Taking notes is a pain, and we all know that. One of the biggest problems with taking notes is that your team might store them all in different places. Before you know it, you have no idea where anything is or what has been done. Microsoft’s OneNote on OneDrive changes that, providing a collaborative cloud-based solution for note taking.
What is OneDrive?
Microsoft OneDrive is Microsoft’s cloud-based application solution which groups together several web-based versions of popular Microsoft software, like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. OneDrive is free to use, and you gain 15 GB of storage for whatever your heart desires. Need to make a presentation for your big business pitch? You get access to a complete (well, mostly) Microsoft PowerPoint application which is just as good as the real deal. OneDrive also allows for sharing with others, making collaboration easier than ever.
OneNote in particular is extremely useful for collaborative projects which require extensive note taking. It acts as a notebook with nearly infinite pages. You can add sections for easy management, and add pages to the sections for all of your notes. You are then able to label these pages to dictate what their contents are. All changes made to the OneNote documents are saved immediately, making backup simple and easy.
OneNote comes with most of the convenient text-editing features of Microsoft Word, making it a fairly dynamic tool for recording notes in whatever manner you see fit. You can bold and italicize text, make headings, and check your spelling. You can also paste images and links into the notes, allowing you to put all of your resources in one convenient location. You can even build out tables for data, if you so desire.
Share Your Notes
Perhaps the best part of OneNote online (and OneDrive in general) is the ability to share your work with others. Contributors will be able to view and edit your notes, so long as they have the link to the document. This helps your team take notes while they are out in the field or working from home, making OneNote a dynamic and helpful tool for any business owner. Microsoft OneNote can be used with your mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones, so long as they can connect to the Internet. You’ll never be limited by your location ever again.
No matter how you slice it, OneNote makes taking and sharing notes with your team much easier.
