(Archived) How do I drive this thing?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a new evernote user and am looking for some advice on how to get started.  I'm sure I can make things work but I am not sure of the best way how.

 

If there is a good beginner-thru-advanced guide please point me to it.

 

I use the android, windows, and web platforms.

 

Here are my uses I am interested in figuring out:

 

1.  Task management.  I use Michael Linenberger's MYN system.  I think I have this mostly figured out - I have a notebook called tasks and tags for critical-now, opportunity-now, and over-the-horizon.  I email tasks to evernote and use @ and # to get them ranked where I want.  I use the android widget or shortcuts to display the task related tags I want, and use the reminder to cause my over-the-horizon tasks to pop on the horizon when they should.  Am I missing anything?

 

2.  Use at work.  This one I have not the slightest idea where to start.  I am an intensive care clinical pharmacist.  Evernote is not HIPAA compliant so storing protected health information is out.  However there is still alot of data that I must manage at work that isn't tied to a specific patient.

  • I have scores lots of articles in pdf form.  These fall into two general categories - guidelines/review articles and studies.  Each could further be categorized by the type of article but there would be alot of overlap - so I am thinking tags should be used somehow.  Do I throw each article in its own note?  Do I have multiple articles per note? a notebook for each general category?
  • Instructions for my students and residents. I have several powerpoint & word docs for them to study as well as phone numbers to reference and general tips for them to review.  Currently I have these posted on a sharepoint site.
  • Ongoing projects.  Research projects or development of staff education, policies, etc...  Sometimes I work on these alone and sometimes collaborate.  Currently these are posted in a document library on sharepoint - I imagine I throw these in a notebook and share it as appropriate?
  • Useful links.  some links are external and some point to the intranet.  I want the link to have a meaningful description but don't see a way to do this other than a two-column table in a note?
  • Meetings/workgroups.  I make a notebook for each recurring meeting I suppose?

Thats good for starters - thank you in advance for any guidance you provide.

Salam/Hi all.

If you're new to Evernote, I highly recommend you, to regularly save your database file; in an external device, like an external hard drive or so.

If you have win8, you can use the "task scheduler" to create a task that does  it for you.

Regards.
