  1. This should not be too hard to add. Please, can you make it possible, that I can color code my notes for better organization. Thank you, Kind Regards
  2. http://www.harmonenterprises.com/blog/organize-evernote-notebooks Thought I'd throw some chum in the water for the relentless notebook sharks. I'm one of those taggers who uses very few notebooks, based on access (local, synchronized, shared, offline), not content, but I have to admit that Harmon makes a compelling argument, especially since tag organization cannot currently be viewed on all platforms.
  3. Good day to every one. It's been six years now since I use Evernote as my main knowledge database. I have many notes connected with internal Evernote links, on different subjects, so many of my notes are part of a nebulous wiki. However, I am a bit worried because all those notes are locked inside Evernote interface, they depend on Evernote app for navigating among them. I know I can make an export of them, but the resulting collection of notes is not navigable besides a general index, which is impractical: internal links don't work between html version of the notes, they only drive back to the original evernote format notes. So I wonder if is there a way to exporting a working wiki / navigable set of notes out of evernote, in html format or any other format that would be readable out of Evernote...
  4. Things like "Years" 'Dates" "Months" (dates as whole dates and also as individual components by themselves) should all be treated as smart tags automatically. Instead of requiring me to make a tag before I can send to it in email, please let me just add any year or date or month or day of week automatically to any note and send in via email so that i can be organized on a whim. this would 1) make our tag lists more condensed and organized (Would create more screen real estate on phones and desktop as if i have a list of 10 different years that i tag notes with then it makes a list) 2) make inputting of notes easier and more streamlined Note: i find that yes, i can technically search by date in the apps some how - at least on desktop i know i can, but the date the note was created is not always the date that i'm tagging something with and searching by date is not visually infront of us, and only needs to appear as a tag option if we happend to lable stuff as it. You can put it all under a single smart tag group called "calendar" for notes deliberately tagged with certain dates days of week, months or years.
  5. I think it would be a good idea to have an extra option to sort notes and notebooks by priority or by your choice of the desired order of the notes and notebooks. This would be useful because the order of the notes and notebooks will not change no matter what unless you change your desired order of the notes and notebooks or change the priority setting on them (if you decide to add a priority setting over the desired order of the user). This will add a new noting style for people who like it this way. An example of a priority setting would be similar to tags, but you could only have three options (depending on the number of options/priorities the Evernote team decides to program in the software) and a maximum of 1 option to assign to the notes and notebooks. The options could be A, B and C (with A being the highest priority at the top of the list of notes and notebooks and C being the lowest). The options could also be 1, 2 and 3. This is different from the other system where the user chooses the desired order because the desired order system could just be dragging notes and notebooks to their desired order between the top and bottom of the list of notes and notebooks without assigning a priority to notes and notebooks.
  6. Using Tags as Pseudo Notebooks (pNB) [Note: At the urging of another user, I have started a new topic for this subject. I posted the below originally in Jan 2016. I am in the process of rewriting, fine-tuning this article, but for now the below is a copy of my original post at Using Tags as Pseudo Notebooks . The basic design of pNB has not changed.] My knowledge of how to use Tags continues to evolve. This has been largely due to limitations Evernote has placed on Notebooks. So, the question is: How does one make the best use of the tool they have? Notebooks (NB) are limited to 250. Tags are virtually unlimited at 100,000. Tags can have a hierarchical structure of Parent Tag / Child Tag, much like the folders that you see on your computer. So, if we can model NBs as Tags, then we can effectively have unlimited NBs and sub-NBs. One of the most appealing features of Notebooks (and folders) is how they visually appear. But what if we can do the same visual layout with Tags? Stay tuned to learn how. I use tags in two fundamentally different ways: Pseudo Notebooks -- use in place of where you would normally use a notebook. This includes sub-notebooks. Note Categorization -- traditional use of tags to categorize the entity, which can have multiple tags. Can be used across Notebooks, or in this case, across pseudo NBs. Using Tags as Pseudo Notebooks Tags can be organized in hierarchies (meaning Parent-Child relationship). So we can achieve the appearance of Notebooks and sub-notebooks, Without going into a lot of detail at this point, I have created a number of Tags which serve as pseudo Notebooks. Note that all of the pseudo NBs, actually tags, all have a prefix of ".NB.", which makes it easy to identify which tags are pseudo NBs, and will cause them to appear at the top of the Tag list. You can, of course, use any prefix that works for you. One great advantage of using tags as pseudo NBs, is that you can assign multiple pseudo NBs to the same Note. Can't do that with actual NBs. Each Note can belong to only one NB. So this allows me, for example, to assign multiple pseudo NBs of .NB.IT, .NB.Business, and .NB.Personal to the same Note, which is the asset record for a new Mac, used in both business and personal activities. Now when I search or filter on any of the 3 pseudo NBs it will find the asset record of my Mac. I now have all of my pseudo NBs that appear at the top of my Tag list, and the pseudo NBs can, and do, have sub-pseudo NBs. Here's an example: As a result, I now have a need for ONLY 3 main Notebooks, plus any Notebooks needed for sharing or mobile offline use: Please feel free to post any questions or comments. EDIT: Mon, Feb 29, 2016 at 12:36:27 PM CST For more discussion on pseudo notebooks, see Using Tags as Pseudo Notebooks (original post) Do you find lots of notebooks or notebook stacks useful?
