Similar to Google Keep and Microsoft OneNote, Evernote is designed so that updates, including notes and adding new notes, are automatically synced between devices logged into the same account. As long as you have an active internet connection, the changes can be displayed in real time without any intervention on your part.
When you edit a note from your Evernote desktop app, you’ll see a “All changes saved” notification in the upper right corner, indicating that your changes have been saved and will automatically be synced to your account. Unfortunately, the desktop app also lacks a manual sync button, so you won’t be able to sync your notes when you want to. On the other hand, if you’re using the Evernote mobile app to edit your notes, a link icon will appear next to the note you’re editing to let you know that the update is now synced. If you want to sync all your documents manually using the mobile app, follow these steps:
- Click the gear icon in the left panel.
- Select sync.
- Click on “sync now.”
