  1. Allow teacher to have the option to make a tab not editable in the student section of Class Notebook.

    Making individual student tabs not editable by students but only by teacher can help the student see documentation without the student deleting or changing the information.

    • Lock pages

      After distributing a page to students, I would like to mark and review their work and stop them from editing . Onenote team suggested to copy page to my folder! I have a class of 20, I cannot move all their doc 1 by 1 to the teacher folder or make a copy … it would be a waste of time and space- Teachers should have a padlock - so a Homework/page is locked - Students cannot edit again!

      • The ability to identify student authors who have drawn things in the collaborative workspace.

        Student initials come up when they type something in the collaborative workspace, but they don't when a student draws something. Unfortunately, some students feel the need to draw inappropriate things at times on this page, and it would be nice to be able to easily identify who it was.

        • distribute sections & section groups across class notebooks

          It would be great to be able to distribute sections and section groups by cross notebook distribution like you can with pages. This would save a lot of time.

          • Lock page title

            If a teacher creates a page or more so an assignment, the title of the page needs to be locked.
            When I go to review student work, if a student changes the page title of the assignment then I get a longer list of assignments to choose from and their assignment is under a different name I have to try and find the correct one and grade it separately. If a page is distributed as an assignment or even regularly provide the option or make the title uneditable

                Class Notebook tool: change the distribute page feature to keep page/subpage structure when distributing multiple pages to students.
                Currently, all subpages are "promoted" to the standard page level when they are distributed to students, so that any subpage organization is lost.

                • Chat controls for class notebook

                  The Chat feature in the class notebook (online version) needs a way for teachers in the class to either turn it off, or have a copy of the student chats.

                  • convert and solve math equtions in OneNote 2016 (or Math add-in for 2016)

                    There are multiple math Inking features in the pre installed OneNote for Windows 10.
                    But there are not included in the fee-based office version.
                    There is also a math add-in for office but it does not support the 2016 versions.
                    Please make it work either way.
                    Buying the latest office software has in this case only has disadvantages.

                    • the ability to mass delete a or overwrite a page...

                      The appearance of an mildly inoffensive word in the reflection on someone's glasses on a screenshot that I used on a lesson title page has caused me to have to go and delete every single page from the students files.... Luckily I only distributed it to 120 students... so that meant that once I was in each of the class notebooks I only had to perform 280 clicks and the innocuous problem was solved...
                      280 X 4 = 1120 clicks - excluding the pesky mouse movements/tracking involved...

                      • Lock comments / pages after review

                        Once a teacher has reviewed work through OneNote Class Notebook it is currently possible for students to delete or edit the teachers comments. Here in the UK there is a requirement for teachers to provide evidence that they have marked work. This is typically done by handing over books to another member of staff. This can be emulated by making another staff member a Team Owner. However unlike a paper book it is possible for a student to make it look like a teacher has either not reviewed work or has put something entirely inappropriate in the comments.

                        So I…

                          When a Notebook is created through Teams, it would great if an educator had the ability manage the Notebook through Class Notebook Manage Notebooks. Currently, we have to open the notebook through teams before being able to make any changes.

                          • Distribute Section Groups in Class Notebook At Creation of Notebooks

                            Tabs are NOT enough. Teachers need the ability to not only create tabs but section groups when they create their notebooks. Otherwise you have to go in and create the section groups later and distribute to each class. It is a massive pain. Section groups would allow teachers to create Units and then the tabs w/in that unit are for Notes, Assessments, Handouts, etc.

                                  Would make it easier to roll out content if I could set times/dates for the pages/sections to be rolled out other than remembering to do this before the lesson.

                                    • Teachers should be able to distribute pages to all students from the iPad app as well as the computer

                                      As it is now we are only able to distribute pages to all students from a desktop. It would be much easier if this function were available on the iPad app as well

                                        • Lock out students until grading is complete

                                          I would like the ability to lock out student access to viewing assignments - my school does not have an LMS that we can link to - until all student work has been evaluated.
