What is Microsoft OneNote

Microsoft OneNote is an electronic Note-taking system. It has been around for many years actually, but has really come into its own in recent years for a number of reasons:

  • Increasingly mobile workforce
  • Shift from Desktops to Laptops
  • The drive to go paperless
  • Microsoft Office 365 Software roll outs

Additionally, many organisations are now using Microsoft Surface Pro’s or Windows Hybrid Tablets rather than Ipads in order to take advantage of some really cool productivity features available within Microsoft Office 365.

OneNote is part of the usual Microsoft Office Suite, though many people don’t even realise they have it installed. The easiest way to describe OneNote is to compare it to a Paper Notebook with coloured sections or Dividers as in the graphic below.

Also, Microsoft OneNote can be synced across all your devices. You can download the App for Android, IOS and naturally Windows devices too. This means you always have your notes with you wherever you go.

Client Feedback

Hi Geoff, I’m loving OneNote and the Microsoft OneNote training really, really helped. I had used it a bit prior but totally incorrectly! I just had a load of sections. Now I have 3 Notebooks – internal project, external and admin. Within those are the project sections with each new meeting or event, a new page. It’s colour coded and totally set-up right.  Thanks for the training – One Note is amazing.  Nicola – Local Government – August 2018
