    • 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.

          • Permettre l'installation d'un ruban sur One Note pour les enfants dyspraxiques et dyslexiques (déjà installable sur Word)

            J’utilise pour mon fils dyspraxique un ruban Word téléchargeable qui permet d'ajouter des fonctions essentielles pour lui en classe comme pour ses devoirs à la maison. Ce ruban s'appelle STUDYS, il gratuit et encore une fois vital pour mon fils.
            Il utilise également One Note en classe mais son utlisation est finalement réduite car le ruban Studys n'est pas installable dans One Note. Il est du coup obligé de travailler sur Word (avec absence d'enregistrement automatique) pour ensuite procéder à une impression virtuelle qui l'oblige à choisir dans une petite fenêtre LA page One nOte de destination (Il utilise comme…

              • distribute pages

                The ability to distribute multiple pages simultaneously would be very useful. For certain materials I like to keep things on separate pages and right now I can only distribute one page at a time.

                • 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…

                    Good day! Please make it possible to block text in OneNote to edit it, rather than the entire sheet.
                    If this function is, then tell me how?
                    Thanks!

                        • Let the possibility to easily set standard layout such as A4/A3/A5... as default for every notebook / section / page

                          It should be a very quick and easy feature to add, and very necessary as well. Every notebook should have the possibility to set a default layout for its pages, in order to make it compatible with all the existing standard printing formats.

                                • It is very difficult to mark and give feedback on student work. Notify students when work is posted

                                  Notify students when work is posted into the classroom for them to complete. Also, marking student work is difficult and time consuming. Perhaps add he comment tool as in Word doc or something more like google docs or google classroom would be great. At present, to give feedback, you need to copy and paste to a word doc, add comments, save and then send back to students. I don't want to write over student work., or have to notify them by mail every time a task is posted.

                                  • Automatic calculater in equation mode, with units

                                    When students type in eg. 2+2= , it will automatically calculate the equation, but this does not happen when you are in equation mode. I want my students always to use the equation mode, but then onenote doesn't automatically calculate the equation, and then the students won't use it. It would be SO helpfull if the equation mode were able to calculate simple equations, WITH units, so the student would learn how to write equations correct with units.

                                    • Deleting Duplicate Pages

                                      It would be so much easier to use this NB if I could delete pages from the review student work tab. I usually don't catch the duplicate pages until later which means I have to delete page by page, notebook by notebook. It's obnoxious bc it takes too long.

                                          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!
