Open a OneNote for Android notebook from a SharePoint site

If you have trouble opening a notebook from a SharePoint site on your Android phone, it could be because of any of the following reasons:

  • You might be using the notebook’s short URL, which is not supported on Android phones. You can only open notebooks showing a complete SharePoint URL, which will look similar to this:

    <onenote:http://adatum.contoso.com/notebook name/>

    Tip:  If you don’t have the complete URL, try opening the notebook from a non-Android device.

  • You are accessing a notebook that is stored on an on-premises SharePoint server. OneNote for Android currently does not support opening notebooks on such servers. However, you can open notebooks that are available on SharePoint Online.
