  1. I have been using Evernote for years LOVE IT I have made all my friends and my family download it. And they love it as well. I have unfortunately/fortunately used EN as my second brain and it has saved my behind on an infinte number of occassions So what is my problem? My evernote looks like the inside of my brain. I know there are apps like Clearly which helps capturing web sites without the "other stuff" is there an app that allows for organization by: Pages/thoughts/pics from mobile " Computer " iPad " etc Is there any organizational app that allows for EN to be cleaned up of old stuff that isnt needed anymore? I have searched the boards but didnt find anything any help is greatly appreciated
  2. Hi! I am getting ready for my year and am trying to figure out a few issues I am having. I have 165 students. I want each of them to have a linked notebook. I would like to organize each linked notebook into their class periods in my notebooks. Is this possible? How do I do it if it is? Thanks! -Farrah
  3. I love Evernote - I looked round for a different solution when I moved away from OneNote, and this is a fabulous solution for organisation and memory. I also folded everything I was doing for list management with ListPro into Evernote too. Unlike many people, I don't use it so much for remembering where I've been and what I've explored - but it stores all my notes and to do lists. Many people seem to dump stuff in there and then use search to sort it all out. I prefer to have some organisation in my notebook. I synch to Evernote and then to my Android phone. There were one or two things I wanted to improve: so I did. Using a combination of logical thought and AutoHotKey, I created a working environment that responded to what I needed 1. Make Evernote more accessible. Solution - pin Evernote to the Windows task bar (obviously) 2. Make Evernote even more accessible. Solution - use AutoHotKey to create hot keys for my most frequently used notes. I have a hot key for each of my To Do lists, as well as a scratch pad for notes that occur to me as I write, as well as a log for how I am spending my time. Another hotkey brings up my most frequently used EN Notebooks, while another one brings up my current working set of documents. (I found the easiest way to do this was to ascribe a unique tag to each of my notes that i wanted to attach to a hotkey. Then I use quite a convoluted way of launching EN to get to the tag search consistently). 3. Creating To Do lists - Evernote doesn't allow multiple checkboxes to be created out of a selection. Solution: use AHK to create a checkbox and then drop to the next line, making it much easier to create a series of to do items 4. Highlighting To Do items - there are some cases where I would like to highlight an item, or to delete it while keeping a record of it (eg where I abandoned this task). Solution: create hot keys that select an entire line and bold/strikethrough/italic/colour the whole line. I've also created hot keys to select and copy/cut/delete the whole line. Useful for word processors too. It might be nice to have multistate check boxes (See ListPro) for this. 5. Clip parts of a document to a single EN document. While you can clip to multiple documents and then merge them, that leaves headers for each note. Solution: I have a hot key that copies to the Windows clipboard, saves the current window, opens a specific 'clipper' note, pastes it in and then restores the current window. 6. Provide subsets of documents for review. Solution: tag documents for review and create a custom search if needed. Save that search to the quick access bar. 7. Only search current notes / create the concept of an archive for notes that are no longer in use. Solution: a bit clunky, but tag old notes with 'Archive' then create a view called 'Working' and do all searches from there. 8. Sometimes notes get edited and I need an old version back - but I only keep one on line copy of everything. Solution: regularly backup all my notes historically using ENscript export (and notify using a popup window) 9. Be able to read Evernote on a larger mobile device Solution: could buy an ipad, but I use EN2KI to export to Kindle format. 10. Have an Evernote note open as a working space while doing something else, keeping it on top of the rest of the windows that are open. Solution: use AHK to create a hotkey to lock a window on top. Works great for other stuff too Some things outstanding/ideas for the future if the developers are listening.... It would be useful to be able to lock a series of notes to the taskbar (a sort of non-dynamic 'jump list') to get access to frequently used notes. Getting EN to launch successfully and provide a place where EN hot keys work consistently was a problem. I end up launching (using enscript) and then using Ctrl F6 & Ctrl F7 to ensure that I am in the note window (ie change from thumbnail to snippet to thumbnail to get a consistent space to launch the tag search. Otherwise it does something different depending on which window you are in! Android fidelity is still a bit weak - depending on what's been stored in a note the Android editor can be very very different - even if it's only simple text, the history is still there in some way so the editor is limited and behaves differently. As far as I can see it's not possible to edit a checkbox into the Android client either. It would also be nice to be able to create more visual cues for the notepads. Colouring the little green icons would help, but being able to create/select graphic icons for each would be even better. Although I do import output (eg images) from applications into EN (so I can use away from my laptop) that means that they are not connected. Being able to embed the application using OLE would help massively here, although I recognise that it's a 'one platform' solution. I am thinking in particular of mindmaps - I'd love to be able to keep the map image and then click through to launch the MM application when working on a client that supports it. I know it isn't some people's way of working, but for me, being able to use one view for work and one for home would help manage my life better. We'd need a way to decide whether a notebook was home/work or both (and of course it should be more flexible than this). Having a way of viewing documents that are 'active' as opposed to documents that are part of my information store/memory would also be useful to minimise data overwhelm. And finally - of course, I don't use EN exclusively, and some of my content is stored in Open Office documents etc... being able to integrate EN into Windows search would help massively in trying to organise my heterogenous information store. Awesome job, guys - long may it continue!
