  1. 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.

  2. Add digits to the ruler

    Ruler is good helper. But there are no digits on it. It´s difficult to draw line 10 cm (inch) long. It´s so hard to count small lines on ruler. Please add digits to the ruler.

  3. Collaboration Space, students deleting sections...

    Teachers should be able to lock sections inside of the collaboration space so that students cannot delete sections in the collaboration space on accident (or on purpose).

  4. 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.

    In the OneNote app and Class Notebooks there is no ability to right click and flip the document from landscape to portrait. The ability is on the desktop app

  7. read mode should be added

    we know that onenote could be edited, but ,there should be an READ ONLY MODE, that you could just read and use your finger to slide and tap, just like PDF, that could be easier for presentation and lecture show.

  8. Doubletap the ruler to flip it 90 degree

    For me as an civil engineer most of the time I draw i just need the ruler to be either 0 degree or 90 degree. and it is very annoying that every time i have to flip the ruler i have to adjust the ruler manually. I would save a ton of work if I could just double tap the ruler to flip it 90 degree. Would be a small but for me a very efficient feature.

  9. Option to merge cells in tables

    Would it be possible for this option to be implemented?
    Currently, the complexity of tables that can be created in OneNote is significantly impaired due to the lack of this option. Tables (E.G. from Microsoft Word) that contain merged cells won't even retain these merged cells if 'copy-and-pasted' into OneNote - the cells will become separated.
    I use OneNote to take notes in lessons. If I am required to make a table that has merged cells, I can't do so. Instead, I have to figure out a way to convey the information in the table effectively without using merged cells.…

  10. 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!

  14. Saving customised stickers

    Customising stickers is great in OneNote but can there be a way to save them as we use marking codes in our school and not having to type these over and over again would cut down the time it takes to add stickers

  15. Drag from OneDrive to OneNote

    Please allow teachers / students to drag documents of any kind from OneDrive online to the OneNote App. Currently I have to save the documents to my computer and then drag them to OneNote. I don't understand why these programs don't work together.

  17. 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.

  20. 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."
