How to organize notes into different notebooks

Notebooks are the most common way of organizing notes in Evernote, and are commonly used to separate notes by category, location or purpose. For example, you might create one notebook called 'Work Notes' and one called 'Personal Notes' to keep these types of notes separate and easier to find.

What can you do with notebooks?

Organize notes into notebooks so you can browse, search, and share similar notes easily, for example you may create a notebook for:

  • Work projects
