Import your notes from Evernote

Hope you’ve been having a great week so far. If you’ve switched over from Evernote to Mammoth, it’s going to get even better. We’ve just released possibly the simplest way to bring in your notes from Evernote into Mammoth.

Here’s how:

1. Open the importer from your activity dashboard, or go directly to mammothhq.com/evernote.

2. While Mammoth can take in ALL of your notes, here’s a chance to organize life a bit: skip notebooks past their “best by” date, bringing in only what’s still relevant.

3. Additionally, use the Mini Mammoth browser extension to cherry-pick notes from the Evernote website: select what you want to clip, and drop it onto a Mammoth board.

Do share your feedback and we’d be happy to improve things even further. As always, the entire team is happy to help anytime – reply or just use your Talk to Us board.

Mammoth, My Virtual Office

If you have some downtime this weekend, you might find the following guest post by @webgrrl to be a useful read. She’s a multi-genre digital artist with a diverse portfolio and a passion for creating innovative visuals through graphic design and photography, currently living in beautiful Australia. She uses Mammoth as her virtual office to interact with clients. Read on for the how and why.


I’m a freelance digital artist with clients in various types of industries – hospitality, fashion, arts, events, etc., in Australia and overseas. My main work with them consists of graphic design and WordPress design & implementation.

Over the last few years I have been searching and trying out various sites that I can use as a ‘Virtual Office’ – a place where I can show my clients ongoing work; you know for feedback, proof reading, etc. since design is an iterative process. As I receive a lot of emails everyday – I prefer to interact with my clients in a central ‘virtual office’ instead of over emails or Facebook messages.

I came across Mammoth late last year and instantly liked it because of its simplicity. At that time I was already using InVision and Kona – but I noticed most of my clients didn’t want to go though a complicated sign-up process; also most of them found these applications difficult to understand. Talking about my clients, they’re mostly women in their late 20s to mid 40s, and a lot of them are not very computer or net savvy. But with Mammoth, they don’t seem to have any problems finding their way around. They especially liked hearing they can drag and drop the images. I told them, “if you can use Facebook, you won’t have any problems in Mammoth!” And for most of them Mammoth worked 🙂

Other things my clients and I like:

  • We especially appreciate how we don’t have to search thru our emails, looking for that attachment we sent many months ago.
  • We also like the fact that we can easily make a to-do list and tick as each project is completed.
  • I love it when a client sends me a msg and I see a little notification on my Chrome browser, even when I am working.
  • I found it really amazing that we were able to find archived project notes & images,when one of my clients had a server crash and was not able to access those files. Lucky we had them safe on Mammoth 🙂
  • I like how the visuals are displayed and graphics are not compressed. It’s also easy for my clients to download the file to see it in it’s full glory.

I LOVE how the Mammoth crew is always open to hearing suggestions and answer my questions pretty quickly, if not instantly.

Mammoth in the news

With another exciting month in the rear-view mirror, here’s a quick run down of recent product updates and Mammoth in the news.

If you’re interested in our story, The Next Web published “Meet the ex-Sony and Microsoft staff building a Mammoth new note-taking app“. They go on to say Mammoth is one of 5 startups from California you should keep an eye on. I was also interviewed by AsianSuccess magazine (video). Achim Meurer’s story describing why he switched to Mammoth from Evernote, was picked up by Tech Cocktail. ListHunt listed Mammoth among fresh tools for entrepreneurs and Eniac Ventures’ in their weekly list of top mobile picks.

We’re able to make Mammoth better because of your feedback. Share your story with us, we’ll be happy to get it published.

Links to YouTube and Google Maps? Play anything in Mammoth

Designers, planners, artists, travelers, DJs, and curators rejoice! As you get ready for the weekend, here’s a little something we cooked up 🙂

Biotech ❤️ Mammoth

If your day involves research and gathering data, you might find the following story helpful. It’s a short video from Anvil Biosciences, a pioneering biotech company out of Stanford, developing life impacting therapies. It’s been an amazing experience to learn how this team of researchers and scientists rely on Mammoth everyday.

“Doing science is tough enough as it is without worrying about the complications of putting together all the data that we accumulate.”

Jack Lin, CEO, Anvil Biosciences kindly took time out of his day to meet with us, and even gave a tour of his facility. He talked about how his lab was using Dropbox, shared spreadsheets and documents, plus many emails to manage any drug’s research lifecycle. Jack further discussed how instead of spreading important research across different services, the team is now using Mammoth to focus on the big picture during long-running research.

Thanks for watching. Interviews like these help us prioritize and deliver on key improvements you would want. Do let us know what you think, and if you have a similar story do reach out to us on your Talk to Us board!

Why I Switched From Evernote to Mammoth

This story was published on Tech Cocktail as “How Mammoth Helped me Clean out my Evernote Junk Drawer”.


This week I wanted to share a story by Achim Meurer (@hdrmeurer), photographer extraordinaire from Austria.

Achim joined Mammoth early on and I remember asking him, “Why did you switch from Evernote to Mammoth?”. Pat came the reply, “This is a very simple question”. Read on.

Why I switched from Evernote to Mammoth

This is a very simple question: Because it’s much more simple and easier to use!

I started years ago using Evernote as a tool to keep things “in mind”, to have a kind of an extended brain, things you want to collect and have access to them if you need them. As Evernote started it was simple and easy to use. A few features which made my daily work much easier. One really cool thing I loved was the so called “web clipper”. An extension for the browser to grab some parts or the entire website with a link to a note in evernote. A very quick way to collect information from the internet.

But then they started adding features, and features, a lot of features, re-designing, and again features with again a new design and so on. This ended up with a totally unusable interface and a way too complicated web clipper. Every time I tried to find something in Evernote I got lost.

Then I spotted Mammoth, a new web based service for collecting informations, sharing and collaborating. It’s very simple, clean design (which I really love, because you don’t get lost!) and easy to use. Exactly what I needed.

So I started using Mammoth every day to give it a try and check out, if I can use it for my daily work. After a while I recognized that I didn’t use Evernote anymore. Only for transferring notes from Evernote to Mammoth 😉

This was about one year ago. Today Mammoth is one of my daily working tools. I deinstalled Evernote a couple of month ago and I tell you what – I don’t miss it! I love the simplicity of Mammoth, very easy way to collaborate with other people in a project, upload files and even share informations with everyone via public boards. There’s an iPhone App and a simple to use web clipper. Everything I need for my daily work.
