How to use the feed in Microsoft OneNote

Microsoft provides OneNote with a feed similar to what you see when you link to one SOCIAL MEDIA application. The feed in OneNote combines notes, displays changes to the page and allows you to add sticky notes in one easy-to-use place.

Here are some things to keep in mind when using the OneNote feed:

  • The possibility is available at OneNote for Windows 10, on OneNote desktop, in OneNote for the web and in OneNote for Android.
  • The feed syncs notes related to the same Microsoft account, including OneNote, Samsung Notes and Sticky Notes on all your devices.

How to use the OneNote feed
While the feed at OneNote is a great place to review your latest items, it offers more than just a quick look at the notes. You can switch between accounts, create and edit Sticky Notes, open a OneNote or Samsung Note page, and browse or filter.

Switch Microsoft accounts
If you have more than one Microsoft account that you use with OneNote, you can easily switch between them in the feed.

At the top of the feed window, click your current account to see a drop-down list of options. Select "Sign Out".
