Announcement: Automate OneNote staff notebook creation and more with new API

Former Employee

We are excited to announce the launch of the new OneNote Staff Notebook API for Office 365! Since the launch of OneNote Staff Notebooks last year, the only way to create staff notebooks was through the OneNote Staff Notebook app. Thanks to all the feedback we’ve received from school leaders, teachers and IT admins, we made it possible to now create OneNote staff notebooks programmatically as well. What this means is that IT admins, Microsoft Education partners and others can automate the creation and updates of OneNote staff notebooks across a school or district. This allows for large time savings and efficiency for teachers, as well as school IT staff. Read the MSDN article on the OneNote Staff Notebook API for in-depth instructions.

Besides terminology e.g. "staff member" instead of "student" is there any difference between the Class Notebooks and Staff Notebook?

I agree Phil. Apart from the guidance, they appear to be exactly th same. We have even used Classroom to create Staff notebooks!


Speaking of the guidance sections, is there any way to disable their automated creation?
