Get to know OneNote 2007

A person being swamped by notes

Getting a handle on information in your job, and at home, can be overwhelming. There are so many sources of information in the information age. You may have Internet research, meeting notes, to-do lists, files, sticky notes, contact information, even the humble shopping list. OneNote is designed to help you keep track of all of this. It's great for doing research, taking notes, organizing lists, and so much more, and keeping it all in one place.

You may be wondering why you need to bother with another program when you already take perfectly adequate notes in Word, Outlook, even Notepad — or on paper. But imagine the convenience of having all your notes in front of you, together in one place, with no need to remember file names or locations — and of being able to create a task in Outlook directly from your notes. And there's lots more too.

In this lesson, you'll be introduced to the various ways of getting information into OneNote, how you can arrange that information to your satisfaction, and how you can use your notes in other Office programs.
