In OneNote 2010 Essential Training, instructor David Rivers demonstrates how OneNote can be used to take notes, organize thoughts, do research, and collaborate with others on projects. This course shows how to quickly add rich content to notebooks, format the content with OneNote's new formatting and styles capabilities, organize information to suit individual needs, and retrieve information effectively. It also shows how to take advantage of the robust OneNote 2010 sharing and collaboration features like Outlook integration, change highlighting and page versioning, wiki-style linking, and the OneNote web applications. Exercise files accompany the course.
So we now know that OneNote 2010 contains a number of templates that are built-in for us to choose when creating new pages in a notebook. You can also create your own and even access others from Office Online. Here we are in our TwoTrees8 notebook. We've created a new section called User Conference and you can see we've got our brand-new page called Project Overview and it's using the Project Overview template. We start to fill in some of the information. Let's make a few changes though here.
We'll double-click the word Project and change it to Conference. This will be a nice template for us to use each year when we create our project for the User Conference for that year. Down below, you can see we've got information in here already, User Conference 2010. Let's just take out the 2010, so we can add that as needed. The name of the company will stay the same. The presenter name should stay the same. So we made a couple of changes here. Let's go up to the Title, and let's just change the color of that.
So we'll select it, we'll go to the Home tab, and change the Font color from the Basic Text Group here to an even darker blue, so I'll just go a little darker. So we've made some changes to the actual template itself. Maybe we'd like to save this as a template that we can use in the upcoming years each time we get ready to create the User Conference project. Well, in that case, with our Templates task pane still showing here-- And by the way if you've closed yours out by clicking the Close button, you simply get it back by going to the New Page drop-down and selecting Page Templates, just like that.
Down below though, you're going to see something that allows you to creating new template and right below that, there's only one link, Save Current Page as a Template. So when you click this, you just have to give it a name. Let's call it Conference Overview as opposed to Project Overview. You can even set this as the default template, so every time you create a new page this is what you're going to get. That doesn't make sense to us right now. So we'll simply click Save and it's now in a new category that gets created called My Templates.
You'll always see all of your custom templates together in the My Templates group. So when you expand this, you'll be able to select it for any new pages. As soon as I click this, you can see I've got a brand new page and it's identical to the page that we just modified. Let's right-click that second page and delete it. We don't really need it at this time, but we will need it next year when we go to create our User Conference Project for 2011. So it's really simple to create your own, and remember, you can do all kinds of things with the page, changing the look and feel, the contents, the placeholders, and just simply go to the very bottom of the Templates task pane to save your current page as a template.
