Creating Section Groups in OneNote

Creating multiple notebooks can help keep work, school, or personal information separate, but is it really necessary to create a new notebook every time you have a new project for work or other information that needs to be separated out?

Section Groups act like a whole new space within the notebook, allowing a user to feel like it is a separate area. Once in the new Section Group, there is always a way back to the main area, or other Section Groups, making navigation never feel like a burden.

Within these Section Groups, a user can add sections and pages, as usual. The difference is that new sections and pages are not mixed with a mess of miscellaneous information, as the Section Groups can be added at any level. Organization, being key to keeping everything running smoothly, is a breeze: There are multiple ways to find what you are looking for, without drilling down through the different levels (a tip for another time).
