  1. Cross Notebook Distribution

    OneNote needs to have all of the Cross Notebook Distribution options that OneNote 2016 has. Right now, I teach three different sections of the same course. In OneNote, I have to make a copy of the same page in each notebook and distribute the same page three times. In 2016, I only had to make the page once and could distribute it to all three class sections that I have. OneNote 2016 also allows you to make student groups, which is awesome for differentiation. OneNote does not have this option. To me, this is a GAPING hole in the app.

    • 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!!!

      • In the app, allow “File Printout” for all file types (not just PDFs).

          • "section group"

            In one note app, provide the same functions for distributing a new blank section group to all students, and then distributing new blank sections to that group that already exists in one note 2016. I would use some of the enhancements to section groups requested in other threads if they become available, but a first (and hopefully simple and quick step) would be to just port the existing functions over to the new app.

            • 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!

              • Enable Recycle Bin for students in Class Notebooks

                If a student accidentally deletes a single page in a Class Notebook, they have no way to recover it OneNote 2016, OneNote App or in the Online version. The recycle bin is disabled for students in Class Notebooks and single deleted pages that students delete in Class Notebooks do not go to the recycle bin on the teacher side either.

                If this is not possible or for an interim improvement to the way things work, at least add an option to turn on a confirmation for page deletions in Class Notebook and expose a way to setup a default value…

                • sort by last name

                  We DESPERATELY need to be able to sort students in OneNote Class notebook by LAST name. It's such a pain to only be able to do it by first name when our online gradebooks work by last name. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP.

                  • Make it where you can modify or delete an assignment in Class Notebook

                    I am loving the idea that OneNote can connect to my LMS and that I can create assignments. However, sometimes I make mistakes and would like to be able to modify the assignment or delete the assignment. If something goes wrong the only way to do this is very time consuming by going through each individual student's page and deleting the assignment. This is a downfall to the new improvements.

                        • 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.

                              • 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.

                                • Lock entire sections in the student notebooks

                                  I'd like the ability to lock entire sections of a student notebook with one click. At the moment, we have to lock all the pages separately. This can be tedious if students have added extra pages or re-named pages.

                                    • Syncing and Sharing Content Libraries Between Sections

                                      Content Libraries must have the ability to be synced for an educational product. I have multiple sections of the same course, yet they each have their own notebook. This subject was addressed below, but Microsoft seemed to think the "Distribute Content Library" function addressed this issue. It does not; I have distributed the library set-up, but would like to sync them so I do not have to make changes in both libraries as that is incredibly inefficient.

                                      • Pushing Pages and Sections

                                        Pushing pages and sections to students in a class notebook should maintain the same hierarchy structure as the place you are pushing it from. This helps the students stay organized.

                                        Also, when adding a new section to all students, the color of that section should not be random for each student. It should be one color that the teacher chooses so we can say, "Look at the new section I added called 'Quadratic Equations.' It's the red one."

                                        • OneNote split screen feature to open two notes at one time

                                          PLEASE make it possible to do a split screen feature within One Note! So then I could have two notes open at the same time. This would help with studying! OneNote is the only thing I use for school and this would be so helpful. It would then allow me to open up 3 items with the Ipad Split Screen feature.

                                          PLEASE AND THANK YOU!