  4. Am a new user. The idea I'm trying to flesh out is to establish a shared file that my wife and I can both update, essentially for use as a shopping list. It'd eliminate duplicate trips/purchases. I've only seen twitter, FB, email shared files. This would be just the two of us, without public access... Any thoughts? Thanks.
  5. The more I use Evernote, the less I seem to need reminders and updates from other people. It encourages me to be self-sufficient to the point where I actually find myself socializing less. Gathering data from meetings, e-mails and websites is so automatic and simple! But I tend to focus on the details—not the people. I was surprised by this article: http://next.inman.co...-relationships/. It claims there is an advantage to using Evernote for relationship development, and offers a plan, too. The author states: I don't know if I will go as far as the author has in terms of developing a set template for my relationships. But I do think I might start noting my Skype and Gmail chats more frequently, so I can review them for a better rapport with online contacts. Just dedicating a Notebook to a particular person seems exciting. It could show you things about yourself, your own interests, and your own intentions in the relationship. Do you use Evernote to develop your personal or professional relationships? Share your tips and experiences.
  6. For the past two years or so I have maintained a wiki. For those unfamiliar with a wiki, think of Wikipedia, but smaller. I haven't updated my wiki much because it's not very convenient to log into my Google Sites account to work on it. A light bulb finally went off over my head. Why not just move my wiki into Evernote and offer it as a shared notebook? So that's what I did. As I have time I'm moving my entries over. It's so much easier just to make a quick edit and let Evernote do the rest. :-) John
  7. Hi all! Welcome to my corner of the Evernote forum! Let's talk about all the groceries, cleaning supplies, gas money and ninja mind focus it takes to manage a family... and how Evernote can help us get it all done!
  8. So, I want to continue using Evernote for everything in my life, which includes my vinyl LP collection. Now, I do use discogs.com for cataloguing my collection, but, they don't have everything I have. Yes, I could submit missing titles to them, but it takes time, so I'll save that for rainy days. This brings me back to my vinyl collection. What's the best way to enter it into Evernote? The jackets are too big for my scanner. Should I just take a picture of the front and back of each jacket and then merge relevant notes? I don't think it would take too long, with a family assistant, to run through my entire collection and take a photo of each. Thoughts?
  9. What are some of the most popular notebooks or tags you have used and seen in your EN experience? I am looking to use tagging(or using notebooks) as a way or organizing my to do list and other organizational things. I have a 1/hot, 2/warm, 3/cold notebooks where I qualify how important each to do is. Looking for other tips to add to my foundation. Thoughts I set up an ifttt task so that any gmail I get that I "star" goes directly to my Inbox in EN. This will help me not miss or forget emails. Of course I can also use the email to Evernote feature as well, but this one is quicker for some things. Anyone have any other cool ifttt tasks they set up to go with EN? I also created a separate notebook just for business cards with certain tags on each business card (a picture is included) to describe what organization each person is a part of. Right now, I also have each business card tagged with "business card" but I may change that. Any tips on this? Thanks.
  10. Evernote just got real! Well, I've been using it for some time, but never fully until this year. I still have MANY, MANY STACKS of old papers (mine, and my ancestors') to scan in, but, for now... I'm simply scanning in daily documents. Items that come to me in the mail or items I acquire in my daily dealings. All of it gets scanned. I figure if I truly don't need it, I can delete it later on. So, we recently bought a house. The previous owner, a friend of mine, sent me an email this afternoon asking me if I had received my tax assessment for this year yet. Well, hooray for me (and Evernote)! I had not only received it in the mail a few weeks ago, but I scanned it that day! So, I hopped into Evernote, did a quick tag search, and there it was! I grabbed the link for sharing, replied to his email so he could view it, and there you go! He now is giving me some tips and tricks for dealing with the local property tax assessments. Without Evernote, I would have been searching PILES OF PAPERS (because I'm a horribly DISORGANIZED person) and there would have been a chance that I wouldn't have found the document at all. Thanks again Evernote, you rock!
