Use the OneNote feed in Outlook on the web

The OneNote feed conveniently combines your notes from different apps — including Samsung Notes, Sticky Notes, and OneNote. The feed is currently available in Outlook on the web and Outlook.com.

Note: The OneNote feed automatically syncs all of the notes that are associated with the same Microsoft account (or your work or school account) that you are using with Outlook. If you use Samsung Notes on your mobile device and want to include those notes in the OneNote feed, see Sync Samsung Notes to your OneNote feed.

Turn on the OneNote feed in Outlook on the web

Do the following:

  1. If necessary, sign into Outlook on the web with the same account that you use for syncing your notes.

  2. In Outlook on the web, click the OneNote feed icon on the main Outlook toolbar near the upper right side of your browser.

    When the task pane opens, you’ll see your most recently edited notes for your current account. In your feed, you’ll also find your OneNote pages and sticky notes, if you have any. If you use Samsung Notes on your mobile device and want to include those notes in the OneNote feed, see Sync Samsung Notes to your OneNote feed.
