Our Web Clippers are an amazingly useful way to remember all the interesting stuff you see online. Today, our Web Clipper for Chrome just got a whole lot smarter. Say hello to the newest Web Clipper features: Smart Filing and clipping to Shared Notebooks.
If you’re like me, then you’re clipping content from across the web, but there are a handful of sites that you clip from more often than others. For example, I have some favorite food blogs that I turn to when I need cooking inspiration. Whenever I clip from these sites, I usually place them into my Recipes notebook. With the new Smart Filing feature, the Chrome web clipper does this organization automatically.
How Smart Filing works
When you click the Web Clipper, the extension looks in your account to see how you’ve organized similar clips in the past and then suggests notebooks, relevant tags or both. Of course, if you don’t agree with the suggestions, you can always change them. In my case, it’s been spot on almost every single time.
Clipping into Shared Notebooks
This update also adds a feature that many of you have requested: clipping into shared notebooks. Now, multiple people can work together to build notebooks full of research, ideas and inspirations.
How it works
First, you’ll need to have access to someone else’s notebook and have permission to edit the notes in that notebook. This is something that the notebook owner can do, if they’re a Premium subscriber. That’s all. Now, when you clip a page using the Chrome Web Clipper, you’ll see a Shared Notebook section in the notebook dropdown. Click on the notebook and clip away.
Great for groups
This new feature is great if you’re part of a Sponsored Group at your business or school. Since all members of a Sponsored Group are Premium, every member can grant anyone the right to add notes to their notebooks. Give it a shot.
More to come
In recent months, our Web Clippers have become more intelligent than ever. They know what to clip without you telling them and now they know how to file your clips, sometimes without you lifting a finger. They also have Simultaneous Search, so you can look in your Evernote account whenever you search the web. We have lots more in store, including bringing these new features and more to other browsers. Stay tuned.
