How to use note links to connect between notes
Note links allow you to create link from one note to another note. You can create note links in Evernote for Mac, Windows, iOS, Andorid, and Web.
How to create note links
To create a link to a note, follow the steps for your operating system below.
Open your note list, right-click the note you want to link to, then select Copy Note Link.
Open your note list, right-click the note you want to link to, then select Copy Internal Link.
iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
Open the note, tap the share button (box with upward arrow), tap Copy link, then chose Private link.
Open the note, tap the options button (three dots), then tap Copy internal link.
The new Evernote Web: Open the note, click the options button (three vertical dots) at the top of the note, then click Copy internal link.
Older version of Evernote Web: Open the note, click the more options button (three horizontal dots) at the top of the note, then click Copy notelink.
Once created, a link to that note will be placed in the system clipboard, ready to be pasted into whichever application you like. These links can be used to link directly between notes as well as linking to specific notes from within other applications or contexts.
Note: Links generated using 'Copy Note Link' are only valid when you're browsing within Evernote. Others will be able to use these links in Evernote if they have access to all the linked notes. To share a link to an individual note with all others, send a Work Chat to any email address or create a public link (URL) for that note and paste into your email or social networking application.
Use note links to create a table of contents
Use note links to create a table of contents for a set of notes inside of a notebook. This is particularly useful if you are sharing a notebook with other individuals.
To create a table of contents using note links:
- Create a link to the first note in your contents list. Right-click the note in your note list and choose Copy Note Link.
- Create a new note and paste the link (it shows up as the hyperlinked title of your note) in it.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 for all other notes you’d like to include in your table of contents. Rearrange the links in the order you’d like people to view the notebook. You may even want to add this table of contents note as a reminder in the reminder list at the top of the notes list so it's easy for people to access.
You can perform this as a batch action, too. Select multiple notes and select Create Table of Contents Note.
