Getting Organized in 2013 with Microsoft OneNote

New Year's Resolutions

Most of us make New Year's resolutions and typically they include something about starting the new year out by getting organized. That thought usually includes going paperless because as we start the process of getting organized, we find the paper notes we have taken throughout the previous year(s) and are overwhelmed. Microsoft has a product available called OneNote and if you have ever used a spiral notebook, you can use this.

With Microsoft OneNote you can have multiple notebooks, dividers within the notebooks and pages within the dividers - sound familiar? Within your notebook(s) you can gather and organize text, digital handwriting, pictures, audio and video recordings - just to name a few. How many times have you misplaced that scrap of paper you made a note on, or searched for that website you can't remember the name of that had something really interesting on it? I know, I sound like a commercial, but honestly I'm not getting paid for this! I just cannot believe how much more organized I am since I started using this software.

Let me give you some examples. When you are on the Internet and come across something interesting that you want to refer back to, you can snip the item into your notebook for easy retrieval at a later time. Maybe you are pulling together some research for business, or accumulating ideas for a vacation. Have you ever been in a meeting or class, tried to take notes but fallen behind? With OneNote you can record the meeting and it keeps up with the notes you are typing in sync with the recording. This allows you to go back and fill in where needed. There are also templates you can apply to your notebook pages. Legal practice notebook, Student notebook, Wedding Planner notebook - just to name a few! You can watch a DEMO and try OneNote 60 days for free at this Microsoft website: Try Microsoft Office 2010.

Get organized in 2013! It couldn't be easier. If you need help, please contact us. We have workshops in our training center regularly, or we will provide one-on-one training.
