Posted In MS office, Online Storage - By Techtiplib on Friday, November 16th, 2012 With No Comments »

OneNote Web App lets you create, view, and edit OneNote notebooks in your web browser. To use OneNote Web App, store your notebook online, using a service like Microsoft SkyDrive or Office 365.

If you are using OneNote Web App with SharePoint 2010 or if you’re using Internet Explorer 7, see Introduction to OneNote Web App and OneNote Web App at a glance.

Create a notebook

Sign in to SkyDrive or your team site and create a notebook in the browser. Click Create > OneNote notebook, and give the notebook a name.

Take notes in the browser

OneNote Web App stores a digital notebook that you can add to by opening it in your browser and typing anywhere on the page. In addition to typing and formatting text, you can add pictures from your computer or from Microsoft’s online service. OneNote Web App saves your work automatically; there’s no Save command. If you change your mind about something press Ctrl+Z (Windows) or ⌘+Z (Mac) to undo.

Tabs along the left side of the screen represent pages, which are grouped into sections, to help you organize your thoughts.

Add new pages and sections by right-clicking a section tab.

If you try to type in the notebook and nothing happens, you’re probably in Reading view. Switch to Editing view: click Edit Notebook > Edit in OneNote Web App.

Share OneNote notes online

Because your notebook is online, you can share it by sending a link instead of an email attachment. By clicking the link, people can read your notes in their web browser.

Work together on a OneNote notebook

Working together in a notebook is a good way to brainstorm ideas or do research for a group project. OneNote Web App shows you updates as they happen, and you can see who did what on the page: Go to View > Show Authors (click it again to hide author names).

OneNote keeps the notebook in sync with everyone, even if they’re using different devices. Your colleagues can be using OneNote Web App, OneNote 2010 or later, or OneNote Mobile on their phone or tablet.
