Feedly + OneNote helps you better organize your world

We’re happy to announce that today we are adding Microsoft OneNote to the growing list of services that are integrated directly within feedly. OneNote is a cross-platform, cross-device application that enables you to capture, store and share all your ideas, thoughts and information in one place.

Feedly and OneNote share the goal of helping you work smarter, better and more efficiently. That’s why we’re so excited about the integration of our two services. We’ve added a button to feedly that lets you save stories that matter to you directly to your OneNote account with one click. Once a story is added to OneNote, you’ll be able to categorize it, edit it, annotate it, collaborate with others and access it from anywhere.

Here’s how it works.

First, find a story you want to save. Then, click the OneNote icon (OneNote icon). The first time you save to OneNote, you’ll be prompted to sign into your Microsoft account or create one. Once you’ve been authenticated, your content will be saved directly to your OneNote. Easy!

Saving to OneNote in feedly.

Feedly is a single place to discover and connect with everything you want to read, OneNote is a place to organize what you find.

Save to OneNote will be a feedly Pro feature, but from now until April 17, Microsoft has graciously agreed to sponsor the feature on feedly — which means it will be free for everyone for the next month!
Learn how you can do more with feedly and OneNote together.


What is Microsoft OneNote?
OneNote is a free application from Microsoft that enables you to create, organize and share notes. Your notes can include text, to-do lists, images, attached files and audio recordings. You can access your notes from anywhere, and share them with family, friends, classmates and coworkers.

Where can I get OneNote?
If you have Microsoft Office, chances are you already have OneNote, and it comes pre-installed on Windows Phone. You can also download OneNote for free for Windows, Mac OS X, iPad, iPhone and Android, or you can use OneNote on the web.

How do I sign up for OneNote?
You need a free Microsoft account to access OneNote using any of the apps mentioned above. If you don’t already have one, you can sign up for an account here: https://signup.live.com/

How do I sign up for feedly?
When you visit feedly.com for the first time, you’ll be prompted to choose a few content sources to follow. When you find something you want to read, click the “Subscribe” button. Feedly will then give you the option of signing up with your Microsoft, Google, Facebook or Twitter account.

Okay, I found something I want to save to OneNote, how do I do that?
Great! Just click the OneNote icon (OneNote icon) at the top of the article you want to save (it’s right below the headline). If you’re already signed into OneNote, the article will automatically be saved to your “Quick Notes” notebook. You can then move it to another notebook, edit, annotate or share. If you’re not logged into OneNote, feedly will ask you to sign into your Microsoft account.

Will it work on mobile?
Yes! The save to OneNote feature can be accessed from any of feedly’s mobile apps. Once an article is saved to your OneNote notebook you can access it from anywhere you use OneNote.

How much does it cost?
Save to OneNote will be a feedly Pro feature. Feedly Pro supercharges your feedly experience with more powerful search options, faster update speeds and integrations with other web apps you already use. A subscription to Pro costs $5/month or $45/year, however, Microsoft will be sponsoring the OneNote feature until April 17, which means it will be available for free to all feedly users during that time!

    1. There was bug during the connection with OneNote if you were not already logged into feedly. We patch that around noon. Thanks for the heads up.

  1. I’ve been using OneNote for years (and therefore have never had the need to try Evernote). The new Feedly save to OneNote is excellent, and works fine from both Android and desktop browser, but it is not worth $5/month, and so I shall stop using it when the MS sponsorship ends.

      1. Feedly is proud to be funded by it community. The $5/month pays for all the server bill, keeps the experience fast and allows the team to continue to innovate.

    1. Right. It seems that developers in all these startups and companies have only access to laptops with smaller screens. A lot of services become painful on larger widescreen displays. The previous generation of Google+ is a good example. I have a Dell U3011 and god knows how I had to force myself to start using the web in a smaller browser window.

    2. Thanks for the heads up. I shared this with the team. I think that the counter argument is that reading very long lines of text tires your eyes a lot faster. This is why we constraint the test of the inlined article. I do not think that this behavior is new by the way. It might be 60-80px narrower. That is it.

      Note: there is a comics related use case we are looking into.

  2. I have six different OneNote notebooks in my Microsoft OneDrive. Don’t see a way to choose which one is selected by Feedly. Pages seem to be added to Personal(Web) — which happens to be the default notebook, which I do NOT use.

  3. A word of warning, and I’m sure that’s not the case here but I just feel compelled to say it, don’t ruin Feedly by trying to make it fit into Microsoft’s insanity. Keep it independent and awesome!

  4. With this update, the fonts have become blurry and the kerning is all off. “Pre dicting”, “meth o ds”, really? http://i.imgur.com/FuVqm7T.png

    It also lags my browser and causes it to consume all the CPU time it can grab whenever I try to scroll the feed entries. It even takes ages to highlight a single item when the mouse pointer goes over it.

    Good job.

      1. This is the Anonymous from above. Sorry about the attitude — the incredible lag was driving me out of my mind (I measured in Dev Tools how much time it took the rendering engine of the browser to repaint the page on scrolling: seven seconds!)

