Move notes from an individual account to a Teams account

If you have work-related notes you’d like to move from an individual account to a Teams account, you can either move individual notes or you can move entire notebooks.

Move notes from an individual account to a Teams account

There are several ways to move notes or notebooks from an individual account to a Teams account.

  • Move one note at a time

    Available in Evernote for Mac and Windows only

    1. Export the note to an ENEX file from your individual account.
    2. Switch to your team account.
    3. Import the ENEX file into your team account.
  • Move multiple notes at once

    Available in Evernote for Mac and Windows only

    1. In your note list, hold the Cmd (Mac) or Ctrl (Windows) key and click on individual notes to select them, or hold the Shift key and select a range of notes.
    2. Export the notes to an ENEX file from your individual account.
    3. Switch to your team account.
    4. Import the ENEX file into your team account.
  • Move entire notebooks

    Available in Evernote Web only

    When moving notebooks from an individual account to a team account, you'll have the following options: copy notebooks or move notebooks.

    Selecting "Copy Notebooks" will copy notebooks from your individual account to your team account but leave your notebook structure exactly as it is in your individual account. Selecting "Move Notebooks" will move notebooks from your individual account to your team account but will then delete the notebooks in your individual account.

    To copy or move your notebooks, follow these steps:

    1. Go to the account settings for your team account.
    2. Click the green Copy Notebooks or Move Notebooks button.
    3. Enter the login information for your individual account.
    4. Select the notebooks to be moved from your individual account to your team account.

    Note: Notebook shares and note links will not be preserved.

Some things to keep in mind:

Here are some important things to keep in mind when moving or copying entire notebooks using the "Copy notebooks" and "Move notebooks" functionality in your account settings:

    • You can only convert 50 notebooks at a time.
    • You will receive an email confirmation when the notebooks have been successfully copied or moved. Note: Do not close out of your web browser until you receive this confirmation.
    • Shared notebooks and your default notebook will not appear in this list. If you wish to move a shared or default notebook, we recommend moving the notes into a notebook that you own and then moving or copying that notebook to your business account.
