With the design of a digital notebook, Microsoft OneNote is a place to create, collect, store, and search for notes. This is a great program for organizing pieces of information that may not fit easily into the structure of one of the other Office programs. And when you store laptops on your network or in the cloud, you can access data from multiple devices and even share it with others.
What can OneNote insert?
With OneNote, you can organize notes by sections and pages into notebooks. These notes may include:
Websites and other hyperlinks
Images, drawings, and media
Data from other office programs
OneNote Tips: Content you can easily insert
OneNote is a very flexible application that can contain a wide range of content. It is not limited by page size or a linear structure. The Insert Ribbon tab gives you some ideas about the type of items you can easily insert into OneNote. Let’s look at these oneNote tips and more.
Record audio or video: You don’t need to use your smartphone to record meeting notes or video events. Simply capture a video or audio recording directly within OneNote. It’s also easy to crop the recording and play the audio or video.
Printing files: Do you want to capture an impression without scanning a file or creating a PDF? From any Office application, simply choose Send to OneNote as the print option. From this option, you can specify the name of the notebook, the section, and the page where you want to capture the printout. You can also insert a printout directly from OneNote.
Attachment: When printing is not required, add an attachment instead. The file can be opened directly from OneNote, even if the attachment is not linked to the source file that may have been updated.
Hyperlinks: OneNote notebooks can also store links to webpages, email addresses, or network files.
Tables and spreadsheets: When notes require a more structured appearance or even calculations, add a table or worksheet to a page in your notebook. OneNote also supports equations and symbols for more detailed input.
Date and time stamps: When you create notes, adding a date and/or time stamp allows you to document comments and additions, especially when sharing notebooks with others.
Tags, tasks, and task items: Arrange notes as actions by tagging individual notes or items. A tag marks an element with a tag, such as Do Item, Important, or Question. These options are available on the Start Ribbon tab, or use keyboard shortcuts, such as [Ctrl], to mark a note. Labels can be searched in all notebooks so that they can be easily found. To track, check a label to run when you’re done or send it to Outlook to create an Outlook task.
Custom pages: Even if you don’t need a hard page structure in OneNote, it might be easier to work with some pages by changing the look of the page. On the View Ribbon tab, change the color of the page, choose from a variety of lined lines, or change the size and layout of the page view.
Drawings: With a touchscreen or portable device and a stylus, you can also create freehand shapes and drawings with a wide range of colors and widths. These options are available on the Draw Ribbon tab. If you don’t have a touchscreen or stylus, OneNote also supports mouse drawing. At least if you’re a better artist than I am!
From Ink to Text or Ink to Math: Like drawing tools, you can create freehand text in your notes. If the handwriting is readable, choose Ink to Text to convert handwriting to text.
