Flow to Copy a onenote page to another notebook

I am using a flow to set up a new process when a request is received.  Everything works except for this small onenote part.

I want to use several template onenote pages that will be added to the notebook created as part of the Sharepoint group for each request.

I have this working but the flow mangles the content of the page.

I use the Onenote connector "Get Page Content" action and later in the flow I use the Onenote "Create page in a section" action.  (There is no "copy page" action.)

The flow creates the page and a lot of the content is there but it is mangled.

For example:

     The table shows up with no formatting

     The other Onenote add-ins (like checkboxes) are gone.

 

It looks like only text can be safely copied in this fashion.

 

However, when I go into the OneNote app manually and use the "move or copy" command on a page, it copies all this content perfectly and all the formatting remains fine.

 

Any ideas on how I can get the flow to copy the page without mangling it?

 

Thanks,

Hi @plessor88,

 

I have made a test on my side as you mentioned, and the style of the table and some OneNote add-ins are not displayed properly.

Unfortunately , copying a OneNote page to another notebook is not supported in Microsoft flow currently.

I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, you could vote for these similar ideal in the forum below:

Or you could post your idea in the Flow Ideas forum, so it might be considered for future releases.
