  1. 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!!!

  2. 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.

    Thanks for the feedback on this. After distributing pages to students, under the “Distribute Page” menu you can click the Undo option revert the distribution. Note that this option is only available within the current session you distributed the content in. There is no explicit delete option after this because it could potentially delete content added by students to their individual notebooks.

  5. 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!

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. Sync content library across multiple class notebooks

    As a rotary teacher with multiple classes who each have separate class notebooks, many classes have the same documents in their content libraries.

    If I have a document which changes in one content library, I have to copy those changes to each class notebook. I am a music teacher with fingering charts for different instruments. If I tweak a change to one fingering chart in one class' content library, I have to copy these changes to all of the class' content libraries. Quite a process for 8 classes.

    Any way of syncing these changes automatically?

    Thanks for the feedback! Using the “Cross Notebook Distribution…” option under the “Distribute Page” menu in Class Notebook, you can quickly copy content across multiple Class Notebooks simultaneously. Enjoy!

  10. Distribute tab sections

    Hi, could you please create the function that tab sections can be distributed to class notebooks, rather than just pages. Thanks.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  14. Be able to embed and then edit Word/excel documents within OneNote

    Hello,
    Is there any way to Embed a word or excel file rather than just attach the file or have it visible as an image (print to file)?
    It would be great to be able to send a Word document that I have created elsewhere that students can just click and choose to edit it directly onto the page I’ve attached it to? It’s cumbersome for students to have to open up the file, download it, edit it and then they cannot just save it straight back to the page they opened it from.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Insert a video into content library, making it easier for flipping lessons

    For example, if I create an animated lesson in an app like Show Me or I clip a video from YouTube, I want to insert it. However, when I do it now, it gives me just the audio. Or I have to download it to OneDrive or Video Channel--which takes AGES to do (at least in China). If it was easier to add and playback video in notebooks (as opposed to links to YouTube, which is blocked in some countries like China), then we can flip our classrooms easier.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
