Evernote Converter: No Longer Supporting or Actively Developing
The importer software is still available for you to download and use, but we’re no longer actively developing or supporting this tool.

Unfortunately - you are going to lose a lot of business not supporting this. Evernote is effectively why OneNote is not the more popular tool. Why would you not support it?
The importer is ridiculous. I have to sort through hundreds of notes after my Evernote data imported into OneNote. Why can't I just individually move or copy one Evernote notebook into OneNote, so that it has the same structure, a notebook with individual notes within that?
If Microsoft no longer supports the OneNote Importer, that should be made clear before the user wastes hours trying to fix the imported Evernote data that is mostly merged by the importer, instead of a straight import.

The OneNote Import Tool has been released by Microsoft in Preview mode. This tool converts evernote ( .enex ) to be opened in OneNote. Because this note was release in Preview mode ( pretty much beta ) the tool has many kinks to work out. For starters, conversion of notebooks and notes in Evernote show up as individual notes in OneNote. There is no real grouping or organization. Microsoft states in several articles that it should convert notebook to notebook and note to note. Once opened in OneNote the notes are hard to search through. Think of 100 notebooks totaling in 800 notes in evernote, trying to get that over to OneNote. Almost impossible to sort through and have to manually move these notes one by one - either copying and pasting or exporting each notebook one by one and then using the import tool. This is a non starter for a company that's looking to abandon EverNote and move to OneNote completely with the office 365 suite. Got a hold of one of their reps and there is no confirmation on release date.
The Evernote-to-OneNote Importer does not copy the URL in the Evernote URL field and copy it across. It should be used to in the OneNote text "Clipped from: ..." normally inserted in the top of clipped OneNote pages.
The importer doesn't convert Evernote links to OneNote links.
The converted notes in OneNote have links that look like:
Which of course means they link to Evernote and not the correct OneNote page.

Just used the OneNote Importer to bring nearly 1000 Evernote notes into OneNote. For the most part, it worked very well.
However, I was quite disappointed to see that despite the fact that nearly all of my Evernote notes have a source link attached to the note, OneNote didn't copy that into the resulting page.
As such, I think it's a feature that's really needed in OneNote Importer. Simply appending the end of an imported note with the same "Clipped from <link>" as normal, but using Evernote's source would be quite helpful.

I cannot find the source links either. Is it possible to address this in the Importer?
With Evernote restricting Evernote Basic to two devices in less than a month, a LOT of people are looking for replacement. It is a golden opportunity to get them on OneNote.

Evernote Importer does not handle bullet point lists correctly. Indented bullet points get an empty bullet point line inserted above them.
Am I missing something or does the Evernote converter lose all of the source URLs in my Evernotes? This is a lot of important information!