  7. A wish list, I guess. I clip a lot of stories, articles, reviews – for research, or the basis for further work. This involves subsequent organization into overlapping and constantly developing areas of interest. I find myself wanting to be able to do two things: 1. Highlight and annotate text in notes. I know you can do this with pdfs, but I wish I could highlight text selections or add comments to things in notes – much in the way I might use a highlighter in a physical book or notebook, or scribble some comment in the margin. 2. Add the same new tag to multiple notes. My areas of interest overlap. I notice a connection between tag A and tag B. They're separate things, but there's an overarching relationship, so I want to add a tag C. Instead of opening all the notes with tag and tag B singly, and adding the new tag to each of them, I wish I could do this with a single action. Or two actions. Search for notes with tag A, add tag C to every note on the whole list of results. Same with tag B.
  8. Hi. I don't know if this is the right place to post this. If it is not, please tell me where the right place would be. I have created a table in the web versión and I can't find a way move downwards in the document (basically, pressing return and moving downwards and getting out of the table). I'm completely stuck. I usually use the Windows desktop versión which is not allowed at work. I am completely stuck and what I want is extremely basic and I am still unable to figure it out. Basically i need some way to be able to move downwards in the document. Thanks, Gonzalo
  9. Hi. Is there a way to use Evernote that would allow the following: I have multiple apartments that I manage. I want to store data about what square footage the apartment is, date it was painted, the color paint, furnace make/model/size, a floorplan image, etc. How would i set things up in Evernote so that i could easily pull up all the specific info on a particular apartment, but also have the option of printing a specific item of data for ALL the various apartments (like a list of all the furnace filter sizes i should buy at the start of the winter). Here's a simplified example of my data (I actually track many more data items): APT-1 : 500 sq, ft. Trane CB400 furnace, 14x12 filter, serviced 12/2017, [link]. APT-2: 720 sq. Ft. Gibson RS60 furnace, 16x14 filter, serviced 10/2017, [link]. APT-3: 850 sq. Ft. Gibson TL40 13x13 filter, serviced 1/2018, [link]. So when we're working on one apartment, i want to pull up ALL the above data on that one apartment. But other times i want to pull a specific bit of data (like furnace filter size), but for ALL the apartments. Without all the other data in the way, just show Apartment and filter size, for all apartments. Any suggestions? Or is this more a task for a relational database rather than Evernote? Thanks!
  10. I REALLY would like to make subfolders in Evernote a thing. I'm an extremely specific person and I like everything to be in subfolders. For example, I'm a photographer and I like to have all of my clients as a separate note. I'd LOVE to be able to have subfolders in my "Clients" notebook for completed, processing, & queued clients. Does anybody else forward this? I think this needs to be a thing.

  12. Here is an article I wrote about my workflow as a CIO, which is heavy in Evernote. https://educationaltechnologyguy.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-workflow-as-cio-includes-heavy-use.html
  13. Hello, I am attempting to use Evernote to organize my files and need some help. I am a pastor attempting to catalog and organize my past and future sermons. They are written documents and what I would like to do is highlight quotes, stories, statistics, etc. tag them appropriately, and have them automatically added to a master file of quotes. Is there anyway to tag and organize portions of a document without simply copying and pasting over and over? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks,
  14. It would be very nice to show notebook next to the note's title (with the respective "View option"), for example as "My notebook | 30/03/2017 | 1 KB". What do you think about it?
