Learn how to set up folders and places to store the things you’ll add to OneNote.
- [Instructor] Let's briefly discuss how to set up folders…and places to store the things you'll add to OneNote.…First, we've already established the Quick Notes section…for unprocessed items.…Once an item is processed in Quick Notes,…it needs to be moved to a different section.…The section that you move processed items to…really depends upon your choice.…Notice how we've already set up an Email Archive section…for long-term storage of important emails…and a Perhaps section for those ideas…that we're not really committed to yet.…
But what other sections should we create?…I recommend creating a section called General Archive first.…Do this by clicking on New Section…and then after you create it, if you want to…you can give it a different color if you prefer.…General Archive is where the majority of your items will go.…This is where you put anything that you're just keeping…because you might need it at some point in the future.…Keep in mind that there's no archive button in OneNote…like there is in Outlook.…
So, when you're done processing a note,…
- Recall why it is recommended to move your reading pane to the bottom of the screen in Outlook.
- Name the recommended amount of sections to have for your OneNote notes.
- Recognize questions that should not be asked when processing an email.
- List the correct steps for creating an email rule.
- Identify what should be used as a gathering point.
- Recall the benefits of repetition.
