  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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".
  9. 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
  10. Nowadays we rely very much on apps for our organization and productivity. Often, our cyberlife include social media and social network. The possibility of Tools Integration is great, but at the risk of creating a clutter which will bring us back to a chaos. Evernote gives us a nice chance of reducing the number of apps envolved in our organization and productivity efforts. I'd like to know what You people are doing to cope with the need of being organized and productive without falling in a cybermess. Every insight and contribution to the discussion of this topic is wellcome. Thanks in advance, polycarpo
  11. Hi all, I've been lurking for a while and feel that it's finally time to come out of the darkness and introduce myself. I'm John, Married to Abby from Norwich in England. I stumbled across evernote a couple of years ago when Abby and I were planning our wedding. I'm an IT geek by trade so found this to be an awesome way of collating / collecting things for the Wedding in a space that was easily accessable. After we got married, I really left Evernote gathering cobwebs. I've just been laid up ill for about a month now and discovered it again as a very welcome distraction - it was either this or I'd start watching daytime TV - and if there is anyone from the UK here, you'll appreciate the desire to stay as far away from Jeremy Kyle reruns as possible So, that brings me up to speed with where I am now. I'm a bit lost to be honest. I've got myself in a bit of a mess and I don't really want to "play around" any more and mess things up further. I'm looking for some help, feedback and advice on my current notebook structure. (see attached image) What I'm trying to achieve is that nirvana of a single repository for everything home and work related. Is this achievable or too complex a task to manage if it was possible to implement? I make use of the email upload facility, although I've always struggled to get the notes to automatically go anywhere other than the default inbox, untagged and lonely! Also, I've recently discovered the web clipper, which is great, and the IFTTT website so have a couple of recipes running from that. Anyway, before I rattle on for way too long, thank you in advance for any helpful pointers anyone can give me! Regards John PS: Is there a "meet up" culture with evernote users? If so, is there an active UK group?
  12. I'm making increasing use of folders to organize my separate projects. Within these, however, I will constantly add clips from web, notes for bigger assignments within that project or source material. The result is that my most important working notes become lost in the list. My suggestion is for an option that allows a note title to be highlighted. I am thinking of how Mac folders work, with multiple colors. For now one color would be sufficient. Even if I make a note a favorite, it does not change the formatting of the title sufficiently in my list for quick identification or access. I didn't expect this to be such a challenge, but when working with source materials the note names start sharing certain words. They become subtle differences of each other and therefore very difficult to pull apart. Another option for solving this would be to add a field in the note list frame. In the same way you can add 'Sync Status' alongside 'Updated' and 'Title', you would be able to add 'Starred' or a 'High Priority'. This would allow for a quick re-ordering of the list between high-priority (working files), medium-priority (support fragments of writing) and low-priority (source material).
  13. My problem is more a philosopical one about data organization. My usual evernote is sorted in Last Updated order, because that tends to be what I'm currently working on. But I do run across stuff that I have to stuff into Evernote, and stuff gets updated, so there's a lot of irrelevant stuff in that list. I spends lots and lots of time trying to remember how I organized stuff in Evernote (i.e. I know that I made a bunch of notes which have url links on one introductory page, but what did I call the introductory page?) Everytime I add a new note, I try to remember how it fits into my life and I apply several tags. But I do not know absolutely that I have the right tags. The world is moving at a phenomenal rate and I have to just keep going. What would be really useful would be some routines that I could run automatically at the end of the day which would add tags to notes based on their content, then I would know that selecting tag x would really give me all the stuff that should be there. (i.e. I could create a long search which looked for stuff in the note but which didn't have the appropriate tag). Thanks for advice.
  14. I've been reading all the posts about best scanners that scan directly to Evernote (sounds like lots of people are fans of the ScanSnap by Fujitsu), and I'm leaning that way, but was wondering if there's another scanner out there that can accommodate unusual documents. I scan documents, receipts, photos like most people, but I also often get drawings my kids make. I keep some originals, but most I want to scan and toss. We just don't have a big enough house to store it all. Those are typically sized funny. I suppose a flatbed scanner would work, or maybe one of those camera contraptions. I am open to suggestions. (Oh, and I have a birthday coming up, so my family wants to get me a scanner and other goodies.) Thanks!
  15. Hi! I'm trying to figure out how to organize the notes in my notebook not by date. I prefer to have them organized by my discretion. How can I accomplish this? Thank you!
