I am prepping for our daycare’s board meeting. Since the last time we met I have been using Evernote to collect stuff pertinent to our work. Now it’s time to sift through that material and ready what I need quick access to during the meeting.
To do that I use Evernote’s ‘table of content’ feature. The end result is a TOC note that contains separate links to the individual Evernote notes that I have selected. Let me walk you through the process.
How to create an Evernote TOC Note
- Launch a desktop client version of Evernote (i.e., Mac or Windows)
- Select multiple notes by using <Cmd+click> in Mac or <Ctrl+click> in Windows. These will be the notes that EN uses to populate the TOC note.
- <Click> the ‘Create Table of Contents Note’ from the dialog box.
- If desired, edit the title of the resulting TOC note and add tags.
Be mindful of Evernote TOC note’s peculiarities
I use this feature, but there are some things you will want to take into consideration.
First, each note selected to be included in a TOC note retains its original tag status, but the TOC note will not be tagged. If you selected notes to include from a list view customized by tag status, then the resulting TOC note will not show in that particular view. The quickest way to find it, is to view notes sorted by date updated, newest to oldest. The TOC note will then be right on top.
Second, the order in which the selected notes are presented in the created TOC will reflect the sort preference of the list view from which the notes were selected. So, if you would like the note titles to sort alphabetically in the TOC then choose that sort option in the note list view before you select them.
