Why move and share content?

Simplify how you share

You may have work-related content you’ll need to move from an individual account to a team account.

We recommend that you create spaces in the team account to share with your team. In just 4 steps you can share multiple notes, notebooks, and projects easily.

Here is a quick snap shot of what a space can look like below. Your space will include what's new, pinned notes, plus notes and notebooks you move here.

Spaces in Evernote Business

Step 1
Move content from your individual account to your team account

Moving notes & notebooks

When you choose to move content, you are removing the notebooks from your individual account and placing them in the team account.

How to move content

  1. On a computer web browser, log into your Evernote Teams account at
  2. Select your name in the top left corner and choose Account info... from the drop down menu.
  3. On the Account Summary page scroll to the bottom and select Move Notebooks.
  4. Enter your credentials for your team account.
  5. Place a check in the boxes next to each notebook you wish to move and select Move Notebooks. Note: You can move away from this page, but leave this browser window open while content is moving.

Now you're ready for Step 2!


  • You can only move 50 notebooks at a time.
  • You will see a message stating "We're moving your notebooks!" letting you know the request is being processed. You will receive an email when the move is complete.
  • If you choose copy instead of move, your notes and notebooks will create a copy to the Teams account. Keep in mind any changes made to one copy will not automatically update the other copy. For this reason, we recommend moving content.

Step 2
Set up your space

Create spaces by team, project, or idea

See Getting started with Spaces to learn how to create a space.

Once you move content to the team account you’ll want to create a space and invite your team as needed. You’ll only have to invite a team member one time to a new space, as they will have access to all notes and notebooks that are saved in that specific space.
