The feature team has declined this request due to the fact that a similar experience already exists.
You can achieve very similar functionality with the existing integration. The OneNote integration has been redesigned so that you can add an entire notebook as a channel tab, but always show a particular section (be it new or existing). Within each tab, you can also create other sections as well as pages within any section to better organize your notes.
Thank you for your feedback and suggestions.

Here's my problem with "a similar experience already exists"...
It sacrifices the experience in OneNote in order to simplify the implementation in Teams. It may well be simpler to allow for a notebook to be created in each Channel, but if I have 15 channels in my Team, then that means that if I'm on a mobile device then I have to handle 15 notebooks in OneNote. Surely for the user that's way to granular?
I respectfully suggest that the "best" organisational mapping remains team=notebook / channel=section group? Then inside the channel, that allows for flexibility in the separation of information using sections and pages, without creating a lot of clutter for a user who may only be looking to refer to this information through the OneNote application.
I do hope that the dev team reconsiders this request.
We know you are patiently waiting for this feature. This feature is being implemented in stages. Fast tenant switching is currently in testing both internally and with early customers. We expect to release to the public in the Fall. I’ll post an update once it’s rolling out.
Full multi-tenant, multi-user support will be added after fast tenant switching.
