  1. Here is an article I wrote about my workflow as a CIO, which is heavy in Evernote. https://educationaltechnologyguy.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-workflow-as-cio-includes-heavy-use.html
  2. We have numbering and bullets. It would be way cool to be able to collapse, expand, and move around branches of information a la an outline.
  3. I wish there was a calendar/planner type of system that I could link my to do lists to a specific day and possibly even move them from one day to another. It would be great to incorporate a timer and even alarm clock into the system. To be able to set an alarm for a specific day and time in advance that appears in your evernote calendar would be so cool. And the ability to have a link to a note in your calendar so as you are planning your day and need to pack, you click in your planner and it takes you to your packing list note. Also, could we have a little color? Who couldn't use a little color coding organization in their life?
  4. Hello, I am attempting to use Evernote to organize my files and need some help. I am a pastor attempting to catalog and organize my past and future sermons. They are written documents and what I would like to do is highlight quotes, stories, statistics, etc. tag them appropriately, and have them automatically added to a master file of quotes. Is there anyway to tag and organize portions of a document without simply copying and pasting over and over? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks,
  5. The Benefit of Using Tags Over the last year or so there has been a lot of discussion about the benefit of using Tags in Evernote. Some users have completely quit using Tags, claiming they see no benefit. While I have given a number of examples before, a real world example just occured with me, that I would like to share with all of you. The Earnings Report for CalAmp, symbol CAMP, came out today, so I wanted to see what I had researched previously and saved in Evernote. So, I just did a quick search of "intitle:camp", thinking that should be good. But, to my surprise, I had a number of false positives. The Search returned Notes about "Boot Camp", a Mac system software, as well as Notes about camping. But when I did a search using Tags, "tag:sym.camp", I got perfect results. I had decided long ago to tag all of my Notes about the stock "CAMP" with one from my Evernote Stock Symbol list, which is Tags that all begin with "SYM." So, all I have to do is click on the Tag filter, start typing "sym." and I'm presented with my "Stock Symbol list". As I further type, adding a "ca" then Evernote autocompletes my entry to "SYM.CAMP". I hit ENTER, and I'm DONE. I now have a very accurate Search results, very easy to search for, and very easy to apply tags to the appropriate Notes. Well, this was a long story to provide you with a real-world example that literally takes seconds to use, and avoid false positives!
  6. It would be very nice to show notebook next to the note's title (with the respective "View option"), for example as "My notebook | 30/03/2017 | 1 KB". What do you think about it?
  7. Ok, So I am new to evernote and I was searching around for ideas of how to structure my evernote. I wanted to share wihte other new people and receive comments / feedback of how others use. My goal for evernote is mainly to have a core location for my important files such as taxes and other files I store in google drive Examples of using organization in Evernote (Attached is a diagram of how I have my evernote notebacks and stacks set up example, organize by year. The bellow structure is - Stack -- notebook -- Tags _INBOX (Default Notebook) -- All emails and scanned files go here, tag as need then move to appropriate notebook _My-Files (notebook) -- All files with Tags go here if they don't go underneath financial management Notebook Stack -- (Stack) -- Collection of notebooks for taking notes IT Notes (Notebook) -- Random IT notes work related or home go here John Notebook (notebook) -- Where random notes about things will go Work Related (Stack) -- All work related Notebooks and files go here My Work Locations Wife Work Locations zFinancial Management -- Stack ( I start the stack with a "z" because I want the stack at the bottom of all the other stacks Taxes (notebook) -- W2, 1099, 1095, etc... actual tax documents saved in this notebook Expenses (notebook) -- everything below are tags - Anything with the below tag will likely be saved in Expenses Notebook YYYY --- Will tag with the year plus some of the below Receipts Utility bills Medical Receipt Loans Bank Statements Credit Cards Budget Checks Tax Deduction ** NOTE ** Because tags above exist underneath notebooks this is just an example of showing where files would moved if one of those tags are added to it TAGS <<-- What I have so far 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Airlines Wife Backup <<-- I tag attachments with one of these tags letting me know I have the actually attachment backed up online some where such as Gdrive G-Drive G-mail Dropbox ME (my name goes here) Confirmation Number House Items Electronics Invoice-Receipts House A Expenses House B Expenses Kids Johnny Jane June Ginger Organization Notes Photos Receipts Medical Receipt Resumes Taxes Tax Deduction Travel Houses << -- Past houses we have lived in House 1 House 2 House 3 Utility Bills Websites Naming Scheme << -- Still in work Generic YYYY-MM-DD-category-company Documents tied to a person YYYY-MM-DD-Person-File_purpose/category Receipts YYYY-MM-DD-Vendorpurchasedfrom-Item TAGS Search for Notes missing tags -tag:tagname <<< this will show you all files that DONT have that tag name I am about to integrate filethis.com into the above structure but I haven't yet
  8. I have some notebooks that I'm going to export because I no longer need them anymore. I'd like to be able to access them online. I have a VPS hosting account on GoDaddy. I know how to install WordPress on my directory but I don't know how HTML websites work for this case. Do you think that exporting some of my notebooks as HTML and upload it on one of my directories would let me see it online? I understand that i would need to create a domain/subdomain, and all that.
