Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Remember everything important – Evernote allows users to capture and organize notes, files, photos and voice memos in one place. They can snap webpage content with its web clipper. Whenever they find useful information online, they can use the web clipper browser extension to save full or partial page screen captures, and these are all saved in their account. It is better than a bookmark because clipped content is always available. They can add text, callouts, or annotations to highlight information, or add tags, remarks, edit titles, and save content to a designated notebook. There are templates belonging to various categories to create better notes, such as for creative writing, GTD, home and garden, management resources, marketing and sales, meetings, and more. Every note is saved online and synced across computers and devices, so they are always available when needed.
- Stay organized, no matter where – The note-taking app allows users to organize their notes their way, either by topic, project, date, or others. It has notebooks and tags that makes it easy to collect notes and add keyword tags for faster search. They have the option to create a detailed organizational system or just use advanced search to find notes by title, keywords, dates or other content. They can search text in PDFs, Office docs, images, presentations and scanned documents. The software also allows search of words in handwritten notes, photos of white boards, Post-It notes, and to-do lists scanned into the app. It has document scanning feature, so users can take a photo of business cards with contact details, instruction manuals, take-out menus, healthcare and insurance files, which then can be searched easily.
- Collaborate with your team – Evernote has Spaces feature which can be the hub of all the team’s ideas and work. It enables them to collect, organize, and share information easily.
