  1. 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!

    • 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.

      • 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.

          Please allow me the option to delete a distributed page without having to go into each student's section.

            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.

          • 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.

            • 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!

              • 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!

                • I wish the "learning tools" were available from the online class notebook

                  I prefer my students to work online, or rather via the browser, partly because I don't want to confuse them with the different layouts at this stage (if ever). I like the opportunity to paste news paper articles as "pictures" and would love for my students to be able to use the learning tools to listen to them directly in the browser/online version of OneNote.

                  • 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!

                      With about half my classes using Mac computers I would really, really appreciate being able to give them access to Learning Tools.

                        • 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!

                          • Add a function to send a page to all my students (into their Class Notebooks)

                            Dear OneNote developers,

                            I am a teacher and MIE Expert for 2015 and 2016 and I have been using OneNote in our school for three years now. I have a suggestion for a functionality that would be great not just for our school but for every teacher using OneNote, especially if they use OneNote Class Notebook in Office 365.

                            Very often I place various kinds of worksheets or other kind of study material in our collaboration space / library using OneNote Class Notebook and I want my students to fulfill them individually. I taught all my students how to copy…

                            • Lock teacher mark up comments from deletion

                              When I give formative feedback onto a students workbook page, I don't want that to be deleted. If the student wants to edit the page after I have marked it then they should create a copy of that page so my feedback stays as evidence of assessment and progression of learning.

                              • A way for students to submit an assignment and, once submitted, not be able to access it or any other students view it.

                                This is a great tool!! We have many faculty that are looking for a way, either here or in SharePoint, to have students submit assignments but then not be able to access them anymore (deadline). Also, no student could view others' assignments. I know students could email the assignment to the faculty; however, they (the faculty) do not want to drag many emails into one spot, they would like the students to "drop" the assignments into a section or folder (SharePoint) that could then no longer be viewed or accessed by them or other students.

                                  If I need all the students or a specific group of students to get the pages I need to copy to each or make 29 copies and drag and drop over to the student's note books individually. Being able to select all of the notebooks or sections I want to make a copy to before pressing move/copy would be great. Thanks

                                  • Allow parent access to individual student's Notebook

                                    At the moment, only the teacher and the individual student have access to each student's Notebook. Parents will often ask about their child's progress and what they are specifically doing in class but are not able to see for themselves.

                                    I am not sure of the best way to implement this but either allow the teacher the ability to add outside users or allow an individual student the ability to add someone themselves.

                                    I am able to share my Notebook with outside users but it only allows access to my section. I want to be able to allow parent X…

                                      • OneNote stickers

                                        I am an elementary teacher and have recently had my students complete an assignment in a class notebook. While leaving comments about their work I thought about how much I'd like an option to insert a sticker. Kids love stickers on their work. Animated stickers would be even cooler to them.
