Hi all!

I have a very strange situation and have searched for possible cause and solution but can't quite place my finger on it.  

I use OneNote 2016 and I have a page where I place all my completed To-Do's tasks there.  The "Completed tasks" page (that are tasks moved from another OneNote "Task List" page) has over 40 pages and growing.  Here is an image of the first part:

OneNoteJANAcompleteTASKS
Note:
The links u see are links to other OneNOte pages, drives/folders, files, cloud locations or links to web address of interest.

Problems:
  • Sometime the page takes time to open in order to move complete tasks.
  • Typing on this page lags a lot (character super slow to be displayed after typing).
  • If I keep filling this page, more slow it will get (notice that the "Completed tasks"  date; it was started on June 2019, that's 5 months ago.  Based on the 40 pages accumulated now, that means that by this time next year would be over 96 pages - super slow!)

My humble nontechnical observations is that maybe its the links in the  "Completed tasks" (maybe).

So, i am out words what is going on.... Help!

Is there any right-click software that is always displayed on top which I can customize with own forms and add own notes in?

Almost like a MS OneNote.

I would like to be able to easily and quickly customize and add my own forms/cheat sheets as well as add notes, all the time while I have another software also opened at the same time. However, this right-click software (should be able to select in right-click menu to open it) should always be displayed on top.

I have some users whom can open a one note file but cannot sync the books
When I sync them manually it tries to sync but fails without any error message.

They were made with OneNote 2016 and NOT the win 10 app

Hi, note sure if this is possible but can you setup WorkSpace One / Airwatch with 365 so that if a user's device is not enrolled on Airwatch he cannot configure or receive emails on 365 on any mobile devices ? If so where do I start ?

I use multiple computers, including a work desktop, a work laptop and my home desktop.  I have linked my personal OneDrive account on all of the PCs that I use.  

A while back, I began using OneNote 2016.  Being a bit OCD, I am trying to organize my OneNote Notebooks and consolidate them into one area; preferably in a folder on my personal OneDrive account.  

I began by going into OneNote 2016 on all of the PCs that I use and went to File / Options / Save & Backup and set the default notebook location to c:\users\my.name\OneDrive\Documents\OneNote Notebooks.  I thought this would become the save location of any new notebooks that I created but apparently I was wrong.  

Scenario 1 - When I create a new notebook in OneNote 2016, my personal OneDrive account is selected in the left column (the other options are This PC, Add a Place and Browse).  If I type in the notebook name and hit create notebook then it creates a shortcut for the notebook in my personal OneDrive account within the Documents folder.  There is no directory created with the .one or .onetoc2 files saved in it; only the shortcut.  

Scenario 2 - If I create a new notebook in OneNote 2016, and click on "Create in a Different Folder" it opens a file explorer window showing the folders within the following  path "https://d.docs.live.net/2bef2cbcexxxxxx" which appears to by my personal OneDrive account.  If I click on my personal OneDrive account on the left hand side of the file explorer window, browse to…

We have an issue on a large Citrix Environment with One Note 2010 backup files and also the Cache file location.
When a user is logging on and opening One Note (users have many  notes open on taskbar). The backup is ran once per day as per default and then fills the Citrix Vdisk cache up causing issues. To get around the backup issues we can setup a GPO and disable backup and also redirect the folder to the user home file store.

The main issue we have is around the One Note Cache how do we successfully tackle that. When a user opens One Note with all the Notes a cache database is created in local / appdata  with cache data, in some cases this can grow to a very large size on a Citrix worker server and will also fundamental cause Vdisk cache issues.
The only solution I have see is to use Symbolic link to redirect the folder / files to a drive location other than the drive of the worker server.

There is also an option set to optimize files, which can cause an issues where it optimizes the databases as per default, can this also be disabled ?

Has anyone else worked around this issue in a VDI / Terminal Server / Citrix environment ?

I am piloting One Note for our School Improvement Plans for our school district.  I need to be able to merge cells to use one note for this purpose.  How can this be done, or when will it be available?  I love one note and would love to have it as our primary recommendation for district wide use.

I'm looking for advice on how to resolve a OneNote performance issue where OneNote fails to finish synchronizing across all the folders in a very large shared folder structure. Can someone tell me if what we're trying to do is possible, or advisable? Here are the salient points:

1. We want to use OneNote for multiple reasons, including reference information for what types of information & files are in different folders at each level of the infrastructure. Of course, we want this information to be searchable at every level.

2. There are currently 3500+ folders, and it will probably grow to more than 15,000 folders as we consolidate multiple share drive locations into a single structure.

3. Whenever a user opens OneNote files in the new folder structure, s/he just waits and waits, and most of the time OneNote is not able to return any content. (This issue holds true in most situations unless we create a OneNote Notebook manually in a subfolder - in that situation, if a user opens that notebook, only subfolders are synchronized and any OneNote files in folders above it are ignored.)

4. We are starting to look at using SharePoint as the backend to OneNote. The purpose here is to see if we can make OneNote sync with SharePoint and not scour the entire folder structure looking for changes. Has this been done, or is this a worthwhile direction to explore?

Any comments, questions and advice are welcome.

I work with sharepoint foundation newest bulid and OneNote 2016 (office 365). And I have a OneNote file inside of a library and saved as web template. If I produce a new web, I have a new OneNote. That works fine. But when I open the OneNote the first time, the section has a message "loading process running... please wait" (german: Ladevorgang läuft... bitte warten). Nothing happens than, this text remains.
I can generate new sections in OneNote, thats ok, but my template sections remain in this loading state.

In the library generated in this way, the "section" property is set as required even when I switch it off bevor I save the web as template.
Strange, isn't it?

Does anyone know how to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

No replies since this poste since about two months. Do you understand the question or is it such a unsolvable problem? Thanks for any comments.

Controller disconnects from Xbox One randomly yet constantly.  On average it disconnects about once every 2-3 minutes making gameplay nearly impossible.  In other words every 2-3 minutes the controller starts “blinking” and whatever game I am playing pauses and the Xbox displays “controller disconnected.”  I then have to wait for the controller to stop blinking (reconnect) then try to continue play.  I stated on “average” every 2-3 minutes, but sometimes it is non-stop (disconnect, reconnect, immediately disconnect, repeat.

I had a friend bring over two of his controllers to test them to see if it is a problem with the controller you sent me or both the controller and the console.  While playing, the controller you sent me disconnected at least once every few minutes.  His controllers disconnected approximately 5 times in the course of a half hour of play.

I played the Jackbox Party Pack that connects to your smartphone via the Wi-Fi connection and had no issues over the course of at least an hour of play with a friend using only smartphones. Does that rule out the Wi-Fi Chip? Should it be the RF Module Board or both that are replaced?

TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS ALREADY TAKEN:

- Plugged controller in via USB cable and “updated” to latest firmware.
- Hard wired the xbox one to the modem eliminating it needing to wirelessly connect.
- Moved the xbox one from the enclosed shelf to the top of the entertainment center so that is is not surrounded by any other materials; …