  16. Up until now I've been creating a notebook for each project, but I'm starting to think this is a bad idea. I have these notebooks with 3 or 4 notes and it doesn't seem like a good system to me. I only have a 100+ notes at this point, but I want to come up with a good system before I accumulate a large number of notes. I’m thinking about organizing my Evernote data by using tags and having Notebooks for areas of focus. These areas would mirror my structure in Omnifocus. I’ve read a lot about how to organize things in Evernote and it sounds like the best way to do it is not have a large number of notebooks and use tags to tie things together. So this is what I’m thinking for my Notebooks: PersonalFamilyFinancesSportsTravelReferenceWorkTeamSoftwareReference
  17. Sorry for the long post but I need help from gurus like y'all. I am shockingly organized at work - I am an IT Agile/Scrum Project Manager. I can manage the data, next steps, and resources for multiple different. But I cannot organize information on my own hobbies. It's sad, really. I usually have 10-20 interests that I bounce between (I am an ADD poster child). For example, over the course of 2013 I was interested in: Bible history researchAncinet historyContainer gardeningTips to write a novelAgile project methodologyMust read fictionProductivity tipsVacation spotsResearch to build a new PCI'd like to be able to capture data as I go (Evernote's strength). Then If I lose interest in a topic for a year I can come back and pick up where I left off. I'd envision some kind of to-do list for each interest so I can see what I wanted to do next in the area, notes, images, articles, etc. I use Evernote extensively and understand how to use tags, notebooks, sub-notebooks, and keyword search (I am a Premium sub so I can search anything). But I just cannot get an organization structure that works. I need the right combination of Notebook, tag, and note hierarchy and org to make it all click. Thanks for any tips or advice. We can call this "Even people with ADD can be organized with Evernote."
  18. I want to create, for want of a better term, a "Musical TODO List", and I'm unsure of how to structure it effectively. Basically, I want to write the names of artists (groups, bands, composers) that I know enough about to know that I want to listen to their music at some point in the future. It's an exercise in furthering my musical education, I guess. Evernote seems pretty well suited to this because I can quickly jot down an artist's name as I think about it and get back to work. However, the right combination of notebooks, notes and tags is eluding me. I'd really like to classify artists by genre, but the problem is that many artists fit into more than one genre. If I have a notebook called "Musical TODO", and under that I have some notes for example: Musical TODO 60'sBluesFolk70'sRock n RollRockabillyetc......then if a particular artist fits into more than one genre then I'll need to record their name in multiple notes...seems pretty clunky. And given that I can't tag a single line of a note (you can only tag the whole note), the only way I could see to do it with tags would be to have each artist with its own note, and apply whatever genre tags to that, which seems equally clunky. Anyone got any ideas how I could do this better with Evernote? cheers Ian
  19. In order to reach a high consistency level in tagging approach I used my tags in the following way. I have basic prefix for most of the tags e.g. source: webshot source: email source: screenshot source: ... site: amazon.com site: google.com site: .... type: bill type: confirmation type:registration .. .. .. For example I relieved email confirming my order at amazon.com so I would tag it as follow ---> "source: email" , "site: amazon.com" , "type: confirmation" This way the search became super easy by searching using the prefix. The most important thing you reach high consistency level in your tagging approach note: if you have extra tags (given that you cannot give them prefix because they are unique) you can type them at end keep in mind that this is consistency hole. This was a quick tip I hope it was helpful If you have enhancement to it please add it here.
  20. Hi All! I've been using EN for over a year and LOVE it! But, I would still consider myself a newbie and not using it to its full potential. I'm big into organizing my files....LOTS of folders and subfolders on my hard drive, so I can easily find anything I need. I also have a pretty good organizational system on EN. But here's my issue: Right now, I scan a document, say my son's medical lab results. I store that .pdf in a folder on my computer's hard drive. Then I attach it to a note in EN so that it is always with me. And, in my quest to now go paperless, I will be scanning additional important documents (like bills) and less important documents (like receipts). The quesion is do I continue to save to my computer and then also put into EN? Do I only have them in EN? I'm afraid to only have them in EN because it may not have the longevity of my local storage....then again, it may have more. And, can I pull them out of EN and save locally for the long haul, saving space in EN (e.g. 2014 receipts would get archived when I close out the 2014 year). I feel like I'm in a dizzy nightmare of where/how to organize all this stuff and I'm double/triple saving files which may or may not be necessary. I've searched the forum and have found a few notes on the same, but am looking for additional guidance from the EN geniuses out there! Thanks so much!
