How to use note history to view older versions of a note

Note history is only available to Evernote Premium and Business users.

Note history allows you to view older versions of a note. Notes in your account are automatically backed up periodically, and note history allows you to view and/or restore these older revisions.

    4. Click on the date to preview and find the note version you want to restore.
    5. Click Import to restore the note.

    The restored version will appear in the Import... notebook. Import does not overwrite or change the current version of the note.
