Your memory works by associating ideas, experiences, people, and events. We built Evernote to do the same by putting everything in the context of other things you’ve captured, including your encounters in Evernote Hello, meals in Evernote Food, and everything else you have saved in Evernote. These connections are what we call Related Notes.
As you create and save items into your Evernote account, we automatically build contextual relationships among them using things like titles, locations, and time.
Here’s an example: let’s say you attended a conference and took notes in Evernote, then used Evernote Hello to remember all the people you met. In the evening, you decided to go to a restaurant that you’d heard about (and clipped into Evernote) with a few of the folks from the conference. At the restaurant, you snapped some photos of your meal using Evernote Food and took a few notes about the experience.
The Power of Related Notes
Now, check out those experiences in Evernote Food and Evernote Hello. Look at your new contacts in Evernote Hello and you’ll be reminded of the meal you shared and all the notes you took at the conference. Look at the meal in Evernote Food and you’ll see everyone’s face and the clipped reviews about the restaurant.
If Evernote is an extension of your memory, Related Notes are the strings that tie your memories together.
The Evernote View
And don’t forget, you can also view everything in your Evernote account, organized and sorted however you like.
Related Notes are currently available in Evernote Food and Evernote Hello. We’re also improving our algorithms to make this feature even more useful.
