mac (Archived) REQUEST: Copy/move multiple notes to a shared notebook

Recommended Posts

One part of my work is to set up a workflow for my clients and organize their administration/documents. Part of their administration are paper invoices, receipts, etc. I'll scan them, save them to Evernote where they automatically go to my own inbox (I can't set a shared notebook as the default notebook - not even temporarily).

I'm able to copy 1 note from my inbox to a shared notebook, but selecting more than 1 note makes the shared notebooks grey in the drop down menu and leaves me unable to copy more than 1. Moving to a shared notebook is not even possible with 1 note.

I now have 29 notes sitting in my own inbox which I'll now have to copy 1 by 1 (!) to that shared notebook. Not very efficient it seems...

Patty, Evernote might not be the best tool for file management.

You may want to consider DropBox (or similar) service.

Many of the scanning systems offer an OCR option. If they don't, then many of the PDF programs also offer OCR.

I haven't tested this, but I believe the new Google Drive will also OCR PDF files.

It already does.

Hi Patty, thanks for posting! We're working very hard to improve the sharing experience in Evernote. This feedback is super helpful and gives us a use-case to test against. Keep your clients updated and let us know if you run across any other pain points.
