I was pumped to hear about the new additions made in the latest teams update. One feature I was especially looking forward to was the possibility to add an existing OneNote notebook as a tab. I was testing this out with a team where I am an owner and a team where I am a member. Also, I am still not seeing the option to add an existing. When will this rolled out to GA? Also anyone seeing the this same issue?

When you select new tab, and then select OneNote, you should be presented with options to add a new notebook or select existing ones (be patient, it may take some seconds to load).

If you don't see this, try updating Teams or enabling developer preview

It's GA for everyone. Is this the same tenant? If not then OneNote app might be disabled in tenant Teams > Apps settings. Only way I would think it wouldn't show up.

This is the same tenant.

Still am not able to do it and my app has the latest updates. I can confirm this because I have the new search bar at the top of my app. Other users in my tenant are seeing this as well. Thanks for trying though! It looks awesome, even in Spanish!

Are you on the same license level? Teams has different options for different licenses. For example in the tenant admin settings for Teams, you can set in my example, different settings for my E3 users, vs guests, vs my Kiosk users. If your a kiosk user or the other person is, then onenote is probably selected in the apps settings for that license level. Need to go check on that.
Nevermind scratch that idea, the tenant wide settings are for all license levels, the other options are for license level.

This functionality is not yet released for EDU tenants.

Bummer but thanks for the info.

still doesn't answer why you don't have onenote option thou :P. That's irrelavant to if the new OneNote tab is pushed or not!

I will open a case with MS about the tab but the new stuff is really what I want.

There is also a known bug where users with academic licenses (ie. Office 365 A1/A3 faculty) are unable to see or add OneNote in certain scenarios.

 

One example we see is if a team was created either before the education templates were released or by a user licensed with E1 or another business/enterprise SKU. The A1 licensed user will in this scenario see OneNote in channels created before the new OneNote features were released, but not in channels created after in the same team.

 

Our support case is currently with the product group.

Good info, seems to be the issue as well with the original poster :p

Good to know! Thank you both for the assistance.

Really good info. and nice to know!

EDU Tenant space isn't expected to have the same ability as the Commercial Tenants with the ability to add existing OneNotes until after the end of the school year. As for the ability to see OneNote's within your own Team/Channel, you must not delete or move the root site of the Groups NoteBook or the ability for the Group to connect back to the NoteBook options will fail, thus, not allowing you to create a OneNote tab in Teams.

I really hate how Teams is split into 2 versions lol..... should be a different product with different forum etc. :).

It sure get’s confusing at times, there is however a space for education available here.

Thanks for the info - saves me continuing to search around on how to do this!
Hi are you aware of when the ability to add existing notebook will be available for EDU tenants? We have been telling teachers that it's coming soon for a while now:(
I believe someone at one time said the goal was this summer, but there is no official ETA. My guess is that class notebook complicates this a lot.

Yes that's also what I've heard. It would be nice to have some ETA or status update though. 

Any update regarding ETA for this functionality for EDU tenants?

Any progress for EDU?
