Outlook for Mac now supports sending items to OneNote in Insider Fast

With the release of 16.7 (171029), we are finally addressing one of the top requested features in our UserVoice site - Mac users are getting the ability to send their emails and meetings to OneNote! The Send to OneNote button allows you to select any notebook/section across all your accounts, allowing you to archive and access your Outlook content where and when you want it.

 

We are really excited to release this feature to our loyal fans in Insider Fast, and plan on rolling it out to everyone soon.

 

Importantly, this feature will be available to Office 365 subscribers only.

 

How do I use this feature?

  1. When viewing an email or meeting, click on the OneNote icon in the ribbon to get started -

  3. Select the notebook and section you want to send your Outlook item to -

    (NOTE: you can also change the account that you would like to send to in this dialog)
  4. And voila! Your item has now been sent to OneNote. You can use the link in this dialog to open it up in OneNote.

Known Issues

  • The sent date may not respect your current time zone
  • Plain text emails may have missing / malformed characters
  • Sending an email or meeting to a password protected section is not currently supported
  • ‘To’ and ‘From’ email addresses in the page header may include a leading ‘<’ character

Problems or Suggestions?

We value your feedback, if you have any issues or bugs to report, please do so by contacting our in-app support (Help > Contact Support)

 

If you would like to see enhancements and additions to this feature, (or Mac Outlook as a whole), please vote for the idea on our UserVoice site (Help > Suggest a Feature)

Great job guys - working well!

Excellent!

I'm a 365 subscriber, and I just switched to the fast track release specifically for this feature, but I'm not seeing the new button.  Is there anything special I need to do to enable it?

 

Thanks

I have the same issue of not seeing the new OneNote button.  I subscribe to Office 365 Home.

 

---> now I see it after rebooting, half way along the Home ribbon.  Looks good!

I still don't see it even after rebooting.  Could it be conflicting with either WebEx integration or the Wunderlist addon?

I see the feature, but when I want to send a meeting to OneNote to create meeting notes I always get the error "Your meeting couldn't be sent. One or more of the meetings you selected might be damaged. Try again with a different selection." 

Done that, tried to create meetings notes from meetings I created as well as meetings sent from others. Does not work at all. I do not get any more information on the error.

OneNote is running, I am logged in and the notebooks are opened. 

All of a sudden, the new OneNote button is showing up for me in Outlook.  However, when I press it to send an email to OneNote I get the error: "Your email couldn't be sent.  We're sorry.  Please try again later."  I am not prompted for an account or a notebook.

i'm using Outlook for Mac and downloaded the latest build, 16.8 (171101).  However, once downloaded and installed thru the Auto Updater, I'm still using the older version.  What am i missing here on how to now update to 16.8 (171101).   Thanks in advance for the insight... 

Frequent Contributor

This is great news.  However, seeing the same problem as Benjamin, so will open a ticket.

Am I missing something here? This is supposed to add functionality to send your Meeting Notes to OneNote, which is great, but according to my understanding the MacOS version of Outlook doesn't even have the Meeting Notes feature. What is the use case for this?

It should be available for sending both meetings and email to OneNote.  The part I'm having problems with is the second - I have no need to send meeting notes to OneNote.

looking to know when this is releasing to the public.  I am running Version Build 15.40 for Office365 on MacOS High Sierra 10.13.1.  Updater states I'm current.  Please advise.

Occasional Visitor

Im a 365 subscriber, am logged into my account, have installed version 16.8 (171205)

I cannot get the button to appear - I've rebooted and tried all the suggestions - nothing.

Would love to be able to use this feature.

 

I've reported this using the contact support button but have not received a response.

 

Occasional Visitor

I'm with Geoff. How do I get this feature when I've got v.16.8?

 

Thanks!

Hi there,

 

i see the button, but as soon as a click it an new window with an error message appears and i can't log out to try it again. So this one doesn't work at all. I'm using version 16.10.

Bildschirmfoto 2018-01-27 um 12.37.23.pngthis one appeared some days later

 

Bildschirmfoto 2018-01-21 um 19.11.59.pngthis one is older

Working for me on the latest build. Was an issue for many preview builds and after submitting many log reports it’s finally fixed. 

