GTD with OneNote: Set Up
To implement GTD with OneNote I first set up a new notebook as below:
Create a new OneNote notebook.
Set up a section in this notebook called TODAY and make a desktop shortcut to this section - see David Rasmussen's Blog on how to do this.
Now use Tools->Options->send to Onenote to set the default section for sending webnotes and printouts to to the TODAY section you have just set up.
Now use Tools->Options->save to set the default section for unfiled notes to the TODAY section.
Set up a Section in OneNote for the current month.
Set up a Section in OneNote as a monthly archive.
Set up a Section in OneNote for Active Projects..
Set up a Section in OneNote for Archived Projects.
Set up a Section in OneNote for support files.
Set up Tags with Status and Contexts - here are the ones I use..
Finally use View-> Tags Toolbar to make these contexts visible in a toolbar
So the notebook is set up - next post will be on stage 1 of the GTD process - collect
