  1. I have many customers and have created individual Notebooks for them. My question is, what's the best way to keeping ongoing meetings for that customer? I'm interested in peoples thoughts of either 1) Keeping one long running note, with time stamps to separate each meeting OR; 2) Individual notes for each meeting (trade-off is I would have to open each note individually to review all my notes, but I can use tags)
  2. I misspell words, as im sure you do as well from time to time. i end up with multiple tags that technically mean the same thing but have different spellings because if im unsure how to spell a word it often gets multple versions of spelling on accident. thus i would apreciate an auto complete function that would popup when adding new tags and have evernote auto suggest tags that we might be typing despite the spelling not being correct.
  3. I just synched my evernote and all of a sudden every single one of my notes were taken out of the folders I placed them in and placed in "Conflicting Changes." Is there anyway to replace them back in their respective folders without having to individually go through all 600+? Also, how do I make sure this doesn't happen again?
  4. Hello! I am looking for Evernote book recommendations as well as any suggestions/insight/thoughts and other resources that might be useful to an Evernote hoarder who's ready to make a change.Just when had given up on becoming an organized and productive member of society, Evernote came into my life and renewed my hope. I'm so close . . . ... and yet so far! Truth be told, I'm starting to flounder and I need an intervention before my bad habits take over and ruin what could have been a beautiful relationship. The notebooks are piling up. It's starting to feel like a special edition of Hoarders. My episode of Evernote: Buried Alive deals with several issues. I constantly create new notebooks because I've forgotten about the old and don't know how to consolidate. Should I stack? Is stacking a notebook akin to creating "sections" of the same notebook (like OneNote)? I'm hanging on by my tags right now since they allow me to find past treasures buried deep in my hoard; however, I'm afraid that as helpful as they are, the tags are enabling me to continue living in squalor because they create the illusion of having my act together just because the place isn't condemned. I dig tagging and try to tag everything, but I'm inconsistent about naming tags, which just adds to the pile. I also question my clipping techniques - what's best? URL? Article? Full Page? Selection?? These are just a few of the million questions I have. I'm excited by all the tools and features in Evernote and I want to learn more about what's in the trunk, Skitch, and all these other programs. I love how you can share notebooks with anyone (even if they don't have Evernote) and I am eager to start collaborating with my clients and editors, but that requires me to get my act together first. I feel like I need to establish a working system before I fully dive in. I know that there's a million helpful resources here and elsewhere online, but that's part of my problem. Information overload! I believe that I really need a book where everything is organized in one cohesive unit for easy reference. I'm thrilled that there's so many Evernote books available, but now I'm faced with another dilemma - which one(s)?? I have read some reviews on Amazon, but I'd really appreciate any recommendations/insight/resources that people out there would be willing to offer. Despite my organizational challenges, I'm a pretty fast learner so I don't want to go too basic - I'd like to find a book or books that delve into the using Evernote with other applications. Since I'm already imposing, I might as well go full tilt and give you my Evernote book/resource wish list. Hopefully others out there can also benefit from any feedback this post generates.

  5. Hello, We recently decided to downsize our home here in Singapore and as a result found ourselves with quite a few items we wanted to sell. I tried e-Bay but found it to be quite cumbersome. I ultimately decided to use Evernote. I used Evernote on my iPad to take pictures of the items I had for sale, and then recorded the dimensions and price in the note field. For electronics I used Web Clipper to take snapshot of the manufacturer web sites listing the technical specifications and pasted that into a note along with the picture I took from my ipad. When I was done, I had a notebook with all the items I wanted to sell, the technical specs and the price. I then made the notebook Public and created a memorably bit.ly link to the notebook and referenced the bit.ly link the paper flyers I posted on various message boards and my Craigslist listings (one point to note here Craigslist doesn't like url redirection so it complained about bit.ly references. I worked around that by simply embedding the link in an image). Bit.ly lets me track clicks to the notebook. When Items sell, I use Skitch to update the image showing the item was sold, or simply move that item to another notebook thus preventing someone from calling on items I have already sold. As I move closer to our move date, i will begin lowering my asking prices and posting the current highest offer for any item. In one small project I used Evernote, on my iPad and Mac, as well as Webclipper, and Skitch. By way of example I have uploaded one of the ads I posted on Craigslist. If interested the bit.ly link is http://bit.ly/tbmove Tim
  6. Hi Guys I have been trying to organize my life with evernote. I use it for home as well as work. I recently purchased a new car and thought of keeping records/maintenance/reminders with evernote. Initially I looked at some PC software like CarCare. It is quite good but I dont like the idea of a standalone software though it is tailor-made for that purpose and comes with full functionality like reminders, export to file, etc., Is there a way to get something similar out of EN? I welcome your suggestions and tips. Will be posting my research too. To begin with, I have captured the purchase documents and insurance files using PDFScanner for Android with my Samsung Galaxy S3 and uploaded the same to SugarSync, got Public links to those files and put them in a note under my car's Notebook. S Kumar
  7. Hey guys, I had a friend recently looking for some advice on document storage, so naturally I turned him on to Evernote. I thought my system may be useful to some people, so I wrote a little blog post about it. Let me know what you think and how your system is set up! http://aaronfrancis.com/blog/2013/2/26/how-i-use-evernote-and-ifttt Aaron
  8. Your tagging system is crucial and here is how Evernote could improve it: Evernote must implement something fully featured like this:http://handytag.elitwork.com/home.htmlhttps://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/handytag Explanation from me (and the Firefox add-on author):It makes bookmark tagging easier, by simply providing a complete set of most relevant keywords. These keywords are retrieved from many different sources :the tags you already gave to one of your actual bookmarks.the keywords the webmaster gave to his webpage.the tags given by del.icio.us users for the same page.the tags the keyword extractor found using KGen (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4788).and finally synonyms for the above found keywords.You no longer would need to make a brainstorming session each time you want to add a new bookmark. It will do it for you! Please forward this feature request to Evernote. If this becomes part of Evernote I will move my complete bookmarking system from a certain competitor over to Evernote and become a Premium member. I'd be happy about a short reply. Thanks!
