Research tells us that executives waste up to 20% of the workday simply looking for files. Never mind the aggravation after the information is found! It's time for a fresh collaborative approach to personal and business data organization, management, and retrieval. Enter Microsoft OneNote, a powerful information organizer that makes it possible to find what you need when you need it.


More than just another file manager, OneNote gathers documents, drawings, articles, screen clippings, audio and video commentaries, etc., into one or more digital notebooks. It’s especially good for collaboration, providing easy access to shared data and keeping track of multiple author changes. Best of all, you don’t have to change your current digital file hierarchy or structure. Simply insert the link into the OneNote page.

Whether you work alone or with a team, OneNote keeps essential data at your fingertips. You will end up with smarter work practices and more time to focus on what really matters, on and off the job.

  • You’ll learn how to record audio/video media for later playback, verifying your notes by linking them (as they’re typed or written) to the exact time they were discussed in the recording.
  • You’ll use OneNote’s powerful indexed search feature to find anything you previously inserted in your notebooks—even images, pdfs, and handwriting. Nothing gets lost again.
  • You’ll understand the process of customizing the OneNote interface in a manner that makes sense to you personally.
  • You’ll know how to link notes to external files such as documents, workbooks, presentation slides, Outlook appointments and tasks, even web pages.
  • You’ll be able to directly capture information from Word or PowerPoint without hassle.
  • You know how to share documents with team members using OneNote as the collaborative interface.
  • You’ll be able copy and paste text directly from images and pdfs into documents for editing.
