  1. Create a class notebook based on a template

    I would like to be able to create one notebook that can be used as a template and duplicated - including student sections and pages. This would allow all my classes to have the same set-up in their notebooks without having to manually organise them.

  2. Be able to see the time a student last edited something

    If you want to see if a student completed something by a particular time, it would be helpful to have some way to see the TIME & DATE when the last edits were made to a page

  3. Undo section distribution

    Sometimes we make mistakes! It would be amazing if we could undo section distribution like we can page distribution.

  4. Add rotation for uploaded images

    When students upload images they are not always straight, so it would be great to be able to rotate them.

  6. Shortcuts

    We should have some keyboard shortcuts so we could change between pens and erasers without taking so long time. Usually the drawing softwares have it and it's the only stuff i'd rather use theses softwares than one note

  7. Allow students to type in their work on charts, etc, instead of just using draw feature

    The draw feature is hard for students to use. It would be easier for them to be able to type in their responses on charts etc.

  9. Distribute pages to students individually from one class notebook to another

    It would be great if it was possible to distribute pages to students (individually og groups) from one class notebook to another. We often work in different notebooks, and that would save us some time if we were able to distribute directly to students (individually) in another notebook.

  13. edit documents in classnote book

    Make it so that students can edit documents within their section in class notebook. At the moment it seems that learners have to download, edit and save back to class notebook, unless I'm missing something. This just creates an additional barrier for them.

  14. Onenote - Give permission to groups of students to access collaboration section

    I can add individual students to a collaboration section but I have created student groups. Is it possible to add students by the group names rather than individually to a collaboration section?

  15. Retract Page

    There needs to a be an option to retract pages as well as distribute pages. If one mistake is made when distributing a page, there is no other way to fix it than to go into each and every folder and change it manually. If we could edit all or retract all and start over, it would save a lot of time.

  18. Auto-generated Flash Cards from Notes

    While a student takes notes, they color-code the "term" one color and the "definition" another color. When the student selects "Generate Flash Cards", the application automatically generates a flash card deck from those designated notes.

  19. Dark Mode pen flipping needs to not flip when writing on a printout

    I use light mode but some of my students prefer dark mode. OneNote is good at flipping pen colour black for white etc. to mean I can still see what a dark mode user is writing on a "normal" notebook page.

    But a lot of the time I am inserting worksheets (originally word docs) as printouts. These are black on white, and remain as black on white whether you are in dark mode or light mode.

    Problem is, a student in dark mode selects "black" pen to write on the white printout. I'm in light mode, so "black" gets flipped…
