Hi @frob

Do you need to force the user's notebooks to be saved on SharePoint?
Or do you want to migrate existed notebooks from OneDrive to SharePoint or set the default save location as SharePoint directly from the user’s point of view?

Hi @frob,

Thanks for your explanation.

Did you or some users sync a document library on SharePoint to OneDrive client?

Here is one way to set the default location for notebooks, open OneNote > Go to File > Options > Save & Backup, then modify the "Default Notebook Location", choose one folder from SharePoint, which is like the folder of "Team1 - Doc127" on following image.

Hi @emilyhua-msft

I see this when I open OneNote, where exactly will I go (What buttons will I click) to get to the "Save & Backup" screen as per your screenshot above?
Thank you.

Hi @frob
This version of OneNote that you open is "OneNote for Windows 10", which is an UPW app and not supported on Q&A forum currently,
What I mentioned in the reply above is “OneNote (formerly called “OneNote 2016”)”.
For more, please refer to "What's the difference between the OneNote versions?".

So, could you please search "OneNote" in Windows Search Box again and open OneNote to have a check?

Hi @emilyhua-msft

Got it! Now I've switched to OneNote Desktop.
So, in Account > Connected Services,
- How do I remove the OneDrive?
- How do I view and change the Site it is syncing to?

Thanks.
