Latest news about Evernote

2018. Evernote refines integrations with Slack and Salesforce

Evernote Business now lets you easier access Evernote content from Slack and Salesforce. It has taken advantage of new Slack Actions to get away from the command interface style that Slack had previously used and make it easier for their core knowledge workers to access Evernote content inside of Slack. Users can take an Evernote note in Slack, which will then show up in Evernote automatically in a “Notes from Slack” folder. The newer Salesforce integration improves the technical connections between the two cloud applications including the ability to “pin” a note to a record. What’s more, once a note is linked there is two-way sync, which means regardless of whether you change that note in Salesforce or Evernote, it will update in both places (because the integration is a live version of Evernote).

2018. Evernote adds project management Spaces

The new feature - Spaces - in Evernote Business helps teams more effectively turn their ideas into action and move projects forward. Spaces allows each team member to see the bigger picture by using the “What’s new” and “Pinned notes” tiles to help them stay on top of changes happening in a space and highlight what’s important in the activity. Teams can tap into business knowledge by making their spaces discoverable, as well as discover new ones in the Space Directory. Spaces is currently only available in Evernote Business plan that costs $14.99 / User / Month.

2017. Evernote integrates with Slack

Evernote built a new integration with the highly popular messaging app Slack. Evernote is where you keep all your ideas, and Slack connects your ideas to other people. By removing the friction between these two tools, you can now spend less time searching and more time doing. By using the /note command in Slack you can jot down your notes, create a to-do list or a reminder—all without leaving the conversation. Or you can use the /clip command to capture messages from Slack and save them (based on date, importance, or URL) as a note in Evernote. With the /find command you can now search for the specific note you need and share a snapshot with the team without leaving Slack.

2016. Evernote limits free plan to 2 devices and raises prices

Note-taking app Evernote introduced new pricing policy. The Basic plan remains free, but is now limited to only two devices. That might be sufficient for the average user — Evernote likely wouldn’t deliberately rankle a majority of their free users — but it’s still a considerable limitation. The addition of the passcode lock feature to Basic helps soften the blow, though. Plus, which was $3 per month, now costs $4 (or $35 per year), while Premium went from $6 to $8 per month, or $70 per year. You get 1GB and 10GB, respectively, in those plans, and the specifics of what’s offered (too much to list here) can be found at the Evernote site.

2016. Evernote unveiled new Windows app

Evernote has unveiled a major update of its desktop client for Windows users. The new release provides another user interface revamp and some new features. Notebooks and tags can now be directly accessed, created and deleted from the left-hand pane, which can be minimized to free up screen real-estate elsewhere. Users also gain the ability to define notebooks and tags by color (right-click to do this) for easier identification in the left-hand pane. Business account users now see their personal and business notes visually separated out, with the ability to choose what’s displayed. Mixed note lists have been dropped. Keyboard shortcuts make it quick and easy to toggle between personal and business mode. The new version also comes with the promise of increased stability and performance - search in particularly runs much quicker.

2014. Evernote rolls out built-in chat

Online note-taking and collaboration service Evernote has rolled out a new “Work Chat” feature to its web and mobile applications which allows users to discuss ideas and projects directly in the Evernote interface itself, instead of having to shift those conversations over to email. Additionally, when you email a note to someone, it will now show up in Work Chat automatically, allowing you to keep a permanent history of your communications. You can chat with either just one person, or a group, and you can optionally sync the app with your Google Contacts, too. When you start a chat with another user, they’re notified both in the app and via an email message that informs them of the chat and offers a button which, when clicked, launches Evernote.

2014. Evernote unveiled AI tool and new web interface

The most popular note-taking Evernote wants people not just keep using its app to store notes and thoughts regularly, but to use it for ever more purposes: it’s launching Evernote Context — an AI play that will see it surfacing and suggesting new content to you from third party sources as you read and write. This will mean adding a new content feed from third party sources that will appear within Evernote, alongside and relevant to the work that you are doing within the app, wether you are on desktop or another client. Also Evernote unveiled new web app that uses a lot more white space throughout the interface, leaving you with a much cleaner workspace that doesn’t draw your eye to past notes as you add new ones to the same extent as you’d fine the native desktop app.

2014. Evernote and LinkedIn integrate business cards into social network

Business card scanning apps were already on the market for some time (i.e. Evernote). They rescue business people from card-full wallets, but don't solve another problem: contacts may change over time. Fortunately, this problem is solved by social networks (especially LinkedIn), where people update their own contact information, and it's automatically updated in their friends' address books. A few days ago LinkedIn integrated with Evernote. Now you just make a photo of business card and your smartphone immediately shows you the person's LinkedIn profile.  You're then given the option to connect with that CEO, secretary or digital prophet on LinkedIn or add their contact info to your address book. However, things get interesting as your business relationship blossoms. Over time, you can add things like audio from a meeting, documents, or even key emails with him or her to the card's page in Evernote.

