Microsoft OneNotefor Windows
Don't forget what is important
We are always in a hurry, and we have various plans. It is essential not to forget anything and stick to your plans at the current pace of life. You need a program to make notes and store all the necessary information. Microsoft OneNote is an excellent example of such a program, and we will tell you about its primary features.
A single repository of information
The basic principle of working with information used by Microsoft OneNote for Windows is that the data should be stored in one place. When the information you need is scattered (some on post-its, some in paper notebooks, some in text files on your PC, and some in notes on your smartphone), it is hard to find it at the right moment. OneNote is considered to be one notebook for all data.
This versatility is achieved due to the use of cloud technology. OneNote notes are located in OneDrive and automatically sync with the server. That's why you cannot lose the information you store in OneNote along with your gadget. Just log in to OneNote using your account on any computer, and you will access all your notes.
Information in any format
Microsoft OneNote for Windows is an electronic notebook. It stores text, photos, pictures, links, formulas, shapes, files, audio recordings, tags, and embedded objects, like YouTube videos.
Cloud technology allows sharing notes and working on their content simultaneously from different locations. Today, this is already a standard condition of group efficiency. Microsoft has always kept up with the times, so their OneNote product works with cloud technology.
