INSTALLATION STEPS FOR 2021 KEY2SUCCESS USERS – New Method

Microsoft recently introduced a new method of opening OneNote Notebooks. We are excited to share this new method with our community. Our first impressions is that this installation method will change our OneNote Users’ relationship with digital planning. We ask that you attempt this installation method and provide us feedback. We will be updating our installation walkthrough video soon.

Business and SharePoint users we have found success with this method. It does require you to move the notebook to your OneDrive.

Each downloaded notebook is saved to your hard drive in Zip file format. Please note where the file is saved during the download process.

      1. Unzip the folder found in the file you previously downloaded. This unzipped folder is your notebook folder.
      2. Open Folder and locate the file labeled: Open Notebook. Open the file by right-clicking and choose open with Onenote.  (Note: If you choose OneNote for Windows 10, the installation may fail, we suggest that you use the desktop version labeled OneNote.  If you do not see this file, please jump down to the next installation method.)
      3. OneNote will open with your notebook. You may need to convert the notebook to enable syncing.
      4. The next step is moving your Notebook to your OneDrive account to enable clouding syncing across your devices. Click on File, locate your OneNote Notebook. Click on Share on Web or Network.
      5. To share the Key2Success Digital Planner, you’ll need to put the notebook on OneDrive or SharePoint. Start by selecting the location where you want to store the notebook. (We suggest you place this on your OneDrive account. For SharePoint users, we suggest saving it in your documents in a folder labeled OneNote. (See Screenshot)
      6. Title Your Notebook, then click button labeled Move Notebook. (See Screenshot)

Walk-Through Purchase and Installation Guide

IF YOU HAVE A BUSINESS OR SHAREPOINT, PLEASE EMAIL A COPY OF YOUR ORDER TO contact@brandenbodendorfer.com, please include the email address linked to your account. We will contact you with an alternate installation method. 

Each downloaded notebook is saved to your hard drive in Zip file format. If you want to later import a downloaded notebook, you’ll need to first unzip its notebook folder from the Zip file, and then import the folder to OneNote Online.

To import a notebook to OneNote that you’ve previously downloaded, do the following:

      1. Unzip the folder found in the file you previously downloaded. This unzipped folder is your notebook folder.
      2. In MICROSOFT EDGE or Google Chrome Web browser, go to the OneNote Notebook Importer. <<<CLICK THIS LINK<<
        • This will take you outside our website to Microsoft’s website. It will prompt you to login or create a Microsoft account. Once you log in it will direct you to a new screen to import notebook. Proceed to step 3.

          Tip: Importing notebooks is not currently supported in Windows Internet Explorer. We recommend using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. As of June 2020, customers using Microsoft Edge have stated that the installation process was seamless and relatively quick compared to Google Chrome.

      3. On the screen that opens, click Import.
      4. On your computer, navigate to the location of your notebook folder (see Step 1), click to select it, and then click Open to import it.

      5. Please leave the browser window open and do not navigate away from the page. The upload requires an active connect to the OneNote server. Microsoft does not provide an upload status window. To help support the time it should take to upload we have provided this cheat sheet based on your upload speed. If you are unsure of your upload speed, visit www.speedtest.net, prior to starting the upload process.

OneNote doesn’t recognize the notebook I’m trying to import

If OneNote rejects a notebook file that you’re trying to import, it’s likely that you’re trying to upload the original Zip file that was created when you previously downloaded the notebook. To solve this issue, double-click to open the original Zip file, and then extract (copy) the notebook folder from the Zip file to any location on your hard drive (for example, the desktop). When the notebook folder has been successfully saved outside of its Zip file, you can import the folder into OneNote.
