Hi All,

I understand when the team get created it creates the default OneNote.

 

Can we create multiple OneNote to a Team / Channels? If Yes, any recommendations on naming conventions or other best practices for setting up OneNote at team or channel levels.

Thanks for your help.

Yes, you can have multiple OneNote to a Team/Channel

 

General recommendation is to have the main notebook in the General channel and then new sections for subsequent tabs in Teams/Channels.

Naming Conventions - this can be anything you like, but in my experience it's generally something like

 

Channel

Channel-Name

Channel-Project

 

Hope that helps to answer your question.

 

Best, Chris

Yes you can! When you add the tab you can choose the existing one, create s new and also as I many times suggest, create a new section for each channel in the teams notebook! Then it’s one and the same but you have the same logical structure as in Teams! But it depends on use case of course!

@adam deltinger 

Thanks Adam for your recommendation. When you say create a new section for each channel? Are you able to share an example on this?

 

 

Solution
Add a notebook tab in the channel! When it’s presenting the notebooks available choose the team notebook! Expand it to see all sections and at the top click “ create new section”
I have a notebook in Teams but I can’t make my Teams mates to receive notifications When I make a chance.Can you Tell me how to solve this?

@adam deltinger Okay, so you are saying create the OneNote in the General Channel.

But from the SharePoint side you might also have the "Notebook" feature turned on, and this will not link to the OneNote in the Document Library > General without changing the link of the SharePoint navigation.

When creating a "Notebook" from SharePoint it will store this Notebook in the Site Assist folder.

From Microsoft Teams you can then pick up this already listed Notebook and create the sections as recommended in your post.

When the group is created a onenote is provisioner! Thats the one in SharePoint! You can also add this from teams (”group name ” OneNote ) you now have a Dingle notebook which Will be accesible from all places

@adam deltinger 

Aaah thank you for your explanation.

@ adam deltinger I tried your suggstion to add a OneNote Section to the MS Team's NoteBook, unfortunately it does not fit needs. It is my understanding MS Teams proviisions 1 App per team - 1 NoteBook, 1 SharePoint, 1 Yammer, etc.. I created 1 MS Team with 2 Channels (groups). Is it possible to create a new NoteBook separate from the MS Team default? If yes, how does that work with the (MS Teams) SharePoint site? Where are NoteBooks stored on SharePoint? Thank you!
