  1. ok you've piqued my interest... How do I or can you point me to a reference on how to do a boolean-equivalent search?
  2. Your snide comment aside, I more than get the invested hours as I have lived in that a world for a number of years. And I have no idea why you think my comment implies EN is a charity. My whining attitude was to simply have someone in product management scratch their chin when looking at their feature/function list across plans.
  3. I am a huge Evernote fan. I have been using it for a number of years. I have thousands of notes used for a wide range of purposes. However, I must admit that I am annoyed by the fact that my Personal plan limits my widgets to one. Why is it that Evernote Marketing decided that a personal use of their product does not need to have multiple filtered notes, pinned notes or scratch pad widgets? Or that a personal user does not need to use Boolean terms to refine search results? I get the separation with Professional users with connectivity to 3rd party collaboration tools and even advanced PDF integration (e.g. exporting). However, no multiple widgets or Boolean? C’mon. Really?
  4. Currently, the three dots to allow for a saved search is available when you use the Search field. Is there a reason why those three dots do not appear when I use the Filter? My goal in using the Filter is the same in using the Search field. The advantage of the Filter is the UI in performing my search. Would you please consider adding a Saved Search from filtered notes as you do with a Search result?
  5. Hi. I know how to create a note from an email. Is it possible to create a task from an email? i have not been able to find anything on this. -dvollc
  6. It's been over a week since 10.9 has been announced as released. Yet, I don't have it available for downloading from the App Store. Please make it available. Thank you. -DaverDee
  7. What is the typical turnaround time between an update announcement and App Store availability? I use EN on my Mac. There was a new version announced on Wed. As of today (Tues), I don't see it from the Mac App Store. How long does it take for the update to be available after the announcement?
  8. Hello jvmatl. Is there a reason why you can't leverage macOS' screen capture? While I run macOS Big Sur, I believe the Shift-CMD-4 combo worked in Catalina too.
  9. My request assumes a list is created by multiple notes. I am wondering if the EN product managers and the EN user population disagrees with the assumption because when I look at the EN templates provided (Weekly Planner and To-Do specifically), they are lists using one note. To me, the power of EN comes from the organization of multiple notes. Each note can have its own combination of tags. A list comprising of multiple notes allows me to look at the multiple notes from different perspectives. Having a list comprising of one note means each item in the list has the same tags. There is no way to relate an item on the single note list with information on other notes. I find this extremely limiting and ignores the flexibility offered with multiple note based lists. Currently, in following the multiple note list approach, I use saved searches as my means of creating lists. The issue I have and as pointed out in my feature request, is that all saved search output have the same columns and sort structure. Having the saved search include the column and sort definitions greatly enhances what saved searches produce. Do you see my point? Or, is it just too easy to use one note to create a list vs the trouble of having to create the saved searches? Thanks for the opportunity to post.
  10. I’d like the ability to have multi-level sort capability by tag for note lists. The beauty of tags is the one-to-many relationship that can be established between a note and a tag. I take advantage of this ability including nesting tags. In my use case of an Evernote implementation for GTD, I have a set of Priority tags and Action tags. My Priority tags are: Priority Priority:Critical Priority:Important Priority:Nice to have My Action tags are: Action Action:Read Action:Listen Action:Watch Action:Followup Valuable lists can be produced with Priority as the first level sort and Action the second level. Another valuable list can be produced with the opposite - Action as the first level sort followed by Priority as the second level. This is only one use case. Given that there will be numerous tags used with a note, presenting a list of all tags to define the multi-level sort makes my ask universal.
  11. Let me further describe what I am requesting as I don't think I was clear... Evernote’s output is a list of notes. From all the notes, one can filter using either the query language or the UI. The list structure is defined by a set of columns and a sort by one of those columns. There is one structure definition for all lists. You can change the structure definition by adding/removing columns and you can change the sort. However, the changes are then applied for all lists. When a list is saved, it is called a Saved Search as the filter is saved in some entity for future use. When a Saved Search is re-opened, the filter is applied - along with the current columns/sort defined for all lists. I am requesting the columns and sort to be saved along with the filter when creating a Saved Search.
