Guide: How can you add OneNote to Microsoft Teams?

You can use OneNote within Microsoft Teams, and in this guide, we describe the steps for installing, managing, and deleting the app in Windows 10.


If Microsoft Teams and OneNote are already part of your daily work routine, instead of switching back and forth between apps and using additional steps to share notebooks with colleagues, you can install the OneNote app on Teams to simplify the experience.

Once the app is added to Microsoft Teams, you can add new or existing notebooks to share content (such as lits, notes, drawings, etc.) And collaborate with colleagues without interrupting your workflow.

In this Windows 10 guide, we’ll guide you through the steps to integrate OneNote into Microsoft Teams.
