Ability to share individual sections or pages (instead of entire notebooks)
Vote for this if you want to be able to share an individual section or page with other users, instead of only being able to share an entire notebook.
Shared Links to Single Pages of Notes is being removed
We recently removed the ability to share single pages of notes. The previous single-page sharing implementation from personal OneDrive notebooks was our initial attempt to begin building out the larger feature set. However, this first step didn’t satisfy the needs of our customers and, compared to full notebook sharing, usage of the limited page sharing feature was very low. The technical path we need to take to build out the full OneNote page sharing experience requires us to deprecate the previous functionality until comprehensive work on these feature improvements can be completed.
What happens to page links that I’ve already shared with other people?
Previously shared links to single pages of notes will automatically expire as of June 15, 2018. After this date, recipients of shared page links will no longer be able to view these pages, unless a recipient has already been given access to the full notebook containing a previously shared page. Notebook owners can restore access to any previously shared pages by newly sharing the full notebook with collaborators. Alternately, you can create a separate notebook that contains copies of only those pages that you want to share, and then invite others to that separate notebook.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this feature deprecation may cause.

What I'm reading here is "We can't get it right, so we're giving up on it" - This is still a feature that people want and need.
Please reconsider and allow sharing of sections or pages.
This did not make any sense.
please activate ability to share single pages. thanks.
Please bring this feature back! Teachers need it. And so do the rest of us.
I think everyone wants this done. I'm sure most of us just want to share a single WITHOUT creating another Notebook, so the page shared can be viewed by other people and those people will see any changes made.
I have seen many note taking program/app implement this feature and it's not bad at all. It's simple and doesn't have much functionality, but users are satisfied. Example of those apps: inkdrop, notion, etc.
Totally agree! - Restart/Open this OnNote Improvement (Change request)
Let me share individual pages/sections.
Expected behaviour✔: Let med share individual pages and/or sections in OneNote.
Current(april 2020) behaviour🚫: Only possible to share a complete Notebook
Impact/problem⚠:High risk for information leaking when sharing a whole Notebook.
Workaround💤: Crate multiply/individual Notebooks for each section/note ☹
I had a whole notebook (all my notes) exposed because of this poor sharing limitation.
I would love to hear the opinion of the project head. It's surprising to see them quiet despite some many votes and comments.
We need this function FAST!
These types of "intuitive" tasks are what separate a leader in technology from the rest of the bunch. Failing to respond to what is clearly a requested feature quickly and efficiently is the symptom of a much larger problem.
I agree with the guy's point before me...

I was absolutely amazed that this isn't a feature. I have large notebooks that I utilize and some people only need access to a single page of the notebook. If this feature were to be available it would be a great help to me.
Absolutely idiotic that this is not a standard feature.
hey guys. really?
This is your NO 1 request by far! 6000+ votes, the next item has less than 2000. How can you ignore this and not even give an update?
It seemed two years ago you had a plan. Now nothing is happening. At least tell us what's it gonna be. Otherwise we need to look into alternatives...

Almost two years down the road from this statement, but no timeline for a feature implementation in sight yet? A Notebook page needs to be shareable, and if part of a Meeting for Minute taking, it should be shared automatically with edit rights until locked down by the owner of the Notebook to change the setting to read only. Creating dozens of Notebooks every month to share with all the different crossfunctional teams you have meetings seems the only workaround which creates a complete mess …
today, i tried to solve a problem together but i had to remove my private studies to another. it was very inconvenient. please fix. it is very important feature for note. irl, i don't give my friend my whole note. i just rip it off and give her.
****** stupid what a bunch of idiots

So much crazy in this. I've contacted MS ON on twitter, here, directly to their team, on FB to inquire about this and all that I've found it is mentioned in a slide as coming in the next year and half on YouTube from January. So hold onto your pants. It just may come out sooner than expected.

Badly needed feature for a note keeping app.
Dear OneNote Team
You Deprecated single page sharing in April 2018 to get it done properly, that was nearly 2 years ago...
When will we receive the promised functionality?

This is nuts. How can onenote be so good and yet so bad?
