What does OneNote do well?
OneNote is a great application that enables individuals to take great notes. The cloud-based nature of the platform enables individuals to take their notes anywhere across any device. The ability to have information sync across the cloud cannot be undervalued. It has enabled me to have access to key information even if I do not have my primary workstation at hand. Overall, the application offers quite a few customization options to help users organize their thoughts appropriately.
What does OneNote not do well?
In my opinion, there are not too many disadvantages to OneNote. I think there could be a slight learning curve for those not familiar with the platform - as there are many customization options and add-ins that are able to link with OneNote.
What do you wish you had known about OneNote before using?
There are many extensions that offer unique benefits when working with OneNote. For example, there are google chrome applications that enable users to clip web content with one touch to their notes. This allows users to come back and review supporting information if it presents itself.
