notes note-taking

At last, someone has put an end to endless sticky notes and lost slips of paper! Microsoft's Office OneNote allows you to gather all your information in text, pictures, audio and video recordings and other forms of jotting into one digital notebook on your computer.

Gone are the frustrating searches the that email you got last week that had the information you needed for your presentation or the ingredients for your aunt's meat loaf - all you have to do is copy and paste it into OneNote. Should you forget where in the notebook you put it, a simple search much like the one you use in Word is all you'll need to find what you're looking for. You can even search for text contained in pictures or the spoken words in recordings both audio and video. What could be easier?

OneNote will keep everything you need in one place whether it's in the form of images, files from other programs, documents or freeform notes. You can organize as you wish, whatever way is easiest for you. And don't worry about losing an original piece of writing or recording, as OneNote automatically backs itself up.

OneNote is invaluable in the workplace; you can take notes from meetings and creative sessions with OneNote and have it all organized and accessible in a matter of seconds. You can even your Windows Mobile devices to gather notes, recordings, pictures and other information and easily transfer it to your notebook. If you choose to share the notebook with family or co-workers it can certainly benefit the home or the workplace; you can share as much or as little of your notebook as you choose.

OneNote even has tables and drawing tools to let you work on business charts, graphs, creative ideas and spur of the moment ideas. You'll wonder what you ever did without Office OneNote!
