Microsoft OneNote as a Working Tool

Microsoft OneNote as a Working Tool
From my very first days on the internet, just over a year ago, I have sought ways to keep track of what I was doing without spending every minute of the day tracking down yesterday’s notes. This week I am exploring Microsoft OneNote as a working tool to keep track of my efforts. 

Up to this point, I have been using MS Word to keep a daily log with many of the bits and pieces that I use every day. I made it easier to find things by using hashtags “#” for the key points. It worked fairly well, giving me a place to drop and review #daily comments and an easy way to keep track of the #links that I was using. I placed my setup header for my PRs at #new and my working PR at #PR. As long as I did not duplicate a hashtag, it was easy to use search to locate the desired section.

Needless to say, this was becoming cumbersome. I would start the month out with a couple of thousand words and end the month with thirty-five thousand plus. As the files get bigger, things tend to slow down. I needed to find an alternative. Something that would make it easier to find the notes I needed.

What I am using is Microsoft OneNote, part of Microsoft Office 2010. It is a notebook style tool that allows you to have multiple notebooks with sections and pages as you find necessary. I can see where it can easily get out of hand but a little planning can help keep your frequent references at hand.

The only problems that I have found with Microsoft OneNote is that it is better to keep a single note on each page and that I no longer have access to the grammar check and word/character counter that is available in MS Word. That is OK. I usually have three different working files open at any given time anyway. I will simply continue to develop my PRs and Comment in my MS Word daily log file and move most of the repetitive items over to the notebook.

One of the great benefits of Microsoft OneNote as a working tool is the Unfiled Notes feature. It places an Icon in your desktop work tray that makes it very easy to grab an interesting note and drop it on your notebook until you get the time to put them where they need to go.

Sometimes, during my working day, I write something that might lead to a good PR or part of an email sequence that I am working on. Microsoft OneNote unfiled notes lets me grab the Idea on the Go. That way, the Ideas are not going in one hand and out the other as so many have in the past.

Microsoft OneNote is widely available for many of the mobile devices today. You may already have it as part of your wordprocessing suite. If not, you may be able to find it for free for your device. Some of the free applications may not be fully functional but it will give you the opportunity to see if it will work for your needs.

Every day we deal with repetitive messages and actions. Whatever we can do to minimize the expenditure of our time is well worth exploration. How many times have you sent the same message to more than one person? Do you have your Mission Statement where you can see it every day? How much of what you do every day would benefit from being placed in one section?

One more, very useful feature is the ability to keep items highlighted on different pages and sections at the same time. They even remain “selected” when you restart it. If you are doing a lot of copy and paste from different sections, this can be very useful. Consider setting up various advertising copy with varying titles. This might be an excellent answer to keeping track of your advertising efforts. 

I am very pleased with the results of my efforts with Microsoft OneNote as a working tool. The more I think about it, the more ways I can see to use it to streamline my work and keep my information organized. When I combine it with my new contacts database, I should be able to start keeping track of the multiple relationships common in today’s networking environment. 

As the Nove-Noga site expands, it is becoming more important to keep track of the varied pieces of information. The Web Tools page, coming soon, requires different information than the page I have dedicated to helping people succeed with the Free Online Opporknockity. Having a great tool like Microsoft OneNote makes it possible to keep the necessary information readily at hand.
