Medley visualizes your Evernote notebooks
and lets you see how your usage
has changed over time.
This application is part of research project run by Wesley Willett, Petra Isenberg, and Jean-Daniel Fekete from the Aviz information visualization group at INRIA (the French national research institute for computer science & automation) that seeks to better understand digital notetaking practices and build new tools to visually summarize and connect notes.
Once you authenticate with Evernote, our server will download information about your notes (but not their contents) and generate visualizations like the one below that show your Evernote use over time. Depending on the size of your notebooks, this can take anywhere from a few seconds to more than an hour.
Afterwards, you'll have the option to share anonymized metadata about your notebooks to help us gain a better understanding of how people use digital notetaking tools.
- When you click the button below, you will be asked to authenticate Medley using your Evernote account. This login is handled securely by Evernote using OAuth without revealing your password to Medley.
- Medley will download metadata (dates, times, note sizes, titles, etc.) about the notes, resources, and tags used in your notebooks in order to generate visualizations of your Evernote usage - the content of your notes will never be downloaded or accessed.
- No metadata about your notes will be shared without your explicit consent. You will have the opportunity to review all of the data before deciding whether or not to share anonymized metadata with us.
- At any point in the process, you can choose to permenantly delete all information about your notes and account from our servers.
