  1. Hello fellow note takers, I could need some input on my note taking strategy. This is what I usually do: See/read something Copy the link and make it the "headline" of a section in a note about a topic – if really important add printed PDF or web clipping Copy important parts of the note as plain text into the note Add my own comments or additional information about THAT section (note: not the whole article, but maybe a paragraph, sentence or particular information) Split with <hr> if closely related The result might look something like this: The thing is: On the one side I don't want notes that look like a flick carpet of fonts and colors* – on the other hand I'd like to be better able to discern between my own notes and the excerpt from the source. What I'm missing would be something like an indented quote formatting. * also this often wouldn't help but look especially strange, if the source is set in Arial/sans-serif, maybe with a different line height etc. This would make the note even more unreadable for my eyes. Currently I use italics. Because it is the fastest way via *Command + I*, for a while I used a mono space font for the source, but this takes quite long (and I always forgot which font I used). Writing directly in the clipping isn't an option for me either 1) because it feels to messy for me (and my experience with the web clipper in general is often horrifying) and more importantly 2) because I really just want the most important highlights of the source in my main note to be able to skim it quickly. Does someone have an idea how I could enhance my strategy here? Is there a, for example, a way to add own formats via hotkeys? I would appreciate any ideas!
  2. 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.
  3. 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 filethis.com into the above structure but I haven't yet
  4. Hi everyone! I'm new to Evernote and I was wondering if there was a way to add additional information to items my notes that are lists without cluttering the look of the list. I know you can add as much as you like to a list including photos, links, and long form text, and that a more simplified version of what I am describing could be achieved by insetting bullet points under the primary list items with the additional information, pics, or links -- But I make a lot of lists and some of them are quite long and complex, so I was wondering if there is a collapsable version of this that would keep the list looking more streamlined and as a result easier to brows through and manage. I will give two short examples to further illustrate what I mean as I realize I may not be explaining it well. Say I have a very long list of movies I love, and with each movie I want to include a brief summary and my personal thoughts. I wouldn't really want to clutter it by having the descriptions and my thoughts (which could be lengthy) initially visible under each primary list item. Is there a way to have sub-notes (I don't quite know what to call it) which, by clicking on any given movie would expand out? Say I went on a vacation and made a list of all the cool places I went to and all the great restaurants I ate at. In this list I would want to include pictures for reference but if I included pictures under every item the list would look very bulky and become unwieldy. Is there a way to expand and contract the photos attached to specific list items so that they are not initially visible and the list can appear stream-lined?Thank you so much for your help and thoughts!
  5. Does anyone have a template/structure/best practice of a way to set up tags so that you see the same expanded folders like you see when I set it up on my mac. The tree branch view on iPhone is different.
  6. We currently are on Evernote Business. 5 users are one it, all with admin rights, etc. We will be using approximately 400 business notebooks in the business library shared to each user, with full admin rights. Within each notebook will be 4 notes which we will keep our data organized. Keeping our data organized is key. I was able to backup and restore all the notes, however the notes simply restored in one big notebook, losing all of the notebook organization. I do have tags on each note. Is there any way to backup the entire notebook structure along with the respective notes and restore them in that fashion? It would be a tremendous pain to recreate hundreds of notebooks and reorganize everything. Evernote Business responded that their was no way to do this. We are all using Evernote Business for Windows Desktop Client. Thanks.
  7. I have two different accounts I need to access on a regular basis. This is easy on Windows, but to switch between the two accounts on Android, I have to sign out of one, then sign in to the other. However, sign out removes all cached notes and offline notebooks. My two accounts have 9,000 [2.5 GB] and 7,000 [3.5 GB] notes, respectively. Even with a fast connection, the time to resync that much data on an account switch takes far too long to make this usable. In addition, there are other problems. Sharing isn't too bad when dealing with just a few notebooks and tags. However, there are serious deficiencies when more data and structure enters the picture. My two accounts have completely different attributes, each with a couple dozen stacks, dozens of notebooks, thousands of notes, and hundreds of tags, all with hierarchical structure. I've been experimenting with shared notebooks, using about 4,000 notes, and have observed the following. 1) All notebook and tag structure is lost by sharing. This in turn totally disrupts the structure of the account to which the notebooks are shared. Tags, especially, become unmanageable. Windows carries forward the tags from a joined notebook, but Android does not. Tag search becomes impossible for Android, as there are none, and difficult for Windows because of the lack of structure. The tag hierarchy cannot even be reproduced as Evernote for Windows does not permit the tags from joined notebooks to be repositioned. Although Android does separate out joined notebooks from the others, though still losing the structure of stacks, Windows does not, and the shared notebooks are co-mingled within the existing structure. 2) Since sharing transcends platforms, i.e., I cannot share for Android only, as it really isn't needed for Windows, all shared notebook content is physically added to the Windows database, effectively doubling the database size. This elongates synchronisation times and search times. 3) Of course, every time a new notebook is created in the account that shares the notebooks, it must be newly shared. Then, each Android device needs to set the notebook attribute to offline sync. All of these problems are not unique to using Android. The loss of hierarchical structure for notebooks and tags still causes significant problems for the Windows platform. I suspect this problem has not been generally understood, and therefore ignored. Perhaps, if other users would comment on this thread, the subject would get more attention, and thus get addressed. I have only looked at the implications regarding Windows and Android platforms, but other supported platforms may present similar problems. There may also be issues with regard to using the Evernote Business offering. Oh, the ticket is # 536445.
