  1. No . . . . They Are Not Listening. Evernote had HUGE amounts of Goodwill from it's users. When I got really serious about using Evernote, I was blown away with the amount of Goodwill / Good Faith / Trust / that the hard core user community had about this app. It was people like Gazumped, BurgersNFries, JMichael, and Csihilling and many others that convinced me, through learning from them and their faith in the app, that going premium was a good idea for me -- YOUR CORE USERS ARE WHAT SOLD ME. Not you. Not your slick promo videos, Not all your marketing efforts. You Are Not Listening. You are now bleeding goodwill in buckets. The people that really use your service are telling you they can't use the beta to do any kind of meaningful work with their existing data and You Are Not Listening.
  2. Evernote is writing the chapter of WHAT YOU DON'T DO to your core user base. 1 ) You throw at us a "Web Beta" that is clearly not even close to complete. It's stripped of all functionality 2) You give the user community NO INFORMATION on where you are going with this other than spouting the new company policy of "workspace" 3) You get hammered with feedback on how HORRIBLE and UTTERLY USELESS this new UI is for working with existing notes and data 4) you do NOTHING but say "This is great feedback", "We want to hear your feedback", "Keep the feedback coming" and things like "3 more functions are going to be added in the new Beta," and maybe "6 more functions on the drawing table" 5) Crickets Chirping . . .. . . . . NOTHING . . .. . . No word . . . . No response . . . . No attempt at addressing the most basic core problem many people have with the Beta AND their people's growing concern over the direction of the desk top platforms as well . .. . . Crickets Chirping . . .. . . .
  3. So . . . back to how the new Web UI Beta sucks pond water. It's as if Adobe Photoshop started stripping away functions so they cold look more like Microsoft Paint -- that is insanity, Phil Libin. NO ONE likes the "Suggested" content Facebook pushes on people. WE DON'T need yet more INPUT platforms -- we have our phones. We have our Pads WHAT WE DO NEED is meaningful context platform to do meaningful searches and the ability to move information, data and notes. We can't do that wtih the new Web Beta You are KILLING the most prized thing you have -- the most versatile visual platform database on the planet WHY ARE YOU BETTING THE FARM . . . so you can look more like Facebook??? Put the gun down Phil Libin, Step away from from pulling the trigger. Life is meaningful as an External Brain . . .. It's okay Phil . .. You were doing good. . . You were at the top . . . You were . . ., You were ALREADY "bending the universe" You want a platform for working with business -- build it -- separately -- link it somehow. YOU DON'T KILL WHAT IS WORKING AND WHAT IS LEADING THE WORLD ALREADY Put the gun down Phil . .. . .. Put it down . . .
  4. Yup. the web beta is worthless for GTD, its' worthless for Research where you need to do complex retrieval, its worthless for any kind of retrieval where you need context, switching quickly back and forth between notebooks and tags. [edit] took out the -- evernote employees aren't reading this comment lol
  5. mmm hmmm kind of what I thought too, JMichael. We are all just spitting into the wind. When you're "Bending the Universe" -- deep into forum threads is not where you spend your time
  6. Archiving is one of the biggest reasons the mega users recommend tags over a heavy reliance on Notebooks, . . . .Just say-en For me, tags tend to really cut the clutter of false positives, then if your looking at your snippet by "last updated", the older things -- presumably things that would be archived are at the bottom. For GTD -- saved searches in shortcuts for "Important+Urgent", "Important+Not Urgent" etc - saved searches with "Unfinished to-do- items" will automatically Archive a note off the search when the last check box is checked
  7. EVERNOTE HAS CHANGED ITS VISION It is no longer interested in letting you retrieve your information as its main purpose So the New Web UI reflects this new Vision, not what we thought it was. These posts from another thead are very relavent https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/73509-me-vs-market/?locale=en So I think I am seeing the Modus Operandi behind the new Web Based Client UI -- Evernote is no longer interested in our ability to retrieve information as its core use but to be a workspace for collaborative projects for corporations and small work groups -- that's great if you want a good Microsoft replacement but it's not what a lot of us use Evernote for. The 100 year company of information retrieval is gone. I am troubled and keeping my eyes open for the next company that wants and is interested in storing and meaningful Retrieval of MY information.
