Back during this year’s Build conference in May, Microsoft announced a bunch of features that will be making it to the Edge browser. The features included the addition of a sidebar search to the browser to allow for quick context searches and enhancements to the Collections feature in the form of Pinterest integration. For those not in the know, Collections let users copy images, text, and links from the web and store then in groups.
Another feature planned for Collections was the ability to send the list of items in a Collection to OneNote. Now, that feature is live for Insiders running the Canary and Dev versions of the browser (spotted by Techdows). It is not clear if the update was a server-side push, but users running the latest insider versions of the browsers should see the addition of the feature. It is currently not available for Edge Beta users.
As for the feature itself, it is a minor one that adds a ‘Send to OneNote’ option in the ellipsis (…) menu of a Collection item, along with the current options to send to Word and Excel. Clicking on the option will open a pop up with the available locations (or notebooks) where the list can be exported to. Users can select from the list of sections in their notebook to which they wish to export the list to.
It should not be long before the ‘Send to OneNote’ feature integration makes it to Edge Beta, and eventually to the stable version of the browser.
