    • Icon to show locked pages

      There should be an icon in the pages section to show if a page is locked. This would easily inform both teachers and students.

      • 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.

        • marking

          give the teacher the ability to mark the work without having to write over the top of the students work, as I have wanted to print the work after marking, but not have the ink printed also, maybe give us a option to review and mark work that falls under the same option as the word comments, where we can turn them off or on

          • 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."

            • Add the comment feature in Word to Classroom OneNote for Teacher Feedback

              Can we please have a comment system in Classroom OneNote the same as the comment system in Word. This highlights a piece of text and locks the comment to the text so that if things are moved on the page the comment follows the text.

              • Archive Class Notebooks with no student access

                When a class is done and the teacher wants to keep the Class Notebook, but not allow students continued access - it would be good to have an Archive option which is closed to student access. This would alleviate issues of students going into the wrong notebooks from previous classes/years and also ensure the teacher can modify the notebook is he/she wishes without concern of a student being confused. Please enable an Archive Notebook function that is closed to students.

                • Multiple page distribution from Windows 10 App

                  Multiple page distribution from OneNote 2016 is now wholly unreliable. Recently distributed multiple pages and 72 hours later students still had not got the pages. Major disruption to teaching! Same content had to be distributed page by page from Windows 10 App. Time consuming! When is multiple page distribution coming to the Windows 10 App. LONG OVERDUE ...

                  • Comment on student work.

                    Being able to review student work is great but it is really clumsy and time consuming to comment on student work/ make specific comments. It needs to function in much the same way as a word document. As a result, I am still using Google classroom for student assignment work due to the superior functionality of the Google Classroom product.

                      • set notification via e-mail when student update a specific page or section

                        It would be good to set notification via e-mail to the listed email(s) when student/stuff member update a specific page or section - not in the whole notebook. It is good for a long time projects.
                        And the 2nd part - send e-mail to the student/stuff member when teacher/manager change this page or section (when the content is commented or corrected).
                        Thank You

                            The notebook is automatically updated with a section group for every member of the group who has access. This is a 30 person team and we do not need these sections, but when I delete them they just come back.

                            • Distribute read only pages in ClassNotebook

                              I want to distribute my evalutations of the students in Class Notebook, that I later can update during the school year so my students always can see how they perform in the curriculum. I've thought of doing a template that I can distribute to the students notebooks and then update them accordingly. However, it is (of course) essential that these pages is read only for the students. Please make it possible to "lock down" distributed pages.

                              • 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.

                                    I would like to be able to change my default font. Especially because size 11 is too small to show on the board for a class. Even at least changing the default size would be great.

                                      • OneNote UWP automatically distribute existing sections and pages to new students.

                                        We teachers need OneNote UWP to distribute existing sections and pages automatically to new students we add to our classes. Currently, we have to add each section and page, one at a time, to each new student. We need the app to recognize that new students will enroll during the year, and make the process more seamless.

                                        • Ability to distribute multiple pages at once in online version of Class Notebook

                                          Distributing multiple pages at once with a simple check box tool in the online version of Class Notebook would save a significant amount of time.
