  1. 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!!!

      • 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.

        • "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.

            • Sync still takes too long

              Even with just 2 users, the sync experience is variable and nowhere near as consistent with Google Docs. Sometimes the notebook has to be manually synced, other times it works automatically. With more active users in a class notebook the problem is worse.

              To reduce the overhead of a class notebook constantly syncing there could be an option to set how often the teacher would like all users and clients to sync. For example, if the teacher is just sending out a page with instructions for pupils to refer to then the sync frequency can be reduced to a default…

              • 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.

                • Integrate OneDrive into OneNote

                  Having the ability to link OneDrive into OneNote would be great, the idea being when a student signs into to O365 they are able to see their OneDrive files in OneNote and drag them into OneNote. This includes the shared with me files.

                    • 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.

                        • I need the ability to organize studnets into section groups

                          Currently there is no way to organize the student section groups. The student section groups appear in alphabetical order. It would help if we had the option to Group students.

                          • Review Student Work in Section Groups

                            Please allow us to see pages and tabs in section groups in the OneNote App when we are reviewing student work! Currently we can only see tabs in the main notebook, but no tabs in section groups show up. I create a new section group for each unit, so I cannot review student work since it isn't visible. Once again I am forced to return to ON 2016... Pretty please!

                              • feedback - 2 way private conversation / keep a log

                                OneNote and Classnote (and teams) are all missing the ability for staff to provide a log of feedback or a private conversation to the student. Feedback from both student and teacher needs a real investment. Comments on documents is ok but students (and staff) are able to delete comments.

                                A log would be great to be kept and possibly to be hidden.

                                        A synonym feature would be useful - like in Word and Outlook.
