Most of us take notes in some way or another - on a piece of paper, in a notebook, or with some app. But are your notes always readily available when you need them? And more importantly, can you easily find a specific note you're looking for?

I tried a lot of note-taking systems in the past and I can't tell you how many great ideas were lost over the years because I just couldn't find the piece of paper anymore, I scribbled some notes on. It wasn't until I found a way to use Microsoft OneNote effectively that it changed for the better. Many people don't know that OneNote is much more than just a digital notebook.

In this OneNote tutorial (in 2020), I explore how you can take full advantage of OneNote, and share my 5 personal OneNote tips and tricks on how you can become more organized.

Leila's Tips:
01:46 Use Hierarchies to Get Organized
04:37 Use Tags to Find What You Need
07:04 Capture Ideas Anywhere With Sticky Notes
08:23 Extract Text From Images
09:35 Focus With Immersive Reader
