Each staff member added to a Staff Team shares access to that team's OneNote Staff Notebook and its Content Library and Collaboration Space. Their notebook will contain a section group only they and the notebook owner(s) can see.

Staff members need a Microsoft 365 account from their school or district before they can be added. Staff members you add will receive an email with a link to the notebook. 

Removed staff members will no longer have access to this Staff Notebook. To remove their section group from the Staff Notebook, right click the group and select Delete. Deleting their section group will also delete their work.


  • You can only add staff members to a Staff Notebook you created/own.

  • If your Staff Notebook was created in Microsoft Teams, you cannot add/remove others from the online Notebook Wizard. Members must be added or removed in Teams.
