Overall Satisfaction with OneNote

It is being used in our department to keep track of various contract documents. It helps us organize everything that relates to a specific contract in one place. It helps keep everything organized and in a format that allows for expedited retrieval. The time stamp feature allows us to organize content so the most recent updates are at the top.
  • It is so easy to organize your data by topic.
  • OneNote is user friendly and it can quickly be picked up by people who have never worked with OneNote before.
  • The features are very similar to other Microsoft Office products which makes using it and sharing with other employees simple.
  • It is an affordable way to group and organize company information.
  • It would be nice if OneNote had some more robust table features.
  • I would like to see Linked Notes with an improved way to connect to Excel.
  • OneNote could have more drawing tools added to make it that much better.
  • OneNote has had a positive ROI because navigation to specific files is expedited.
  • OneNote allows new documents to quickly be added to each tab/page which makes our team more efficient.
  • OneNote has an integration to Outlook so keeping tasks on schedule is so much easier.
OneNote is so easy to learn especially for users that have worked in Excel and Word. The ability to quickly hyperlink and post documents into OneNote is why we selected it. OneNote is already part of Office 365 so it made financial sense as well to utilize the product. OneNote will have automatic updates so new features will be available through Office 365.
The support for OneNote seems to be relatively high. I think that as more companies fully leverage Office 365 they will start using OneNote to help them with business documents. I think that more marketing dollars could go towards OneNote making more people aware of it and all that it can do for businesses.

OneNote is well suited when you have data that can be organized by department, job, contract, etc. Each tab in OneNote allows you to quickly add documents and hyperlinks to quickly get users the data they would need instead of navigating a shared network drive. OneNote allows you to quickly create new Notebooks allowing users to move to a new notebook at a specific time interval.
