  1. I live in Evernote. I use The Secret Weapon methodology to stay on top of my stuff. This brilliant methodology requires some setup. If you look at how people start to use Evernote, they rarely get it from the first time. Usually, they start, put something into it, then leave it. Then come back and suddenly they "get it" and are addicted. I think the major obstacle for new users to get onbard instantly is the flexibility too vague case studies. Evernote's blog is full of "people kiiling it with Evernote" but there is very little actionable advice in it. Recent Michael Hyatt's set up can be useful but that's an exception. What I could save my set up of notebooks, tags and saved searches and share it? Think Google Analytics Custom Segments or Custom Reports. Just the canvas are shared, without data. That way, I could easily set up Evernote for my colleagues or my wife who do not want to invest their time. I think this could be an eye-opener and a an excellent growth tool for Evernote and a huge improvement for users. Who would not like all their friends to use Evernote?
  2. Hello, I am very new to evernote. I have had few mobiles which gave me a years subscription but never tried.. Planning to give this tool a try.. I have few basic requirements, can evernote do this ? 1. I want to create reminders for things.. Example: a. Pickup kid from school @ 4:00 PM from Monday to Friday.. (I need a reminder on my mobile via a ringtone. at 3:55 PM) b. Goto Gym on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. (I need a reminder on my mobile via a ringtone/sound at 6:30 PM) 2. Create tasks + reminders Example: a. Go out for picnic on every Sunday. (need a reminder for this on Saturday evening around 8 PM and again a reminder on Sunday around 10 PM via ringtone on my mobile and via desktop app on Windows). 3. Create tasks a. To be able to create tasks and assign them various priorities. 4. Create Notes - text based and voice based. Set priorities for same and assign to my colleagues. My Prime requirement is an advanced task manager (which also supports reminders/alarms), and a Note Manager (with text and voice support). I am able to do same with my Note 3 mobile but various other applications.. Looking to integrate everything into 1, with web + desktop + mobile integration in 1 place. Please help with this few basics, as I am unable to understand how to use this software. Looking forward to explore more for few days. If I am happy, I will look forward for a business edition (including my senior team members).. with some advanced work we have. Regards,
  3. OK, this question is directed to normal, consumer-oriented users. I know well that business users tend to use Evernote more for their project sharing and stuffs. Seriously, I have downloaded Evernote for more than a year and couldn't even get past the 2MB/month mark despite using it almost everyday. I'm so confused at how could anyone be in need of even more data than that in...a month. I don't even feel normal anymore. It was even less than a MB before I started using the web clipper. After discovering its great potential, I began to store grammatical notes as I'm studying languages right now, to cite sources for research papers. But, that's it... nothing else really comes to mind as I use Pocket for saving articles since it has Dark mode in android and feels more convenient than Evernote in that matter(offline mode and etc.). Also, I use Asparagus(android app) to store recipes since it has a more organized UI and could organizes them in an easier way. As for calendar events, there's plenty of third-party apps on android that can sync with Google Calendar which keeps me better organized. Google Keep has a better widget since Evernote's widget with its annoying announcement trumpet that can't stop protuding your screen. I also can't get over the fact that Evernote's List widget isn't transparent and doesn't have a black background. Also, you can't remove the top banner which wastes 1xhorizontal column of space. What's the point of not being able to customize the widget? //end of rant for not being able to use Evernote for lifestyle related notes. Don't get me wrong, I love Evernote. I use it all the time for anything assignment-related or proses-related. But that's all. It seems as if there is always a better app if I want a more specialized field, Evernote just felt too... writing-centric for me. I used to copy a 200 pages long webnovel I found online and tried to paste it onto Evernote, and only found that it was lagging so much that it wasn't suitable to be used to store large file texts. So honestly, I abandoned that idea of using Evernote for large chunks of text. Even though I'm sketching up lots of writings and ideas, it's still not surpassing 2MB/month. Yeah, other than diaries, essays, studying notes, and writing short stories. I can't find any other uses for Evernote other than you know, /writing/. All that being said, I don't even know if I can write 60MB of text in a month, it just seems so... unfeasible.
