Gather all of your information in Office OneNote 2007. View larger.
With so much information coming your way--and in so many different forms--you need one place to keep it all and a tool that's flexible enough to capture it. Otherwise, information that could have been used to help make better decisions or make you more efficient is lost or difficult to find. Unlike paper-based systems, word processing programs, e-mail systems, or other productivity programs, OneNote 2007 delivers the flexibility to gather and organize text, pictures, digital handwriting, audio and video recordings, and more--all in one digital notebook on your computer. This software can help you become more productive by keeping the information you need at your fingertips and reducing time spent searching for information across e-mail messages, paper notebooks, file folders, and printouts.
Save Time By Consolidating Information
Taking notes on paper and transcribing them later can be time-consuming and difficult, and you run the risk of losing important pages. In addition, it's difficult to share data kept in a conventional paper notebook, and they're only good for capturing one kind of information: handwritten notes. When it's time to gather information from other sources and in different ways, other difficulties can arise. For instance, because most people don't have a way of digitally capturing unstructured information, they often print out Web research, and store information in file folders or on desks, which is difficult to find later and inaccessible when you're away. And sharing information with others can be challenging--even when using e-mail, it can be hard to hard to figure out what the plan is without reading through long e-mail threads that may or may not contain the information you need. OneNote 2007, however, gives you a solution with a flexible software program that enables you to gather virtually any type of information in one place. With your information readily available, you can be more prepared and informed.
Quickly Find What You Need
With OneNote 2007, finding information is easy and fast because it eliminates the guesswork of figuring out where you stored critical information. No more clicking through file folders and sorting through pages of paper notebooks to find the information you're looking for. Powerful search features give you the ability to locate information quickly, while allowing you to search across new types of content, like text in scanned documents or images, and spoken words in audio and video recordings. With easier access to the facts, you and your teammates can make better decisions.

OneNote 2007 helps you consolidate various types of information--including freeform notes, images, documents, files from other Microsoft Office system programs, and rich media--and organize it in the way that works best for you. And because it keeps everything in one place, you don't have to worry about frequently saving or creating backups of your information--OneNote 2007 does this for you.
Ideal For Businesses
If you're attending an important meeting and don't want to rely on your memory, simply take meeting notes in OneNote 2007 to create a living repository of group decisions and brainstorming sessions that adds continuity and context to subsequent meetings. You can also catch all the details of customer calls and meetings by synchronizing typed or handwritten notes with Office OneNote 2007 audio and video recordings. If you're working outside of the office, gather information on your Microsoft Windows Mobile powered devices (including notes, audio recordings, and pictures) and transfer it to OneNote 2007.
And when it's time to share data with your colleagues, take advantage of OneNote 2007's export application programming interface to easily transfer information gathered in OneNote 2007 to your company's business systems, and in so doing reduce errors and wasted time spent rekeying the same information in different systems. Need to copy, paste, or print information from and into other 2007 Microsoft Office system programs? It's no problem with OneNote; this software lets you access and exchange information in Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint. You can even use OneNote 2007's drawing tools and tables to annotate and easily organize and manage information.

