Can we get/replace the existing notebook/sections that were created originally when the channel was created? I have existing full notebooks that I am bringing in to a teams channel stored on our sharefile. I would like to be able to remove the default OneNote tab that was created, I have 'moved' the orginal section to the full-blown notebook and would like to cleanup the Team tab 'OneNote' as it no longer works....
No option to move, did I miss something?

I have the same problem.
I am able to delete the Wiki tab from new channels that I create, but the OneNote tab for my old channels cannot be deleted.

Hi, thanks Gary and Scott for the good conversation here :)
We have both the ability to remove old OneNote tabs, and a 'migration' flow to automatically upgrade old tabs to new, on our roadmap.
I'll report back on both of those when they available.

Tried twice (update, quit, relaunch & login)... Nothing changes.
I do not get the option to link pre-existing notebooks.

it is becoming a mess now on our setup:
old channels got 1 notebook with sections per channel.
Now you get the option to create a notebook per channel , but I'm not able to get the same approach as before -> create 1 notebook ( for example in general channel) and in the next channel open this same notebook , but use a different section.
It will not show the "general tab" onenote in the "open existing onenote" menu...
anyone any idea why this is not working ?

WE created a one note file on one of our shared hard drives, with each section representing a project and directed One Note that this was where they were to be synced to . We did this because we were getting multiple copies of the One Note file being synced to multiple locations and it was getting very confusing as to which was the correct file to open.
When we set up Teams, I added One Note section for each team/channel, linking it to the relevant section in teh One Note file.
I have just discovered that Teams has created anothe rcopy and it is now syncing to a new location, so we are back to square one with multiple copies of the same file, some of which are syncing and some of which are not.
Why does Teams interfere with where you have chosen to sync the file? It is ridiculous. The whole point of One Note was so that everything was synced, but now we have to find our which copy is syncing and whihc is not.....

Have now discovered that it is not possible to share a one note notebook (unless it is only the online version). If you try to share a notebook with the entention that teh recipient is able to open the notebook on his/her desktop application that is not possible. WTF??????? THat is totally ridiculous MS.
Apparently, the only way to do that is to export the notebook to a Notebook package and then share that package....How userfriendly and intuitive is that?
Coupled with the difficulty in ascertaining where books are syncing too and the consequent likelihood that you will end up with half a dozen notebooks with teh same name in various states of sync, this is another MS disaster....how does MS repeatedly screw products like this up? Does anyone there at MS think these things through, before releasing them to paying customers who then have to waste hours/days having to sort out problems that MS created in the first place?

So Can someone at MS, please respond - we created a number of one note note books and placed them in one of our One Drives (yes MS very clever there are 2 one drives....). THis is apparently the recommended best practice. These were then shared. We subsequently learn that the sharing mechanism does not work (and instead you have to export the notebooks as packages and then share them. We then linked to existing notebooks in Teams. However, when I open them in teh desktop application, I see one more that they are not syncing to the One Drive location we specificied but to a sharepoint site. This will inevitably lead, once ahain, to multiple One Note notebooks with excatlky teh same name, some of which are syncing and some of which are not.
My question is - is it the case that when you add an existing notebook to Teams, does it then change the syncing location? If so, if a team member opens up the desktop application, will he/she not then be confronted with multiple files with exactly the same name? How will he/she knwo which one is actually syncing and which is not (unless he/she looks at the file properties each time to identify where teh file is located)? Finally, does anyone at MS think any of this through?

Well, can someone at MS please respond.
We created a number of "OneNote" notebooks for different projects we are working on and located them via teh OneNOte app in (one of the two) OneDrives (as per apparent best practice). WE then tried to share them, but found out that this apparently only allows sharing of the online version and to allow afellow team member to see a shared notebook in the desktop app, you need to export the book to a One NOte package and then share that (how intuitive and user friendly is that and where do you actually explain this anywhere MS rathe rthan wasting hours/days of my time..)
Anyway, so we created channels in teams for teh projects and then linked to the relevant notebooks.
However, when I open the online notebooks thru the tab and then open in them from there in the desktop app, I see when I look at the propertie sfor the Notebooks that they appear to be now syncing to a sharepoint site, rather than to the Onedrive location we chose. Is that corect? Are we once again going to end up with multiple One NOte notebooks with teh same name in various states of sync (as we have previously)?
OneNigel (which based on MS prodct descriptions, must mean of have numerous twins, I never knew existed)...)

Anyone notice that when the link is clicked, it shows up as Guest Contributor? Why not the name of the author if they are accessing the link within Teams (meaning they are signed in)?

It appears that pasting the link to a section no longer works. It did until 2/12. Now when pasting a section link into the new tab interface, the first page of the Notebook is showing instead. This is the same behavior to the user as it was before the fix in January.

I have noticed the exact same issue. We had this working as intended in January, and now we can no longer connect to a notebook section or page using the Link or Browse functionality. We actually have existing channels / teams linked into various sections / pages of OneNotes in the exact same notebook, but now if we attempt to create a new OneNote tab in Teams on a different channel / team and link to a specific section / page, it always displays the first page of the entire notebook. The odd behavior is that Teams launches OneNote online inside of it, but the link always goes to the first page in Notebook no matter way. If I paste the exact same link into my browser, OneNote online initiates and navigates exactly to the specific section as intended. From our perspective this functionality was working (we linked a number of sections / pages), but it no longer functions for us.

Hi Jared, Brett,
Thanks for letting us know of this issue (pasting links to sections in the Teams dialogue no longer links the notebook to the correct section). We also see this issue and are looking into it right now. I will inform the thread when we have a resolution :)
Nigel - I'm sorry if you have felt ignored on the forums. The Tech Community forum is not an official avenue for support and is not regularly monitored by the Microsoft support team (I am not actually a support representative myself but a member of the engineering team). Your issue looks a bit complicated and I would recommend you reach out to Commercial support via the following link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/assistedsupportproducts#gsproductselector (I know this might look unfriendly but I promise it is the correct way to get a ticket created so that you are tracked in the system :)).

Can you tell those of us who are education tenants whether this OneNote feature will be granted to us for use in Teams? It would be great to start a Team notebook from and existing OneNote.
