Frequently asked questions

I've enabled Evernote notifications on my device. Why am I not receiving them?

If you've enabled notification permissions for Evernote and double-checked your feature-specific notification settings, you should receive notifications on your device. If you've verified your settings and you're still not receiving notifications, check that you don't have any other device settings or tools managing your notifications. These include:

  • Focus Mode, Do Not Disturb Mode, Bedtime Mode - These operating system modes let you set specific times of the day when you don't want your device to show your notifications.
  • Focus-enabling apps and browser extensions - You might have installed another app or browser extension that delays showing your notifications during a specific time period.
  • Notification Priorities (iOS 15) - This new feature lets you specify priority display levels for an individual app's notifications.
  • Screen sharing settings on other apps - Many meeting and collaboration apps have settings to let you delay showing notifications while you're sharing your screen.

How do I make my notifications display longer?

Notifications from Evernote will follow the preferences you set for the app in your device or browser's notification settings. You can set preferences such as display duration, type of banner, lock screen display, sounds, and vibration directly on your device. These settings can be managed in the following places:

  • Mac: Preferences > Notifications
  • Windows: System > Notifications & Actions
  • iOS: Settings > Notifications
  • Android: Settings > Notifications
  • Web browsers: Site settings > Notifications
