Hi everybody and Happy Easter!

Again I was wondering if there is a way to link a phone number to a note. Let's say, for instance, I create a note (with a reminder) to remember to call my friend Paul, so:

Note title: Call Paul!
Reminder: Set to tomorrow at 7pm
Note body: A "link" to Paul's number.

I know, by the way, I can write Paul's number directly into the note and this would make the number itself "clickable", but I'd like to be more quick and easy. Ah, and I also know that I can share Paul's contact from my address book to +Evernote but this would attach Paul's VCF card to the note.

Thanks a lot!

Hi all!
I am wondering if there is a way to create a note, via email, with a to-do list with multiple check boxes. I found some recipes on IFTTT, but they create a note with only a check box.

Thanks a lot!

Hi! I am just novice to Evernote, but during first two weeks of using it I have found it very useful.
However, I have noticed that the app consumes a lot of battery power on my mobile phone. Before, the battery lasted up to 3 days. After installing Evernote it lasts only about 18 hours. Where can the problem be? What should I change?
Thx for advice.

+Kelsey Tidwell For checking reasons I left WiFi on during night. The new EN Sync setting definitely helped and there was no battery drain. Thanks for your advice.

How to digitize your home stuff for free

Step 1.  Introduce boss to Evernote.
Step 2.  Wait two weeks.
Step 3.  Boss gets hooked and buys ScanSnap for the office.
Step 4.  Wait two more weeks.
Step 5.  Boss sends you to work from home for a week to scan all the office stuff into Evernote.
Step 6.  Use ScanSnap accordingly!

Some great tips on using EN for school! "Capture it All" seems to be the theme, something I still need to get in the habit of!

+Puneet Ghai. You may need to login into your evernote account via a web browser and revoke snote access. That will force it to reconnect to your EN accout.

Not going to compare it to Evernote. I'm going to talk about a mindset. 
 
Online Nomad-ity and Onenote

 > Some thoughts about Microsoft's latest moves.

You know what, I see the big deal. But I don't think it’s Oneone itself - at least not the stage it is now. The potential is in the new thinking behind it: Microsoft is finally growing up. Like a little boy screaming “me too!” and turning into adult,  Microsoft finally understands the world doesn’t work the way it wishes it would. 

As a Chromebook-Android user, there’s very little (if at all) Onenote can do that I can’t get somewhere else. People compare Onenote to Evernote left and right, because Evernote is to note taking what Apple is to computers and what Facebook is to social media. There’s one issue though: Microsoft isn't trying to sell us Onenote, it’s trying to sell Office, with Onenote  as an incentive. In other words, Onenote is meant to be the gateway to lead people into Microsoft Office. And you know what, with the new “play nice” mindset, they might succeed. With other people, anyway. 

The program was obviously meant to be used as the full-version in Office, Mac or PC. I didn't try these yet, and the fact that I have to in order to appreciate Onenote completely already tells me I shouldn’t. For now, the Android version seems to be more capable (or at least more optimized) than the web version. The requirements to capture ideas quickly are there: one click on a widget and you can record audio, snap a picture, or type something. These feature exist in any respectable note-taking app today, and do not stand out in any way. As a matter of fact, I’m thinking Google Keep is probably better suited for a Google-synced person, such as myself.
 
While Onenote should be great for formatting notes (back in college, it was my favorite note taking app for this reason), none of these features exist on the Android or the web version. Again, I understand that the point is to download the program to a Windows PC or Mac and use it there, but I use my Windows computer as a backup computer, and I’m not going to change that anytime soon. It seems many people favor OneNote going the Android and web way due to nostalgia and hope, not so much current facts.

Time for a little metaphor. 

Six years ago, I moved to the city and gave up my car. I never looked back. Even though I visit relatives and friends in the suburbs (and other states), I don't feel the need to own a car again. I remember how to drive, I can rent a car if I really have to, but the concept of owning one to get around is complicated and expensive. I understand what owning a car means for many people: their job, driving their kids to school, hanging out with friends. Owning a car is not a bad idea, but it’s a different lifestyle, one I left in the past, where I think it belongs.
 
