  1. Schedule pages to go out to students

    It would be wonderful to be able to schedule a time and date for pages to go out to students. This would be wonderful for when you have a multi-day sub.

        • List student names in alphabetical order by surname.

          A little thing, but it would be helpful to be able to choose the order in which student names are listed. My school's software list alphabetically by surname, a fairly standard way of listing names. In OneNote Class Notebook the names are listed alphabetically by given name - a method seldom used anywhere for name lists. I'd at least like the ability to choose.

          • Formatting Tables

            It would be really nice to be able to format tables in OneNote the same way you can in Word. I use the class notebook daily with my students, and it would be really nice to be able to do the following when including tables:

            *Change the width & color of cell borders
            *Set specific cell heights & widths
            *Merge or split cells

            • Clearing login contents for multiple users of Office Apps

              I need help with OneNote/classnotebook login and logout. When student’s login to a Onenote, they are seeing other student's folders under the content library even though that person signed out. They also see any onenotes that person had in their cabinet. I can go to the settings/onenote/reset onenote and turn on the Delete all notebooks and delete login credential when they logout. However, these do not stay turned on for the next person who logs in.

              I've posted our problem in our division yammer. The responses that I get are that they have stopped using Office Apps on the ipads…

              • Distribute read only pages in ClassNotebook

                I want to distribute my evalutations of the students in Class Notebook, that I later can update during the school year so my students always can see how they perform in the curriculum. I've thought of doing a template that I can distribute to the students notebooks and then update them accordingly. However, it is (of course) essential that these pages is read only for the students. Please make it possible to "lock down" distributed pages.

                • Drag from OneDrive to OneNote

                  Please allow teachers / students to drag documents of any kind from OneDrive online to the OneNote App. Currently I have to save the documents to my computer and then drag them to OneNote. I don't understand why these programs don't work together.

                  • Consistency across all versions of OneNote and ClassNotebook

                    There are such huge inconsistencies in OneNoteOnline, ClassNoteBook, OneNote Desktop App. It means you are juggling between them all to achieve one thing. Not a happy state of affairs. Sometimes achieving noting as a consequence.
                    For example:

                    The lack of Forms for quizzes in one and not another.
                    The lack of Connections in one and not another
                    The lack of ClassNotebook tab online

                    There is a large list but just one solution, every feature across all versions.

                      This would make it possible to use all features in Word directly in OneNote.

                      • OneNote UWP automatically distribute existing sections and pages to new students.

                        We teachers need OneNote UWP to distribute existing sections and pages automatically to new students we add to our classes. Currently, we have to add each section and page, one at a time, to each new student. We need the app to recognize that new students will enroll during the year, and make the process more seamless.

                        • embed H5P

                          H5P is so powerful, it would be perfect to embed H5P content into OneNote with just simple copy+paste the URL.

                            My students would like "undo" buttons like Word has. Many students (somehow) accidentally delete their work in One Note and must start over! This is very distressing for them.

                            • Email Page

                              I'd like to have the feature of emailing a Page.
                              This option (Home tab > email Page) is available in One Note previous versions.
                              Basically if you want to share a page with someone outside the organization, this option is handy. Simply open this page in Microsoft Outlook & add the respective email address/es & click "Send"

                                The ability to distribute multiple pages simultaneously would be very useful. For certain materials I like to keep things on separate pages and right now I can only distribute one page at a time.

                                  In the App version I cannot distribute page to groups and/or individual students. Hoping this feature is added so my district can make the switch to App instead of 2016. Differentiation is a cornerstone for how we use OneNote. Same goes for Cross Distribution for middle/high school teachers with multiple classes.

                                  • table of contents

                                    In the Class and Staff notebooks, it would be incredibly helpful to have the option to create a table of contents. When students or staff have multiple notebooks it can be a lot to click through to find content. An optional TOC contents based on sections or pages would be a TREMENDOUS help to get more teachers and students onboard with using the notebooks. It takes an awfully long time to create them manually :(

                                      It would be great to add GIFS in the stickers to give some fun feedback to students! Unfortunately even copying the GIFS in only shows the first frame.

                                        It would be great if immersive reader would also translate.
