What is Microsoft OneNote?

Microsoft OneNote is a note-taking application that is part of Microsoft Office. You can look at it as a hub for your notes. With it, you can organize them into notebooks, which you can then organize into sections and pages. OneNote not only supports text but also a whole range of multimedia formats that you can include within your notes. It further has a familiar Office-like interface, and it allows you to share your notes in real-time with others.

Some of OneNote's other features include:

  • Revision tracking

  • Secure storage

  • Compatibility with multiple operating systems and devices, including mobile

  • Ability to scan and convert handwritten text

  • Touch capabilities

OneNote differentiates itself from Word in that, while Word is intended for the creation of documents, OneNote is meant as a place where people can collaborate on ideas. It is not uncommon to start a project in OneNote during the planning stage and then finish it in Word.
