  1. We, Humans, have been using cabinets, notebooks, folders, files and notes to store data for long. Why? Because this used to be the only technology we knew for it. However, It's not the natural way our mind deals with information. Our brain is a network rather than a cabinet. We need to quickly associate ideas, thoughts and all kind of information to be productive and creative! EN would become a killer if it allows more flexibility for outlining information. What about becoming more wiki-style, like some past programs (SeoNote, Treepad) or present services such as Confluence and Notion.so? By doing so, Evernote would allow teams to collaborate and share common places (not notes!) which could be actually workplaces or even hyperlinked Knowledge Bases (not a stack of notebooks!). I think this is the future of information management. I really want Evernote to embrace it.
  2. So I did a quick search and saw that this feature was discussed back in 2011 and it has not seemed to change. A colleague and I have a shared folder. He cannot add new tags to his own notes in the shared folder. This is a huge oversight! The option to allow this permission is a must. As a creator of the note, I need my collaborators to have full-functioning access. The tag system is why the lot of us are here. Search functionality is a must. If a user who is using a shared folder cannot create their own tags, they are excluded from exploring the full potential of a shared platform. I hope this can get support and ultimately implemented. The official response I saw back in 2011 was that this was not a feature to prevent a collaborator from "polluting" the folder with new tags... Allow us to determine whether that is a concern. By granting access to the folder we are obviously assured that they will contribute quality content. Mind blowing oversight, haha. Anyways... what does the community think? Let's get them talking about this.
  3. Hi guys. I'm sharing a notebook with my partner, but the problem is she didn't get any notifications when I edit the note. Neither do I. Just wanted to ask, is there some function for this team notifications?
  4. Hello! We just released Wave, a real-time co-editing extension for Evernote (and several other apps). Wave will let you edit simultaneously with peers directly inside Evernote, a la Google Docs. Currently available as a Google Chrome plugin, which you can get here: https://wave.codox.io/. We are still in Beta. Comments and feedback most welcome.
  5. One of my many use cases for Evernote is to store articles I've read or clipped from the Internet. However I find that I often want to make margin notes as I'm reading to reference later or see my train of thought. I'd love to have the ability to have a comment thread (like in a Google Doc) as a feature on an Evernote Note.
  6. I wish Evernote would learn from Quip, which has Chat built into every document, so it’s easy to discuss, revise, and reach a final decision in one place. This makes collaboration WAY more effective. Right now work chat between my 2 colleagues is just one long history of everything we've ever chatted about or worked on, with no context/connection to the actual notes we were collaborating on.
  7. Hi, I have looked around although didn't have any glory on where to find to share collaboration / tasks and assign requests to other people inside of EN. I am after the same / similar uses like Trello or Dotmach. Thanks for your assistance.
  8. Hey everyone. I have researched this on Google to try and find a solution, but it has lead to no success. My client has 2 computers in the front of his office. He calls the Front Desk, Back Desk. His employees work off these two computers to handle all the misc. tasks that happen at this front desk. He is an Evernote Business subscriber and all his employees have their own login for EB. I set them up a daily tasks notebook with a template of their daily task list in the notebook which they copy and create a note off of every day. The issue they are running into now is: 1 employee will be logged in and working on the task list, but this causes the task list to become unusable by the other employee. The other employee sees the icon of the employee who is editing the note as well as sees a blue box around the note (snippet view) with an arrow pointed up. While the note is like this, the employee who is not editiing the note can click the note, but cannot type or check boxes off. The funny thing is, when the editing employee clicks a different note and leaves the subject note, the note is still "locked", even after syncing on both machines. I tested this from my office to his (I am also a user in his group while we get him set up), and I was able to edit the note, sync and then he saw the changes immediately on his end. He then made an edit and synced and I saw his changes. I never left the note at all and we were able to "collaborate" pretty much in real-time (using sync) without any locks or blocking of editing. Any ideas on this? (Sorry for the long winded note, I hope I was able to explain the situation clearly). Sorry, one more thing... It seems as though if left alone, the note will free itself back up and become editable by someone else. But the timeframe is unknown and seems to differ from time to time.
  9. I wonder, does anyone know how it might be to use work chat to give comments and discuss with students in their shared notebooks? I am a premium user and have shared class notebooks with my classes, then shared another with editing rights with each of my students, and I have wanted to be able to just hit "like" or say "great, go ahead" or more, when I see they have uploaded something or are on their way with an assignment. Is Work chat my answer? I am testing it out with a few already but am not sure how it works, really. Anyone else tried this? I also wonder WHY Evernote does not automatically find the person I am sharing the note with as I click 'share' and choose email or, as of lately, 'chat' - wouldn't that person be the obvious default choice? Instead, unless the person's address is in my contact list (and honestly I'm not sure which one of my contact databases it is the program accesses...I am on my work computer, but it seems to be my google contacts) - I have to type in the address from memory or look it up. Just slightly annoying as is seems a simple thing to offer - maybe it isn't.
