Recipient only sees the top section of your notes

The entire note is always saved into a notebook in your Evernote account. If that notebook or note link is shared with other users they will see the entire note. For more details, see the How to Share Notes and Notebooks knowledge base article.

Add Reminders


To add an Evernote Reminder to any notebook page captured into Evernote, simply check the Reminder box at the top of the page. Reminders will appear in the Reminder checklist at the top of your Evernote note list. Inside Evernote, you can edit a Reminder to add an alarm notification and email.

Evernote makes it easy for you to remember more about people you meet and saves everything into Contact Notes. Use the Business Card Camera to scan cards and save contact info, such as a name, a title, an address, additional LinkedIn profile details, and more.

The cover of the Evernote Business Notebook is the perfect dark surface for capturing light business cards. The inside paper makes a good background for capturing dark business cards. To learn more about business card scanning, see the knowledge base article.


Next, review a few tips to ensure you get the best results from the Document Camera.

Tips & Techniques


Follow these steps to get good results capturing from Evernote Notebooks.

  1. Write clearly with dark ink for best handwriting recognition.
  2. Lay the notebook flat on a dark background. Edges of the page will be detected automatically as long as there is a contrast between the page and background.
  3. Lay the green bookmark string flat between the two pages so the page edge is detected and cropped.
  4. Turn on your device's flash and capture images in good, even background light (between many lights, or in indirect sunlight).
  5. Always use the Document Camera in the latest version of Evernote.
  6. Position your device so that the entire page, including the edges, is visible within the Document Camera viewing area. It's also a good practice to position your device parallel to the page so the edges are aligned with the viewing frame as well. This ensures solid focus and good resolution.
  7. Ensure that the image is in focus by tapping anywhere on the image capture area of the screen immediately before capturing an image.
  8. Capture one page at a time.
