    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…

    I believe that individual pages can be shared separately by emailing them from OneNote, but this is clunky.

    I would like to be able to share an individual page with a link (shortened or not) and different permissions for that link. Similar to how items in OneDrive can be shared with the public. I should be able to generate this link from the desktop and Windows 8 applications.

    At the moment I keep track of a bunch of projects under one "notebook," and each project has their own pages. The notebook is the company these projects are for. I can't share an individual project's notes, or a single page (say Scrum notes) from that project. I can't even link directly to a page! A work around is to create a new notebook that is shared and copy the page to that one, but this is also clunky.
