Every day and throughout the day you need access to information. Using OneNote, you have the power to access project and client information anytime, anywhere – and from any of your devices. But....are you taking advantage of this power? Does information you need to put your hands on get lost in the shuffle because you lack the organized systems and structure to be able to retrieve this information when you need it? Do you keep multiple paper pads with information from various meetings – only to realize you grabbed the wrong pad of paper? Maybe you've lost important information because it was kept on paper instead of digital? After all, your sticky notes and paper notebooks full of information aren't backed up and you certainly can't key-word search them in a couple of seconds to find exactly those notes you took. Do you put asterisks next to things you need to "do" or "remember" – yet forget to look back at your notes? It doesn't have to be this difficult. By creating custom tags for things you need to do or remember, you can instantly move action items to your Outlook Task list or drill down into the data you tagged for a specific project or client. Here a short list of what you will learn in this book: Notebook ideas How to get started with OneNote Taking, moving, resizing and merging Notes How to create tables of text Changing colors of sections and notebooks Moving sections and pages Inserting files, pictures, images, links, time and date stamps E-mailing notes Tagging, creating and modifying tags, and finding tags Linking pages from one section or notebook to another Creating and using templates Creating check-lists Using the drawing tools Inserting audio and video recordings Password protecting sections of data Recovering deleted sections Printing Spell Checking and more
What Makes Me Qualified to Write This Book? I am not just another "author" writing a book about Microsoft OneNote. Many technical writers are more than capable of doing this. Instead, I am a Productivity Consultant with an education in Management Information Systems and Technical Writing. I have taught Microsoft OneNote classes for several years to employees of corporations, at conferences and to small business owners. Many of my clients have enlisted me prior to their training to consult with them on the best structures and naming conventions to use for the notebooks their teams will share and collaborate on. During training, this provides participants with the actual notebooks already customized for their use, which rapidly increases the learning objectives and outcome. Having also taught Microsoft Outlook classes for community colleges, I became quickly frustrated with the materials I was provided to teach with. While the materials showed the participants "how" to use the software, it did not teach them "why" they would want to use the software a specific way. This is when I began writing my own books that serve as our teaching guides. I have continued this with the OneNote classes I teach, writing all my own material, sometimes customized for organizations and other times, this book serves as their reference material. In addition to my teaching experience and much more importantly, I have over two decades of consulting experience working with businesses to streamline their business processes with the use of technology. I understand the challenges individuals and organizations face daily with the use of Microsoft OneNote and how to organize and retrieve information quickly when needed.
