When this will happen – This roll out will be started in Mid Feb

What Microsoft is offering

  • Microsoft is suggesting to use OneNote notebooks.
  • We will have an option to export our wiki content to OneNote notebook – This feature will be released soon. We will have separate article for this
  • Very soon OneNote will be default tab to our Teams channel
  • For now we can create OneNote tab using add tab in channel
