How to use note links to connect between notes

To create a link to a specific note using Evernote for Windows or Mac, right-click the note in the note list and choose Copy Note Link. A link to that note will be placed in the system clipboard, ready to be pasted into whichever application you like. These links can be used to link directly between notes as well as linking to specific notes from within other applications or contexts. Links to individual notes will also work on our Android and iOS clients.

Note that the links generated using Copy Note Link are only valid when you're browsing within Evernote. Others will be able to use these links in Evernote if they have access to all the linked notes.

To share a specific note with other users with a link through email or instant messaging, use the "Copy shared note URL to clipboard..." function in the Sharing menu.

One of the coolest things you can do with Note Links is create a Table of Contents for a set of notes inside of a notebook. This is particularly useful if you are sharing a notebook with other individuals.

To do this:

  1. Grab the Note Link to a note by right-clicking on the note and selecting to Copy Note Link.
  2. Create a New Note in your notebook or go to a note where you’d like that Note Link to go.
  3. Paste the link (it will show up as the hyperlinked title of your note) into your New Note or existing note.
  4. Do this for all other notes you’d like to include in your table of contents, putting them in the order that you’d like people to look through the notebook.

You can perform this as a batch action, too. Select multiple notes, right click and then add them to your new or existing note.
