Shared OneNote and sync errors.

Regular Contributor

Hi,

 

Sometimes (or often) a shared OneNote report "Merge conflicts". Is there any recomendations for best practice here. Like:

 

- Which OneNote version to use (OneNote App, OneNote for Windows, Web, Teams)

- Will forcing syncronization really help, like recomended here

 

Other tips?

 

Reports for merge errors:

As a steady OneNote user for over a decade, I can share what trips me up - closing notebooks too soon after adding/editing - regardless of which flavor of app I'm using - I didn't allow enough time to sync. Also, opening up on a device that's been dormant for a while with regard to OneNote - if I start editing before it has a chance to sync on that device, I get conflicts.

I hope that helps.
