OneNote needs to setup before sending

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi friends,

When I attempt to open the OneNote application from the outlook express, I am getting this warning message. There is no problem while installing the OneNote application. Why I am getting this error? Do I need to launch it before calling from outlook? What might be the reason? Guide me to find the solution.

OneNote needs to set itself up before you can send to it. Please run OneNote and then try sending again.

After installing Office OneNote, it will automatically create a notebook for you. You can create new notebooks as many as you want. To create a new notebook, in Office OneNote, click File, New, and then select an option where you want the notebook to be created. You can select between OneDrive and Computer or select another location. Microsoft recommends creating the notebook on OneDrive or another shared location.

After creating the new notebook, it will appear in your list of notebooks. Now, if that error was thrown because you want to share a notebook with other people maybe your friends, here’s how to properly do it. To share your notebook with others, you can generate a sharing link. It will allow others to view or edit your notebook.

If other users also forwarded your link to another person, he or she will also be able to view the notebook. To create a shareable link, in Office OneNote, click File, Share, and select “Get a Sharing Link”.

Next, select Create Link. This allows the notebook to be viewed or edited using the link.
