You can! You'll need to connect an Evernote Business account and use an Evernote Business Trigger or Action to access those Notes.
If you have an Evernote Business account, you must use the Evernote Business Zapier app. If you connect your Evernote Business account to a step that uses the Evernote app, you will be able to connect your account, but your Zaps will run into errors.
It's not currently possible to trigger a Zap from a shared notebook, sorry about that!
Commonly, you'll want to create a contact, calendar event or something from a note, but such a pattern isn't very intuitive because Evernote doesn't have fields that map cleanly: they only have title and content and the other record might have first name, last name and email.
One workaround is to place the name or email into the Note title, and some other field in the content. This way you can cleanly map the fields. At this time Zapier doesn't have the ability to intelligently "extract" values from a large body of text. You could also use something like named variables to manually mark data to be extracted.
Because Evernote uses a unique type of HTML called ENML, we're not always able to format it exactly as you might expect. Instead, we do our best to strip down the content into plain text, and then place that plain text into the Note. This is a common issue with services like RSS, Gmail, IMAP or other email triggers which often have very unique HTML formatting. If you really want to add formatting to your note, double-check that it abides by ENML guidelines.
We will do our best to wait until you are done editing a note in Evernote before we trigger off of it. We do this by waiting until the last time updated stops changing, so you might see a slight delay on triggering as we need to see a note twice with no updates before we trigger it.
Right now, we can only trigger on reminders if they are assigned due dates when they are created.
In order to ensure that we only trigger on new items that have complete information, your zap will make sure that a new item shows up with the same info in consecutive checks for new data. This can result in zaps triggering on new items more slowly. This is what we're referring to under Edits After Creation above.
You can make an in-app link (classic link) by typing the following and inserting the following fields:
Please note that the note GUID is listed at the end of the link twice, sequentially.
Unfortunately, the business card scanner from Evernote doesn't work super well with Zapier. The issue is that all that information about the person's email/name etc is actually all in the body of a note, but with Evernote's markup language being used to make it appear pretty in the note. In order for you to be able to grab that data and move it to the action, we'd need discrete fields for each piece of information (name, email, etc), which Evernote doesn't provide.
You could try a service like Full Contact instead, which would work well with Zapier.
This error can indicate a variety of problems in your Evernote Zap. The most common causes of this error are:
