Previous iterations of the OneNote strategy recommendations used a section named ‘Inbox’. This section was the entry point for all notes coming into the OneNote system. Actually, OneNote already has such an entry point: Quick Notes.
Quick Notes is a default section in OneNote, with special features. For instance, ⊞ Win+N creates a new note located in Quick Notes. So, let’s go with the flow. ALL new notes should start in Quick Notes. Whenever you start taking notes, either use the ⊞ Win+N combination or click Add Page within the Quick Notes section. Once you have finished with the note, move it to the appropriate location.
