A first look at OneNote 2010

If you missed the big Microsoft Office 2010 Technical Preview announcement last week, you might not have heard about some of the exciting new and improved features that are in store for OneNote 2010.

To get a sneak peek at some of these, check out this video, hosted by my colleague Ayça Yuksel:

For those of you who want more details, my colleague David Rasmussen, the Group Program Manager on the OneNote product team, has put together this list of new & improved features that are planned for OneNote 2010. Nice job, David!

New and shiny things always get a lot of attention, but don’t worry — we have no intention of ending our support for OneNote 2007, the version you’re using right now. Office 2010 is still a long way’s away, and there’s a lot left to share about the great features in OneNote 2007. Stay tuned for more detailed feature walkthroughs, more best practices, more quick tips that you can try out on your lunch break, and more content updates and free templates from Office Online.

Got trouble with a particular OneNote 2007 feature or task? Drop me a line with specifics and I’ll consider your question for a possible feature walkthrough in a future blog post. Fair warning: I get a lot of mail, so please understand if I’m unable to respond personally to your message. Even if you don’t hear back from me, I promise I read each and every message I get here. :)

Meanwhile, feel free to post your comments and reactions to our OneNote 2010 announcement. I hope you’re as excited about the planned improvements as I am!
