Most of us need to capture information for ourselves or others, and templates make particular sense for an on-the-go mobile application like Microsoft OneNote. You can capture all kinds of information quickly.

Microsoft offers a bunch of templates for OneNote but those featured in this slide show may not be available at this time. Microsoft's traditional site used to be the quickest way to find these free tools. Now, Microsoft has you apply templates from within the program interface. This means other programs than OneNote allow you to search for template names in the program interface, but unfortunately, OneNote does not yet. I will update this post if Microsoft does make templates available this way again.

In the meantime, check out Page Templates, which are also free.

For OneNote, for example, this may be possible in your version of OneNote by creating a new notebook then selecting Insert - Page Templates.

Landscape Planner Template for Microsoft OneNote

Using the Landscape Planner Template for OneNote could make you feel like you're designing your slice of nature with the best of them.

Design away using tabbed screens for plant costs, plant pictures, work plans, and yard layout.

This would, of course, work really well for a garden or outdoor patio décor design.

Alternatively, I have used it for a party design — instead of placing plants, I ignored the background graphic and placed food and people.

This template is not available at this time but may be in the future, so I hope to be able to link to it in the future.

Interviewing or Comparative Shopping for Microsoft OneNote

Interviewing can take a huge chunk out of your productivity schedule, and even more so if you have to type up your hand-written notes afterward.

Interviewing while typing directly into the keyboard can be distracting and impersonal. Instead, consider taking notes on your mobile device, the same way you might on a pad of paper. This Interviewing Template for OneNote will help you digitally capture the essential information on each candidate.

This is not just for hiring managers. Consider the details we compare as we try to be savvy consumers — day care facilities, doctors, lawyers, education professionals, you name it. Think of this template as a way to capture strengths and weaknesses of different options you may be checking out.

This template is not available at this time but may be in the future, so I hope to be able to link to it in the future.

These templates are not available at this time but may be in the future, so I hope to be able to link to them in the future.

Research Paper Citations for Microsoft OneNote

OneNote has several student-centered templates for taking notes and organizing your study habits.
