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.
Well, before we begin using Evernote, and explore its many powerful features and functions . let's take a quick look at what Evernote actually is and what it can be used for. In a nutshell, Evernote is a digital notebook. It's a digital notebook that can capture, store and index just about any type of data you can think of. All while syncing trough the Web and across all of your devices like Windows PCs, Mac computers, tablets and smartphones. And the more you store in Evernote, the more powerful and useful it becomes. And because Evernote is a digital notebook, not a paper one, you can store more than just what you might write, draw, or paste into a paper notebook.
Sure, you can write things in Evernote, but aside from text notes you can add images like digital photos you have or digital photos you take with your tablet or smartphone. You can record your voice and play it back whenever you need it. You can copy or clip something you see on a web page or in another document and keep it in your notebook and you can scan things into your notebook too. Of course, the real beauty of Evernote is you can have it with you wherever you go. With Evernote installed on your computer you can have it running and waiting in the wings for your next command.
But when you leave your computer, you can have it on your smartphone or tablet and everything is synced up with your computer. But storing content in a digital notebook is only half the picture when it comes to Evernote, getting at that content is equally important. Evernote lets you tag your content and organize it easily so you can find what you're looking for in a jif. And with powerful search functionality, you can find the smallest piece of information with lightning speed. Imagine you had a photo taken with your smartphone and added it to your Evernote notebook.
It's a photo of you on vacation standing next to the welcome sign for the Grand Canyon National Park. Now, to find that photo in Evernote down the road, you search for Grand Canyon. And thanks to OCR technology in Evernote, that's Optical Character Recognition. Evernote finds and recognizes the text in your photo and accesses that photo for you. How cool is that? Now, one last thing before we move on. There are some terms you should be familiar with before we start using Evernote. Let's begin with a note which is a single item stored in Evernote.
Now, this could be a PDF, could be an image, a piece of text you type, an audio or video file, a screen capture, or any combination thereof. Then we have notebook, which is just a named container used for storing notes in a logical way. And you might have a notebook called Wishlist or Project XYZ for example. At the time of this recording, each Evernote account can have up to 250 notebooks. Then, we have something called a stack, which is a named container for notebooks. It allows an additional three levels of organization of your notes and notebooks.
Your business stack might contain a project stack holding all our project notebooks in one place, for instance. Now, just keep in mind, a notebook stack containing 10 notebooks counts as 11 notebooks against your limit of 250. A tag is a descriptive piece of text applied to a note that can be used to identify it later or group several notes by topic. Each note may have multiple tags, or none at all. Then we have something called a clipping, which is really just the act of capturing content from a source, like a web page or another application on your desktop, or even a mobile device, and adding it to Evernote.
Sync or synchronization is Evernote's function of keeping an up to date copy of your entire Evernote database. Aside from the parts you tell Evernote to leave out, somewhere in the cloud or internet. Now, this happens at timed intervals that you can configure. And then, lastly, we have attributes. These are bits of data about each of your notes, also known as metadata. Such as the date it was created, how it was added, what type of media it contains, and so on. Each and every note has these, though some have more than others.
