Earlier this week, we launched Evernote Business, our new solution to help small businesses build upon the knowledge of their teams. Today, we have a great Evernote Business-related update. Evernote for iPhone and iPad (5.1) now come with enhanced Evernote Business support that lets you discover what your colleagues know with ease.
When you join your company’s Evernote Business account, your current Evernote account is upgraded to Business Premium, which gives you access to the content and knowledge of others in your organization. When you upgrade, you’ll notice some new things appear in Evernote.
Evernote for iPhone and iPad now let you create Business Notebooks, in addition to your existing Personal ones. To do this, go to the Notebook view and tap the Edit button. Next, tap on New Notebook and choose Business from the list.
Viewing Business Notebooks
Once you’ve joined your company’s Business Notebooks using Evernote on Mac, Web and Windows, you can view them any time using Evernote for iPhone and iPad. The Business Notebooks are a gray color to make them easy to distinguish. On iPhone, they appear below Personal Notebooks.
It’s important to keep in mind that Evernote Business gives you, the user, a single place for both Personal and Business Notebooks, but your company only knows about the Business Notebooks.
Business Notes View
Evernote Business users will also find a new view in the home screen: Business Notes. Tap this view to jump directly into the note list that shows all of the notes contained in the Business Notebooks that you have joined. When you open the view, pull down to expose search and sorting options.
Sorting options for all users
All users now get a set of sorting options to help them find the notes they’re looking for more easily. When you’re viewing a note list, pull down and you’ll see a Sort button. Tap it and choose to either sort the list by Updated Date or Created Date (the newest note will display at the top). You can also sort notes by title.
This update also allows Premium and Business Premium users to hide the Premium View from the home screen. You’ll see the the option if you tap on the Premium View and scroll to the bottom. You can always bring it back in Settings.
We’re excited to bring this new, better Evernote Business experience to our iPhone and iPad users, as well as some new features for Free and Premium users. Let us know what you think.
