Microsoft Loop, the collaboration app that allows users to create workspaces with all their ideas for a project, is now integrated with OneNote for Windows and the web. This integration enables users to insert Loop components, such as lists, tables, and more, directly into their OneNote notebooks.
According to Microsoft, this integration enhances collaboration and streamlines workflows by allowing users to remain focused on their content while collaborating with others in real time, without switching between different apps.
To add a Loop component to a OneNote notebook, users can simply open the OneNote app on Windows or the web, navigate to the desired location, select “Insert,” and then choose the desired Loop component from the available options, such as Checklist, Numbered List, Bulleted List, Task List, Table, or Paragraph.
Microsoft highlights several benefits of using Loop components in OneNote, including:
- Tagging teammates using @ mentions directly within the Loop component while still working in OneNote notebooks.
- Integrating shared Team’s meeting notes into personal notebooks by pasting the Loop component into OneNote, providing a single view of both shared and personal notes.
Microsoft acknowledges a known issue with this feature, where users may experience lag while scrolling and zooming in OneNote for Windows when Loop components are inserted. The company is working to resolve this issue.
The integration of Loop components in OneNote is currently available to Microsoft 365 Insider Beta Channel users of OneNote on Windows running Version 2401 (Build 17228.10000) or later, as well as OneNote for the web.
