Tip of the Week: Learn to Use Digital Note-Taking Apps
Notebooks are one of the oldest and most reliable ways of taking notes. You probably have many notebooks sitting around the office filled with information. Of course, with today’s technology growing more accessible, digital notebooks have grown in popularity. In fact, they might even be more dynamic and helpful than the traditional notepad. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your digital note-taking solution.
Select Your Tools
Technology provides several alternatives to the traditional notebook for note-taking. You can use laptops, tablets, and even smartphones for note-taking, and they all handle it in different ways. Notes can either be typed on a keyboard, recorded with your voice, or scrawled out with a touch screen. These devices have plenty of features that a traditional notebook can’t compete with, including connections to online content, cloud storage, and spell check. These devices have several applications, including Microsoft OneNote, EverNote, and Apple Notes which can offer utility you can’t get elsewhere.
Explore Format Options
These applications are filled with possibilities, and they can give your notes some much-needed customization and character. For example, you could add graphs, images, and other visual elements to make your notes more engaging. This also provides context and can help you better understand your notes.
Keep Your Notes Organized
Digital note-taking tools can be helpful for businesses, as they are much easier to maintain and manage. For example, they can all be centrally located and organized instead of notes being strewn across multiple notebooks or notepads. These notes can even be searchable by date or topic, among keywords and other ways to help you keep track of them.
