Create a notebook

Notebooks are how notes are organized in Evernote, and are commonly used to separate notes by category, location, or purpose. For example, you might create one notebook called 'Home Remodel' and one called 'Schoolwork' to keep these types of notes separate and easier to find.

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

  • Work projects
  • Travel planning
  • Creative projects
  • Company resources
  • Receipts
  • Contracts or documents
