Evernote Integration

Use the 123FormBuilder – Evernote integration to let your friends, business partners, colleagues and clients send you notes and reminders in a private or shared notebook through form submissions. You can send the following information from your web forms to Evernote:

  • Note Title
  • Note Content
  • Note Tags
  • Reminder Time
  • Reminder Done Time
  • Source URL
  • File Attachments

Add the Evernote application from the Settings – Applications section of your form and customize your integration as follows:

If you’re not logged in, you will be redirected to the login page from Evernote where you’ll need to provide your username and password.

2. Hit Authorize or Re-authorize to give 123FormBuilder access to Evernote.

3. In the customization lightbox, in the Required Fields subsection, choose the notebook where you want notes to be sent. The notebooks listed first are your own, followed by the ones shared with you by other users and businesses. Each form submission will create a new note in the notebook you select.

Provide a note title in the box labeled Title and/or associate any appropriate fields from the dropdown list. If you use form fields, their shortcodes will be replaced with the user input provided at form submission. Mark the note title as a required field in your Form Editor, otherwise the integration may fail. Also, note that the note title length can not exceed 255 characters.

5. Use predefined values or field associations to add tags to your notes. Evernote standard users can add a total of 100 tags, while business users can add up to 10,000. A tag can not exceed more than 100 characters.
6. If you want form users to create reminders for the notes they send, you need to have a Date field and a Time field in your form. Match them with the Reminder Time and the reminder will be created at form submission. If you do not assign a start time, the reminder will be automatically set for 8.00 AM. If you also set a date and time for the Reminder Done Time parameter, then the reminder will be instantly marked as completed.

You can create associations for a total number of 10 upload fields which, together, can not exceed 25 MB in size. You can associate a Website field (or a Text Box field with an URL validation) with the Source URL field from Evernote.