  9. What is the best scanner to digitize 10,000 photos? Want to upload some to Evernote as well. Does anyone use Evernote to back up photos in conjunction with another photo app?
  10. Hello all, I started to use the domain based approach to create my new notebooks. It basically ensure that you have as many nested notebooks as you want and not get restricted by the two level stack. also ensure then consistency comparing to tag system. it goes like this. If you think of google domain organization, it starts with the more specific to the general. e.g. news.google.com news (google news) -> google -> com (commercial) imagine you can type this in the url bar obama.politics.news.google.com which returns the politics news that is related to Obama from google news website. from this idea I started to do the same in Evernote but I am always starting with the most general to the least. e.g. notebook 1 name : finance . receipts notebook 2 name : finance . bills notebook 3 name: finance . banks . statements notebook 4 name: finance . banks . contacts notebook 5 name: education . school notebook 6 name: education . university . graduation notebook 7 name: education . university . application what do you think? am I missing any thing here? regards, Aziz
  11. First, I want to thank the faithful posters of this forum for helping me get started. I downloaded tons of forum discussions to Pockets and have spent the last month reading and rereading different people's organizational systems before I began. Almost became paralyzed with too much info, but finally just dove in and am loving it so far. Thank you! Now to my question. I read on this forum a couple of times that I should date each note in the title for ease in finding over the years, and the preferred method of dating was yr,month, day (ex. 130220 for today). I have been doing that, but honestly don't see how that is going to be helpful for me in the long run. What have you found. For the record, I've taken the advice of the pros that have posted here and have minimal notebooks (inbox, active, archive) and am including keywords in my titles and using a few tags when necessary. I also add the day's date to the beginning of each note, but it feels arbitrary when the note itself doesn't have any relevance to the date. Am I missing something or did I misunderstand something?
  12. I keep seeing people online, including academics, who say they organize their PDF collection using Evernote. But I haven't seen anybody explain how. Could somebody explain this for me? I'm new to Evernote but I already see the following problems for somebody who plans to organize their PDF collection in it: 1)60MB/month limit. The average PDF library will be much larger. Mine is about 500MB at the moment. 2)It does not seem possible to import an entire collection of PDFs at once. I have to drag and drop each PDF individually to get them in Evernote. Otherwise the entire collection of PDFs shows up as one note with many attachments, which won't help for organizing them. Here are examples of people saying they use Evernote for organizing PDFs: http://chronicle.com/blogs/profhacker/how-do-you-organizeannotate-pdfs/23839 (main article as well as in the comments) http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/qiqqa-organizes-academic-papers-students-friend-windows/ (only in the comments)
  13. Hi all just thought Id post one of my biggest uses for EverNote. I had a bad heart attack not to long ago and I was diagnosed as diabetic as well so I'm on mad drugs. I keep a list on Evernote of all my Drugs and Supplements there dosage and when I take them, I also have a list of all my sugar levels date and time it was taken. To make adding information to them easier or review them I use the "create shortcut" option which puts an icon on my phone's desktop for that individual list. This is a really useful option which I don't see mentioned that much do you have a shopping list or a project that you go to often on your phone one press and your there try it its really useful.
  14. We are switching to a high deductible health insurance plan starting in Jan 2013. I've looked all over the internet hoping to find that someone has created a good system for keeping track of everything in one place but haven't been able to find anything. I'm wondering if there is anyone using Evernote for this. If not, I think it would be a great idea to develop some guidelines for this subject. I know that many companies are moving towards these plans as healthcare costs continue to rise, so it's definitely something we'll be needing in the future. Thanks for any help you might be able to give me!!

