  1. Hi everyone! Firstly, evernote Rocks! Thank you for this amazing app :-) I find myself switching between notes very frequently, some notes are quite long, thus scrolling becomes very time consuming. The workaround is to keep the notes i access most, opened on a separate window - Clutter's my mac's workspace, but at least keeps my notes open on the last accessed position Would be nice as default function, else a selectable setting under preference. Please work your magic and keep evernote rocking :-)
  2. OK this comes out of a recent Amazon purchase of 6 separate items, but might be applicable to other types of note... My normal process when buying something has been to copy the on-screen order confirmation and the inevitable email receipt(s) [I use PayPal] into a note with the title <date> - purchase - vendor - item so it's all together. Any subsequent emails get dragged and dropped from my Outlook inbox to the note via the desktop as separate little MSG files like this - ...the final delivery note gets added to the note and COMPLETE goes into the title. You'll notice the minor problems here - emails get dragged to the desktop before being added to the note; and the file date shows as the date it was moved across, not the date of the email. Don'tcha love Windows... But at least I keep all the random emails connected with a purchase out of my inbox and my Outlook database. They're more searchable in one place - Evernote - and double-clicking an icon opens the original email in Outlook so I can remind or reply if necessary. (I now have inbox zero on three of my four main email addresses!) An alternative would be for me to save each email as a separate note, and scan in any paper I receive, and then merge all the notes on completion. It would actually be more efficient to do this to individual emails and delivery notes rather than search Evernote for the 'control' copy and attach each element. But emails contain a lot of sales rubbish as well as the product and price details I need: and a merged note is a very long note (I've done it a few times) if it shows all the details inline. What I'm wondering is: if there's any review of the note linking process so's to make tables of content-style control panels easier to create manually, could we also get the option to include a linked note as an attachment so it's possible to open the content if required, but in normal views you just get the link / icon. I can already think of lots of potential problems with the idea, but if anyone else thinks optionally being able to see linked notes inline in the 'table of contents' note body would be useful, please show your support for the idea in the usual way...
  3. I have some very long notes, and i move between different notes. Whenever i come back to a note, i need to scroll all the way down to add text, or find the position i was at. desired behavior: If possible, allow us to choose if upon opening a note, the cursor moves: 1. to the beginning of the note 2. to the end 3. to the same position i was at when I last visited the note. Allow us to override it for specific notes or notebooks. Evernote is great - let's make it even better. Thanks.
  4. I downloaded the new WEB ui for Chromium Browser. I use it to manage my information and data through tagging. The old UI gave an easy overview and quick access to different. I have an extensive GTD working zone where I jump from project to project and keep track of my things to do. With the new WEB UI this becomes hugely impossible. Can I restore the old version please. I wrestled with it this whole morning and I am kind of fed up with it. This new UI, based on Tablets and Android.... , is very very bad . The key is "manage" your notes. Not "Enterring data". Managing notes is managing knowledge. I really really want the old thing back. M.
  5. hi iam a teacher who recently have discovered evernote... i am always taking notes in meetings, and would like to have all notes in my tablet or mobile, via evernote i have several folders in evernote to organize things, use web clipper, pending tasks, etc... but i do not know how to scan my sheets with notes, i have a htc mobile, and send them to evernote... i can not find any app that scans note sheets properly, and even my main worry is how to do a workflow and do it asap not to lose much time could you help me the goals are quite simple, write notes in a paper, (could i use moleskine templates to make it easier???), scan them with high quality, send them to evernote to later read them thanks for your help, any info is welcome
  6. I think I may be asking too much from EN to use it as my To Do/GTD system. As a little background, I've tried most To Do apps - Things, OmniFocus, The Hit List, Taskpaper, Remember The Milk etc. So far, Remember The Milk and Taskpaper seem to have worked out quite well. I'm also in the process of trying to dump as many apps as I can (I have far too many) and shifting as much as I can to Evernote. I already use Evernote for the usual web clips and I scan just about every bit of paper I receive. I also use it for project management to a large degree and for keeping a journal, making use of things like IFTTT to automatically send stuff to EN so I can keep a record of where I've been and what I've done. I'd love to use EN as my To Do list. I've tried various systems mentioned here on the forums and elsewhere on the web (such as The Secret Weapon). I believe all of the systems I looked at are pretty good - if you're sat using a desktop client all the time. I probably spend at least 50% of my time without access to my laptop/desktop, so I'm reliant on a good solid mobile experience (iPhone and iPad in my case). The Remember The Milk iOS apps are great for this, especially with their "quick entry" system. Contrast this with adding a new task to Evernote for task management (assume I'm not already in my "task note" for the purpose of this example): Tap Tags Tap the Tag I created for my To Do Tap the Note where I want to add my new Task Tap the icon to enter Edit mode Enter the new Task Click Done Wait for the Save to complete (can take an age on 3G) Watch in panic as the whole note goes blank before it does a re-load And sometimes (as was the case last night when I was out on a walk and had an idea - I added it to EN on the go over 3G) it simply doesn't save, so the change was lost. Contrast this with RTM: Tap the quick entry text area Enter the task Press Enter All done. Don't get me wrong. I think Evernote is the single best application I've ever used and, as a developer, I've used a LOT of applications However, I feel I'm almost forcing myself to use EN for task management. Am I missing something? I even tried use a really simple list app to use on the go, and then copying the tasks to the right place in EN, but if I'm going to use another app anyway, I may as well just use RTM. Perhaps it's just because I really need a good mobile experience for quick entry and modification of notes, and the current version of the iOS app really isn't very good for that. It's excellent for day-to-day general use, but then it was never designed as a task manager, so perhaps I'm asking too much of it? Nobody's forcing me to use EN for this, of course, but it would be nice to be able to do so and get rid of one more app. There are so many people here offering fantastic tips and suggestions, I'm hoping one of you may say "have you tried..." Any news on the rumoured official Evernote To Do implementation?
