helpful in the past. I'm going to go through and "like" some helpful posts in old threads I've started.

  9. Feedback: I had to do a cmd-f to find the sign in link. It needs to be more obvious.