Thanks, Senad
  16. (Evernote user since June, 2009) I just came here to post that many times, I don't feel like organizing. I'm a piler, not a filer, and my physical desk shows that. On my left, I've got about 10 CDs that I've either listened to recently or will listen to soon. Right behind me, I've still got vinyl records out that I listened to three days ago. Also on my desk are some rocks from the beach trip last week, a hammer, condiments, and a whole lot of odds and ends. My point is, I'm typically an unorganized person, and I'm ok with that. Sure, there are periods of time where I get real organized, but it only last so long. This is where Evernote comes in. I made a habit early this year that whenever paper came across my path, whether it be a bill, a notice, an account summary, artwork from my children, a photograph, a letter I received, or daily stuff like business cards and handwritten notes, ALL of it gets scanned immediately and it goes in Evernote. I keep a file on my desktop and once I scan an item, I save it to that file and Evernote imports it automagically! So, I don't tag much in Evernote these days, nor do I keep many notebooks, but stuff does go in there, A LOT, and when I need it, I do a quick search and can bring it up. And then, occasionally, I'll go in and file it. Just the other day, my wife asked for an old water bill. FOUND IT! Evernote rocks.
  17. I recently took a fresh look at how to organize my Evernote into Stack/Notebook/Tag. I couldn't find a good solution to fit my organizational needs. Use Case: Food stack containing Recipe and Restaurant notebooks. Food Recipe Restaurant Q: Where do I put a note titled "Food to Eat Before I Die"? Possible Solutions: Make "Food" a notebook and organize everything in a flat structure with tags New notebook under "Food" Make "Food" a tag and create new stack/notebook structure NEW FEATURE: Allow Note Stacks to contain notes. Open to suggestions ATM I am using a notebook called Food which is part of the Food stack. This is how I am storing notes as part of a stack while not necessarily tied to a uniquely named notebook. Food Food Recipe Restaurant I think that this solution leaves a lot to be desired since almost all of my stacks are going to require a generic 'self-titled' notebook inside of them. I'm accustomed to the GMail way of organization (labels). Do any experienced Evernoter's have advice on how to organize a note specific to a stack rather than a notebook?

  18. Hi, i have a problem i can not find a solution. In the organization of my knowledges (and only knowledges, no stuff like "to do"), i need a way of sorting my stuff with lots of levels, i mean knowledge A 1. a.first second b. c. 2.knowledge B ETC. Notebooks NOR tags allow me to set up my stuff with lots of levels as i need : both only accept 2 levels, but i need something deeper. Hope i'am understandable :-) Any ideas/tips how i could build something like that? any help appreciated. Jérôme.
  19. Tags that I added for use with notes disappear from list. Two other tags now how right pointing arrow next to them. What did I do?
  20. I have found an absolutely wonderful use of Evernote in conjunction with my e-mail. Granted, it may only apply to people who use (or used) e-mail the way I did.... I found that I was using e-mail for three different things: Sending and receiving messages (duh) Keeping a to-do list -- that's what my inbox did An information-storage system -- I saved messages that contained some information I wanted to keep for future reference (e.g., an account number, an address, etc.) I found that #1 and #2 worked just fine for me; I'm good about keeping my inbox down to size. But I was also using my e-mail apps to store lots and lots of notes containing some small bit of info I might need sometime -- account or login info, people's contact data, various tidbits of information, even jokes. Even with a decent folder structure, though, e-mail apps really aren't made for storing information you need to get at. That's not what e-mail does. I could save each of those messages as a separate file ("Dad's_Dropbox_login.txt"), but that would get really messy. Enter Evernote, which I had been using on and off since it first debuted -- the days when it saved things as just a single long stream of text. I went through my entire folder structure -- everything from contacts to account info and receipts to... well, whatever. Unless I needed to save the message itself (in a CYA sorta way), I moved them into Evernote. Soon enough my Evernote folder structure approximated my (now defunct) e-mail folder structure. Now my e-mail has a handful of small folders, and Evernote is loaded with all the stuff I might need. Even better, it's so much easier to add stuff -- Web clipping or uploading or whatever. No more e-mailing things to myself. And -- just in case Evernote isn't the 100-year company it wants to be -- I can archive all my notes as well. My wife has a monster e-mail account, with literally thousands of messages she's saving for various reasons. So I get a kick whenever she sees my handful of folders with a few dozen messages. (Of course, my Evernote folders are bulging, but that's what it's for.) Anyway, I wanted to share how I found EN to be a nice way to clear out my e-mail, make all those little snippets easy to find (and update), and give me something to show off to others: "Wow, you have a lot of messages in your inbox there. You ever think of maybe getting a note-taking app?"
