Family Notebook Members Permissions

That said, if you are wondering what is new about it, then here is the deal. First, it instantly adds all the members of your family and gives edit permission. Second, you get a pre-defined template which makes your job lot easier. Many a time you spend a lot of time to get a template ready, but with this, its all set.

You can always add more members to this manually if you are planning a mega trip.

Its a great feature from Microsoft for a family who can use OneNote together. You can combine Office Lens and OneNote Clipper. While Office Lens can take snapshots of the bills and add it directly here, OneNote Clipper can be used to collect data from a various website for your travel. An easy way to create a list of all the places you plan to visit.

That said, I would have loved if more templates were available. I would love to see templates on Budget, Restaurant and takeout menus, Medical records and so on. What do you think about it?
