Evernote and Moleskin Blend Ink and Camera To Archive and Share Paper Notes Better.

Moleskin Evernote Notebook

Many professionals use Evernote to store their “brain” – to capture notes, receipts, file images and much more. My friend Travis Campbell  is an Evernote Nut. i began to apply Evernote to capture notes, but then just stopped doing it as I’ve was using my computer more.

Recently Moleskin developed a brand new notebook series that works hand in hand with Evernote  (take a look at our Evernote tip sheet here ).

According to the Moleskin web site Moleskine and Evernote have created a suite of notebooks with specially-designed pages meant for syncing, archiving and sharing the content in their paper notebooks using digital devices and now announce the appearance of the hot Business Notebook specially conceived for the workplace.

On one hand I’m undecided if this more “gimmick” and marketing spin that truly useful – but nonetheless if the recent notebooks make using Evernote even better – that’s definitely a win for those taking hand written notes but desperate to archive them in Evernote.

Here’s my tip list for note taking and digital storage of these notes

  • In most pro meetings taking notes with a pen and paper is more respectful of your audience; especially when you are actively engaged with the opposite party
  • It’s acceptable to take advantage of a pc or table (or etc) to take notes if that could be a commonly agreed practice by the meeting participants. At Infusionsoft for instance we regularly bring our computers to meetings and take notes
  • Archiving those notes is essential, but what”s more important is ensuring you name the files correctly, save them to acceptable folders and may be able to search in the files for keywords
  • Discipline yourself to study the notes on your notebook in order that they stay fresh and active to your mind
  • Read the Evernote help and support resources so that you get the foremost out of the ability of Evernote

Here’s an entire feature list of what the brand new integration brings:

Specially designed around a brand new feature rolled out within the latest update to Evernote for iOS, each page within the Business Notebook is split in two sections that permit users to save and share private and non-private notes separately, keeping meeting minutes aside from personal reminders. Each page is also numbered to ease indexing and organization, whilst the tick box on the top sets reminders in Evernote automatically when checked at the page.
The Smart Stickers located within the back pocket bring tagging to the physical notebook; with each customizable and instantly recognizable by Evernote’s Document Camera.
Use the Evernote Business Notebook as a contrasting background to capture a great image of economic cards. Evernote automatically saves the contacts with information from LinkedIn and may also share your details in return. The back pocket of the notebook stores the physical business cards once they’ve been saved in Evernote.
