  1. Hi


    There are a few tools around already to help send email messages into Evernote.  The basic idea is simple; if you are using Evernote as your GTD or task tracking system, you want an easy way to throw emails into Evernote and get rid of them from your Inbox.


    Many of these tools require a third party application in order to set the shortcut key.  I've written an Automator action for Mac that runs as a "service", which in normal peoples terms means you can easily set a shortcut cut for this in System Preferences. 


    Here's a link to my documentation about it: http://goo.gl/WIXG3x


    This Automator action is very specific (but can be easily changed if you know Applescript), it will:

    1. Use the currently selected emails in Mail.app to...
    2. Create evernote notes for each selected email and then...
    3. Move each selected email to the "Archive" folder of the appropriate Mail.app account, finally setting it's background to blue (so you know it was moved into Evernote)

    It's simple, but super effective - and one cool idea is that the Evernote note retain a link back to the original email message.


    You can download the Automator action, and install this by following the instructions here.


    Happy Evernote'ing!

  2. I'd like to obtain your feedback about software I'm creating that solves this conflict problem in Evernote.   
    I'm the CTO of a software company and I use Evernote to store all my business ideas, development plans, suggestions and research information - and I share a lot of this with my teams.
    My conflict management solution will identify which notes have conflicts, and resolve these in most cases automatically, allowing you to preview the resolution before accepting it. In advanced cases, you'll be able to manually resolve conflicts using a UI - thus you will avoid using lots of time or energy to export notes in order to fix the conflicts.  
    I would appreciate knowing if you would use such a product, would you please be able to take another 2 minutes to answer the following questions?
    1. Do you wish there was a better way to resolve conflicts in an Evernote note? (yes/no)
    2. Do you wish there was a better way to share changes you make to your Evernote notes with those you are sharing them with? (yes/no)
    3. What do you think such a solution is worth paying for - if offered as a subscription based service:
    • 15 - 20 p/month
    • 10 - 15 p/month
    • 5 - 10 p/month
    • Nothing
    4. What Evernote intergrations are you using already - mark all that apply:
    • IFTTT
    • Hojoki
    • Zapier
    • Other (please provide it's name): _______________________
    5. Why do you use the product indicated in question (4) above:
    • ___________________________________________________
    I would like to thank you for the time you've spent answering these questions by offering you a free 1 year subscription to the product when it is released.
    If you wish to ask me any questions or provide further feedback, please pm me.
    Sincerely and with thanks, 
    John Clayton