  4. So I'm looking for a way I can keep track of all the tasks I need to accomplish and thought maybe Evernote could help. It seems I have a couple options. 1) I can make one Notebook called Tasks (or whatever) and then just have one Note called Task List. I could then just list out all the tasks with checkboxes and check them off when I'm done. If I wanted to keep the old ones so I could refer back to them I'd eventually end up with a huge list but could see what I had done, what was next to do, etc. 2) I can make one Notebook called Tasks and then create a separate Note for each Task. I would then probably have to make a second Notebook called Completed Tasks (or something like that) and then I'd have to move them from one notebook to the other when it was done. (or maybe I could just use a "completed" tag when they were done. hmm) I'm just wondering how most people use this and what you've found works better or worse than other solutions. Thanks for any input.
  5. When I first started using Evernote I immersed myself in tutorials. One, which dealt with tagging, advised a system that used double tags, one for the general, one the specific but both included in the tag name. Example, Recipe:cauliflower would be one tag. I cannot for the life of me figure out where I got this information (remember I had just started using Evernote and wasn't using its full potential) but it was very persuasive and so , does anyone know, or can steer me towards tag organization ideas? Thanks,
  6. First off, thanks in advance for reading. So apparently I have been living under a rock. Only TODAY did I find out I can have as many sub-notes as I want, with infinite sub-levels, by using Tags, a opposed to Notebooks. Ok, so I am going to convert everything over to a Tag-system. Before I do that, i have some questions: 1) How do i get the right "pane-view" in tags to mimic the pane of notebooks? More specifically, when I click on a notebook, In the right window I get to see all the information pertaining to that Notebook, in columns. This includes listing all the "sub-notebooks" in the stack, the titles of individual notes, the dates they were created, etc. When I try to duplicate the system utilizing TAGS, I dont see anything in the right window, other than the tag names. 2) Similar to the above, when using notebooks and in the left column, if I click on a stack and it shows me all the sub-notebooks, there is a number next to each signifying how many notes are in each tag. It doesnt appear that i can get this using the TAG system either? 3) Again, along the same line of questions above, is there a way to bottom-reading-pane for individual tags, which you can see when viewing notes in a notebook? Granted I think I might be very confused here because im not sure I know how to add a note to a tag... Thank you for assisting this lost Evernote user! Much appreciated....
  7. With my daily usage in Evernote, I need notes to be in order of the header or subject name I get it and not organized by the last edit showing up first. For example, I may have a notebook with 500 notes. Each note is organized by a number. Not this way but simply put, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and so on. So when I open up a notebook it will display in order regardless of when I made an edit. Is there a way to do this? I really hope so. I know in notebooks it can be organized that way but how bout notes? Thanks for the help!
  8. I am a long-time premium user and let me just say from the outset that Evernote is an extremely useful program for storing all kinds of data and planning your life. That said, while there are some things at which there is nothing better, there are other things that other apps and programs (Google Calendar, cloud storage, etc) do better. I'm trying to identify which ones as I try to reorganize and optimize my workflow for the coming year. I will lay out my current thinking below - please argue against (or for!) them. Basic Life Organization Task Planning - The GTD/Secret Weapon system is a brilliant productivity concept and performs very well with Evernote. Calendar - Despite the introduction of reminders, the inexplicable lack of custom note sorting means that something like Google Calendar is still by far the better option for keeping track of specific events. Unless I'm missing something. Diary - Evernote is completely suitable for this. Projects - E.g., writing a book, creating a website, learning a new skill. I have a rather intricate but more or less effective system that works with Evernote. Don't see a major need for change. Storage Documents - Evernote very good for this (paperless, etc). Just create a separate notebook for it and organize via tags. Contacts - In principle good, but very time-consuming to input all the relevant data. But can in principle be very powerful in conjunction with the GTD/Secret Weapon system. It would be awesome if there was an app that allowed you to sync your Google, Facebook, and phone contacts and dump them all into