Evernote is a free download to help you keep you on track with your business tasks, save important information from different websites, create and track to do lists, scan documents, and more.
A note is similar to a file, and a notebook is similar to a folder. To create a new note, click on New Note. If you paste a file into Evernote in a new note, it automatically titles your note the same name as your file name.
There are many different ways to create a note:
- Make a To Do List for your daily, weekly, and monthly business tasks
- Record an audio file of important information that you want to recall later
- Save website pages, photos, and PDF files you want to reference later
- Write or highlight right on the website pages, photos, documents, and PDF files
- Scan documents and business cards
Since this is web based, you can access your notes from all of your electronic devices, computer, phone, or tablet. There is no need to remember to save your information, Evernote saves and syncs your information automatically.
Once you start to create new notes, you want to organize them into Notebooks, in order to find them quickly when you want to access the notes. To create a new Notebook, hover over Notebook, click on the + icon to the right of the Notebook. A pop up will appear, type in the name for your new notebook. You just created your first notebook.
To create a To-Do-List, add a new note. On each line, input your business task to be completed. At the beginning of each line, insert “Add A Checkbox”. When you complete a task, click on the checkbox to display a checkmark inside the box.
