At this time of year, many of our users are probably thinking about travel, time off from work, gift-giving, family time, and lots of festivities and cheer. There are lots of ways to make your holiday season better with Evernote — from getting more organized so you’ll stress less to capturing the special moments.
This year, we introduced the Evernote Holiday Pledge; anyone who signs the Pledge opts in to receive useful tips and guidance from our team and our fabulous Ambassadors throughout the season. What’s more, we’re hosting a number of fun virtual events to help you be a better Evernote user, connect with the Evernote community and learn just how much you can do with your Evernote account, various Evernote products and partner products that extend the Evernote experience.
