OneNote Resources and Resources for OneNote

Updated: Jun 12, 2018

So you already use OneNote and want more.  More templates, plug-ins, add-ins and applications for OneNote. Here are the resources I frequently use.


Microsoft Office Blogs

Microsoft has provided one website to access all blogs for all Microsoft Products. I selected which products I used, then added the filtered RSS feed to my Outlook. This is a quick and convenient way to get up-to-date information on features to try, great articles to share.


Onetastic for Microsoft OneNote

I use this add-in on a daily basis.  Onetastic has fantastic features to escalate your experience using OneNote including Macros (my favorite), OneCalendar, Image Utilities, Custom Styles and Favorites.

From Macroland, you choose which macro to download and install into your OneNote 2010 or 2013 desktop application.

These are the macros I install and use all the time. They appear on your Home tab

I use sort almost daily to help keep my pages, sections and notebooks organized.  Each macro has a description of the function that appears when you hover over the feature.

Gem for OneNote

Gem for OneNote is similar to Onetastic but does have dozens of additional features such as counts for paragraphs, pages, sections and notebooks, inserting web cam images and Change Case options.

Gem creates additional tabs in OneNote: GEM, EDIT, OBJECT, LINK, COOPERATION

For only $33, this Add-In is definitely a great value.
