How to Use OneNote Effectively

I’ve been a fan of OneNote since I was a Tablet PC MVP, which was quite a long time ago.

However, I never feel like I’m getting the maximum benefit from the tool.

Leila Gharani share her top OneNote productivity tips.

Most of us take notes in some way or another – on a piece of paper, in a notebook, or with some app. But are your notes always readily available when you need them? And more importantly, can you easily find a specific note you’re looking for?

I tried a lot of note-taking systems in the past and I can’t tell you how many great ideas were lost over the years because I just couldn’t find the piece of paper anymore, I scribbled some notes on. It wasn’t until I found a way to use Microsoft OneNote effectively that it changed for the better. Many people don’t know that OneNote is much more than just a digital notebook.

In this OneNote tutorial (in 2020), I explore how you can take full advantage of OneNote, and share my 5 personal OneNote tips and tricks on how you can become more organized.
