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.
If you are brand new to Evernote the very first thing you'll need to do if you want to be able to use Evernote is create an account. Now if you've already done this feel free to skip this movie and go on to the next, but for those of us who have not created our Evernote account we will not be able to use Evernote until we do so, so we're going to open up our browser. I'm in Safari... And we're going to go to Evernote.com. From this main page, you'll see in the top right hand corner, some links. Signing in on the web, going Premium, we also have a get Evernote button down at the bottom. But before we can actually use Evernote, we need that account. So we're going to go to Create account up here in the top right corner, and give it a click.
Now you'll be prompted for a few pieces of information including an email address. The email address is not connected to evernote, but it will be used to send you a confirmation. So lets do that, I'm going to use a make believe address I've created just for this purpose. And you can see what's happening in the next field, the username field is being populated with the first part of my email address. Underneath that I happen to see the word available. Indicating I'll be able to use this username if I want. Now if you see, not available, you'll need to change up the user name to something that's not already taken. And you can do that, even if it's available you can change your user name. I'm hoping d_rivers is available, is it? No. Already been taken.
d_riversmac8 though is available and I'm going to stay with that. Next we need to come up with a password, should be strong. You'll want upper and lower case characters, alphanumerics, even special characters. And lastly, just to prove you're not a robot, you'll need to enter the numbers you see in this box in the field below. Now you're ready to click the register button, and when you do so you'll see that you need to confirm your email address. There is a field here waiting for the confirmation code which means flipping over to your email, getting that code, and entering it here.
So go ahead and do that. Check your email and I'll see you back here in a moment. When you flip over to your email program, you will find a message there from Evernote and in that message a number of different options. First of all, under your user name you'll see a button to confirm your registration. That's one option. Clicking this will however open up another browser window where you'll be able to confirm your registration, but you just left a browser window to come here. So another option is to simply take the code that's provided and enter it into that registration form we just left. That's what I'm going to do.
In fact, I'm going to highlight it, right click, and copy it so I can paste it. Before we leave though and go back to the EverNote screen, notice you can also download EverNote from this email. And there's also an email address that's been assigned to you, a unique EverNote email address that you can use to forward messages to EverNote. We'll talk about that a little bit later on. For now, though, we'll switch back to that browser window where we can confirm our email by entering that confirmation code we just copied.
I'm going to right-click, and paste. All I need to do now is click confirm, and I now have an Evernote account. So you will see this welcome message and some options for downloading the Evernote app. Because we're on a Mac, we see a button for getting Evernote for Mac. We can also continue with Evernote on the web. We don't really have to download the app to our Mac or our other devices. But the whole idea behind Evernote is to have access to your notebooks at any time from any device, so in the next movie we'll talk about getting Evernote.
