Tips for OneNote
Create separate work and personal folders and store everything else below that level
Can create custom note flags and then search easily for them; for example, to store items for follow-up with your line manager or (for academic use) to highlight whenever a lecturer says "this will appear on the exam"!
When you send a OneNote page as email, it sends both the OneNote page as a .one file and also as HTML in case the recipient doesn't have OneNote installed.
Press Windows + N to create a new side note. This can be handy when you're in another application and you want to take notes in a smaller window without having to tile windows: side notes have a reduced UI to minimise clutter. Side notes are also ideal for taking "Post-It" style notes such as telephone numbers.
You can also drag and drop from a web page in IE into a OneNote page and it automatically adds the URL that it came from.
Use audio notes to take a recording of a meeting and have this bookmarked against what you're typing - you can then bring back the audio that matches your notes with a single click.
New SP1 Features
Screen clippings allow you to do a screen capture of a selected area and have it dumped directly into OneNote.
Insert Outlook Meeting Details automatically dumps the calendar details from Outlook at the top of a page: this makes it really easy to (for example) search notes for the attendees.
You can create a peer-to-peer shared session: great for status meetings, where everyone can add updates for their own project area. This can also be used in a read-only mode for broadcasting your own notes out (for example, in a presentation).
You can insert an Office document (along with a link to the original document) and then annotate that document using ink or text.
Video notes - they work in the same way as audio.
Create a group notebook by sharing out a directory containing a notebook; if someone is writing in the section at the time, you see a read-only view until they finish or time out. You could use this to share a single notebook across multiple machines.
There's a Pocket PC and Smartphone import feature that allows notes and voice notes to be imported into OneNote. This is unidirectional, however.
COM Extensibility API - one class (
) containing two methods:
. There's a preview of the documentation available
on the web
. The Import method takes an XML document that allows you to specify a page (keyed by GUID) and even insert ink.
When you search for handwritten text, OneNote automatically searches for alternates, so even if the text hasn't been properly recognised it shouldn't stop it from working effectively.
There was a lot of internal debate about whether OneNote would be accepted without a manual save button; in the end it turns out that not many people found this hard to deal with, and that most customers quickly got used to the auto-save feature.
The OneNote team use
to search blogs for entries relating to OneNote - so whenever you blog about OneNote the team will automatically read it as customer feedback!
The development team are "thinking" about a OneNote viewer - presumably a free redistributable for sharing notebooks with users who don't have it.

Is there a way to have the shared session send send keep-alives? Or to rejoin a shared session without having OneNote create a new copy of the (unchanged) page?
After about a minute or so of inactivity I find that the session disconnects with "The shared session ended unexpectedly. To rejoin the session, follow the instructions on the Join Shared Session task pane." I think that the problem may be NAT session timeout or similar (though nothing else seems to manifest a similar problem - I keep ssh connections open for days). There is no option to rejoin a session. Joining again gives me a new copy of the shared page.
