Frequently Asked Questions

How can I view both my individual notes and my team notes at the same time?

You can only have notes open from one account at a time, but it’s quick to navigate between accounts. If you regularly want to look at individual notes but do work in team notes, you might decide to stay logged in to your team account in your Evernote app, and log in to your individual account in your web browser.

Note: If you have a note open in a separate window, it will remain open when you switch between accounts.

How do I move notes from individual notebooks to team notebooks, and vice versa?

You can either move individual notes, multiple notes, or entire notebooks from an individual account to a team account. See how to move notes from an individual account to a team account.

Is there a keyboard shortcut for switching accounts?

Note: This shortcut is not yet available in the new Evernote for Mac or new Evernote for Windows.

Mac

  • When you add an account it is automatically assigned a number, visible in the account list. Use Command + Control + [#] (where # is the number associated with the desired account) to switch between accounts.
  • If you have a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, you can also switch accounts using a Touch Bar action.

Windows

  • Switch between accounts using Ctrl + Alt + A.

Is it possible to perform a search in my entire account (both individual and team accounts)?

No. You need to search for individual and team notes separately.

Are there separate sets of note tags, reminders, and shortcuts for individual and team accounts?

Yes. Notes and notebooks are viewed separately, so each account has its own set of tags, reminders, and shortcuts.

Can I create a note link inside an individual note that points to a team note, and vice versa?

Yes. In order to view the linked note, you need to be signed in to an account in which you have permission to view the note.

Can notebook stacks contain both individual and team notebooks?

No. Notebooks are viewed separately, so stacks can only be used to organize notebooks within the same view.

Why can’t I find a note I saved (or forwarded) to my default notebook?

Your individual and team accounts each have their own default notebook. Try searching for the note in both your individual and team default notebooks.
