    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…

    MS, could you drop us a line and let us know how you're tracking on implementing this feature? Happy to wait for it if it's proving tricky, just give us some hope that it's eventually going to happen.

    Poor OP has been waiting for this for 4 and a half years... Any progress? Any updates on how it's going minus one to tell us that even what we had (read only sharing) is taken away.
    It would be great to get even a small update before this reaches 6000 votes (i.e. 3 times the number of the other most popular ideas)
    There must be some deep-rooted technical reason in the design of the app to make this is virtually impossible, because I see no reason why a team of devs who can write the rest of this app can't build this feature.

    Just an update is all we ask. Just something to say "yes we really care about the issue that the biggest number of our users care about, and we're trying to make it work, and we think we'll get it done this year."

    Still no progess update since April - given it's your *most requested* feature, heaps of users would love a bit of confidence that you are working on this and actually trying to make it happen.

    If it's proving difficult, that's fine, we can be patient. But if you're not actually planning on doing it, then at least tell us, so that we can start shifting our notes to a different program made by someone other than Microsoft.

    Don't keep us hanging.

    Looking forward to the implementation of this feature - could we please have a progress update from the OneNote Team?

    Currently, Google Docs is the go-to medium for most collaborative work, but when OneNote (finally) gets the ability to share individual pages, with a similar level of permissions control to what regular OneDrive/Google Drive files have, it will be a Google Docs killer, because it has:
    > Ink support;
    > Tags (especially the todo tickboxes);
    > Offline access on all platforms;
    > A 'real program' interface rather than just web;
    None of which Google Docs currently has.

    Ball's in your court, Microsoft. Don't let this opportunity pass you by.

    Thank you for voting on this feature. I’d like to gather more information on what you would like to see in the future. I have posted 4 questions below —

    1. How often do you tag a note/item with multiple tags?
    a) Never
    b) Rarely
    c) Sometimes
    d) Often
    e) Always

    2. Can you provide an example, from a recent instance, in which you applied multiple tags? e.g. “todo” & “critical” and “todo” & “important”

    3. Some of you commented that it’s important to see all the tags for each item in the summary list, not just the first tag for an item. If multiple tags were shown for each item on the summary list, what would this allow you to do next?

    4. When finding tags in OneNote 2016, which tag list is most important to you? Why?
    a) Summary Page
    b) Tags Summary Pane
