Evernote Tags


Tags let you add keywords to notes, making them easier to find and browse when you’ve got a lot of them. Use tags when a note might apply to more than one category or when you want to filter results in a certain notebook by a keyword. You could use tags to associate notes with categories, memories or locations. You tag Evernote To Do items — those are the ones where you insert a checkbox — with your context(s) and (optional) a time estimate (5, 15, 30,45 or 60 minutes). Saved Searches make these items show up on your @ context list(s), on your Project list when tagged with @project, on Someday/Maybe when tagged with sd — and on one of your time. All Evernote users can have up to 100,000 tags per account. Your notes can be associated with multiple tags. Here is how you can quickly add a tag to notes in Evernote: 1. Evernote can be a great digital mind, but—like the brain in your head—it can quickly become a mess if you don't keep it organized. Make Evernote better by using this simple tagging system.

Evernote is a free program that I have on my laptop and phone. I have “notebooks” for project ideas, color combinations, and products. I have spent way too much time creating notes for every current Stampin’ Up! product. But the time invested has been worth it to me. I can scroll through the stamp sets I own, browsing for what I want, search for all the stamps to say “thanks,” or search for every set that has a flower or tree. Love it!

Evernote is on both my laptop and my phone and they are synchronized so I can scroll through the catalog or just the products I own from anywhere. I can find what I need (or want) on Evernote. Theoretically I could keep my products tucked in various corners of my home and still be able to find them with Evernote. Here’s a video how I use it.

When you access my files you won’t be able to make any changes to my files. If you want to make the notes your own, you can copy them to your own notebook. Then you can change them all you want.

How To Organize Evernote

And if you are sharing my Evernote notebook and want to copy my notes into your own notebook:

Evernote Tags Strategy

  1. Create a notebook to copy the notes into.
  2. Go to the joined notebook.
  3. Select the notes you want.
  4. On Windows, right click and select “copy to notebook.”
    • Be sure to check the boxes to Preserve Created and Updated Dates and especially Preserve Tags.
  5. On some devices you will highlight the note, and select “duplicate” and select your notebook.
  6. On the free/Basic version of Evernote, there is a lime on how much data you can add per month. Viewing my notes does not add data, but copying my notes does. If you run into to limit, just wait until the month has passed and add more notes. You can find where you are on the data limits and the date you can start adding more data on your Accounts page.
