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.

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

This app is super easy to use.
It launches very quickly as well as operates quickly.
I especially love the fact I don't need to save my work! It;s saved automatically.

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.
Being able to catalog and share notes among my team
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.
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.
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.
Elian from Century Home Health, Inc.
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.
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.
Good program to manage a collaborative to do list and set goals. Very clean and organized program.
