  2. Set a time to automatically distribute page

    For the super prepared teacher, the ability to create pages for students and schedule a time for that page to be automatically released would be a wonderful .

    This would be an amazing tool!

    Hey @msonenote , I’d like the ability to be able to right click a section and have an option ‘Print this section’. If the pages could just collate into a pdf or Word doc then for printing then that would be great.

  4. Student "Handouts" editable but not deletable?

    My issue is I create a pdf handout, send it to the students. Inevitably the students either delete the handout or move it around. I would like the handout to be "anchored" to the page but still allow the students to type on top or write on top of it.

  6. Insert comment

    Sometimes I need to write a small note or comment about a certain sentence on the margin of the page, but to know to which sentence or paragraph this note is for , I usually draw an arrow along the whole text till the note. I thought it would be much easier if the program had the feature of inserting a comment ( as the one in Word )

  7. I would like to set colour of tabs in Class notebook for entire class of students

    When I create a class notebook and assign colours to the tabs, I would like all of the students tabs to match mine. As we colour code our units and the class notebook will also match with those students who work on paper.

  8. I want to be able to order sections in class notebook.

    I created sections for each of my students’ class notebook when setting up the class notebook in Teams. However, when i open each student’s class notebook, the sections are not in the same order. I am unable to change the order, the colours of the section tabs are different in each student notebook, and even the order of sections in each notebook is different. I’d like to be able to decide on the order of the sections and ensure these are the same for each student. This would make organisation much easier.

  9. Allow the section group of an individual student to be hidden in teacher view ClassNoteBook

    If a student leaves a group it would be good to be able to hide that student so that the teacher does not see that student in the ClassNotebook. When a lot of changes have taken place you have a lot of redundant students in a notebook.

    It would be good to be able to choose NOT to distribute to hidden students.

    This is different to "delete student" as I want to preserve the work of that student, but they no longer come to this class.

  11. Syncing is needed in Real Time for Collaboration Space in a Class Notebook

    I am attempting to use the collaboration space in a Class Notebook in OneNote. When I tested it with only one user, I found that my syncing was delayed significantly when the other user contributed to the notebook page. The syncing to OneDrive was only triggered when I wrote something on the page. Is there a way to set my OneDrive so that the syncing can occur in real time, rather than only when I write something? This is a feature Google has mastered, and it is causing me to not want to use Microsoft products--even though I think the…

  13. It would be SUPER useful to have pen tools available when a page is maximised 'teacher whiteboard' during remote learning.

    When doing direct teaching with screen share and using the OneNote page maximised as a canvas, it is very frustrating having to swap back and forth when wishing to change pen colour or to highlighter OR just having to keep one colour as frequent min/re-max does everyone's head in.

    If the pen tools were available like the QuickNotes when a page is maximised it would be FABULOUS!!!!

  14. Teacher or presenters need ability to highlight the cursor or pointer.

    When teaching or presenting we need the ability to highlight what we are talking about instead of saying "its right there under that", they will be able to see by seeing the highlighted pointer or cursor.

  15. Insert a fillable PDF or PDF form into a OneNote page

    I'd like to be able to create a PDF form using Adobe Pro DC and then insert that form into OneNote so that the form can still be filled out. Currently, when inserting a PDF with form fields, the forms can't be accessed after inserting into OneNote.

  16. Distribute sections in the order that you write them in

    When you distribute sections to students, onenote tends to put the order that you wrote each section out of wack. Would be nice if it distributed them in exactly the order you wrote, along with being able to choose the colour.
    I find that because each student has their sections in weird orders and different colours compared to other students, this just adds so much confusion when trying to direct them to a section.

  17. Students can't delete feedback

    Currently students can erase teacher content in their own area. This includes any marking and feedback that may have been written on by the teacher. Content added by teachers should not be able to be deleted by students.
