Integration with Evernote is one of the most valuable features in Nozbe Personal. You can access it regardless of the account owned in Nozbe Personal. Even a free Evernote and free Nozbe Personal are sufficient for using your Evernote notes as reference materials within your Nozbe Personal. You can either keep them under the attachments area of your project or/and add them directly to actions in the form of comments. To do so, you will first need to authorize Nozbe Personal’s access to your Evernote account, and that can be done from the “Settings” section.
Choose “Settings” from the left panel(1). Then select “Integrations” (2). Integration with Evernote(3) is 3rd from the top.
Click the button and authorize Nozbe Personal’s access.
Upon confirming, you will see the following screen:
Once the process is completed, you will be taken to the Integrations view in your Nozbe Personal account. You will also receive a confirmation email from Evernote to your email.
And from now on, you will be able to see your notes in Nozbe Personal. Remember that they are your reference materials, so if you wish to update them, it needs to be in the app of their origin = in Evernote.
Now, to see your Evernote notes in Nozbe Personal, follow the instructions below:
Clicking the “+” will open the attachment options where you will need to choose “Evernote note” from the dropdown list:
At this point, Nozbe Personal using the Evernote API will locate your notes with some options:
OK, you may ask, what if a note that I want to add is not among my 100 recent notes in Evernote? You can search for it:
Just start typing in the field (1), and after entering at least three characters (2), a link will appear- click/tap on it to search, e.g., “Gra” in your Evernote account.
A new section - found notes have been attached to the list of notes. These are the results of the “Gra” query, and they include all the notes with this phrase in the title or the body of a note. It is the native Evernote search. It also supports advanced search features like in the Evernote app.
You can choose more than one note to be attached at once, and after selecting them, please click the “Save” button that will appear at the top.
The notes you have selected will be displayed under project attachments from now on and will be visible for all project participants.
If you wish to preview an Evernote attachment, simply tap on it and click on the “Show in web browser” button:
To go back to Nozbe Personal, tap on Hide in the top left-hand corner.
You may want to attach your notes to tasks instead of projects. This option is convenient if you need the notes as a quick reference for what needs to be done in a given action.
In such a case, all you need to do is create a new comment in the desired task, change the comment format option from Text to Evernote and use the same mechanism as in project attachments described above. You might also look at how to add comments in Nozbe Personal.
Such sync requires no particular action on your part unless you do not wish to have it. Reminders will automatically synchronize into your Inbox once you set up the integration. They will all bear the “Evernote reminder” category and be set as actions to the date and time you have chosen for them in Evernote, with the note being a comment.
When you complete the task in Nozbe Personal or change its due date, it would also change in Evernote and vice versa. Changing reminders date in Evernote or marking it as done would sync to Nozbe Personal.
Please note that if you remove the reminder in the Evernote, a task in Nozbe Personal will not disappear.
