Meetings are boring and tedious. Taking copious notes generally doesn’t help matters too much. Want to avoid doing a little extra busywork? Evernote can interpret notes for you from a photo.
This tip comes from Evernote’s productivity ambassador Joshual Zerkel:
Meetings with other professionals can be productive, but taking notes can be a real chore. At your next meeting with a client, vendor, or consultant, instead of frantically writing down notes from the meeting and trying to copy everything that’s written on a whiteboard, try snapping a photo of the whiteboard with your phone, and send that pic to Evernote. Since Evernote can read the handwriting in the photo, you’ll be able to easily search for and refer back to that whiteboard later on when you need it.
While these notes might not be terribly comprehensive, or you may have to take a few photos to capture everything that makes it onto the board (in case something gets erased), it’s a really handy way to have an easy, searchable reminder without doing much work at all.
