  1. please reinstate the insert printout function in ClassOneNotes created through

    Please reinstate the ability to 'insert a printout' in the Class OneNotes created through MS classroom. This function has been modified to not embed the associated file...this means the printout can not be opened or edited and refreshed from within OneNote.

    This was one of the BEST features of OneNote for class use.

    If it cant be reinstated then at least provide the ability for it to be an option for Office admins or teachers to set when managing a classroom.

      • Create a 'Time Locked' Drop Box

        I would love a drop box for time specific assignments. One that I don't have to go and look at time stamps/pages for history if something was completed on time, etc. A collection point where a final assignment can go and I can get to it when time allows - without worrying if kids are making changes that I need to try to account for.

        • Being able to delete a section from all students folders

          If you setup the onenote with the 4 default sections accidentally but really don't use some of them. It would be nice to be able to delete it from all students folders at once. Especially in the initial setup stages

          • The Same Features as MS Word

            I can't understand why OneNote tools are not the same as Word. For instance, why can't I insert a comment when correcting work and have the student give me feed back? The layout and design features are different, why?

            • locking down student work title

              When I create an assignment and distribute to Ss, I tell them not to change the title of the page, but invariably someone (often more than one someone) renames their assignment page in their individual space. This means I have to do hunt and peck for assignments when doing "review student work." Could we have feature to "lock down" assignment title so it all shows up in one place when we do review for grading ease? Thanks!

              • Embedding

                It would be great if I could embed with html codes. Fore example, I have Prezis and Vokis that I would like to embed.

                • Bring back OneNote tshirts

                  I know, it's not a feature request for the OneNote product. But I want to voice my concerns on the drought of OneNote tshirts. Let's see some exciting designs and make them available in the Microsoft store for all fans, educators and students to purchase.
                  Enough said... passing the mic to the next supporter.

                  • Geometry Tools

                    It would be very useful to include geometrical drawing and measurement tools like a movable rotatable rule, set square, protractor, and compass. These are tool that students will use in the real world and they would make teaching navigation for instance using OneNote far more practical. I have used such tools on Promethean's ActivInspire and this is the only area that I find OneNote lacking.

                    • Permissioned Groups in Collaboration Space

                      I often like to use the Collaboration Space for group work where all students in the group can contribute. The challenge is that all students in the class can both view and edit the work of other groups. Especially when I'm doing class competitions, this is not a good thing.

                      In a recent article (link below), there was an API update to allow this, but it's at the IT level, not the teacher level. I want the ability to change these permissions, not just password-protect, as a teacher please!

                        • make ribbon permanently visible in full page mode

                          Can we have the option to make the ribbon permanently visible when in full page mode instead of having to enable it each time as it is frustrating when needing the ribbon frequently

                          • A way for a teacher to be able to delete content or pages from an entire classes' notebooks

                            Just a teacher is able to distribute content or pages or sections, it would be great if a teacher could delete those things if they for example, had posted the wrong thing or wanted to update or change what they had already distributed

                                Today the pages are visible for students at the time I distribute the pages in the class notebook. I would like to plan the distributon by setting a day and time - instead of making a memo for myself to distribute at a given time.

                                • I wish the "learning tools" were available from the online class notebook

                                  I prefer my students to work online, or rather via the browser, partly because I don't want to confuse them with the different layouts at this stage (if ever). I like the opportunity to paste news paper articles as "pictures" and would love for my students to be able to use the learning tools to listen to them directly in the browser/online version of OneNote.

                                  • Feedback from Teacher in a different colour/type style

                                    Put simply I would like feedback to offer the same functionality as when one comments on a word document - that is: highlight relevant text; select "add comment" [or Ctrl+Alt+M] and then add a detailed comment which is associated clearly with another author [in this case, the tutor.] Current feedback options are designed around the use of a pen and a touch screen - I do find this very useful in some cases, but for higher level classes, where comment needs to be more detailed, I do not think this is nearly as good as the feedback which I can…

                                      • Can tables in class note books be mergable?

                                        I would like to be able to merge cells in tables added in classnote books rather than saving as spreadsheet and editing.
