What will you accomplish in 2015? Throughout January, we’re sharing our favorite #EvernoteTips, shortcuts, and tricks perfect for powering productivity, whether you work for yourself or on a team.
Yesterday, we showed you how to create a table of contents in two fast steps.
Essentially, the table of contents is created with the assistance of note links – a powerful tool you can use to seamlessly connect to essential content you need to get work done. Here’s how to create a note link using Evernote for Mac or Windows:
1. To create a link to a specific note, right-click the note in your note list and choose Copy Note Link.
2. Paste the link in a specific note or even within a different application.
Tip: Note links you created on your desktop will work on Android and iOS devices.
So, when would note links be helpful? Here’s a few ideas:
1. Create a daily agenda note for yourself, and use note links to quickly navigate to personal to-do lists and project notebooks without leaving Evernote. With this structure, you’re always two or three taps from content no matter where you use Evernote.
2. Searching is great, but a table of contents gives you an anchor point to orientate yourself within a notebook. Note links can help provide a nice order to review content before a board meeting or presentation.
3. Use note links to create the order of your notes using Presentation Mode.
4. Simplify the onboarding process. With a shared notebook, you can create note links to important project information, mission statement, knowledge base, or processes page.
