You can use OneNote within Microsoft Teams, and this guide, we'll outline the steps to install, manage, and remove the app on Windows 10.
If Microsoft Teams and OneNote are already part of your daily work routine, instead of switching back and forth between apps and using additional steps to share notebooks with colleagues, you can install the OneNote app on Teams to simplify the experience.
Once the app is added to Microsoft Teams, you can add new or existing notebooks to share content (such as lits, notes, drawings, etc.) and collaborate with colleagues without breaking your workflow.
In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to integrate OneNote into Microsoft Teams.
To add OneNote to a team or chat on Microsoft Teams, use these steps:
Click on OneNote.
Quick tip: If you don't see the app, perform a query for "OneNote" in the search box.
Click the down-arrow button and select Add to a team or Add to a chat option.
Click the Set up a tab button.
Click the Create New Notebook option.
Confirm the name for the new notebook for the team.
Quick tip: You'll also notice an option to open an existing notebook using a link, but it's only supported for notebooks hosted in SharePoint or OneDrive for Business.
Select the newly created notebook.
Once you complete the steps, the notebook will be created in the Microsoft Teams storage, and anyone in the channel will be able to see and modify its contents.
Microsoft Teams allows you to communicate and collaborate with colleagues, upload files, and chat through video. It integrates with Microsoft 365 and many other cloud services.
To change the name of the OneNote notebook tab, use these steps:
Click the down-arrow button and select the Rename option.
Confirm the new name.
After you complete the steps, the new name will be reflected in the notebook tab.
To rename the actual OneNote file, use these steps:
Select the OneNote notebook.
Once you complete the steps, the OneNote file and tab will reflect the new name.
If you no longer need the OneNote notebook, you can always remove it from Microsoft Teams.
To remove a notebook on Teams, use these steps:
Click the down-arrow button and select the Remove option.
Once you complete the steps, the OneNote notebook will no longer be available on Microsoft Teams.
The action to remove doesn't delete the notebook and its content. It only removes it from the Teams experience. If you want to delete the notebook, you need to do it from the "Files" tab.
To delete a notebook on Teams, use these steps:
Select the OneNote notebook.
After you complete the steps, the notebook will be deleted from Microsoft Teams.
If the notebook you're trying to delete isn't in the "Files" tab, make sure you in the correct chat or team. You can also check the Files section from the left pane and see if the file appears under the OneDrive section.
To uninstall OneNote on Teams, use these steps:
Right-click a team with the app and select the Manage team option.
Click the Uninstall button for OneNote.
After you complete the steps, the app will be uninstalled from the team. Same as removing a notebook, uninstalling the app doesn't delete the notebooks or their contents. Alternatively, you can also right-click the OneNote icon from the left pane, and click the Uninstall button to remove it.
