  1. I want things I scan to automatically get a tag for “student’s name.” Is there some way I can mark the student’s papers — with a bar code, or a checkmark in a certain spot, or a big number in the upper left that will get OCR’d — anything, really! — so that a corresponding tag will get applied to the Evernote note when it’s scanned? I’ve looked at some integrations (Rocketbook) but haven’t found anything quite there yet. I’m open to workflow thoughts, too! Many thanks, g.

    Changing tagging sign

    Can I change the tag separator from comma to another sign of personal choice? As we all heavy Evernote users know, many titles and "taggable" elements contain commas, and that invalidates their "pure" organizing. If we can change the tagging sign, that capability will be much improved, specially in incremental terms. Thank you for your time and attention on this!
  3. A wish list, I guess. I clip a lot of stories, articles, reviews – for research, or the basis for further work. This involves subsequent organization into overlapping and constantly developing areas of interest. I find myself wanting to be able to do two things: 1. Highlight and annotate text in notes. I know you can do this with pdfs, but I wish I could highlight text selections or add comments to things in notes – much in the way I might use a highlighter in a physical book or notebook, or scribble some comment in the margin. 2. Add the same new tag to multiple notes. My areas of interest overlap. I notice a connection between tag A and tag B. They're separate things, but there's an overarching relationship, so I want to add a tag C. Instead of opening all the notes with tag and tag B singly, and adding the new tag to each of them, I wish I could do this with a single action. Or two actions. Search for notes with tag A, add tag C to every note on the whole list of results. Same with tag B.
  4. Currently, there does not seem to be a way to undo a bulk tag change. For example, if I have selected multiple notes, I am able to change the tags for those notes in bulk at the bottom of the window (in the desktop client). If I, say, delete a tag for all of the notes, hitting Undo does not reinstate that tag for all of those notes. Instead, Undo just undoes something else. So, it seems that bulk edits to note tags do not register in the undo / redo history. The lack of undo has unfortunately led to some frustration. One time, I was viewing a bunch of notes by a tag. Say I was viewing by a tag which we'll call "tag1" (I click on "tag1" in the tag list). In the notes list I see: Note 1 (tag1) Note 2 (tag1) Note 3 (tag1) Note 4 (tag1) Now, let's say I choose Note 3 and Note 4, and add "tag2". But I change my mind, and delete "tag2" but then also mistakenly hit backspace one too many times and also delete "tag1". Now Note 3 and Note 4 are untagged ... and I have to go find them again. In the case of two notes, no problem. But when you're talking about a hundred, you can see the problem. The problem would be solved easily if bulk tag edits were part of the undo / redo history. This is probably a rare situation but I think because the potential for creating a mess is very big, I think it's important. Thanks for a great product!
  5. I am reaching out to see if anyone has the same interest in: Automation of tagging Example 1: if i put a To Do "Box" in my note it would be nice if a tag "To Do" was added automatically So i guess I trying to understanding if anyone else would OR has the need for automation within Evernote. I believe it would compliment the Evernote platform.
  6. Hi there, I know this topic has existed somewhere here, but I hope someone could help me out here, as Evernote may have since done a workaround. My question for this perennial issue is - Is it possible to automate the tagging system with newly imported doc? If there is this solution, am I able to 'switch off' the auto tagging whenever I want? Thanks very much for any suggestion here. Cheers. Ash.
  7. Hi, I ran into an issue today while preparing for a business trip. I will be without a PC for a few weeks and using my iPad. (Internet access will also be limited.) I have trip-needed documents in several folders on my work PC with (mostly) PDFs and .xlsx files, as well as a few other random formats (.pptx, .docx, .msg). My goal is to have all these documents easily accessible on iPad for my trip. I figured the best way is through the Import Folders function in Evernote Windows. I did this and got all the files into Evernote. These are all downloaded to my iPad as I utilize the "Download all notes" feature. So far, so good. Here is the catch: Not all the files are intelligently named, since my coworkers and I rely on the folder system within Windows/Dropbox as well as Windows search (which looks inside .xslx, .docx, and .msg, and probably soon .pdf) to help us find what we need while on PC. So we just name many files with names like "Report.xlsx", "Model.xlsx", etc. When I do a bulk Folder Import into Evernote, the files are imported without any tags. So it is pretty difficult for me to find, say, my notes on Japan Company #1 since, while this file is titled "Notes.doc", so are 15 other files from my Folder Import. It seems that, with the latest Windows Beta (6.4), you guys are somewhat addressing this on PC Evernote client side through built-in document search of documents like .xlsx. However, I still think this would be a good feature: either a default or an option to simply tag all files by the immediate folder they were in. So my "Notes.doc" file that was imported from "Japan Company #1" folder on my PC would be tagged with a "Japan Company #1" tag in all of Evernote: in the desktop, iPad, Android, etc. clients. This would make my workflow much quicker + easier when trying to find documents on my trip on my iPad while preparing for meetings. Thanks.

