Evernote Software


 

Evernote is a Web-based project management tool that offers project collaboration, scheduling and task management functionalities within a suite. This solution is designed for companies of all sizes.

Evernote allows users to create project task lists and assign them people so team members can collaborate and give status updates when required. This solution supports multiple devices, such as laptops, tablets and smartphones, which helps users across multiple locations stay on the same page and share the project progress.

Evernote also features document sharing capabilities, which allow users to save files, photos, videos and voice recordings over the cloud and share them.

With automatic emails and notifications to keep teams updated on project developments, project managers gain a complete picture of the project tasks and are better able to make decisions regarding project planning and execution.

Evernote is an incredible platform for any productive person who wants to keep safe, convenient notes.

Advice to Others

If you're looking for something to rely on, take some time to figure out how you best use it and start putting everything into it. The more you put in it the more you get out: things written are things planned.

I started using Evernote several years ago as an easy way to take notes during meetings and seminars and keep track of Client tasks and projects. I'd been using Google Drive/Docs for several years prior, but wanted to start fresh with something new. While it worked for me for a while, I soon found that my needs outpaced the features offered by Evernote, and I started using it less and less. Eventually, I moved all of my project management over to Basecamp instead, because it simply offered more features and integrations that I needed to run my business.

Pros

At the time I made heavy use of Evernote, I was able to easily sync notes on my tablet, phone, laptop, and PC automatically. I also liked being able to organize notes into notebooks so I could quickly find things.

Cons

The Windows tablet/touchscreen laptop app was buggy and somewhat annoying to use. The layout and organization were very different from the mobile and desktop apps. Also, recently, the free account no longer allows as many devices as I had originally hooked up. It lacks some of the features that more robust project management software have as standard features.

Advice to Others

I think Evernote is great if you need to take notes and create on-the-fly to-do lists. However, there are much better solutions out there for both of those things. For my day-to-day needs, I've replaced Evernote entirely with Basecamp.

I use Evernote every single day and have found it to be a quality product. I started using Evernote two years ago and ran into some issues with the software freezing and shutting down unexpectedly. I stopped using it for a while but my alternative, Mac Notes, wasn't cutting it. I gave Evernote another shot and it has been great ever since. I regularly update and no longer experience freezing or unexpected shutdown issues.

I use the software for the most basic note-taking, but I know it also offers many features that can be helpful for many types of users. I recommend the software to all of my colleagues and anyone in need of a note-taking application.

Pros

The ease of use and reliability is great. The updates are quick and work in the background, so they don't disrupt my current work.

Cons

No cons at this time.

Advice to Others

This product offers lots of features that can be helpful for organization and collaboration, but it is also great for basic note-taking.

The software is fairly intuitive and easy to use; I like the ios app because it allows you to use the task management aspects of Evernote anywhere.

I move between client offices about half the time and find that having an electronic task list is extremely helpful; I also use the clipping function frequently to capture research that I'm doing for my newsletter or for a client project.

The Chrome extension works extremely well; I haven't had the same success with FireFox;

Evernote is a better alternative to keeping bookmarks, open browser windows or copying to a Word doc - the way I used to capture research for later use;

There's a little bit of a learning curve, and there's too many products that have similar functions but work better (Google Docs, Trello, Basecamp)

Recommendations

It's worth using if you're doing online research for multiple projects....but otherwise, I'm not sure if it insures greater productivity.

The free version is all I've ever used. I just switch back and forth between my personal and work Evernote login. It's a great free tool. If I were a company I would definitely implement this as a requirement and buy the business version. I wish I could seen colleagues notes!

I've been using Evernote for almost one year and it is simply amazing. As a small business owner my day is a whirlwind of tasks ranging from management to marketing to maintenance and with Evernote I can stay organized without slowing down. Not only can I do the usual note taking, task lists, etc. but my notes are automatically organized and synced across my devices! And whenever I come across something online, with Evernote I can save it with just the push of my thumb. From pics to videos, audio, whatever, Evernote has me covered! Evernote won me with its ease of use, speed, and connectivity. I not only use Evernote for business, I use it for personal organization as well. Evernote is fire!

Evernote really is a brilliant app that knows no bounds. The only feature I would add is a task list. I can create one and that works fine but task list template would be sweet.

Recommendations

Evernote is in a class of its own. I have not found another app that seamlessly combines note taking, organization, file saving & sharing (any kind of file) like Evernote. Evernote has a free version so try it out!

Evernote is so flexible that your imagination is the only limit to how it can be used to organize your life. It is very easy to use and to customize. I use it mostly to catalog things like local restaurants, recipes and personal collections. I also use it extensively for checklists.

Likes Least

The free version is only accessible when an internet connection is available. The paid version costs a little more than I am willing to pay for the ability to access my data when I am not connected. This rarely is a problem.

Recommendations

It is free, so just download it and try it for a month or so. I have not found anything that is better.

The biggest problem with Evernote - and this is a BIG problem - is: they have no method for removing duplicates. And, while on first glance this might not seem like a big deal, I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 50,000 files in Evernote. Imagine trying to go through 50,000 records manually, looking for duplicate records to remove.

OneNote from Microsoft is probably the best alternative at the moment.

Evernote is more than a text editor, it's a tool to get organized. The ability to have notebooks, and the sharing capability is quite invaluable, especially when working with teams.
From a mobile perspective, Evernote has been amazing in allowing to find quick documents while I'm on the go without having to worry about where I had them stored.

Likes Least

Like any big software company, they tend to have a hard time listening to what users want. One example would be: There is no find and replace option in Evernote. that seems like a very basic functionality that exists in even the most rudimentary of text editor. Evernote would argue that it's not a text editor, to which I would agree, but that doesn't mean that such functionality shouldn't exist.
Little quirks like this in the product are a bit irritating.

Recommendations

Make sure you take enough time to get familiar with the platform. At first, it would seem to be just another note taking application, but make sure to look in the community to see how others are using Evernote creatively. It can really help organize your life, and consolidate the software to use it from 5 or 6 to just Evernote.

I use Evernote for everything, including the traditional brainstorming, taking notes, and jotting down ideas. In addition, it has crazy features that are deep beneath for the surface. For instance, with it's OCR and fast search capabilities, it becomes the ultimate document management system. With it's browser web clipper, it becomes the ultimate "Read it later" app.

Evernote has recently been downsizing it's apps. I was a big fan of Evernote food, and it will sorely be missed. They also got rid of the physical goods store before I had a chance to order the green socks.

Compare this to something like OneNote. Evernote is faster, more capable, and far superior.
