  1. delete a page

    I love that you can add a page/ tab to everyone's notebook very easily. It would be very convenient if we could also delete a page/ tab just as easily. For instance, I accidentally added a page and had to go into each student's notebook and individually delete the page. THank you! I Love Classroom Notebook!

  2. Add a function to send a page to all my students (into their Class Notebooks)

    Dear OneNote developers,

    I am a teacher and MIE Expert for 2015 and 2016 and I have been using OneNote in our school for three years now. I have a suggestion for a functionality that would be great not just for our school but for every teacher using OneNote, especially if they use OneNote Class Notebook in Office 365.

    Very often I place various kinds of worksheets or other kind of study material in our collaboration space / library using OneNote Class Notebook and I want my students to fulfill them individually. I taught all my students how to copy…

  3. Type on top of PDF printout.

    I want to print a PDF of a worksheet to a Class Notebook and have the students "easily" type on top of PDF printouts.
    Currently students can Draw on the worksheet and drag text on top of the worksheet. However, I want students to be able to click a spot on the PDF and then type their response on top of the PDF.

  4. A way for students to submit an assignment and, once submitted, not be able to access it or any other students view it.

    This is a great tool!! We have many faculty that are looking for a way, either here or in SharePoint, to have students submit assignments but then not be able to access them anymore (deadline). Also, no student could view others' assignments. I know students could email the assignment to the faculty; however, they (the faculty) do not want to drag many emails into one spot, they would like the students to "drop" the assignments into a section or folder (SharePoint) that could then no longer be viewed or accessed by them or other students.

  5. To be able to move/copy pages and sections to multiple Notebooks at once ie. distribute to the whole class's notebooks at once

    If I need all the students or a specific group of students to get the pages I need to copy to each or make 29 copies and drag and drop over to the student's note books individually. Being able to select all of the notebooks or sections I want to make a copy to before pressing move/copy would be great. Thanks

  6. Allow parent access to individual student's Notebook

    At the moment, only the teacher and the individual student have access to each student's Notebook. Parents will often ask about their child's progress and what they are specifically doing in class but are not able to see for themselves.

    I am not sure of the best way to implement this but either allow the teacher the ability to add outside users or allow an individual student the ability to add someone themselves.

    I am able to share my Notebook with outside users but it only allows access to my section. I want to be able to allow parent X…

  8. Make a shared Groupwork area for a group within your class

    I would like to be able to set up section/pages within a notebook that can only be edited and/or viewed by a small group within the class.

    e.g. I want 5 groups of 5 students each to have their own private shared area.

    Just having one large shared area for everyone is quite limiting...

  9. OneNote stickers

    I am an elementary teacher and have recently had my students complete an assignment in a class notebook. While leaving comments about their work I thought about how much I'd like an option to insert a sticker. Kids love stickers on their work. Animated stickers would be even cooler to them.

  11. Embed video,Embed video, webpages, and other live content in OneNote

    Embed video,Embed video, webpages, and other live content in OneNote

    Please make it possible to embed an iframe. It would be so powerful for creating interactive textbooks (for example in math with GeoGebraTube) or embed YouTube Videos!
    This is the most wished Feature for me, cause OneNote could become the Standard for new interactive textbooks as it is free on EVERY Plattform!!! webpages, and other live content in OneNote

  12. Next Student button

    Add a button that allows a teacher who is going through students notebooks to advance to the next student notebook without having to click back and choose the notebook from the list of names.

  14. Distribute Group Section

    With the new add-on I can now distribute sections and pages to all my students, but I often make section groups for each new assignment and it would be nice to be able to distribute the whole section group just like I can for sections and pages.

  15. create a teachers eyes only section automatically

    Please consider automating the creation of a teachers only section in the Class Creator. At present I can do this by going in the back end of OneDrive, finding the actual Onenote folder, creating a section and then removing student permissions but it would be far more convenient if it was part of the setup process....ie Collaboration space, content library, student area and teachers only area all as options.

  17. Add more Teachers to notebooks set up with the OneNote setup tool for Teachers

    The new OneNote setup tool for Teachers is fantastic. But I'm getting a lot of requests to add additional teachers to the notebooks created by the tool. Currently not possible as the tool sets Limited Access permissions at the Section Group level.

    Can you add to the setup tool, a process for adding additional teachers. They need to work as a team to help plan their lessons, share class resources and material and access other student "notebooks" (section groups).

  18. Move or copy section group to another notebook

    Would love the ability to move or copy an entire section group to another notebook without having to individually move/copy each section and then create a new section group in the other notebook.

  20. OneNote Online version does not display equations added with the equation editor using the desktop version. Can this be fixed?

    Inserting an equation using the editor (Alt=) on a note using the desktop version does not display in the online version. Just a box with "equation" appears.

    This is a problem for me as a chemistry teacher. I use the equation editor for chemical formulas.

    Can this be fixed?
