To publish a Business notebook so that everyone across the business can access it:
Open your list of notebooks (make sure to display business notebooks) and choose a notebook to publish.
On desktop computers, right-click on a business notebook and select Publish Notebook... (Mac), or select More Sharing..., then click Publish (Windows Desktop). On iOS devices, tap Edit, tap the info ('i') button, then tap 'Publish to Business'. On Android, tap the options menu (three vertical dots) next to the notebook name and tap 'Publish'.

Give your team the level of access you want and select Publish to start sharing the notebook.
You can select the level of access your whole team will have—'can view', 'can edit', or 'can edit and invite'. You can also use a mix of permissions across individuals and the business, for example, inviting the company to view the employee handbook but only inviting members of HR make edits.
Note: If you ever decide you want to remove company-wide access to a notebook, select or tap the 'X’ beside your company's Evernote account name in the share settings.
