Overall Satisfaction with OneNote

I mainly use OneNote to backup data from Facebook (posts in my own small group) and to use each note (each post is a new note) as a to-do list putting them in different sections of a notebook once the issue is raised in it has been handled. I use Pabbly to integrate between the two.
  • It has Notebooks and sections and then individual notes allowing organisation.
  • They are multi-format - Pictures, words, formatting and can move things around the page.
  • The information is accessible both online and offline once synced to the computer (Windows 11).
  • It has image searching.
  • It would be helpful to be able to work with multiple notes at the same time.
  • Search isn't always perfect.
  • It'd be great to be able to edit the order that the notes are in based on a specific format (date/name/format etc).
  • Integration with Pabbly.
  • Image search.
  • Ability to show the image that has been captured from Facebook.
  • It's saved a lot of time (which means money!) in ensuring all concerns are followed up.
  • Ensuring all issues are followed up promptly has meant less criticism for the business which has meant more retained customers.
  • The searchability has saved a lot of time to refer back to information to ensure I have the data when needed.
Evernote worked really well for this - Better than OneNote, but no Pabbly integration which I was switching to. Google Keep is ok, but more for doing sticky-note type notes (even if big ones) rather than sorting a large number of notes. I've also used Nimbus Note - This works well, but only a limited number of OCR per year and somewhat slow loading. Not integration with Pabbly yet. NoteJoy was low in features and doesn't compare.

Do you think OneNote delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with OneNote's feature set?


Did OneNote live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of OneNote go as expected?


Would you buy OneNote again?


It's appropriate where someone is using notes across multiple devices, has a Microsoft office plan, and is just needing it for general notetaking using multi formats. It's not so helpful for someone who doesn't have a Microsoft office plan and needs to deal with multiple notes at the same time or sort by specific measures.
