In one note app, provide the same functions for distributing a new blank section group to all students, and then distributing new blank sections to that group that already exists in one note 2016. I would use some of the enhancements to section groups requested in other threads if they become available, but a first (and hopefully simple and quick step) would be to just port the existing functions over to the new app.

The ability to see section groups in the options when reviewing work is also essential. Having created them in 2016 I can not move to the windows 10 app despite preferring the UI as there are too many missing features that I have come to rely on. From a users perspective it would have been better to reduce the disparity between versions before announcing the end of 2016 development.
