Finally, I can reveal one of the hot projects I was working on this month. I can now share another technology post brought to you by a very technologically dependent person. I am a user of all of Microsoft Office products, and recently added OneNote to my daily routine. I planned a trip to Ha Noi, Viet Nam to entice SO (significant other) to Re-live our adventure. I needed the file to be accessible, as well as editable by anyone whom I decided to share it with. Let’s put it this way, it’s not done until “the man” say the final word, so OneNote was perfect because SO can edit and delete whatever he didn’t want from my saved OneNote TripBook.
It was so easy to plan and organize this trip. Not to mention, I saved so much time with research and it was by far the quickest way for me to compile information into one place. OneNote allowed me to create a trip with personality through the options to draw by hand, color the pages, and organize each point of traveling in different tabs. I can even record myself reiterating a point that I wanted to make and incorporate it within my OneNote trip book. Unlike other applications, OneNote is so very flexible that I can pull info from anywhere and paste it on the note pages. I don’t have to worry about the placement of the links or articles unless I needed them to be organized.
It is fantastic to share ideas and dreams in one place. It is like having conversations or discussions about a project without having to schedule face time. This way, he can edit and add to the trip book on his own time, whenever he thinks of something and have something to share. It is almost like having a live session without the pressure of both of us being at the same place at the same time. I will be able to view my trip book just like a giant notebook, but the only difference is that it is digital, and full of images, not to mention it is portable. I can take it anywhere. I can send it to my phone so that we can view it while on our trip. It fits in with my policy of traveling light but prepared.
Here are a couple of snap shots of my OneNote TripBook, but please go to this link: http://www.microsoft.com/office/onenote-vacationplanning/ to check-out my full and entire OneNote Ha Noi trip book, it will be available May 15th. On the left are the destinations, scroll down until you see Ha Noi, Viet Nam. I would love to know what you think and would be very disappointed if my regular readers miss viewing all my hard work. I will have the link on the top right hand side under my Self Sagacity Message Board for your convenience.
