Locking Notes - prevent accidental deletion between corolation

It is too easy to delete notes and fields. We use onenote between two sites and accidental deletion of notes has been a problem. A "lock function" would be usefull to prevent deletion but still allow information to be entered

    I suspect the OP meant collaboration or collaborators, not corolation. Assuming that's the case, I strongly support this idea. I'm sorry to say that on more than one occasion I've gone looking for something in a shared Onenote notebook and discovered it missing. Notes that I am certain I created & put a significant amount of time into, and even entire sections. These notes/sections were deleted somehow, either by another user or through some failure of onenote synchronization. I generally assume human error until proven otherwise, so I'm going with another user deleted the content.

    Please add a way to prevent deletion of content on both a granular and a global basis.
