Step 5: Send Invitations

Click on the “Share” button to send invitations to the selected collaborators. They will receive an email with a link to access the shared notebook.

Step 6: Accept Invitations

Collaborators should open the email invitation and click on the provided link to accept the invitation. They will be directed to the shared notebook in their OneNote application.

Step 7: Start Collaborating

Once all collaborators have accepted the invitation and opened the shared notebook, they can start collaborating in real-time. Each person’s edits and additions will be synchronized across all devices and visible to others.

Step 8: Add and Edit Content

Collaborators can add and edit content within the shared notebook. They can create new sections and pages, insert text, images, and tables, and format the content as needed.

Step 9: Use Comments and Tags

Collaborators can use comments to leave feedback on specific sections or pages. They can also use tags to categorize and prioritize information within the notebook.

Step 10: Sync and Save Changes

OneNote automatically syncs changes made by collaborators. However, it is a good practice to manually sync the notebook by clicking on the “Sync” button to ensure all changes are saved and up to date.

Step 11: Stop Sharing

If you need to stop sharing the notebook, click on the “Share” button and select “Stop Sharing“. Confirm your decision in the dialog box that appears.
