Share content from other apps with OneNote for iPhone or iPad

By sharing content from other apps to OneNote, you can easily clip content from web pages, send formatted text or file attachments, or save photos to your notebook for later.

To use this feature:

  • Your device must be running iOS 8 or later.

  • You must be signed into OneNote and have at least one notebook open.

  • You must enable OneNote on the sharing menu.

Do the following:

  1. Sign in to OneNote and open at least one of your notebooks.

  2. Tap the Share menu in any app from which you want to share content (for example, while looking at a picture in the Photos app).

  3. Tap More to display the Activities list.

  4. Under Activities, tap the slider next to OneNote to enable sharing.

To share an item to OneNote, do the following:

  1. In the app from which you want to share content, tap the Share menu

  2. Tap OneNote.

  3. Select where you want to store your content.

  4. Add a note (optional), and then tap Send.

Although sharing to OneNote from other apps can be done offline, your notebook must be synced to OneDrive at least once after sharing, otherwise the content will be not be available on your computer or other devices that use the same notebook.

Tip: In iOS 8, you can reorder the icons of apps that you frequently use for sharing. To move OneNote to the front of the list, tap and hold the OneNote icon, and then drag it to the position you want.
