  1. Ok, so i've created a load of notes either from my phone or from the web which I stick in my "!inbox" notebook to sort out later. So when I go through my !inbox nb and title/tag the notes, where do I put them them? I'd like to have my inbox empty and fresh but I don't have specific notebooks for all the different notes I've created and I don't want to go creating notebooks for everything? I've 20 notebooks already and I'll be getting rid of most of them over time. I'd just like to hear what ye folk have to suggest regarding how ye free up your inbox notebook so that its not full of new notes after you tag them. Thanks!
  2. There are tons and tons of attributes and depending on what we're interested in - any attribute of an object is a potential way to group notes... It's practically impossible to define all attributes whenever you process notes in Evernote. And you never really know how you're going to search for the note later and in what case it might be useful and what topic it might be related to. I personally have a lot of thoughts on this topic but would like to know what do you think. How do you deal with this? How many notes do you keep? How many tags do you use? The more the better? the less the better? What about adding new tags/attributes/any metadata to a new group of notes but not adding those new tags to all your previously created relevant notes because it's just not practical when you have thousands of notes. What are your thoughts about the best way to use metadata and store and retrieve personal information overall? (Not technically but in general idea.) yeah, I know, it's a very broad question I think it's still a fairly new thing for most people to try and capture all meaningful information in their life so we're all pioneers in this in a way. do you know any good books, articles on this topic? I'm not interested in newbie/ tips&tricks kind of stuff though but interested in more of a holistic methodology/concepts/models, e.g. Gtd.
  3. Tags are very useful ways of sorting information in a notebook. It would be useful to be able to change their order in the sidebar
  4. Please excuse me if this has been discussed in the many debates of tags vs notebooks. If it has please direct me to the exact post as I can't find one. The reason I don't like tags is the way they are set up in iPad and iPhone makes them to me very user unfriendly. In other words, on EN in mac, you can click on a note and it shows the corresponding tags. With the both iOS devices, you don't had this. Instead you have to use the "Tag" option which list far to many tags and you can only click on one vs narrowing it down. Again, if this has been discussed please show me and if I am missing something would love to hear. I am trying to find a way to use tags but just having trouble with the workflow on the iOS devices.
  5. Hi there, My organization would like to produce a commemorative book for our upcoming 100th anniversary. I am contemplating on opening a group account for the purpose of collaborating on this project. If one is created, I see how group members are invited and accepted, however; I have some questions: What is the annual cost for a group account? (Couldn't find this on your website) How best would you advise organizing Evernote for a project of this nature? Notebooks or tags? We know that we want to organize the research by decade and within each decade to have folders or notebooks or tags for people, places and things. I don't understand what a "stack" is? Do we have to be concerned by the amount of data we would accumulate for a project of this nature? What are the risks in loosing or having members inadvertently delete notebooks or notes. Does anyone have examples of a project of this nature using Evernote? Thanks.
  6. For me Evernote is a great tool to record oddball things that might otherwise not have a 'home'. I use it to record clothes size tags for myself and others I may wish to buy for. I know people can and do change size but at least my purchases are based on some reality and not just a wild guess. It's also a great security addition e.g. if there is a strange car in the neighbourhood - just take a picture and upload with a little note. But best of all is for recording serial numbers (TV, PC, Phone etc) you never know when you might need them.
  7. I have just gone through some messy stuff with mortgage companies some of whom were far from being honest or who would conveniently loose data etc. Needing a way to track every engagement I came up with a log a very simple note in Evernote that took a format like ----------------------------------------------- Contact Number Fax Number Email Account Number ----------------------------------------------- YYYY-MM-DD HH-MM contacted by fred requesting extra data on loan and requested a $$ payment within one week ----------------------------------------------- YYYY-MM-DD HH-MM sent company a $$ payment (see link) emailed Fred to let him know ----------------------------------------------- etc I kept all the unique contact / account style data at the top and when contacts changed I would just add a new contact name with a date so I could always quote old contacts by name as needed. My goal was a log that gave the company zero wiggle room as far as claiming no knowledge or late payments / data etc. Having both a Mac and an iPhone with Evernote installed no matter where I was I could keep the log current no matter where I how I was contacted. I then scanned every piece of documentation into Evernote and used "Copy Link" to cross reference that material as well. This worked so well now run multiple of these logs for different issues at home and work and created a meta index using "copy link" from a single note that stays in my Inbox so I can find these very quickly. On that wondered if anyone had a 'review' process they use with their Notes. Notes that expire and should be cleaned up , removed , concatenated, summarized etc ?
