Create a Template in OneNote: Overview

            You can create a template in OneNote from pages you make or from existing templates you modify. To create a template in OneNote, navigate to the page you want to use to create the template. Then open the “Templates” pane. To do this, click the “Page Templates” button in the “Pages” group on the “Insert” tab in the Ribbon. Alternatively, click the drop-down below the same button and select the “Page Templates” command.

Then enter a name for your template into the “Template name:” textbox. You can check the checkbox to make the template the default for any new pages created in the existing section.
