  1. When I pick the task in Outlook, it has a shortcut to OneNote sheet. However, as I double-click the icon, a warning pops up, asking whether to open, save or abort. How do I make it just to open the shortcut without any questions?

  2. Can anyone suggest how to create an Outlook Task from OneNote and then move that task to a different Outlook Tasks folder? Every time I move the task into the desired (shared) folder, the connection to OneNote gets broken.

    I want to take a group task list from OneNote and create individual Outlook tasks that go in a shared Outlook folder. I don’t see any way in Outlook to change the default folder that OneNote creates the tasks in.
