Hi fellow Teams-fans!

I encountered a problem with the class notebook created in our team for classes.

When I open the book in OneNote (both desktop and online) and try to "add/remove students" a site opens where I am asked to choose the notebook I want to add the students to. But the newly created class-notebook does not show in that list. There I only see notebooks I created in my own sharepoint-site. Since the new book is created within teams however, it lies on its own sharepoint site and does not show in my overview.

Any ideas how to solve this?

 

Thanks in advance!

Students added to the team should be added to the class notebook as well, although it could take some time to sync properly. I don’t think think they will be removed from notebook when removed from the team, but they loose access and are not seen by anyone but the teacher so it doesn’t really matter.

Hi Magnus and thanks for your reply!

The thing is that I would like to avoid inviting to teams at this moment. I'd rather invite directly to the notebook instead.

The reason for this is that we have not officially rolled out Teams in our organisation yet, but will be doing so in the months to come. I wanted to save me some time and go through teams right away because I know that the project will be using teams in the future. 

But if I have to invite them to teams now it will be confusing for them because they are not familiar with teams yet. 

The question still remains though - as long as teams has the class-notebook option to add and remove students it should present you as a teammember with the notebook you just created in the list that is presented when pushing the button.

What you’re trying to accomplish can’t be done, since students that aren’t a member of the team won’t have access to the underlying SharePoint site hosting the notebook. The rule of thumb when using OneNote class notebook in Teams is that settings should be set in Teams.

Same issue here.
Regardless of aim, the button to Manage notebooks should take you to a page that contains all your Class Notebooks. It does not. There are not notebooks there now.
This is now the case for ALL Class Notebooks, even those created outside of Teams...any ideas what I may be doing wrong??
Thanks in adv.

Hi,

I have the same problem that I can't add students to my class notebook created under teams. Can anybody help?

 

Thanks

Anyone know of any progress on this long-standing issue?

We can remove/add pupils as Team members via the Teams interface but seem to have no way of doing so that will change the Notebook membership.

I am having the same issue - was this able to be resolved?

Afraid they dont - students added to the TEAm do not get added to notebook automatically and there is no way I can see to do it.

Hmmmm.

I was able to solve this at my school. It requires admin access or someone with admin access to do it for you. It appears that adding a student to the 'Team' doesn't add them to the Office 365 'Group'. I had a teacher gain a new student and came to me with this issue. I went into the Groups section in the admin portal and found that even though the student was added to the 'Team', she wasn't added to the 'Group'. I manually added her to the Group and then her Class Notebook for the Team was set up instantly. @Jan Lötberg
