Evernote Web Clipper Gmail Capture – Archive Your Email With A Click

Are you a Gmail user? Do you keep everything in Gmail, or do you like to save at least some of your email elsewhere? If you like to capture emails to Evernote, you may not realize that the Evernote Web Clipper has a great Gmail clipper built in. Here’s how the Evernote Web Clipper Gmail capture works.

You may be familiar with the Evernote Web clipper for clipping web pages. If not, you can install it here.

When you hit the clipper button while in Gmail, the usual options change. You’ll now have two options: Email and Screenshot.

When you hit the Web Clipper button, the Gmail interface will fade to the background and you’ll see a cleaned up version of the email on your screen.

If it is a thread of emails that you are clipping, you will see them all with a Select all messages checkbox at the top.

If you leave that checked, all messages in the thread will be captured to one Evernote note. If you uncheck it, you’ll then have the option to select only the important messages you’d like to keep.

Once you’ve selected your messages, chosen your Notebook and Tags (if desired), hit the Save button.

In Evernote, your email thread is nicely captured and there’s an Open conversation in Gmail link if you want to go back to the source.

Hi Brooks, do you know if there is an option to import the labels of an email in Gmail directly to Evernote as a Evernote tags?

    I’m not aware of a way to do that, but that would be cool! Maybe an IFTTT recipe or something?

This does not work for firefox. Works in Chrome. Is there a way to turn it on in firefox?

It could do but it depends what email clients you use

I currently subscribe to Evernote Plus. I got this subscription because I can forward my emails to my Evernote account. I guess this feature (Gmail Web Clipper) makes my Plus subscription unnecessary?
