  3. In the Meeting Notes dialog box, do one of the following:

    • To share your meeting notes with others, choose Share notes with the meeting.

    • To take notes for yourself only, choose Take notes on your own.

  4. In the Select Location in OneNote dialog box, choose a section for the new notes and click OK.

    The page OneNote now creates is linked to your Outlook appointment, so you can always keep the meeting details and your notes from the meeting together in one place.

Take notes in Skype for Business

  1. In Skype for Business, send an instant message, start an audio or video call, or choose Meet Now on the Options drop-down to initiate an online meeting with someone.
