OneNote Gets New Features in SP1

OneNote 2003, Microsoft's six-month-old note-taking addition to the Office family, will get a series of new features in a service pack that Microsoft previewed Tuesday.

While Microsoft Word is designed for fully formatted documents, Microsoft designed OneNote for taking notes on a computer. It works on desktops and laptops but offers the most functionality on Tablet PCs and is one of the first major applications written with tablets in mind.

The OneNote 2003 SP1 Preview was released on Tuesday, and the final version of the service pack will become available with the full Office 2003 SP1 this summer. New features coming in OneNote SP1 include support for:

  • Copying written or audio notes into OneNote from a Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC or Smartphone.
  • Recording video notes and synchronizing video with typed or handwritten notes.
  • Capturing screen images into OneNote with time and date stamps and URLs.
  • Adding scanned images or photos taken with digital cameras or Webcams.
  • Third-party add-ons through an API.
  • Inserting documents from other Office programs into OneNote.
  • Importing meeting details from Outlook.
  • Creating Outlook contacts and appointments from OneNote.
  • Sending notes to Word.
  • Sharing OneNote sessions in real-time.
  • Password-protection and encryption of notebook sections.
  • Share notes through Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 or Windows SharePoint Services.

    The preview is available here.
