Create internal note links

Internal note links allow you to link from one note to another note, making it easy to quickly jump between notes within Evernote. Some examples where this might be helpful:

  • You keep a running log of weekly meeting notes. You can create a "Meeting Notes" note, then link to the individual weekly meeting notes which are written in individual notes.
  • You are writing a novel. You can create a table of contents note which links to each chapter, or you can add a "Next chapter" link at the end of each note which allows you to jump to the next note.

Note: If you share an internal note link, the recipient will only be able to view the note if they already have access to it. In other words, sharing an internal note link with someone is not the same as sharing a note with that person. To learn how to share a note, visit Share notes.
