Updated June 13, 2023: We will not be rolling out to GCC, GCC-High, DoD and Microsoft 365 operated by 21Vianet as described below. Organizations in these environments can safely disregard this message and we will communicate the new timeline via Message center when we are ready to proceed. Additionally, MC496248 (January '23) is not applicable to these environments. We apologize for any inconvenience.
As communicated in MC496248 (January '23) Microsoft Teams users will soon get a “Notes” tab, powered by OneNote, added by default on the tabs bar across the top on creation of new standard channels for note-taking capabilities. Earlier this capability was powered by Wiki, which is set to retire from Teams based on the announcement, MC496248, published in January.

[FAQs]
How can I access the content captured for all channels in Notes tab?
All members in a team will be able to access the content captured in Notes tab across all standard channels within that team by clicking on the Show navigation icon on left.
How can I add back Notes tab to a channel if it is accidentally removed?
Please note that Notes tab by default is only supported in standard channels at the moment. If your standard channel used to have a Notes tab, you can add it back.
In Teams, go to the channel you want to add the Notes tab again.
In the tabs bar across the top, select Add a tab . The Add a tab window will open.
Select the OneNote tile. The OneNote window will open.
Select the “Default team notebook” for your team, then select Save.
A tab with the team notebook name will be added in the tabs bar across the top. Right-click the tab to rename it to “Notes”.

Go to the Notes tab and select the show navigation icon. Create a new section in this notebook and give it the same name as the Teams channel.

Note: Having a dedicated section for each channel will help avoid confusion for others who access the notebook.
In the section, create a page, name it, and start taking notes.
