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.

Add this, it's much needed. It's not as efficient to switch between entire notebooks just to have someone need access to 1 page.
I would like to selectively share the sections rather than creating a new notebook and than have to switch back and forth between the shared one and non-shared ones. If I have section that I can share, I can be in the same view all the time and can quickly edit and move from one section to another. It will be a GREAT PRODUCTIVITY BOOST for all OneNote users out there.
We need it :)
This is a must-be feature for every note application! We are waiting, dear MS!
I want this so i can share a page of notes with a classmate or to upload a link to a single page for an assignment to a professor via canvas.
I work on assignments and the ability to share just one page at a time would allow viewers to pull what they are looking for up right away rather than getting everything i have ever done then sorting through it... plus what if i dont want them to see everything but rather just one page.
i want this because i have no option to save a page, no option to publish a page, and the share feature is a pain.
To share notes with classmates. I have all my subjects in one notebook with a different section for each class. I don't want to share hundreds of pages of notes that could be a different class.
Any update on this?
For teachers this is a must feature.

Making backpacking list for fellow hikers on my personal Notebook. Don't want to share entire notebook, but would like to collaborate on section/page

I use in an educational setting and would like to be able to share sections about certain things with other staff, but without having to share the entire notebook which has other confidential materials.
I`d also like to share only one page of my notebook - for instance my grocery list with my wife, so that she is also able to add something.
why can't I share a single page of notes? seems ridiculous
Evernote support something like this which is very useful!
My design team needs access to only one tab but not all of the tabs. At this time I can not share anything because I would need to share everything :(
I would like to share my To Do's with my wife. But the Notebook is not relevant to her just one section that is common. So I would like to share only 1 section dedicated for the both of us.
Thanks for this awesome program, keep up the good work :-)
Would love to be able to use OneNote Cass Notebook to create learning journals/e-portfolios that can have individual student sections be shared externally with parents to encourage and support learning partnerships.
How is this feature review coming a long?
This feature that would many benefits in a school or corporate scenarios.
- Sharing a student section in a OneNote Class Notebook, to with a parent.
- Setting up a section for a group of students, for a project.
- Scheduled release / revealing of sections in a Class Notebook. Teachers can then prepare a unit of classwork and reveal it when it is ready and when the class covers the unit of work.
I agree with the comments below, it seems completely counterintuitive that you would have to make 2 sets of notes in 2 sets of notebooks in order to share the SAME information with different people. I don't want to have to tell my clients that we need to share multiple notebooks or have to make 2 sets of notes to keep everyone on the same page. Pages and sections should be able to be shared in multiple notebooks with different permissions. No brainer. I love onenote functionality, but will reconsider Google Drive and just sharing individual docs and files if this cannot be implemented.
