OneNote collects your notes and lets you find them later. It keeps anything you want to put into it – scraps of information, web links, photos, videos, files, whatever. You can keep things organized or create a freeform jumble and search for things later (everything is immediately searchable). You can share notebooks easily. The more you use it, the more useful it becomes.
You can download a free trial! Use it for a month. Some of you will find that you’re opening it in the morning along with Outlook and leaving it open all day.
Don’t take my word for it. Here’s a collection of links collected by a member of the OneNote team from blog entries and media coverage of OneNote in the last month. The people who use it tend to become evangelists. The world is full of cruddy software but OneNote is one of the programs that just works!
- OneNote is awesome – sharing documents with yourself and others
- Seeing the light about OneNote – Been in Paris at a Management Excellence course. All of our group work was on OneNote. Ick! I really HATE OneNote. I don’t use a tablet PC so I just didn’t “get” it about OneNote- how good it was… But, in the spirit of the event, I started using the pre-populated workbook for the course. Eureka! I’m a convert. Even the guide to OneNote now makes sense.
- So I’ve been talking to educators in my little frozen corner of the world and they’ve been telling me about educational hotness that they are using. MS Onenote came up.
- I’ve noticed that people seem to either be fanatics about using OneNote, or they’ve never tried it.
- I know a few people who’d kill for onenote for os x
- Man, what a cool program this is. I discovered it when a customer of mine asked me about it. I did some research and realized that it was a program I�ve been wanting for a long time.
- Using OneNote is such a pleasure; I tell people about it all the time. It is so versatile and can contain anything I need in one spot. Thanks for a great product. If you ever want an extra tester, please let me know.
- I love OneNote and I store all kinds of things in it…I decided to move all my OneNote notebooks to a 4 gig USB drive that’s attached to my keys… all the notebooks will sync between each PC and the USB drive.
- I downloaded <OneNote> to help my husband figure it out when he got it with MS office home edition for his new laptop. After about 15 minutes, I realized it was going to change my work habits profoundly.
- I added OneNote 2007 recently and it’s really been improved — lots of new features and integration with the other Office 2007 apps and IE to easily move information over to OneNote. OneNote’s new indexing and search within images is utterly fantastic.
- WELL I AM IMPRESSED – MICROSOFT ONENOTE: Well I have been working in Microsoft’s OneNote quite a bit today — I am definitely and quickly becoming a convert. I am very impressed with it so far, OneNote is very sophisticated and usable!
