Evernote Analysis

Evernote Analysis function has been added to MyStats from V.1.30!

This new function came about in a brainstorming with Evernote people and Kenji (Creator of MyStats) which took place during a visit to Evernote headquarters in Silicon Valley.

Another aspect of this new function is that it is the first external data handling function of MyStats. Moving forward, we will be adding more new functions which handle the data of other services and apps.

By the way, do you know Evernote?

It is a service with which you remember everything. You can store text, PDFs, photos, web pages, and anything in Evernote and access your data through a PC, iPhone, and various devices wherever you are.
The "Evernote Analysis" function of MyStats was developed for Evernote users. If you are not an Evernote user, you can become one now. Try Evernote with MyStats. Both are for free!

So let me introduce the function. With this function, you can...

Get information from Evernote automatically,

and visualize it with Line Graphs.

What you can get is "# of Notes" and "Monthly Usage".

Let's see the step by step instructions.

Tap on the new button "Add "Evernote Analysis"" on the Record menu, and then tap on "Analyze # of Notes".

Add a new Daily Activity by tapping YES,

and then, import data by tapping YES, again.

If you are not logged in to Evernote, the login screen will appear, so login to Evernote. That's it. You are done with "# of Notes".

In the same way, let's also add "Monthly Usage" and import data.

Now you are ready to analyze them.

Access the Daily Activity Record screen from the Record menu.

You can see the new Daily Activities you have just added.

By tapping "Analyze" and then "Evernote: # of Notes",

you can see how you have created notes ever since you started using Evernote.

Let's check "Monthly Usage" as well.

What you see here is just a dot.  It's because only current Monthly Usage information is available at Evernote.  We cannot access past data, like yesterday or last month. So what you can see here is only today's data which you have just imported.

However, as long as you keep this Daily Activity and launch MyStats on a daily basis, Monthly Usage information will be imported automatically.  So with no efforts, after a while, you will have a Line Graph like this.

In Evernote, you can find out what your current Monthly Usage is at anytime.  But as I said, you cannot see past information.  "How much did I store in Evernote last month?" If you wanted to know, there was no way to find out.

With the Evernote Analysis function of MyStats, just by using MyStats, Monthly Usage information is recorded automatically and you can see it on the Line Graph.

Do you like this?  I think, this is a great tool for Evernote users:-)

If you are new to MyStats, please start using MyStats with very simple activities, such as Weight, Time I Got Up, and so on.

Do NOT try to start with many activities and overwhelm yourself;-)
