NEW Features in OneNote Online

In starting off the new school year, Microsoft has announced some new features for OneNote Online to enhance creativity, productivity, and collaboration.

  1. Insert from Camera – This feature is extremely popular in the Windows 10 OneNote App and has now been imported into OneNote Online. To use it, simply choose Insert -> Camera and the image will be placed on the current page.
  2. Emoji Keyboard – Students will love this new features. Simply go to Insert -> Emoji to see a small sample of the available emojis. To see the full emoji keyboard, click “More Emojis” from the bottom of that menu.
  3. Autocorrect – You have the ability to control the autocorrect functions in the Windows 10 and Office 2016 apps, but not in OneNote Online. Click Home -> Spelling -> Autocorrect and you can now edit your settings for autocorrect and auto format options.
  4. Copy a Link to Section – You had the ability to copy and paste a link to a page in OneNote Online to link between pages quickly and easily. Now you can right-click on a section and do the same. OneNote Online recognizes those links when pasting and will format them down to a much smaller hyperlink, rather than the huge amount of text actually copied.

These new features were announced on Oct. 3, 2018 and should be rolled out to 100% of OneNote Online users in the coming days or weeks.
