Out and About with OneNote Mobile

As part of our ongoing mission to capture all the information you need to keep, it makes a heck of a lot of sense to let you capture information while you’re on the go away from your desk – even without your laptop. As you may know, the current version of OneNote 2003 can sync…

OneNote 12 Beta 1 released!

Beta 1 of “OneNote 12” (and “Office12”) is now available for download for those people who are signed up (you know who you are). This is not a public beta so if you’re not already on the beta you are not going to be able to see it. Sorry. If you want to play with…

OneNote PowerToys contest update

Many people have been asking me about the PowerToys contest. We got over 1000 submissions, which was a little overwhelming and quite a bit more than we expected. We went through them all and selected 12 semi-finalists who we contacted. We have now received their PowerToys and are evaluating them. Evaluating a PowerToy is not…

More OneNote 12 Goodness

I thought I would discuss a few new capabilities of “OneNote 12” that I think many current users are dying to see appear. Certainly each of these has appeared many times in our newsgroups and in our suggestion lists in the OneNote community site. Remember that “OneNote 12” is a codename, and we use 12 because…

Unifying the analog and the digital with OneNote

One of the long term visions for OneNote is to bring together “your information” and make it findable and reusable, regardless of format. When we look at the types of info we try to help people organize, it is obvious that a lot of it lives outside the digital realm: Business cards, handouts, receipts. People…

OneNote 12 begins…

Today we’ve been talking about Office12 at the PDC (Professional Developer’s Conference) in L.A. There are blogs going up about Office12 from some of the people on the team (see for example Jensen Harris  ). BillG’s keynote is also up – the first 30-40min covers Office 12 and Vista – good stuff. One of the obvious changes…

Setting up your OneNote notebook

A discussion I had today reminded me of a design conundrum we went through with OneNote when we were preparing it for first release. A guy I was talking to today said that he thought (for his web site storage product) it would be lame to put example folders on the site to try to…
