  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  4. 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

  6. 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. Review Student Work - alphabetical Students NOT alphabetical Pages

    Review students work is alphabetical based on the names of your pages... this is NOT helpful...

    Alphabetical students = YES PLEASE

    Alphabetical pages... NO THANKS - or at least an option to switch!!

  10. Distribute page to single student/groups online

    I would like to be able to distribute a page to one student or a group of students while online. I know it's a tool in the app, but I need to be able to do it online.

  11. Review Student Work for iPad.

    I use my iPad Pro to mark assignments in oneNote and provide written formative feedback to my students. It is really inefficient to have to go in and out of every student's notebooks. I would like to be able to review the student work just like i can using the ClassNotebook add in on my computer!

  12. Allow teachers to lock a page across class notebooks

    Allowing teachers to lock pages will let us assess better. For example: I have one page of readings, and another that is a graphic organizer. Students were to fill out the graphic organizer using the readings during class and for homework. I'm going to give an open note quiz today where I want to allow students to access the graphic organizer, but not the readings.

  13. group distribution lists not stored locally - other computers, relative to current workbook selected

    I use a number of different devices to use OneNote with. Currently groups are stored locally on the computer, So I need to re-create them on each device I wish to distribute work to.
    I use similar group names for High, Middle and Low abilities, in each course, year and class. The number of groups becomes too big.
    If you are on a Notebook can you make it so only the groups you see are relative to that notebook. (or cross notebook distribute to other groups)

  14. Enable embedded video (i.e. from YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) within OneNote pages

    I would like to be able to embed video (i.e. from YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) on pages within my OneNote Classroom content library. I have several flipped classroom lessons with handouts that accompany video lessons, but at the moment I have to have students navigate to the web to view the lessons. I would prefer to have embedded video on the page containing the handout so that my students can take notes without having to switch applications.

  15. Ability to distribute pages/content to a "group" tab in the student notebook (not just sections).

    I like that "group" tabs can be easily added to students' individual notebooks (in addition to section tabs), but then I would like to be able to distribute pages/content to the group tab that I created for the students. I couldn't find a way to do this. Thanks for your consideration!

  16. Embed FlipGrid

    I would like to be able to embed a fully functional FlipGrid in OneNote. FlipGrid already has the correct share function with the iframe code.

  18. 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!

  19. Create section groups for the students when I create the Class Notebook, create sections under group sections and remove sections.

    I would like to create section groups for the students when I create the Class Notebook the first time. It would be great if I also at the same time could create the sections I want under the Group section. I also miss the possibility to remove sections.

  20. Create a 'Time Locked' Drop Box

    I would love a drop box for time specific assignments. One that I don't have to go and look at time stamps/pages for history if something was completed on time, etc. A collection point where a final assignment can go and I can get to it when time allows - without worrying if kids are making changes that I need to try to account for.