  21. Just download 5.0 for Mac. Looks good. It would be helpful to not only see a list of all tags, but to also be able to view all tags that occur in any one notebook/subject area only. For example, I have a multitude of notebooks related to work and personal. One of my work notebooks has many many tags (I like to think of them as files). Many of the others have only 1-2 tags. When I see a list of ALL tags for ALL notebooks, in alphabetical order, I still have to look for particular tags for any notebook I want to view. Is it possible to have a drill-down from ALL TAGS -> ALL TAGS CONTAINED IN _________ NOTEBOOK? Or, when bringing up a Notebook, to see a list of all the tags in that notebook? Thank you.
  22. Hi there, I would like some advice/help on how to use evernote the best way possible for me. As a projectmanager, Student and familyman i’v got lots of things I can put into Evernote. In your opinion: Does the format below covers most of the needs I could have to put things in Evernote? What changes would you make to make it easier for me to put notes in evernote? And more important being able to maintain them. I’m not (very) familiar with GTD, but also interested in that subject too. Setup concept: !Inbox (primary notebook) !Todo (this one is new for me) 1.

I am one of the few people allowed to have a laptop, but at work I can’t sync notes to and from Evernote (nor use the fantastic Outlook functionality).So I now most oftenly mail notes to my evernote account. Also note that i’m not planning to have all my financial products and information in Evernote, only basic information and information when I have an appointment with our financial advisor. (I have faith in Evernote, but not THAT much fate ;-) ) I use Evernote at: - Work laptop (windows 7) - Personal laptop (Windows 8) - Ipad 2 wifi+mobile data - iPhone 4 I'm planning on buying an HP7520 multifunctional with the capability to mail to Evernote for private use. Any tips on how to keep my live on track? :-)
  23. I saw a posting on LifeHacker where the poster said he didn't understand the appeal and value of Evernote. So I posted a reply which seemed to merit posting here too. My work, family, and personal life has a lot of moving parts. Evernote helps me keep them all organized. It is mostly a place to collect notes on a wide variety of topics. Such as: - Work - The three new products I'm bringing to market for my company - The five existing products I need to sustain - The ideas I have for new products - Tasks that don't directly link to either of the above - Travel plans: flight info, times, etc. - Travel perk memberships for airlines and hotels - Photos of whiteboard sessions, customers using our products, customers with cool ideas... - Home - Repetitive maintenance tasks - Shopping lists for Lowes/Home Depot - Family - Gift ideas for my wife,three kids, and me (for when they ask what I want for ...) - Clothing sizes for everyone - Medical info including last immunization, allergies, ongoing medication - Which ink cartridge each printer uses - Model, make, VIN, year, color, and more for each of the cars - Personal - Tasks I've committed to for church, social groups, etc. - Names of new people I've recently met or whose name I'm likely to forget (most, sadly) - Books I'd like to order from the library The alternative is an endless collection of paper scraps. Evernote isn on both my work and personal cell phone, home desktop, office laptop, personal laptop, iPad, and an Android tablet. No matter where I am I have at least one of these. I can make a note, it always goes into the right place, and everything syncs beautifully and automatically. Without Evernote, or something very similar, I'd be in deep trouble. And that's how I use Evernote- with gratitude to the inventors.
  24. I suspect that bits and pieces of the application I'd like to address can be found in many of the forums (Organization, GTD, Productivity, etc), but perhaps there is one forum that most specifically addresses my application. As an engineer who tracks projects (design, scoping, demolition, installation, and eventual operation) I would like to use a "template" that could be populated and delivered to the ultimate customer. For example, if I were renovating a house with a new layout, drawings, appliances, etc, I'd like to deliver a comprehensive package of before/after photos, maintenance manuals, logs, etc. What would be the best forum in which to kick around these ideas? Thanks.
  25. Recently I've been trying to find my next car. I knew finding a suitable car with good pricing would be a tedious job, so I use Evernote to collect all the informations, and use them to help me making a final decision. 1. Researching: The early stage is to do research online, to learn about cars within my price range, and their features/performance. Since all these info are scattered on the internet, I use Evernote's clipping feature when researching on laptop browser, and use EverClip to clip notes when researching on a mobile device. 2. Talking to dealer: When talking to dealers, I need to quickly take notes on my iPhone, without disrupting my talk with dealers. I use QEver and FastEver to do the quick note taking. They don't have too much features, but are good for quick note generation. 3. Organizing information: When I come back to home, I need to organize all the information. This time, Evernote itself is the best client, since it has all the features available. I use one notebook for each type of car, and use one note to record my talk with each dealer. Basically the whole strategy was a success, and I finally decided to choose an Audi, and will get it soon. Hope these experience could inspire other's usage of Evernote!
