  1. Don't get rid of the desktop version of OneNote

    I am a teacher and the App version of OneNote doesn't come close to the functionality of the desktop version. The constant loading of the different pages wastes valuable time a teach doesn't have to waste.

    PLEASE, PLEASE make a OneNote 2019 desktop version!!!

  3. Create a class notebook based on a template

    I would like to be able to create one notebook that can be used as a template and duplicated - including student sections and pages. This would allow all my classes to have the same set-up in their notebooks without having to manually organise them.

  4. Un-distributing a page from a class notebook

    It would be sooo useful to be able to mass delete or un-distribute a page from a class notebook. When I make changes to a page I have already distributed, it means I distribute again, and then students have to delete the original themselves (and many are unable to do this).

  6. Sync still takes too long

    Even with just 2 users, the sync experience is variable and nowhere near as consistent with Google Docs. Sometimes the notebook has to be manually synced, other times it works automatically. With more active users in a class notebook the problem is worse.

    To reduce the overhead of a class notebook constantly syncing there could be an option to set how often the teacher would like all users and clients to sync. For example, if the teacher is just sending out a page with instructions for pupils to refer to then the sync frequency can be reduced to a default…

  7. Deleting Pages in Class Notebook

    Being able to delete pages you have sent out to the students without having to individually go through each students note book to delete it! Being able to tidy up the note book would be great!

  8. Enable recycle bin for owners of Class and Staff Notebooks

    Enable recycle bin (accessible by owners of the notebook/team) for Class and Staff Notebooks, rather than going straight to permanent deletion.

  9. Delete student section from the teachers onenote, while the student still have access to the notebook and their own notes

    Due to GDPR, I am required to delete the student section of my notebook the minute i finish the class, so I dont keep their notes on my computer. The problem is that I can only do that, so the students loose the notebook (or every single student have to export their notebook).

    It would be very helpfull if I could stop having access to their notebooks without deleting anything, so they still have access.

  10. Distributing Page from Notebook in a personal account

    When I try to distribute a page from a Notebook from a personal account, the distribution side bar just spins. If I try to distribute a page from a section that is in the class notebook, it works ok. This problem is not present in OneNote 2016.

  11. Integrate OneDrive into OneNote

    Having the ability to link OneDrive into OneNote would be great, the idea being when a student signs into to O365 they are able to see their OneDrive files in OneNote and drag them into OneNote. This includes the shared with me files.

  13. Enable iframe embedding to embed live content into OneNote

    This suggestion is to unify a few other suggestions. I realize that OneNote has made a lot of progress in terms of embedding content but a lot of helpful content is excluded because OneNote does not allow iframe embedding.
    This feature is partially possible by using Sway as a wrapper but it gives mixed results. E.g. an iframe inside a Sway on a OneNote page will open separately in a browser when using OneNote for Windows 10, but will open on the OneNote page when using OneNote Online.
    It would be very useful if one could do that directly in…

  15. You have this great feature to 'Review Student Work' which makes work easy to find but you don't have any tools to mark that work easily or

    You have this great feature to 'Review Student Work' which makes work easy to find but you don't have any tools to mark that work easily or signify to the students that they should look at it. I would like some sort of commenting tool that can be colour coded for different types of comments; I would like a quick click tick and cross and I would like a drag and drop make your own comment bank. It would also be great to have a one click button to send the work back to your own folder so you have…

  16. Track who writes (digital inking) in collaboration spaces.

    When student type, it shows who made the changes. When student use a pen(digital inking) it doesn't show who marked. Could lead to issues of inapropriate language.

  17. Ability to flip documents that are inserted landscape on the app and not just the desktop version

    In the OneNote app and Class Notebooks there is no ability to right click and flip the document from landscape to portrait. The ability is on the desktop app

  18. Add Placeholders to Pages

    It would be great that while building templates pages for students to complete that we can add placeholders so that students can click to insert the required content. This could be an image or text or sound etc.

    My reference would be what you can do on Kenote and Pages on a Mac or iOS

  19. Background Colour

    I am an educator at Cardiff and Vale College and creating resources for dyslexic students in OneNote Desktop. I have changed page colours to make them dyslexia friendly although when opening in the online version this reverts back to standard white.

    I am aware this has been reported and the response has been that there is no option in OneNote online to change the background colour neither is there any plans to include this in any future upgrades.

    Therefor I would like to stress how inportant it is for this feature to be enabled on Onenote online and any other…

  20. Temporarily hiding students' pages while correcting assignments.

    As a teacher I really appreciate the option of locking the students' pages (under the Review students work in Class Notebook). However, I miss the option of hiding the pages while e.g. correcting the students' assignments.
    This will ensable me to ensure a homogenous practise.

    I hope you will consider this improvement.
