If you are using a mobile data to browse on your samsung phone or android phone, please make sure to select wifi and mobile data in the option that states Sync using. If you are using a mobile data for your internet activity and select Sync using Wi-Fi only, your samsung notes won’t be synchronized to Microsoft onenote.

So please bear this in mind cause it is very necessary and essential.

Next is to make sure that you have a Microsoft account and signed in on your device. It you have a Microsoft account but not signed on your device, this won’t work until you sign in to your Microsoft account on your device.

You will see all the Microsoft applications so you have to select outlook by tapping on the option.

Microsoft outlook

Because of the fact that I talked about synchronizing samsung notes with Microsoft onenote you may think you should tap on onenote, but I’m sorry you won’t find your notes on onenote unless you opened the onenote app itself.

So please tap on outlook and wait for it to load.

Once it has loaded, tap on OneNote feed icon at the top.

It will load all your samsung notes and it is left for you to select the Samsung notes you want to view online.

On mobile browser;

Once it has loaded, tap on the hamburger option menu at the top left corner of your screen, scroll down and you will see where it states Notes just like on the picture below.

The disadvantage

The major disadvantage or cons of viewing samsung notes online through Microsoft outlook is that you can’t edit the notes and add extra texts to it. However, if you want to edit the notes you have to go back to the Samsung notes app, locate the notes and make the ammendment.

Whatever changes you made to any of the Samsung notes in the notes app will reflect on the Microsoft onenote or outlook account as long as you synchronized the notes to your Microsoft onenote account.