  8. Its so easy and you'll be a hero. I started doing this this year and it's been beneficial already. Throughout the year, as you window shop and talk with your wife (or husband, or girl/boy friend, kids, etc), track what she likes in Evernote. For example, we were at a store, she picked up this cute little hand bag and said "I love this!", i pulled out my phone, acted like i was texting a friend and took a snap shot of it. Used Skitch to highlight exactly what item she wanted, saved to Evernote and tagged it Gift and Wife. Now that Christmas is here, I have a short list of items she loves! Go me!
  9. An interesting article in HBR, mostly focusing on the future of organization. The gist:
  10. Let's say you have a lot of notes with some tag and want to further organize them by using note links to make an overview note, similar to a table of contents. And you would group notes there in any way you like and etc. Let's ignore the fact that you can't do it on iPad at all. (except using remote desktop app) This is what even the blog posts says about note links "Create a table of contents for a selection of notes. Whether you’re working on a study guide or planning your wedding, you can use Note Links to get ahead of the game. Create a new note and add Note Links for things like Notes: October, Notes: December, etc. or “Guest List,” “Flowers,” “Vendor Numbers.”" So far so good. You have made this overview note with note links and organized it all there really nicely. Now what you have basically is a tag which has an overview note with all its notes organized there and the notes themselves. It's all in a flat list but you have to look only at the overview note because all notes are there in the form of note links and are organized in categories and subcategories and what not. But then eventually you added some notes to this tag. And you didn't think about this overview note at the time because it was out of sight. Then after some time you go back to review notes with this tag. You see lots of notes in a flat list and also an overview/table of contents note with most but NOT all notes listed there. And there is no way to really check what's there and what's not. It's not apparently noticeable. So things get missed. And you don't even know. This basically means you have to organize notes in 2 separate places. One workaround I can think of is using an additional tag for each tag to hide notes which are already organized in some sort of overview note. For example you have tag "evernote" and then also an additional tag "evernote-organized as note links/organized in table of contents" or something. Whenever you add notes as note links to an overview/table of contents note for this tag you also tag them as "evernote-organized as note links". Then after a while you could go back to this "evernote" tag and do a search for -tag:"evernote-organized as note links" to hide all notes which are already organized in some sort of overview/table of contents note. This would make it easy to see if there are any new and "unorganized" notes in this tag which are missing from an overview/table of contents note. Basicaly this would pretty much double your amount of tags which is quite an incovenient workaround. Hopefully you understand what I mean... This is one and only reason I'm going to avoid using note links for "table of cntents" kind of notes which would have been useful otherwise... Any ideas?
  11. Hi All....Sorry for a different post....Wasnt sure whether to add to my other post which was about a different issue or start a new one....So thought it might be better to have a different one with a better topic.... I have many Notebooks & many tags.....I am trying to see what setup would be better... I have attached 2 screenshots of my notebooks and tags... I have a lot of manuals that I store as I am an engineer.... I am trying to figure out whether I need so many notebooks or so many tags... As an example Notebook - Manuals HP Servers has 17 Notes which have PDF's of the manual. I then have tags for each model so that I can search for the manual in question when I am out and about. Another example, I am an avid gamer & snapshot a lot of website /forum pastes related to different gaming topics...So I have notebooks for each game, but then have tags also for specific subjects within each game. Looking for the experience of other forum buddies to give me some tidy up experience. I am planning on storing all my receipts in future to evernote...either scanning a paper receipt of emailing evernote from the electronic receipt. Any help would be appreciated Cheers John
  12. Go to all the restaurant websites in your town Download all their menus (most are in PDF nowadays) to your special Evernote folder When you do, Evernote will import them If they don't have PDF menus, just clip the menu portion of their site Apply tags or put in special folders if needed Now, whenever you're hungry, just go to Evernote and type "pizza" or "sushi" or even be specific like "artichoke" or "barbacoa", and see what restaurant menu comes up! Now you know where to eat tonight, or any night! No more searching restaurants in your area and wasting time going from site to site!
  13. I have been trying to find the Evernote button I can add to my Postbox so that I can send mails to EN for later. I have right clicked on the Postbox toolbar to customize but it is not there. Any help on this would be great.