    Chrome Auto tagging

    Notes I create using web clipper in chrome have a tag already assigned to them. I want to eliminate this apparent "auto tagging." This started a week ago. I discovered one forum post on this issue that was closed though contained a link to a supposed solution, but that turned out to be simply the support page. Searching endlessly produced no answer, though I noticed requests for having the ability to auto tag notes. Well, it seems that EN already has it, but I can't figure out where to turn it off. Ideas welcome.

    Adding tags to shared notebook

    I have search to no avail to find an answer to this question. I am a premium user and am sharing notebooks with my co-workers. I found out yesterday that EN will not let my boss tag a note he created in a shared notebook with a tag that doesn't exist yet. I had to go into the note myself and tag the note. Is this correct? Is there a work around?
  10. Would like to extend your fast note process. With a shortcut a single windows which displays 1 line for writing a note, in which you can use # for giving this note the right notebook and + for giving the note the right tags and ^ for setting a reminder on the right date. After you pressed # or + an autocompletion let you easily find the right notebooks and tags. So, a possible one-line command would look like this: #mynotebook +evernote +forum +request ^06-29 Write a note in the evernote forum to get the feature for 1-line notes No, its not my idea. I am using the tool of doit.im besides evernote, because of this fast and easy 1-line note feature. Do u like it as well?
  11. Say I highlight text blue in multiple notes as a form of tagging text down in notes, does there exist a third-party tool that will let me see all the text from multiple notes (displaying like it's all in a new note) highlighted with that color?
  12. Hi, Is there a way to assing tags to phrases, sentences or paragraphs within clipped or copied content and then display the tagged bits according to the assigned tags? I mean a similar feature to what qualitative data analysis software does. Perhaps via some sort of extension? Thank you
  13. I'd be interested in a feature that would allow me to search tagged notes using a wildcard *before* the search key, not only after. Right now, I'm only able to use a wildcard to search for notes tagged like "science.*", which would return notes tagged with "science.immunology, science.pharmacology" etc. Why not also enable searches for "*.immunology"?
  14. Hello, Wouldn't it be great if Evernote could recognise bookmarks and clippings you've already tagged and made notes on?! Also via the Firefox addon button - let's say I'm on a webpage and I've added it as a bookmark to Evernote - but I've forgotten to add a few extra notes after viewing the rest of the webpage. Now, if I click the Firefox button again, it won't recognise that I've already clipped/tagged it and I can't see what I just entered, and can't make any quick amendments to it. So so frustrating... When I click the add-on again, I'd like to be able to make a few more additional notes real quickly, instead of having to go into Evernote and find the note, to make additional notes on that clipping. What else is possible..?! Thanks!
  15. I have some notes that contain (for example) only a PDF file. Is there a way to find only these notes and add the tag "PDF" to all of them (using f.e. the desktop version of Evernote on Windows or MacOSX) I would also like to do the same with notes that contain a .jpeg, .png or .gif file. Besides that I think It'll be great to find all notes that contain a URL in the metadata, this would allow users to add a tag based on the source of a note that was created with the webclipper by clipping a file from a certain domain (f.e. a jpeg file from the facebook CDN "fbcdn" or a file from Twitter's CDN aka "twimg") Suggestions? TYIA!

