interesting idea, I think we can manage to do something like
that when we'll have tables, but I don't if the templates interest
the majority of Bear users. Which one of Evernote's templates
you'll use for your work?
I already have my own templates set up in Bear, so I'm all good. I shared the Evernote blog entry as I thought it was interesting and something for you to add to your product roadmap for future consideration. :-)
As Bear gets more mature and you move from early adopter customers to mainstream customers, you may need to thinking about this type of ancillary support. :-)
May I ask how are your Bear templates structured and which use
case they cover?
I think templates are a really interesting pattern and we have
integrated some version of them in our apps but, in same cases,
they have not been really useful.
I've attached the two templates I'm currently using. They are fairly simple. What I've done is that I've pinned these notes so they are always at the top and easy to find. I've also assigned them to a tag called templates. I've also added other tags for the categories they are frequently used in, e.g. telephone calls.
It's not the fanciest or most elegant way, but it's good enough for me at the moment. The biggest issues I run into with my templates are when performing searches. There isn't a way for me to easily tell which note have unchecked items (a feature that Evernote supports) or greater control with respects to tags, i.e. finding notes with no tags or bulk actions.
