    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.

    The data and security model for OneNote must make this very difficult to do.

    I've long let the Evernote camp, but sharing individual notes there was a breeze.

    Too bad there's not a decent programming interface like VBA as in other Office apps. Someone could write a macro that would periodically copy changed and flagged pages and sections to a read-only locations. Onetastic is a kludge -- limited development environment that is incomprehensible to VBA users.
