OneNote’s Best Organization Feature Is Hidden in Plain Sight
We’ve discussed OneNote tags and how they can help you organize your notes, but there’s another useful feature hiding in the user interface. Section Groups help you keep your sections in order.
To create a section group, just open a notebook in OneNote and right-click on the top bar where the section tabs are. Choose New Section Group and give it a name, and you’ve created a group! You can drag and drop an existing tab onto the section group name to add it to the group, or right-click and choose New section to create one inside the group.
When you do so, all the pages in a section come along with it, so you don’t lose any of your setup. Click on the group name to open it — you’ll notice its sections listed along the top. When you’re ready to go back, just click the green arrow icon to the left of the section tabs to move up a level. If you want to get really crafty, you can even create a group inside a group!
Section groups are a great way to keep everything organized. Without them, you might be tempted to break larger notebooks into smaller ones, but that just adds more noise.
