I shared a Onenote Notebook from my Enterprise/Sharepoint account with edit permission to a person who has a personal Microsoft account but he can't add it to his Onenote desktop app because "Open in Desktop app" button is missing

    Based on your description, I could not reproduce this issue currently.
    Could you please tell me how did you share your notebooks?

    Did you choose "Specific people" like the image below?
    Did you click "Send" button directly to share notebooks?

    Any updates, you may post back.

    Yes, specific people. I entered his email address and he received the link all right. But when he opens the link in the browser there is no "add to desktop app" button... I checked it myself.

    Is it maybe because you cannot add business notebooks to personal accounts? Do you know if it is supported to add a shared business notebook to your personal account?
