  1. 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.

    • Archive Class Notebooks with no student access

      When a class is done and the teacher wants to keep the Class Notebook, but not allow students continued access - it would be good to have an Archive option which is closed to student access. This would alleviate issues of students going into the wrong notebooks from previous classes/years and also ensure the teacher can modify the notebook is he/she wishes without concern of a student being confused. Please enable an Archive Notebook function that is closed to students.

        • Recording video in the OneNote app

          We moved from OneNote 2016 to OneNote universal app and we lost the ability to Record Video.

          I hope with future updates we can once again obtain this feature!

            • Distribute read only pages in ClassNotebook

              I want to distribute my evalutations of the students in Class Notebook, that I later can update during the school year so my students always can see how they perform in the curriculum. I've thought of doing a template that I can distribute to the students notebooks and then update them accordingly. However, it is (of course) essential that these pages is read only for the students. Please make it possible to "lock down" distributed pages.

              • New OneNote vs OneNote 2016

                Hello,

                I'm a PhD student in Sociology. I have been using OneNote for 9 years now and 6 years on a daily basis. As many people do, i worry about the newest and only version of OneNote which is less advanced in terms of notes management than the 2016 version was. Here are the feature i miss the most and please, correct me if i'm wrong:
                - Inserting a link which points to a file. Now, I have to attached the file. The link feature of the new version has no purpose other than inserting a website link that we…

                • OneNote UWP automatically distribute existing sections and pages to new students.

                  We teachers need OneNote UWP to distribute existing sections and pages automatically to new students we add to our classes. Currently, we have to add each section and page, one at a time, to each new student. We need the app to recognize that new students will enroll during the year, and make the process more seamless.

                  • Immerse reader

                    It would be great if the immerse reader would be more user-friendly. If It could read the part of the document that you want it to ( instead of reading the entire document from the beginning every time ). And it would be great if the voices were more realistic.

                    • feedback - 2 way private conversation / keep a log

                      OneNote and Classnote (and teams) are all missing the ability for staff to provide a log of feedback or a private conversation to the student. Feedback from both student and teacher needs a real investment. Comments on documents is ok but students (and staff) are able to delete comments.

                      A log would be great to be kept and possibly to be hidden.

                          • Comment on student work.

                            Being able to review student work is great but it is really clumsy and time consuming to comment on student work/ make specific comments. It needs to function in much the same way as a word document. As a result, I am still using Google classroom for student assignment work due to the superior functionality of the Google Classroom product.

                                        • Lock for text

                                          Good day! Please make it possible to block text in OneNote to edit it, rather than the entire sheet.
                                          If this function is, then tell me how?
                                          Thanks!