Occasional Visitor

Thx Graham, so i'll keep sending log reports ;-) hoping that it will be fixed.

I can say that the MSFT support is fast and quick responding.

I am using 16.10 and no longer have the onenote button at all. I did see it for a short time awhile ago (not sure what version it went away in)

Occasional Visitor

Same on my side: No Button on a Ribbon

 

Outlook: 16.10 (180210)

OneNote: 16.10 (180210)

 

Maybe the sequence of installation matters?

 

please assist!

Visitor

Same here.  I used to see the button but in the latest version 16.11 it's gone.

Frequent Contributor

Working here fine on Outlook 16.11 (180220) build.

Occasional Visitor

I have the same Error Code 10013 problem. Any news/tips/hints on that? Have tried the log out/in mentioned above to no avail.

 

For people not seeing the Send to OneNote button: Are you sure that you are on the Office Insider *Fast*? The button didn't appear to me on Insider Slow builds.

Occasional Visitor

I also don't see the One Note icon on the ribbon and I'm running 16.12 (180308) from the Office Insider (Fast) program.  It's frustrating because this is one of the requested features that I voted for and am really looking forward to.  Is there some kind of A/B test that only a subset of users are receiving the feature, even if we've signed up for Insider (Fast)?

Occasional Visitor

I also don't see the One Note icon on the ribbon and I'm running 16.12 (180318) from the Office Insider (Fast) program. It was there last week and this week its gone?  I've taken the time to send logs and chat the issue with Narcis L from Outlook for Mac support and have yet to get an answer on how to Restore the button.  Graham Walsh,  you shared that yours work fine.  Any special tips.

Hey, I'm office 365 on mac. Installed Outlook for MAC. But the share to OneNote icon is not there. What's the issue here? Thanks.

I was finally able to get my Send to OneNote Icon get added back to my MS-Outlook Ribbon via some help from Microsoft Help.   Give this a try.   Thanks.

 

Please use this tool https://github.com/pbowden-msft/FlightReset in order to reset the configuration by following these steps:

1. Download the file by click-ing on the green button on the right “Clone or download”

2. Choose “Download ZIP”

3. Unzip the file

4. Double click on the file “FlightReset”

5. If the file is not opening click right (if you are using a mouse) or click using 2 fingers (if you are using Mac mousepad) on the selected “Open”

Too bad it still did not work for me :(

Frequent Contributor

Sorry for the late reply Curtis. There was nothing special i needed to do. Just running the fast insider builds. I’m also on Mac OS beta but that shouldn’t make a difference I would have though.

@Curtis Gilbert  It works! Thank you!

 Hi Running 16.11 and no onenote button......suggestions?

Occasional Visitor

Hi,

it's running more or less. I can send objects to One Note but on ly to the regarding main page and not to sub pages. That works in Outlook for Windows.

I think there is some work to do and room for improvement.

Occasional Visitor

I'm on 16.11 (180311) and not seeing the button...

I get the following error when trying to add a new location to the 'Choose a location' list. Please help!

This is great - but absolutely no integration with tasks - onenote for mac doesn't even allow tasks to be sorted or searched ( kinda pointless to have them if you cant search for them )  - they should integrate with outlook and/or planner - otherwise why have them!

New Contributor

Don't seem to get the OneNote button even if I have Outlook 16.14 (180507) fast update. Also ran the FlightReset with no success.

 

Contacted the support. Let's see what happens... 

Occasional Visitor

Talk about feeling like a second-class citizen. How an MS claim Office 365 has feature parity when we're missing a key feature like this for so long? It's even worse if the feature comes and goes between releases. I'm trying to make a case for my company to move more of the staff to the Mac and we're dealing with things like this? 75% of our staff push meeting notes to OneNote and we can't do that from Outlook on the Mac?

 

This is a pain point for me on a personal level and an example of MS dropping the ball on the Mac release.  As these comments prove, this has been a long-standing issue.  And FWIW, the FlightReset didn't fix the problem in my case.
