How to Set Up Shared Folders in Evernote

Evernote is an amazing product.  I use it for personal use and as of late, for use with my students. Its flexibility with multiple platforms and computers makes it one of the most popular items in Apple's App Store.

In this screen cast, I show you how to set up a shared folder in Evernote. You might want to do this to share a resource with a group of colleagues or simply to share with others what you're looking at.

A few disclaimers:

  • Sharing folders works best by using the downloaded desktop version. The mobile or online versions of Evernote are great but the desktop version is my favorite.

  • In order to give participants the ability to edit or modify items within the folder, you'll need to upgrade to the Premium version. This is only $5 a month- not a bad investment.

  • Evernote is not what I use for my project management. I use Nozbe for that as it's more of an active, moving target that I need to update all of the time.  Evernote is a bucket system for ideas and scraps of information that you may need later in time.

The first few seconds of this screen cast are fuzzy but you'll see it get clearer as it progresses.

How are you using Evernote to get more productive?
