I am trying to sign into OneNote with my personal account on my work Mac. However, the work Mac auto-signed in to our work Office 365 Business account. If I sign out from OneNote, it signs me out in Excel too. 

 

Is it possible to sign in to OneNote with my personal and Excel/PowerPoint with my work account? Or is it possible to sign into OneNote with two accounts - personal and work?

@Romit Mehta Yes, you can :) File/Open Notebook. Then at the bottom select "+ Add a Place." This will prompt you to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, or SharePoint. It sounds like you should be selecting "OneDrive" to then get the prompt to login to that personal account. Once that is added you can click on that profile to navigate through the file structure to the notebook.

@eemancini  Thanks! Adding personal OneDrive in OneNote should not impact anything with my work Active Directory/OneDrive for Business account, right?

@Romit Mehta That is correct. They are separate syncs.

 

The only thing to consider is that you are downloading a copy of your notebook locally so if you left the company unexpectedly and they had access to your computer they could see that notebook. If you change the password that will not remove the content that was previously synced to the desktop client. You can always close the notebook and remove it for a planned departure :)
