  1. Note highlighted

    Hi, I'm sorry for my English, I translated from French to English via Google Translate... So my request is to have the opportunity to highlight a note so that we can better get used to it when working on a big project by immediately recognizing the notes that require our attention and those that seem to be not important in the 'immediate. Here is the illustration of my idea : Please, take into account, Thanks to all the Evernote team for creating such an application, I use it daily and I am very satisfied! ToniCSR
  2. Dear Evernote Community, Akreet is a new unique method for getting the most out of your Evernotes.

  3. Paragraph and Character styles

    Feature request - I'd love to see some kind of feature similar to InDesign's Paragraph and Character style functionality. I understand this might not be really considered as a good feature for Evernote in order to avoid feature bloating (too many features, leading to poor UX/UI), but in case isn't hasn't been considered, here it is! I was just writing out my notes for a speech, and I've been highlighting all the quotes from others I'm using in red, and at the end I wished I had done it in a different color, so now I have to go through one-by-one and change the colors. With Character styling, I could just change it in one place.
  4. Dear Evernote engineers, I love both Evernote and Onenote but I love Evernote better because of its simplicity and elegance of design. It started out with the elegant idea to help people "remember everything". Despite this, Onenote is full of features and functions for productivity. I find one of the features that makes Onenote very good to use is the levels of organization that it offers. If you could add a further level of organization to Evernote in the form of stack groups, then it should match Onenote in that respect. As I was using Evernote, I often found myself wanting this feature. Thank you for your consideration!
  5. Problem: I want to organize Evernote in such a way that I have as few root directories as possible, wich minimizes scroling. After using Evernote for an extended period of time I ran in to the problem of having to scroll through my stacks to find the one Im looking for, this is a tedious process on mobile, where searching for the right notebook is not as fast as when using a keyboard. Solution: My solution to the problem is to enable stacking of stacks. Think of it as levels in a bookshelf, where each level represent a different category of books. This would enable you to represent different areas of your life, making the select syncing process easier (say you want to only sync job related notes on your work PC). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Visual representation of "Stacks in Stacks" Bold text represents top-level stacks, which represent areas of my life "•" represents Sub-stacks "◦" represents Notebooks ■ represents Notes Education Highschool Grade 1 All notes for this grade Grade 2 All notes for this grade Etc.

What would be a good name for this feature? Shelves? Super-stacks?
  6. Here is an article I wrote about my workflow as a CIO, which is heavy in Evernote.
  7. We have numbering and bullets. It would be way cool to be able to collapse, expand, and move around branches of information a la an outline.
  8. I wish there was a calendar/planner type of system that I could link my to do lists to a specific day and possibly even move them from one day to another. It would be great to incorporate a timer and even alarm clock into the system. To be able to set an alarm for a specific day and time in advance that appears in your evernote calendar would be so cool. And the ability to have a link to a note in your calendar so as you are planning your day and need to pack, you click in your planner and it takes you to your packing list note. Also, could we have a little color? Who couldn't use a little color coding organization in their life?
  9. Does Evernote do this?

    Hello, I am attempting to use Evernote to organize my files and need some help. I am a pastor attempting to catalog and organize my past and future sermons. They are written documents and what I would like to do is highlight quotes, stories, statistics, etc. tag them appropriately, and have them automatically added to a master file of quotes. Is there anyway to tag and organize portions of a document without simply copying and pasting over and over? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks,
  10. Digital File Organization

