Chapter 23. Sharing and Collaboration > Collaborating with Others

Collaborating with Others

There are several ways you can use OneNote to collaborate with others. You can put a section (a .one file) in a network location where multiple users can access it. You can save a .one file to a SharePoint site and make it accessible for multiple users. You can also use OneNote as a type of shared whiteboard.

Locking Notes for Editing

A frequently requested feature for OneNote (and other programs) is to be able to have multiple users work on the same document in real-time. OneNote doesn't quite support that functionality, but it comes close. Two users can have a .one file open at the same time. Unfortunately, only one user can make changes to a OneNote file at a time. When the first user opens the .one file for editing, a lock is placed on the file. This lock allows another user to open the file for viewing, but not for editing. In order for the second user to edit the file, the lock must be released.
