OneNote - create section, then create page in that section

I can create a section - no problem. But what if I want to create a page within this new section? I believe this behaviour to be a bug.

 

The "Create Page" asks me for the Section ID. If I return any of the following variable names:

  • Create section in notebook object id
  • Created by name
  • or if I manually generate the name of the section that I want it to go in, using whatever string I used to create the section

it all fails.

 

What am I actually supposed to be passing to this variable? The error "Including a Section Id" is less than helpful, because you've already told me that I should be entering one. But I don't know what it looks like, or where I should be getting one from.

 

Can someone help?

Re: OneNote - create section, then create page in that section

Hi @daniel_d,

 

Thanks for your feedback, the issue is confirmed on my side, the result that the “Create section in a notebook” action returned doesn’t contain Section Id property, so we couldn’t get Section Id dynamic content from outputs of “Create section in a notebook” action within “Create page in a section” action.

 

I would post this issue to my team, if the issue is solved, I would reply to you here.

 

Best regards,

Kris

I've run into the same need. My users would like to have a list submission in SharePoint spin up a OneNote section and create an initial page.
