      • Merge Cells in tables in OneNote

        The option to merge cells in a table would be great particularly when creating timetables etc, you can block out several cells.

        • I would like to have the ability to plan when pages are distributed to students

          Today the pages are visible for students at the time I distribute the pages in the class notebook. I would like to plan the distributon by setting a day and time - instead of making a memo for myself to distribute at a given time.

          • Update Distributed Pages after they are distributed

            I love being able to distribute pages to students however it would be very helpful if changes that I make to those pages were automatically updated after they were distributed.

            • Being able to delete a section from all students folders

              If you setup the onenote with the 4 default sections accidentally but really don't use some of them. It would be nice to be able to delete it from all students folders at once. Especially in the initial setup stages

              • Ability to screencast in OneNote

                Currently one is able to save screen clippings, record audio, record video, but there is not a screencast option that allows you to record "whiteboarding" within OneNote.

                "When we solve a math problem, we talk about it as we write; we'd like written & audio captured into a screencast video" ^Cal

                • Teaching Planner

                  The ability to set up a simple teaching planner similar to the paper based books many teachers use.
                  It would be ideal if we could choose the number of periods in a day and then input our timetable and then it could populate a page for a day with classes that day and teachers could plan out lessons paper free.

                  • Add a notification when student assignments are turned in/need to be graded

                    having to scroll up and down my classes to see which boxes have been bolded is not an efficient use of my time. I would like to see a feature that allowed the students to submit their work in a specific location in OneNote, that is organized by class, that also organizes completed work that needs to be graded.

                    • Consistency across all versions of OneNote and ClassNotebook

                      There are such huge inconsistencies in OneNoteOnline, ClassNoteBook, OneNote Desktop App. It means you are juggling between them all to achieve one thing. Not a happy state of affairs. Sometimes achieving noting as a consequence.
                      For example:

                      The lack of Forms for quizzes in one and not another.
                      The lack of Connections in one and not another
                      The lack of ClassNotebook tab online

                      There is a large list but just one solution, every feature across all versions.

                      • Gradebook section

                        Add a gradebook sectione

                        It would be great if OneNote for Classrooms had a gradebook section/system similar to the LMS. For us, having this feature would allow more faculty members to use OneNote exclusively.

                        • Mindmap add-in

                          It would be great if teachers and students can create mindmaps on their OneNote pages. A great app for that would be mindmeister.

                          • Real-time collaboration (Class Notebook syncing is slow)

                            Class notebooks require a change so that real-time collaboration is a thing. When using my class notebook in class with my 1:1 ratio of computers, we have many sync errors on pages, as well it takes time for student's input to sync to the notebook.

                            • 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.

                                Right now we can only set password protection a section only.
                                It would be nice if we can set password protection for page and subpages too

                                      Being able to delete pages you have sent out to the students without having to individually go through each students note book to delete it! Being able to tidy up the note book would be great!

                                        Class Notebook tool: change the distribute page feature to keep page/subpage structure when distributing multiple pages to students.
                                        Currently, all subpages are "promoted" to the standard page level when they are distributed to students, so that any subpage organization is lost.