    I'm sure there's probably a host of answers to my questions, but please, I really can't seem to figure out where to find them. The question I want to ask is not the verbiage used by the community. Just point me in the right direction and I'll look. Here's my situation: Serious downsizing of my life and home office . . . from 3000 sq foot house to 300 sq foot 5th wheel. Business has been in operation since the 80's and has LOTS of file cabinets (currently in storage . . . not very accessable!) I bought a Scansnap and it uses Evernote (although not the Evernote edition). Bought external hard drive that has links to Googledrive (although it came with free Dropbox usage). Have been in a filing funk for the last 3 years since husband died although business still in operation. l need to get organized. I think I'm ready, but WHAT NOW? My question is that I have a meticulous filing system (normally . . . when I actually use it) and I don't know how to convert this to Evernote. Plus, does Evernote upload to Googledrive? Or do the files have to stay in Evernote. I would use Dropbox also, but what would be the point if I'm already using Evernote and Googledrive? (I like Googledrive's ability to work across so many applications, seamlessly with other things I do.) I don't see "Files" Just "Notes" and "Notebooks". I like to file 'like things' together such as hanging files for "Suppliers" and "Permits" and "Governing Authorities" "Employee Payroll Files" "Employee Information Files" "Payroll Liabilities". Inside these hanging files are manila files, inside those files are documents. When it comes to customers, however, the chain may include more in-depth filing. For example, a person may own a property management and/or restoration company and we also do work for their personal home. They may manage properties for a corporation, so there would be a hierarchy of: Individual Person>Business They Own>Corporation They Manage for>Apartment or Office Complex Location>Specific Job Address. I can organize things in Googledrive manually, but I was very excited that Evernote might actually read receipts and actually know where to file them once I had taught it and automatically tag documents with identity markers for when I'm looking for something. But, how does Evernote work with Googledrive??? Does it need to be filed with Evernote? Or can that program organize and Googledrive is the file holding tank? . . . along with the 5 terabyte external hard drive, of course. Let me apologize for my verbose way of expressing myself, but any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Ever since discovering Evernote years ago, it has become an all-pervasive part of my personal and professional computing life. During that time, a feature I have continually felt the lack of (like a missing tooth you can't stop probing at with your tongue) is the ability to pin notes to the top of notebooks. As a writer who dedicates a note for organization on each project, it is a no-brainer. I'm sure would have great value in other fields. I know there are workarounds (the Reminder feature, adding to Shortcuts) and that if every suggestion in this forum were pursued, Evernote would be aiming at replacing every creative, organizational, and communication tool we use (Hey! That's an idea!), but this is such an obviously valuable feature and one I can't help to believe would be relatively easy to implement, that I puzzle at Evernote's neglect to seriously address it. So, Evernote, take a look at the changing landscape: If I Google "Evernote pin a note to top of notebook", I get over 700K results, the overwhelming majority of which (as far as I browsed the pages of results) lead to forums discussing the feature. If I limit the results to the past month, the first page is filled with headlines like "5 Alternatives to Evernote", "9 Promising Replacements for Evernote" or links to MS OneNote. This may seem like a minor issue, Evernote, but please note (!) the competitors at your heels, smelling blood on the trail.
  12. The Benefit of Using Tags

    The Benefit of Using Tags Over the last year or so there has been a lot of discussion about the benefit of using Tags in Evernote. Some users have completely quit using Tags, claiming they see no benefit. While I have given a number of examples before, a real world example just occured with me, that I would like to share with all of you. The Earnings Report for CalAmp, symbol CAMP, came out today, so I wanted to see what I had researched previously and saved in Evernote. So, I just did a quick search of "intitle:camp", thinking that should be good. But, to my surprise, I had a number of false positives. The Search returned Notes about "Boot Camp", a Mac system software, as well as Notes about camping. But when I did a search using Tags, "", I got perfect results. I had decided long ago to tag all of my Notes about the stock "CAMP" with one from my Evernote Stock Symbol list, which is Tags that all begin with "SYM." So, all I have to do is click on the Tag filter, start typing "sym." and I'm presented with my "Stock Symbol list". As I further type, adding a "ca" then Evernote autocompletes my entry to "SYM.CAMP". I hit ENTER, and I'm DONE. I now have a very accurate Search results, very easy to search for, and very easy to apply tags to the appropriate Notes. Well, this was a long story to provide you with a real-world example that literally takes seconds to use, and avoid false positives!
  13. It would be very nice to show notebook next to the note's title (with the respective "View option"), for example as "My notebook | 30/03/2017 | 1 KB". What do you think about it?
  14. Ok, So I am new to evernote and I was searching around for ideas of how to structure my evernote. I wanted to share wihte other new people and receive comments / feedback of how others use. My goal for evernote is mainly to have a core location for my important files such as taxes and other files I store in google drive Examples of using organization in Evernote (Attached is a diagram of how I have my evernote notebacks and stacks set up example, organize by year. The bellow structure is - Stack -- notebook -- Tags _INBOX (Default Notebook) -- All emails and scanned files go here, tag as need then move to appropriate notebook _My-Files (notebook) -- All files with Tags go here if they don't go underneath financial management Notebook Stack -- (Stack) -- Collection of notebooks for taking notes IT Notes (Notebook) -- Random IT notes work related or home go here John Notebook (notebook) -- Where random notes about things will go Work Related (Stack) -- All work related Notebooks and files go here My Work Locations Wife Work Locations zFinancial Management -- Stack ( I start the stack with a "z" because I want the stack at the bottom of all the other stacks Taxes (notebook) -- W2, 1099, 1095, etc... actual tax documents saved in this notebook Expenses (notebook) -- everything below are tags - Anything with the below tag will likely be saved in Expenses Notebook YYYY --- Will tag with the year plus some of the below Receipts Utility bills Medical Receipt Loans Bank Statements Credit Cards Budget Checks Tax Deduction ** NOTE ** Because tags above exist underneath notebooks this is just an example of showing where files would moved if one of those tags are added to it TAGS <<-- What I have so far 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Airlines Wife Backup <<-- I tag attachments with one of these tags letting me know I have the actually attachment backed up online some where such as Gdrive G-Drive G-mail Dropbox ME (my name goes here) Confirmation Number House Items Electronics Invoice-Receipts House A Expenses House B Expenses Kids Johnny Jane June Ginger Organization Notes Photos Receipts Medical Receipt Resumes Taxes Tax Deduction Travel Houses << -- Past houses we have lived in House 1 House 2 House 3 Utility Bills Websites Naming Scheme << -- Still in work Generic YYYY-MM-DD-category-company Documents tied to a person YYYY-MM-DD-Person-File_purpose/category Receipts YYYY-MM-DD-Vendorpurchasedfrom-Item TAGS Search for Notes missing tags -tag:tagname <<< this will show you all files that DONT have that tag name I am about to integrate into the above structure but I haven't yet
  15. I have some notebooks that I'm going to export because I no longer need them anymore. I'd like to be able to access them online. I have a VPS hosting account on GoDaddy. I know how to install WordPress on my directory but I don't know how HTML websites work for this case. Do you think that exporting some of my notebooks as HTML and upload it on one of my directories would let me see it online? I understand that i would need to create a domain/subdomain, and all that.
  16. Organization Table Size Edit

