If you had already set up a Microsoft account in the self-service area at UZH and created OneNote notebooks there before the global introduction of Microsoft 365 at UZH, you can no longer easily access this data.
The following documentation is intended to show you a way to export these notebooks and import them into your new UZH Microsoft account.
The instructions below do not work with the "OneNote" application that comes with Windows 10, but only with "OneNote 2016" that comes with Office 2016 or Microsoft 365. If you do not have "OneNote 2016" installed on your PC, please download and install Microsoft 365 first as described on the page Installing Local Microsoft 365 Applications.
Also make sure that "OneNote 2016" is the default application for the OneNote protocol, as described in Setting OneNote 2016 as Default Application.
Subsequently, a single notebook is exported. If you want to migrate several notebooks, please repeat the process for each of them.
Important: The export is done in your old Microsoft account. This was renamed in the course of the global introduction of Microsoft 365 at the UZH. You received an email around 12 March 2020 informing you of the new name of your old account. It has the form "*@*.onmicrosoft.com" (example: email@example.com)
If you have installed "OneNote 2016" but the notebook opens in "OneNote", please set "OneNote 2016" as default application as described in Setting OneNote 2016 as Default Application and try again.
The next step is to re-import the OneNote package file exported in the previous section and save it locally (or on a network share such as your UZH home or a UZH group drive).
As before, you must repeat this section for each notebook to be imported.
If you have previously imported your notebook into your UZH home or a UZH group drive and you want it to stay there - i.e. not being copied to OneDrive - you can omit this last section.
Note: Our hotline has received a few problem messages regarding this section. If the procedure does not work as described, try this alternative procedure.
As before, you'll have to repeat this section for each notebook to be migrated to OneDrive.
