We told you Office Web Apps went live this week. But what we didn’t write about yet is that yesterday a part of the Office family that was missing got added: OneNote. Yes, that’s right there’s also a OneNote Web App now.
Like its Word, Excel, and PowerPoint counterparts, the OneNote Web App extends your Microsoft Office 2010 experience to the Web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari). You can use the OneNote Web App with a free Windows Live (a.k.a. SkyDrive) account or on a SharePoint 2010 site in your organization.
If you want to use the OneNote Web App together with the OneNote 2010 rich client on your computer, you must be running one of the following released versions of OneNote 2010:
- Microsoft OneNote 2010 (standalone version)
- Microsoft Office Home & Student 2010
- Microsoft Office Home & Business 2010
- Microsoft Office Professional 2010
- Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 (available only via volume licensing)
- Microsoft Office Enterprise 2010 (available only via volume licensing)
If you are currently running the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, you won’t be able to use your online notebooks in the OneNote 2010 Beta client by using the Open in OneNote command on the OneNote Web App ribbon. However, you’ll be able to try out these integration features by downloading the free OneNote 2010 trial version when it becomes available (stay tuned for an announcement next week).
To help you get started the team has pulled together some documentation. We suggest you start out with these 3:
- Introduction to the OneNote Web App
- OneNote Web App at a glance
- Keyboard shortcuts in the OneNote Web App
You can find even more links to documentation in the Microsoft Office team’s blog post. Also feel free to leave your feedback there.