  12. Currently (as I understand it), there is one set of column and sort attributes for all views. I leverage saved searches to help me with my GTD implementation with Evernote. It would be of high value to have each saved search hold onto the columns and sorting I defined for that view.
  13. The list of notes do not automatically reflect changes to note attributes (title, tag, etc). The only way I see changes reflected in the list is by manually regenerating the list. The consequence of the current state is when I am updating a number of notes from the list, I lose track of what changes I made to what notes. Having the list automatically reflect the latest changes ensures I know which notes I've updated.
  14. I agree. It makes tag data entry so much faster. I would think the core algorithms are already there with the search functionality.
  15. I miss not being able to have a shorter note list with more attributes but wider views of notes.
  16. I'd like to see the tag input mechanism found on Android and iOS be used on all platforms where the text entered acts as "contained within" search criteria. For example, if I have a tag labeled "Priority:Critical" and I enter "crit" in the tag data entry field, I'd like to see "Priority:Critical" appear as a choice (along with any other tag that has "crit" embedded in its label.
  17. I'd like to be able to export any note listing as a table for importing into external applications such as Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.
  18. I'd like to execute a sort on a note listing by clicking on a column heading with the first click either ascending or descending with a follow up click going in the opposite direction.
  19. I'd like to see all note attributes available as a column choice. For example, I'd like to see Reminder date/time as a column choice.
  20. It was my intention to post this where Evernote was accepting ideas for future feature/functions. Seeing that it was divided into platforms with no overarching area that was independent of platform, I posted it in the Web Client area. My apologies if the post was placed in the wrong area. -DVOllc
  21. One of the Evernote's strengths against its competition (e.g. OneNote) is search. Yet, I find the UI associated with the search capabilities to be limited...constraining...hidden...inconsistent across platforms. Accessing advance searches should not be primarily from knowing the Evernote search syntax. On my Mac, hiding the search "builder" as an unobtrusive button after clicking on the Search field makes no sense to me. Having an easy to use search builder that is front and center is something I eagerly raise my hand for. And this request is platform independent. Evernote goes to great lengths to get data into Evernote. Evernote should go to great lengths to get it out. Thank you for the opportunity to express my opinion. -DVOllc
  22. Hello. I would like to see a more consistent UI across all the platforms. I use Evernote across all the platforms and I am disappointed that there is a learning curve for each. While I understand there may be constraints and potential for extra features across the platforms, I see value in having more consistency in terms of layout and common feature/functions available across the platforms. Thank you for the opportunity to voice my opinion. -DVOllc
  23. DTLow: Thank you. I must admit that I was ignorant of Work Chat. Now that I am not, I see the attempts to share showing up in the chat window. However, the turnaround time is slow to say the least. And now I need to learn the rules...ie - I see I can share a note from an unshared notebook. Thanks for shedding some light on my situation. gazumped: Thank you. One of the accounts was indeed a new one. And I was trying to share immediately after creating the new account. Now that the grace period (so to speak is over) I am seeing the sharing transactions through the Work Chat window. Thanks for the scoop. -DVO
  24. I am confused as to why I am unable to share either a notebook or a note with another person. I'd appreciate any insight. There are two free accounts. One on Mac. Another on Windows. (Although the symptom is also on the web.). The Mac account is linked to a Live email account. The Windows uses Gmail. (if this matters.). I create a notebook, right click on the notebook name, click on Share, enter the Gmail account, and nothing on the Gmail account end. I create a note, right click on the note, click on Share, enter the Gmail account, and nothing on the Gmail account end. Shouldn't the Gmail account end somehow see or get notified that the note is there somewhere within the Evernote instance whether it be within the client or website? What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance. -DVO
  25. Thank you for the post as I would greatly benefit with a Tag sort option. In addition, I'd like to add to the request and ask DTLow a question. I often apply multiple tags to a note. In the GTD world, I add at least two. One tag for the note's category and another tag for its priority. Therefore, not only would l like to be able to sort notes as defined by jfkaess but also like to have a multi-level sort and multi-tag sort ability. To DTLow...how do you deal with multiple tags with your workaround? Do you enter the tag to sort as always the first tag you enter? -David
