Microsoft Teams is the hub for collaboration in Office 365. Teams provides a seemless integration with many of the Office 365 workloads. One of those integrations is with Microsoft OneNote.
In this series of quick tips we continue to spotlight a few easy ways to help you get more productive with Teams. Some of these may be new to you, while others may offer a helpful reminder of options you forgot were there.
A OneNote notebook is created for each SharePoint Online team site that is created.
So when you create a team in Microsoft Teams, an associated SharePoint Online team site is created, which also makes a shared OneNote notebook available to all members of that team.
In a Teams channel, you can add different types of tabs, and one of these tab options is for OneNote.
When adding a OneNote tab to a channel, you have two options: to either ‘use an existing notebook’ or ‘create a new notebook’. If you choose to the first option, you’ll see a list of existing notebooks, including the one that is associated to the SharePoint site for the current team.
Once your notebook is selected, you can create a new section in it – say, for your meeting notes.
Likewise, once your notebook is created, you can add new pages. Some like to create a new page per meeting.
Once you have selected your Outlook meeting, all information for that calendar event will be added to your NoteBook:
- Meeting title, date, location
- Meeting invitation message
- Meeting attendees
- Link to the online meeting
