Onenote icons not displaying in Outlook tasks (Office 365) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to set up my Outlook Tasks to take in tasks from Onenote. The tasks generated in Onenote appear in the Outlook tasks just fine. But, instead of the link appearing as an icon, I'm getting a long link like this one below..

    Can anyone advise how  I can get the icons backc please ?

    Test task icon

  • Hi,

    I saw the same behavior (a long link) when testing in my OneNote 2016. Does it work properly before? Does this issue happen after a specific Outlook update?

    How many users are affected by this issue in your organization? 

    I've checked all OneNote settings under File > Options, but I haven't found any setting used to control this behavior. I'm not sure whether this issue was caused due to updates or it is an intended change in OneNote as I haven't found any documentation stating this. 

    You may try to restore to a previous version of OneNote on a testing machine and see whether this issue continues.

    Regards,
