Use OneNote Online to share notes during a meeting

When you take notes during a group meeting, you probably can’t catch everything that people say. You can solve this by inviting others in the meeting to co-author the meeting notes with you. Shared note-taking lets everyone focus on a particular subject and then document it as part of the discussion. At the end of a meeting, everyone is literally on the same page.

To let others see and contribute to your shared notes, do the following:

  • In OneNote Online, click File > Share > Share with People.

    The specific people you invite will receive a message with a link to your shared notes. The permissions that you set for them at the shared location will determine whether they can only view your notes or also edit them.

After others open the notebook, anyone with permissions can add meeting notes — all at the same time as you. OneNote syncs automatically and everyone’s notes will show up.
