Plan With Me Digitally

Image
It's been a good while since I did a Plan With Me video and this is the first time planning digitally, so be kind.  I have been using OneNote 2016 for most of my planning lately and I change the layouts and designs almost weekly. I really liked my Happy Planner, but it was cumbersome to carry around. I also didn't like buying new stickers or taking the time to print and trim them out. With my digital planning, I'm not stuck to specific layout for 12 (or more) months at a time. Freedom!
This video is on a weekly Spring layout utilizing a table and other elements in OneNote. I love this program, but for designs like this, you will have to work around some of the limitations.

Things I Have Learned About OneNote

I have spent a couple of years looking for that planner peace and have not been able to stick with any certain planner for more than a couple of months. Either the planner is too bulky to carry around or it's too small to fit all the info (and my ever-growing sticker collection) or it doesn't allow me to easily add extra pages, etc. So, I have been working in Microsoft OneNote to create a dynamic Digital Bullet Journal and I have learned several things along the way.  #digibujo  
I will share some things with you that I have figured out with trial and error that might save you some hassle. This info applies to OneNote in general, so even if you don't plan or journal, stick with me.
First and foremost, OneNote has several versions.  Each will look different and have various functions.  The most robust and feature-rich is the OneNote 2016 program for the desktop. Then there's the OneNote "app" for Windows 10. It does not have all the functions of the 2016 progr…

Digital Planning with OneNote

Image
Over the past couple of years,  I have tried a few different paper planners of various sizes and layouts and I can't seem to find one that fits me over an entire year. And I have figured out why. My moods and my needs change throughout the year. I like the visual effects of a paper planner, but I didn't like lugging around a heavy planner with me.

So, being the techie that I am, I have started incorporating my Planner into Microsoft OneNote. Ta da!  Now my planner changes and grows with me and it's available on my phone, my laptop, my desktop or anywhere I might be where I can log in online. Events can be linked to pages with flyers about the events or to Facebook event listings and such. I can use my stylus to write or I can type in it, which is great because my handwriting is not going to win any flair awards.  I don't have to wait for stickers to come in the mail or try printing and cutting out ones I want to use. No need to have a cabinet full of half-used sticker …

Outlook Contacts: More Than Meets the Eye

Outlook Contacts: More Than Meets the EyePublished on Published onNovember 7, 2017 on LinkedIn If you've used Outlook for personal or work purposes, there's a chance that you haven't used it to it's full potential. Many people are used to filling in what they see on screen and never diving in to find other features. Let's explore. I like to look at the Business Card view when I am in Outlook and I'm a visual person, so I like to see more than just text on a card. Start a new contact card and you'll see Full Name... You can enter anything you want, including certifications, initials, nicknames, etc. The ... tells you that there are more options to come. Click it and you'll see separate blanks for Title, First, Middle, Last and Suffix. The first and last options have specific drop downs for consistency. Add the Company and Job Title name if needed. The File As... area is how you want to see the card listed in the Contact section. There are several option…