OneNote 2007 lets you search and find keywords quickly within text, in images, and in audio recordings made within the application. You can also view hyperlinked search results in a summary task pane; a single click takes you to relevant results. For added convenience, view all open notebooks at once, use drag-and-drop functionality to easily arrange and rearrange your notes, and add hyperlinks to other pages in your notebook to quickly find relevant content. Manage tasks easily with two-way synchronization between OneNote 2007 and the 2003 and 2007 versions of Outlook, or link notes and other information to specific Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2003 contacts to help you better prepare for meetings and recall information easily. If you want to underscore a particularly important point, date, or other piece of information, mark notes with note tags, visually rich icons that make it easier to return to reminders, to-dos, and other action items.
Work Together More Effectively
With team members working from different locations and on multiple projects, communication, coordination, and information sharing can challenge group effectiveness and productivity. Teams often rely on e-mail messages to share information, causing confusion and bloated e-mail inboxes. Tasks, action items, agendas, and issues stored within static documents or document management systems are difficult to update, track, and access, and they prevent multiple people from working with the same information at the same time. OneNote 2007 helps people work together better by eliminating roadblocks that arise when information is isolated in paper notes or file folders, or on one person's computer. Groups can share information easily, work more productively, and keep track of projects, issues, and goals more effectively. Individuals can work together from the same notebook--whether online or offline--using shared notebooks. OneNote2007 manages changes made to the same notebook, eliminating the need to track versions or upload changes.
You can also create a team knowledge base so that everyone has access to the same information, helping to get new team members up to speed quickly, and minimizing duplicate efforts. Share notes even with non-OneNote 2007 users by sending your notes as HTML so that anyone with an e-mail client or Web browser can view them, and stay in control of your information by choosing which notebooks to share with your teammates and which to keep private, and help ensure privacy with password protection. You can even use OneNote 2007 as a shared digital whiteboard, enabling virtual teams to work together in real time, viewing and editing the same set of notes.

Several weeks ago, I downloaded the trial version of OneNote 2007. The improvements are rather subtle, but powerful. It didn't take anything to get comfortable with the new features. After a short time with the trial version I just purchased it because it was so much fun.
Here are some of the beneficial features:
-Like a paper notebook you have sections, but with OneNote 2007 you can have as many sections as you like.
-You can easily link pages to Outlook. I have linked appointments to a series of notes and support files for various projects and meetings. It makes being organized for a meeting a breeze.
-Also, it's a great way to archive emails in a way that allows you to see them and organize them as you wish. You can empty your in box and at the same time keep a record of important emails. Well worth your time.
-It is also tablet friendly if you use a tablet PC like I do. I love it for that use. There is a fantastic text recognition feature that works EXTREMELY well. If you use a tablet, this is a great feature.
-As was with the earlier version, you can add voice content to your notes. That's right, voice recorded messages can be added to your notes. Too cool.
Before you buy, you might want to go to the Microsoft site and download the trial version. You'll be able to assess for yourself. I think you'll be pleased. I fond it to be one of the best products for 'electronic file keeping' that I've used. For the price, it's not a bad deal.
At first, I loved the program and moved lots of my work onto it for easy access. I was trying to convince others to also use OneNote. I put my notebooks up on a network drive so that others could access them and I could access them from anywhere. That was where OneNote failed...
I got it to work across computers at work with several people. For that use, it is miserable. It doesn't integrate well into a secure environment. You will find yourself denied access to the notebook because "a password is required". Never mind that you entered the password to access the drive in the first place or that OneNote doesn't let you enter that password. My solution will be to move the notebook onto a local drive. But this means sharing isn't easy.
Perhaps, if you are in a pure Microsoft network environment, collaboration might work. But, for my business network, OneNote doesn't support a complete multi-user approach. Pity, it has great potential...
Not so with 2007. Microsoft has now made this product as indispensable as Word or Outlook, in my opinion. For instance, I just "inserted as file" a scan from a Magazine I took almost a year ago. OneNote 2007 instantly indexed the article and made it a searchable part of my archive. The same can be done with business cards.
now, imagine that same search functionality with Live audio! You can record meeting sessions and have OneNote index the audio while the computer is idle. Voila! Instant search capability of audio. Plus, during playback, you can see the progression of your notes while the audio plays.
One nifty little feature I really enjoy is the "napkin calculator" just type in a mathematical expression such as "15 x 12 =" and hit space, and OneNote will automatically calculate the answer (and more complex equations, as well.)
Finally, in conjunction with Outlook 2007, OneNote 2007 is a powerful meeting note organizer. By right clicking on any meeting in my Outlook calendar, I can select "OneNote Meeting Notes". It automatically creates a page for keeping those notes. If I want to recall what was discussed in a particular meeting, I can repeat the process, and all notes are there. The links to those notes will even update if you decide to move the notes to a different location!
This is, by far, the best product I have seen from Microsoft to date. Bravo, development team!
