Onenote & Omnifocus Tasks

Building on the OneNote action, along with the OmniFocus Task action by @RegularCraig, I’ve created a new action that creates a OneNote note in a drafts section along with OmniFocus tasks from lines that begin with [ ]

If can be found in the Directory here.

Just updated to include the Drafts callback URL to the Omnifocus Note field

Hi, dmormerod. I’m new to Drafts actions. Your action is perfect for the workflow I am trying to build. Thank you for creating this action.

When I use any OneNote action (including my own), I receive the following error in my Action Log:

OneNote Error: Notebook “” not found

This happens when I keep the Notebook set to the default. I get the same error when I designate a specific notebook as my destination as the target for my draft, with the name of the designated notebook in the quotations.

I receive the same error for my own simple test OneNote actions. I changed the name of my OneNote notebooks to a single-word name to eliminate any syntactical obstacles; this did not solve the issue.

How have members of the community made OneNote play nice? I can confirm I am running the latest version of both Drafts and OneNote. I receive the same error message on my iPhone, iPad, and Mac.


Have you tried forgetting and re-adding your credentials?

Hi. Forgetting and re-adding the credentials worked. Thank you for the recommendation.

I have multiple Office 365 accounts, so I also had to make sure I was adding the appropriate credentials for the OneNote Notebook. Microsoft’s authentication workflow in mobile Safari was taking me down the path for another the wrong account. I logged out of all of my Office 365 accounts so I could re-add them with the appropriate account first. I re-added the credential and tested the action before I authenticated my other Office 365 accounts.
