Distributing Multiple Pages
Distributing multiple pages needs improvement! It would be idea if I could distribute a section, INCLUDING THE PAGES, to all students at once. Without that, it would also be nice if I could distribute multiple pages and have them show up in students' notebooks in the same order that they were in the original. Right now, I have to choose between distributing each page individually, or sorting the notebooks of many, many students.
We are actively working on this, stay tuned!

How actively working are you on this? Its been almost a year now. I know its coronatime, but it would have been nice to get an status update..
Would it also be possible to be able to edit a document and reflect the edit in all the students file after it has been distributed?
Yeah... I am still having to use the 2016 version of OneNote with OneTastic Macros I wrote to set my pages up teh way I like, and it's time consuming and clunky. Right now, I have to set up all of my section groups and sections for my students (I like each lesson to be it's own section, with each unit being its own section group).
The I name all of my pages within a lesson:
2- blah blah
Then I distribute all of them, but they appear in random orders (ugh).
I DON'T distribute any page I'm going to mark, because I add those to their sections using "create assignment" in teams, so that they are linked to the assignment I want.
THEN I use OneNote 2016 with OneTastic to use a macro that sorts them all into alphabetical order so that everything is in the right order. It works, but it is CLUNKY.

This feature can help educators to design lesson plans, activity series, worksheets and then distribute such multiple pages as and when require.

Totally agree with all the comments below.
Putting all the resources for a series of lessons on a single Page makes the Page hard to navigate and very large. Using different Pages for each lesson makes sense. But I want to be able to distribute all the resources at the start of the topic/module.
To tie this in with Teams, it would be great to be able to assign pages with sub pages as assignments within Teams.

Yes to the keeping the order of the pages. Teachers use multiple pages in a specific order to teach their lesson. Having it show up out of order for students is a pain! The option/workaround to do 1 page at time is time consuming. If you have 150+ students a day spending time having them move pages around is frustrating.
I want it as well.
It would be great to have this.
I would like to add to this, that if you distribute subpages, then they need to show as subpages to the students.
100% this - need to distribute multiple pages and have them distribute in order.
Causing huge issues.
