Import Format

Onetastic Batch File Import allows you to insert files in the following 3 formats:

  1. Insert as file attachment
  2. Insert file content (text, printout, image)
  3. Insert link to original file

You can select one or more of these options. If you select multiple options, each file will be imported in each of the selected formats. For instance you can have a PDF file attached to a OneNote page, followed by a printout of the same file as well as a link to the original file inserted.

Output Option

You can choose to import all files into a single page. If you have few files to import or you are only attaching files or link to them, this may be a good option. If you are inserting file contents, inserting each file into a separate page may be a better choice to avoid inserting too much content into a single page. Finally if you are importing printouts, you have the option to import each printout page into a separate OneNote page.

Import Location

Before importing files into OneNote, you need to pick where to import them. Using the button, you can choose a OneNote notebook, section group, section or page to import files into. Where the files will be imported will be based on the output option:

Output Option: All files into a single page Output Option: Each file into a separate page Output Option: Each printout page into a spearate page
Import Location: Page All files will be imported into the selected page Each file will be imported into a new page in the same section as the selected page Each printout page in each file will be imported into a new page in the same section as the selected page
Import Location: Section All files will be imported into a new page in the selected section Each file will be imported into a new page in the selected section Each printout page in each file will be imported into a new page in the selected section

Once a location is picked, it will be displayed under the button.
