Synching OneNote/Outlook?

Postby Royal » Fri May 28, 2010 11:31 am

This is sort of a tech question, but relevant for law students. Let's say you use OneNote to take notes in class on your laptop, and also use your Outlook calendar to organize due dates. Is there an easy way to synch your notes from OneNote and your calendar from Outlook with your home computer?

Are your trying to run two Outlooks, one on your laptop and one on your desktop and keep them in synch? If yes, then no, not in 2007, without a sharepoint sever/exchange sever or 3rd party software (not sure about 2010 though). You can use Outlook to sych to your google calander and get that on the laptop. Geting e-mail, due dates and such between OneNote and Outlook on the same computer is very easy though. But MS no likley you trying to sycnh 2 outlooks w/o a sharepoint or exchange server.

OneNote 2010 Improved Features

Postby RUQRU » Sun May 30, 2010 5:25 pm

Just got MS Office Professional 2010 and the new version of OneNote has many improvements. You can see a summary here:

OneNote 2010 has the updated ribbon interface.

Yeah i've been trying to experiment with different methods of syncing to prepare for school as well. Like what's been said, you're going to need some sort of sharepoint to sync. I'm trying out Windows Live Mesh, it's in beta currently and while free you're going to need a Windows Live ID. It combines syncing with a storage space as well, I think 5 GB or so as well as a 2000 file limit IIRC. Should be sufficient if you're going to be syncing documents, but I don't know about how often you receive mail. Windows LiveSync will synchronize your files, but requires both units to be online as well as having LiveSync running whereas Live Mesh, having an online storage component, will allow synchronization to occur even if a unit is offline.

OneNote 2010 has the updated ribbon interface.


i got the beta a few days ago, it's pretty funky i think it was saying something that it (the beta) runs through accessing the program online and it told me if i wanted the program on my hard drive i would need to download the business/professional beta which has a 60 day expiration date on it.

when using Onenote, for it's online sharing method it seems to use Windows Sky Drive (which is a third option aside from Live Mesh and LiveSync) however it doesn't have any auto syncing features it's more of a storage space. i'm guessing that the office 2010 applications will perform the sync for you. Sky Drive has a 20 GB limit with a 50 MB cap on a single file.

I have not used Sky Drive. I am syncing my desktop and laptop over my own network without any problems. I never used the beta so I don't know if there are any differences with the final release product. I do like that Microsoft finally normalized the interface across all applications. They got rid of the stupid globe thing from Office 2007 and re-instituted the File menu with a new feature called "Backstage" that has all the program settings.

Just to be clear...once you setup synching in OneNote it is automagic. That is when my laptop logs onto my network OneNote automatically syncs up with my desktop.
