OneNote Software


 

Microsoft OneNote is a digital note taking app that can be accessed via Android, Chrome, Windows, iOS and Mac devices. The solution is well-suited for individuals attending numerous meetings per week and working on multiple collaborative projects.

OneNote offers deep search functionality for all notes stored in its database. Users can also store and organize audio recordings that are in a searchable format and can be integrated with other Microsoft Office products.

OneNote allows users to take handwritten notes with the help of a stylus or fingertip and can also convert these notes to digital text. Important ideas or points can be highlighted by using various shapes and colors.

The solution has the ability to embed other Microsoft Office files into a note. They can then be easily edited by OneNote users. OneNote offers cloud-based storage and allows users to easily toggle between separate but synced up enterprise and personal accounts.

Great for what it is intended for I suppose, but it seems like it could definitely use some upgraded software ability.

Pros

Comes with office 365 account, can share with your team, tabs and categories make it easy to organize

Cons

Doesn't handle upgraded Crm tasks, no help with reminders or pipelines for leads, sometimes it takes a little while to load your notes

I have been using OneNote for 4 years now. I absolutely love this software! It is very handy to take my iPad into meetings and make notes in the OneNote app and know that they will be waiting for me on my computer thanks to the cloud note sharing. The desktop, iPad, and iPhone apps work very well together. I have used this and other note taking software and this is by far my favorite.

Pros

Easy to use and great cloud sharing capabilities.

Cons

So far i have not found any downside to using OneNote.

I use OneNote almost every day at work, and it's our master repository for tracking processes or issues we faced. It's great when it works, but it can be very limited in some capacities.

Pros

Multi-user collaboration, along w/ the ability to organize through tabs and sub-tabs.

Cons

It's very inflexible when I want to drop multiple text boxes and images near each other. I need more sensitivity to move around text boxes. Also, I often get syncing issues across devices, and it has to create tab copies to save my data.

One Note has definitely taken our team collaboration up a notch. Better for sharing reports and analytics, taking notes and making them available across the team.

Wish there was some built in calendar functionality as well as an option to share large files, photos, videos etc. Have also found it difficult to collaborate outside my org. But would like the option to add third parties to projects for a more seamless team experience.

For the price, it has some decent options and features.

Pros

Being able to catalog and share notes among my team

Cons

No real file sharing, some things don't dump in very smoothly.

Use it for a small publishing company. OneNote allows me to share my production schedule with the nessesary parties as i move a book this it's steps. It is very easy to manage, i can also run more than one book/projuect at a time and share with different copy editors, developmental editors, layout and design, marketing team.

Likes Least

if you are a first time user of OneNote don't expect the set up to be quick and easy The First Time. As you learn the system and the steps of setting a project up it will become easier just as it does with other programs. That was my biggest complaint, and an easy fix with some practice runs and projects.

Recommendations

Very good simple project managment system that is not expensive for your office if you are running PC and already have Office installed. Give it a try for sure as it is a great tool if you are budget concious as well.

We use this in office to manage collaborative to do lists. We have a separate one for each department. It's very easy for us to manage and get everything done. Very easy to comment and manage/set goals. Keeps us organized for all around office tasks.

Likes Least

It was a little difficult learning how to use the program and sometimes it's a little glitchy when syncing accounts/data. Some employees have reported issues logging in and connecting.

Recommendations

Good program to manage a collaborative to do list and set goals. Very clean and organized program.

Pros

The ability to separate subjects into separate notebook files. And that you can input data from your camera, voice dictation, typing and HANDWRITING!!!. When you enter a picture that contains text you can enable Onenote to make text searchable. I can write notes on top of our schematics to show changes to my colleges. Onedrive allows me to access my data from my phone and desktop without having to take an extra syncing step.

I have digitized our manuals and share them via web over our intranet. That is very handy.

Cons

This product is not configured well right out of the box. You will have to google tutorials on how this should be setup to get the most out of it. Good news is that this is a one time setup.

I use this on my Surface Pro 4 and it is wonderful. I can switch between the keyboard and the Surface Pen, I can convert handwritten notes into text, formulas into a LaTex-like font, import files and edit them with the pen, import Excel spreadsheets...

Pros

Easy to use, a lot of features, shortcuts, data imports, Tab organization, ability to record while you take notes

Cons

Bad recording quality

It's been some time since I started out on One Drive. My main ambition behind it was the reason that my iPhone's 16 of limited space was quickly draining out and I knew that I would need a backup drive up in the cloud. I have always been interested with Microsoft so I gave One Drive the first chance. Now I just back up my data in the cloud and I no longer have to worry about keeping those treasuring photographs safe in my mobile, still need to carry the songs though. Their service is amazing. The cloud storage did not give me any trouble at any time, it is also safe to use as the data is encrypted and is unlikely to be theft from. The 7 GB initial storage was enough initially but as I moved forward, I bought the additional 50 GB for $25 which sort of is a good enough deal.

Pros

It is very easy to set up cloud storage and quite functional too.

Cons

So far, I haven't encountered any problem which would bug me.

Onenote combined with other office products such as onedrive and 0365 groups can be useful for team note taking. It gets annoying when you want to try to draw pictures in the notes. some images can be added but to get to boxes and lines you need to open visio which while integrated is akward

Pros

Great for dumping notes as you go and finding and sharing

Cons

Limited options for organizing the details within a note

Microsoft OneNote and Evernote are two top-notch options for our all digital notebooks needs. If we compare OneNote with Evernote, the winner could be Evernote but OneNote's integration with Microsoft Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint and Word is a great feature for business.

OneNote 2013 for Windows has a cool feature you won't find in Evernote that it lets you add new video recordings to notes.

Pros

OneNote gives you 15GB of free storage that's available at all times via Microsoft's OneDrive.