  9. Using Evernote Web. Want to make a template table and then insert it repeatedly into various individual notes. I found the tutorial on making and using templates. Good. However, all of the tutorials and how-to's say that when I click on the Grid icon for a table, I'm supposed to see a menu option for Table Properties. I'm not seeing that either with a left or right click. I get only a drop down visual that lets me select a few choices of rows and columns (not many) and no ability to adjust the width of the columns. What am I missing? Thank you.
  10. Currently We can do the following only. binder notebook note I would like to do the following Binder Folder "NEW" Notebook Note There has been to many times where I need 1 more layer of organization. here is a good example.

  12. Is there a workaround to getting a tag list? Is using SQL on a copy of the .exb file possible? I've noticed a number of posts on the forum about obtaining a tag list. They seem to dwell on 1) you cannot export or print a tag list in EN and/or 2) it would be a nice feature to have and will you please make it immediately or yesterday. It appears that none of these posts has yielded a definitive answer about a workaround. I have about 3,000 tags. That number is rapidly growing. I access EN two ways: EN for Windows and online in Chrome. I curate the tags in a hierarchy. I am aware that the prevailing consensus seems to be that tags are a superior way to organize one's EN content than notebooks, at least beyond some threshold volume of notes. But it has become tough to organize tags. My tags and their hierarchy are in continual flux as I add notes. I have about 35,000 notes. I continue to add tags and to delete and rearrange them. I am experimenting with the use of "special characters," ie., punctuation characters, to establish various categories. By "curation" I mean inspecting how the tags are organized (naming conventions and hierarchical arrangement) to be sure there is internal consistency. Part of the difficulty in doing so is that: a) there are so many; I can only see a small subset of them at a time; c) lacking an overview, I tend to have several curation and re-organization efforts going on concurrently and/or only partially implemented. d) these curation and re-organization efforts can be in conflict. The whole effort has become analogous to examining an entire landscape sequentially by examining parts of it through the narrow aperture of a drinking straw. But examining things sequentially can never replace simultaneous examination. I want to see all the tags. I need an overview, and to see their hierarchical organization at a glance. I am aware that there is no feature in EN to either print or export tags. Can I extract the tags using SQL? Doing so would not change the actual working file. I could use a copy of my .exb file (Windows platform), perhaps renaming it to a .db, and obtain from that renamed file a list of all of my tags. I recognize it is not good to go into the original backend database file with SQL tools. I would never touch that. It would be helpful to get even just a tag list, regardless of the hierarchical level of each tag. Getting the tags in their hierarchy would be good, though it's not strictly necessary. If you believe that it is infeasible to access the tags in a read-only manner via SQL, please let me know if you are aware of some other option. For example, alternately, is there some third-party software, perhaps analogous to VB for Office, or some macro-like utility of some kind, that would enable me to copy the tags successively, whether from within EN for Windows or EN in my browser, and paste them into MS Word? I am confident that it will be infinitely easier to manage them, once I have them in a word-processing document. I will be able to see the tags and their hierarchical position all at once rapidly, to grok relationships among them, disparities; similar, duplicative labels, etc. Changes to them in a Word doc can then be easily made in the original EN file. I would welcome any suggestions. That said, I do not imagine it would be helpful to question, why do you have so many tags? If you are thinking in those terms, please realize that you may be using EN for entirely different purposes and/or not have as much content. I have about 35,000 notes. Consider that the interrelationships among notes increase enormously as you add new topical areas. I want to track these with the tagging system. Nor do I imagine it would be helpful to ask, how can you use so many notes? Consider that, for the value that I wish to create, I do not need to use them all. Nor is it possible at the moment that I clip them to determine either exactly how I might use them or the likelihood that I will do so. Please realize that the process of capture with EN is often done intuitively, rather than with extensive planning aforethought. In that respect, EN is (or should be) not only a way of managing information. It is also (or should be) a way of managing how to allocate one's limited attention. Likewise, scrolling through a very lengthy tag list in EN for Windows does not support human cognitive strengths and inherent limitations.
