To-do lists can be a great way to make sure you’re making progress on daily tasks. Setting up a to-do list in Microsoft OneNote is easy and offers several advantages over pen and paper.
OneNote is available on all your devices and lets you find important tasks quickly. If you mark the agenda, OneNote compiles all the marked notes for easy access, search, and printout. That’s just one basic benefit. We’ll show you some easier tips for creating actionable lists in OneNote to get your work done on time.
Use Shortcuts to Create Checklists as Breeze
Just highlight some text and press Ctrl + 1 to pair it with a checkbox. You can combine this shortcut with some other tags too. Press Ctrl + 2 to add a star, Ctrl + 3 to add a question mark, and more.
If a preset tag doesn’t meet your needs, you can assign a custom tag and assign it with a keyboard shortcut. You don’t have to search for or click through a long menu of tags.
In OneNote Desktop 2016, click the Home tab, and select Customize Tags. From the dialog box that appears, move your tag up in the list to one of the top nine. OneNote for Windows 10 lets you create custom tags but doesn’t allow you to modify existing tags.
Embed Your Files in OneNote
In OneNote for Windows 10, go to Settings > Options and then toggle the Store attachment in cloud option. When you attach a file on a OneNote page, it uploads the file to OneDrive and inserts a referensi to that file. In the case of a Word document, OneNote will show a live preview of the Office document. You can also see changes made to files in real time.
For all other document types, the attachment will display a referensi. If the document is a PDF, you can annotate your document directly on OneDrive, and your changes will be synced to OneNote.
Once you’ve pinned the file, create a to-do list and start working on your document. You’ll never forget things, and the latest copy will always be in OneNote.
Create a Kanban Board in OneNote
Initially, we will create three columns Project, Task, and Priority. Think of the table as a central point for all your tasks. Design it in a way that makes sense to you. Open a new page and name it “My Board.”

Type in the first column, hit tab, and turn it into a table. Type in the next column and repeat the steps. Repeat these steps until you have created three To Do, This Week, and Archive tables.
Once you have completed the task, hover your mouse over the left of the line to reveal the anchor. With your mouse, click and drag rows between tables. You can also add attachments to column cells and insert links to different pages for more details on assignments.

Visually organize tasks and to-dos, then drag and drop tasks into other columns. The pro version of this template lets you customize the fields and remove the company logo.
Turning To Do Lists into Pages
OneNote will instantly create a new blank page in the current section. Each page will have item content as its page title. At the same time, the list of items is converted to internal links, pointing to the appropriate page. Note that this feature only appears on the list context menu.
Experiment with Display Options
You can dock the OneNote window so it sits on top of all the other apps. Click the View tab and select Dock to Desktop. While you’re working on a task in another app, you can quickly glance back and forth between two open windows, copy and paste links to your tasks, and more.
Or, you can use a custom desktop shortcut to directly start OneNote in docked mode. Just add “/docked” to “ONENOTE.EXE.” The path will look like
C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficerootOffice16ONENOTE.EXE/anchored
Depending on the drive and folder where Microsoft Office 2016 is installed, you may have to change the path. “Office 2016” becomes “Office15” if you’re using Office 2013. As of now, OneNote for Windows 10 doesn’t have this feature.
Filter Your Agenda on the Summary Page
If you want to know the remaining tasks, check Show only unchecked items. To search within a specific section, notebook, or all notebooks, click the Search drop-down arrow and select where you want to search for tags.
