  1. Student passwords in class notebook

    Allow teachers to remove student passwords in class notebook or prevent students from adding these to their work in OneNote in the first place.

    With students being able to set passwords and lock teachers out, teachers can't check in on student work.

  2. Temporarily hiding students' pages while correcting assignments.

    As a teacher I really appreciate the option of locking the students' pages (under the Review students work in Class Notebook). However, I miss the option of hiding the pages while e.g. correcting the students' assignments.
    This will ensable me to ensure a homogenous practise.

    I hope you will consider this improvement.

  3. smooth ink replay

    Currently, when you replay the ink strokes, the individual strokes appear as a whole. For the creation of screencasts, it would be nice, if the individual strokes would be built piecemeal from sub-segments, so that the impression of a realistic writing would arise.

  4. Cross Notebook Distribution to Content library and Teacher only!

    I would LOVE to be able to distribute content library documents to all my notebooks of the same course section without having to use Move/Copy, which takes much longer.

    We DESPERATELY need to be able to sort students in OneNote Class notebook by LAST name. It's such a pain to only be able to do it by first name when our online gradebooks work by last name. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP.

  6. improved performance when editing

    need to have page updates distributed instantly. Case where a teacher is working with pupils and want to review work they are doing on a Class One not page. Currently can take 30 seconds for the teacher to see an update. Also when working in the collaboration section same poor performance seems to be a feature. happy to provide more details

  7. Create Hidden Section for ONLY Teachers to see.

    This could be useful for teachers sharing notebooks, or even if a teacher has to take a leave of absence.

  9. 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.

  10. Create a centralized link for students to access a distributed page/section

    You post a link to an assignment on your Welcome page. Students click on it and it takes them to a distributed page/section in their part of the notebook. Groups could come in and click a link and go straight to work on their individual or collaboration page. THINK OF THE TIME SAVED! If you're going to have a "Welcome" landing page, why not have links to get them started?

  11. Allow Teacher only sections to be copied from one class notebook to another

    I spent weeks creating content in my personal notebook over the summer. I had to re-create it twice as I am teaching two sections of the same class. I will teach it three more times this year. I will waste a lot of my precious time recreating work that has already been created. Please allow me to copy the teacher only section from one class notebook to another.

  14. reordering the students in your Class OneNote

    I've merged two classes into one Class notebook and the students are alphabetically ordered. I'd like to be able to re-order the students in the list I see so that one class lists above or below the other, or in fact, any order I choose. Is this possible?

  15. Paint-like functionality

    Coming from a student, OneNote is a fantastic tool that has helped me greatly reduce my paper usage.

    However, if drawing was more fleshed out, especially for my surface pen, the program would be perfect. A color fill tool (paint bucket) like in Microsoft paint would make flowcharts and illustrations much easier to create. Also, the ability to pick a color from an image for a pen color would be amazing as well.

    Thank you for listening!

  19. I need the ability to organize studnets into section groups

    Currently there is no way to organize the student section groups. The student section groups appear in alphabetical order. It would help if we had the option to Group students.

  20. Activate PBS Kids on Roku

    The PBS KIDS Roku channel provides a mix of videos and full-length episodes of 29 children's PBS programs. Many series, such as Clifford the Big Red Dog, offer only sets of clips. In this case, four videos of 11 to 20 clips each, each 30 to 40 minutes in length. Other shows-Cat in the Hat, for example-have both complete and video sets. Visit the website https://www.activatepbs.com
