Onenote 360


If you’ve adopted OneNote as your note-taking program of choice, you’ll probably want to share or send a Notebook at some point. Luckily, OneNote makes this quite easy. I’ll note that the instructions below also apply to individual Sections in Notebooks! There is also a difference between sharing and sending–when you share a Notebook, you’re sharing a ‘living’ document that will always be up-to-date, while sending a notebook just sends a copy of a specific file.

Share a Notebook

Microsoft OneNote with a Microsoft 365 subscription is the latest version of OneNote. Previous versions include OneNote 2016, OneNote 2013, and OneNote 2010. Availability of mobile apps varies by country/region. Follow Microsoft 365. While you can purchase OneNote as part of a subscription to Microsoft 360, OneNote is also available for free. The free version is called OneNote 2016 and is the version that initially appeared. Time for another #TATips video from Phil, this time for OneNote!

Sharing a Notebook (or Section) allows you to share a ‘living’ document with people– depending on the permissions you set, users can either view or edit the document. To share a Notebook:
Right-click the Notebook and select “Share This Notebook”:
On the next screen, enter the name or address of the people you’d like to share the document with. You can set their permissions to either “Can edit” or “Can view” (this is easy to change later). Click Share when finished:

Send a Notebook (or Section, or Page)

To email a copy of a Notebook, we actually need to export it first. Select the Notebook you need (same as above), but this time, click on File:
Select Page, Section, or Notebook depending on your needs. I recommend choosing OneNote Package as the file type unless you know it won’t be used in OneNote:
Include it as an attachment in an email, and that’s it!

In previous post, we compare Notion to Evernote and the web clipper and document scanner features make Evernote standout. Then, how about making a comparison between Evernote and OneNote? In this Evernote vs OneNote post, we compare these two popular note-taking apps in note taking, web clipping, team work, storage and pricing to see which one of them will improve your productivity.

Evernote vs OneNote: Note Taking

The whole point of a note-taking app is simplicity and organization. Without it, you’re better off handwriting all your notes in a book!

OneNote and Evernote are available for all the major desktop and mobile OSes, they can each sync your notes to all of your devices and the web, and both promise to be the only note-taking app you need.

Onenote Class Office 360

Microsoft OneNote features the traditional Microsoft Office Ribbon that provides you with many features to create, edit, view, and organize notes. While creating notes, you can add text, images, tables, videos, audio files, spreadsheets, links, and more to your notes. This helps you create content-rich notes and keep all media associated with them in one place.

Evernote includes most of the same note-creation features, like drawing and editing tools, but doesn’t provide some OneNote features like reviewing other users’ edits. Also, unless you tag your notes, they will keep piling up in an unorganized manner, and it will be difficult to search for them later.

Evernote vs OneNote: Web Clipping

Different from Notion, both Evernote and OneNote have a web clipper.

OneNote offers a browser add-on called the OneNote Web Clipper for Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox. Note that you need to sign in to the extension with a Microsoft account to use it. Using this clipper, you can grab a screenshot of a webpage or other content.

Evernote’s web-clipping tool is exemplary. The tool runs as a browser add-on for Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Safari, and Opera.

Evernote vs OneNote: OCR

Onenote sign in

Evernote and OneNote have optical character recognition, meaning they can read text contained in images or other static documents, such as PDFs. When it comes down to leveraging OCR, you can do more with OneNote than with Evernote.

OneNote makes all the text in images searchable, and it lets you extract the text from images and other supported files so that you can paste it elsewhere and edit it.

Evernote doesn’t have the ability to extract text from images, but it does search the text found in uploaded images, PDFs, and Office documents.

Evernote vs OneNote: Team Work

Do you have a team to delegate with on a project? we’ll take a look at sharing notes with others and co-editing options.

Evernote has a handful of features that support collaboration. Among them, you can share any notebook by right-clicking on it and selecting “share notebook.” Input the email addresses of those with whom you want to share your notebook and select the type of access permissions you want to grant them: view, edit or edit and invite. Plus, you can generate note links, which will let anybody view a note in a browser. Or if you prefer, you can just email a note to someone straight from within the app. Finally, Evernote has a handy chat feature that can be used to discuss notes.

Like Evernote, you can share any notebook in OneNote by clicking the share icon near the top-right side of the app, then inputting the email addresses of those with whom you want to share. View or edit permissions can be granted. However, there’s no chat option like you get with Evernote and no option to comment on notes within the app.

Evernote vs OneNote: Storage and Pricing

Last but not least, is the pricing difference between them.

The free version of OneNote offers up to 5 GB of cloud storage, which is across all the software of each OneDrive account. This 5gb will be shared across the online Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and every other software solution including OneNote of course. After that, you will have to subscribe to the pro plan. Microsoft’s basic plan, which offers 50GB of OneDrive storage, costs just $1.99 per month or $23.88 annually. For $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year, you get 1,000GB of storage and access to Office 365 Personal edition.

The basic version of Evernote is free, but it limits you to adding 60MB of new notes a month, lets you sync between only two devices, and doesn’t include advanced features. Evernote has three paid plans, Basic, Premium ($7.99), and Business ($14.99). Advanced features that help you convert your notes to presentations, search for content in inserted attachments or PDF files in notes, and more are available in the Evernote Premium and Evernote Business versions. Premium accounts get 10GB per month. Business accounts get 20GB per month plus an additional 2GB per person per month.

Evernote vs OneNote: Which Improves Your Productivity Better


Clearly, it is not easy to choose one in Evernote Vs OneNote. They are very good and have benefits of their own that the other one does not provide.

If you’re primarily looking for a tool that lets you easily capture, organize and find content from the web, you’ll want Evernote, because its tools for doing that are exemplary. If you instead want to create notes from scratch and have them in well-organized notebooks, or if you’re a heavy Office 365 user, OneNote is the way to go.
