If you take meeting notes in OneNote it would be great if the next steps you agree on during the meeting could end up as to-do tasks in your to-do list automatically — without you having to remember to add them there after the meeting, wouldn’t you say?
It is actually entirely possible — in two ways at that!
Copy the tasks you typed in OneNote during the meeting
A little more than a week ago, Samuel Sjunnesson told me that he had found that you can copy a list in OneNote and paste it into To-Do to create to-do tasks.
That sounded great, since I have missed the feature in OneNote that made it possible to flag a line in OneNote to create tasks in Outlook ever since it disappeared in 2016. So, I made a video about that:
Flagged text in OneNote creates a synced task in Microsoft To-Do
Right after I had published this video, Åsa Hovrell and Rob Zakaria both told me that the feature has reappeared. Brilliant!
Therefore, the first video got a sequel:
Are there more smart features?
What other useable features in OneNote that I have missed have you found? Tell me! (Maybe I get to thank you in another, future video! 😉)