    Using Evernote Web. Want to make a template table and then insert it repeatedly into various individual notes. I found the tutorial on making and using templates. Good. However, all of the tutorials and how-to's say that when I click on the Grid icon for a table, I'm supposed to see a menu option for Table Properties. I'm not seeing that either with a left or right click. I get only a drop down visual that lets me select a few choices of rows and columns (not many) and no ability to adjust the width of the columns. What am I missing? Thank you.
  17. Another layer of organization

  19. Is there a workaround to getting a tag list? Is using SQL on a copy of the .exb file possible? I've noticed a number of posts on the forum about obtaining a tag list. They seem to dwell on 1) you cannot export or print a tag list in EN and/or 2) it would be a nice feature to have and will you please make it immediately or yesterday. It appears that none of these posts has yielded a definitive answer about a workaround. I have about 3,000 tags. That number is rapidly growing. I access EN two ways: EN for Windows and online in Chrome. I curate the tags in a hierarchy. I am aware that the prevailing consensus seems to be that tags are a superior way to organize one's EN content than notebooks, at least beyond some threshold volume of notes. But it has become tough to organize tags. My tags and their hierarchy are in continual flux as I add notes. I have about 35,000 notes. I continue to add tags and to delete and rearrange them. I am experimenting with the use of "special characters," ie., punctuation characters, to establish various categories. By "curation" I mean inspecting how the tags are organized (naming conventions and hierarchical arrangement) to be sure there is internal consistency. Part of the difficulty in doing so is that: a) there are so many; I can only see a small subset of them at a time; c) lacking an overview, I tend to have several curation and re-organization efforts going on concurrently and/or only partially implemented. d) these curation and re-organization efforts can be in conflict. The whole effort has become analogous to examining an entire landscape sequentially by examining parts of it through the narrow aperture of a drinking straw. But examining things sequentially can never replace simultaneous examination. I want to see all the tags. I need an overview, and to see their hierarchical organization at a glance. I am aware that there is no feature in EN to either print or export tags. Can I extract the tags using SQL? Doing so would not change the actual working file. I could use a copy of my .exb file (Windows platform), perhaps renaming it to a .db, and obtain from that renamed file a list of all of my tags. I recognize it is not good to go into the original backend database file with SQL tools. I would never touch that. It would be helpful to get even just a tag list, regardless of the hierarchical level of each tag. Getting the tags in their hierarchy would be good, though it's not strictly necessary. If you believe that it is infeasible to access the tags in a read-only manner via SQL, please let me know if you are aware of some other option. For example, alternately, is there some third-party software, perhaps analogous to VB for Office, or some macro-like utility of some kind, that would enable me to copy the tags successively, whether from within EN for Windows or EN in my browser, and paste them into MS Word? I am confident that it will be infinitely easier to manage them, once I have them in a word-processing document. I will be able to see the tags and their hierarchical position all at once rapidly, to grok relationships among them, disparities; similar, duplicative labels, etc. Changes to them in a Word doc can then be easily made in the original EN file. I would welcome any suggestions. That said, I do not imagine it would be helpful to question, why do you have so many tags? If you are thinking in those terms, please realize that you may be using EN for entirely different purposes and/or not have as much content. I have about 35,000 notes. Consider that the interrelationships among notes increase enormously as you add new topical areas. I want to track these with the tagging system. Nor do I imagine it would be helpful to ask, how can you use so many notes? Consider that, for the value that I wish to create, I do not need to use them all. Nor is it possible at the moment that I clip them to determine either exactly how I might use them or the likelihood that I will do so. Please realize that the process of capture with EN is often done intuitively, rather than with extensive planning aforethought. In that respect, EN is (or should be) not only a way of managing information. It is also (or should be) a way of managing how to allocate one's limited attention. Likewise, scrolling through a very lengthy tag list in EN for Windows does not support human cognitive strengths and inherent limitations.
  20. dynamic calendar

