Do you have a sharepoint team site under your office 365 subscription?

If no, you need to use onedrive to sync onenote.

You need to move your notebook in OneNote 2016 to OneDrive if you want to sync with your Android device.

have you signed on to your microsoft account?

Jackie ManCommented:
when you sign on in OneNote with your MS account, you will see your OneDrive.

Create a notebook in OneDrive.

OneDrive in OneNote
By default, the notebook will auto sync with OneDrive.

On your SAMSUNG Note 4, download and install OneNote app, signon with your MS Account and select "Open notebook" and look for your notebook and open it.

Whenever you add, change, delete anything on either side, the change will be reflected in other connected OneNote app in one to two minutes.

It would not let me copy any thing when I right click on the misplaced section in one Note. I would like to move the misplaced section to Microsoft one note note book all at the same time instead of having to move one section or tab of the misplaced section  to the new Microsoft one note note book in one note 2016 then I think I can sync with one drive. Can I do that ??

Jackie ManCommented:
Try drag and drop while you click on the tab of the notebook to move it to the one on onedrive.

We are using different versions of MS OneNote.

I am using the version which comes with MS Office 2016 and you are using the free app which comes with Windows 10.

I have tried the sync of OneNote App in Win 10 with OneNote App in my iPhone and the sync is auto when changes have been made either way.

I think that you have encountered a sync error which is caused by editing the same notebook at the same time and MS OneNote is unsure which version is correct.

So, keep your notebook in OneNote in simple structure and in case you got an error, the only fix is to start a new notebook in OneDrive and move your old notebook to the new one.

can some one help with my question. Instead of being labeled as NEGLECTED !!!!

Jackie ManCommented:
My wild guess is that you have logout of your MS account and use your local account to logon to win 10.

You MUST logon with MS Account if you want to sync your MS OneNote app or copy any things to your notebook stored on OneDrive.

The notebook should be corrupted.

If you create a new notebook, can it be synced across different devices?

RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
Win 10 has built in support for OneNote.

Open Explorer and you'll see it in the folder list.  Once you save it there, you'll be able to see it on your galaxy note

RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
That's because it already has by default.  It saves your notes automatically and saves them automatically in onedrive, under "Documents"
