What is "Email to GoodNotes" in GoodNotes 5?
"Email to GoodNotes" enables you to easily import PDFs to your GoodNotes library by emailing them to your @goodnotes.email address. We're currently testing out this feature while slowly rolling this out to all of you. You will receive an in-app notification when you have been randomly selected to test out this feature and participation is optional.
Requirements to enable this feature
- GoodNotes version 5.4.5 or higher.
- An iCloud account logged into the iOS device.
- You have been randomly selected to test out this feature.
How to receive your @goodnotes.email
1. Tap Settings from GoodNotes menu.
2. Select "Email to GoodNotes".
Once activated, you will receive your @goodnotes.email address like highlighted below.
Features of your goodnotes.email address
The address is unique and tied to your iCloud account. You would be the only person who would receive imports.
Limitations of Email to GoodNotes
We currently only support PDFs. If the email contains both PDFs and other unsupported formats, the PDFs will be imported but the sender will receive an email listing the unsupported files. Please note that we also don’t follow direct links to PDFs within the email. Images may be considered part of the email signature, so if the email contains PDFs and images, there will be no error email sent back to the sender and only the PDFs are imported.
Checking new imports from your @goodnotes.email
Currently, we check for new imports when:
- GoodNotes 5 is in the foreground (i.e. visible on the screen).
- the "Email to GoodNotes" Setting is brought up.
Normally, it takes a minute or two for our servers to prepare the attachment for downloading to your GoodNotes.
How to disable your @goodnotes.email
If you feel spammed or don't want to use this feature anymore, you can easily disable it. Please note that your email address will be disabled immediately and can't be reused.
