Updating Multiple OneNotes with a "Master" OneNote

I'm hoping to find a way to update multiple OneNotes in a SharePoint Library from a single OneNote notebook.

In reality, I really just need to take a page I'm calling "Updates" and have it sync to all the OneNotes in the SharePoint library. If I could get more than just one page's contents easily, that'd be nice though. 

 

I've been able to make a flow work resembling that model that looks like this: Capture.PNG

 

 

But under this model I'll have to manually add each notebook (I have hundreds, hooray) and manually add each notebook I create in the future. 

I was thinking though, maybe I could just suck it up and add all the notebooks that are already made, but I still have no desire to update the flow each time I create a new notebook. So I saw that Flow Management has the Update Flow action, thinking that I could update the flow to link the file, but now I think I'm confusing myself with bad logic. 

 

Is this a more effecient way to make this task possible?

I tried using the Class Notebooks add-in for OneNote to make this possible, but it wasn't able to work for my needs since it only syncs with OneDrive and it insists on only using linkable people in the network for the student notebooks. I guess I can only push the add-in so far for my non-education needs, haha.

 

Thank you.

Re: Updating Multiple OneNotes with a "Master" OneNote

Hi @svanvalk,

 

Could you please share a bit more about the OneNotes in your SharePoint library?

Do you want to updater all OneNote files within your SharePoint library with a "Master" OneNote?

 

I have made a test on my side and I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

The result the "Get page content" action returned is a HTML data, but when I update file in my SharePoint library with "Update file" action of SharePoint connector, the File Content field of "Update file" action requires a binary data. There is no way to convert the HTML data into a binary data in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

Best regards,

Kris
