Overall Satisfaction with Hugo - Meeting Notes Software

The combination of calendar and note-taking, addresses the problem of convenience, especially when it comes to meetings that involve presentation - you usually have hundreds of tabs open, hence having software that can at least combine 2 of these tabs into one is a lot of help since you are usually off your double screen during such meetings.
  • Convenience
  • Smart access.
  • Efficiency
  • Ways to combine more functions.
  • It could be more User-friendly.
  • Limits you to a particular calendar event when taking notes.
  • Its importance is limited to note taking.
  • Return on investment is great - used basic free version while it lasted.
  • Engagement is key - more basic features might potentially lead to users wanting to sign up for premium.
OneNote is just classic - people who have been using it will never consider switching to a newcomer like Hugo. One limitation that OneNote has though which Hugo might be able to play to its advantage is - high barriers to the entrance for new users. It's not exactly intuitive to navigate at first if you have never used it before, hence you should be targeting those users instead of chasing users loyal to OneNote.

I think it's important to understand that software recommendations do not come up casually during conversations with your friends so recommending it with no agenda is off the table. However, if someone asks me for tips on note-taking during calls my first priority would be OneNote because it just has more functionality and is usually built-in, meaning you don't have to search for anything online. The second priority would be Hugo though.