  7. Still looking for the perfect solution. Since I tested all apps I could find with EN integration, I'll share my thoughts and experiences and hope you'll add yours. Some brainstorming for future developers maybe? Why use a task manager when EN can do reminders and checkboxes? 1., Not all of my tasks are EN-worthy. And even if I wanted to keep my routine stuff in EN, there are no recurring tasks in EN. 2., Calendar integration 3., Priorities and such Nozbe Nozbe is a very stylish and easy usable app. I really liked the look and handling of it. Unfortunately, there are several downsides from the pov of my workflow: - Evernote integration consists of linking a note to a task. Evernote reminders are not fetched to Nozbe. (this may change soon, source: Nozbe forums) - No concise "all tasks" view - Finally, it is really expensive for what it does. Zendone The Zendone announcement in the forums came just in the right time, and on first glance, I was impressed. The workflow matches mine very closely - I use my EN "Inbox" Notebook to collect stuff, and when I find the time - every 2 or three days - I organize all the stuff I dropped in there to the right Notebook, with the right tags, sometimes with a reminder. However, after using it for 2 days, I found Zendone lacking in flexibility, especially: - Sometimes. I want to leave a note in my Inbox, because it will become an actionnable item again after the first action is done. - Sometimes, a note from a project notebook becomes a task - I don't want to move it to the inbox again to make it so. - With that level of integration, I would expect existing EN-reminders to be converted into tasks without further input by me - While clear and easy, the strict GTD integration makes the interface feel "restricting" after a while. It's still a great app, but personally, I prefer to move and edit my notes directly in EN. Remember the Milk I felt nostalgic returning to RTM - it was the first online task manager I ever used, and the site has not even changed since. EN integration is simple and clear: Make an item with a reminder in EN, and it will show up in your RTM task list, with due date and time. RTM does not "touch" your notes other then updating the title when you change it and setting the reminder to "done" when you check off an item. Tasks created within RTM do not interact with EN. This is basically what I want, but there are also downsides: - RTM is a very basic ToDo app - No subtasks, no status, no "next actions" - EN Notes are not shown directly in the app, just a link - No desktop app (and sparse web interface) -- So, I haven't found my "perfect" solution yet. Did you? I would like to hear what works best for others.
  8. How to set the time limit for particular apps like whatsapp/telegram etc., on windows 7 and block them once the time limit for that day is over? There are extensions in chrome like Stay focused etc., but they are for blocking websites after time limit for that day is over.. Please suggest some free application to do the same with windows applications Thanks in advance
  9. Will it be possible to design something like this- Having Option to view only Highlighted/Bold/Specific colored text across all the notebooks/selected notebooks in the evernote account in a Single Note? [ I mean importing all such content required in a single note] Thanks in advance
  10. Hi there! i´d like to know if there is any template designed specifically for plannig and tracking one´s productivity. For example, imagine you are doing a proyect in your company and you have to finish tasks every day or in a specific date. I´ve seen that some websites like basecamp or trello, have a very good and attractive desings for planning your actions, but so far i haven´t found a similar way in evernote, or at least a simple one. If anyone could tell me whether i can find templates or how i could organize my proyects it would be very helpful Thank very much Javier
  11. Hi There When I type I always bold some keyword or phrases in my text. When I have finished typing I go through every piece of bolded text and change the colour of the text this helps me with memory. I there any way this can be done automatically
  12. I'm trying to get my archive of saved links in Facebook into Evernote as well as new links that I want to read later, but not publicly share. I like to use IFTTT to automate things when I can, but it doesn't have a trigger for Fb's saved links. So, I figured out a work around: In Facebook, create a new Page, in the setup: choose any category, name the page as something like "My links", skip through the remaining questions except those that are required. Once the page is made, go to Settings and Unpublish the Page. This will make it so that only you (or other people you add as Admins) can see what is on the page. In IFTTT, create a recipe that triggers with a new post to a Fb Page, and sends the link to En: https://ifttt.com/view_embed_recipe/283889-share-a-link-on-a-fb-page-and-send-it-to-evernote Share new posts, or old ones in the Fb Saved Link page, to your new Page.
