What happens when multiple users edit the same note?
Evernote detects when multiple users are editing or updating a note at the same time. Once a user clicks inside a note and starts editing, other users can only view the note, but are prevented from editing it.
Note: This feature is currently available on Evernote for Windows Desktop; Evernote for Mac; Evernote for Android; Evernote for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch; and Evernote Web
Notification that someone else is editing a note (Windows)
A notification appears near the top of the note to let users know when a note is being edited by someone else. Once this notification disappears, the note is no longer locked and is available for others to edit.

If the option is available, and you choose to select “Edit anyway,” Evernote creates a duplicate note with any edits made. This duplicate note is automatically saved to a notebook named “Conflicting Changes...” along with a unique timestamp. Users are responsible for determining which changes they would like to keep or discard.
