Recently I was having a conversation with a coworker who had tried OneNote in the past, but had given up because she couldn't customize the look of her notebook in a way that made her productive. Spending a few minutes with her, I showed her how to quickly make the customization she wanted.
Links to other content within your notebook and links to external areas, including documents or web pages, is the webbing that connects your thoughts and notes together.
I created a short video showing the basics of creating links in OneNote. There are additional layers of linking that we can get into in the future, but this video should be the 80% (think 80/20 rule) that you need to be productive with linking notes in OneNote.
OneNote pages begin as a blank, expandable canvas that expand to meet your needs. But maybe you want something a little different for the project you are working on. The video below shows you how to add rule lines or grid lines, change the background color, and adjust the page size. Below the video I will suggest a few times you may want to work with these customizations.
I was recently challenged by Microsoft OneNote MVP Marjolein Hoekstra to use a new OneNote keyboard shortcut every day, for thirty days in a row. I gladly accepted the challenge and have learned 30 OneNote keyboard shortcuts. Many of these are now a part of my daily OneNote use. This post covers 30 OneNote keyboard shortcuts.
