    reMarkable 2 and OneNote integration

    3 min read

    In the past couple of months, I’ve seen a number of people with the Remarkable 2 writing device.  The Remarkable 2, touts itself as the world’s thinnest writing device and feels like drawing on real paper.

    The reviews are good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIwc2iE8qpA

    Wired Magazine gave a good review, but said, ‘This E Ink tablet excels at taking your handwritten notes, but it doesn’t do much else well.’.   The tablet is a one-purpose device, it doesn’t pretend or claim to be anything else– Only note-taking that’s it.  No email, no Office, and no Facebook (probably a good thing).

    The challenge I have with this device is OneNote integration, as with all notes, there needs to be a repository for all notes, not just reMarkable 2 notes. And in my world like other people, this repository is OneNote.

    There are a few options to integrate reMarkable notes to OneNote. This video is one method that explained How to integrate your reMarkable 2 with OneNote easily.    Two options:

    Option 1:  iPhone app to send documents to OneNote app on iPhone.   Bit fiddly, too many clicks and only PDFs.

    Option 2:    Email forwarding to OneNote

    Both of the options work, but they rely on the user to set up the rule and configuration and there are a bit too many steps for my liking.  It is also not ideal for an IT department to manage a couple of users, so an alternative is to use a shared mailbox and set up a flow to manage the forwarding of email to a user’s OneNote. This can all be centrally managed, which is the win here.

    This blog post explains how to use Flow and a forwarding rule that can be set up on a shared mailbox, to copy Remarkable Notes to an individual’s OneNote page.

    This is an example of an email from remarkable.    This will be referenced in the flow
