Move OneNote to a new SharePoint group/Team

Regular Contributor



We are reorganising the Teams structure, makin new Teams. And that includes moving files. Which is easy enough, until we try to move OneNote from an old Team/Sharepoint Group to a new one. 


I have read articles amd watched videoes, but they all seem old. What is the easiest way to move or copy an OneNote book from one Team/SharePoint group to a new Teams/SharePoint Group?


Using Office 365 Business with SharePoint Online/Teams.

Hello @Geir Hogstad 


when i do this, i use this two options:


1. Move or copy content

When you use an existing notebook, you can copy/move OneNote sections and/or pages direkt in OneNote.

Steps: Right-click on section or page > move or copy..


2. Change location of a notebook

In OneNote Desktop App you can change the location of a notebook.

Steps: Right click on notebook > properties > Change Location


Have a good time.

Thank you @David Mehr 


But I think it is a bit more tricky than that? A SharePoint group has a standard OneNote book. Which you can access from the menue on the left. 


So after it is moved, copied, how do I get access to it from the menue?

Hello @Geir Hogstad 


in this case i prefer to move or copy content direct from your old notebook into your new:



With this you don't change the notebook, only adding content, all links direct to the notebook will working fine after your move or copy process.

Thank you. Then I try that.