  13. First of all, sorry for my grammatical mistakes. In my opinion ,one thing will make a big difference on experience of evernote users: it is the insertion of a calendar. A type of calendar that when you insert a new note and especificate a time,See it weekly or monthly calendar your note,to remember you that you have a important appointment for that day. I think this idea will make a great impact on users,because it will create a dynamic and comfortable environment on program.
  14. I have just purchased a new computer, and would like to move my Private Notebooks (not stored in the cloud, only on my hard drive) from the old computer to the new one. How do I do that? Also, is there a way to turn a Private Notebook into a Regular Notebook that DOES sync to the cloud? I use Evernote Premium. The old computer is Windows 8.1 with latest Evernote updates, and the new computer is Windows 10.1. Thanks. -Steve
  15. I'm a premium member because I use Evernote as an individual. One of the great concepts that's featured on the business model, is the ability to separate "Business" Notebooks & "Personal" Notebooks. I think it would be very effective to provide a similar feature to the Premium model, where users can separate notebooks per two or three main categories or "filing cabinets". For example many of my notebooks and notebook stacks are created for various clients, per my sales job. On the other hand, various notebooks and stacks are created per my real estate investments. Lastly, I have a group of notebooks that a all geared toward my hobbies and personal development. All of my notebooks and stacks, whether they're a subject dealing with sales, investments, or personal hobbies, are all grouped in alphabetical order in the left window column under one heading "Notebooks." It would be very effective to have an option to separate major categories of notebooks under separate headings or tabs; similar to what I would do if I were filing all of my notes in filing cabinets. I'd have one filing cabinet for my sales notebooks, another for my investment notebooks, and a third for my miscellaneous notebooks. I'm hoping this is possible to develop as I think it would help add another layer to my organization and also a feature to the premium model service.
  16. Hello, all! I just wanted to create this thread so that I can keep track of all the organizational changes I've made in Evernote. Hopefully, this will inspire others or have other people help in creating better techniques! Anyways, I'll begin. How Notebooks are Organized My mind works like a web like this. Everything is linked together. I created a whole bunch of stacks and added notebooks. Each notebook also has the name of the stack, dash, the topic of the notebook. It makes it easy for me to find what I need. ------------------------------------------------- Update Links: Tags Tags & Notes
  17. (first post!) Over the years, my children have made hundreds and hundreds of drawings for my wife and I. We always treasure them, but, have found it very difficult to keep track of them. Eventually, they pile up on the desk, get stuffed in a drawer, or lost and thrown away. Not anymore! I now scan them into Evernote for permanent keeping! As the day, or week comes to a close, I take any drawings my children have made, scan them into Evernote, tag them or file them into the appropriate folder, and then I can put it in a box, or even throw it away if I need to. When they're older, they'll thank me for it. I wish I could see drawings I made when I was young.
  18. I'm making this thread to work out my 'project' of building Evernote that is most efficient to me. Hoping this might be some help to other beginners who have run in to similar blockades of not able to organize your notes which hinders productivity. I've attached a screen of my current Evernote schema where I've setup a hierarchical tag structure that I worked through in a previous thread. Now this structure worked for while and I had high hopes for it but after a while i started finding it difficult on finding this that needed attention now. This caused me to revisit square one.
