Microsoft OneNote FAQ

What is OneNote?

OneNote is a powerful digital notebook application from Microsoft. It allows you to store information such as notes, websites, resources, and much more. Think of a loose-leaf binder to which you can add sections and pages, and arrange the binder to suit your needs. OneNote is organised in the same way, and it will sync across your devices so that you can start a note on your phone while getting your morning coffee, and continue it on your laptop back at the office.

Why would I use OneNote?

Do you take notes during meetings? Do you scribble notes on a paper notepad, or do you use sticky notes? Maybe you use both, with the occasional napkin thrown in when inspiration hits you at the café. If this is the case, you should probably be using OneNote. It can be used for many different tasks. Some significant features of OneNote are:

  • Add drawings and screenshots
  • Record Audio
  • Automatically save everything
  • Sync across devices
  • Outlook Integration
  • Convert handwriting to text

These are just some of the features of OneNote, there are many more. If you find yourself flipping through a paper notepad trying to find a detail you wrote 3 weeks ago, you will love OneNote. You can find anything, anywhere quickly and efficiently. You can send your notes to a colleague via Outlook, or one of several other ways, or you can capture an email into OneNote with a couple of clicks.

Should I buy a OneNote for Dummies book or attend a Training Course?

Have you ever wondered why the Dummies books are so popular? Well, mainly it’s because so many of us are self-taught, using Google to find out how to use a function, or we are shown how to use OneNote by a work mate. Although this can be helpful, it also means we spend a lot of time with trial and error, or we are just picking up somebody else’s bad habits. Trial and error, unfortunately involves a lot of error. The habits you pick up will probably be passed on to the next person, so pretty soon they spread across the business, meaning everyone is working inefficiently.

At this point, you might head to the bookstore or do an online search to find a OneNote for Dummies book to help with those tricky problems. That’s a step in the right direction, we use reference manuals ourselves. The problem is that it still takes time to find the information you need.

Our OneNote courses are designed to target the key features and tools in the application so you can get back to work and apply them right away.

Why choose Keystroke Learning?

We Know What Works – Hands-on fully interactive training courses are our bread and butter. Years of real world experience and feedback from our participants have shown us that this type of training produces the best results.
We Listen – Understanding your specific requirements enables us to build the best training for your needs. The best way for us to do that is to listen to what you have to say, rather than imposing our ideas on you.
We Innovate – At Keystroke Learning we continuously monitor technological developments which may have an impact on your business. We also keep a close eye on our training courses and materials and update them as soon as needed.

Why should I attend a Microsoft OneNote Training Course?

Attending a Microsoft OneNote with Keystroke Learning will show you how to use the most efficient methods to achieve your daily tasks. Not only that, but you will discover best practices and shortcuts to make your business tasks even quicker, so you can get on with your day. Our goal is to help you get to the point where you are focussed on the task at hand rather than the tool you are using.

Typically, one of our experienced trainers will walk you through the features and functions of the software, then you will try them out on your own, with tips and guidance on getting the best out of the features. We also encourage participants to ask lots of questions to help you get the most out of your learning experience.
You’ll receive a manual to take away at the end of the course, as well as exercise files so you can practice later, or just to jog your memory when you need.

Is it best to do a full day or a half day course?

Well, it all depends on your particular needs and the amount of time you have available. A half day course will target a smaller number of topics, while a full day course allows time to cover more. Either way, the training course will provide in depth coverage of the features you need to learn, while allowing time for questions and interaction. It really comes down to the specific topics you want to cover and the time you have.

Where are you based?

Keystroke Learning is based in Melbourne, Australia. Most of our training courses take place in the Melbourne CBD, but we also provide Microsoft OneNote in-house training nationwide.

Do you provide online training?

This solution takes educational, training and collaborative experiences to a whole new level, it’s a dynamic learning solution that allows real-time online trainers to work directly with remote users in a virtual classroom environment.

What if I need help after my course?

Every course we run comes with post course support, just email us at or use our support page.

Where is the Save button?

Great question! In OneNote, everything you create is saved automatically, so there is no save button. It’s a bit disconcerting at first, because we are all so conditioned to saving our work frequently, but you soon get used to it. In fact, it’s quite a welcome change.

Can I really handwrite my notes?

You bet! This is one of the really nice features of OneNote. If you use a tablet or touch screen device, such as a Microsoft Surface Pro, you can use the stylus to write notes and draw anywhere on the page. OneNote has a rich set of drawing tools, perfect for those ideas that are best conveyed with images. If you do decide to handwrite your notes, OneNote has a handy ink to text function. It can also perform OCR (Optical Character Recognition) so that later you can even search for text in images.

How can I find my stuff in OneNote?

Don’t worry, OneNote has excellent search capabilities. You can find any content you have created by opening the search box and typing a keyword.  OneNote will highlight anything that meets the search criteria on the current page, the current notebook, or from any of your notebooks. You can narrow down your search by adding more keywords.

Another way to manage your content is by adding tags. By tagging your content, you have another way finding it. For example, if you tag several items as “Discuss with Manager”, you can then use a find tags button to have OneNote display all those items grouped together.

Where do I start on a OneNote page?

OneNote is not a word processor, so there is no need to be neat and tidy. It’s more of a blank canvas, so you can just click anywhere on the page and start typing. Any content you add to OneNote is stored in a container, and it can be moved or copied wherever you like. And don’t forget, you never need to save anything because OneNote saves automatically.

If you want to rearrange your content later on, just drag it to where you want, or cut and paste if necessary. You can move or copy within a notebook, or to another notebook.

Can I link notes to my Outlook Meetings?

Absolutely. If you have Outlook and OneNote installed, you can use OneNote to manage, record, and log your meetings. Your notes can include the date, location, agenda, topic, and attendees.

To add meeting notes, just go to the Home tab and select Meeting Details. You’ll see a list of today’s meetings from your Outlook calendar. Select the Meeting and then add the details and they will be added to the current page in OneNote so you can begin taking notes straight away. You can also choose a meeting from another day if you want to look for another meeting date.

How do I book a course?

You can fill in your details on our booking form but the easiest way is to give us a call on (03) 9999 7780 and let us take care of all the hard work.

What if I want to customise a course?

If an Off the Shelf solution is not quite what you are looking for, training courses can be tailored to the unique requirements of your team. Our courses are modularised with this option in mind, which means that you could mix and match from a selection of existing topics, or we can work with you to develop something specific to your organisation. Either way, we are on hand for advice about the best way to structure your customised training course.

Where to from here?

Your learning doesn’t stop once you have completed your course. We hope you will continue your experience by taking some time to practice what you have learned and apply it to your own situation and environment.

If we have done our job well, you may be inspired to learn even more by attending another course. If you are looking for something other than Microsoft OneNote, we have a comprehensive range of courses available for you to choose from.

We are here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any further advice.

What’s included in the course.

All Keystroke Learning courses come with a USB Pen loaded with your course manual and exercise files, along with a notepad so you can scribble down all those handy shortcuts.You’ll find there is quite a lot included in your course.
