Email NotesMicrosoft is winding OneNote 2016 down or is it?

Today I am continuing the OneNote 2016 topic I started a few weeks ago. I do however have to tell you that Microsoft is Sunsetting OneNote 2016. What does Sunsetting mean? Well it means that Microsoft are no longer developing or updating OneNote 2016 and it is no longer supplied as part of Office 2016 or Office 365.

Microsoft released a product called OneNote for Windows 10 which was included with every Windows 10 Laptop for free. This meant developing two versions of the product. So they took the decision to focus on just one product – OneNote for Windows 10 and I will write about that product in future newsletters.

If you have OneNote 2016 it will not go away – you can keep it and continue to use it, however it will no longer be updated and will not receive any new features.

There are some differences between the two versions with each having the same core functionality but also some differences.

So for now, I am writing about OneNote 2016 which is what I have used and have even written a book about! You can find my book on BookBoon HERE 

How to email your page of notes in OneNote 2016

When you have finished writing up your notes, whether they be just your musings , brainstorming or notes of a meeting, you can email the page directly from within the notebook.

On the Home Ribbon click – Email Page

Then fill in the email address etc and click Send

That’s it. Your recipient receives an email with your notes in the body and can do whatever is needed.

What do you think of this tip? Will it help? Leave a comment – I need to know and so does Veronica !

Introducing or Re-introducing Veronica

If you are new, you may not know about Veronica. She is called Virtual Veronica and is my virtual, Virtual Assistant. She features in lots of places and I use her account to demonstrate things often.

Veronica is a F.R.O.G and a VA which means she is: Fast Reliable Organised and Great!

Thanks for reading, and do tell me how useful you find my blog posts.

Next week I will be blogging about the OneNote app! This is the version that you get with Windows 10 and is part of Office 365. It works on Windows 10, Mac, your phone – (whichever operating system you use) and online too. Look out for this new series.

Addendum! – Since I wrote this post Microsoft has changed it’s mind about the Desktop OneNote 2016. From March it will once again be available to Office 2019 and Office 365 users. You can also download the full 2016 version from Microsoft. See this blog post about it

The session was well structured and the explanation was very clear. It was amazing how Shelley managed to squeeze so much info in just one hour and a half! Colin’s support and contributions were also very valuable, and so were “Virtual Veronica”‘s. Thank you for a most interesting and useful training session at the Miss Jones Virtual Summit!

I haven’t used PowerPoint in 20 years, this has really boosted my confidence.

Course is packed with so much valuable information in a easy-to-understand and follow language, even for a complete beginner. I can respect the fact that sometimes it’s very hard for an expert to break the information down to basics. but Shelley has done it brilliantly. I was sure that I knew quite a bit but Shelley has proven me wrong even at the very beginning of the basics of PowerPoint. Lessons are short and precise which allowed me to easily transfer the new skill into practice without being overwhelmed and to carry on adding on more with each lesson. I had so many ‘Aha!’ moments and for most of them I couldn’t believe I used to pay graphic designer to do it for me, now, thanks to Shelley, I am looking forward to creating, designing, converting my presentations all by myself!

Shelley was very thorough and knew a lot of tip’s for using Teams, thank you 🙂

Very informative, constantly getting everyone in the meeting involved, loved every bit of it!

Fantastic and informative training and great to see all of the exciting functions with Microsoft Teams.

Shelley was really clear in her teaching and went at a pace that was helpful to us. We covered all we needed to know to get us started, as a small team, using MS Teams. She was also very helpful in the run up to the session, with check in calls and ensuring our platform was set up correctly. I would highly recommend Shelley to anyone wanting to learn to navigate their way around MS Teams.

Shelley was approachable, easy to work with, and agile with answering questions to apply the session to my specific needs

Melissa Marshall – Present Your Science

A course on Outlook had been on the top of my list when Shelley asked VA’s what they wanted to learn.

It was a real case of ‘so that’s how you do it’ or ‘I never knew that’. I have to say that I learnt so many great tips it has definitely improved the way I work in Outlook and my inbox is looking colourful and organised and I can’t wait to share this knowledge with my clients.

A great course with lots of examples and step by step instructions. I can now confidently create infographics and as a bonus, I learnt a lot of new PowerPoint functionality that will enhance all my PowerPoint work and save me so much time.

Jessica Bailey – Integral Resource

I really like Shelley’s courses. She has a clear and easy to follow teaching style. In ‘How to Create Fillable Forms’ I’ve learned about the functions of the Developer ribbon which will mean I’ll be able to create a bespoke Returns Form for a client who has an online shop

Absolutely superb course, easy to follow and to refer back whilst putting it all into practice! I was unaware of the extent you can customise a presentation and it’s just made me want to know more – what’s next Shelley?

Denise Williams

I thought I had a pretty good grasp of Outlook until I did this course! In her videos, Shelley is clear and concise, and the language she uses is straightforward and jargon-free. Each module is broken down into manageable chunks, which helps keep your attention and means the course is easy to fit in around other commitments. I’ve created email templates and implemented rules that are already saving me time, and as all the other things I’ve learnt start to become second nature, the positive impact on my efficiency is fast becoming clear. This course has been incredibly beneficial and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to strengthen their skills and boost productivity.

I thought I knew Powerpoint really well, but I wanted to specifically learn how to use Powerpoint to create better infographics, easily and quickly. Shelley explains everything in a very logical and clear way, so I understood everything the first time I heard it. The most useful thing I learnt was that Powerpoint can do so much more than I thought it could. By also using the short cuts that Shelley showed me I am much quicker than I have ever been and I thought I was already quick!

Shelley Fishel of Tomorrow’s VA has a wealth of experience in Microsoft Office. I met her in person 2 years ago at the PA Show in London. I also saw her in action in a fab workshop and knew she was the whizz that everyone had told me she was. I have since bought a lifetime access to her HUB and all the courses in there are a MUST if you are a VA on a mission. The courses will give you confidence in all the Office 365 components and will catapult you to dizzy heights
