  1. Any suggestions for dealing with Note Conflicts? I will mess up and forget to close a document on one tablet and then open it in another thus creating a Note Conflict with a link to view original document. Would that be the document saved on Tablet A or Tablet B? I get confused just thinking about it... Is there a help topic on this or any suggestions from the users here? Thanks! Steve
  2. I've been an Evernote user for about 4 years now I think. Why do I still have to put up with note conflicts? I am *one* person. I am not ambidextrous so I cannot type on two computers at once so why is this a hard problem to solve? I am a programmer btw...so I mean this rhetorically...I know it's solvable. I use git every day and I get less conflicts with a team of developers editing the same files. I've seen countless upgrades with useless features and yet note conflicts are as bad as they were 4 years ago. Besides some visual differences I can't say the app has changed much in 4 years either. So is Evernote dead? Forgive the rant, but I can't keep a simple "Buying a Home" checklist in sync between two computers. I would say there is at least an hour between when I check the list between devices. Many times I am just looking at the note and whoa wtf I get a conflict the next time I look at it. Did they not sync in the hour I left the computer idle? Is there not even rudimentary "these two versions are equal" check? How about a line by line comparison and just highlight the changed lines...or for once do a useful feature to the very core of the app and add some git-style smarts in there! How could conflict-free notes for a *single user app* across his devices not be a Priority 1 feature request? Thanks, Colin
  3. Anyone experienced notes with a kooky creation date like "69," or had conflicting modifications in notes that you were e-mailing into from mobile (I was appending text to the end each time)? I had never even opened these notes except on creation, so how's that possible? Also, I recently did a *full sync* where you hold option and shift, then click sync. As a result of doing that, I now have 73 notes with conflicting modifications (only a few I was e-mailing into). I'd recently fixed some conflicts, but this unearthed an insane amount. After nearly ten years of heavy use, this might be the last straw.
  4. I just upgraded Evernote for my team so that we can share to-do lists for projects and such, but now it's creating all kinds of conflicts. Why? What good is this if sharing creates so many conflicts and there isn't a good way to resolve them?
  5. I'm constantly losing data due to syncing issues. Before I used to at least get syncing conflict info on my notes, so I could go back and find what I've lost, but no longer. It just disappears. This happens, for example, when I have the Evernote app minimized in my macbook, and I make changes on iMac or iPhone, then go back to my laptop. I'd like to see a better implementation of automatic syncs, for example, when an app has been idle for a while the sync should happen before any editing is even allowed. Yes, I know I can hit the sync button myself to force a sync, but I cannot remember to do this every time, and as soon as I've typed one letter, it's too late. There's no way I can trust Evernote for really important data, because I lose it too often.
  6. The current implementation of Note Syncing in Evernote is equal parts briliant and scary-as-heck! Here's a few recent experiences and requests to improve this VITAL area of the product! 1) Sync/Search Titles First, then Content -- Not sure how many times I've logged into Evernote and used Search to look for a Note that I cannot find. Its usually either a note I created on another device, or one my wife made in a shared notebook. I can understand why it might take a while to appear (ie hasn't synced yet), but do not understand why it takes *that* long. Most modern cloud apps are way better at this! Solution: In most cloud apps (think Gmail for example), some form of light/quick syncing is used (think LDAP) to sync the titles of emails/content, and then a heavier sync is done once the actual email/content is accessed. And background syncing makes sure the list of titles is always as current as possible. In short, one should NEVER log into Evernote and not be able to find all of their notes listed by titles in the order they expect. That window of time should be minimized at all costs. In addition, if a Note exists, Search should always find it. Period! Or at the very least have a flag that says "Some of your Notes have not synced yet, would you like to start that")? In summary, the list of Notes should always be current, and searchable, that should be your goal. Research Gmail for a better way to implement sync via LDAP style headers. 2) Manage Conflicting Changes directly -- I had a freak out moment today when an entire page worth of notes I typed on the train could not be found. The Note I was editing had conflicting changes (ie I had accessed it on multiple devices, and offline on the train), but the way that Evernote resolved these conflicts was "interesting" to say the least. When I viewed my note in the office on my laptop after connecting to Wifi I saw a version from Dec-12th as the primary content (content from a week ago), with a section at the bottom flagged with Dec-15th Conflicting Changes (a few days ago). In the note history I could see changes from Dec 18th (yesterday), but the content from today / Dec 19th was nowhere to be found! So I researched this on Evernote.com and realized that on occasion Evernote will create a separate notebook called "Conflicting Changes" that will contain other changes not placed directly into the note itself. WTF? Solution: Why do you have so many methods for managing conflicting changes? You really only need one. And why on earth don't you have a feature IN THE NOTE itself that allows you to manage all of the conflicts in a centralized way. Why spread this out into a bunch of different places and hope the user figures it out? Not to mention the layering problems with Paid vs. Free users, or Mac vs. PC, who each get a different experience. Please add a single feature in the note that says "This note has conflicting changes, please click here to manage". Simple. btw This Support Note from your website says it all: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314448-How-to-recover-missing-notes ("If you are this...", "If you can't...", "If you are on a Mac", etc, etc) This is a nightmare. You could reduce this page to a single paragraph with a better implemented feature. Lastly, I love Evernote. Use it every single day. So please take this feedback as constructive. As mentioned above, I know multi-device / offline syncing is hard (I was a PM for a desktop database app), but many modern apps have this stuff nailed. There are better ways, and I'd love you more for adding them!!
