At first glance, some of these features seem like other Office 365 apps. But each tool is meant to serve a different purpose. While Word tends to be used for creating formal documents, the main purpose for Microsoft OneNote is to give coworkers a place to collaborate and share ideas in a more casual format. And while powerful on its own, when paired with other tools, it can improve communication within your company. For example, Microsoft OneNote can be used while on Teams to make sure everyone is on the same page and no one misses any information mentioned in your meetings.


While each Office 365 app has its own purpose, when used together, it can increase productivity in your workplace. Microsoft OneNote adds another way to bring efficient communication to your office and personal organization to every employee.