a dedicated Notebook. What I currently do is keep a "profile note" on my ~two dozen most important contacts. (Evernote Hello doesn't quite fulfill these conditions and is bugridden to boot). Book Excerpts - Evernote is great for that. 1) Read e-book; 2) Do highlights; 3) Copy highlights; 4) Transfer to note in relevant notebook; 5) tag, label, etc as appropraite. Articles - Useful/interesting articles that I find on the web. Advantage - Makes them easily searchable, can build up a formidable database of research on the subjects that interest you. Downside - Will eventually come to take up a lot of space and become unwieldy. Also I have some issues with the way Evernote Clipper works (the resulting font of clipped articles is uncomfortable small). I am debating whether to continue using Evernote Clipper --> dedicated Articles notebook on my Evernote, or start converting interesting articles I find on the web into PDFs and keeping them in cloud storage like OneDrive, organized by thematic folders. So far I am leaning towards sticking with Evernote for this. Studies/PDFs - My current project involves having to familiarize myself with and keep track of a substantial number of scientific studies. I have most of them as PDFs and they are thematically organized in a folder on OneDrive. Do I keep them there, or should I make the effort to transfer them over to a dedicated "Studies" notebook on Evernote? Plus side: Evernote has better search capabilities, easy to transfer PDFs straight from the Internet via the web clipper; and, best of all, you can take notes on those studies right from within the note to which the relevant PDFs are attached to. Negative side: These studies occupy a fair bit of space (2GB and counting) and transferring them will take up a fair bit of time and be very dull. For the referencing side of things, the best tool I've found is Zotero. Websites - Presumably, bookmarks. Though I find Chrome's bookmarks to be somewhat buggy (changes don't immediately register and sometimes revert) and not very convenient to use. Is there anything better? Videos (from YouTube, Liveleak, etc) - Downloading them and hosting them on Evernote or cloud storage is of course unrealistic except for a very few exceptions. Again, bookmarks? But problem with bookmarks is that they are quite primitive, with no embedded way to assign tags, ratings, etc. E-Books, Music, Pictures - Far too big to effectively store in Evernote; it's not what it is designed for, after all. Conventional storage on hard drive, I assume...? My Photos - This is a puzzle. It's easy and very convenient to do with cloud storage nowadays because camera phones can automatically sync with OneDrive, Google Drive, etc. On the other hand, they consequently require a fair bit of custom organization (by date, event, etc) to avoid becoming an undecipherable mishmash. I suspect the cloud storage solution is best, but select photos can be exported and used to illustrate the Diary. "Portfolio" - A comprehensive collection of all the work you yourself have done so that it is all on hand in one convenient place (e.g. articles, books/book chapters, video appearances, programs, musical compositions, podcasts, blog posts, artistic pieces, etc). What's better for this - a folder on cloud storage, or a notebook in Evernote? I am leaning towards cloud storage. Anyhow, please feel free to chime in with your own solutions to these various organizational issues. I am generally interested in finding out how other people do things. PS. As you might guess from the above, I suffer from a bit of a compulsive-obsessive disorder when it comes to organization. I recognize that some people effectively just organize more or less on the fly, in an ad hoc manner. That's fine, of course. But I want to figure out a comprehensive/optimal system in terms of ease (it should be natural to operate, not be a chore), accessibility (can be accessed across multiple devices with access to the Internet), and security (of said data). This is what this post is about.
  9. I am fairly new to Evernote and I have watched videos on HOW TO use Evernote and it have seen what appears to be subfolders/notebooks. I have tried to make a subfolder of a Notebook but Evernote just makes a new Notebook and not a sub Notebook/folder. If I want to have a main folder such as Home Repairs then have subfolders say expenses, labor, etc. How do I make one of these sub folders of the main folder?
  10. I'm always trying to find ways to make my Evernote organization better. I have about a dozen main notebooks and a lot of stacks. I've also taken to naming conventions to keep things organized (i.e. "Patterns," "Techniques" and "General") but I'm not loving that format (things are still tricky to find!) and I think there has to be better ways. What are ways you have found to keep track of your life—especially your crafty life—in Evernote? How do you use tags, notebooks, stacks, titles and/or body copy to find easily keep and find what you need at your fingertips?
