OneNote Now Works With Office File Attachments a Lot Better Than Before

Posted on October 18, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Office 365, OneDrive with 11 Comments

Microsoft is rolling out a number of improvements for OneNote across platforms this month.

One of the major new features coming to OneNote is Cloud Attachments. It’s a clever new feature that makes sure your documents and notes always stay up to date. When you save files, like a Word document, on OneDrive and attach it onto a OneNote notebook, it will display a live preview of the Office document. It will even display any changes in real time, and it will automatically update as you update the file through OneDrive. It’s pretty neat.

The feature will arrive first on OneNote for Windows 10 and Mac in the coming weeks. Both the platforms are also getting support for searching tags in the coming weeks to make finding all your different notes a lot easier.

And for those using OneNote Online, Microsoft is adding the ability to configure AutoCorrect options, as well as introducing a new built-in Emoji keyboard, ability to insert pictures from your camera, and the ability to copy/share links to the different section in your notes.

Microsoft has been making significant improvements to OneNote in recent times, mostly on Windows 10 and Mac. The app is already really powerful, and it just keeps getting better. OneNote is one of the best note-taking apps right now — in fact, I have seen so many students in my university using this app to take notes,  I was actually really surprised.
