Deleting a Distributed Page

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.

        Ahh....stuck in a sync loop "Onenote can't delete until the page has sync'd"

        Sync the page....and still stuck with "Onenote can't delete until the page has sync'd"

        If you want to undo it imidiatly is possible but is it also possible after a few days?

        We definitely need to be able to delete distributed pages in a more efficient way than going through each page. My student teacher just distributed a test on MS Forms by using students individual page. Now, he has to delete each page one by one.

        Definitely need an undo type button...I have tried the undo distribution and it is not effective...keeps trying to sync...and I only pushed out to 3 students to test it. I can’t understand the thinking that teachers wouldn’t want it...we make mistakes and don’t want to have to waste time deleting from each students work!

        Notebook apps will automatically identify distributed pages by logic weather inappropriate and record where posting derived from initially and self delete all attaachments considered inappropriate by teachers standards and will use an app to initiate a reasonable punishment such as late txt or missed call

        you can actually do this already, with the onenote 2013/2016 software, under the tab 'distribute page' you can 'undo distribute page on the bottom tab.  However, there are limitations to this. I think something better is still needed.

        So agree with this...It is tedious to have to go to each students notebook. There should be an undo button or a simple way to see what has been distributed and make changes.

        Agree, you hit the distribute button and then have the 'Oh No!' moment.

        A workaround is to Review Student work, and delete each page individually
