A great tool for storing information

You need to constantly plan something and follow your plans to succeed in any area of life. The more ambitious these plans are, the more information you need to keep in your head. This is a difficult thing to do, so Microsoft OneNote is here to help. We will tell you what this program is and what features it has.

What is this program?

Microsoft OneNote is an application for storing information in a single place and many formats. It has many useful features for saving and processing information, such as search, easy-to-use formulas, the ability to integrate information from other sources, etc. The program is multiplatform, so there is a version for Mac devices.

Information Accessibility

Microsoft OneNote for Mac has an easy-to-use search engine allowing you to find the necessary information instantly in many notes. OneNote searches for words in keyboard text and text in photos. Text in all images is recognized automatically. You can group and structure your notes however you like for easy reference.

Multifunctionality

Microsoft OneNote has various useful features. Unlike in other similar programs, you can write and place images and shapes anywhere on the page in OneNote. Changing the color of text, conditions, and the page is possible. OneNote also has a built-in calculator. The advantage of a regular calculator is that calculation history is saved on the page. You can create spoilers on pages, i.e., hide part of the content below the line. This can be useful when there is a lot of information on the page.

Information retention features

Microsoft OneNote for Mac has many options for storing information. Among them are the following:

  • You can write, draw, and move files in the application;

  • Find photos on the Internet and put them into OneNote without leaving the program;

  • Use the camera to add pictures;

  • Use the microphone to add audio;

  • Use Email to OneNote to put emails and attachments into OneNote;

  • Use Send to OneNote to send the contents of any document from any application into OneNote using the Print menu;

  • Use the Web Clipper to put web pages in your browser into OneNote;

  • Use the OneNote icon on your smartphone to create notes without launching the app, even on a locked screen;

  • Use the Office Lens to take photos of documents and put them into OneNote with cropped margins and aligned perspective;

  • Use the Zapier to create notes automatically from different apps using preset algorithms.

The program has earned its popularity due to these valuable features.