  21. An Evernote newbie here. I signed up for Evernote after seeing a demo video. This video left the impression that notes could be organized in an arbitrary hierarchy, and that was the feature that appealed to me. Thus upon signing up, I was surprised to learn that only a 3-deep hierarchy is permitted. Since then I have been casting around trying to see what experienced users use in place of hierarchy, and I'm not having much luck finding this out. Let me give an example of how I would use hierarchy if it was available. At the top level would be "my life", with nodes for each of several social aspects of my life, and nodes for each project I was working on. Take a project node for a book I'm working on. Within this would be nodes for things like "salient points", "chapter ideas", "other books", etc. Within "other books" would be nodes for each one of a number of relevant books, within each book node would be nodes for each chapter of the book, within each chapter would be notes summarizing the chapter, etc., etc. Even this simple example is deeper than Evernote permits, and it is easy to see the need for even deeper levels. So, how do experienced Evernote users represent "their whole life" (as many claim to do), with only 3 levels? What is used to substitute for the fact that our minds certainly divide our lives up into far more levels than that? Suggestions solicited. Thanks. --Milton--
  22. Awhile back I wrote this guest post over at www.yourway.net, it seemed to help a lot of people so I thought I would post it here as well. http://tech.yourway....age-your-chaos/. By the way if you need a little more guidance check out "A Mom's Guide to Evernote". Evernote is a fantastic tech tool that can help you get a grip on all the loose ends in your life. You simply install it on your computer and smartphone, and it will quickly develop into your digital file cabinet. Below, I have listed 7 examples of ways I use Evernote in my everyday life. Shot Records It is always at the most random and inconvenient times I get caught needing one of my kids shot records. With my records saved electronically their shot records are with me wherever I go. Babysitting File It seems that every time we have a babysitter planned that it is total chaos beforehand. Keeping a babysitting file on hand with the bedtime routine and emergency information makes it simple to get out the door. I just email over the info to the babysitter. This is especially handy in the event of an emergency. Vacation Planning Planning a vacation for a family is no simple task. Finding a place to stay, making travel plans and keeping track of the paperwork. Not to mention the work to get everyone out the door. I keep all my lists with everything we need to get packed in Evernote. It is so easy to share notes. I can send them over to my husband too. Honey Do List Family life is pretty busy, but it doesn’t stop those nagging tasks from needing to get done. Weekends in our house get pretty crammed. So, when there is time to get things accomplished, it is easiest to pull out my on-going “honey do” list. Always having this information it makes our trips to Lowes, Target and grocery store much more efficient. Home/Property Management Managing your home or multiple homes is a lot of work. However, there is massive amounts of time to be saved by tracking all your home information through a paperless system. You can put warranty info, appliance info, leases, paperwork, pictures, and repair contacts all in Evernote. This allows you to easily and promptly deal with any home situation that occurs. Kids’ Artwork I love all the awesome artwork and projects that my kids bring home from school, however, I can’t stand all the clutter of the paper. I save the absolute best of the best. The rest I snap a photo of, save in Evernote and throw it away guilt free. Kids’ Activities Schedules Keeping up with the back and forth of all the kids is exhausting. School schedules, sports information are all saved in Evernote. That way no matter where I am I can reference these events that we need to work around. If you would like to learn more information on getting up and running with Evernote and organizing everything within, check out my ebook, Evernote for Moms. It is a quick and easy read designed to get you started in one afternoon.
  23. I manage 30 buildings, I would like to keep notes for each building (repairs needed, requests from clients, things to discuss with clients or staff). I'm trying to figure out how to best set things up.Here are some possible scenarios I was thinking of using. 1. Tag notes with the building code, sort them with the GTD system, then archive them into a seperate notebook for each building. 2. Place notes directly into a separate notebook for each building. Does anyone have experience using evernote for to track issues in multiple locations, what method do you recommend? Thanks in advance!
  24. Hey Evernote! It would be really amazing to see a feature set or some integration with a tool like LayerVault. Please take a look at it if you haven't. https://layervault.com/ http://layervault.tumblr.com/ Check out the "Iterate" podcast # 61 wherein Allan Crinshtein is interviewed RE: LayerVault, the business and et al. Cheers, Mike
  25. I love Evernote but I've come across a problem or two. I'm trying to limit the amount of services/places I store information, and evernote is great for that. I've put more and more stuff into it, except it's very hard to figure out how to categorize things so that I can find them easily. Some people keep evernote just for cooking and taxes, I'm a creative person so my categories are more varied and less strict. For example my big main catergories are art, projects, school, personal, blogging, food, code, music, research, and work. Some of them overlap (like art/projects/work). Tags don't really seem to help. I can never seem to decide WHERE to put stuff. I've heard about GTD and organizing systems like that but none seem suited to me. Does anybody have any tips? My other big problem is images. I have a lot of images and there isn't an easy way to resize them so I tend to use up my monthly limit, which wouldn't be much of a problem as I just spread it out through the month, except I exceed the note limit. Making a note for each image would make things even worse and harder to find. I've tried a few third party resizing programs but none save the images correctly. Only photoshop does, but that's a chore. Are there any faster ones? Or does anyone have a different solution? The markup with skitch was great (though they've taken it out in the last version) but the resize option wasn't there. I've thought about just linking to local folders... but then things wouldn't be synced. Another solution I was considering was saving the images on google drive and syncing to those. I'd link the original images but the links often break. I just hope maybe hearing some ways others keep their stuff organized will help me.
