Microsoft has announced a series of enhancements for its OneNote app for iPhone, iPad and Mac users, designed to enhance the productivity benefits of the tool.
The key benefit touted by Microsoft was the ability for Mac users of OneNote to now access their OneDrive for Business data on the app.
“You can now open, sync and create personal or shared project or class notebooks on OneDrive for Business," the OneNote team said in a blog post.
Microsoft has also made it possible to put other file types into the OneNote app and view them natively from within the service (shown below).
“Now you can insert and view files, including PDF printouts, in your notebooks on Mac, iPad and iPhone. For example, on Mac you can drag and drop a PowerPoint deck or a Word document into your notes, as an attachment, and then view it in the OS built-in, Quick Look, or in the app itself.”
Microsoft has also added the ability to access locked documents and make changes, which could prove helpful for anyone working on sensitive corporate data.
“We received many requests for the ability to access password-protected sections created on OneNote for Windows,” it said.
“Simply navigate to the section and enter your password to access your private notes. Once you have reviewed or edited the notes you can easily lock the section, or after a few minutes it will lock automatically.”
Other features include the ability reorganise the order of documents in folders and improved copy and paste features, so data from web pages or other apps can be brought into OneNote.
