Google Keep is a useful organizational tool for creating quick notes and reminders that can be accessed through any device (computer, tablet, phone, etc.) with the app. The instructions and images below demonstrates Google Keep through a cellphone.
On the main menu located at the bottom of the front page, there are options on how you can create your note.
- “Take a note”: opens up a blank text box where you can type in a note.
- List icon: creates a note that features a check list
- Microphone: allows you to verbally record a note
- Google Keep will save the voice recording and transcribe the speech into text
- Camera: allows you to take a photo as a note
- To set a notification for the note, simply press the “Remind me” button.
- The top menu features options to further customize your notes so you can sort them from other notes
- Palette icon: changes the colour of the note
- Label icon: add tags to your note so that it can appear when you search up the tagged keywords
- Archives: allows you to save notes that may not be relevant anymore but you would like to keep as a reference
- More options (the three dots): opens up a drop down menu of more options including inserting a photo and deleting the note.
