Evernote is great for remembering all sorts of information, from text to web pages to files to images. Our goal is to make it easy for you to find what you need no matter what it is. And now that so many of our users have large accounts, we’ve made this a top a priority. Today, Evernote Web takes a big step in that direction with a new, more powerful search box.
New Search Box features
Here are some of the ways the update makes finding what you need easier:
Choose the notebook to search
Click on the Search Box and you’ll notice your current notebook appear as the first item in the dropdown. Click it to display a list of all of your notebooks, including ones in Stacks. Your search will be performed within the notebook that you select.
Choose search filters
Click on the Add Filters option to display all of the ways you can slice and dice the search. You can search by date, content within the note, to-do status, whether the notes include files, and lots more. Sometimes you don’t remember exactly what you’re looking for but you know that it was a web page that had images that you clipped last month. Now, you can easily construct that exact search.
As soon as you start typing, the bar will show a list of tags that start with the letter(s) you have typed. Click on the tag and it will be added to your search.
Recent and Saved Searches
You’ll also see a list of your recently performed searches and searches that you’ve saved. Click to run the search again without entering all of the criteria.
Mix things up
You can combine these filters with your usual keyword searches to get exactly what you’re looking for.
We really like how intuitive this search functionality is. Our plan is to continue polishing this search capability on the web. Once we’re comfortable with the experience, we’ll begin rolling it into the desktop and other versions of Evernote. Let us know what you think.