  8. Can anyone share links to examples of how people organize and utilize their notebooks and tags? I think way you organize tags, notebooks, and how they work together is critical to staying organized - and mine could use improvement. I've read a lot of the Ambassador Tips and they tend to say "I organize my research in Evernote", but I'd love to see the details. Do you use a notebook for each project and sub-notebooks for research? Or maybe a great big notebook for all projects and then lots of tags to keep the separate projects organized? Or some freaky hybrid? I know there are a bazillions ways to do it and there is no right way. But hope if I see a few examples I can find a process that works for me. Thanks! Mashugana
  9. We recently transitioned to Evernote Business from the standard version and are struggling a bit with the notebook/tagging limitations imposed by the business version. We are accustomed to using a more traditional structured approach to categorizing information and documents. Trying to organize all of our business content in a single level of notebooks with only a single level of tags in each notebook is proving to be quite difficult. How are others handling this more restrictive structuring?
  10. I recently took a fresh look at how to organize my Evernote into Stack/Notebook/Tag. I couldn't find a good solution to fit my organizational needs. Use Case: Food stack containing Recipe and Restaurant notebooks. Food Recipe Restaurant Q: Where do I put a note titled "Food to Eat Before I Die"? Possible Solutions: Make "Food" a notebook and organize everything in a flat structure with tags New notebook under "Food" Make "Food" a tag and create new stack/notebook structure NEW FEATURE: Allow Note Stacks to contain notes. Open to suggestions ATM I am using a notebook called Food which is part of the Food stack. This is how I am storing notes as part of a stack while not necessarily tied to a uniquely named notebook. Food Food Recipe Restaurant I think that this solution leaves a lot to be desired since almost all of my stacks are going to require a generic 'self-titled' notebook inside of them. I'm accustomed to the GMail way of organization (labels). Do any experienced Evernoter's have advice on how to organize a note specific to a stack rather than a notebook?

  11. Let's say you have a lot of notes with some tag and want to further organize them by using note links to make an overview note, similar to a table of contents. And you would group notes there in any way you like and etc. Let's ignore the fact that you can't do it on iPad at all. (except using remote desktop app) This is what even the blog posts says about note links "Create a table of contents for a selection of notes. Whether you’re working on a study guide or planning your wedding, you can use Note Links to get ahead of the game. Create a new note and add Note Links for things like Notes: October, Notes: December, etc. or “Guest List,” “Flowers,” “Vendor Numbers.”" So far so good. You have made this overview note with note links and organized it all there really nicely. Now what you have basically is a tag which has an overview note with all its notes organized there and the notes themselves. It's all in a flat list but you have to look only at the overview note because all notes are there in the form of note links and are organized in categories and subcategories and what not. But then eventually you added some notes to this tag. And you didn't think about this overview note at the time because it was out of sight. Then after some time you go back to review notes with this tag. You see lots of notes in a flat list and also an overview/table of contents note with most but NOT all notes listed there. And there is no way to really check what's there and what's not. It's not apparently noticeable. So things get missed. And you don't even know. This basically means you have to organize notes in 2 separate places. One workaround I can think of is using an additional tag for each tag to hide notes which are already organized in some sort of overview note. For example you have tag "evernote" and then also an additional tag "evernote-organized as note links/organized in table of contents" or something. Whenever you add notes as note links to an overview/table of contents note for this tag you also tag them as "evernote-organized as note links". Then after a while you could go back to this "evernote" tag and do a search for -tag:"evernote-organized as note links" to hide all notes which are already organized in some sort of overview/table of contents note. This would make it easy to see if there are any new and "unorganized" notes in this tag which are missing from an overview/table of contents note. Basicaly this would pretty much double your amount of tags which is quite an incovenient workaround. Hopefully you understand what I mean... This is one and only reason I'm going to avoid using note links for "table of cntents" kind of notes which would have been useful otherwise... Any ideas?