    Great iPad upgrade recently. Finaly it is posible to combine a normal text search with multible tag searching on the ipad after taking it away a couple of years ago. This is also possible on the windows version. Nou after manny years of asking I ask it again Please make this also possible on the Mac version. Then the Mac version wil be mature and I don't need a window emulator on my Mac or use my iPad anymore.
  17. Platform: Windows client Let's say you have a tag which contains multiple tags, like this: tagA - tag1 - tag2 - tag3 And then you select tagA. You will see all of the notes which are tagged with tagA as well as tag1, tag2, and tag3. Now, having selected tagA, you create a new note. This will create a new note and automatically tag it with not only tagA, but also tag1, tag2, and tag3. I have to delete all of the unwanted sub-tags of tagA ... This doesn't make sense to me. I think it would make more sense if when you have tagA selected, and create a new note, it is automatically assigned with ONLY tagA, not any of the child tags.
  18. I started to rely heavily on tagging after seeing what good it could do. I had long refrained from tagging notes because I knew how unreliable syncing was when it came to tagging. I realized this 2-3 years ago. Now I'm back to tagging notes and see that the problem remains and hasn't been fixed. I see tens of tags not syncing in my account. Why does Evernote do nothing about it?? I don't even bother to ask customer support, because I know it won't solve any problems. Yet my curiosity remains. Why does Evernote not fix it? I'm a user from Korea. Is this particularly a regional issue? Then what is the Korea team doing about it? I've turned from an Evernote advocate to an advocate of not even starting Evernote because it's such a bug-laden elephant still. Why is Evernote complacent about its major bug with tagging? Can someone answer? I'm not complaining for the sake of complaining. I'm REALLY curious and I think I deserve an answer as a longtime premium member.

    Other Tagging & Alternatives to EN

    Is there any way to replace Evernote's awesome hierarchical tagging system on any of Evernote's alternatives? Now that Evernote has reduced their "seamless access on all devices" to "seamless access on 2 devices", I am thinking of switching to something else. The main thing I'd miss about Evernote is managing my learning. I tag every note with: Discipline. Some things are multidisciplinary. For example, my notes on the book "Thinking, Fast and Slow" are tagged with "Summaries", "Cognitive Biases", "Key Mental Models", and "Education - General". I can easily synthesize my learning across disciplines and sources by clicking on a single tag now. Dates at which I'm going to review the material to ensure I really master it for the long-run. I'm going to quiz myself on "Thinking, Fast and Slow" on all the dates I tagged the note with: a few times in July 2016, once in August 2016, December 2016, and once in 2017. Clicking on "July 2016" tells me everything I need to review this month. Super convenient! Is there any way to do this on any of Evernote's alternatives?
  20. Hi Evernoters, I'm a church-based family worker who has been using Evernote since 2008. I use it to store meeting notes, logs of pastoral visits, sermon notes. I also have a resource library notebook of scans, notes, and web clippings on work related topics that, at the time of writing, contains over 1,200 entries. Despite this, I have never gotten my head around how to best use tags. I dabbled in the past but I ended up deleting them all in favour of a prefixing methodology. For example, meetings note titles always follow this format: YYYY MM DD Meeting: [Person/Reason (eg. Staff)]. This is all fine and good for meetings, but for my resources library, it is a bit more complex. Notes on specific biblical books or passages use the following: # Book Ch: Verse (Eg. 01. Genesis 1:1-10). Whereas articles, scans and clippings have a topic prefix (eg. Parenting: [Article title]. Currently, I only have two tags: '.CurrentBook' & '.CurrentSermon'. Long story short, I am not sure if I have posted this in the right place, and I know I'm not your 'usual' Evernote user, but could someone please help me get to grips with tags so that I can make the most of the mountain of notes and resources that I am compiling. Moreover, the larger my library gets the more I can't help but get the feeling that I'm not making the most of Evernote by using tags to link similar notes across notebooks. So yeah, if anyone can help me get my head around how best to use tags I'd be extremely grateful! Thanks in advance. Have a great evening all. Liam

