    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…

    In order (for me):

    Ability to create sharing links from other clients
    Ability to open shared pages in other clients
    Section sharing
    Editing of shared pages/sections

    There are two issues here, access control and navigation. I have some notebooks that contain information I'd like to keep private alongside information I'd like to share. And sometimes I want to share it read-only and sometimes I want to give editing permissions.

    I also have some large notebooks where I want to show an individual page to a co-worker or friend and a link to the page would make it *so* much easier for them to find it.

    In both cases I'm wanting to share sometimes with a co-worker and sometimes wanting to post a link more publicly, on Twitter for example. With public sharing then for sure page-level access control in important!

    I'm in the process of migrating back to OneNote from Evernote, having gone the opposite way some years ago. This is one feature I really miss - Evernote has page-level sharing.
