How to use templates in Evernote? Evernote is one of the most complete options to manage our notes. It is cross-platform, has smart functions and allows you to implement a personalized organization system. For example, one of the interesting options it provides is the possibility of using templates to give structure to our notes and save time with a predesigned model. Do you know how to use templates? We show you how to choose the templates, customize them and manage them from your account.
Evernote template gallery
Evernote has a gallery of 50 free templates. These cover different topics such as marketing, creative writing, party planning, personal wellness, among other options.
You can see the entire range of Evernote templates without having to log into your account, simply go to this link. You can search for templates by keyword, take a look at the categories or see the collections created under different themes.
For example, if you like creative writing, you will find 4 templates that help you structure your process by creating the profile of the characters, developing a brainstorm and defining the different stages of your novel.
Each template has a brief description of its purpose and instructions for using it in the correct way. And of course, you can always preview the template before adding it to your account.
You can choose templates from the Gallery or from your Evernote account. If you have chosen a template from the Gallery you just have to choose the option “Use template” and it will automatically direct you to your Evernote account.
On the other hand, if you are already using Evernote it is not necessary to log out of your account to search for templates. You will see the option when creating a note. This option will direct you to the Template Gallery without leaving the Evernote app. Once you choose the template you will use, choose the option “Apply note” and a note will be created from the chosen template.

The dynamics are the same whether you use Evernote from the mobile app, web or desktop version. If you are from the Evernote mobile app, you only have to choose “Text Note” and you will see that it says “Start writing or choose a template”
How to customize templates?
Templates give your notes structure, but you can customize them to suit your needs. Besides changing the title and deleting the introduction, you can add your personal touch in a few clicks. For example, you can change the colors (using the color palette for the background of the cells), the font, add more columns, among many options.
Any changes you make will only be reflected in your note and will not affect the Evernote gallery templates.
How to create your own templates?
Evernote allows users with a premium account to create their own templates. It is an interesting option that will save you the task of making the same forms every time we need to use them or resorting to the trick of creating several copies.
The dynamics is simple as it follows the process we apply when creating a note. You give structure to your note by creating a custom template, move the menu (from the three dots) and choose “Save as template”. All the gallery templates that you use and those that you are creating will be saved in the “My templates” section. You can manage these templates by renaming or deleting them. And to apply them you follow the same procedure that we mentioned above to create notes from templates.
Using templates is simple, practical, and can save you a lot of time. You can use as many templates as you want and access all the options to customize them, whether you have a free or premium account.
