When you are the organizer of a meeting, you typically have to take notes of the meeting and share them with all the participants. This can sometimes be a lot of work. Did you know there's an easier way to do it in OneNote?
  • Open a OneNote notebook and add a page to a section of the notebook.
  • Choose Meeting Details from the ribbon bar and select the meeting you need.

  • The meeting information is automatically populated on the page (meeting subject, date, participants list, and notes area). Now you can easily indicate who participated in the meeting and take notes about what was discussed.
