This needs to be re-opened. Having a Staff Notebook/Notes makes sense in some situations, but why is it mandated for every team?
I now have teams in use with about 100 people, and the number one question/request I get BY FAR is "How do we remove the Staff Notebook tab"?
Think about that for a second. I rolled out a new way of working, a new paradigm for collaborative working, and I have many times more questions about this than everything else put together!
Hi everyone! If you do not want to use the OneNote Staff Notebook or any of the other default tabs across the various team types, we suggest creating an ‘Anyone’ team instead.
The ‘Anyone’ team will not include any add-ons by default and gives you the flexibility to use Teams however you would like. We understand that there are so many other ways you can use Teams that does not fit the Class/PLC/Staff team template. So ‘Anyone’ will be your best option!
More information on the different team types in Teams for Education can be found here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/choose-a-team-type-to-collaborate-in-microsoft-teams-0a971053-d640-4555-9fd7-f785c2b99e67
Feel free to reply back here if you have additional feedback.

I've just come back to teams, and this is really annoying me. I have a few teams I made about a year ago, and they don't have the notebook, yet any new ones I make come with the tab even though I don't want it.
I can understand "Files" being mandated, but I feel like the Notebook is only usable in certain circumstances.
