    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…

    The inability to share individual sections or pages just doesn't make sense. Whilst I acknowledge the ability to share whole notebooks remains, this is of limited value and results in a messy and complicated notebook structure with way too many notebooks. For instance, I don't want to have a whole notebook for each employee that reports to me. Teachers don't want a whole notebook for every student. It would make more sense to have folders for classes and have students within that folder, etc. I encourage you to find a solution to this for the 1500 users that have contributed to this forum, and the hundreds of thousands of others that have not contributed, but are affected by this.
