windows Can I lock my note?

12 posts in this topic

Hi ,

sometimes, I only want to read the content of my note, so I want't edit it, but sometimes may have misopertion, and evernote auto update.

Can I lock some notebook or one note?

Hi. Welcome to the forums.

Technically speaking, dlu is correct. However, in practice, locking notes is quite easy to do. One workaround is to create a separate account and put notes and notebooks you don't want edited into it. Share the notebooks with your main account, and you can still search and read them just like normal, but (unless you give yourself modification privileges), they are (for all intents and purposes) locked.

It sounds more cumbersome than it is. Premium users can easily switch back and forth among multiple accounts. And, free users can email notes they want to have "locked" into their second account (remember, you can even designate the tags and notebooks for the notes). When you are done with a note and want to preserve it, just email it. This is a great solution for "archiving" your notes.

And if one is tech savvy, they could play around with the enex file of the note. I know there is a way under the hood to lock notes b/c my notes sent to EN from Skitch on iPad are write protected. But I've not had the inclination to delve further into how it's done. But I'd guess you could easily make a script that would lock a note, if you were so inclined.

You really don't need to go through all of the forum topics and +1 all of them that request note locking. The Evernote staff are aware of the request.

This is an older post, but I'd love this feature as well. Several times I've been in a document and accidentally deleted a file or a selection of text accidentally.

I have Evernote business and being the project manager there are some notes that I would like to remove my co-workers editing access on. I see this is an older post but might have been something Evernote has updated since then.

Evernote has no read-only feature for notes

As an alternative, you could convert your note to pdf format

This would be better taken up in the Evernote Business forum over here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/277-business-help/

You can share notes and notebooks with view only permissions. See the "Set Permission Levels" section of this article for more info. Additionally, as a Evernote Business Admin, you can manage notebook permissions from your admin console