  11. Hye all Evernote community members I'd like to get your advice. I use evernote for two main uses : Getting Things Done, and to take notes about books or articles i study, in order to remenber things better in the future (i only have to read the note again and not the complete article) I'd like to separate these two things (a "to do" part and "resume" part), or to have only my "Things to do" taken into account. What would you suggest me to do ? Best regards
  12. I would like to keep track of my exercise programs, DVDS that I do on a daily basis, I'd like to track how I feel, what I felt needs improvement, moods Then I would like to see them in a month's view to see which DVDs I used the most and how I felt using it. any way to do something like this?
  13. Please can someone help me? I want to make sub-folders within each note book - a similar hierarchy to that which I have in My Documents or Outlook, how can I do this?
  14. Hi everyone, I am wondering whether anyone can advise on the suitability of using evernote to archive .pdf documents. I am aware that the Evernote user is limited to 250 notebooks, and given that we can work with this limitation (using tags effectively), I have a few additional questions is there a limit to the number of notes in any given notebook?is there a limit to the size of a note? Could it, for example, manage a .pdf document of 200 pages?how would the organisation (in this case a church denomination) ensure that original files remain intact? Is this just managed in the sharing permissions?I am assuming the search .pdf function would work over a file of considerable size - would there be any speed issues?some of the older documents are typewritten, and reproduced by Gestetner type equipment. Files seem to be searchable enough on my Mac, unsure whether this would be eroded in the web interfacesome documents will be handwritten - I guess we just have to live with thatthe overall file, once completed, might be in the order of 30,000 pages - does Evernote have the capacity to manage this?am I right to assume there is only two levels in a stack, the 'Notebook Stack' (which contains no independent notes) and all the sub-notebooks, which contain the notes. i.e.. you cannot have stacks within stacks... Any other insights or examples of how Evernote has been used in this manner would really be helpful... Thanks for your time. Dave Groenenboom, Perth, WA
  15. Hi. I am using Evernote to record insights that arise during Bible study. Ideally, i would have a notebook called "Bible". Then, I would create a note for each book of the Bible. I would use those notes to record thoughts on individual verses for example if I had something on John 3:16 I would open the John note, type 3:16 and record the thought. At this point I need some way to reference this specific section in the note with a tag (or something like that) with "Love". This would allow me to search across my "Bible" notebook for "Love" aand retrieve the verses I have notes on for this subject. If anyone has advice I would appreciate any help!
  16. Hi, I use Evernote for everything. Work notes, household notes, hobbies, projects, interesting articles, -You name it. I believe in tagging notes, I see the benifit, but my tagging structure is a complete disaster. I have read several articles on organizing tags but I still dont have a clue as to the best way to use them. How detailed do I get? Do I do things like make a separate tag for each manufacturer mentioned in a note, for example? And if so, do I also use another general tag such as "Product?" I have instruction manuals of all kinds stored in an "InstructionManuals" notebook in this example. I have been working on organizing my notes all weekend with the future hope of getting rid of several notebooks and going more tag oriented. I have many more examples such as this but I dont know how deep to go with this. I know I am way over-thinking this, but dont know what to do. I know that the ultimate goal here is to be able to find what Im looking for, but it seems like consistency would be good too. Thank you for any help.
  17. Hey everyone, I don't know how many people are already aware of this because I've just now found this forum, but I'm having a small issue with the bullets. I've noticed that I can't shift tab a bullet back more than the third tab or the bullet disappears and I have to click the bullet tab 5 or 6 times to get my bullet back. It's not a huge issue, but I'm sure Evernote could come up with some kind of update to fix it. Anyone else having this issue?
  18. Is there any way to make some notebooks sort their notes by title, and other notebooks to sort their notes by modified date? This is a huge need for so many reasons. For instance, I need my notebooks containing all my students' names to always sort alphabetically, but I need my teaching notes to always sort by modified date. Having to switch back and forth every time I access different notebooks is so annoying and such a waste of productivity. We would be really grateful to have this ability. I have taken the plunge and become an Evernote Premium user, but I was greatly disappointed that I could not find a way to accomplish this simple but vital sorting requirement. Maybe I'm just missing it... does anyone know how to achieve this on any Evernote platform -- Mac, iPhone or iPad?