    First of all, sorry for my grammatical mistakes. In my opinion ,one thing will make a big difference on experience of evernote users: it is the insertion of a calendar. A type of calendar that when you insert a new note and especificate a time,See it weekly or monthly calendar your note,to remember you that you have a important appointment for that day. I think this idea will make a great impact on users,because it will create a dynamic and comfortable environment on program.
  21. Organization New Computer

    I have just purchased a new computer, and would like to move my Private Notebooks (not stored in the cloud, only on my hard drive) from the old computer to the new one. How do I do that? Also, is there a way to turn a Private Notebook into a Regular Notebook that DOES sync to the cloud? I use Evernote Premium. The old computer is Windows 8.1 with latest Evernote updates, and the new computer is Windows 10.1. Thanks. -Steve
  22. I'm a premium member because I use Evernote as an individual. One of the great concepts that's featured on the business model, is the ability to separate "Business" Notebooks & "Personal" Notebooks. I think it would be very effective to provide a similar feature to the Premium model, where users can separate notebooks per two or three main categories or "filing cabinets". For example many of my notebooks and notebook stacks are created for various clients, per my sales job. On the other hand, various notebooks and stacks are created per my real estate investments. Lastly, I have a group of notebooks that a all geared toward my hobbies and personal development. All of my notebooks and stacks, whether they're a subject dealing with sales, investments, or personal hobbies, are all grouped in alphabetical order in the left window column under one heading "Notebooks." It would be very effective to have an option to separate major categories of notebooks under separate headings or tabs; similar to what I would do if I were filing all of my notes in filing cabinets. I'd have one filing cabinet for my sales notebooks, another for my investment notebooks, and a third for my miscellaneous notebooks. I'm hoping this is possible to develop as I think it would help add another layer to my organization and also a feature to the premium model service.
  23. Hello, all! I just wanted to create this thread so that I can keep track of all the organizational changes I've made in Evernote. Hopefully, this will inspire others or have other people help in creating better techniques! Anyways, I'll begin. How Notebooks are Organized My mind works like a web like this. Everything is linked together. I created a whole bunch of stacks and added notebooks. Each notebook also has the name of the stack, dash, the topic of the notebook. It makes it easy for me to find what I need. ------------------------------------------------- Update Links: Tags Tags & Notes
  24. (first post!) Over the years, my children have made hundreds and hundreds of drawings for my wife and I. We always treasure them, but, have found it very difficult to keep track of them. Eventually, they pile up on the desk, get stuffed in a drawer, or lost and thrown away. Not anymore! I now scan them into Evernote for permanent keeping! As the day, or week comes to a close, I take any drawings my children have made, scan them into Evernote, tag them or file them into the appropriate folder, and then I can put it in a box, or even throw it away if I need to. When they're older, they'll thank me for it. I wish I could see drawings I made when I was young.
  25. I'm making this thread to work out my 'project' of building Evernote that is most efficient to me. Hoping this might be some help to other beginners who have run in to similar blockades of not able to organize your notes which hinders productivity. I've attached a screen of my current Evernote schema where I've setup a hierarchical tag structure that I worked through in a previous thread. Now this structure worked for while and I had high hopes for it but after a while i started finding it difficult on finding this that needed attention now. This caused me to revisit square one.
