As a Evernote user, I strongly suggest Evernote team to add the "mark as processed" tool to Evernote Web Clipper: Problem: When doing deep searches on the web on a subject, or verifying for updates on a subject, we get numerous pages quoting the exact same text. We need to read the full content of these pages to see if there is new information for us. Most of time there is no new information. What a waste of time!!!! I would be willing to pay 50$/year in extra of my premium membership to get a solution to that problem. The solution is simple. Here is a use case: User reads a web page found by google or otherwise. User analyzes all information on that page (including recent news and posts). User then clicks on a "mark as processed" icon in the search bar. From that point, every time that the user opens a web page, he knows at-a-glance what is the text that is important for him. The user is happy and happier on every page that he opens, because his search is going faster and faster. Here is some technical hints about the mechanics that the web browser extension would have to do: When the user clicks on the "mark as processed" icon, Evernote grabs all text blocs on the page that are longer than 50 characters and puts them in a database (It does not grab the URL). From that point, when displaying any page, the browser extension compares the page's text with all previously flagged text and it greys-out all sentences (longer than 50 characters) that it find in the database. The greyed-out text is magically what he wants to avoid re-reading and re-reading again. Users, please give your thoughts here. Evernote team, please let me know if you don't plan to include that tool soon. In that case I will hire someone to create that tool as a google extension, and I will sell it. Sébastien
***I invite all to respond to this, but please limit responses to votes either agreeing with these requests, links to the solutions to the requests, or directions to find either the direct answers or very good work arounds. The very reason I am writing this post verses finding this info in other past posts, I fear, is because there's so much aimless chatter going on.*** Hi all - Here are some feature requests that I find myself looking for / needing almost daily. This is going to sound like me complaining a lot, so let me say this upfront. I friggin love Evernote. I am a premium user that uses Evernote every day almost all day. It has quickly taken over any other program that I have on my computer as my "go-to" for almost everything. It's AMAZING. There, I like it, let's improve it. Requests in no specific order: Feature Request Voting If we could vote on proposed features to be included in upcoming releases (final decision obviously up to the Evernote Gods) I dare say that we may end up with a much more user friendly service verses a bunch of rarely used secondary apps. Don't get me wrong, love some of the secondary apps…but as Spock would say, "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." And I'm sure it's driven by $$$ and the need to attract new users, but how about we take the least used iOS app, kill it, and put that effort into improvements that include some basic needs Mark as Read This just seems like a no brainer to me Assign colors to notes Kinda like categories in Outlook. Maybe come up with some default category colors but let us customize those or add our own custom colors. Picture it, a notebook with 60 notes in it…all the red notes are involving accounting, blue notes are notes from client meetings, orange notes are general reference, etc, etc, etc. This would be HEAVEN. Archive Maybe an archive feature that allows you to EASILY & QUICKLY include or exclude its contents from the search features. I get TONS of irrelevant search results now because I have so many old notes that have no point….until one of my clients calls and needs me to pull something out of thin air while they're on the phone with me….and that very same client is about to give me my next project that will feed me for the next 6 months. Duplicate I know you can do the linking thing, but SOMETIMES you just need to copy/paste an actual note verses make a link. Haven't researched this fully, maybe there's a way that I am just overlooking. But if I'm overlooking it, maybe it needs to be more obvious. Undo I know that we have the back arrow, but I recently discovered that it really does only take you back. The scenario was when I accidentally dropped a note into one of about 20 notebooks that each had about 60 notes in them. And the worst part, I wasn't exactly sure what the note was titled & I hadn't added tags or anything. That's just one example…it may be rare, but there are 100 other weird little examples. iOS Safari Clipper (shhh, I know there's another forum…but if you use Evernote for Mac, chances are you use it on your friggin iPhone) This hasn't always been an issue - I created a bookmarklet in mobile safari that usually works well to clip mobile sites easily into evernote. Problem is that it has started coming up too large for the screen & will not resize. I've figured out that you can tap in one of the other fields & it will give you a "go" button that processes the clip, but then I have to go fill in all the info that is needed in the actual evernote app. There needs to be an official way to clip from another mobile browser that works well, period. OK, done with the soap box. Next up please? Toodles, Dylan
