Why isn’t my Samsung Notes syncing?
You may experience syncing issues with Samsung Notes whether you are trying to connect it with Samsung Cloud or Microsoft OneNote. When you do not see your Samsung Notes in Microsoft OneNote, the first thing that you should check is whether or not you are signed into the OneNote application with the same Microsoft account that you have used in Samsung Notes. If you are using the same Microsoft account, there may be a problem with your internet connection.
If you are encountering syncing issues while connecting Samsung Notes with Samsung Cloud, you can try to clear data from the Samsung cloud and then sync it again.
Syncing issues also occur due to an unstable internet connection. Hence, make sure that you have a stable internet connection.

To sync all your OneNote notebooks across different devices, you have to use the same Microsoft account. Open OneNote and click on the File menu. There, you will see a View Sync Status button. Click on it. Now, select the notebook that you want to sync on another computer and click on the Sync Now button.
You can also set OneNote to sync automatically or manually. The automatic sync is always the best option to select because whenever you make any change to your notebooks, OneNote will sync it automatically with other devices.
