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.
Aside from replacing your paper notepad or even your Word processor with Evernote for taking notes, there are a number of ways to use Evernote. So let's explore some real life scenarios. We'll begin with storing pictures. Now, let's say you just met someone and you took their business card. Don't risk losing or misplacing it, take a picture of it. You can search for names, titles, et cetera to find their info quickly down the road or maybe you got into a fender bender. Take a picture of both cars, the other car's license plate, and the other driver's license, for example, or maybe you just tried a great bottle of wine.
Take a picture of the label and you'll always be able to remember the name when you go to buy it. Take pictures of expense receipts and checks that you might write as a great way to back that information up in case you lose it or need to track it later on. Evernote has a great app for mobile devices that enables you to upload these pictures directly to your account and we'll explore how that's done a little bit later. How about saving documents? When you receive a document, let's say it's a PowerPoint presentation or a Word document, an Excel file, even a PDF that you might need again, why not forward it to Evernote for safekeeping? It's quite safe. It's easy, but Evernote provides you with unique email address to send documents to your Evernote account.
And this could be very useful when you use more than one computer to create documents or send and receive emails. How about archiving important information? When you get a prescription photograph the receipt of the pharmacy, and that will enable you to remember who prescribed it, when the prescription ends and which pharmacy filled the prescription. This information could be very useful when you want to get a refill, for example. I love this one. Store your online passwords. Whenever you buy something online or create an online account, try forwarding the confirmation or the receipt to Evernote.
Now, when you forget your password, registration number, or date of purchase, you don't have to jump through all kinds of hoops to recover them. And by the way you can encrypt portions of content in Evernote for greater security. How about recording whiteboard content think of Evernote as an affordable way to convert text on a whiteboard to a digital format. Now at the end of that exciting strategic planning session, let's say, you just sat through. Take a picture of the whiteboard and send it to Evernote. Evernote will scan the text so you can search for youy department name to find your pieve of the strategic plan that you promply forgot, and this works for projected slides, too. How about recording your thoughts.
The Evernote mobile app lets you record your thoughts and then upload it to your account. Now, this is perfect for when you have a brilliant idea and want to ensure that it's not lost among the other clutter in your brain. And one last cool scenario is to keep your tweets. By linking your Evernote and your Twitter accounts you can achieve archiving your tweets by including the text @myEN. And by doing that Evernote will grab it and store it for you.
