Some More Reasons To Use Evernote ... as if you needed more!

Sandy points out more ways for iPad users to use Evernote.  I've had Evernote for almost a year (I think), but it has only been in the past 2 months that I have put it to good use.  Evernote is my primary journal for all things Short Sales. Every communication with seller, bank, Equator, etc is kept on Evernote.  Another useful tool that I've began to use with more frequency is GoodReader.  I have been meaning to write a post about Goodreader, but just hadn't gotten around to it yet.  Hopefully, somebody will beat me to the punch.

Some More Reasons To Use Evernote ... as if you needed more!

I must admit, that I vastly underrated the value of Evernote. I initially used it to jot down grocery needs, and as an atm spending register.

Then I really graduated! I found out that you can really use Evernote not only as the repository of all things vital (like my birth certificate, and passport) but also for what the serial numbers are for my key boxes, their shackle release codes and on what listings they are on. For listings, buyers, sellers and escrow transactions. For tracking vendors and receipts and expenses. For blog ideas, musings and to save url clips of things you must read later.

I am now using it for my blog drafts and when the blog is finished , it becomes the needed back up for it, without having to physically save it somewhere. It has a full editor and even counts the words. It can record audio notes, too.

Evernote has a powerful search function that allows you to search for whatever you are looking for with only a shred of something that you can remember. PDFs also become searchable.

For example: I knew I had my shackle codes somewhere on my computer. But what was the name of the directory or the folder I put it in? What was the name of the file I gave it? Is this my new list or my old list (Evernote automatically saves a 'created date' and a 'last modified date'). 

In using it for Real Estate you can create a notebook for each client, or transaction, or address, or however it works best for you. Then you can keep everything that occurs in that transaction together in one spot for ease of convenience. Contracts and forms can be kept here, as well as expenses, receipts, checklists, emails, videos, audio, texts and photos. Amazing!!

Here is an example of a transaction for which a termite report and a termite completion had been emailed to Evernote (yes, you can do that, too).

As you can see, it is checked off and you can create a link for it (it works the same as a
hyperlink). So, let's say you are on the phone with your transaction coordinator or escrow officer and they ask if you have received the termite report  and the completion report. When you see it checked off, you know you have it and right from that note, you can email it to them (no more searching for the hard copy, scanning, then emailing). Especially if you are away from your desk, you can complete this task as if you were in the office and not on the golf course because since it syncs with all your devices, you can be anywhere. How simple is that?

How I use Evernote

I'm learning lots more about it and will report back!

Hi Charita - I got Evernote about 6 months back, and didn't use it much at first. But now I'm finding that it's turning out to be just what I need in more and more cases. It's a great little program.

Very informative post Charita. 

I recently added it to my iPad but haven't made the time to really play with it.  Sure sounds like it can help organize my life.

I have down loaded Evernote on my iPhone and on my lap top. But i have yet to open it up and use it! Yikes! I don't even know how to start it. Just now I am thinking I need to down load it on my desk top computer too.

Raymond, you may not see the value right away, but get to know the app and you soon will see value.

Let us know what you think Gita when you try it.

Gay when I search for productivity apps on my iPad, there are literally thousands.  Even when I refine the search, there are still thousands of them so it's a task just finding them.

Dick if you like Evernote, I think you'll love Goodreader.

Paulaand Cheryl when you get some time, definitely try it.

Sussie it took me a while to start using it too.  As a matter of fact, I think it was AR post that prompted me to start put it to good use.

So now you know Paul.  Get busy and you'll be glad that you did.
