Today, we're launching the official Microsoft OneNote blog here on The Office Blog. Whether you're new to OneNote's genius for capturing, organizing, and recalling everything in your life, or you're already an avid fan, you'll find the best tips, how-to's, ideas and latest news right here. I'm Michael C. Oldenburg, a Technical Writer for Office.com. I've been a member of the OneNote product team since 2003, shortly after the first version of OneNote was released. I've worked on a lot of products during my 14 years at Microsoft, but I must confess that OneNote is my hands-down favorite Microsoft program, and one of my favorite software programs ever. I rely on it to organize every major project — at work and in my personal life — and I really can't wait for everyone to start using OneNote 2010.
In my spare time for the past 3 years, I've been blogging about OneNote at Nota Bene, my former blog on MSDN (a big shout-out to my loyal readers!). Moving that effort here to the Office blog platform lets me integrate blogging into my regular work (Yes!). I'll be posting here regularly to keep you up-to-date on learning and using OneNote 2010. I'll also curate guest posts from the product team and other experts. No matter how you use OneNote, I hope this blog will become an indispensable resource for you. If you subscribe to the RSS feed, you won't miss a thing. And if you're still new to OneNote and wonder what all it can do, have a look at my previous blog post, OneNote: The best-kept secret in Microsoft Office.
A blog is a conversation, so I really hope that you'll join in to let me know what's useful. Tell me what you think of the new OneNote 2010 features and how you use them (or plan to). What kinds of projects is OneNote helping you with right now? Comments are always welcome, so whether you're following me here from my old blog or you happened here by chance, I hope you'll post a quick comment to let me know you stopped by.

Nice to see an official dedicated site for OneNote. As you have told that this is a major software but the information about it is very limited. We need a comprehensive Blog about it and this is what we expect. How it will fulfill the expectations.
I'll be interested to read your posts as time goes by - I just subscribed to the feed.
Here is some potential blog-post fodder...
I have been using OneNote for years and really like it. It seems like it hasn't *evolved* for years, though, and I'm disappointed that with 2010 I still can't:
1) Make handwritten notes searchable (photographed with my mobile device and sync'd through OneNote mobile).
2) Store my notes on a cloud and automatically sync when my computer (or phone) is connected.
Inking directly with a tablet worked great for handwriting recognition, but I need more power in my laptop (it's really a desktop replacement, and an excellent software development machine). I don't want to lug a tablet around too.
I also don't really want to move to Evernote - I don't mind paying for the service, but I had it lose notes for no apparent reason during two different experiments. I don't trust it.
A way to use and sync OneNote Notebooks as a teacher to share material:

So...when are we going to see OneNote live via Skydrive? That's the question everyone is asking.
OneNote has been the best kept secret for far too long.
It's a fantastic app. As innovative now as it was years ago, and the tablet pc killer app nobody knew about.
Time to tell the world about it.
+1 on Jonathans Question.... when are we getting SkyDrive integration? Nuts to Word, Excel, and all the rest. OneNote is the ONLY application in Office I NEED this for...
Hi there from Donegal, Ireland, Michael. I need, you or maybe my fellow OneNote bloggers, to help me with a fairly urgent problem. I use the invaluable Print to OneNote function an awful lot and since I installed MS Office 2010 this function has simply disappeared. I've spent many frustrating hours consulting various fora that discuss the problem and have tried everything that is recommended including MS Office repair and setting up a new printer driver.
I basically don't seem to have a Send to OneNote printer port any more and my original OneNote (2007) installation CD is about 250 miles from where I am at the moment.
any help would be appreciated
all the best
How do you create a new notebook from a template in OneNote 2010? You could do it in ON 2007 but I don't see that feature in ON 2010. I just started using OneNote for the first time a few days ago.
Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! We're still tweaking some settings here on the new site, so if you catch anything out of the ordinary, please be patient with us. We're definitely working on it. ;)
