  1. Hi! As a chemist, I use Evernote almost everyday. I find it very helpful in keeping electronic copies of my research notebooks via the document camera. So far, Evernote has also added a whole new dimension to keeping a research notebook authentic simply by adding the location and timestamp to each note. The tag and searching features are also very helpful in finding notes that are share the same reaction, procedure, etc. There is one thing, however, that I think that would make things so much easier for me. My hand-written notebooks are usually not sequential. If I am running multiple reactions on a given day, it is often hard to finish writing up a reaction procedure, workup, etc. on the next sequential page. I would find it very useful, if Evernote could incorporate a "Thread" feature, in which one would be able to easily link the previous note and the next note from the current note you're working on (see attachment). Moreover, it could also be nice to be able to search by these "threads" so you can find just another way of grouping them together within one notebook. Workup_of_KBB0366__67_-5.pdf
  2. Hello fellow enthusiasts! I am a pretty heavy Evernote user. A while back I scanned every paper doc I had. Next I really got into the digital habit and except when I need to make handwritten notes (my tablet is not fast enough to use it for note-taking but I have the Samsung Note S on my wishlist!) I am paperless and use evernote for almost all my digital information keeping. I also am an artist and I collect vast amounts of information, pictures, clips, etc. In addition to that I'm a frick'n nerd and I've got things uber organized. I'm a premium user (not business) also. So the reason I am posting this is for some new ideas. I want to see what other people come up with for my organizational issue that I'm currently experiencing. I use Evernote for my personal life, personal projects, art projects, research, and for work. I have 2300 notes and they are all content that I use or plan to use at some point so I am very careful about tagging and notebook organization. My problem mainly is that I really need another level in the notebook tree. It would be SO perfect for me if there were Bookshelves, Notebook stacks, Notebooks, and Notes. Wow, that would make everything so much better. But there isn't and so I am trying to find my way around this. Can you help? Example: To-Do notebook stack - To-Research notebook In here, I have individual notes of things I want to research. I also have notes of lists of things I want to research. Ideally it would be: To-Do bookshelf - To-Research notebook stack - Tools notebook - individual notes Right now the tools notes are all mixed in with the artists and with the electronics and with the php code I want to go over, etc etc. I honestly just don't know what the most efficient / user friendly method of organization for this is. I have ideas. For instance tag with the subject, but I feel like tagging with the subject will get confusing. Partly because I could have dozens of subjects but also because when web clipping I'd have to already know the tag, there is no drop down menu. What if I can't remember the exact tag I've used? When I am clipping and tagging with topics I type and suggestions come up and if I miss one it's not a big deal but if I am using tags to specifically separate notes as an impromptu subject divider (in keeping with the notebook analogy) I need to use the correct exact one and I honestly can't remember stuff like that. Are there any features I'm unaware of that could help me? Has anyone found an elegant solution to only having this many levels? I feel like if I used Evernote only for art, or only for personal stuff or only for work it would be fine but because I need to definitively separate that content there are more limits in what I can do. In order to not waste a level I have made my stacks general and then I specialize inside. That is, I do not have 3 stacks (Art, Personal, Work), instead I have stacks like Projects and then inside there are 5 project notebooks, some personal, some art). I also have To-Do stack, Paperless Life stack, etc.
  3. Maybe an obvious one, but it just occurred to me that although a lot of my receipts are already paperless, (Amazon, and other online merchants) I don't organize those in Evernote. I have a filter set up in GMail that tags (or labels) incoming receipts or invoices or order confirmations with a receipt label. And that works really well, I can search GMail for anything that I've ordered online. But I was just thinking that maybe it would makes sense to consolidate that information. So I set up my GMail filters to automatically forward the invoices and receipts to my Evernote email address. The one thing I'd like to see is a way for those incoming emails to have notebook/tag info applied automatically. I don't suppose anyone knows a way to do that? If not, I've got a feature request!