    [Solved] Merge Tag Groups

    I have two tag groups - ie each group contains quite a few individual tags - my objective was to merge the two groups I was moving tags via one-by-one drag 'n' drop (Ψ) from group A to group B, when I ran into some sort of limit. Once group B has ??? (about fiftyish I think) tags I can't move any more tags into the group... but I can add a tag to the group... but there's a Catch 22... not with the same name as a tag stranded in group B Evernote can be a real PITA at times with its arbitrary and often undocumented limits Can anyone suggest a solution - apart from switch to another product. Hopefully I can restore the database from backup, and continuing living with the two tag groups... until such time as I find a reliable way to merge tag groups or I find another product . BTW - the tags in question are only used on a local database - not that that ought have any relevance.
  22. Hi, Is tagging in the free edition possible? It don't work with my account. If I dry, I get the message "Nur bereits in diesem Notizbuch enthaltene Schlagwörter können zu diese Notiz hinzugefügt werden. / Contained only been in this notebook Tags can be added to this note". You have a solution for me? Thanks Martin
  23. I'm looking to subscribe to Premium and would like to know, beforehand, whether it will be possible for me to tag multiple notes at the same time? I only use, and have access, to Linux PCs and Android phones. I have not found a way to accomplish this with Evernote Web or the Android app; although I'm probably missing something. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  24. The Problem When I attempt to add a new tag to a note (as in one that I haven't used before), ReadItLater for example, Evernote automatically modifies my uppercase 'R' to a lowercase 'r'. The list of existing tags that start with lowercase 'r' are in the suggestion list, but it won't let me create the uppercase 'ReadItLater' unless I arrow key left and replace the letter after I'm finished typing the tag. The effect is the same from upper to lower and ultimately depends on the contents of the tag cloud. The Solution When the user initiates typing a tag in the "click to add tags" location and the trie is fetching results, don't case fold the text that is being typed to match a list result. Exact matches would be fine and would still go a long way toward preventing duplication. The Case for Casing I realize this could be perceived as an edge case due to the irrelevancy for people with mature tag clouds, but I don't see that as ample justification to permit potentially confusing and/or frustrating both new and existing users that desire uppercase in their tagging system. Tags are, from what I can decipher, case-preserving but case-insensitive when it comes to search. In my humble opinion, varying case can be a powerful technique for separating concerns among other tags in the cloud, so I don't agree with other posts requesting all lowercase. The users and the platform would benefit from fortifying the case-preserving use case with a fix to the client that reflects the intention for tags to be case-indiscriminate throughout the entirety of the lifecycle. It's also my belief that this change would increase the tolerance of deviations in naming behavior, ensuring the perpetual utility of the platform. The Screencast: http://screencast.com/t/CLGoNlEd Thanks for your consideration, Ben Newcomb I would like either your blessing(you got a few seconds to help?), or suggestions based on your experience that will elevate the discussion. Does this sound good Mac users that want Mac level of attention to detail? I know there are many Mac users that are from unix backgrounds, so naming using uppercase just makes it harder on you at the terminal. Is that you? "I use lowercase", you say? Can we agree on a goal for clients to reflect the capabilities of a cloud platform? I use Evernote all day most days. It doesn't always bite me, but I'm growing/changing my tag scheme rapidly right now so it bites me every day. Please help me get this looked at by Evernote.
  25. Hi all, I am trying to create a workflow whereby a user can add a reference to an acronym (eg. "EM" or "A") within a note, then be able to search all notes for a reference to that acronym. My issue is that the acronyms are very common characters, and if I just search for "A" I will return every note as a result. My thought was to prefix the acronym with a special character, such as "#" or "@", resulting in "@EM" or "#A". When I do a search for "#A", however, all notes with the letter "a" are still returned. I want to avoid relying on the user to type the acronym in as a Tag, since tags are free form, and the list of tags cannot be restricted. If the search feature is not possible, I will rely on automatically tagging the notes via an API call that searches the note body for the @EM or #A reference, then tags that note appropriately. I do not believe it is possible to auto-tag notes directly in the application after reading through past forum posts. Thanks for any help, James
