OneNote Staff Notebook Creation with Salamander Active Directory and SharePoint


After the success of OneNote Class Notebooks, Microsoft introduced OneNote Staff Notebooks. These have a personal workspace for every staff member or teacher, a content library for shared information, and a collaboration space for everyone to work together, all within one powerful notebook. There’s a getting started guide available at

Now, as with the OneNote Class Notebook, Microsoft have released an API to allow partners to automatically create them. I’m pleased to announce that we have now added support for creating and maintianing Class Notebooks to Salamander Active Directory and Salamander SharePoint.

This means that we can automate the creation of Staff Notebooks directory from your MIS, whether it’s SIMs, Facility, iSAMS, Pass or any other MIS. It will also add and remove students and teachers as the membership changes in the MIS.

This allows central provisioning and rollout of Staff Notebooks with no manual intervention required by staff– they can just get on with teaching and enabling teaching.

We can create the Notebooks in several different locations:

  1. In the Staff OneDrives.
  2. In SharePoint sites.
  3. Within the new Office 365 Groups.
  4. In a shared OneDrive.

This is all completely configurable, as are all our products, so we can configure it to whatever works best for your school. We can even automatically archive the Notebooks at the end of the year, before building a new set for the new academic year.