  8. JMichael, really hit the nail on the head WE NEED THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE OLD LOOK Small Power user here, 6,000+ notes, on it every day iPhone, windows Desktop, iPad 90% of the time I need: I need to see the left panel with shortcuts, notebooks and nested tags I need to see the left panel plus the snippets I need to see the left panel plus snippets AND full note all at once do I like that these can sometimes go away? that the text of the functions and control buttons fade out 80-90% to give more focus to the note? sure but I have to have a way of seeing all of this old functionality,. Adding more mouse clicks and mouse movements to get what I need IS not helping me work.
  9. awwww, no spaces after comma, worked this time for me Thanks gazumped yeah that's the way I usually do it
  10. I tried a comma between them and it only sent the first address Windows desktop
  11. Right I didn't type that right, the 1st Notebook is for ALL your students - you share the whole notebook The second notebook you only share individual singular notes with each parent -- NOT the whole notebook, or you could have a notebook for each student you just have a limit -- would work for a primary teacher not a secondary teacher that might have hundreds of students
  12. Edits and emphases by me Okay let's say . . . this . . . is what you are asking? Reading between the lines, lets further say you have shared a Notebook with your class and Parents with projects the class is working on and maybe a calendar http://bit.ly/19ssncy * * * Caveat -- I am not a teacher * * * * I would set up 3 separate Notebooks for the class 1) one notebook you use like a blog that would post the wonderful things the class is doing together - You share this with the whole class 2) another notebook you might set up wtih each child, then you share individually each child note with the parents -- Share each note separately 3) Create a 3rd notebook for teachers notes, for each child -- this you do NOT share with the class or do NOT share with the parents (other than maybe in person conference . . .I don't know about the delicacies of what you should and shouldn't do there) -- for me I would need to visually differenciate between the note to the parents and the teacher-notes on the student you do not want to post to the parents -- I think I would do it with color image banner across the top of the note - Use red for private teacher notes and green for shared with parent's notes. you want to make it extremely obvious what note you are writing in and editing. I could see how this could get confused. Edit -- here is a link on how to share (obviously you want to test this on yourself or another teacher first so you know you are doing it right) https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/24973036
  13. Is it just me? I wonder what it would be like to be retained to market a file folder system? . . .. .. Now let's see . . . how would I go about doing that? hmmmmmmmmmmmmm I need a problem .. . . a problem that isn't getting answered. . . . say what? . . . you say it's been answered? . . .. . .that won't work . . .. . Let's just pretend it isn't answered . . . .. [name drop] . . . [name drop]
  14. Missb this is awesome, I think something like this could work especially well when your sharing a Notebook and there is a shared calendar with links to the appropriate dated events
  15. Ha ha ha . . . . okay, NOW we are getting somewhere. I get that your frustrated. I really do. And I get the Clueless as well. CLUELESS is my middle name and Clueless is my native state. Take a deep breath and just reflect a little bit here. We are 89 posts into this thread and BurgersNFries answered your question in Post number 2. If it were me . .. . . and I am just say-en, if it were me I would run to her and give her a big fat kiss on the cheek, a big thank you, and a big fat PLEASE forgive my cluelessness -- but that's just me . .. . . because I'm always clueless BurgersNFries is on here everyday . . . . she is not paid (that I know of -- she sure as hell should be) and she has answered people's cluless cries for help 12,857 times . .. . she didn't have to . . . . Ever one of your questions have been answered. Every one . . . . and Vance . . . . ..if you can stop seeing red for just a minute . . . . BurgersNFries is STILL reaching out to you STILL trying to help you solve the fragmented image folder problem -- this is tips and tricks you won't get from me (why? because I'm clueless but she knows it) she is telling you EXACTLY how to take all those fragmented images in all the folders and move them into one . . . OMG, Vance . .. . . .. she is STILL trying to help you BurgersNFries deserves the Evernote equivalent of the Congressional Medal of Honour !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! anyway . . . . . I do understand the frustrations, but please . .. please understand who is trying to help you. Good luck with CloudHQ and wish you the best/
