How to Create a To-Do List in Microsoft OneNote

Creating checklists is a built-in capability of OneNote that you can use for all sorts of different things. Perhaps the most obvious use is a to do list, and in fact, the checkbox is actually called a To Do tag in OneNote.

Here are the four simple steps:
 

  1. First, create a New OneNote file or Open an existing one.
  2. From the Home tab, select To Do Tag under Tags How to Create a To-Do List in Microsoft OneNote
  3. A checkbox will appear, and you can begin creating your list. (Press Enter to automatically create a new line with a checkbox. If you don’t want the checkbox on the next line, press enter again.) How to Create a To-Do List in Microsoft OneNote
  4. When a task is completed, you can add a checkmark to the box by simply clicking on that box. (You also have the ability to add a star beside a task by using the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + 2.) How to Create a To-Do List in Microsoft OneNote

Congratulations. You can now create a To-Do List in OneNote! 

Note: You can use this tag throughout a OneNote page; it doesn’t have to be used only in a line-by-line list format. For example, you may take meeting notes and use the To Do tag to flag and track specific action items.
