  1. Office Lens would be a great app to use with Onenote class notebooks.

    Unfortunately, Office lens doesn't work with office 365 accounts!! This is really annoying- our whole school uses office 365- if I want students to photograph their project work at the moment, they have to either email their pics to themselves, download them and then re upload them into their class notebooks. If they could take a pic, and upload it DIRECTLY to their class notebook, they'd be much more likely to do it! at the moment, they cant be bothered. Class notebooks were a great step forward for onenote- this would make it even better

  2. Mapping students in OneNote 2016 is much more efficient than in Windows 10 OneNote. It would be great if that was available before OneNote

    Mapping students in OneNote 2016 is much more efficient than in Windows 10 OneNote. It would be great if that was available before OneNote 2016 was no longer supported. I would also love the option of having the ability to have the sections be at the top instead of on the side. Small computes lose too much space.

  3. Edmodo LMS not listed on OneNote Online Class Notebook Connections Menu option

    Microsoft state that OneNote will connect to the Edmodo LMS, however when using OneNote Online on a Mac computer. Can the Edmodo LMS be added to the OneNote > Class Notebook > Connections > Connections > Select Your LMS or SIS menu please?

  4. Lock pages

    After distributing a page to students, I would like to mark and review their work and stop them from editing . Onenote team suggested to copy page to my folder! I have a class of 20, I cannot move all their doc 1 by 1 to the teacher folder or make a copy … it would be a waste of time and space- Teachers should have a padlock - so a Homework/page is locked - Students cannot edit again!

  5. Add Connections button to LMS in the Class Notebook Add-in within OneNote UWP (Windows 10 Universal App)

    I have been using OneNote 2016 with the Class Notebook Add-In that has The Connections button to connect to an LMS such as Schoology, Map Class Notebook, and Map Students for grading within OneNote. But I do not see those same features on the Class Notebook Add-In with the OneNote UWP Windows 10 App. Please add these same features to the OneNote UWP Windows 10 App.

  6. Incorporating Turnitin.com

    I would like a plagiarism check function for grading essays. Currently my school uses Turnitin.com but I don’t prefer the grading features (I want to be able to hand write my comments like we can in OneNote).

  7. Math Assistant needs an On/Off switch

    Math Instructors are asking for the capability to turn this feature off for assessments and quizzes. Also will Math Assistant be available in the desktop version?

  8. Allow teacher to have the option to make a tab not editable in the student section of Class Notebook.

    Making individual student tabs not editable by students but only by teacher can help the student see documentation without the student deleting or changing the information.

  9. Class Notebook Manage Notebooks created through Teams

    Class Notebook Manage Notebooks created through Teams
    When a Notebook is created through Teams, it would great if an educator had the ability manage the Notebook through Class Notebook Manage Notebooks. Currently, we have to open the notebook through teams before being able to make any changes.

  11. Teachers should be able to distribute pages to all students from the iPad app as well as the computer

    As it is now we are only able to distribute pages to all students from a desktop. It would be much easier if this function were available on the iPad app as well

  12. learning tools reading math symbols

    We would like to use OneNote to read math tests except it doesn't seem to read the math symbols from a PDF document using the immersive reader.

  13. please reinstate the insert printout function in ClassOneNotes created through

    Please reinstate the ability to 'insert a printout' in the Class OneNotes created through MS classroom. This function has been modified to not embed the associated file...this means the printout can not be opened or edited and refreshed from within OneNote.

    This was one of the BEST features of OneNote for class use.

    If it cant be reinstated then at least provide the ability for it to be an option for Office admins or teachers to set when managing a classroom.

  14. locking down student work title

    When I create an assignment and distribute to Ss, I tell them not to change the title of the page, but invariably someone (often more than one someone) renames their assignment page in their individual space. This means I have to do hunt and peck for assignments when doing "review student work." Could we have feature to "lock down" assignment title so it all shows up in one place when we do review for grading ease? Thanks!

  15. Permissioned Groups in Collaboration Space

    I often like to use the Collaboration Space for group work where all students in the group can contribute. The challenge is that all students in the class can both view and edit the work of other groups. Especially when I'm doing class competitions, this is not a good thing.

    In a recent article (link below), there was an API update to allow this, but it's at the IT level, not the teacher level. I want the ability to change these permissions, not just password-protect, as a teacher please!

  16. OneNote Issue: distributes same page multiple times

    Each time I try to distribute several pages, it keeps distributing the same page over and over again. So, for example, if I have 4 pages to post to a class notebook, I distribute pages 1, then 2. When I try to submit 3, it distributes page 2 instead!!!

  17. Connect to LMS on Mac

    The Class Notebook connection to an LMS is invaluable and the fact that you are not able to do it from the Mac version is a real pain. It is a major stumbling block for full adoption at our school where some teachers use Mac and others use Windows PCs

  19. Turn in and Editing Tool

    It would be great for grading papers if there were a drag and drop style editing tool like "Turnitin" has. When a student uploads a Word document or pdf of a paper in a shared Class Notebook, the teacher would have a menu of tools to drag and drop "editing symbols" onto that document. Each editing symbol would have an explanation of the basic grammar, spelling, or punctuation issue that would appear when the student hovered over or clicked on the editing symbol. This would speed up grading incredibly.

  20. Microsoft Forms embedded in a Class Notebook

    I would like to be able to create a quiz using Microsoft Forms, embed that in a Class Notebook and distribute it into pupil notebooks.
    Each pupil could then complete the quiz within their Class Notebook without needing to use a different app or a browser.
