Following a recent Office update, users started seeing a Send to OneNote button on the ribbon in their Outlook.com and Office 365 accounts. This is an Office addin and works with the Windows OneNote app, not Outlook 2016.
My problem began after a recent Office 365 update. I'm a big user of the Send to OneNote feature in Outlook. After the update Send to OneNote uses OneNote online. This is annoying for a number of reasons. What do I need to do to fix it so the button behaves like it used to?
The new OneNote add-in is called Send to OneNote and uses the new OneNote icon and is in it's own group at the end of the ribbon. The OneNote add-in installed by Outlook 2016 is simply called OneNote, is in the Move group and has the old OneNote icon.
If you use the Send to OneNote function and have the online notebook open in OneNote 2016, the page will sync down to OneNote 2016. However, because the function is tied to the mailbox you are working in, Outlook items will be sent to a notebook in that account, not to a master notebook you use with all email accounts.
If you use local notebooks in OneNote or use it with POP or IMAP accounts, you’ll need to disable the new OneNote function.
Disable Send to OneNote
To disable it everywhere, including in Outlook on the web and in Outlook on Mac, you need to disable it in Manage Add-ins in your account online. In Outlook for Windows, go to File > Manage Add-ins (at the bottom of the screen.) This will open the account’s Manage Add-ins dialog.
Or, click the link below for your account type to open the Manage Add-ins page
