In the panic to quickly get learning online as schools closed, we moved to using Teams with absolutely no training or knowledge of how it worked. 

I set up my teams and then activated class notebook through each of the teams. 

 

I then did all my 'learning', discovered onenote and have come to realise that my way of doing things probably wasn't the best way to go about setting things up. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. 

 

We are in the process of changing to next years school timetable, so I now need to delete 10 teams and class notebooks, but I cannot find a way to do so. 

It appears that if I just delete the team, the notebook still remains (albeit now inaccessible).

 

Everything I'm reading points me to deleting class notebooks through onedrive, but as the teams were not set up through onenote, there is no evidence on them on onedrive. 

I also can't delete them through onenote as again, they weren't created there, so there is no evidence of them.

 

I'm actually really enjoying the functions available through teams and class notebook and am looking to build them into my teaching as a permanent feature, not just for this temporary time, so I really would like to find a way to delete these notebooks!

 

Can anyone help me to delete these class notebooks from my teams please?

@sel_chick Interesting to note your experiences. Few points on deleting the Class Notebooks in Teams:

 

  1. By default, the Class Notebooks appear in the General(default) channel of every new team that you create.
  2. By default, when you activate the Class Notebook, it is replicated in the OneNote app and in your Onedrive as you pointed out.
  3. Find more guidance on deleting the Notebooks - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/delete-a-onenote-2016-for-windows-notebook-from-onedrive-...
Thank you so much for your reply.

The information you've given tells me to delete the notebooks from onedrive, but the issue is that the notebooks are not there! There is nothing to delete in onedrive as the folder where they should be is empty.

I discovered after I posted this last night that I could copy a notebook from sharepoint to the folder in onedrive.

Would copying the notebooks to the folder in onedrive then allow me to follow the instructions you have provided to ultimately delete the notebooks?
