The O365 OneNote integration gives users the ability to view and browse OneNote notebooks. When configuring the integration, you must specify up to 5 notebooks to show. This integration obeys the access rules of your O365 environment and will not display notebooks to users who do not have access to them in O365.

Considerations and caveats
You must sign in to the integration using your organization's O365 credentials. If you sign in with different credentials, you most likely not be able to any of the configured OneNote notebooks.

O365 administrator sign in
The first time you ever set up the integration in your digital workplace, your Office 365 administrator must sign in to it using the Sign in as Microsoft Admin link on the authentication prompt of the integration. This only needs to be done once per Office 365 environment. Once an O365 administrator grants permissions to the app, the integration can be used anywhere in your digital workplace without additional administrator approvals.
After an O365 administrator grants permissions, edit the integration to disable and hide the Sign in as Microsoft Admin link.
Enter a title for the widget. The title appears as a heading above the widget's contents. You should use the title to provide context to the widget and better structure a page's content by clearly denoting different sections.

This field can contain a maximum of 140 characters.
Enter the URL of a location in your digital workplace. Users who click the widget's title, if it has one, will go to this location. Whether you enter the link as a relative URL or an absolute URL does not matter, it will convert to an absolute URL the next time you edit the widget.
This field can contain a maximum of 2,083 characters.
Enter a description for the widget. The description appears between the title and the widget's contents. You can use this text to provide information to users about the widget.
When entering a description, you do so only for your currently selected language. If your digital workplace supports multiple languages, you should select Translation and enter a description for each supported language.
