Microsoft adds “Notes” tab, powered by OneNote, in Teams for non-EDU Enterprise users facilitating effective notetaking and collaboration.

We are happy to announce that Microsoft Teams Enterprise (non-EDU) users will now get a “Notes” tab, powered by OneNote, added by default to the tabs bar on creation of new standard channels to enable rich notetaking experience. This feature has started rolling out and you will get it soon if you haven’t already.
 

  • Easy collaboration on OneNote pages across the team with co-edit and page-level conversation
  • All channel notes are organized within a single OneNote notebook, making it easier to find
  • Richer OneNote editing with typing, ink annotations, highlighting, file attachments, etc.
  • Easy recall and search for channel notes within OneNote on any platform
  • Access your notes from anywhere, even outside Teams on OneNote
Microsoft has announced that a new "Notes" tab, powered by OneNote, will now be automatically added to the tabs bar for Microsoft Teams Enterprise users upon the creation of new standard channels. This feature, already used by educational users, will now be available for non-educational enterprise customers, allowing for a rich notetaking experience. The "Notes" tab will only be available for standard channels and not private or shared ones yet.

OneNote, the sole notetaking app across the Microsoft 365 ecosystem, will not create new notebooks but will instead utilize the default notebook created at a team level. When a new standard channel is established, a new section with the channel's name will be dedicated to notetaking within that channel.

The tool will provide a collaborative environment for OneNote pages with co-editing and page-level conversation features, as well as rich editing options including typing, ink annotations, highlighting, and file attachments. It will also organize all channel notes within a single OneNote notebook, and allow for easy recall, searching, and access from any platform, including outside of Teams.

Previously, this function was enabled by Wiki, which is set to retire from Teams. Existing Wiki users can export their notes to OneNote from the Wiki tab, and a read-only copy will be retained in the Wiki app for reference. This new feature is currently in progress and will be rolled out soon.
