  • OneNote

    I recently purchased a Tablet PC which came bundled with MS OneNote 2003.
    Does anyone have any thoughts or experiences on integrating its format and handwriting recognition capibilities into the GTD format, generally, and Outlook, specifically?

    Seems like it might be a powerful tool.

    I use OneNote on a desktop PC. So no inking for me, yet I have and do use it as my electronic "InBox." GTD suggests the use of a real inbox for all papers to go into to be processed. Since a lot of my ideas originate while at the PC, I have renamed "SideNotes" feature (file folder) to InBox. Now when ever I need to get something down fast... I just create a sidenote which goes into my electronic inbox. Then I process that just as I do a physical inbox.

      It could be a powerful took eventually but its still young. It's eventually going to be a fine free form outliner, especially when the Outlook integration becomes better and they get the scripting up and running for it. My view is that OneNote is the wave of the future that hasn't arrived, yet. Whether you want to use it now or not depends on what you want to do with it.

        I use onenote with my tablet pc and I like it. It is nice to be able to take notes in a meeting and not have to retype - I can convert if I need to email the notes. Onenote is good - but it flys on the tablet!!

          I use Onenote on a tablet constantly (in meetings a lot I guess!). I have recnetly discovered Onenote flags (from Chris Pratley's blog http://blogs.msdn.com/chris_pratley/...3/411062.aspx). This gives me the ability to take lots of notes, and flag the next actions, new projects, whatever. During my weekly review I open Onenote, go to the flag summary view and I can see everything that needs to go into Outlook. If notes need to go into Outlook right now, select the note and create an Outlook task from it, and it is in Outlook. THe items I add to Outlook immediatley I still flag in Onenote, but then I mark the item as "completed" (not completed, but in my trusted system of Outlook).

          I have found this so much better than lots of paper notes I need to process, but your mileage may vary...
