Overall Satisfaction with OneNote

OneNote is being used by a mix of people across teams and departments. It's not being used universally by all teams and functions. OneNote is great for making and organizing meeting notes. It also has a nice iOS app, which makes your notes accessible across devices. Lastly, because it's backed by Microsoft, I feel that my information is a lot safer than it might be with a smaller company that doesn't have Microsoft's resources.
  • 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
  • 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
  • OneNote makes me more productive because I'm always able to remember discussion points and next steps for any meeting
  • OneNote makes me less reliant on my laptop, when I'm having an informal coffee meeting, for example, which can be freeing
  • OneNote can sometimes be a little slow to use, which can be frustrating when I'm trying to type fast and make notes
I don't like Evernote's privacy policy. Plus, they were hacked and I don't think they're paying enough attention to their security. Evernote is decent for a consumer experience or a college student, but I think when it comes to an enterprise use case, it's really important to have trust and security in your note-taking platform.
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.
