Evernote does not have dashboard capabilities? Accelerate your productive workflow with these tips and create Evernote Dashboards within minutes.
If you use Evernote intensively, you will have a large number of notes that are distributed among many notebooks. This makes it very hard for you to keep track of the information that you need at any particular time.
We can always use the powerful search functionality Evernote has and also use their tagging system. But, I wish Evernote could come up with a landing page where we could have the links or pages which could take us directly to our required content.
Dashboard Options for Evernote
Option 1: Start Using Filterize
With an integrated and self-refreshing dashboard using Filterize, you can see all the data that is important to you on a single screen and access it with just one click.
This means that we will have to FIRST, integrate with Filterize, subscribe to their platform, and have another app working in tangent with Evernote.
Filterize is an online cloud service that acts as your personal Evernote assistant. Tell Filterize what to do and it starts working instantly in the background for you. It simplifies repetitive tasks, avoids errors, and saves time.
Filterize works with both Evernote private and business accounts and on any device.
How to create a dashboard in Filterize
The following steps explain how to create a self-refreshing dashboard using Filterize. If you are not already a Filterize user, you will need to sign up first.
- Create a new note in Evernote called “Dashboard”, and style it according to your taste.
- Log in to Filterize.
- Go to table of contents and create a TOC for each category that you need in your dashboard, for example, To-dos for today, Inspiration for your evening meal, or your maybe list from Getting Things Done. We have provided instructions for building a Table of Contents in a tutorial. In order to build a good ToC, you will need to be familiar with the Evernote search operators.
- Place the marker for each list at the location in the dashboard where you would like it to appear.
- Synchronize Evernote. You may need to repeat the synchronization a few times until Filterize has replaced each marker by the corresponding list.
Option 2: Get Creative & Build Your Own Dashboards Within Evernote
Getting CREATIVE is the only solution, it seems!
I have tried and tested this and works really nice. This is a workaround solution and integrates with your workflow seamlessly and saves you tons of time and effort.
We can create these dashboards by creating links and Table of Contents to our multiple notes within Evernote. Once the link(s) are created, we can have a note created, let’s say MY DASHBOARD and have links embedded within our text.
