Can you save Onenote for windows 10 notebook to a file server and share?

Are you no longer able to save a Onenote Notebook on a file server and share it out that way?
It MUST be shared through a user's one drive? Seems kind of silly if I want to make a department onenote and NOT a department team and just share the notebook out to the department on the fileserver.
Only way to do this that I know of where the notebook isn't tied to the user's Onedrive is by creating a Team in MSFT Teams and putting the notebook there? I don't want to do that.

    AFAIK you can put the notebook anywhere you want. When you create a notebook you have the option of placing it into your OneDrive folder, SharePoint or any other folder. So you should be able to create a new notebook on a file share (or probably better in SharePoint). Our team uses SharePoint altogether permissions are still iffy in that case.

    If you have an existing notebook that isn't shared yet then you can move it by right-clicking the notebook and selecting Move. However if it is shared then it cannot be moved. The UI provides a link to the steps needed to move a shared notebook but from what I can see it basically just suggests that you create a new notebook in the target location and copy the existing notebook content to it. For small notebooks this is doable but for large one's it can be annoying.