  19. Hi, new to Evernote as of today. I'm a new manager with 6 directs under me. I'd like to understand the best way to organize to be able to have a file for each direct. Within that file (notebook?) I'd like to have a folder (sub-notebook?) with personal information on the direct, wife and kids names and ages, hobbies and interests, salary grade, birthday and anniversary, etc. I will also be conducting one-on-one interviews with each direct each week and would like to keep notes on each interview. Any advice would be very appreciated!
  20. hi *** can be close i find a way around this just write 1) 2) 3) near every word ***** i want to organize my notes like table of content to do summarize for book, but every time i make chapter and make in it sub-chapter the orders of the notes is alpha bat example one: the way i want. dogs[stack] --Rottweiler --doberman --Australian Shepherd --Belgian Malinois example two: evernote way dogs[stack] --Australian Shepherd --Belgian Malinois --doberman --Rottweiler there is option to make the order the way i want ? like in example 1
  21. I purchased a scanner last year but my bookkeeper said she did not think it would be useful to document purchases, travel, gas, meals etc for my very small business. Scanner sat in box until May 1 when I got my first IRS audit notice. Long and short is that I am still under audit and trying to make sense of the accumulation the receipts that I've been pouring through. Now I have 2 years of receipts which have gotten intermingled. I have tried to scan some but don't know if its too late to use the scanner and evernote organize the mess. Big question is will IRS accept scanned images for audit?
  22. Hello all! I was busy reading thru magazines the other night. Then it dawned on me that all those recipes I want to try don't need to be ripped out! So, I took out my phone, opened Evernote and added a photo note for each recipe. I put them all in a notebook I call "Recipes To Try". After I try them, (and if they are worth keeping) they are moved to the "Recipes" notebook. How do you manage recipes you'd like to try, or want to keep?
  23. I wondered if someone at Evernote, or group of end users/members, have a resource for using Evernote to help with those with ADHD. Using more of its capabilities to help make life a little better. It improves my life imensely, but I could see Evernote devoting some time to craft ways to improve the app even more.
  24. On the old board, there used to be several, extensive threads that showed how tags replicate nested folders. I don't think they got migrated to the new board. This is one thing many people new to Evernote have a problem with - the lack of sub folders. IMO (and apparently Evernote's), tags can replicate nested folders but are much more flexible. Tags replicate nested folders this way. I have two insurance policies. One is for car A & one is for Car B. On my hard drive, they may be stored like this: Cars --> Car A --> insurance policies --> Car A insurance policy repairs --> repair documents here license/tags --> license/tag info here Car B --> insurance policies --> Car B insurance policy repairs --> repair documents here license/tags --> license/tag info here Or maybe I store them this way so that all my insurance policies (home, life, auto, medical) are stored in the same folder: Insurance policies --> Cars --> Car A --> Car A insurance policy Car B --> Car B insurance policy Health -- > husband wife children Both of these situations can be replicated in Evernote by using these tags: insurance policies car A car B Car A insurance policy is tagged "insurance policies" and "car A". Searching on those two tags will give the same exact results as if I had the documents stored in sub folders on a hard drive. I don't even need to apply a "car" tag The reason tags are much more flexible than sub folders is because let's say the policy is for both cars. To use sub folders, I'd need to have two copies of the document - one in the Car A sub folder & one in the Car B sub folder. But with tags, I simply have the one document & use all three tags, "insurance policies", "car A" and "car B'. When I want to find the insurance policy for Car A, I still just search on ""insurance policies" and "car A".
  25. I am having difficulty figuing out if I can organize notebooks within a stack. I created stacks for each month and have the notebooks for each day. As I was entering days for July, EN put the notebook for 7/10/14 between the ones for 7/1/14 and 7/2/14. I've tried dragging that notebook after 7/9/14 to no avail. Is there anyway to move it so the dates are in consecutive order? ENScreenshot.bmp
