OneNote - Migration of notebooks between accounts (iOS/iPadOS)

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 migrate these notebooks on an iPad/iPhone (iPadOS/iOS) to your new UZH Microsoft account.

In this section you log out of your Microsoft account in OneNote.

  1. Open the Settings app on your device and navigate to the OneNote section.
  2. Tap on "Reset OneNote"
    Tippen Sie auf "OneNote zurücksetzen"
  3. Only enable the option "Delete credentials".
    Aktivieren Sie nur die Option "Anmeldeinformationen löschen"
  4. Press the Home button twice in quick succession and wipe the OneNote "window" upwards to exit OneNote.
    Wischen Sie OneNote nach oben, um es zu beenden

Connecting your old OneDrive

In this section you connect your old OneDrive, where the source for the copy operation is located.

Important: In this section, use your old Microsoft account. This was renamed in the course of the global introduction of Microsoft 365 at the UZH. You received an e-mail around 12 March 2020 informing you of the new name of the old account. It has the form "*@*.onmicrosoft.com" (example: peter.muster@uzhch0.onmicrosoft.com)

    Melden Sie sich mit Ihrem alten Microsoft-Konto an.
  6. You have now connected two OneDrives.
    Important: Please note closely the different names of the OneDrives for the ongoing procedure:
    • NEW: "OneDrive - Universität Zürich UZH"
