Boost Team Collaboration

By syncing OneNote to SharePoint, multiple users of an organization can access and make changes to the same notebook with auto-updated versions. What’s more, the user-friendly interface makes OneNote a trusted team knowledge base.

All Microsoft SharePoint Online sites have Notebook libraries by default to facilitate collaboration. For easy access by all your team members, the SharePoint Online sites can be used as a central hub for all OneNote notebooks. The most impressive OneNote collaboration happens when a team member modifies one of the OneNote notebooks or uploads files to SharePoint Notebook library.
