My experience with Microsoft OneNote

OneNote

I have had One Note as part of the Office Suite for a few years now, but I have never really got the chance to use it until recently. This piece of software is just amazing in what it can do!

Microsoft describes it as a note-taking management software, but that is truly a huge underestimation.

With One Note you can create virtual notebooks, with different folders and  subjects for each notebook and multiple pages per subject as well as subpages.

In each page you can write text or use your tablet to input handwritten text. However the interesting features are that you can also include links to any kind of documents, synchronize it with meetings or tasks in outlook, take snapshots of any part of the screen, include audio or video notes, create prioritized lists, share notes with others in meetings (real time) and many other small but helpful features.

If you are familiar with Word and Outlook you won’t have any difficulty to use it. It is pretty straight forward and it won’t take you more than a few minutes to realize its potential.

It is difficult to describe it properly. You just need to try it.

The reason that I haven’t tried it so far was the poor description that Microsoft has given for it! It is a shame since it is a brilliant tool for students, managers, writers and pretty much everyone that takes notes. I strongly suggest it.
