Thanks for one notable decade

David Rasmussen is the Partner Group Program Manager of OneNote and coincidentally has been working on OneNote for almost exactly 10 years. :-)

This month OneNote celebrates 10 years of helping users capture notes at home, school, work and anywhere in between. In that time, OneNote has grown and added features for managing everything from recipe collections, to class notes, to projects and events–across phones and tablets, as well as the PC. 

Here are just a few stories that highlight the amazing things people are doing with OneNote.

Writing The Conjuring : The Hayes Brothers

Screenwriting twins, Chad and Carey Hayes, wrote this summer’s blockbuster horror film The Conjuring, using OneNote. Using tablets and inking, the Hayes brothers were able to develop the killer script. See how OneNote made The Conjuring a success, and why the Hayes twins can’t imagine working without it. 

Calling the plays: Joe Block 

Milwaukee pro baseball announcer, Joe Block, uses OneNote to keep track of 750 players over 162 games every season. See how Joe keeps tabs on stats, player information, and fun facts in OneNote so he’s able access them in a moment’s notice, and call the perfect game.

Planning a wedding: Ambir and George 

Wedding planning can be stressful under normal circumstances, but add 300 miles between any recently engaged couple, and you’ve got a whole different challenge. See how Ambir and George were able to overcome distance to plan the wedding of their dreams. 

We’d love to hear how you use OneNote at home, school, or work or anywhere in between. Share your OneNote story with us in the comments below, and who knows; maybe you’ll be the focus of our next OneNote video profile.

And be sure to check out OneNote.com for ways you can better organize ideas and information to channel your inner script writer, baseball announcer or wedding planner.

  1. I use OneNote all the time! As soon as one of my paper lists begins to take on a life of it’s own, I know it’s time for OneNote. It’s my "brain away from home" and keeps me organized and on track. I’ve used it for planning a vacation, coordinating nursing care for my grandparents and managing the aftermath of a car accident. I’d be lost without it!

  2. How did we function before OneNote? I’ve been using it since 2003, and each update seems to add more functionality but still it’s easy to use. I wish it had been around when I was in college – it would have made taking notes so much easier.

  3. Happy 10th Birthday OneNote. It’s good to see you getting noticed more now.

  4. I LOVE OneNote, I have it on my phone, PC, and tablet!!! I especially love the OneTastic and OneCalender extensions for it. Are there any plans to build in features like that?

  5. I love OneNote to take notes for articles I’m writing. It’s like having digital notebooks (that won’t get lost between the car’s seats) on hand, anywhere, any time. I’ve used OneNote from a parking lot when I suddenly had to interview a doctor who decided he was free at that moment. I just fired up my tablet and took notes on the spot. Cool stuff! That’s why I’m an Office 365 Champion– to spread the word.

  6. …am just learning this software and I hope it meets the marks set by Word and PowerPoint.
