  1. I can confirm this with my own install of the latest beta. I worked on several notes for a mailing list and found constant sync errors while I was writing. The moment I stopped writing, the syncing stops. I have my preferences set to Manual Sync. After a restart of Evernote with this new preference, the syncing still occur, but only when I am writing in a note. This is not expected behavior when the preference is Manual Sync. Also, downgrading to an early version is not possible as well, same as @AndyDent writes. Going back to the latest stable release gives me the exact same popup, but written in Dutch Thanks Frank
  2. I helped a client out the other day to switch from Personal to Business. The onboarding to get his account to Business was no problem, also updating the Windows version to the Business version went smooth. After we worked through the Business console and the Business view I explained how he could transfer personal notebooks to business notebooks with just one right click. We started with a notebook and ofcourse, this went as expected, the whole notebook was transferred to a business notebook. But there was one caveat... He uses an extensive taggingstructure with nested tags and after the conversion, we saw the following The nested tags that are used in the given notebook were unnested and became a top level tagTags with the same name as the "business" tags are still nested since they are also used in other personal notebooks (not yet converted)Business tags are extended with the text "(businessname)"So this was quite a surprise, to see the whole nested structure fall apart and no way to get this back except manual dragging and dropping. Can somebody explain why this happens and if there is a fallback scenario to keep these tags in the nested structure when someone switches to Business after using Evernote Premium with several teammembers and already built a way of working? Has anyone experienced a situation like this and has a good solution? Thanks Frank Meeuwsen
  3. I am preparing a workshop for a client and I just found out that I can't make any recommended notebooks in the Business Console. I use my own Evernote Business account to prepare and make screenshots, but I can't seem to find any option to make a notebook in the Business Library a recommended notebook. Can anyone help me out here? Is it still there? If so, where? Is it gone? If so, why?
  4. By coincedence I started working on a project in Slack and one in Work Chat. I have to be honest, Slack is killing it. Work Chat is too cumbersome to work with. Especially when working with text-edits, an article in progress, banners, video. To first find some way of giving comments on notes and documents and then trying to find the right notes at the right time. It is strange you can't add a Work Chat note to a notebook or tag-collection. That way I have to constantly think in a meeting: Is it in workchat or in my notebooks? In Slack, chat and collaboration feels more natural and straightforward. It misses the robust document/filing system from Evernote but somehow, it just works more naturally. The search in chat and the way channels, private groups and integrations with third parties work is just great. What happened today: When I was on the road I got two notifications on my iPhone. One from Work Chat and one from Slack. The Slack notification gave me a followup which was just there in the Slack app, like you expect. But with Work Chat, the notifcation opened the iOS app and it first had to synchronize before it would show up. But it didn't. Maybe it was a bad network, but I couldn't get the Work Chat messages until I got home. Ofcourse, this may be a technical issue beyond Evernote's control, I understand. But from an average consumer/businessworker standpoint, this breaks trust in the notification and the way Evernote works. That's bad. I'd love to see a next iteration of Work Chat or at least a better collaboration between Slack and Evernote, other that the possibilities from Zapier.com and IFTTT.com. Or maybe Evernote should make decisions in focus for their own products...
  5. I'm having a discussion on some notes with an outside contractor through Work Chat. I want to add a coworker to the ongoing conversation so he also has access to the conversation and the already shared notes. I have no way to add a new person to the chat. The contractor started the chat but also has no "add person" or "+1" button to add someone else. We ended up starting a new work chat with the three of us, re-sharing the already shared notes and effectively loosing all prior communication from the previous chat. Is there a better way for this in Work Chat? Frank
  6. It looks as if public notebooks are still available through the API. Can anyone with some development knowledge confirm this with an example? Perhaps it's pretty easy to build a temporary solution around the API? Oh and on a lighter note...this tweet from Phil may have given something away....
  7. We use Evernote Business for a few projects and we run into this exact issue. It's a bit clunky to have a discussion in the note itself. I would rather see something like comments on notes as a premium or business function. There are 3rd party apps like Basecamp, Asana and Slack that offer this kind of discussion, but lack a good integration of Evernote Business. Right now we use Google+ to discuss and collaborate on projects and use Business to share files and ideas. Not the best way of working....
  8. One part of your post got my attention: "However, this is a one off project that really only requires about an hour's worth of work, so it's hardly worthy of getting it's own tag"....wel...than what *is* worth tagging? Projects that take 1:15 hr? Projects that take 2 hrs worth of work? If it's a project, it means it takes more than one action to complete. If it's a one-action-thing, well than it's just one action and you just do it whenever the time and energy is appropriate. But for any other (series of) actions, I would say, tag it anyway. What's the worst that could happen? Tags without notes? You can easily eliminate those with this Applescript. So the thing is: You want to get rid of the paper? Scan it all in. Don't want to scan those one-offs? See the piece of paper as a temporary placeholder of the action assigned with it. Capture that in Evernote or your taskmanager of choice and throw the paper out. Does the paper have any information you *might* want to use later on, is it reference material for a case on a future moment? Scan it and tag accordingly as reference material. Good luck!
