I'm trying to find an answer to this issue since pretty some time but I'm not able to find any valuable and hiagh-quality answer.
The issue is related to the organization of my work thorugh GMAIL and other google tools. In order to improve my productivity I would love to have one interated desktop application (or suite of applications) which I can use to access documents, emails, events and activities from my calendar, and my personal notes in a wiki-like style.
At the moment I use:
gmail for emails (local copy of all emails with my email client thorugh IMAP),
calendar to store events, appointments, meetings dates etc which is great because it is connected to gmail, I can send reminders and simply use emails to create new events
documents (on my hd and partially on gDrive)
Wonderful! What do I miss, then?
One feature that I really miss, and that only evernote is able to fullfill, is to take note of my day-by-day work. I need basically a note-taking software. For this, evernote is great.
But it would be even greater if I was able to do everything from one single integrated environment. I understand that for files that would be a bit difficult, so what I'm searching now is some software or some gmail plugin which allow me to take notes and search among notes.
Unfortunately the level of integration of evernote into gmail is very low.
Also, I considered using emails with notes, which might be an option, but the problem is that emails cannot be edited.
The best choice to me, to let you understand which is my 'dream', is ti have a sort of wiki into the gmail. Something like a folder with subfolders where I can organize all my notes, attach files and pictures...
Maybe something like an "evernote" folder into gmail.
It would also work for me to have a software (running under macosx) with all these features together.
Does something like this exist?
Can I achieve it by means of additional components to gmail, macosx mail, or other software (thunderbird)?
