Private Note need be stay private - Webdav? OwnCloud?

Kyle Schuhmacher May 23, 2013 02:10AM PDT

I use OneNote for years. For business and private needs. In no way it is an option to sync my notes with servers outside my business or ouside my private NAS with a webdav server (Synology).

Do you plan to add a feature to fully sync existing OneNote directories with a webdav server or with ownCloud (also NAS aware software)?

Without selfhosted server option, this software can not be used in business environments.

iTunes is not an option here. It is much to complicated and not convienent to use. I want to sync as soon as i'm connected to the network (home or business or vpn). This needs a sync to common driven protocols like webdav.

I tested outline and it is really cool! But I would only switch if: (1) WebDAV is supported and (2) the file system is open. I am looking forward to the next update!

+1 more waiting for WebDAV (on iPhone, which I see from another thread you expect to release around September). I can't wait to be able to access my OneNote notes, *privately,* on-the-go.

Microsoft will NEVER enable Webdav or Owncloud sharing for OneNote.
Microsift wants to own your data and sell it, just like Google.
The Windows operating system has become our enemy. It steals our private data.

Hi Orlando,

Thanks for reaching out!

We've implemented WebDAV sync support about half a year ago.

Did you have a chance to try it?
On Mac it's default and on iOS it's in-app-purchase.

Please try synching your notebooks and write to me if it works.
You might need to disable the file locking to sync the OwnCloud notebooks.
You will find this option in Outline > Preferences > Sync > WebDAV on Mac and Settings > Synchronisation on iPad.
