Un-distributing a page from a class notebook
It would be sooo useful to be able to mass delete or un-distribute a page from a class notebook. When I make changes to a page I have already distributed, it means I distribute again, and then students have to delete the original themselves (and many are unable to do this).
This has been fully rolled out to the Windows 10 app, web, iPad and Mac versions of the Class Notebook Toolbar.
Tweet announcing full rollout is here: https://twitter.com/mtholfsen/status/1240331072484720640?s=20

Now, if only the OneNote app (formerly OneNote 2016) Class Notebook Addin was able to have the un-distribute button. Please!
can you update a distributed page instead of re-distributing it again?

Can you delete a SECTION? (Handouts, Quizzes etc) and can you rearrange the ORDER of the sections..
I am running version 16.35 on my Mac. There is no update in the App Store???? This option is not available in my toolbar??? I do notice that there is a 'Delete Page' option in the web version but still can't find a way to manage unwanted sections in students section groups??

To my knowledge this is now a reality. Distribute Page > Delete Page > Choose Section > Choose Page > Delete.
Worked beautifully for me today. So pleased that feature is there.

I'm glad to see this post. I'd like to share what I posted elsewhere on this site here. I do this to show the frustration we teachers have because of the delay in seeing this feature rolled out.
My district left another LMS that had this simple feature. People make mistakes. I teach three classes of the same subject with an average above 25 students. I would have to go into over 75 students and correct my mistake that includes three pages each. We were told how Microsoft is making tremendous efforts to make changes quickly to respond to teacher concerns. Sheri shared this idea on January 16, 2017! Some OneNote Team (User Researcher) ADMIN responded on August 2017. This appears "Completed" whatever that means. Yet on November 20, 2019, Stuart still had the same concern and gave a simple yet perfect reply to ADMIN's comment. This is no small matter for teachers who have no time to waste. Please, give teachers the ability to undo, delete, or edit pages or sections they have mass distributed so they will not have to go into each section or each page and make modifications in each student's notebooks. We teachers will be very grateful for this update.
I also am pleased to read that "This is being actively worked on." My frustration exists in part because of the all the time since January 2017, but also that Michelle brought this up in August of 2019 and here five months more and still nothing. I realize updates take time, but these seemingly obvious and overdue updates take a toll. I apologize for the tone of this post. I just want you at Microsoft OneNote to hear how many of feel. I do enjoy the app and use it daily with my students. The "notebook" aspect was what was missing in the other LMS. Appreciatively and sincerely.
Great to hear it's being worked on, this will allow teachers to control and manage content far easier.
Will this be a functioned added to the OneNote Windows 10 Desktop App?

It would be create if you could undistributed a page or distribute a page as a template so that key parts of the page would remain the same and could be updated by the teacher, where the students response section could be edited.
I agree! This is really a missing key element.

This was a feature you could do in the desktop version as long as the students hadn't started working on the distributed page. I can's see it on the new app version. What a shame! it is very useful to 'recall' a page is sent in error.

The alternative is that I have to go through each student's notebook and delete the page for them - which is very time-consuming.