  14. Really want to use Evernote in the best way possible to organize a lot of my life. I feel that I really use it like a hodgepodge mess, rather than a organized machine. Trying to look at different ways to keep all my clients information organized and structured. The two ways I see to do this, is either have a notebook associated with each client, OR, have a tag associated with each client. Don't know which one other's have used to do this. I have to add data to my clients information every year, and keep up to date with it. This all needs to be easily accessible and highly organized. Just wondering what some best practices are that are out there. Thanks
  15. There should be some way to divide notebooks into chapters or sort their contents by tab because, while I use search, there are times where I have to study for tests with un specified content. I it would be nice if i could sort the notes by chapter in the notebook pane or use the tags to mark chapters which could be sorted out in the search pane. (And yes i know there are alredy tags I just want to be able to sort by tag)
  16. Hi All....Looking for some guidance....I am a server hardware engineer....On a daily basis I have to complete a time sheet that shows what I have done for that day....The Timesheet is called DAR & is a spreadsheet. however I create a note for each day to list what I have done...Example below SL123456 Diags Replace HDD - 150399-001 Diags Test Build Wipe Device SL987654 Diags Order 146GB HDD - 406474-001 SL656768 Diags Order System Board That's my example I am looking for a way to organise these, make them easy to import some of the data into the DAR Spreadsheet. Also, I would like to be able to easily search the Asset ID(SL123456) to be able to check if I have previously worked on it & search the part number(150399-001) for the same reason...See how many I have ordered Any guidance in this area would be appreciated. I am new & hoping to try and use Evernote more
  17. Last night I was speaking to a group, and chatted with one of the attendees after. We were talking about how we use Evernote, and he had a great idea I just had to share! Remember those carbon copy phone message logs? I LOVED them. How about using a notebook in Evernote to do the same thing? What a simple and easy thing to do! I've already created one for me, and look forward to using it! What do you do with your phone messages? How do you use Evernote this way?
  18. I'm not really sure this belongs in this category but... Although it's that time of year when we're buying a lot of things for a lot of people, this is something I do all year long. The situation used to be we'd get a catalog. I'd skim it & sometimes there are things I may want to buy but am just not sure at the moment. So I dogear the page & stow the catalog. Now, I just scan the page, put it in EN with a descriptive title/tags & toss the hard copy. Also nice if the catalog is for a local store & you can't find the item. I just pull up the photo & show a clerk what it is I'm looking for. I've done this several times - the last time, two nights ago.
  19. I can hardly believe it's nearly Thanksgiving here in the states! This massive undertaking of a meal has got me thinking (especially since I'm hosting this year), of organizing it. Here's what I'm doing: 1. The food. Started a notebook with recipes of interest related to this fabulous holiday (confession: it's my favorite one.) As I cruise around, and inhale Thanksgiving magazine issues, all those bits of info go into that notebook. I also have a "real life" file of everything I've collected from the last 15 years or so on food and the plan of getting it all done. It's soon to be entered into Evernote so my iPad will be my control center this year. 2. The fun stuff. I've been finding all sorts of great table scapes, crafts and decorating ideas for the holiday. So, I've been stashing the keepers in Evernote (as well as Pinterest) for those I'd like to try. How do you organize yourself? Have any great resources to share?
  20. In my daily business, I am always tinkering with my websites or have ideas to keep track of. I have a "Techie Stuff" where I keep all those random clips. Whether its code or oher techie articles I find I need to reference later. Do you all use Evernote this way? What's your idea?
  21. I have created a personal blog for storing my recipes and have found Evernote to be an invaluable tool. My blog is organized by category and I've created notebooks in Evernote with those category names for storing recipes and blog post ideas. I'm able to clip a recipe, a picture (if available) and the website (to give credit to the source) and store it where I know I'll be able to find it again. I also have a notebook entitled "Recipe Box" where I store miscellaneous clip art, menu plans, and other things that don't fit into the blog categories. Once I have tried a recipe (or my husband has, which is more often the case), I make any necessary adjustments to the recipe, and then create a blog post with the recipe name as the blog post title. Finally, I've been able to recycle all those clippings from websites, magazines and newspapers and put them in a place where they easily accessible, and make them available to family and friends as well. Here's a link to my recipe blog to see how easy it is to keep that recipe clutter to a minimum: Recipe Road
