We just made it easier than ever to clip the web — now, when you send an email with a URL to firstname.lastname@example.org, we’ll clip a screenshot of the webpage along with the email’s contents into your OneNote notebook.
- Browsing the web on your smartphone? Hit “Share”, pick Email, and send it to email@example.com.
- Find an article in a news reader app? Share it via email and type firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Friend emailed you a funny link? Forward it to email@example.com.
To get started, just send an email containing a single URL in the subject or body. And fear not, you can still save your list of “top 100 lasagna recipes” without getting 100 screenshots in your notebook — if you send us an email containing multiple URLs, we’ll only save the mail content and skip the web clipping.
If you haven’t set up firstname.lastname@example.org yet, it only takes a second. Head over to https://www.onenote.com/emailsettings and pick the email address(es) you’ll use to send emails to email@example.com. Anytime the OneNote service receives a mail from your email address, it will add it to your default OneNote notebook. For more details, check out this blog post or this YouTube video.
Last but not least, let us know how we’re doing by clicking the feedback links on web clipped OneNote pages. Thank you for your feedback — it helps us improve!
