Overall Satisfaction with OneNote

OneNote is used throughout our organization. It assists areas in many ways, but specific to my area, we use it as an information repository and a central point of reference for many topics, from meeting agendas, notes, and attachments to policy and proceedure housing.
  • OneNote makes organization easy!
  • OneNote can serve as a central repository for an entire department's materials.
  • OneNote can also capture just your own personal information. It's all about how you set it up and use it to organize information.
  • If you do not understand the basic structure of how to setup a OneNote database, it can be cumbersome to learn at first.
  • Regarding a shared OneNote database: Your organizational structure may not always be how someone else would structure information.
  • Centralized information.
  • Electronic system for capturing information and attachments.
  • Integrates well with other Microsoft products.
SharePoint is another Microsoft product that could be adapted and used similar to OneNote. However, if you are looking for a simple system with the flexibility for any user to start it up and build their own information repository, OneNote is your solution. OneNote also integrates very well into SharePoint if you are using SharePoint as your intranet solution. You can have your OneNote files render in SharePoint through the Office Web Apps solution.
It's a solid, simple solution to organizing information. The price is right and well worth the money. User adoption can be simply done through basic training to get users started.
OneNote is fantastic at organizing information.

During selection, ask for specific examples of how information could be organized to generate ideas about how you would organize your content.