  19. Disclaimer: this idea only applies to Evernote for Mac, but I'm sure it can be easily duplicated across platforms. I'm a part-liberal arts student at UT, and I love discovering new words. For years, I've struggled with the best way to look up and remember words I come across in the various books and articles I read. Ever since I got a Mac a few years back, I have been using the dictionary app almost 24/7! I love how trustworthy, well-designed, and ad-free it is. With its Wikipedia integration, it's my one-stop shop for any definitions. Recently, I've come to incorporate Evernote as a great way of saving the words I come across. Here's what I do: 1. Look up a word in Dictionary App 2. Use icon in menu bar to "Clip Rectangle or Window to Evernote" 3. Select the definition 4. Add word as the title And, voilà! My very own Evernote Dictionary, beautifully organized and designed: What's even better is that even when you clip articles from the web, you can right-click on a word --> Look up in Dictionary right from your Evernote. Oh, the sweet smell of progress And as always, I'm open to suggestions. Are any of you all doing something similar? Have you found an even better way to clip/organize words?
  20. Is there a way I tag a note and have another tag automatically pinned to the note? For example, If I tag a note "German Shepherd" can I set evernote to automatically tag "canine" to the note? If A then B (of course, not necessarily If B then A). Thanks
  21. Hi, I'm picking up EverNote very quickly but have come unstuck in the end. The issue I have run into is the limitations of only being able to use ANY or AND logic but NOT a mix of the two (AND/OR). This is causing me problems such as being forced to use ANY logic which is pulling in unrelated notes from the ENTIRE database. An example of this occurring is when I search in all notebooks for: intitle:"_Glossary" any: tag:"fld-Information Science" tag:"fld-Statistics" tag:"fld-Programming" tag:"needs info" You can see that the intuitive goal is to see all my glossary notes that "need info" within the specified fields, however I will literally get every note in the ENTIRE evernote database tagged with all the "field names" or "needs info" tag. TLDR: I really require, in all-notebooks: ( intitle:this AND tag:that ) with tags x OR y OR z Does anyone have any advice, thoughts, workarounds? It's a shame because I designed my entire structure before recognizing the lack of search logic...woops!
  22. Here with yet more complicated workarounds. Last time I presented my authotkey script which I should really organize and update since some things have changed, but for now I "discovered" something way more important in my opinion. Now for the longest time I've really wished we had inline tagging workflowy style or at least the ability to more easily search for tags Calibre style (if you've never used calibre you can exclude a tag by clicking twice, three deselects) and link to tags. But alas we don't.... so like always... I looked for a workaround. Now I've know for a while you can use the _ as a character in search and this is the main workaround to inline tags. Nothing really knew there. I've thought of changing over to that system but I find it easy to miss and the underscore just does not say "tag" to my brain so I never truly tried it (I was so missing out). So I got around to brainstorming and I was interested in making fonts a while back so I knew I could make any letter be anything I wanted so I thought why not turn the _ into a #. This is probably the hardest part and you don't really need to do it if the _ doesn't bother you, but by doing so I realized just what I was missing out on. Skip the next paragraph/s for more on that if you're not interested in a font change. If you do know how to make a font (really you just need to know is enough about whatever font program you choose to copy/paste a character, export and install, nothing that complicated) and want to make a custom hashtag font it's pretty easy to make EN use it. Just changing the font in the prefs won't work for the whole UI. The trick is to go into Window's advanced theme settings to change the font throughout the computer. Of course now anywhere the default font is used you'll see a # instead of an underscore. I'm thinking of making it into the shape of a tag or a backwards # because now they're impossible to distinguish, not that I really need to, but I just might need to in windows explorer while changing file names and stuff like that.That's really the only minor inconvenience. But the visual problem can be solved if that bothers you like it did me. Oh and be sure to reboot otherwise EN won't register the change. Problem 2 whether you do the font change or not, I'm used to hitting shift 3 to get a pound symbol. So here came authotkey to the rescue again. ^3::Send, _ solved that perfectly. I set it with a #IfWinActive to evernote's ahk class so it wouldn't do it anywhere else and it works