OneNote’s Template feature can be very handy for repetitive Checklists and Meeting Minutes. They can also be used to add background pictures and dress up your existing pages.
Jeff created a PowerToy to help manage your templates, since it can be somewhat cumbersome using the built-in workflow. It does not include the existing installed templates by default, but you probably don’t want the clutter of 100+ templates anyways.
Example usage for a Deacon’s Meeting…
- Use the "Formal Meeting Notes", add all possible attendees, insert church logo, save as Template.
- At start of meeting, just create a new page and insert your template. Remove non-attendees.
- At end of meeting, do a Save As… PDF.
- Next Meeting, just copy over any open issues or agenda items
Another Example for Daily To Do List…
- Create a page from one of the Planners.
- Customize to your workflow.
- Add links to common notebooks, shortcuts, and repetitive tasks.
- Save as New Template using PowerToy