  11. So here's my workflow pattern. 1. Scan with s1300 snapscan. 2. OCR 3. Copy file from my "scan" folder to evernote 4. Move the file(s) into cabinet on organiser software. While this is fine, I feel that there's possibly a quicker way of improving my workflow? I want to OCR everything, but maybe I can get the scans into evernote quicker than copying from "scan" folder on desktop? But I also want a copy keep on my desktop. Any suggestions folks? Thanks.
  12. Since I'm new to this digital method of storage via evernote I thought I'd let people know how I'm going about my organising! After a lot of research here and excellent advice I started out by using tags/keywords along with notebooks. Overkill I know, but after only a week at using this system it's not that hard to change over. So that's what I've done. Instead of tagging everything, I just use the popular method of Date, keyword keyword, keyword in the title. Already I can see the big advantage of using simple "intitle:" searches and not bothering about loads of tags. In saying that, I still have loads of pointless tags which I'll get around to deleting as I clean up. Notebooks are also plentiful in my evernote account which I will soon narrow down to just 3/4 instead of the current 24!!! I'm using a system from now on which has been talked about a lot both here and on the net. I've a "!inbox" notebook where all new notes are sent to be default. After I process/title/date the notes I'm current sending them into a "@notes" notebook which is like a general archive notebook for all my processed notes. I also have a "!Need to do" notebook which I've changed the created date to 31/12/2012 so that it stays up on top of all the notes. This way I can use this note as a todo list or for stuff that needs action soon. So in time I aim to have just the following notebooks: 1. !inbox - processing all new notes 2. @notes - general archive for processed notes 3. !need to do - for todo lists/tasks needing action Originally I created notebooks for receipts, statements, money owed to me, books, internet websites, and appointments among others. I still have these notebooks but once I'm finished my massive batch of scanning materials I'll put the notes in these folders into the "@notes" notebook. I do have one worry about using this system in that I might forget what I actually have in storage. I know it will be easy to find the required notes but I'm just anxious in case I may forget what I'm filed away simply because I don't see the relevant notebook on the left hand side of evernote. I'd appreciate any thoughts or tips for my above system. Thanks.
  13. I will soon be organising my mothers business papers by means of a snapscan scanner and the wonderful Evernote. Basically I will be providing her with a digital copy of all her important receipts, tax sheets and everything relating to the paperwork side of her business. Normally the kitchen table is clustered with sheets of papers, bills and the usual stuff found in an unorganised environment. My question is simple. What's the best way to go about organising the above? Should I use tags or just titles? This will be my first time to use Evernote in this way so I want to get it right rather than going back and editing stuff later. I look forward to hearing your opinions. Thanks.
  14. I recently posted about how to use Evernote during the college search and admissions process over at my blog ChapBits. You can check it out here: http://blog.chapmanc...search-process/ Please feel free to add any other ways to use Evernote regarding the college planning process.

  15. Recently started using evernote after a long time of wondering exactly how it could benefit me. Well after about a week of playing around with it and adding notes etc, I quickly realised that this is the beast I needed to sort out my paper trail and also to possibly sort out my mums business in terms of organising her paperwork. So I went ahead a purchased the premium account today to give me maximum features. I also went ahead and bought a S1300 snapscan scanner as it had excellent reviews both here and elsewhere. I've two initial questions. 1. I intend to chop up a few books and scan them into evernote as pds's. Is it easy to create pdf's in this way, so that I can then transfer them onto my sony ereader in a format that will be easily readable on the ereader? 2. The maximum file size for one single note is 50mb. How can one go about decreasing the file size when creating pdf's as ebooks? Also, is there any way of decreasing the size of already made pdf's? For instance I've a few books in pdf format already but then are 80 - 100mb in size and therefore I can't transfer into evernote. I look forward to been part of this forum as its been a great source of help and info for me already. Thanks in advance for any help ye can provide.
  16. 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!
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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 ?
  22. 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!
  23. An interesting article in HBR, mostly focusing on the future of organization. The gist:
  24. 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?
  25. 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
