    The New Evernote Web Layout Is HORRIBLE

    I switched to Dynalist.io a while back. It's not the same thing as Evernote and on Android lacks a lot of the features (but has none of the bugs either). The web app is smooth though and for doing GTD it's perfect! I stayed subscribed here hoping I would see a positive change in Evernote, so I could switch back. That' just not going to happen.

    The New Evernote Web Layout Is HORRIBLE

    I switched to Dynalist.io. For GTD it is working much better than Evernote does. I use documents for contexts, hash-tags for projects, colour labels for priorities, at-tags for people, and global searches visualizing all the actions related to project regardless of context. I'm currently using the free tier of Dynalist.io but I'm very tempted by their early-bird pricing. The consol pricing is very expensive, and there's no free tier to really test-drive before buying (30-days free isn't enough, I need at least a couple months cycle). And the Dynalist.io development team is way more responsive than the EN team is!!!
  3. Bummer. I was hoping all the time saved by using a hosted platform would give you time to work on your APIs.
  4. Does this also mean there will be a new API that's more accessible both to time-constrained/hobbyist developers and to more programming languages and platforms (since it won't rely on the Thrift compilation process)? Thanks,

    New Evernote for Windows, v6.0 (6.0.6) GA

    I just tried the Windows client, typically I use the web version because there's no Linux client. The thing is, I've prefixed all my tags with symbols (+, =, ?, ...) and I've chosen them specifically because their sort order. So on a note the + tags are always first, etc. That works perfectly in the web version. But the sort order of all the tags on a particular note is different on the Windows version! For example, create a Note and add the four tags: +agenda 5-Someday ?Eric =Blog. On the web version they will stay in that order. On the Windows version however they will be ?Eric +agenda =Blog 5-Someday. It would be really nice if the sort order of the tags on a Note was consistent. And really really nice if Notes could be sorted by their tags in the web version (like you can do in the Windows version). And really really really nice if the web had a list view like the Windows version does.

    Please don't kill the list view

    I just tried the new Windows version, and the tags are not sorted there! I'm not sure how they are ordered, I guess in the order they are added. In the Windows version I can sort the Tag column though, which is something I can't do on the web version.

    Please don't kill the list view

    So here's what I'm doing now that I'm up and running for a few weeks. Things are going pretty well. To make sure my the tags on my notes/to-dos sort consistently I adopted the following punctuation prefixes because the sort order is the ASCII table: + for Contexts, like +home and +work and +agenda 0-9 for Priorities, like 0-Daily, 1-Now, ..., 9-Done = for Projects, like =Blog, =Maintenance, ... ? for Who, like ?John Oliver, ?Stephen Colbert, ... So I know the first tag will always be the Context, the second the Priority, etc. It makes quickly scanning a list much more effective without having to do too much filtering - which Evernote could certainly do better at - like AND & OR so I could have +work AND (0-Daily OR 1-Now). From there everything actionable is in my Inbox (which I can filter by Context - some Contexts overlap physical locations, like being on-line or making phone calls can happen almost anywhere these days) and everything else is in my Reference stack (or my Xrchive if it's a completed action with interesting notes). Thanks @DTLow for your help getting started.

    Some of my notes have disappeared

    Thanks @kgg I replied to the email. I guess the only thing I would add to this thread, for the benefit of the community, is the difference in confirmation messages when deleting a Notebook between the classic Evernote Web and the beta Evernote Web. The Classic version has an explicit and dire warning of what's going to happen!!! Evernote Web Classic Evernote Web Beta
  9. Thanks. Some Googling confirms that's pretty much the solution. I was hoping Evernote would have their own solution, so as to avoid creating yet another account with yet more permissions to access my other accounts. I'm considering a Plus subscription (for offline access and emailing in) but I can't really justify the Premium subscription - the only interesting feature for me is the version history.
  10. Any way to set-up automatic backups in Evernote web, to Google Drive or Dropbox or something like that? I only use Evernote Web, I don't have the thick client installed anywhere. The other thing I use is the Android app, but I didn't find anything there either. Thanks,

    Some of my notes have disappeared

    Good evening, I've noticed recently some of my notes have gone missing from Evernote. Two of them contained images (one a photo take with phone, the other a screenshot taken with Chrome clipper extension), the third one was just text. There may be others but I just don't remember them. I've been flipping back-and-forth between the classic web and beta web version lately, trying to get GTD implemented on my notes. I'm not sure if that's related. For whatever reason it's extremely frustrating, especially for the third note since it contained a to-do list that I now have to try and re-create from memory. Does anyone know of if there's any way to find and restore those missing notes (I only use Evernote web and the Android app on my phone and tablet); and a reliable automated backup solution for Evernote so I can be sure this doesn't happen again! Thanks,

    That looks pretty good. I remember now back in my Palm Pilot days when I GTD'd Outlook. I did something like that too with punctuation at the beginning of the category. I may just draw some plagiarisminspiration from your implementation! Thanks. Part of my issue is I'm using Evernote Web (I'm on Linux at home) so it's not 100% as functional as the Windows or Mac apps. I'm going to check-out Cronofy, that looks cool. I'm pretty happy with Evernote Reminders and the daily emails.

    What's your implementation? I'm trying to follow The Secret Weapon (TSW) but I'm not 100% sold on it.

    Web BETA Feature Requests

    The other thing I would really need from the old version in order to continue using Evernote for GTD is the ability to select multiple tags and only show those notes with both of those tags.

    Please don't kill the list view

    Good afternoon, The list view is essential when using Evernote to implement GTD. In the Action notebooks each note is essentially a to-do item (with supporting information in the body). So having a list view is very efficient to see everything that needs to be done in the current context. Also seeing the associated tags is more useful than seeing the date the note was created or updated. Read up on the The Secret Weapon, or head over to David Allen's web site and see how they implement GTD on Evernote. There are other tools for implementing GTD - I've recently tried Nozbe and Nirvana - but no one, absolutely no one, has the ability to capture information like Evernote. I just hope Evernote still provides an interface that makes implementing GTD smooth and easy as opposed to a compromise. Thanks,
