Microsoft OneNote is an electronic note-taking and storage application available as desktop program, web app, and mobile phone application. With more flexibility than traditional note-taking apps or word processors, OneNote gives users a productive digital note-taking and storage solution.
OneNote uses notebooks, sections and pages to organize notes in an attractive layout and consistent manner. Each page can have its own template that gives each note page its own identity and consistency.
Organize your thoughts in an infinite canvas
Microsoft OneNote may be just the solution you’ve been searching for to document all your ideas and thoughts in an organized and accessible fashion. With notebooks, sections, pages and tags you can organize all of your notes for easier searching when later retrieving information from OneNote.
OneNote differs from traditional word processors in that it caters specifically for informal data you may use at work or school, similar to tabbed ring binder folders with edits that you can make freely and share across applications.
Not only can you edit text with this app, but you can also take handwritten notes using either stylus or finger, then convert them to typed text later. Clip from the web and save articles, pictures, screenshots and more directly into notebooks – creating highlighters to express ideas using shapes and colors on notes is even possible!
OneNote provides the option for password protection of notebook sections or all pages within them, preventing anyone else from opening your notebook without knowing your password. In addition, OneNote comes equipped with several page templates like planners and to-do lists which make creating new pages easy and uniformly appealing.
OneNote is an ideal team solution because it enables users to share notebooks among themselves. This feature can be particularly beneficial to project teams as it enables teammates to work on a single file from anywhere and access it anytime. Furthermore, OneNote can store meeting minutes that help streamline teamwork.
Microsoft OneNote stands out amongst all other notetaking methods with its infinite canvas and digital alternative to tabbed ring binder folder. Additionally, this Microsoft Office suite application makes note-taking and organization easier than ever, as well as integrating with apps and platforms like Atlassian Confluence.
Share your notebooks with others
OneNote is your digital notepad to capture those fleeting ideas, simplify planning tasks and keep track of errands with. OneNote synchronizes across devices so you can take notes at any time or place.
OneNote for Windows 10 features a simplified version of Microsoft Office Ribbon along the top of your screen, divided into different tabs to facilitate different functions. For instance, OneNote’s Home tab offers access to text formatting features; images and other elements can also be inserted as well as changes made to note’s design.
If you would like to share a notebook with another person, simply click on the ‘Share’ button in the upper right corner. A popup window will then appear that allows you to select names or email addresses of people to invite, as well as whether to allow them access either for editing or viewing of your notebook.
Create a link to your notebook so that it can be pasted directly into an email or chat conversation, allowing anyone who knows the link access the notebook and view its contents. If you wish to allow editing as well, click ‘Copy Link’ under ‘Share’ window then either ‘View Only’ or ‘View and Edit’ respectively.
If you want to stop sharing a notebook, just click the ‘Stop Sharing’ button in the upper left corner of OneNote app window and then choose which person’s sharing to stop before tapping ‘Remove’.
If you are using OneNote on an iPhone or iPad, to open a notebook tap the Notebooks icon in the lower left of the app’s home page. From here you can navigate directly to sections or pages within that notebook or select ‘New Notebook’ option to quickly create one right then and there. Alternatively, click ‘Notebooks’ tab at bottom for a complete listing of notebooks on your device.
Take notes on any device
OneNote is part of Microsoft Office suite and designed to maximize notetaking efficiency with an adaptable notebook accessible across platforms. Its hierarchical organization system and tagging options help keep notes organized so they’re easy to locate at any time.
This app makes it easy to capture anything on your screen, from full webpages and specific regions to text with formatting options and links. Plus, take snapshots or record audio clips all from one convenient place! Handwritten notes or drawings can even be added directly into notes.
Create or select from one of the existing notebooks on the left-hand menu to begin creating a notebook, or organize existing notebooks more efficiently by creating sections with an unlimited number of pages per section – making it easier to track large amounts of information over an extended period.
OneNote, both desktop and mobile versions, remembers where you were last when opening either a notebook or page, displaying any edits you may have made there as well as their latest version for easy retrieval of older content. Reverting back to an earlier version is as easy as right-clicking the section or page and selecting Restore Previous Version; though keeping track of history requires OneDrive storage space.
As soon as you select text in OneNote, a small window appears on the right of your cursor with a toolbar that enables you to increase or decrease font sizes as well as apply various formats and styling features. Furthermore, an onscreen keyboard provides access to typing in different languages as well as drawing shapes with your finger or inserting links to documents.
OneNote’s default notebook is created for you when you launch it for the first time. You can create additional notebooks as needed or click Notebooks in the left-hand navigation to view them all together as scrollable lists with tags making it easier for you to locate what you’re searching for.
Access your notes anywhere
OneNote is designed for team collaboration and note sharing across platforms – Windows, Mac OSX, iOS and Android devices are supported. This makes it simple for hybrid workers who can access notes on their computers at work while synching them to their phones before leaving office before continuing work on their tablet when they return home.
OneNote allows users to create and save notebooks in various locations, although by default all notes are stored in one central place on your computer where OneNote is installed. Additionally, you can organize notebooks by creating folders – perfect for keeping things tidy! It’s compatible with various third-party plugins to increase functionality such as Zapier and Salesforce for additional flexibility.
Microsoft OneNote stands out with its intuitive user interface. Users can navigate it via mouse or touchscreen and can drag text groups around to move them around the page – an especially helpful feature when taking notes from books, articles or websites. Furthermore, OneNote enables users to highlight and circle text groups so they stand out on the page.
OneNote provides not only text formatting options, but also pictures and audio/video recordings for their notebooks or sections. Furthermore, OneNote can recognize spoken words for searchability later and offers password protection options to secure notebooks or sections.
OneNote stands out from its competition due to its unique capability of integration with other applications and services, like Microsoft Outlook. Furthermore, OneNote supports plugins which expand its functionality, such as OneNote Web Clipper – a browser extension which enables users to quickly clip web content for saving.
OneNote is an ideal tool to organize and take notes in any environment – be it at work or home! Thanks to its powerful organizational features and user-friendly design, OneNote has quickly become the go-to app for many business professionals.
