In starting off the new school year, Microsoft has announced some new features for OneNote Online to enhance creativity, productivity, and collaboration.
- Insert from Camera – This feature is extremely popular in the Windows 10 OneNote App and has now been imported into OneNote Online. To use it, simply choose Insert -> Camera and the image will be placed on the current page.
- Emoji Keyboard – Students will love this new features. Simply go to Insert -> Emoji to see a small sample of the available emojis. To see the full emoji keyboard, click “More Emojis” from the bottom of that menu.
- Autocorrect – You have the ability to control the autocorrect functions in the Windows 10 and Office 2016 apps, but not in OneNote Online. Click Home -> Spelling -> Autocorrect and you can now edit your settings for autocorrect and auto format options.
- Copy a Link to Section – You had the ability to copy and paste a link to a page in OneNote Online to link between pages quickly and easily. Now you can right-click on a section and do the same. OneNote Online recognizes those links when pasting and will format them down to a much smaller hyperlink, rather than the huge amount of text actually copied.
These new features were announced on Oct. 3, 2018 and should be rolled out to 100% of OneNote Online users in the coming days or weeks.