        Anyway, I have found the culprit that was causing the lag for me. div#feedlyFrame has the property “transform: translateX(0px);” — I am not sure what this is supposed to do, but when I created a user CSS with the following, everything went back to normal, the fonts are sharp again and the lag is gone:

        #feedlyFrame {
        transform: none !important;


        1. UPD: tried unpinning the sidebar. Now I know what that was supposed to do… I guess I can just keep it pinned and have the transform at “none” to avoid the font/lag issues. :)

  5. Reblogged this on Carpet Bomberz Inc. and commented:
    I am a big fan of OneNote which was just released for Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) today. Kudos to Microsoft for trying to get the word out and to get people to try it out. I don’t hate Evernote. I’m just an early adopter of OneNote on TabletPC going back to 2005. More competition raises all the boats. And knowing this might be a premium feature, will make me seriously consider getting Feedly Pro now. Kudos to Feedly for continuously developing their product and and making it better than the old Google Reader I used to use. Feedly, you got the right idea, keep on gettin’ it!

  6. I too need to be able to choose which Notebook receives web-clippings, so I’ll consider getting Feedly Pro if work is going to continue on developing the save to OneNote button. Definitely considering it.

  7. 私はアカウントが二つある。個人アカウント&企業アカウント。

  8. EverNote is my choice — tried them both and it really just boiled down to ease-of-use for the largest amount of users in our organization. OneNote has that ‘feature-wheel’ thingy that over half the users absolutely hated.

    Regardless, they both have their own clipping tools that surpass the ones your must pay a fortune to use with Feedly Premium: https://www.onenote.com/Clipper/OneNote

  9. This so called partnership with Microsoft seems odd, since there is not a single Feedly app for Microsoft platforms (Windows 8 and Windows Phone). And Feedly didn’t even loaded in Internet Explorer until recently.

    1. We are starting to see a lot more IE users use feedly so we decided to invest the time necessary to make feedly work well on IE 10 and IE 11 (both classic and metro). It is not clear is we are going to build a dedicated Windows 8 app but we are very committed to make sure that feedly.com works great in any browser on any device. More about this in the next 6 weeks as we make feedly adapt to smaller screens.

  10. Who gives a shit. OneNote is antithetic to the design aesthetic of Feedly. Who gives a shit about this? I would use Evernote’s convoluted piece of shit solution before I even looked at OneNote with that ‘ribbon’ bullshit.

    1. Microsoft is investing a lot of resources into OneNote. A lot of our users use IE in the work environment. We want to make sure that our users have the freedom to choose their browser and saving tool.

  11. We are still waiting for Evernote integration on mobile. The first ETA gives was last November :/

    1. I was told end of January when I upgraded to Pro and have been ignored since then when I ask about it. So much for Pro support.

  12. hey!! Where are all my feeds? Log on today in my account and find out with horror that they are gone! years of links saved! what happened??? I am soooooooooooooooooooooo sad.

  13. Hi there, is there a keyboard shortcut to activate the save-to-OneNote feature? I’m not seeing anything under the help menu.

  14. Hah! I just tweeted the OneNote team last week asking if they had any plans to produce an API so that apps (I used Feedly as a specific example) would be able to direct save articles. I’ve wanted this feature since the early days of OneNote and Google Reader – thanks for finally giving me the last block needed to consolidate my entire “learn, keep, recall” workflow down into one product!

  15. Do you really need all those permissions to enable this feature? Not sure why you need access to my contacts list and profile info just to post to OneNote. (apologies if MS doesn’t let you lock these down any further).

  16. Save to Evernote is broken under Firefox : Notebooks list isn’t displayed any more right under the click just after clicking on the elephant icon. Could you fix it, please :)

  17. As a onenote user, I’m really pleased with this development. I use the nextgen reader on my surface pro 2 and it works fine. Feedly has already surpassed google reader, and gr was pretty good to begin with. Keep this up.

  18. Oh so basically all the simple stuff is now Pro. Something as simple as invoking some service (URI I don’t even think this works with web services and if it does the framework is already there) and bang! Make it Pro.
    Why not building something “out of the ordinary” for Pro users and then leave us cheapstakes with features every RSS reader should have. I mean “Send to Pocket” is still Pro feature? Really?

    This project looks a lot like Plex now. Sad there is not XBMC alternative to Feedly, so to speak.

  19. Hello There. I found your weblog usung msn. Thiis is
    a very smartly written article. I’ll be sure to bookmark it and come back too read extra off your useful info.

    Thanks for the post. I will definitely return.

  20. Good day! Do youu know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any tips?

  21. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whoile
    thing without having side effect , people
    can take a signal. Will probably be back to get
    more. Thanks

  22. Other products include aster systems, Commercial locks, Locks
    rekey, Mastfer system, Dead bolt, Door knob and lots more to offer at your service.

    Their funds are unlimited because normal people do noot buy more in words,
    but there are people at the end of the day, paying much more
    than they would with the Dallas business community, local locksmith.
    Moreover, he designs and creates a uniqu master
    key for establishments or companies like banks, jewelry shop and malls foor safety from

  23. It’s really very complex in this active life to listen news on TV, therefore I only use the web for
    that purpose, and take the latest news.

  24. We’re a gaggle of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme in our community.

    Your website offered us with valuable information to work on. You’ve performed an impressive activity and
    our whole community will probably be grateful to you.
