Microsoft OneNote is a digital notebook and the perfect partner to the paperless office. The key message of this article was to give OneNote a try. It’s been around for quite a long time but there are plenty of people that have yet to use it that could benefit from it.

This article highlights many features that can change how you manage your email forever. We’re not exaggerating; some of these features, like Clean Up or Sniffer, are significant timesavers and make email management easier and more effective.

Give it a read, it’s worth your time. And, if you use those features, you’ll make that time back in spades.

Pssst, we also explain the steps to take before printing out a spreadsheet – so you can avoid topping up the scrap paper pile!
