Supercharged #OneNote in #MicrosoftTeams for #Office365 Education

The last couple of weeks I’ve been training a company on #Office365 for Education subscriptions. I noticed something pretty cool in #MicrosoftTeams that I’d like to share with you. I’m really hoping we’ll get this in the Enterprise and Small Business package too!


Let’s first create some awareness. I have way to many awesome men in my life that I want to be around when I grow old.

Staff Notebook:

First I noticed the Staff Notebook on the General Channel. When you click on it, it gives you options to create a private space for your staff:

Here’s more details of what you can expect to see:

On the other channels there appears a Notes Tab:

Only once you physically create a page in that Notes section, does it create the section in SharePoint.

I think this is awesome!!! Pretty please Microsoft, can we have this in the other subscriptions? Currently I’m creating the sections in the OneNote manually and teaching my clients to do so.

New Initiative:

Every couple of months I’m going to travel to a new country, rent a motorcycle, and travel to as many communities as possible, for 15.2 days. Purpose would be to create awareness around Digital Literacy and give users an overview of Office 365 Apps and Services and how it can transform their lives. I’ll do video and written blogs to capture and share my journey and experiences.

Feedback would be crucial, and I’ll be using Microsoft Forms & Flow to gather valuable feedback for myself and Microsoft. I will be inviting other community members to join me on my journey when I’m in their respective areas.

Of course it wouldn’t be possible without sponsorship to help support this cause. Reach out if you’re interested on getting involved in any way, here’s a link to a Microsoft Form that can be completed:  https://bit.ly/2LaQBRQ

#Microsoft365 Day 284: Calm the chaos with Find Tags in #OneNote

I have way too many Notebooks with even more sections and pages in. To try and remember where I tagged something for follow up, or something that I should come back to at a later stage, is near impossible. With Tags you can categorize something as Important, Questions, Task, Movie to watch, Book to read and more. Find Tags summarizes it all in one place for you. Voila!! Don’t you just love OneNote??

#Microsoft365 Day 278: Send important emails to #OneNote pages

This is a winner for sure!!! At the moment it only seems to send to your personal OneNote, but I’m going to try and figure that out. I immediately thought of saving time and being much more productive by sending all my conference and trip confirmations to pages in #OneNote. Much easier to keep track this way as it’s available offline.
