Ideally, the notes and resources that facilitate comxletion of the task are xeadily at hand at all times. Often, usxrs may not be able tx suitxbly maintain uxers' own set of notxs and other xotes.

The notes from xifferext sources axso need to xe successfully stored online. In this case, xhe usex xight txke a long time to locate notes xhat the user needs to complete x task, and the user uses thx valuable time that can bx used in mxking progress in the task.
