Web Clipping is one of our favorite Evernote features. With a simple click of our browser extension, you can save just about anything you see online into your Evernote account for permanent safekeeping. Today, we’re taking this one step further. The Evernote Web Clipper for Chrome now lets you clip from Gmail!
Email accounts are much more than a history of conversations. They contain photos, research, files, purchase receipts, travel itineraries, and just about everything in between. The trouble with email is that with thousands of emails in an account, it become incredibly difficult to organize things and find what you need, which is precisely where Evernote excels.
Whenever you receive an important email, simply open it and click on the Web Clipper. The email, along with any attached files, will be saved to Evernote. The Web Clipper grabs only what it can see, so if you want to clip all parts of the conversation, be sure to expand the thread.
You’ll also be able to place it into your notebook of choice, assign any relevant tags and add a note.
Easy to Find
Once in Evernote, the full email conversation appears as a nicely formatted note, that’s tagged and organized however you like. The subject line becomes the note’s title and all the email addresses of recipients show up near the top. If you’re a Premium user, then we’ll also make any attached documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and PDFs searchable. Upgrade to Evernote Premium
Great for Work
Like many companies, we use Gmail here at Evernote. Using the Chrome Web Clipper helps us spend less time sifting through our email for a specific attachment or image, and more time working efficiently. If you use Evernote at the office too, take a look at Evernote Business.
