This tutorial explains how to see notes of OneNote Notebooks on a calendar. You will be able to see all the notebooks on a calendar, based on the date on which they were created.
OneCal is a free tool that provides a Calendar for accessing notes of all your OneNote notebooks. It displays the list of all notes created/modified on a particular date. You can hover the mouse over a note title to preview it and can also click on it to open that note with OneNote.
With this tool, it becomes easier to find a note available in a particular notebook. You can access notes stored in all OneNote notebooks or just a particular notebook.
By default, this tool shows the monthly view. However, You can switch to weekly view mode or Day mode as well. This standalone tool can be used directly from desktop or you can use it as plugin with OneNote.
