Sync Samsung Notes with Microsoft OneNote

If your Samsung Notes app is full of important folders, notes, and tasks, you can make sure they will never get lost by using Microsoft OneNote. This service allows you to sync your notes across all of your devices so you can view them from Microsoft Office on a PC. You will just need to make sure you are signed in to your Microsoft account on your Galaxy phone.

Sync your notes

Note: If your Galaxy phone has Samsung Cloud, you may be required to turn it on before enabling OneNote sync.

Syncing Samsung Notes with Microsoft OneNote lets you access your content directly from Microsoft Office, whether you are using a friend’s PC or your personal computer. You can sync individual folders or all of them, depending on what you would like to see in OneNote.

Navigate to and open the Samsung Notes app, and then tap the Menu icon (the three horizontal lines). Tap the Settings icon (it looks like a gear), and then tap Sync to Microsoft OneNote.
