Good Evening,

Has anyone had any experience with using OneNote 2016 internally on their corporate network rather than having it sync to OneDrive/O365?

We would like to start using this software but we cannot have the data leave our corporate network.

yes i know we can save this data on local disk or even in shared file system just i we have to put the path

but my question related tp users who want to share some data with other users in the same corporate

so i am thinking about punting such data file server but how can i mange permission if some user want to share one note with other etc

we don't have share point  

any advice here  
thanks

Hi sword12,

this defeats the purpose of OneNote but all that is needed to make this work is to not sign into you your Office 365 account or add it as Connected Services.

However, in 2016 permission sharing is done almost exclusively through SharePoint meaning you use the conventional method of assigning your Office 365 account & thus uploading the data to the MSFT cloud.

Here is how you would do it in 2007: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-a-new-shared-notebook-024BD386-3F33-4B60-BD96-41B773D56A5E

You can share OneNote files as your normally would handle share permissions in Windows, e.g. NTSF.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Do you want a sophisticated system to share parts individually and/or on demand only?
Everything else can be managed with keeping different OneNote files on shares, giving out dedicated access privileges.
Very helpful, thank you so much guys.
