We’re thrilled to announce Notebook’s latest update—and it’s a big one. First, we’ve rolled out the two most requested features. That’s right, Notebook has arrived on Windows and you can tag notes to stay organized across devices. Second, we’re excited to announce new artificial intelligence capabilities with Zia, the Zoho intelligent assistant. These AI capabilities are possible thanks to Notebook’s place within the Zoho Office Suite, which today is making a major leap forward. Third, Notebook is now integrated with Zoho Flow, an integration platform with 250+ connections, and Zoho Writer, an online word processor. Last, and certainly not least, we’ve brought the Notebook Web Clipper to the Edge browser.
Notebook Arrives on Windows
We’ve been hearing for quite a while how important it is to bring Notebook to Windows. Today we’re proud to have delivered that. Our biggest priority was bringing the same thoughtful, beautiful experience to Windows that we’ve established on other devices. It took us a while, but we think we’ve succeeded. The Windows version of Notebook is also available for the Microsoft Surface so you can switch from desktop to tablet at anytime.
Tag Your Notes
If there was one thing we’ve been asked to do more than a Windows app, it’s tagging. And now it’s here and available across all devices. With tagging, you can categorize notes by topic, category, project, or however else you see fit to stay organized. Tagging is as simple as adding a hashtag before any word within a Text Card. For other note cards, simply tap more options, choose “Add Hashtag,” and then your keyword. With that said, some of you may be wondering: Can I migrate all my tags from Evernote? Yes. We have updated our migration tool so you can easily bring all your notes, content, and tags from Evernote to Notebook.
AI Capabilities: Zia Comes to Notebook
Zoho’s AI, Zia, is now available in the Zoho Office Suite. Since Notebook is a part of that suite, Zia is now in Notebook. Now you can give voice commands to search for a note or create a new one. You can even ask Zia to go find the top trending video on YouTube, or the latest recipe on The New York Times cooking section, and save it as a Smart Card. Zia will also help you keep organized by suggesting which notebook a note belongs in, or which tag would be best for your note.
Integrations: Zoho Flow and Zoho Writer
These days doing work usually involves using more than one app. The Notebook and Zoho Flow integration helps you connect Notebook to more than 250 apps so you can spend less time on mindless tasks, and more time doing things you love. For example, you can connect Notebook and Gmail to save starred mails as note cards. You can also connect Notebook and Wunderlist and have every single task saved as a note card. So go ahead and connect your favorite apps with Flow to simplify your tasks and be able to do more.
As a part of our Office release, we are also happy to debut a new integration with Zoho Writer. Now you can push your notes to Writer when you’re ready to turn your ideas into a document. To do this on mobile for example, simply open a note, tap more options, then choose “Copy to Writer.” Once in Writer, you’ll have tons of formatting options, plus the ability to collaboratively edit your document in real time, track changes, and more.
A Cutting Edge Clipper
Want to save a webpage as a note card? The Notebook Web Clipper is now available on the Edge browser. This means you can now clip the web, take screenshots, and read articles without ads on every major browser.
We hope you enjoy this release. We’ve got a number of things planned this year, including new note cards and Smart Cards. We’ve also got some exciting integrations with popular apps in the works.
