  1. Cross Notebook Distribution

    OneNote needs to have all of the Cross Notebook Distribution options that OneNote 2016 has. Right now, I teach three different sections of the same course. In OneNote, I have to make a copy of the same page in each notebook and distribute the same page three times. In 2016, I only had to make the page once and could distribute it to all three class sections that I have. OneNote 2016 also allows you to make student groups, which is awesome for differentiation. OneNote does not have this option. To me, this is a GAPING hole in the app.

    • 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.

      • Sync still takes too long

        Even with just 2 users, the sync experience is variable and nowhere near as consistent with Google Docs. Sometimes the notebook has to be manually synced, other times it works automatically. With more active users in a class notebook the problem is worse.

        To reduce the overhead of a class notebook constantly syncing there could be an option to set how often the teacher would like all users and clients to sync. For example, if the teacher is just sending out a page with instructions for pupils to refer to then the sync frequency can be reduced to a default…

        • Integrate OneDrive into OneNote

          Having the ability to link OneDrive into OneNote would be great, the idea being when a student signs into to O365 they are able to see their OneDrive files in OneNote and drag them into OneNote. This includes the shared with me files.

          • Review Student Work in Section Groups

            Please allow us to see pages and tabs in section groups in the OneNote App when we are reviewing student work! Currently we can only see tabs in the main notebook, but no tabs in section groups show up. I create a new section group for each unit, so I cannot review student work since it isn't visible. Once again I am forced to return to ON 2016... Pretty please!

            • 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.

              • feedback - 2 way private conversation / keep a log

                OneNote and Classnote (and teams) are all missing the ability for staff to provide a log of feedback or a private conversation to the student. Feedback from both student and teacher needs a real investment. Comments on documents is ok but students (and staff) are able to delete comments.

                A log would be great to be kept and possibly to be hidden.

                • Icon to show locked pages

                  There should be an icon in the pages section to show if a page is locked. This would easily inform both teachers and students.

                      A synonym feature would be useful - like in Word and Outlook.

                      • search text in images

                        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!

                          I would like to be able to change my default font. Especially because size 11 is too small to show on the board for a class. Even at least changing the default size would be great.

                              OneNote should open in-line with the same window from within Canvas LMS just like OneDrive. The whole point of Canvas is to keep students in the same single window!

                              • 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…

                                      • Would really like to be able to replace the staff notebook or the addition of another staff notebook for TEAMS

                                        Sometimes you need more than one notebook for different initiatives. Would like to be able to add more than one notebook in a TEAMS site.

                                        • Add customizable auto-correct features to OneNote app

                                          Currently, the desktop OneNote 2016 version has this feature. Auto-correct will allow you to customize shortcuts such as ??=¿Qué?
                                          It saves time and this feature should be available on the app.
