Collecting & Finding Notes

‘WorkingSm@rt’ training is different from ONENOTE Tech training that only shows you how to turn functions on & off but not how to use it productively. ‘WorkingSm@rt’ processes makes ONENOTE highly effective for finding all your information and notes quickly, and being better prepared for meetings.

  • Create, edit, organize, and enhance notes using Microsoft OneNote
  • Integrate your notes with other applications.
