Uploading OneNote to SharePoint in OneNote 2013, OneNote 2010, and OneNote 2016

The process of uploading a OneNote notebook to SharePoint varies depending on the version of OneNote you are using, be it OneNote 2013, OneNote 2010, or OneNote 2016. In OneNote 2013, you can easily upload your notebook to SharePoint by following a few simple steps. First, open your notebook and navigate to the “File” tab. From there, select “Share” and choose the OneDrive or SharePoint location where you want to save your notebook. Once you have selected the location, click on “Move Notebook” to complete the process.

For those using OneNote 2010, the process is slightly different. Open your notebook and go to the “File” tab, then select “Info” followed by “Share on Web or Network”. Follow the on-screen instructions to move the notebook to OneDrive or SharePoint. Once the notebook is saved, you can easily access it on various devices using the OneNote app.

If you are using OneNote 2016, the steps are as follows: click on the “File” tab, then select “New” and choose “SharePoint”. Browse for the SharePoint document library where you want to store your notebook, enter a name for the notebook, and click “Create”. This will upload your notebook to SharePoint, allowing you to share it with others. You can send them a link via email or invite them from within OneNote. Additionally, you can set up notifications to receive alerts about any updates made to the notes on SharePoint.

Replacing the default notebook on SharePoint with your existing notebook

Open your existing notebook on your desktop version of OneNote and go to “File”, then “Share”, followed by “Other Web Locations” and “Browse”. Paste the copied URL, rename the notebook if desired, and click “Move”. Finally, depending on your settings, you may need to update the URL through site settings or by clicking “Edit Links” on the menu and modifying the existing Notebook link or adding a new one.
