Evernote Use #6- Share Regularly-Updated Documents

Not everyone I know uses Evernote. Shocking, I know. Although I don’t understand why anyone wouldn’t use Evernote, I am still able to use Evernote to share ideas and new updates with them very easily using the share URL feature for that individual note. Essentially, I create a web page, share the link, and then update the web page in Evernote.

Here’s an example:

I have the privilege of managing discipline issues at our school. I document all of the information in an Excel spreadsheet I save in Evernote. At the beginning of the year, I shared the URL link with our school secretary and our principal so they can view the regularly-updated discipline list. They bookmarked the link and can access it any time, and when they do, it’s the most up-to-date list available.

Below is the Evernote note I use to keep up with discipline documentation. I usually update this note every day.

When our secretary or principal goes to the link I shared, they see the page below. Any changes I make in my Evernote note will also be seen by them (once I sync the note).

If you have any documents that you update regularly and need to share with others, using a note’s URL is a great way to do that (rather than sending email after email).