  7. I've accidentally noticed that one of my note includes conflicting modifications (see http://www.evernote.com/l/AHZfSH-hGvBDxrn62fjqOjqfiW6sv8YoCs8/). I had them before and each time resolving them manually was a very annoying process, in particular on iPhone/iPad. Especially I found that the note has about 13 copies of almost identical original note , some of the with the same time stamp. I searched discussion forum and there are multiple threads from people asking how to deal with conflicts, but no response from Evernote employees. I am suggesting the following: 1. As I understand, on some devices Evernote put conflicting copy to special new Notebook named "Conflicting Notes ..." Can this be done on iOS ASAP? I hope it should be easy, because it's done for some devices. It will avoid corruption of the main note( as I read, system added multiple copies and huge notes become unmanageable). Also it will be noticeable to the user that conflict with particular note occurred. In the main note just add a short message about conflict with the link to conflicting note. 2. If conflict occurs, it will be good to add a notification to the reminders and alert user the same way as other reminders do. 3. A message about conflicts should have a link to a help page, that describe how conflicts can be resolved. E.g. On https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/25197-howto-diff-a-conflict-with-the-original and https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/86113-how-do-i-resolve-sync-conflicts/ there are different methods, including Export notes as text and compare with diff tools like beyond the compare/Winmerge, Use comparison of ms word, Compare in excel. The thread is too long, so only relevant suggestions should be copied to help page. Unfortunately, all methods , that I've seen, are for desktop, and not for iPad. 4. And ideally the conflicting notes should have highlights which particular sections that are changed <<<local>>>>> / <<<remote>>>>>, similar how it's done in source control system, e.g. Git. I understand, that for not plain text notes it could be challenging and not always would work right, but it's better to have something, than leave user without any help. 5. Investigate the bug why the same conflict was reported multiple times? In my corrupted note http://www.evernote.com/l/AHZfSH-hGvBDxrn62fjqOjqfiW6sv8YoCs8/ there are 13 Conflicting modification notes : (67):Conflicting modification on 6 March 2016 at 10:59:19 AM: (93):Conflicting modification on 7 March 2016 at 8:51:15 AM: (139):Conflicting modification on 7 March 2016 at 8:53:03 AM: (200):Conflicting modification on 6 March 2016 at 10:59:19 AM: (246):Conflicting modification on 7 March 2016 at 8:51:15 AM: (292):Conflicting modification on 7 March 2016 at 12:20:43 PM: (353):Conflicting modification on 6 March 2016 at 10:59:19 AM: (399):Conflicting modification on 7 March 2016 at 8:51:15 AM: (445):Conflicting modification on 7 March 2016 at 12:20:58 PM: (490):Conflicting modification on 6 March 2016 at 10:59:19 AM: (512):Conflicting modification on 7 March 2016 at 8:51:15 AM: (558):Conflicting modification on 7 March 2016 at 5:22:20 PM: (605):Conflicting modification on 7 March 2016 at 5:23:47 PM:
  8. I currently use my first generation iPad (running iOS 5.1.1) as my work tablet. Primarily, I use my Windows 7 pc for Evernote, but I use my iPad at meetings or when I am out of the office. I use the free version of Evernote. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - My question may be related to using an outdated version of Evernote on my iPad, but I would like an alternative to having note conflicts appended to the bottom of the relevant message. Specifically and ideally, I would like to see: A new note created labelled "CONFLICT,"A warning message stating that the conflicting note is open on another device with the option to choose which note(s) should be retained,The ability to do a complete merge of the conflicting data, thereby retaining all new and deleted data, or (most ideally)A line-by-line comparison of the conflicts with the ability to choose what to keep and what to discard.Looking at the most recent version of Evernote, I do not see any comparable options related to syncing. Do such options/features exist?
  9. Hi Folks, I am using Evernote Free app of 5.6.4 version in my mobile as well as PC. I am facing a problem between my mobile and PC versions. Below is the description. I will make notes of whatever I have read at home in PC evernote (say 10 points/Lines as text). When I want to update this notes at my convenience(say when outside and not accessible to PC). I will do it from mobile (where data in my mobile is not in sync with current data from server as I have not sync'd it in past 2 days- say I have only 8 points of earlier said text in mobile), will add few additional points and I will do it offline. In this case I am updating my notes with additional content and when I sync it with server, the earlier data(10 points) is getting overrriden with the data of 8 points along with additional content which is being added offline. (here I am losing my old 2 points) Is there any way to identify the conflicts between server and mobile versions so that it could ask for a merger of both data (or) overwrite the server version before updating if there are any conflicts? I dont know if it could be solved or this is the behaviour. Please let me know, If any body could assist me. Thanks Adams
  10. 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
