Depending on how your organisation has setup authentication, you may have to provide Office 365 credentials as part of the synching process. Also you may only store OneNotes in document libararies, which library you choose is up to you and it could just as easily be a project workspace library. The beauty of this is that you can now work offline and your changes will be synced up when you reconnect. Office 365 work from anywhere is starting to become a reality.
