Clone OneNote Checklist Tasks
Easily clone OneNote checklist tasks to your favorite task app. TaskClone also clones OneNote page titles as tasks.
Cloning OneNote checklist tasks
3 Easy steps
- Add tasks. Using OneNote unchecked checkboxes (i.e. note tags). Do not add checkboxes in a OneNote table.
- Add hashtag + trigger tag to initiate process (e.g. #taskclone). Add anywhere on the page except in a table. NOTE: Although you include the "#" when using in OneNote, in the TaskClone Dashboard, tags should have no symbols. We initially configure "taskclone" as your trigger tag. Add "#" plus your trigger tag (e.g. "#taskclone) to alert TaskClone you want to process the tasks in this page. You can always login and change your trigger tag from the Dashboard
- Sync/Save Changes. OneNote will sync automatically in the background, usually in less than 5 minutes
When OneNote Syncs > TaskClone is notified of the tasks, extracts them and sends them to your task app.
When TaskClone is finished > it removes the trigger tag and adds Skip Codes to each task to prevent them from being cloned again. You must sync again or wait for OneNote's auto-sync to see the changes TaskClone has made.
Important! Do not edit the note again until you see the trigger tag is removed and Skip Codes added next to each task. Also, TaskClone will only process the same page once every 2 minutes.
Note: Cloning page titles takes priority over individual tasks which means TaskClone will not process individual tasks from a page if the page title is being processed instead.
