Evernote for fitness: Saving your old data.

evernote-for-fitness

Hello and welcome to this new chapter of Evernote for Fitness.  Today, we´ll learn how to:

  • Go paperless/Photo capture.
  • Create a new note.
  • Attach files to your notes.
  • Select multiple notes, and
  • Merge notes.

If you have done your homework, you´ve created your account, and a notebook for fitness. The first thing you should do is save all your workouts and diets. This way, we are preventing future losses.

We can reunite all kind of files in Evernote and make it our fitness command center.  The first feature that caught my eye was photo capture. Grab your old papers, and your phone. Click on the camera icon.

Automatically, Evernote will capture your papers. evernote-photo-capture-2

Honestly, I´m delighted by this feature. Think if you have one thousand sheets, one thousand clicks. Maybe I look lazy, but this is definitely a great idea!
You can save as many pics as you want in a single note, or you can make a note with each pic. Of course, you can reorganize and edit all your notes anytime later.

Let´s save a single pic as a single note first. Click “V” and chose a title for your note (Dark red). Then, click on the notebook icon to pick the notebook you want to save the note (Light red).

Click “V” again to save your new note.

You can also add any file from your phone or pc. If you want to add files from your phone, click “+” to add a new note, and select the clip icon.

I have some recent workouts in my phone memory for this occasion. Again, I save each pic as a note.

Later, I check my new notes on my pc, I realize they are too many. How do I fix this? Select multiple notes, holding “Ctrl” and clicking on the notes you want.  You´ll see your selection on the right side of your screen, and some options. One of them is “Merge”.

You´ll get a single note with all the data:

Pdf, excel files, docs saved on your pc? Press Ctrl + N to create a new note. Then click on the clip button, and add your files. When you finish, you have all your data on all your devices, anytime.
