Imagine that you are writing a critical report for your manager when a great idea for an unrelated project occurs to you. With a single click, you open Quick Notes ”a miniature notes window ”where you record the idea, and within seconds, you return to your report. When your report is finished, you get caught up in other tasks and forget about your great idea. But the next time you open your OneNote notebook, your Quick Note is there to remind you!
In this exercise, you will record your manager s answers to questions you ve posed in a phone call. You plan to incorporate these notes with the others you ve already taken while preparing for The Garden Company s presence at an upcoming flower and garden show.
USE the Flower and Garden Show notebook in the practice file folder for this topic. This practice file is located in the My Documents\Microsoft Press\Office 2003 SBS\Mini folder and can also be accessed by clicking Start/All Programs/Microsoft Press/Microsoft Office System 2003 Step by Step .
