I was having trouble with my tags from the windows Evernote not syncing tags to my iphone. If I went into the note on my computer and made a small change then it would sync properly. This got me thinking about how can make a small change in all of my notes. What I then did was select all my notes and add a tag like "testing" to all notes. This was enough change and it synced them correctly on all my devices. In a sense I refreshed my data. Evernote should have a refresh feature in times when data isn't syncing right.
Hello forum, can any of you help with my query below in red? I have included a message from Evernote Help and Learning too spencer0i (my query) May 26, 19:08 I have a spreadsheet with multiple rows (150+). I need to create a note in Evernote for each row in my spreadsheet (150+ notes) but I don't want to do this manually as it will take ages. Is there a way to automatically create these notes from the rows in my spreadsheet? (This is an urgent issue that I need to resolve) Amanda H. (Evernote Help and Learning) May 27, 11:47 Hi there, Thanks for contacting Evernote support! At this time there is not a native way to create Evernote notes automatically from an Excel spreadsheet, the only way to do this is by manually copying and pasting the content. Some of our other Windows Evernote users may have created workarounds, or you can ask other users if they've found workarounds for accomplishing this on our Evernote User Forum. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions, and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Regards, Amanda H.
Hi all, I've had an issue recently with my tags appearing on my Windows laptop, but not making it over to the web version or onto my Mac. It's a bit alarming when you realise a load of your tags aren't there. Thanks to other members on this forum I found a workaround/fix which I'd like to share for others who might be having the same problem. I asked Evernote for help some 5 days ago but have received nothing from them... The first thing to do is not panic - your notes should ALL be there on your devices, just not some of the tags you've assigned to them. Evernote's main 'bible' record of your data can be found on the web version - so sign in there to see what they have and haven't got as compared to your own home machine. I found my Windows laptop had all the correct tags, but online and on my Mac the tags were not syncing this content through. This is what you do to get the Evernote mainframe to recognise your tags properly - from there it should filter out to your other devices when you sync them. Be ready to work on the computer where all your tags are present and correct Also sign into the Evernote web version to check your progress Identify the discrepancies with the tags between the web version and your home computer In the Windows version of Evernote (which I'll assume you're using) select the tag you want to get Evernote to register In the middle column, under "All Notes" right click on the tag and rename it. The way I did this was by simply adding the number 1 to it, eg "Project:Finance" I renamed "Project: Finance1" All this is doing is adding a placeholder for now Sync it and you'll see the tag appear on the left menu and the tag will now be assigned to all of the notes Now go through all the notes that made up your original tag and add the original tag (eg "Project: Finance") back to each of them Sync as you go You'll now have a placeholder tag and your intended tag with all the relevant notes within both Check over to the web version and as long as you've been syncing regularly you'll notice your intended tag and placeholder tag now appear with the correct notes Progress can be a little delayed, so wait until all your stuff appears in both tags on the web version Now go back to your home machine and delete the placeholder tag, and sync On the web version you should see your intended tag with all correct notes apportioned to it, and placeholder tag gone From there things should sync automatically to your other devices.Good luck with it all. It's a bit annoying to have to do this, especially when the whole raison d'etre of Evernote is the automatic synchronising of content across several digital media. I'm debating where to go from here, as now whenever I create a tag on my Windows machine I'd be in doubt whether it would make it to the main servers. Evernote - sort this issue out please - your service and product otherwise are amazing and remain my favourite organization tool!
Hi all, In the wake of the new 5.x.x redesign i though it would be good to make a place for people to share ideas on how to overcome the UI and productivity shortcumings delivered with the new update. Here is my tip on how to better manage tagging. https://www.evernote...363dc35827de07a Hope it helps you specially if you are using the GTD method to manage your evernote files. It would be great if we can get those features back so we can drag and drop notes onto notebooks and tags on notes all from one window. see attached quick mockup for my UI design solution https://www.evernote.com/shard/s82/sh/48e305fc-f3f3-41e8-b96f-e7496dc856aa/dfea4148a4a8b3b749fce125c296481e ta da davor
