Share Google+ Content Directly Into Evernote

All of your friends on Google+ are sharing tons of great content. Sometimes you want to keep track of this content, so why not capture it directly into your Evernote account? Follow these simple steps to do just that...

1. Open your Evernote desktop application and click...
Mac: Evernote Menu >> Account Info
or
Windows: Tools Menu >> Account Info

2. In Account Info locate your special evernote email address and copy it (you can save it to an Evernote note for future reference)

3. Login to Google+, click the Circles tab and create a new Circle

4. In the Circle creation dialog window...
Name your Circle "Save2Evernote" or something you will remember
Click "Add a new person" and paste your unique Evernote email address into the text field
Click "Add 'EvernoteEmail@m.evernote.com' by Email"
Click "Create Circle with 1 member" to complete the Circle creation process

5. Share Content: Whenever you want to save something to Evernote, simply share it with the "Save2Evernote" Circle that you just created.

UPDATE
Addressing some questions and points of confusion...

In step 4 - 'EvernoteEmail@m.evernote.com' was just an example. You need to add your own special Evernote email address. See step 2.

The Evernote service is not a human, so when you invite your special Evernote email address to join Google+ don't expect a response.
- When you add the Save2Evernote circle to a new item that you share, it will be blue, meaning it's private. Circles which are green are public.
- When you add the Save2Evernote circle, be sure to leave the box labeled "Also email 1 person not yet using Google+" checked. The "1 person" is your special Evernote email address. If you uncheck the box, your shared item will never be uploaded to Evernote.
See https://skitch.com/canative/fkjem/google-to-evernote

When you share an item to your Share2Evernote circle only, the item WILL appear in your Stream, however the item will only be visible to the Limited circle that you shared the item with. Since you shared it only with your Save2Evernote circle and this circle only contains one email address, the item will only be visible to you. If you have any doubts, click the "Limited" link in the top right of the item you shared.
See https://skitch.com/canative/fkjj8/google

The upload to Evernote is not visible inside Evernote immediately. Depending on your network it can take 30seconds to 2-3 minutes before you will be able to see the item in your default Evernote notebook. Also be sure to SYNC your Evernote account

:) That is just friggin' brilliant. Thanks for the tip!
 
Great idea, thanks for sharing. I created an additional inbox with my own domain "post-to-evernote@..." which is easier to remember for me. This one I redirected to my personal Evernote e-mail address.
 
did not work for me. Tried it twice and both times it was shared inside of Google+...
 
nice to know I wasn't the only one! :)
 
Using the Evernote Clipper Extension to Google Chrome, I just click on the TimeStamp of a post, it opens a new window/tab with the post, click the Evernote Clipper in the tool bar and it nicely grabs the proper article content and posts it. It can also grab the entire page, including comments.
 
I got it to work by "inviting" the Evernote address and then sharing an item.
 
Make sure you also have the check box marked that specifies to also email people who are not yet using G+, or it will never send the email to Evernote.

EDIT: This checkbox appears beneath your post and to the right of the"Share" button. It only appears if someone in those circles is not a G+ user (as your Evernote account would be).
 
Where is this check box, Nicole? I couldn't find it.
 
Stan, it's immediately to the right of the Share button, but the option appears only if you're sharing with a circle that contains at least one person who is in the circle with their email address instead of their actually being a Google+ user.
 
+Brian Caldwell You might consider editing-in the info in the previous couple comments into the instruction list. If one does not elect to "email 1 person not using google+" when sharing the post to their Evernote Circle, the post does not appear to go to Evernote.
 
And you still have to "invite" the Evernote address to make it work, it seems.
 
Don't think I invited the address, Drew, but I may have without noticing.
 
I didn't have to do anything additionally (such as invite the addy) for it to work. (Then again, the G+ team is tweaking little things so fast, that this could be new.)
 
Hi everyone. Thanks for the feedback. I have just added a few tips and images that should clear up some of your questions. Let me know if you continue to have any issues or further questions.
 
Hi Brian, this is driving me half mad. Every time I try to create a new circle by pasting my unique Evernote email address into it, I'm able to paste it in.

But this item:

Click "Add 'EvernoteEmail@m.evernote.com' by Email"

there is NOwhere to be found that particular line. Maybe I'm losing it, or maybe Google+ is quirky with my set up.
 
Love it, Brian. Thanks for the tip.
 
I found that the circle thing is not necessary. You can add the Evernote email "person" to any circle that you feel appropriate. Instead sharing with that circle, just share the note to that Evernote email "person" directly. Basically, it just works like DM in twitter.
 
An online service (with downloadable software for Windows, Mac, iOS, etc.) that lets you capture and organize notes (text notes, photos, webpage clippings, etc.).
 
Thanks. I'll have to look into that.
 
+Brian Caldwell I am able to successfully email the info I shared on the desktop version of Google+ but on the iOS app, I seem to have a problem with sharing it with Evernote. Any idea what might be the issue here?
 
the current iOS app for G+ does not provide a way to share, so I have no idea what you mean?
 
if I post a link or note using the iOS app and share it with my "Evernote" circle, it doesn't get sent as an email to my Evernote at all. However if I post something using my desktop, it gets sent as an email to Evernote. 
 
I see what you mean now. Based on a simple test this appears to be a bug, or un-implemented feature of the G+ iOS app and is not a problem with Evernote.

I tested by sending a post to several email address which I own outside of gmail and added to a test circle. The posts were never delivered. It appears that the iOS version of G+ only allows sharing to verified humans that are part of your circles.

I suspect/hope this will change once they get a chance to update the iOS app.
 
Sure. Thanks for verifying. Yes, it wasn't an issue with Evernote. I hope this gets resolved by Google.

Very Cool. Thanks.
 
New to both Google+ and Evernote, so this advice is most helpful. Thank you.
 
Slick. Data integration is king, and this helps a bunch.
 
+Ognjen Perovic Since you asked... one reason to share to an Evernote Circle is so you can click the Circle from the Stream UI and quickly see everything you have ever shared to Evernote, while remaining in G+. Of course you can also see this history from within the Evernote UI also...
 
This post will be the first think I save to Evernote using this awesome technique. Thanks.

Nice.
But i couldn't send tags via g+ post with the # (works fine with the @ for folder)
BTW I couldn't send tags via email title :-/
 
Nice one! Loving evernote!
BTW can you guys please increase the monthly upload limit? Pretty please?
 
But the google+ for Android is not the box("Also email 1 person not yet using Google+" )
What can i do?????
 
FYI - I know it's been a couple of years, but the above skitch links no longer work.
