How Context enhances your notes

With Evernote Premium and Business, Evernote displays a variety of relevant content that's related to what you're working on, as you're working. Based on intelligent indexing of your notes, Context means your related notes, people, and high-quality articles are shown to you when you need them most.

Our goal is to show you information that will help you improve the quality of your work, without you having to think about searching for it. It’s like having a super smart research assistant always by your side.

  • Notes from your own account: As you type, Evernote searches through your existing notes or notes a coworker has shared with you, and surfaces anything related to what you're currently working on.
  • People from your network: If you include the name of a person in a note, and you're connected to them on LinkedIn, Context brings up their LinkedIn profile. 
  • Articles from trusted news sources: Evernote provides you with relevant content for free from trusted news sources* such as The Wall Street Journal, for example.

* The growing list of Context sources include The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Inc. Magazine, Pando Daily, Inc. Magazine, LinkedIn, CrunchBase, TechCrunch, and Factiva (Evernote Business only). News content is currently only available in English.

FAQ

 

What information does Context show?

Context can display several types of information when it finds something relevant to what you’re working on: your prior notes, shared notes from your coworkers if you’re an Evernote Business user, related news and articles from Dow Jones and our other partners, and relevant people from LinkedIn.

 

Is this advertising?

No. Evernote does not get paid based on the number of views or clicks. We have no financial incentive to show any articles or other content. We only show things that we think are useful to our users. We don’t share user account information with our partners and we allow users to determine which Context sources they want to see, or to turn the feature off completely.

 

Does Evernote share any user data with publishers or other partners?

No. If you click on a Context-suggested article and it opens in an Evernote note or a browser, publishers will see these clicks as web visits, just like they would if you went to their website on your own. Publishers do not see any connections between those views and an individual Evernote user and they never see the content of your notes.

 

How does Evernote make money from Context?

Evernote makes money by providing products and features end users are happy to pay for. We think Context is a powerful feature that will help people do their best, most informed work. It’s one of several features that people enjoy when they sign up for Evernote Premium or Evernote Business.

 

Who is Context available to?

Context is available to all Evernote Premium and Evernote Business customers.

 

Which versions of Evernote support Context?

You can view Context on Evernote for Mac, Windows, and Android.

 

How can I customize Context?

In your Preferences menu, you can select what types of Context results you’d like to see: related notes, articles or information about people and companies. You can further customize your results by selecting which content providers you’d like to see content from.
