  3. 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…

  4. Create a class notebook based on a template

    I would like to be able to create one notebook that can be used as a template and duplicated - including student sections and pages. This would allow all my classes to have the same set-up in their notebooks without having to manually organise them.

  6. I need the ability to organize studnets into section groups

    Currently there is no way to organize the student section groups. The student section groups appear in alphabetical order. It would help if we had the option to Group students.

  7. Option to merge cells in tables

    Would it be possible for this option to be implemented?
    Currently, the complexity of tables that can be created in OneNote is significantly impaired due to the lack of this option. Tables (E.G. from Microsoft Word) that contain merged cells won't even retain these merged cells if 'copy-and-pasted' into OneNote - the cells will become separated.
    I use OneNote to take notes in lessons. If I am required to make a table that has merged cells, I can't do so. Instead, I have to figure out a way to convey the information in the table effectively without using merged cells.…

  8. 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?

  10. 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.

  11. an email generated when students receive something in their notebook so they know to check it!

    I would like for there to be a way that an email notification appears for the student whenever something is added to their notebook. (almost like an alarm you set on your phone when you need to remember something). This way, students can see feedback almost as soon as it is put in, allowing for more growth opportunities.

  12. 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.

  13. Allow users to color code pages in One Note

    Currently I use OneNote as a bill organizer. Each month includes multiple pages of bills and payment confirmations. I would like to be able to color code the bill pages as desired. Just as the pages can be marked as Read/Unread when the user toggles Ctrl + Q, add a feature for users to choose colors for each page if desired (similiar to choosing cell colors in Word or Excel). This would really, really help this user.

  14. Hide and time tabs/pages

    Hi! When you have built a Notebook through a year, it is great that you can reuse the book next year. It is probably a bit overwhelming for the students though, so a function that lets you hide tabs and pages would have been great. Timing when the pages become visible (and invisible) would have been an even greater tool. Thanks for a product with great potential!

    Would it be possible to add a feature to be able to message all students/groups of students from within onenote class notebook. Would be useful to get info directly to them from the onenote.

  16. Include timers and set work to as a reminder to students.

    Want to be able to set a task or assessment to be completed within a particular time e.g.10 mins. The alarm will alert them that their task should be completed soon. Then will open for that period of time, and submit to the teacher upon completion.

  17. Lock, group and control elements (text blocks, images, etc.)

    As a teacher, I need to have the ability to create daily page templates for use across multiple class periods in the same day. I was so surprised I couldn't lock the text container or group it with the image. This would be a very useful feature.

  18. Option to revise distributed pages from the original notebook.

    I would like to see MS include the ability to revise any distributed lesson content via the original source/notebook. This would save me time having to go to individual classroom notebooks and revising content. Thankyou!

  20. Pushing Pages and Sections

    Pushing pages and sections to students in a class notebook should maintain the same hierarchy structure as the place you are pushing it from. This helps the students stay organized.

    Also, when adding a new section to all students, the color of that section should not be random for each student. It should be one color that the teacher chooses so we can say, "Look at the new section I added called 'Quadratic Equations.' It's the red one."
