The Innovator's Guide to Modern Note Taking
By Microsoft | 7/9/2017

Today, we clunk away at a keyboard and end up with half a gigabyte of meeting minutes on our hard drive that we’ll never read again to go with the two dozen scribbled receipts we keep shoved in the glove box. That chaos can be tamed. With the right tools and attitude, we can capitalise on this familiar tool to boost productivity and innovation. Modern note taking takes the familiar scrawl of handwritten notes and pairs it with the sharing and storage capabilities of the Digital Age.

In addition, modern note taking gives you opportunities to visualise ideas in ways you never have before, expanding the innovative space and transforming the way you create. Together, this allows a method of note taking that’s easy to organise, share, save and access while improving retention, creativity and collaboration.

Take the first step to excellence with modern note taking.
