I have created notebooks in Online for Mac and saved them on one drive for business. When i login from my iPad or iPhone they are not showing. Can you help?

Hi Ian,

Thanks for reaching out!

And how did you upload your notebook to OneDrive on Mac?

That is actually not so easy because Mac OneNote doesn't support local notebooks.
Therefore OneDrive doesn't have an option to upload local notebooks to a cloud.

We use the following workaround:
- create a new notebook in OneNote Online;
- open it in Outline using "+" > Open from OneDrive for Business;
- drag&drop section from your local notebook to this new OneDrive notebook > sync.
Here is an article with the screenshots (If you have local notebooks in Mac Outline):

Another variant is to move your local notebooks to iPad through iTunes or another cloud storage and move it to OneDrive from iPad.
It's much easier: tap the notebook's cover > Properties > Location > OneDrive for Business.
And here is an article on iTunes import:

Please write to me if there are any difficulties.
