Google Drive and Evernote Connect for Time-Saving Efficiency

Adding to Evernote from Google Drive just got very easy!

Google Drive and Evernote are both time-savers in and of themselves.

We use both tools quite a bit here at The Time Finder, so we were happy to read about a new Beta version of Evernote that links the two. The creation of a seamless connection that allows you to quickly find material in your Google Drive and add it to your Evernote Notes is a big winner when it comes to working efficiently on-line.

Indeed, having these two services linked means you no longer need to switch between apps – saving time and cutting down on potential distractions.


To get started, just open up Evernote in your browser and click the button that says “Try Beta.”

Connect to Google Drive

Next, Make the connection.

Next you’ll authenticate your account, making the connection real.

Once the two accounts are connected, the fun begins! You’ll be able to access your Google Drive from Evernote on Android devices and from the web on Chrome.

There are plans to expand this availability to other platforms, too.

The Google Drive – Evernote Connection

Here’s how the experience is described on the Google Drive Blog:

Instead of pasting links to files, Drive content added to Evernote will now include thumbnail previews and a rich viewing experience. You can also search Drive from Evernote and any changes to files in Drive will sync automatically with your notes. There’s even a handy icon in the Evernote toolbar to jump right into your Drive.

Following is a quick video that gives you an overview of how this pairing works in practice:

The less you need to switch back and forth between screens the more you will be able to stick with your train of thought and simplify your workflow. This enhances your efficiency and productivity – and definitely helps you find time over the long haul.

So, if you’re an Evernote and Google Drive user, why not check out this enhancement. Give it a look, and let us know what you think – we’d love to hear!