  15. Ok, So I am new to evernote and I was searching around for ideas of how to structure my evernote. I wanted to share wihte other new people and receive comments / feedback of how others use. My goal for evernote is mainly to have a core location for my important files such as taxes and other files I store in google drive Examples of using organization in Evernote (Attached is a diagram of how I have my evernote notebacks and stacks set up example, organize by year. The bellow structure is - Stack -- notebook -- Tags _INBOX (Default Notebook) -- All emails and scanned files go here, tag as need then move to appropriate notebook _My-Files (notebook) -- All files with Tags go here if they don't go underneath financial management Notebook Stack -- (Stack) -- Collection of notebooks for taking notes IT Notes (Notebook) -- Random IT notes work related or home go here John Notebook (notebook) -- Where random notes about things will go Work Related (Stack) -- All work related Notebooks and files go here My Work Locations Wife Work Locations zFinancial Management -- Stack ( I start the stack with a "z" because I want the stack at the bottom of all the other stacks Taxes (notebook) -- W2, 1099, 1095, etc... actual tax documents saved in this notebook Expenses (notebook) -- everything below are tags - Anything with the below tag will likely be saved in Expenses Notebook YYYY --- Will tag with the year plus some of the below Receipts Utility bills Medical Receipt Loans Bank Statements Credit Cards Budget Checks Tax Deduction ** NOTE ** Because tags above exist underneath notebooks this is just an example of showing where files would moved if one of those tags are added to it TAGS <<-- What I have so far 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Airlines Wife Backup <<-- I tag attachments with one of these tags letting me know I have the actually attachment backed up online some where such as Gdrive G-Drive G-mail Dropbox ME (my name goes here) Confirmation Number House Items Electronics Invoice-Receipts House A Expenses House B Expenses Kids Johnny Jane June Ginger Organization Notes Photos Receipts Medical Receipt Resumes Taxes Tax Deduction Travel Houses << -- Past houses we have lived in House 1 House 2 House 3 Utility Bills Websites Naming Scheme << -- Still in work Generic YYYY-MM-DD-category-company Documents tied to a person YYYY-MM-DD-Person-File_purpose/category Receipts YYYY-MM-DD-Vendorpurchasedfrom-Item TAGS Search for Notes missing tags -tag:tagname <<< this will show you all files that DONT have that tag name I am about to integrate filethis.com into the above structure but I haven't yet
  16. Currently We can do the following only. binder notebook note I would like to do the following Binder Folder "NEW" Notebook Note There has been to many times where I need 1 more layer of organization. here is a good example. I use evernote for home and work. HOME House Kids Things to do ETC Work (binder) Client name (Folder) client site (Notebook) notes Overall I would like to go 1 more step to stay better organized
  17. I have some notebooks that I'm going to export because I no longer need them anymore. I'd like to be able to access them online. I have a VPS hosting account on GoDaddy. I know how to install WordPress on my directory but I don't know how HTML websites work for this case. Do you think that exporting some of my notebooks as HTML and upload it on one of my directories would let me see it online? I understand that i would need to create a domain/subdomain, and all that.
  18. I'm sure there's probably a host of answers to my questions, but please, I really can't seem to figure out where to find them. The question I want to ask is not the verbiage used by the community. Just point me in the right direction and I'll look. Here's my situation: Serious downsizing of my life and home office . . . from 3000 sq foot house to 300 sq foot 5th wheel. Business has been in operation since the 80's and has LOTS of file cabinets (currently in storage . . . not very accessable!) I bought a Scansnap and it uses Evernote (although not the Evernote edition). Bought external hard drive that has links to Googledrive (although it came with free Dropbox usage). Have been in a filing funk for the last 3 years since husband died although business still in operation. l need to get organized. I think I'm ready, but WHAT NOW? My question is that I have a meticulous filing system (normally . . . when I actually use it) and I don't know how to convert this to Evernote. Plus, does Evernote upload to Googledrive? Or do the files have to stay in Evernote. I would use Dropbox also, but what would be the point if I'm already using Evernote and Googledrive? (I like Googledrive's ability to work across so many applications, seamlessly with other things I do.) I don't see "Files" Just "Notes" and "Notebooks". I like to file 'like things' together such as hanging files for "Suppliers" and "Permits" and "Governing Authorities" "Employee Payroll Files" "Employee Information Files" "Payroll Liabilities". Inside these hanging files are manila files, inside those files are documents. When it comes to customers, however, the chain may include more in-depth filing. For example, a person may own a property management and/or restoration company and we also do work for their personal home. They may manage properties for a corporation, so there would be a hierarchy of: Individual Person>Business They Own>Corporation They Manage for>Apartment or Office Complex Location>Specific Job Address. I can organize things in Googledrive manually, but I was very excited that Evernote might actually read receipts and actually know where to file them once I had taught it and automatically tag documents with identity markers for when I'm looking for something. But, how does Evernote work with Googledrive??? Does it need to be filed with Evernote? Or can that program organize and Googledrive is the file holding tank? . . . along with the 5 terabyte external hard drive, of course. Let me apologize for my verbose way of expressing myself, but any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