I can't talk for people who depend on their Windows or Apple products, but that’s just it. I’m not a frequent visitor of the cloud, one that visits to check my Facebook feed and send a couple of emails. I’m a permanent resident. The idea of being tied down to a certain device or platform is restricting to me by principle. I use many Google products, but I do so just because they offer (in my opinion) the best cloud tools for my line of work, which is mostly writing. I use Evernote for what I believe they do best (organizing ideas), dropbox for what they do best (storing files), and Photoshop once a month for more complicated image manipulations. The concept of being tied down to one anything doesn’t make sense to me.  

Back to Onenote. As a person on the go, one that captures ideas everywhere and all the time (which means no data connection at times, resorting to sticky notes, napkins, or the palm of my hand), it doesn't work for me. Anything that ties me back to my computers or phone specifically is fighting a very hard battle for my productivity. 

I welcome Microsoft back into the real world. I think giving Onenote for free as a gateway to office is a great concept (capture ideas first, mold them into Office documents later). Further, their decision to finally reach out to Apple users and allow them to use Office products is not only a mature decision (Microsoft has been suffering from lack of maturity for a long time, if you ask me), it’s a vital business decision. I hope to see more innovation from them.

I like to throw everything in and then pick what clicks with me. Sometimes Google, sometimes Microsoft, sometimes somebody else. Working in the auto industry where it is literally a MIRACLE if two different vehicle lines share a common part, it's wonderful to me that we have the utility of so many different shapes, forms and fashions of software even halfway working together. To achieve the synchronicity that we most often do between platforms is sheer amazing.
I love the diversity! Microsoft Manchild is finally going (more or less) full throttle with that concept.

Anyone else?

I like the idea of the simplified article format in EN.   I especially like the way you can highlight text etc to show it as something you want to call special attention to.   What if you could highlight items in an online article and store JUST THE highlights in bulleted form along with the hyperlink?   I feel that would be a great way to do summary work and share just the high points with others without having to scroll the entire article.  I know that Diigo has this capability but beyond that it's way underpowered compared to EN.   Do you see value in this "outline" mode?

Another question about creating notes in +Evernote via email.
I know that there is the possibility to create a note with a reminder using the following syntax in the subject of the email message:

Note title @Notebook_Name!yyyy/mm/dd

My question is: is there any chance to add a specific time to the reminder? Something like:

Note title @Notebook_Name!yyyy/mm/dd  hh:mm:ss

Thanks a lot.

I have a pc with Windows 8.1. I am getting a popup telling me to ask my administrator to install the updates. Since, it is a personal account, I assume I am the administrator also. But, this administrator doesn't know what he is supposed to do!

It's an app that implements the David Allen's Getting Things Done system and smoothly integrates with Evernote.

Evernote is used as a Reference Material system and as a tool to collect new stuff.

Save Time Preparing Taxes With Evernote
Tax season is all year long
 
Preparing my taxes for my accountant this year was a nightmare. Despite having all my documents digitized, I did not have tax eligible bills, statements and receipts earmarked for the accountant. I spent hours hunting and pecking through my Evernote, Gmail and hard drive looking for the necessary documents I needed to file my taxes. 

As my inefficiencies became clear, I decided to reassess my workflow to optimize my tax documents going forward:

1. Where are my tax documents are coming from.
2. What is the best way to accumulate them for next tax season.
 
I identified a minor tweak to my workflow would improve my tax situation and save me hours year after year. Adding a step or two when paying bills or making purchases would ensure these documents will be at my finger tips next tax filing season and every tax filing season thereafter.

I share my workflow with you in the hopes of saving you time and money year after year. Because preparing for taxes is an on going effort throughout the year. 

Here is a link to my post: http://jmf.im/1hAtYEJ

How do you streamline your tax day preparation? In Evernote or otherwise? I would love to hear your tips in the comments below.

All great ideas +Barry Hocutt Of these, I prefer encrypted zip files, since most of what I upload is an attachment. Though I do use the EN's text encryption too. I make 1 very strong encryption password for all my EN encrypted text files and add it to my password manager. So I always know what I used and how to decrypt my EN text.

All of a sudden my note links copied using "copy note link" drop down menu is creating public shared links (www.evernote...) vs. the internal links as before. 

Is there a way to change this setting?

I had restarted my computer requiring me to log back into EN before this happened so maybe it reset something. 

I'm using desktop app for Mac. 

Thanks for any assistance.

+Jay Fogleman Thanks, Jay! That actually solved my original problem. Using the option key allows my to continue creating my own anchor text for internal notes.

Thanks so much for that!