  4. Not sure where to put this. I was wondering if anyone uses EN for couponing? I have just started using EN to keep track of things I want to buy but I was wondering if there was a way to keep track of the coupons that I have? Any input would be great. Thanks Shannon
  5. Can anyone share links to examples of how people organize and utilize their notebooks and tags? I think way you organize tags, notebooks, and how they work together is critical to staying organized - and mine could use improvement. I've read a lot of the Ambassador Tips and they tend to say "I organize my research in Evernote", but I'd love to see the details. Do you use a notebook for each project and sub-notebooks for research? Or maybe a great big notebook for all projects and then lots of tags to keep the separate projects organized? Or some freaky hybrid? I know there are a bazillions ways to do it and there is no right way. But hope if I see a few examples I can find a process that works for me. Thanks! Mashugana
  6. Greetings, This is a request for wisdom in organizing Evernote. Are there good rules of thumb as to how many notebooks one should have? Tags? Stacks? I have 2,000+ notes and growing every day, about two hundred tags and I just started using multiple notebooks. I have not used stacks. I am overwhelmed organizationally with EN right now. Since I speak and teach a lot, I am constantly saving articles, blog posts, etc. on a multitude of topics but also use it for members issues, administrative needs, personal items, etc. Even as I see myself using EN more and more, I also want the organization process within EN itself to be as efficient as possible. Thank you for any advice provided. I realize there have probably been quite a few posts on this before so feel free to point me to those posts. Tom. T. Ps. One particular problem I have it I forget the name I used for my tags when there can be multiple titles for the tag (e.g., an article on youth--should it be tagged children, family, adolescence, babies, child rearing, youth, etc.? ) . Thoughts on this too?
  7. It would be great if Evernote supported color coding for notebooks and offered multiple colors within the highlight function (rather than yellow only). This seems like such a basic thing but it would aid significantly in organizing topics and groups.
  8. This summer, I've made it a goal of mine to clean out and organize my stuff both physical and digital. As I came across my bookmarks, I was a little bit disheartened. Visibly, I had tried to organize sites that I found, but over time, that organization slowly slipped away. Was it worth trying to visit every site and restructure my folder system, only to watch it slip again? I've decided against continuing to use Chrome's built in bookmark manager. It was becoming a mess and I felt like I would work better with visual bookmarks. After all, I use this for my "new tab" page. Why not try and find something similar that could hold a ton of different sites? From what I've deduced, here's the pros and cons of using Evernote for bookmark management. Pros: Same amount of clicks to add a bookmark. One click to press the clipper, one click to confirm. I can tag my bookmarks instead of trying to go through a convoluted folder system. I can add personal notes about the website and my use of it. I can see all of my bookmarks in a thumbnail view. When I search for a bookmark, it searches through all of the text on the home page. When I view a bookmark within EN, I can click any links on the home page. Bookmarks sync to EN Android (it's actually puzzling why Chrome doesn't do this for the stock Android browser) If I wanted to, I could create completely offline versions of a website. There are easier ways to do this, but it's an interesting possibility nonetheless. Cons: Thumbnails aren't consistently visible on Android. I have to use yet another program. I long for integration. Not all sites clip to EN correctly. I can't default a view for a particular notebook. Every time I go to my Bookmarks notebook, I have to manually select Thumbnail view. I can't say I've officially decided to use Evernote to keep track of all of my bookmarks (I'm still in an unsure testing phase as you can see above). Has anyone else tried to do this and pulled it off effectively? Does anyone recommend something that maybe I haven't come across?
  9. However you want to phrase it, I see a need to enhance the “saved searches” of Evernote into something more dynamic that could be used to elegantly re-envision organization within Evernote. I’m thinking of something that is already utilized by anyone familiar with iTunes playlists and Aperture smart albums. You could allow for every notebook to have smart folders or smart bundles. Numerous potential criteria could be utilized as possible filters to dictate what is shown or not shown in relation to that particular folder. Items to consider for criteria: Note Date Range (any notes created between the following times) Note Name Tag(s) Media Attached Images Audio Documents PDF [*]Checklist Present (quickly pull a list of all notes with action item checklists) [*]Links [*]Location (by radius to a given lat/lon marker) [*]Location (by region... example all notes that pertain to a city, state, country, etc.) This could drastically enhance the organization potential for Evernote users with copious notes without having to rely upon constantly setting up search criteria or relying saved searches.
  10. Hi, One of the reasons I´ve not been using EN more often is because of its caotic organization. As time goes by and you add archives and notes to it it becomes more and more difficult to consult them. Obviously you can use the serach option but, in my case, I use lots of short memos and I don´t always know what to look for (sounds familiar ?) One major improvement could be an opttion to add templates. I often review restaurants, sites, wines, books, etc and most of the times the criteria I use is (or should be) the same. The problem is that as times goes by all these notes start to be recorded in different formats and under different criteria. Wouldn' it be great if we could create templates with these criteria and use them over an over again ? Not only would you stick to your coherent criteria in every note you write but also would be able to keep your wine, restaurant, book, etc reviews neatly archieved under the same format. Another option would be a save as option so that you could overwrite any privious note without having o delete it. Any ideas on this ?
  11. 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)
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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.

  15. 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
  16. 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.

  17. 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
  18. 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!
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. 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?
  22. 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)
  23. 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.
  24. 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!!
