Evernote -- Help setting up a paperless reference filing system that i can use
Hey i just decided that along with my high tech digital tools ie omnifocus i wanted to take it to the next level. Using omnifocus is great but its not really designed for filing and such. My question is how do i set up a GTD filing system in evernote? What are some good practices that could help me go paperless
And no flying cars, either.
Paperless, huh? I still have a 90's T-shirt somewhere with a drawing of a guy in a suit, sitting on a wooden crate in an empty room, with a stylus in his hand and wearing big VR glasses, captioned "Virtual Office"... why aren't we there yet?

I love Evernote. 9 times out of 10 I'll be looking for something and, voilá, it's there in Evernote. But I HAD to commit to scanning everything that passed through my hands that I wanted to keep. If I didn't do that, I couldn't trust the system.
As a Connect member, you'd have access to all kinds of Evernote posts, too. And I'm sure there are plenty on the public forums as well. Good luck, Phidelt!
Good Guide to Paperless Workflow
This was a great reference in setting up my paperless workflow.

So to set up evernote i need to have folders A-Z
So from reading the above posts and others i've come to the conclusion that i need to have a filing system designated by alphabetical order, i have no problem with this but have no experience with it either. Say i have a GTD folder that goes in the G part of the filing system yeah?
If anyone else could help me along with learning this i would greatly appreciate it or is it as simple as listing things in alphabetical order.
