A couple of features to point out here:

  • You can select exactly where you’d like to store your content—just tap Location and select your preferred notebook and section. The OneNote Share extension supports sending content to both OneDrive and OneDrive for Business notebooks.
  • OneNote automatically populates the title field with the name of the webpage. Want to change it? No problem, just tap and edit.
  • If you want to add some additional notes to your clipping, whether it be some extra context or just something you want to make sure you don’t forget, just add it to the Note field.
  • If you’ve got an internet connection, OneNote will show you a preview of the webpage and will include the entire webpage when it’s saved it to your notes.
  • Don’t worry, the URL is saved for you as well, in case you’d like to return to the page later or on another device.

Now, tap Send.

The next time you open OneNote, your notes are imported and available on all your devices. The Share extension is designed to work even if you’re offline, so if you’re on the go with your iPad or want to limit your cellular data usage, you are gotten covered.
