Re: Microsoft OneNote Notebook Sharing Tips

It is much more easier when you are using it from skydrive. I am having a windows tablet. I can just open and modify files in it. I am able to make changes and it work really well. There is no issue with the same. On the web browser it is really fast. One thing I want to add if you are using a iPad you have to configure sync settings or else it won't work. Add the OneNote app and go in Sync Settings. Then choose Notebook Settings and turn on Shared Notebook. It might take time to reflect the shared files.
