Updated 10 months ago

Introduction

I'm sure your have a notebook to track your workout program, your supermarket list, your affimation list for motivation, etc.

What's happen when you lost or forgot your notebook ? What's happen when it filled ?

It's frustrated to search in 5 different notebooks to find the name of a book or a music group or something else ? Now we can use a digital notebook where we can add files, images, voice recorded as reminder, rearrange pages, annotate and search. A notebook for life.

This digital notebook is Evernote and you have all pages you want. This digital notebook is synchronized with internet and all your devices with you can write, save and index it.

My guide aims to help beginners to become experts and learn some new tricks and advanced techniques to experts.

I'm not an Evernote's nerd but I use it everydays and I want to understand it to have a better use. I share in this guide what I learn. This guide talk about Window's desktop version and Android' mobil version and the web service. I'll talk about configuration at the beggining and tags with advanced research.

To don’t lost you, I have 14 words, key terms that I use a lot in this guide.

Database: This is not an official term and it can be replace by «Evernote account» but I use it to describe the entire collection of Evernote’s notes and notebooks.

Note: This is an element stored in your Evernote database. This can be a PDF, a text, a file from your computer, an audio file or the combination of the four.

Notebook: This is an element to store your notes («cooking recipes» can be a notebook’s name). You can hae 250 notebooks in Evernote.

Stack: This is an element to store your notebooks. This adds a level of organization to your notes and your notebooks (you can name a stack «medical» containing «insurance» and «archives» notebook for example).

Tag: This is a description linked with a note that can be used to identify several notes by topic. Each note can have several tags.

Clipping: The act of hanging contents from a source (web browser, an application from your computer, smartphone) and add it to your Evernote database.

Sync (or sychronisation): The mission of Evernote is to keep an updated copy of all your database somewhere on the internet. You can configure the timed interval.

Premium subscribers (orPremium user): This is a Evernote user that pays fee each month for extra features and the ability to add more data than Free user.

Shortcut (key): This is a series of simultaneous keystrokes to added a new note, take a screenshot or to search in your Evernote database.

Shortcut: This is a collection of notes, notebooks, selected tags that are easily accessible in most Evernote applications (desktop, mobile, etc.).

Saved search: This is a search request that was saved with a custom name and can be executed at any time with a simple click.

Reminder: This is a note attribute, when actived, it make the note at the top of each list of notes in which it appears. Reminders can also have an option of notification sent to a date and time set by the user.

URL: This is an Internet acronym for «Uniform Resource Locator». It's just the odd name for website address as https://evernote.com.

Everynote has a great team to make updates as soon possible. I’m sure when I’m writing this guide some elements don’t correpsond to the latest version of Evernote. I see that the majority of these changes are visual and don’t really affect application behaviour. This means that some of my screenshots may be different but functionalities remains the same.
