  1. LAST, First

    Being unable to show the list of students by LAST name is really annoying.

    Why can't I choose what order the list appears in?

  2. Clearing login contents for multiple users of Office Apps

    I need help with OneNote/classnotebook login and logout. When student’s login to a Onenote, they are seeing other student's folders under the content library even though that person signed out. They also see any onenotes that person had in their cabinet. I can go to the settings/onenote/reset onenote and turn on the Delete all notebooks and delete login credential when they logout. However, these do not stay turned on for the next person who logs in.

    I've posted our problem in our division yammer. The responses that I get are that they have stopped using Office Apps on the ipads…

  4. Allow teachers to distribute Sections and Section Groups to Individual or Student Groups like they can for page distribution

    Please add the option for "Individual and Group Distribution..." to the New Section Distribution like that which is available for page distribution. Sometimes I want my student groups to have different sections.

  5. Lecture hide and reveal capability

    Sometimes I pose a previously typed question to the class. The question can be seen on the OneNote page For purposes of preparing the OneNote page for future viewing, I also have the answer just below. I do not want the class to see the answer until after I have gotten a response. Having a hide and reveal capability would be nice.

  6. Better Printing

    Current Printing options are horrible, especially when printing a notebook including big multi page PDFs (like a common university script).

    Missing options are especially:

    -Proper scaling (custom, everybode has a different handwriting and uses different zoom settings)
    -Option to Print (annotated) multi page pdfs. Printing should automatically detect an inserted PDF and scale it page to page.

  7. word count

    Add a word count feature similar to what is in MS Word. This would help students make sure they are writing enough for assignments that require a certain length.

  8. Stop the ink from slipping when writing on a PDF or image in OneNote.

    This year I have made extensive use of marking student work using ink (pen) in OneNote on a Surface Pro 4. Makes it very easy to annotate student's work, add comments, highlight etc (and has saved a mountain of printing - the advantages are numerous). However, every now and then the original typed work / image moves and the annotations go out of alignment. I have some frustrated students who are unable to make coherent sense of my annotations.

    It will be great if the annotations could "stick" to the original document / image / pdf and move with the…

  9. Smart Art in OneNote

    You should include the Smart Art feature for students to insert nicely organized charts and diagrams into their notes. Trying to insert shapes and arrows is painful in OneNote.

  11. Give a distribute and lock time limit through OneNote on Class Notebook. This would be great for quizzes and Tests!

    Allow Notebook owners (teachers) to set a distribution time and auto lock time using OneNote-> Class Notebooks. In order to do this through Teams, your Notebooks must have been set up through Teams.

  12. OneNote UWP automatically distribute existing sections and pages to new students.

    We teachers need OneNote UWP to distribute existing sections and pages automatically to new students we add to our classes. Currently, we have to add each section and page, one at a time, to each new student. We need the app to recognize that new students will enroll during the year, and make the process more seamless.

  13. Moving students from one notebook to another

    It would be great if students could be moved from one class notebook to another if they have a schedule change. That way their work is not lost.

  14. Add a calendar tool to OneNote.

    It would be even better if would sync with outlook. I would like my students to be able to see assignments and have an idea of what is coming up in advance from their class notebook.

  15. When distributing pages across notebooks it would be helpful to have the option to distribute to that notebook's content library as well

    We can distribute across notebooks to individual students, why not to the notebooks content libraries as well? Could this be automatic, i.e. each time we distribute to a whole class it also distributes to the content library?

  16. Multiple choice test feature that self marks

    It would be great it you could set up a multiple choice test with the ability to add pictures / video & short answer questions (like Google forms). Then have the answers to be fed into an excel spread sheet. Andrew Stillman a Google Script writer saw the power in forms and wrote a self marking script called Flubaroo which you can use as a add on to get the quiz from the form to self mark and give you some great feedback stats.

    This feature would be great for OneNote and would allow teachers to use it as a…

  20. Have a chemical equation editor in OneNote

    Writing chemical equations with all the subscripts and equation arrows is difficult, but an editor or adding into the math equation editor would help.
