One Note 2007 is a unique software application that allows users to gather and organize all types of information in one place. You can copy web pages (inlcuding text, graphics and links), e-mail messages, type lists or meeting notes, copy audio or video clips, photos, spreadshees, and much more. Any item in One Note can be synchronized with your Microsoft Outlook as an appointment on your Calendar or as a task on your To Do list. (But wait...there's more...) When you mark it complete in Outlook, it automatically updates OneNote, (or vise versa). And, it's all searchable -- even the audio and video clips.
You can create different notebooks for work and personal pages, and keep file folders for each individual project. My husband and I keep finding more and more uses for this awesome program. I've started doing my homeschool lesson plans in OneNote. I've gathered several recipes from different cooking websites and blogs. And when I copy something from a website, it automatically saves a link referencing the exact online location from which I copied a picture or text. Pretty amazing. I no longer have to remember where I got something, and then try to remember the "path" of clicks it took to get there. One click, and I'm there! Works for me!
Anyway, click on the picture above or on one of the links in this post and it will take you to Microsoft's One Note page. There, you can take an online tour of the entire Microsoft Office suite, and download a free trial of One Note 2007.
