I'm crying out loud for it.

How can such a simple need can't we achieved in such a complex solution.

This is such a simple feature. How is there no way to rename a file? Very irritating.

Why is this still an issue??  This feature request was submitted THREE YEARS AGO.  Get it together Microsoft!

This would be very helpful.  I found a workaround in copying the contents of a file to the next file, then removing the original.  This doesn't work as straight forward on onenote files, but the built in rename function manually on sharepoint works correctly to rename the onenote files.

Hi @RobertMoriarty , i'd suggest you use the send http request to SharePoint instead (see for an example). That way your file history and created/modified details are preserved.

* edit * Credit where credit is due: @DawgPoundMBA1 submitted the same answer earlier in the thread. I understand the complaints of the other people in this thread regarding the obscure way to do this basic action, but it's doable and without a premium licence at least.

Additional tip: by including the editor property, you can preserve the latest 'modified by' of the item.

Best regards, Marc
