Hi all, I am currently having an issue with the searchability of documents when using the Scansnap Cloud service. I am currently using an Scansnap ix500 scanner. WHEN I DO USE SCANSNAP CLOUD (WIRELESS) Currently, I have Scansnap Cloud set up such that all documents go straight to Evernote (as can be seen in the first attached picture). However, when the documents arrive in Evernote, they are not searchable/OCR'd. WHEN I DON"T USE SCANSNAP CLOUD (WIRED) When I have a wired connection and send the documents to Evernote through Scansnap's "quick menu" (from the included software CD - see the second attached picture), the documents arrive in Evernote and are indeed searchable (OCR'd). Why am I having this issue? At first, I though that the WIRED option runs the OCR on my computer and THEN sends it to Evernote (whereas under the WIRELESS option there may be no OCR on the Scansnap Cloud server side before it is sent to Evernote). However, doesn't Evernote have OCR capabilities on their end as well (and so it shouldn't matter whether the document has been "pre OCR'd" before arriving)? Or is OCR only a premium feature?
Haven't seen how to do this, holler if I missed it. I've been relying on Evernote for years but now I want to dig even deeper. I want to use Evernote to capture those silly paper (ugh!) receipts and then toss them. Bingo, Evernote for Android has the "page camera" for photographic documents. It works just fine. Excellently, in fact. Taking pictures of receipts works extremely well. Except.... Except that it's a laborious (relatively speaking, first-world problem here) task of umpteen taps to do it. 1) Tap the Evernote shortcut widget I created on Android to launch doc/page camera (handy so far--goes right to page cam). 2) Tap anywhere on screen to dismiss the silly "Try it! Get started!" welcome splash screen that displays...Every. Single. Time. (At least on new launches). Not sure why I need to be "welcomed" forever. 3) Take a picture--works wondefully. 4) Tap the checkmark icon to finish. OK, not a problem, can live with that, is fast. 5) Now select the "..." button back on the resulting note. 6) Now choose the "receipts" notebook and tap it. 7) Now tap the checkmark icon on the note to finish. Can I live with this? You bet--I still think I'll be moving to exclusive Evernote capture, on my Samsung GS3, of receipts. Love it. But could REALLY love it if it went like this: 1) Tap the Evernote widget shortcut specially created by this new feature. 2) Doc cam launches, no repetitive "welcome! try it!" splash screen, just right to cam, ready to snap a shot. 3) Snap the shot, tap the "checkmark" to conclude image capture. 4) Tap the checkmark back on the resulting note, DONE. That is, the widget was preconfigured to launch a doc cam (receipt cam) with: 1) Notebook already set to "receipts" (my choosing) 2) Cam ready to go, no splash screen repetitive first-time (?) welcome. Seems like this could enable a guy to capture receipts so fast that....um, it'd be super fast. NOTE: I'm not saying I want my "receipts" notebook to be my default notebook on Android for all notes--I do NOT want that. I'm saying a widget could be configured to launch a special doc cam config that will save right into a certain notebook, done, no tapping around required. I could have that right on my Android home screen and wham-bam capture receipt images INTO THE RECEIPTS NOTEBOOK with about 3 taps. Yum?
I’m a fan of Evernote and use it for everything from organizing notes to saving web clippings. One major use has been to store all of my product receipts (both scanned directly into Evernote and saved online receipts) that I want to keep for future reference. I find it easy to upload receipts (mostly large purchases like electronics and major appliances) and also like the receipt search functionality, but like most documents stored inside a folder structure, it has a big limitation. It’s impossible to spread all receipts in one view and get an overview of all of your products and use the information from inside the receipts (warranty dates, etc) proactively. So when I want to check my catalog of products and use the information from inside the receipts, I find myself missing the ‘index card’ view (think Pinterest’s boards) with all product information in one place. In an attempt to solve the above, we’ve developed a web application called Unioncy. In short, Unioncy is an appliance management platform that automatically builds a catalog of your purchases and stores all product documentation and information (manuals, receipts, purchase details, serial no., etc.) in one place in the cloud. On top of the catalog, sits a helpful set of features, like warranty and product recall tracking. We're now very excited about an integration with Evernote to offer a simple way to get more out of the receipts that we like to store in Evernote and automatically turn them into digital “product cards”. We’ve released an early version of Unioncy and we recognize that we are far from perfect, so it would be great to hear some feedback in order to try and shape the product in a way that the Evernote community finds useful. Also, any thoughts on how you would like to see the integration work between Unioncy and Evernote would be much appreciated. You can now create a beta account on http://www.unioncy.com/ to see how it works. If you would like to privately share feedback please email me at email@example.com Thanks!
Hi all, Im using evernote to go paperless anytime soon. but the most important task for me in my small business is collecting receipts of credit card payments. my accountant needs these statements with all receipts connected to it. but these exists of scanned pdf's of receipts or paper invoices and clipped email notes. when i export these the clipped emails do not get exported well. What i currently do is. My statements are per month. so i made a tag "cc 09-2013" that stands for credit card september 2013. works amazingly well. i got everything from 03-2013 to 09-2013 in there already. CloudHQ is something i tried, but therefor it needs to be in a seperate notbook, and if needed i will do that but if there is a better solution that would be amazing.
