Notes vs. Notebooks vs. Stacks

When I first started using Evernote, I didn’t use notes, notebooks, and stacks very effectively. Throw in a few tags and everything just went crazy. If you’re confused about notes, notebooks, and notebook stacks, think of it like this:

Notes= Paper

Notebooks= Dividers

Notebook Stacks= 3-Ring Binders

 

Notes go into Notebooks.

Notebooks go into Notebook Stacks.

 

Make sense?

3 Evernote Email Tricks You May Not Know

Each Evernote account has a unique Evernote email address that allows you to email notes directly to Evernote.  The address follows this pattern:

username.#########@m.evernote.com

Your unique email address can be found by clicking on “Tools” and “Account Info” or by clicking “Settings” on your mobile device.

Desktop:                                                                                                      iPad

3 Email Tips:

1. Save your Evernote email address as a contact in your address book.  You’ll thank me later!
2. Email to a specific notebook. Emailed notes will go to your default notebook. However, you can email directly to a specific Evernote notebook by adding @+notebook name in the subject line (i.e. @ENG 8 Notes or @Personal).

3. Add tags to emails by using # in the subject line (i.e #Grammar or #Receipts).
.
So if you’re sending an email of your “Sentence Structure” notes to your “ENG 8 Notes” notebook and want to add a “grammar” tag to it, your subject line may look like this:
Sentence Structures @ENG 8 Notes #grammar

Tips for Creating an Evernote Account

To create an Evernote account, you’ll need to download the free Evernote App from your App store.  If you’re using a computer, simply visit the Evernote website to create an account.

Email:  Enter the email address you most use. This email address is different than the Evernote Email address you will be assigned later.

Evernote Username:  As a general rule, use your real name (or some form of it) when creating accounts that you will use to share information with others.
