I should have narrowed my critique. It does not defeat the entire purpose of Evernote. To employ the workaround for that feature defeats the advantages we hoped Evernote would bring to that activity. This is particularly frustrating when that particular shared activity--group web browsing, discovery and sharing (cross group & device)--is one of the main reasons for our adoption of Evernote.
As the title suggests, our group of users at Orca Health would very much like to Web Clip to a shared account. Giovanna F. of the online chat customer service help team suggested a workaround wherein we copy and paste the Web Clips from our own folders into the shared folder. This, of course, defeats the entire purpose of Evernote.