2013. Evernote Business 2.0: intranet social network + Salesforce integration

Evernote has launched the new version of its business edition - Evernote Business 2.0. As usual the business version (unlike the personal) allows to create shared (corporate) notebooks and pages that are suitable for collaboration (for example, creating plans, projects , ...) or storing knowledge (instructions , documents ... ), useful for business. In the new version on top of this content layer Evernote started to build a social network. It added user profiles with pictures. When you open your collegue's profile, you can see the notes she works with. Also, when you are looking for something in the corporate notebooks, Evernote provides not only found pages, but also people who may be experts in this question (that frequently use this word in their notebooks). Shared notebooks are now like communities. You can join them or invite your colleagues to notebook.

2013. Evernote adds reminders

One of the main functions that IT apps should perform for us - is offloading our memory and reminding us where and what we wanted to do. Perhaps the most popular reminder for businessmen and executives is Google Calendar. But now, you can also use the online notebook Evernote for this purpose. For each note in Evernote you can set a reminder, and on the given day the service will send you the email notification (or pop-up the message on the screen of your mobile device). Reminders are also displayed at the top of the notes list. This feature is already available in the online version and iPhone/iPad apps. The update to the Android-app is coming soon.

2013. Android for business: Google adds offline translater, Evernote - document scanner

Android gets two more useful features that business users will like for sure. First, it the offline mode in the Google Translate app. Because the translator is often needed when you travel abroad. At the same time in other country you often can't access mobile Internet. But now it's possible to download needed language databases and use the powerful Google's translator offline. And the Evernote for Android has added specialized camera mode for documents. It defines the boundaries of the sheet, eliminates shadows and adjusts the contrast, thus optimizing the text for OCR. Note that for now Evernote doesn't return the OCR-document in the text format, but allows you to search this document by the text it contains. In addition, in the free Evernote version the time of document recognition may take several days.

2012. Evernote to launch Business version

Сервис Evernote Business will be a useful tool for small companies enabling super-simple information sharing: notes, plans, drafts, pictures, files, etc. Moreover, employees who already have a personal Evernote account will be able to use it for business-purposes also. All personal records will remain personal and noone can access them. While the records saved into business notebooks will be available for co-workers and can be collaboratively edited (business account administrator will configure access rights to business notebooks). In addition, all employees that are added to business account will get all benefits of the Evernote's premium plan (versions history, offline access, 1 GB of data upload pet month). Administrator will pay for all users. Recall the price of the premium plan is $5/month (but maybe they'll give discounts for the business version). The service will be available in December.

2011. Evernote Hello - pesonal CRM in your notebook

Recently we told about CardCloud, the service that offers electronic business cards instead of boring and outdated traditional cards. But now the note-taking service Evernote invented even better solution. The free iPhone app Evernote Hello will not only allow you to remember the people that you met at business meeting or conference, but also link them to the notes you have taken during these meetings. It works like this: after talking with someone you take your iPhone, launch Evernote Hello and ask this person to enter his contacts (or you can enter them yourself from his words). Then you can take a picture of this person (or he can do it himself). If he enters the email, the app will automatically send him your electronic card. Once you said goodbye, you can add a meeting to the contact card (so that you remember where you met this person) and meeting-related notes. The next time you meet him, you can add a new meeting and new notes to the card. Thus you'll have the relations history, just like in the CRM system. Moreover, this information will also be available in your Evernote online account and Evernote desktop app, if you use it.

2011. Evernote finally gets a normal Web app

After the closure of Google Notebook, Evernote actually became the most popular online notebook. Even having such strong competitors like Zoho Notebook and MS OneNote. The main advantage of Evernote is that it's available everywhere as a native app: on Windows, Mac, Android, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Palm, Windows Mobile, as a plug-in for browsers. Of course, the global access to an online notebook, including offline access, is extremely important to users. But the web-client of Evernote was the main reason why the majority of Google Notebook users preferred to stay with it (even after closure) and not move to Evernote. Today Evernote finally has released a normal Web-based app with a convenient interface (like in Outlook). In addition, the web-engine has been completely rewritten and now it works really fast.

2008. Pelotonics Integrates Evernote into Project Management

Three weeks ago we wrote about the release of the new Application Programming Interface (API) of sophisticated note taking system Evernote. We said we were excited to see what outside developers were going to do with it. Today we saw our first Evernote integration and it is awesome. Group collaboration startup Pelotonics has turned Evernote into an easy way to load photos, voice messages, notes and other media into your project management system, including from a mobile device. Pelotonics describes itself as a group collaboration system built with "an eye toward adding certain intuitive pieces of functionality that Basecamp did not and would not launch." We're not sure whether Basecamp might add Evernote functionality to its software, but after seeing what Pelotonics has done with it so far, that sure looks like it could be a good idea.
