Mac users will like Microsoft OneNote, finally. Microsoft has just announced that there are a slew of new features heading for the Mac (both OSX and iOS versions) of OneNote. This includes the ability to import files from emails and from OneDrive for Business storage.
All of the new improvements are part of the ongoing efforts that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has set as a goal for the company to get their software to work on all devices. They have even launched a Kindle version of the software.
So what can we all look forward to doing?
Most of the changes have been made to improve OneNotes’ compatibility to act as a digital framework for storing notes and other reference materials, especially with students and businesses in mind—which is a big reason the changes affect both mobile and desktop operating systems.
Let’s go over some quick changes:
- OneNote users can now create to-do lists to store their files (and share them too).
- Users can also manage their files in the home section of OneNote or in the program itself.
- Notes can now be saved in emails as a PDF or can be inserted into the message body.
- iOS devices can take a file attachment from an email and open it directly in the OneNote app.
- You can also rearrange your notes, and they will save to either OneDrive or OneDrive for Business.
- Lastly, you can now work with password-protected notes with multiple users.
Microsoft will keep improving these apps to work with multiple platforms, and we will try to keep everyone up to date when we hear the news.
