Evernote has always been the place where your most productive work happens. Now, you can also share, chat, and collaborate with others without ever having to leave your workspace to send an email or jump to another app.
Meet Work Chat, a new way to share and discuss the things you’re working on in Evernote with the people who’ll help you get them done.
Chat to work together efficiently
Click or tap on the Work Chat icon to launch a new chat and bring the right people into the conversation—even if they don’t use Evernote yet. You can chat with as many people or as few people as you need to get the job done.
Sharing made simple
Work Chat gives all of your conversations focus around the work you’re doing in shared notebook and, for the first time, editable single notes. It orients everyone to the task at hand and creates a collaborative hub for discussion. With Work Chat, the challenging task of getting everyone on the same page is now fast and easy.
Tap the Work Chat icon when you’re viewing any note or notebook on mobile and it will automatically add your content to the chat. Do the same on desktop by clicking Share on a note, or by clicking the Work Chat icon in the notebook list. You can also just drag and drop a note onto any chat. Before sharing the notes and notebooks, you can choose to let the team edit your work or just view it.
Emailing a note is more powerful than ever with Work Chat—just type in your colleague’s email address in the recipient field and hit send. Once they create a free account or sign in to an existing one, they’ll be able to access the note in Evernote and immediately start working on it. You’ll never have to go hunting through your inbox to revisit feedback on your shared notes again.
Find people you work with in Evernote
As you and your colleagues work together in Evernote, you’ll start to see their faces pop up in notes and notebooks. A spinning ring around their picture means that they’re currently editing the note.
Having an ambient knowledge of what your teammates are working on makes your team more open and connected. It also makes starting a conversation with anyone super simple—all you need to do is click or tap on the person’s image to launch a new chat.
Knowing that someone is editing the note you’re in is great, but that’s only part of the story. Evernote now also shows you the people that are working on shared notes in your note list. This awareness has an unexpectedly powerful affect. It gives you confidence that work is progressing on the things you care about and it draws you into conversations, just like overhearing someone mention a project you’re a part of.
Work Chat and Context
This concept of connectedness goes beyond the projects you’re working on now. With Work Chat, you can elevate your entire team’s work by sharing articles and notes you’ve discovered through Context.
Roll over any article or note to reveal the Work Chat icon, and click to share it in a chat. If you’re an Evernote Business user, you can also quickly start a chat with a person that may know more at your company.
