Overall Satisfaction with OneNote

OneNote currently isn't being used at my latest venture; however, I wish it was. Evernote has become a primary competitor for filling in such a gap, but their lack of grouping and stacking folders within notebooks makes management much more tedious. Historically, I used OneNote for all meeting minutes and recaps pe project, as well as managed all general knowledge storage, including contact details and interaction history, URLs of important sites, system admin accounts per server, etc.
  • Ability to stack and order files into folders and folders into books, creating hierarchies of data
  • Strong search functionality
  • Quick responsiveness... No lag
  • Ability to share books, with specific access rights, across the enterprise
  • Please support more graphics. Often I want to embed a video model directly, for example.
  • Please support video and audio files. All mediums of content should be organizable, and openable directly.
  • If sharing a book, allow different depths that can be shared and greater granularity as to who can do what with the shared material. Can we edit one page at the same time? Can we edit two pages at the same time? Can you delete the bottom of the tree? Can you delete the top of the tree?
  • Faster project completion due to knowledge maintenance and distribution
  • Increased personal efficiency with knowledge management
OneNote wins. The permissions management/granularity of control and the ability to build multiple layers on each book make a significant impact.
It is suitable for multiple projects; and/or a project with multiple hands in the pot all trying to manage it to fruition.

Using OneNote

I'm hoping that I either get to a company with OneNote or that I need it in a company that I start.
