Random thoughtage here - I have a variety of checks that get rid of notes that are past their sell-by date. It seems like a good idea to trim my database whenever I can - it saves storage locally and on the servers, improves sync time, backup time, search times, saves server real estate and stops me hitting that 100,000 note limit sooner rather than later*. I've scanned all sorts of things that have a natural sell-by date - instructions for things I no longer have, receipts and guarantees that are long out of date, notes and reminders for projects long dead. But how do I find them? Some checks work - I delete notes as a matter of normal business; when searches find stuff that isn't relevant; when reminders come due and don't have any other value than just the act of reminding. But the notes that I don't find - instructions for that automatic yolk remover** from decades ago that I never used; the 'test notes' that I keep on forgetting to kill after the event; the shared notes that were never read... So my request is for statistics. "Hit" figures (how many times viewed) for each note so I can see which ones I use a lot, and those which I never went back to after their creation. If we had a stats function, able to sort notes by number of hits as well as by the other current search terms, I could probably remove tens or hundreds of MB from my existing database and save Evernote from needing to buy another data centre - at least for a week or two... Hit figures have been requested before for internet views, and that would be useful for blog and web pages for the usual reasons. I appreciate this is a long-term ask, because it needs a lot of integration within a complicated product across multiple platforms - but it surely would be nice to have and has serious benefits for both users and developers. Thanks for listening. * That is an egg zaggeration: I'm on 17,000 notes after 5 years of 'active' use which suggests another 20 - 25 years before I hit the current limit and by which time 1) Evernote will have increased it and 2) I will probably have egg spired and won't care anyway ** yep - you're right - It's just an eggsample...
I like to share but sometimes I need to be more secure! Sharing my data stored in Evernote with those who don't use Evernote sounds useful, however is this funcationality any better than publishing the information on your own blog site and linking to that instead? I know Evernote provides a link which cannot be searched by the likes of Google but is that enough? The link can be circulated to any party without sight of who is accessing it. You could adopt a policy of only sharing data already in public domain. Things that can be done to improve data control. 1. Link expiry. If you no longer wish to share, expire the link. Currently doesn't exist in Evernote Business but should be a straight forward win. 2. Use certicates to encrypt. Present an access log to my data. e.g. Reporting back on certificate use and data decryption, when, where and who. The recipient of the link would follow a simple registeration process, create an account, access the data. Now if I no longer wish to share the data I can revoke the certificate and stop decryption. None of these exist in the Business product yet they would improve the security of the service.
