How Linking Evernote Notes Helps You Get More Done

I love that I can link my Evernote together. Did you know you could do that? By creating links within my Evernote notes, I enhance my productivity. I also can use Evernote in many more ways.

I’ve written earlier about how I use my Evernote setup to organize my notes and notebooks by priority and not topics. This has been huge for helping me stay on track. Linking these notes together also helps keep things neatly organized.

Creating Links in Evernote Notes

How linking evernote notes will help you get more done

To add a link to another Evernote note within your Evernote note drag and drop the note you want to link to onto the note that you are editing. To do this on a Windows system, I find it works better if you have the note you’re editing and writing open on one side, and the Evernote app opened on the other side.

Note that whenever you drag and drop a file into another file, it will either go to the top of the page or wherever you most recently were typing.

You can add hyperlinks to your notes by highlighting text, then right mouse clicking. In the menu that appears when you right mouse click, select “add hyperlink” and copy and paste the website address in the box that appears.

How I use Interlinked Evernote Notes

I find this particularly useful when I’m working on a large project, and I have created a running to-do list in Evernote, using check boxes next to each line item. I usually will create individual notes for each portion of the to-do list if it’s a writing project.

So, if my to-do list has items like:

  • Write Fresh About Page Copy
  • Edit and Update the Start Page
  • Create content for the Website Client Post

I can then have links to a note with my About Page content, ideas, and content for updates to the Start page, and content for a website client post. This way, I can keep track of what I need to do with a to-do list, while keeping it uncluttered from the details.

I usually will create individual notes for each portion of the to-do list if it’s a writing project, and link within the uncluttered list!

If you’ve not tried Evernote, I’m a happy power user of this app. I have written an ebook on using Evernote to increase your productivity, which you can learn more about here. You can find out more about all of my books and ebooks here.

You can find out more about Evernote’s free and premium versions over here on their website.

  1. This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog
    (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to
    say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool! 0mniartist asmr

  2. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
    WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am anxious
    about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about
    blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress
    content into it? Any help would be really appreciated! 0mniartist asmr