  19. Hello, all! I just wanted to create this thread so that I can keep track of all the organizational changes I've made in Evernote. Hopefully, this will inspire others or have other people help in creating better techniques! Anyways, I'll begin. How Notebooks are Organized My mind works like a web like this. Everything is linked together. I created a whole bunch of stacks and added notebooks. Each notebook also has the name of the stack, dash, the topic of the notebook. It makes it easy for me to find what I need. ------------------------------------------------- Update Links: Tags Tags & Notes
  20. Is there a way I tag a note and have another tag automatically pinned to the note? For example, If I tag a note "German Shepherd" can I set evernote to automatically tag "canine" to the note? If A then B (of course, not necessarily If B then A). Thanks
  21. I want to use evernote to create an RPG world. In a real world there are objects. Objects have a number of characteristics that are made up of other objects. For instance a wizard is a person object, item is an item object, spells are spell objects and quests that he completes are a quest object. To organize all these different objects requires a logical file system. For the item object I would create an ITEM notbook. I would like to nest in that item notbook: ARMOR, CLOTHING, EQUIPMENT, WEAPONS, TREASURE and TOOLS. Then in the ARMOR notebook I would like to have the notebooks: LEATHER, STUDDED, SCALE, CHAIN and PLATE. By having this ability to organize in such a way, I would be able to store and find items, people, spells, quests, etc. easily. Is there a simple way to accomplish this or am i going to have to program this myself on my website and call it CLEVERNOTE? Thanks for all responses. Best Regards, Bryan
  22. I'm interested in cataloging all the books in my personal library (well over a thousand books) and keeping that list in Evernote somehow. What would be an easy way to get all those titles into Evernote? Is there a decent barcode scanner that would sync well with Evernote to make the job easier? How do you manage your personal library? Can you recommend a great app that might work with Kindle?
  23. Maybe this already exists in Evernote ..or maybe not; if not I'd like it to be a feature request. So the idea is that when I am working with things in Evernote there are certain types of information that I enter that get the same tags. For instance, manuals for products I am doing development with get organized in my Evernote account. Sometimes that kind of product gets repeated by the same manufacturer and so I'd like most of the tags to be the same except for 1 or 2. Well it would be nice if I could add the bulk of those tags to a group which I could then apply to my note and it would just drop most of those tags in without my having to type all of them in every time. We can think of it as a custom template or even a tag for the tags. Cheers
  24. Just got the beta of INBOX by gmail -- and IT. IS. AMAZING!!! I replaced Mailbox (iOS) with it. and replaced apple mail on my desktop with it. The video on youtube shows off the wrong features. Actually using the app for the PINNING (important emails) feature and for REMINDERS is a flawless experience and has kept me super organized. Anyhow, had to spread the news because downloaded it yesterday morning, and already obsessed w/ how much I like it here's a vid about the app
  25. Need the ability to NEST notes and notebooks; started abandoning Everynote as a result. Been using Evernote for a few years. Now using it heavily and tags aren't cutting it and wastes more time trying to organize and manage tags and stacks. Please do not respond explaining the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks. Keep the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks ~ just not at the expense of the nested hierarchy. No links to related articles, tutorials, demos, blogs on how to use tags and how to organize. ---- Keep the tags, but please allow nesting. Notebook and stacks, tags...aren't getting the job done. One can say it is mindset, need to change the mindset and adjust to a new way of organization. Spent obscene amount of time over the last 2 years trying to use and adjust to tags; reading blogs, best practices, research etc..even looking for 3rd party add ons, iOS apps etc. The more content added, the more content that gets lost... the larger volume of data the harder it is to find... must rely on memory for search terms, tags etc. Nesting allows an easy way to browse and find content. Also, you can train a group of people to work within hierarchy, but not tags.
