How to Collaborate on Documents with Evernote

Evernote is an easy and efficient way to manage notes and information when you collaborate on a project with a team. Shared Notebooks are a perfect way to manage notes and information, allowing people to grab documents as needed and update notes with new content. However, it has been a challenge to edit documents and collaborate simultaneously with colleagues.

LiveMinutes, a web-based app integrated with Evernote, enables real-time collaboration. Invite your team into a LiveMinutes “workspace,” and initiate either a conference or video call, or you can simply text chat. Once Evernote is linked to your LiveMinutes account, pull in any type of Evernote note, including Evernote Business notes. Anyone in the workspace can read and edit it. LiveMinutes indicates who is making edits, and when completed, it automatically saves an updated version back to the Evernote notebook it was pulled from.

For those who originally did not have the note in their Evernote account, LiveMinutes will save a copy into their Evernote in a new “LiveMinutes” Notebook.

This updated integration from LiveMinutes makes working together with a remote team seamless. Use LiveMinutes to create a virtual workspace for your team to interact in real-time, and keep all project notes and documentation in Evernote, whether a Shared Notebook or Evernote Business.

LiveMinutes is great for personal collaborative projects, too. Use the virtual workspace when planning a big family event, working on checklists and coordinating details with family members.

    This is nice, but why can’t Evernote provide notification when a shared notebook changes?

    This is awesome! I think honestly this is a major shortcoming of Evernote all together. Google got this right out of the gate, but didn’t understood the importance of capturing content everywhere and tagging. Evernote understood that, but never got the importance of live collaboration and appropriate document markup. Still torn between these two imperfect solutions…

    Nice BUT… why isn’t this native in Evernote. “Conflicting Changes” is so annoying and it makes me question why my team uses evernote in the first place instead of google docs.
