    • Core Office Apps - live editing

      Having the ability to edit Powerpoint / Word / Excel documents live in OneNote without downloading the documents would be great so OneNote / ClassnoteBook becomes the platform.

      Microsoft, if you invest a lot of time into this, you can certainly compete with Google Classroom.

        • Customize tags an search/filter for tags in OneNote App

          In OneNote 2016 we were able to set tags, customize them and the most important thing: we were able to search and filter for them.

          This is right now not possible and thus our ToDo and Checklists get useless...

          Please implement the funtion again.Thanks

          • Assessment locks

            I would really like to be able to password protect sections within my students' Class Notebook eg. for assessment purposes. This would be fantastic for forward planning. What would be even better is to be able to set a password to open in 'assessing' mode and then have a new password kick in when the assessment has passed. Or even a time that it will be available so students aren't able to access it outside of lesson times.
            In doing this, assessment will be truly locked down.

            • Distribute Section Groups in Class Notebook At Creation of Notebooks

              Tabs are NOT enough. Teachers need the ability to not only create tabs but section groups when they create their notebooks. Otherwise you have to go in and create the section groups later and distribute to each class. It is a massive pain. Section groups would allow teachers to create Units and then the tabs w/in that unit are for Notes, Assessments, Handouts, etc.

              • Sync Outlook Calendar to OneNote

                I would like the ability to have the Outlook calendar I have created for my class synced inside of the class notebook. This would allow my students to see due dates and daily course information all in one spot.This would help my students manage their time and help me plan my weekly lessons all within the class notebook.

                • Allow teachers to distribute Sections and Section Groups to Individual or Student Groups like they can for page distribution

                  Please add the option for "Individual and Group Distribution..." to the New Section Distribution like that which is available for page distribution. Sometimes I want my student groups to have different sections.

                  • Being able to delete a section from all students folders

                    If you setup the onenote with the 4 default sections accidentally but really don't use some of them. It would be nice to be able to delete it from all students folders at once. Especially in the initial setup stages

                      • Make it possible to copy section groups, not just move them

                        You can't copy a section group, you can only move it. This is very annoying.

                          I have noticed that a huge range of templates are available on OneNote 2016, but there is no option to use a template on the newer version, OneNote for windows 10. As a student this would be an incredibly useful feature.

                          • I would like to have the ability to plan when pages are distributed to students

                            Today the pages are visible for students at the time I distribute the pages in the class notebook. I would like to plan the distributon by setting a day and time - instead of making a memo for myself to distribute at a given time.

                                      • Teaching Planner

                                        The ability to set up a simple teaching planner similar to the paper based books many teachers use.
                                        It would be ideal if we could choose the number of periods in a day and then input our timetable and then it could populate a page for a day with classes that day and teachers could plan out lessons paper free.

                                        • Be able to use the Camera in OneNote to take a photo

                                          Inserting an image directly from the camera. OneNote allows recording of video and audio but does NOT allow you to directly insert a snapshot from the camera.
