Paper to Digital Transition
The free version of Evernote contains nearly all of the same features as the paid versions. But it can only be used on one device. Having my notes accessible from anywhere was an important goal of the transition to an electronic medium. I upgraded soon enough to allow greater access to me new “digital tablets”.
Learning how a program works can be frustrating, and usually requires patience. Evernote was no exception. The simple need to create folders and related notes took some work to comprehend. While I’ve used software programs for decades, this particular one did not have an intuitive interface. But, I wrote some of this article in Evernote on my Samsung S20+ phone, and some using the Surface Pro. How is that for progress?
I use this system for day to day record and note keeping for the business. This mainly involves meeting records where I track the status of projects. But I also use it to track inventory of things, both real and virtual. In addition, I use it for creative ideas, tracking of home tasks, hobbies, research and more.
However, I don’t recommenced using it for sensitive record storage. While it’s protected via password, and you have the option of using 2 Factor Authentication, it could be hacked like anything else online. Caution is always recommend when putting your sensitive information out there. Even with these factors in place, I wouldn’t keep passwords and bank info stored in these applications. While Evernote serves as a cloud-based solution, they provide the option to have notes available offline, or downloaded.
