When you want your team to work together in Evernote, it helps to give them specific ideas to get them started. Here’s how our Ambassadors got their teams excited about using Evernote at work.

Lindsey C. Holmes, Usable Tech (Entrepreneurship Ambassador)
I supply my staff with a guide for how Usable Tech uses Evernote. I also introduce a few non-business ideas to get them excited about using Evernote to enhance their own lives, like automating their bank statements with FileThis Fetch or importing social media updates with IFTTT or Zapier.

Russell Curtis, RCKa Architecture (Architecture Ambassador)
To familiarize people with Evernote, we hold a series of lunchtime workshops to demonstrate various aspects of Evernote and how it integrates into our workflow, how to find information and the protocols for tagging notes. This also forms part of our induction process for new staff when they first join the office. See more about how RCKa uses Evernote Business.

Stacey Harmon, Harmon Enterprises (Marketing Ambassador)
The very first thing I do is share notes with new team members, either via the email share option or by creating a public link. I then invite them to shared Business Notebooks. In some cases, I actually work with clients to make sure that they are trained on Evernote so that we can set up a workflow that supports the work we do with them.

Jim Cregan, Jimmy’s Iced Coffee (Entrepreneurship Ambassador)
I encourage my team to start using Evernote by having them take meeting notes into Evernote and forward important client emails to specific notebooks. I also take the old-fashioned approach and just tell my people that they need to use Evernote! See more about how Jimmy’s Iced Coffee uses Evernote Business.

    Hi Team, our business currently has several individuals with their own EvernoteLivescribe accounts and we would like to have the one business account with each team member forming part of this. So all team members can collaborate and operate more efficiently – is this able to be done?
