  1. Set a time/date for Page Locks

    Include a timed page lock feature that allows teachers to set a time/date for a specific page in OneNote to be locked to all students. This allows teachers to enforce the due date for an assignment that students are working on.

      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.

      • search text in images

        Search for text in images within onenote. Seems obvious but I can't find in existing suggestions. You can do it in evernote so I know it's doable. In fact, one note will automatically convert to text in position in a photo you take, and square up the perspective (if you want, or can keep as photo). I would really like one note to do these 2 things. thanks!

        • default font

          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 in Canvas open in same window

              OneNote should open in-line with the same window from within Canvas LMS just like OneDrive. The whole point of Canvas is to keep students in the same single window!

              • Enable iframe embedding to embed live content into OneNote

                This suggestion is to unify a few other suggestions. I realize that OneNote has made a lot of progress in terms of embedding content but a lot of helpful content is excluded because OneNote does not allow iframe embedding.
                This feature is partially possible by using Sway as a wrapper but it gives mixed results. E.g. an iframe inside a Sway on a OneNote page will open separately in a browser when using OneNote for Windows 10, but will open on the OneNote page when using OneNote Online.
                It would be very useful if one could do that directly in…

                • Make the sync error more noticeable

                  When there is a sync error, it shows up as a subtle same-colour exclamation icon in the top right of the window. This is very easy to overlook. Sync errors on Onenote should be way more prominent because we all work on multiple devices and need to know right away if sync is not working.

                  • Embedding documents

                    classroom implementation.

                    I have recently read that OneNote 2016 will no longer be updated. A feature both myself and my colleagues LOVE is the ability to edit word documents, PowerPoints etc and directly save into notebooks. This does not work on the OneNote 10 Windows which our school is encouraging us to switch to due to syncing issues of the 2016 version. This function is amazing.

                      • Students' activity

                        Let it be possible to see the students' activity. If more substance parts were processed already, the lag let it be possible to see who replaces it, who dealt with what last. Let him be allowed to be to be looking for, which sheet worked on, let all of the laopot not be needed always to check out.

                        • Filudskrift

                          Jeg savner at kunne indsætte en "filudskrift" (in Danish). Det virker ikke at indsætte et billede, hvis det eksempelvis er et Worddokument. Man kan i andre versioner af Onenote.

                                    H5P is so powerful, it would be perfect to embed H5P content into OneNote with just simple copy+paste the URL.

                                      • Distribute a section without having OneNote create an untitled page in it.

                                        Distribute a section without having OneNote create an untitled page in it. When I distribute my neatly ordered pages into the section, the students see the blank "untitled page" (that OneNote created automatically) listed first. This throws some students (especially those with learning disabilities) for a loop because it appears like there is no information in the section. PLEASE fix.

                                        • Would really like to be able to replace the staff notebook or the addition of another staff notebook for TEAMS

                                          Sometimes you need more than one notebook for different initiatives. Would like to be able to add more than one notebook in a TEAMS site.
