I have been using toodledo for a while now, and never used notebooks. I search the forums on the topic but most post dealt with a specfic issue.
My question is more of an overview question, what are notebooks and how are they used? And does evernote supplement or replace the need for notebooks?
I don't see TD notes as replacements for EN notes for two reasons:
1) EN notes are more powerful and can contain graphics and links, and more.
2) I've been using EN for 7 years, and have a lot of notes I don't want to have to move
So I use TD notes for more transient information, and EN for stuff I think I'll want for a while. Once a week, I meet with my boss to discuss my work, and I keep a list of items I need to discuss with him to take with me. I keep that in a TD note, where it's easy and quick to access, because TD is open all day every day on my desktop. Before the meeting, I copy and paste the TD note into an email and send it to my phone to take to the meeting. After the meeting, I copy and paste the TD note to EN so I have a record of it for a while. These eventually get deleted. (My boss has yet to ask me, "What did we discuss in our meeting 2 years ago?")
Of course, it's up to you. Some prefer to have all their notes in one place, others, like me, find a use for both. It's nice to have both options.
