  1. Make general handling and storing of Notebooks in OneNote (accross all plattforms) simple and transparent to the user

    By transparency i mean the following:
    -- It should be obvious to users where their Notebooks are stored, bei either showing the exact URL of the storagelocation or even better show the Name of the Location as (OneDrive for B. xy , OneDrive xy or SharePoint Site xy
    -- When opening an existing Notebook, the available storage Locations should be showed to the user as: OneDrive xy, OneDrive f. B. xy, SharePoint Site xy an maybe "Shared by others". Right now it only shows "recent Notebooks" and "open more from OneDrive" as options

    It should just be clear to the…

  3. rename notebook

    It would be great if when I rename my Team the associated Notebook renamed itself. Not being able to rename a Teams Notebook is annoying.

  4. read mode should be added

    we know that onenote could be edited, but ,there should be an READ ONLY MODE, that you could just read and use your finger to slide and tap, just like PDF, that could be easier for presentation and lecture show.

  5. Student passwords in class notebook

    Allow teachers to remove student passwords in class notebook or prevent students from adding these to their work in OneNote in the first place.

    With students being able to set passwords and lock teachers out, teachers can't check in on student work.

  6. If not bringing back OneNote Desktop, make APP as functional as the desktop version please!

    There are many features missing in the app, and my entire school went to OneNote for it's great functionality and now that we're updated we have lost a lot of the power of the program. Please, either go back to desktop version or make the APP as powerful.
    Specifically at the moment I'm pulling out my hair that I can't rename an embedded file by simply right clicking on the file like before. I also miss the email page button. The list goes on and on. Help please!

  8. Doubletap the ruler to flip it 90 degree

    For me as an civil engineer most of the time I draw i just need the ruler to be either 0 degree or 90 degree. and it is very annoying that every time i have to flip the ruler i have to adjust the ruler manually. I would save a ton of work if I could just double tap the ruler to flip it 90 degree. Would be a small but for me a very efficient feature.

  9. Add the comment feature in Word to Classroom OneNote for Teacher Feedback

    Can we please have a comment system in Classroom OneNote the same as the comment system in Word. This highlights a piece of text and locks the comment to the text so that if things are moved on the page the comment follows the text.

  11. Add digits to the ruler

    Ruler is good helper. But there are no digits on it. It´s difficult to draw line 10 cm (inch) long. It´s so hard to count small lines on ruler. Please add digits to the ruler.

  12. Collaboration Space, students deleting sections...

    Teachers should be able to lock sections inside of the collaboration space so that students cannot delete sections in the collaboration space on accident (or on purpose).

  13. Option to merge cells in tables

    Would it be possible for this option to be implemented?
    Currently, the complexity of tables that can be created in OneNote is significantly impaired due to the lack of this option. Tables (E.G. from Microsoft Word) that contain merged cells won't even retain these merged cells if 'copy-and-pasted' into OneNote - the cells will become separated.
    I use OneNote to take notes in lessons. If I am required to make a table that has merged cells, I can't do so. Instead, I have to figure out a way to convey the information in the table effectively without using merged cells.…

  14. Lock entire sections in the student notebooks

    I'd like the ability to lock entire sections of a student notebook with one click. At the moment, we have to lock all the pages separately. This can be tedious if students have added extra pages or re-named pages.

  15. Allow creation of section groups in OneNote app

    Did not have the ability to select the correct category. This is for the OneNote App.

    Allow for the ability to create section groups in the 'new' OneNote App since OneNote 2016 is not being updated.
