We’re no longer developing new features for OneNote 2016. If you want to take advantage of the latest that OneNote has to offer, consider switching to OneNote for Windows 10. For more information, see What’s the difference between OneNote for Windows 10 and OneNote 2016?
If you’re not quite ready to make the switch, you can keep using OneNote 2016 for a while longer. Learn more about the future of OneNote.
If you'd like to share your notebook with other people, make sure you create your OneNote 2016 notebook on OneDrive so others can get to it. If you've already created a notebook on your computer, first move it to OneDrive.
Just because your notebook is on OneDrive doesn't mean people can automatically see it. It's available to you on all your devices. You'll have to deliberately share it with others before anyone else can see it.
Invite people in mail
You can invite people to see your notebook with an email message generated by OneNote. Only people who are invited will be able to open your notebook.
Choose File > Share.
Under Share with People, type the names or email addresses of people you'd like to share your notebook with.
In the drop-down box on the right, choose whether each person can edit or just view your notebook.
Add a personal note, if you'd like, and choose Share.
The people you've selected will get an email invitation to open your notebook.
Get a sharing link
You can generate a link to your notebook so others can view or edit it. If someone forwards the link to another person, they will also be able to see your notebook.
Choose File > Share > Get a Sharing Link.
Next to View Link or Edit Link, choose Create Link.
