Support for Markdown, Word, HTML and Evernote file imports.
A way to accommodate many import formats would be to allow users to upload data via json according to the same schema that is currently used for the json export. Then users can mangle their data how they like from the many multitude of platforms! Obviously it's nicer to have it done automatically but we can't expect you to get importing working for every platform.
OneNote. Hear me out. Most large employers have Microsoft 365 and everyone is stuck using OneNote. People want other note taking tools but no one is going to start from 0. Without the ability to easily import, you won't get anywhere. Most note apps ignore OneNote or the facilitation of OneNote notes importing, and I think Mem could lead the way in helping make the transition much easier for people who really would take anything other than OneNote.
To import your notes from other applications, go to Flows from the left sidebar and click on the Imports tile. There you'll find various options for instructions to import your data from other apps.
+1 I cannot fully convert to mem until I can export from evernote and import into mem
The most important upgrade must be the ability to be able to add mems on past and future dates, followed by exports, followed by a prettier task list.
Has anyone done an import via Bear.app to Mem? I see Mike Soylu you mentioned Markdown, which in this instance might be the best option.
Any ETA for the Evernote import? Want to be able to bring in my 7+ years of notes into Mem.
Please ignore the main question. I see that the feature has already been implemented. However, I am noticing that the tags have not been brought in, even though they are included in the Evernote export. Is this a known issue?
When importing from Evernote, would be ideal if we could selectively import based on notebooks and/or tags.
I just noted these as separate feature requests, but importing for Kindle and Instapaper highlights and/or comments would be great - more of an ongoing or easily repeatable import than a one off batch load.
Import should include conversion as well to go from [[ ]] or # in other systems into Mem's + tool
Would really love to see a CSV import and map it to a template to import all my contacts into mem.ai
Is Evernote import coming, or should we convert it to markdown & import markdown?
I want to import all my pages from Notion. That's the only way I could realistically continue using Mem; my whole life is in Notion!
Hey everyone 👋 I’ve got some great news! We’ve made some good progress on Imports and are going to open it up as a private beta for folks who want to help test it out with their data. So email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mem user email address if you'd like to be a part of the private beta and import your Roam, Notion, Bear, iA writer, markdown or Obsidian files 🌈🎉
If you let me import my past 10+ years in Evernote I would switch in an instance
Markdown import would be an absolute game-changer for me.
For those using Roam Research, you can export your entire graph to a zip of Markdown files.
@mike Soylu -- seeing you just updated the status to "Planned" -- do you have any sense as to how long this might take to implement?
I had a little try at Obsdidian before finding Mem, so would be great to import those notes.
I have stacks of notes in OneNote (previously in Evernote) - I'm not sure if I'd want to import them, also most of them are taken with Apple pencil, not text.
Since Obsidian uses Markdown files, you can set up a Zapier between a Dropbox folder and Mem and then import the Markdown files into the Dropbox folder and they will be added to Mem. I did this with exported Notion pages.