  10. Hi there, recently, I shared my notebook with my friends using "Public link url". So, I gave them link via IM in order for them to join my shared notebook. They said, they already clicked the link and joined my shared notebook. How can I edit permission and see how many people are in my shared notebook if I using "Public link url"? Thank you and I can elaborate more if you need more information.
  11. Hi all, We just released a new version of LiveMinutes (http://appcenter.evernote.com/app/liveminutes/web-apps) that allows you to collaborate on Evernote notes in realtime, like in Google Docs. As you know, when several people edit a shared note at the same time on Evernote, it creates conflicting versions. LiveMinutes solves this problem. Here is a video to show you how it works! http://youtu.be/FOxYa8NqRmc LiveMinutes allows users to collaborate on their notes in realtime, and everything is simultaneously synced back to Evernote, keeping your Evernote workflow intact. Edits made on Evernote are mirrored on LiveMinutes as well. We released this new version last week and we'd love to get your feedback! We really want to make this the best option for collaborating on your Evernote notes! You can give it a try at http://www.liveminut...s.com/evernote and let us know what you think! Alex
  12. Okay, so I'm not sure if I made a mistake or not in buying Evernote premium, but I wanted to figure out if it was going to work or not. And so it seems that it won't unless I'm missing something.. I just bought evernote premium for the purpose of sharing notebooks and notes. However, I want the person whom I am sharing with to have the same abilities as I do. That is to say, to move notes from one notebook to another, delete notes, have full permissions, etc... Does she also have to purchase a premium account to do this? If so, that's okay because I'm willing to pay for a service that'll keep my notes secure. The information is sensitive so.... Any ideas or should I contact customer support for a refund? I hope I can stay with evenote. Thanks!
  13. I have been an avid Evernote Personal (Premium) user for years, evangelizing to my friends and colleagues. I am in the process of evaluating Evernote Business (EB) for my organization. Everything I love about Evernote Personal is what I love about EB; search, sync across multiple devices, etc. etc, I don't need to tell you. The problem I am having for my organization is that we also need integrated business-specific tools. The solutions that we are considering alongside EB pale in comparison in every functional way--ease of use, searchability, integration with our existing tool set. However, there is one (big) area that is critical to business: communication/collaboration. I would love to see the following types of features: Comments on notes (thread exists)Set up reminders/tasks for other Evernote usersThreaded Facebook/Chatter/Twitter-like news feedWorkflow toolsYes, I know I can use bootcamp or something similar to get these features, but I want a single integrated tool in as much as is possible. Am I missing those features? Do other EB users agree? Are there any communication/collaboration features on the EB roadmap? Thanks, Len
  14. Clearly I have been sleeping, or I missed the memo, but several things that seem to occupy Evernote users' minds quite extensively now seem to have solutions waiting for them in Evernote's App Center. They're add-ins and some (all?) of them are paying packages, and I'm not recommending here, because I just installed two of them for a look-see; but if you're into sharing notes that need real-time collaboration and even conference-call discussion, and don't want that nasty "conflicting changes" elf to get in the way, have a look at LiveMinutes (they're under Web Apps - free for the rest of this year too) Or if you like Mind Maps (Me, me..) there's ConceptDraw Office which has an Evernote integration - apparently... The Apps pages are a resource I just opened like an early Christmas Present - there's other stuff in there that looks very interesting, but I do have to get some work done sometime. I've been a bit busy this year so far and clearly haven't been keeping up - apologies if this is old news; but before you do the standard (and boring) "the only thing stopping me giving you some money is" post for some missing feature that you didn't find in Evernote - check out the Apps pages! You never know, your Golden Feature could be there waiting for you!
  15. We use Evernote extensively within our team for note taking. One of the things that we have trouble with are when multiple people edit the same note at the same time. Today, this is resolved by the individual via a 'conflicting note' notebook being created and a copy of the note going there. This is really kludgy. It would be AMAZING if multiple people could edit a note at the same time, just like in Google Docs. Possible to build?
