Did you know you can save emails to OneNote?
To set up this functionality, follow a few quick steps:
From now on, any email you are forwarding to firstname.lastname@example.org from those email address(es) will go to the OneNote notebook and section of your choice.
You can save the email messages to a different section by altering the email subject line. Type any subject you want for your forwarded message and append @Section Name to the end of the same subject line, replacing the "Section Name" part with the name of an existing section from your notebook.
Every now and then, we all need to take a few notes during a very busy meeting, and OneNote is here to help. With OneNote 2016 for Windows, note taking can be shared too. That means that besides you, other users can take notes in the same notebook.
To use this feature, you need to ensure that your notebook is saved to OneDrive or SharePoint and is shared with the other meeting users:
Every previously invited user with write permissions will be able to add notes at the same time! The notes will be synced automatically to the notebook:
Collecting information for your projects just got easier and more fun. You can simply add a OneNote bookmark to your toolbar. The next time you visit a website and find any useful information, click on the bookmark and the page will be automatically clipped to OneNote.
Installing the bookmark is easy.