  13. Hello Evernote is a very good tool for me and I use it daily to gather my thoughts and ideas. While listing a few items today, it occurred to me that a MindMap tool or editor would be the perfect addition to evernote. structured lists could be derived from it and vice versa. Any chance of getting something like this? Regards Christophe
  14. Hi, I want a new shortcut, like "shift+cmd+F" to search within the current notebook, instead of choosing from a Search drop-down list, which is slower than shortcut. Thanks,
  15. I have seen many others post in the forums before on how they are using tasks, or why they don't use Evernote tasks. I have gone back and forth on this for quite some time. I think I have finally settled that my process in a work in progress, but one that works for me. I thought I'd share. Rather than re-post the whole article.. check out the post. http://www.torgersons.com/detailed-routine-using-evernote-for-tasks-and-tracking/
  16. I would really love to be able to define and then open a group of notes all at once. I'm not talking about opening all the notes in a Notebook. EXAMPLE: I may have a Notebook for Client A, for which I'm working on Project 14. I want to be able to define and save a group for all the notes related to that project, Then, I would like to open all the notes related to project 14 at one time -- from a Notes Group feature on the side navigation menu, or from (File/Open Note Group/List of Saved Note Groups). When that project is complete for that client, I could delete the saved group(but not the notes).
  17. Hi, I keep a different note within my "meetings" notebook for the many different meetings I attend. In each note I am constantly using the "to do" check box to keep track of my take aways from the meeting and what I'm responsible for completing. It would be really nice if there was a feature that could be turned on that highlighted any notes that had unchecked to do boxes. This would help to make sure I don't forget to go back to a note to see what I need to do. If it was highlighted or popped up some kind of reminder when I opened Evernote I would know I still had a action item from a meeting I needed to complete before the next one. Once all the to do boxes are checked off, then it would go back to not being highlighted/the reminder would go away.
  18. Here is an article I wrote about my workflow as a CIO, which is heavy in Evernote. https://educationaltechnologyguy.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-workflow-as-cio-includes-heavy-use.html
  19. I have a pretty large way of managing my tags/ nested tags. I begin by creating categories of tags - herein my example is "Tags by Partners" Then I nest tags within those categories. However one thing I noticed is that when I nest them with the categories I made, they are not organized or sorted in an alphabetic manner - And there is no way to organize or sort them according to my own preference. I am using a Macbook Pro - OS Sierra by the way.
  20. I recently discovered a quick way (though it may not be new) to post action items on Todoist using Evernote on my iPad for notes that I have captured and converted into actionable items. This is done by simply selecting the box with upward arrow in it and selecting Todoist as the app of choice. (It appears exactly like the one attached herein) I do, however, cannot find the same function on my Evernote App using Macbook Pro Retina. Is there a way to replicate this functionality, or am I just simply missing out something here? Thanks and appreciate your help! Cheers!
  21. I request a keyboard shortcut to search intitle. Currently I must type: 'intitle:' before most of my searches to get to Notes i specifically titled so I could find them lol. EG: I make a note called: work, & tagged: work. I search: work Other notes containing 'work' in their body appear before the one titled & tagged with 'work'. - I would prefer tagged/titled first if that makes sense? For now this dirty ahk does the trick to search titles (just made it, sorry if not working well for you) but it's not perfect and surely other people search titles?: !^e:: send, #+f SetTitleMatchMode, 2 WinWaitActive, - Evernote, , 2 sendinput, intitle: return
  22. I have a suggestion for how using check-boxes can be more handy. Check lists are important for me because there are always those critical, "must do", tasks to complete on a (sometimes) daily basis. So naturally, after I complete a task I check off the check-box that correlates with that task. Here's my issue: why isn't there a button or option to reset the check-boxes from "checked" to "unchecked"? This would come in handy with a chore list or a shopping list.
  23. Hi everybody, I have a suggestion for Evernote to implement, imitating the concurrent Dropbox, in the creation of task lists. Give your opinions, please. Open link with the question: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s138/sh/06596e19-8f45-489b-91e1-18359829a9ba/16ae4cc44c77bee6
  24. Hey all, recently Dropbox announced their new service that is still in beta and is being developed. Sites like The Verge and TechInsider posted some good overviews of what it does. But by checking out full dropbox paper review I noticed that Dropbox are getting onto Evernote's turf and might as well be dominating it very very soon. What do you think about it? Are you gonna switch? It's pretty power and all web based, so no clunky software needs to be downloaded.
