Assigning section level permissions in OneNote

So you have multiple people editing a OneNote notebook in SharePoint Online, but you want section level permissions (only certian people can edit their own tabs).

There is a way to break permission inheritance on each tab!

  1. Navigate to the document library where the OneNote notebook is stored
  2. Copy the URL into Notepad
    1. Example:
  3. Modify the URL to contain the Notebook's Name
    1. Example:
Notice how the bold parts are the URL to the notebook, escaped by the character %2F

This will get you to the library where you can see a view with each section as its own item. 

Now you can break permission inheritance on each section and give unique permissions!
