Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
So far we've been adding content to notes and various notebooks. And as you can imagine over time, your Evernote notebooks will become stuffed with all kinds of content. So it's time now to talk about Tagging. And the purpose of tagging anything in life is to add descriptive words or phrases that will help us to search for a group of items later on. Evernote tagging is no different. And making it a regular habit can save you tons of time down the road, when you need to retrieve some of that content. Lets move to one of our notes. I'm go to the Business Card here for our Caterer, Karen Leslie. The first type of tag you should think about is the general subject tag. The subject of a note is a great example of good tag material. If we create a note out of a person's business card, obviously we're talking about business cards and this should be our first tag. To create a tag in a note we just simply go up to the very top of the note itself next to the name of the notebook where it says Click to Add Tags. Click there, your cursor's flashing, you can type in your tag. Let's type in Business Card.
Now I'm going to keep it without plural, Business Card. And that means going forward for any other business cards I capture, I should use this same tag, Business Card, and keep it consistent. When you press Return on your keyboard it's locked in. And something else just happened over here on the left-hand side. Tags now appears, and if we want to switch over to Tags we can click this to view all of our tags, there they are. We can even create new tags here that aren't attached to any node and attach them later.
But for now, let's get back to our notes, and a good habit to get into is, as you create your notes, to tag them on the fly. Another type of tag deals with specific subjects. To continue with our business card example here, we'd also tag it with the business name, since that's what the note contains. So let's go back up to, next to our Business Card tag, when we click there the cursor slashing, we can add another tag. How about French Cafe or The French Cafe, and Enter. Now we have two tags, both of them assigned to a single note.
On to another type of tag and that's Source. If we grab this business card from Karen Leslie, the CEO, we should probably tag it with her name. If we grabbed it from some other contact, maybe we would tag it with their name. So, up here at the top I'm going to type in the name of our contact here, Karen Leslie, and press Return. There's our third tag. Now sometimes particular note might be related to a project and you want to tag it, with the project name.
Say our User Conference 2013, for example. And we can consider giving it a tag related to the project when it applies. Of course, many notes won't be part of a project, so this could be admitted in some cases. But this is going to be our caterer at the User Conference 2013. I'm going to add another tag here, User Conference 2013. There we go, press Return and it's locked in. Now when we go over to Tags and select it on the left-hand side of our screen, you'll see all of our tags there. We can also create new tags as I mentioned earlier by clicking the New Tag button. Let's do that, click New Tag, there it is.
It's titled New Tag. And let's just type something in, like Test, and press Return. Now, Test appears differently. You can see it's selected and it's got a 0 next to it, indicating it's not actually part of any note. We can right-click a tag, as well. When you right-click the tag itself, from the popup menu you'll have some options such as. Let's try that again, deleting the tag, renaming it, adding it to shortcuts up here in the top left hand corner. By doing that, it's easy then to drag it to a particular note.
We can also change the way we're sorting. Let's choose Delete tag and click Delete to confirm that we meant to do that. It's gone from our list. Right, we'll go back to our Notes now and let's go up here to our View menu, and switch it to List View. Alright, so down below we see the selected note now, and the tags are still visible here. If we go to another note, for example, if we go to our Itinerary for our Trip to LAX, you can choose any note you like. You can click to add tags here and again you want to be consistent. So if you typed in User Conference 2013 before, you'd do the same thing here. Notice as you start typing, it appears as an option that you can select. Just press Return and its locked in just like that. So it is faster, once you have the tag to start adding them to other notes. So what's the point of having all of these tags? Well filtering and finding content, and that's what we're going to explore next.
