Onenote Calendar and clipping tool

I use Onenote extensively at work and love the ability to take freeform notes in meetings and organize stuff into the separate folders. One of the things I use it with are the various projects that I’m running in the office and these notebooks are shared amongst the project participants so we all are working off of one realtime document. This has the advantage that most of the data is in one place and we have a historical record but it is hard to tell what documents have been changed recently and with the proliferation of notebooks, it’s hard to remember which notebook contains a particular document that I worked on last Tuesday for example.
Previously I was using a toolbar icon that shows me the notebooks changed in the last 7 and last 14 days of use. This was really useful, but recently I stumbled across Omer Atay’s Onetastic addin. As the name suggests, this is really good addin (should have been in the shipped product) that enables you to tidy up the print to onenote output AND also has a built in calendar display option that shows you the documents that have been changed on the day, week or month that you select. The Calendar option is also available as a standalone application, but you might as well have the web clipping (which also contains a cropping tool too) add in too.
Highly recommended – especially if you share your OneNotes with other people or you are not that organized in filing your documents 😉
Note this does require OneNote2010 – but you are on that already right?
