    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…

    It seems very counter-intuitive that this feature won't be there in the software at any point in time.

    I will give you a use case. I want to do all my long term (and some short term) note taking on OneNote. Seems fitting as the name literally suggests that. For that purpose, I have built a "Personal" notebook. This has sections like "Quick Notes", "Health", "Journal", etc. "Quick Notes" has pages which are relatively long-term notes but cannot be grouped into a larger category. Now as I am working on some light research work helping a friend for a certain situation, I'm taking notes. Where do I put them? "Quick Notes" to the rescue. I create a new page inside that section and do my work. Now I am ready to share my work with my friend. In fact, it would be really helpful if he can chime in and do some more edits on that page as well. And it would also be really easy for me to just share the page with a shortened URL and then forget about it. But I cannot do it with the current feature-set.
