I’ve just discovered a service called Zapier that allows you to link Evernote to various services and perform tasks. For example this post was created as a note in a folder in Evernote and then posted to WordPress. I’ve also set up Zapier to create calendar entries from notes in evernote. I found this service in an excellent article on running a business using evernote at:
My evernote is structured somewhat differently to that suggested in the article as the bulk of my evernote is used for holding notes covering reports, product information, emails, images for clients, different services and products for research that I use for my day job. Personal notes are a very small part of my notes. Plus my tagging system is out of control. I have several hundred tags to allow be to filter by service type by client by note type. I must do something to sort out the tagging as it’s so unwieldy now that I don’t use tags to find things. I’ve also had an issue where I have failed to find notes when searching, so I suppose sorting out note titles is the next project. But with just under 6,000 notes that will take a while!
Zapier is pretty good and covers a wide range of services not just evernote, but after the 14 day trial the account defaults to the free acount which allows you to only have 5 zaps and 100 tasks per month, and runs at 15 minute intervals. The next account is $20 per month that allows you to have 3,000 tasks per month and 20 zaps. For me that is expensive as I am not using it for business so cannot claim back but I can see the flexibility of it could allow me to set up more than 5 zaps provided with the free account.
I’m going to keep using this service as so far it looks pretty neat. The only thing I can think of that it lacks is Flickr integration.