  16. Hi everyone, I have been reading through forum posts to find information, but figured I'd start a dialog of my own. I want this post to be a series of "Is evernote right for this use case?" questions. I'm really just trying to start a dialog with Evernote experts that are used to problem solving in the context of this system. If Evernote isn't right for any of these, I know you'll correct me. Or if Evernote is the right system for these cases, but we need to implement a notebook stack infrastructure/sharing/business library system that's different than what we have, then please feel free to point me to articles or tell me what we should be doing. I appreciate it. As it stands, we're looking to potentially implement Evernote in our business model for 3 things: 1. Process tracking At our business, we have to hand a single item off between people for them to complete tasks. Essentially this is equivalent to a routing sheet. One department gets the sheet, they check off their task, and then send the item on its way to the next department to do the same. However, these are all digital things, so tracking them is simultaneously difficult and important. Is Evernote (or any integration therein: Zapier, a trunk item, etc) right for us? 2. Collaboration Many times, we will type up things that don't quite require a google-docs type setting, but want to re-version and make edits to a single document. What we can't have, however, is little slip ups that lead to conflicting changes, or at least not frequently. Has anyone set up a system to do this sort of thing? For a concrete example: I work on an R&D team, and many times we finely craft an email as a group, adding details where necessary. We don't necessarily want to have a google doc, but would like to be able to look back at the email if we have to. Another example would be a coding style guide that we develop together. We would like to have a few people access the document for edits, and the entire company be able to see the document without editing it. 3. Communication We have out-of-office personnel that need to communicate on a daily basis with us. We have notebooks set up to receive emails with @notebookname specifications, and office personnel that check those notebooks throughout the day. We've run into a few issues here: The notes aren't named by default if the subject line is "@notebookname" The notes aren't signed by default if their email isn't configured to do so Once in the notebook, assigning tasks is a cluster due to diffusion of responsibility (4 other people can see this note, so surely they'll take care of it!) I know these issues sound like our users are children, but we'd like to implement our system in a fool-proof way. (Or as close as it gets) Another issue here is: once the out-of-office personnel have evernote clients and can just drop notes in notebooks manually, if they leave an area of wireless service, a response doesn't send, and an office staff member changes a note, how much potential is there for system error with notes syncing over eachother without alert (or even with alert?) __________ Again, thanks for your time. Any input on these items is greatly appreciated!
  17. Hello, I think it very interesting that 'Skitch' allow screen sharing as other whiteboard applications. The options of 'Skitch' are perfect for use as a whiteboard, but the application does not allow screen sharing online in real time, so I think it would be great so be it.
  18. I have 2 small businesses that I am transitioning to my children. Each business has less than 20 employees. I am looking for the most complete software that will help me manage projects, track time, build workflow diagrams, interface with Quickbooks and encourage collaboration. We are using Liquid Planner, but it isn't working out for us. Demo-ing QuickBooks PM service, but it is pricey. I would appreciate any guidance. Thanks!
  19. I am struggling to understand how sharing information in Evernote is going to work for me. I know this has been covered in many other threads but I cannot find any specific references to my issues. Please feel free to point me in the right direction if you know of any relevant threads. My situation is as follows. My wife and I are both Evernote Premium users and have a number of shared notebooks however we cannot see how she can put notes into notebooks I have shared with her or vice versa. When I select a note in my inbox and look for any notebooks she has shared with me I cannot see them. Similarly she cannot see any notebooks I have shared with her. We also have issues with tags on shared notebooks. When I share notebooks with her she can see the tags in the note but these tags do not appear in her general tag list hence she is not able to search on them. In addition neither of us is able to add tags to notes in notebooks which have been shared with us. We both love Evernote for our own data but the collaboration features would seem to fall woefully short of that implied by the advertising blurb on the Evernote website. From what I have read I am not the only one who finds the Evernote sharing functionality bewildering to understand and very limiting. Any help on this is much appreciated. I have raised this with Evernote Support by my experience of the support team in the past has been somewhat frustrating.
  20. I see that collaboration is available under the Premium plan. Do all collaborators need to be a Premium user, or just the user doing the initial sharing? TM
  21. Greetings, I teach science in a small rural high school (grades 7-12 in one building). Last year I used Google Docs as collaborative (small group) digital science notebooks. There are many features that I like about Docs, particularly the commenting feature. However, I do not have a 1:1 classroom and depsite my efforts to promote kids working together, some participated little in their groups. I wanted a way to better get kids involved individually, and thought if I included kids using thier own devices, along with those at school, I could make this more likely. The problem? The new Google Drive is read only on iOS mobile devices, which many of my kids own. So....knowing Evernote works on everything, I thought it might be a good alternative. I am one of those who downloaded Evernote at a colleagues's suggestion to my smart phone and never used it. I have started to play with it and am reaearching the web, so I have the basics, but I would like suggestions from those who may have used it more in this capacity or something similar. I am also concerned about the ability to do comment easily on student work, as they would be using the free version. Thank you!
