Hello everyone. I recognize this is a cross-post with a "Lifestyle" sub-forum and I apologize to those whose net etiquette has been offended. Recently embarking on the paperless journey, I have quickly realized that for the elegant simplicity of naming and tagging documents to be thrown into the Evernote soup and retrieved later via metadata or a robust search, there are many hang-ups in doing so with documents that one either needs to edit, ammend, aggregate, or otherwise tinker with while doing work. Whether these documents are as basic as MS Office files, or as complex as large statistical data sets, there are things that, at this juncture, just cannot live happily in the Evernote world. Without a boring discourse, I really have two fundamental questions: For those who require a file structure outside of evernote to do work (be it because of file formatting, frequent editing, sharing with non-evernoters, firewall issues for EN syncing, etc) - what, if any, program(s) do you use to achieve a similar level of ubiquitous access to your files as is provided in Evernote (i.e. Dropbox, Sugarsync, GDrive, etc.).? Whether you use a cloud sync tool or not, what is your preferred method of non-Evernote folder/file nomenclature/project structure? Does your file and folder nomenclature change if the documents are to eventually be archived in Evernote? I have grown quite fond of the YYMMDD prefix that Grumpy Monkey has adapted for his digital life, but I am struggling with how such a filing identifier can be adopted into a file naming system which also uses things like job (project) identifier codes (i.e. project 172C) to categorize and track things like costing, logistics coordination and billing. I ask these things because it appears as though I am quite unintentionally relying upon Evernote as a capture and action-related tool due to the bulk of my ongoing work taking place outside of Evernote. At the same time, I see great utility in combining the two, and at the very least would like to develop a work process that naturally feeds one into the other (or back and forth between the two). Any advice or experience in this area is, of course, much appreciated. Thank you all in advance for your valuable input on these forums. Without your willingness to share your experiences, I would still be mired in the paper/digital hinterland with the lion's share of my colleagues. It has drastically changed the way I approach information and work.
love evernote, use it everyday. But the more I use it the more I need to trust that what I put in it is safe and easily accessible but at the moment the folder architecture where MY DATA is saved is very unfriendly, and seems like it is designed to be only accessed by the program and not by users... It still is very unpractical that there is no "show in finder" option anywhere on evernote. I requested many times this essential option. I assume that all the data of one note is stored in one folder within evernote. The user-friendly thing would be to be able to right-click show in finder on a note to be taken to this folder, and to do the same on an image or any file added to the note to be taken to that very file. I CAN NOT STRESS ENOUGH HOW HELPFUL THAT WOULD BE . For instance, in some notes, I have added many many photos that I often need to access in their original file format without having to copy them individually and pasting them into folders, for example to show them in a preview slideshow. Knowing where my original data is stored is so crucial... I am sure as developers you understand that. The smart way to do it would be like the Itunes configuration where every song (note) is stored in a folder of that same name, in an album folder ( notebook) which in turn could be stored in a pile of notebooks (artist) folder, so that the architecture of the notes we SEE mirrors the folder architecture, instead of this intentionally obscure architecture. So why defy all logic and user friendliness? There is always some agenda in obscure program architecture... I would like to see evernote become it's best product possible because I really like it and can see myself using it for a very very long time, that being if I sense that the developers have my best interest at heart. In hopes that these constructive criticism will be heard this time. also, I still do not understand why we can not create a pile of notebooks within a pile of notebooks. That is very unpractical when things need to be ordered within subcategories
