    More great tips, Scott. I like to mark all of my notes as archived so that only new notes created show up in the "Notes" section of Keep. Any note I want to be "Active" I apply a reminder, (but still archive it). On the web I work from the Reminders section. On Android, I use the widget with the Reminders showing – reminder notes sort by due date. Most of my notes are setup with repeating reminders so they cycle back thru the sort order and when I'm completely done with the entire note, i delete the reminder. I treat the Notes section similar to an Inbox. This is where new notes start, and I regularly process, label, applying reminders if necessary, then archiving (or delete). Some examples are note lists for work projects, home projects, events, travel, workouts, etc. I choose to color my notes and add pictures based on the note only, there is no ryhme or reason for how I color them. Keep up the tips and videos, I enjoy them.

    2:25 adding location based reminder (ex. safeway, TJs, target, bestbuy) will pop item when device is near location. 7:25 mobile voice recorded notes transcribed to txt. would be nice to see a demo of how to record and send it to keep.

    G-Keep keeps getting hung up, like it has to stop to load all the notes or just re-page (lot of Youtube links); move most Notes to Archive, still hangs up to the point of being unusable.

    Works ok on Windows machines and cell phones, but Chromebook is almost unusable, it hangs up so badly.

    To Me I Wish The Note Would Go Directly Into Your Folder/Label Instead Of Putting Them Into Your Archive. I Like The Pined Function. If I'm Doing Some Thing Wrong/Missing Some Thing Let Me Know.

    I’m a property maintenance manager and use this everyday. Shopping list, work schedules, request for time off, repairs need per apt. My employees get the work assignment via Keep. I love it, and tried others but keep going back to Keep!

    At 6:00 there is mentioned an "annotation button", the pen icon. My version of Keep doesn't have this. Mobile Android version has it, but not the desktop version. ??

    Hi, very great videos (I learned a lot thanks !). The voice recognition is awesome when I do it in french (I'm french) ; meanwhile when done in english this is far from getting a decent result (I work in a international context for years and thought my englih was decent). Any idea to bypass this difficulty ?

    I love adding Labels, so that I can access those notes within a particular subject. For example, I have a kid in her 2nd year of college and one in her senior year of high school. I have a label called "College Money" for all of their FAFSA, Scholarship window opening and deadlines. I may place a list for each kid to check off as they go along for things that they need to handle, such as getting their letters of rec and community service hours inputted into their transcripts, and so on.

    I am very bad with papers, like if someone gives me a business card or wants to share with me a recipe, for example, I know it would be lost in a stack of papers or somewhere else out of sight (… and out of mind…), Also, I prefer to save paper in favor of trees, environment, ecology, etc. So… what I do is to take a picture of that paper, and immediately click share/open in/send or copy to G Keep. When it opens, my pic is therer attached. I only add a title and brief note and pin it to work in that note later (add to contacts, or save in OneNote, label it and add category color IF I will leave it there for quick access, Also, if I’m in a store, for example and I see a product to compare or look up later, I do the same of taking a picture to save there with title, pin and note + reminder. When you delete a picture from your gallery or folder, it stays in G Keep. I have also taken quick notes there to review later. In summary, I am realizing now that I am using G Keep as a drop box to manage later all what I add there either to keep there sorted for quick reference, or to work with them to take actions (research, move, share, colaborate in G Maps, etc).
