There’s a huge difference between doing work and doing great work. Everyone knows that this distinction exists, but most productivity tools seem ambivalent to it. Not us.
We believe that Evernote has a critical role to play in not only helping you get through your projects, but also in adding depth and quality to your work. This is a big challenge, and one that our Augmented Intelligence team has been tackling for the past several years. The result is Context, and it’s here to help you do your best work yet.
As you write or collect information in Evernote, we begin looking for useful, relevant content that will inform your work. This may come from notes in your own account, notes shared by a coworker, and now from trusted news sources, including The Wall Street Journal.
Say you’re preparing for a meeting with a new partner. You start building out a note with agenda items, research, and ideas. Last week, there were important developments in your partner’s industry. The Wall Street Journal covered it. We’ll show it to you right below your note. You can even save or cite the article.
With Context, you’ll have the information you need at the exact moment that you need it, all without you ever leaving your workspace.
There’s more. If you include the name of the person you’re meeting with in your note, and you’re connected to that person on LinkedIn, you’ll see their LinkedIn profile pop up in the Context section. Great for staying up-to-date.
Other Context sources include Fast Company, Inc. Magazine, Pando Daily, and TechCrunch.
