Description: OneNote Basics Part 1

When you create a team site, a OneNote 2013 shared notebook is automatically created as part of the site. You can use this notebook to capture, compile, and share information. (This feature is available only if you have signed up with an Office 365 suite that includes Office Online support.)”

When opening your new Team Site – you’ll notice a link to the Notebook on the left.

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
