  2. turn off math assistant

    Math teachers do not like the math assistant in OneNote for students, especially the younger sturdents. We need the ability to turn off this feature PERMANENTLY and not just for a period of time.
    Also the turn off feature does not get turned off in the iPad version of OneNote

  3. Round Highlighter for vertical highlighting

    Can we please have round highlighters? The chisl tip makes highlighting vertically very difficult.
    As a maths teacher I often want to highlight around shapes, on graphs, the number 1? Anything vertical is very difficult though.

  4. Class Notebook

    I am not able to track the work uploaded by my students while using Class Notebook at a glance.

    Appreciate if there is a notification enabled when the teacher or student uploads the work.

    Moreover if there can be a report created for uploads done by students.

  6. LAST, First

    Being unable to show the list of students by LAST name is really annoying.

    Why can't I choose what order the list appears in?

  9. Adaptive release

    It would be extremely useful and would save a lot of time for educators and online course developers if we could schedule a future time for a page in a Class Notebook to automatically be copied into the Content Library and distributed to students.

  11. An option that teachers could see if the file/HW assigned was viewed or a when the student was 'last active on One Note'

    This was available when I was in University when we used 'Moodle'. It would inform teachers if students are engaging with the work assigned on One Note.

  12. Distributing Multiple Pages

    Distributing multiple pages needs improvement! It would be idea if I could distribute a section, INCLUDING THE PAGES, to all students at once. Without that, it would also be nice if I could distribute multiple pages and have them show up in students' notebooks in the same order that they were in the original. Right now, I have to choose between distributing each page individually, or sorting the notebooks of many, many students.

  13. Syncing/Mirroring distributed pages with the corresponding page in my content library

    Please add a feature into OneNote whereby, once a page has been distributed to student folders from the content library, if you need to into your content library and make specific changes to a page that has already been distributed, that those changes get synced to the distributed page in the student's folders already. As teachers, we often make something and need to tweak it and it would be nice if these tweaks and changes could get synced to the associated page in the student's folder. Like mirroring it? Right now this cannot happen so if I must make a…

  14. Make input from teacher permanent/uneraseable

    Somehow can input in student notebooks from the teacher account be preserved/make permanent or uneraseable? I love that we can lock pages, but sometimes I want students to be able to add more to/edit their original page, but I don't want to risk a kid erasing my notes to make it look like they got full credit later on.

  15. Give a distribute and lock time limit through OneNote on Class Notebook. This would be great for quizzes and Tests!

    Allow Notebook owners (teachers) to set a distribution time and auto lock time using OneNote-> Class Notebooks. In order to do this through Teams, your Notebooks must have been set up through Teams.

  16. PDF Support

    I work a lot with LaTex and PDFs. All the exercise sheets of my classes come in PDF. I miss


    • being able to slice PDFs in OneNote to make space for notes (for example with the "insert or remove extra space" tool)

    • inserting the actual PDFs and not JPG (to enable hyperlinks for example)

  17. Add timestamps to the version history

    This would allow teachers to see whether students completed their work by the assigned deadline.

  19. Classroom Program that is an easy understandable mix of Teams and OneNote

    Teams and OneNote are too difficult to understand for most of primary school pupils (and sometimes even for the teachers...).
    Please create a very easy and very understandable "classroom" program that connects basic functions of Teams and OneNote in one program.
    I have already a "classroom" program in mind, please get in touch if interested.
    Kind regards from Austria!

  20. Better Printing

    Current Printing options are horrible, especially when printing a notebook including big multi page PDFs (like a common university script).

    Missing options are especially:

    -Proper scaling (custom, everybode has a different handwriting and uses different zoom settings)
    -Option to Print (annotated) multi page pdfs. Printing should automatically detect an inserted PDF and scale it page to page.