perfectly. So now I've got nice visually proper inline tagging, but even if you don't want to go out and do all that just switching to using an underscore opens up so many doors. Inline tagging of course, but even better it makes searching so so so much easier. Instead of a search looking like: all: tag:#included tag:"#included tag"-tag:#excluded which was just a pain to type out or the alternative which I used to do, selecting all the tags, going to the search explanation, copying, pasting then adding the dash to exclude certain tags, now I just type the following: #included "#included tag" -#excluded which autohotkey converts to _included "_included tag" -_excluded which with the font change reconverts again to looking like: #included "#included tag" -#excluded. Much much simpler and it can catch "inline tags" as well as regular tags. The only thing this doesn't work for unfortunately is for finding tags in scanned/handwritten documents. Also there's only really one type of tag. No other symbols work. But you could use multiple hashtags instead like ##tag. The number of underscores could indicate the level of importance or other stuff like that. Using a space also works. So # # could mean a to do (you would have to search for it with quotations though). Basically it allows even more creativity I think. Now the inline tags might sound kind of pointless to some people, after all isn't the beauty of it to be able to select tags from the sidebar. Well yes, but for some of us there's just some notes we'd only like to pop up when searching for the tag. Like it might only be mildly related, or it might be a single thing inside a note that is related to that tag. But regardless, I encourage you to try it just for tags just for the fact that it makes searching sooooo much simpler. Typing tag: over and over again and remembering the colon and the placement of the quotation marks was just too much. This way it makes way more sense. It's like a simple google search. I don't have to bother about selecting anything. I think if I trim my tags down enough I might just get rid of the sidebar altogether. I could also potentially get autohotkey to type notebook: when I need to single out a notebook in a search (is it just me or was there a time when if you were in a notebook and you went to search it only searched in that one? maybe I'm just dreaming, but I really wish it'd do that). Anyways hope someone finds some of this helpful and it shows just how useful such a feature could be.
  23. Hi Evernote Team and all dear fellow Users! Let me introduce the latest new Evernote feature: Workspaces! In a nutshell: There would be separate windows/tabs in which we could customise the layout of the Evernote window. The idea: When I work on my professional notes, I do not need any other, non-related stuff. Just like online, with the 'focus' mode, I think you called it. The main reason behind it is the shortcuts. I would need much more shortcuts to be visible on the top bar to be as effective as possible. I would need some selected group notebooks and tags for each workflow. I am not a program designer, I have no idea how this would be possible. Still, I had an idea and I wanted to share it. Please see the attachments to get a better idea.
  24. Need the ability to NEST notes and notebooks; started abandoning Everynote as a result. Been using Evernote for a few years. Now using it heavily and tags aren't cutting it and wastes more time trying to organize and manage tags and stacks. Please do not respond explaining the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks. Keep the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks ~ just not at the expense of the nested hierarchy. No links to related articles, tutorials, demos, blogs on how to use tags and how to organize. ---- Keep the tags, but please allow nesting. Notebook and stacks, tags...aren't getting the job done. One can say it is mindset, need to change the mindset and adjust to a new way of organization. Spent obscene amount of time over the last 2 years trying to use and adjust to tags; reading blogs, best practices, research etc..even looking for 3rd party add ons, iOS apps etc. The more content added, the more content that gets lost... the larger volume of data the harder it is to find... must rely on memory for search terms, tags etc. Nesting allows an easy way to browse and find content. Also, you can train a group of people to work within hierarchy, but not tags.
  25. So if I was going to track an item that was categorized by both a set and an ID number what would be the best tagging system involved? Keep in mind that the same ID number can be used ONCE per set. So you could have an item with an ID of 03 but only once in a set... like in my example below. Example: Item ABC > Set 02 > ID 03 Item AFD > Set 05 > ID 09 Item DJR > Set 10 > ID 03 I'm currently tagging them with a tag like sot "ID 009" and "ID 010" and so on... but that doesn't "FEEL" right...
