Whilst I am sure you are familiar with the email, calendar, contacts and tasks functionality of Outlook and the basic note taking features of OneNote - but did you know that these systems can be seamlessly integrated to create a powerful tool for managing any supplier or service provider relationship?
As a professional supply chain manager with over 30 years’ experience establishing, managing and developing relationships with countless 3rd Party Logistics (3PL) service providers and apparel manufacturing factories around the globe I have always struggled to find a single platform that could cater for all of the different tasks that I need to perform as part of my role.
I have tried integrating Outlook with Evernote and using Word and Excel to capture notes, action items and to assign tasks but by combining the functionality of Outlook with the OneNote add-in I have developed an intuitive and robust solution for managing both the day to day and the strategic requirements of any supplier relationship.
Although it has taken me many years to refine my supplier management process, this guide will provide you with a shortcut to a proven framework and a series of step by step instructions on how to set up and integrate both applications to create an effective solution for managing any supplier relationship.
The guide is based on a sample of the OneNote Notebook structure that I actually use for managing all of my 3rd Party Logistics (3PL) Service Providers relationships.
In this guide you will learn:
- How to activate the OneNote Add-in in Outlook
- How to create a One Note Notebook and add sections and pages
- How to add and link Outlook Contacts to OneNote sections and pages
- How to add and link Outlook Calendar entries (meetings) to OneNote sections and pages
- How to add, link, manage and assign Outlook Tasks from OneNote sections and pages
- How to add and link Outlook Emails to OneNote sections and pages
- How to add and link relevant files (reports, procedures, agreements, rate schedules) to OneNote sections and pages
- How to share notebook content with other stakeholders
In addition I have included three (3) bonus tips for maximizing the functionality of Outlook and OneNote
What is covered in this guide is not intended to provide a definitive guide to the full capabilities of each application but will highlight how Outlook and OneNote can be put to practical use in a real world situation - in this case - how supply chain professionals can take a familiar set of tools and manage any supplier or service provider relationship in a highly effective manner.
