OneNote

OneNote is great for making it really easy to take, organize and access your notes across devices. It's not great for collaboration (which is probably by design). Also, sometimes the interface can be a little slow to work with.

Pros

  • It makes it really easy to capture notes in different formats - text, pictures, copy & paste, videos, etc.
  • It makes it really easy to organize notes by using the concept of notebooks - which are thematic ways to organize your notes
  • The mobile app is easy to use and navigate, which means I can always have my notes with me, even if I'm not in front of my computer

Cons

  • OneNote should integrate with meeting management tools (e.g. Zoom) and automatically transcribe meetings and provide all attendees with notes
  • OneNote should integrate with workflow processing tools so that any deliverables or goals coming out of a meeting can be captured and tracked against resources & timelines
  • At a corporate level, OneNote should help companies find which employees are SME's in particular areas by analyzing their data and content

Even if it's not intuitive, you can easily save your work until you can figure out how to do something.

Alternatives Considered

For me, OneNote is way simpler and easier to use. Furthermore, the storage options was one of the key factors that I choose OneNote. Since it's a software for my PC, I can just store all the documents on my computer and I will never have the fear of running out of space and then having to spend extra money on expanding my storage capacity.
