Tip of the Week: Using Microsoft OneNote for Collaboration

Tip of the Week: Using Microsoft OneNote for Collaboration

Have you tried using Microsoft OneNote recently? It’s a great solution for a business setting, as it can provide your organization with plenty of features and capabilities that keep your staff organized and efficient. Thankfully, these features can allow your business to pass OneNote off as a project management tool. We’ll show you how it’s done.

Most projects will require more than one employee to complete, but this also means that these employees will need access to data, materials, and countless other assets--all of which will need to be accessed in order to complete the project as efficiently as possible. Without access to important documents and information, project progress can be stifled. OneDrive helps by storing project notes in a place where anyone who is working on a project can see them, allowing for easy collaboration through a shareable link, and permissions can be added or removed at a glance. 

Tags for Organization
OneNote 2016 lets your organization use tags to access important information in notes quickly. This can be in the form of either single sets of numbers or paragraphs of text. For example, you can include tags such as Important, Question, and Remember for Later. There is also the option to mark it for Discussion with Manager or Send in Email. If you need to change a tag or add a new one, the option is always there. The tags are searchable, making them easy to find in a pinch. This also makes it important to remove unneeded tags, as it can get in the way of finding what you’re looking for.

Customizable Templates
OneNote comes equipped with all kinds of templates that you can apply to a page before adding information to it. That being said, templates should only be considered just that--a template. They might work for your organization out of the box, and they might not. Either way, you can bet that templates are a good way to get things off the ground, saving your organization plenty of time and resources.
