  1. Lock pages so the students can’t delete them!

    Today the students did a test in OneNote Classroom.

    A big problem I have is that students can delete the pages themeselves.

    I had a student today that wasn´t pleased with his test so he deleted it before I

    had corrected it.

    My wish is that I can lock the pages so the students can´t delete them themselves.

  2. Set a time/date for Page Locks

    Include a timed page lock feature that allows teachers to set a time/date for a specific page in OneNote to be locked to all students. This allows teachers to enforce the due date for an assignment that students are working on.

    When using OneNote Class Notebook in Microsoft Teams, you can currently set a time for the due date and it will automatically lock the pages.

    This is publicly available now in Teams

  3. Distributions to Inidividual Pupils

    Hi guys,

    can we add the feature on the old app to distribute just to individual pupils please?

    thanks,
    Tom

  4. Ability to distribute multiple pages at once in online version of Class Notebook

    Distributing multiple pages at once with a simple check box tool in the online version of Class Notebook would save a significant amount of time.

  5. Lock pages

    After distributing a page to students, I would like to mark and review their work and stop them from editing . Onenote team suggested to copy page to my folder! I have a class of 20, I cannot move all their doc 1 by 1 to the teacher folder or make a copy … it would be a waste of time and space- Teachers should have a padlock - so a Homework/page is locked - Students cannot edit again!

  6. distribute pages

    The ability to distribute multiple pages simultaneously would be very useful. For certain materials I like to keep things on separate pages and right now I can only distribute one page at a time.

  8. Using the angle symbol: not possible in OneNote?

    Neither "insert symbol" nor "insert equation" nor "ink to math" appears to support the "angle" symbol, which looks a bit like a capital L in italics (but which won't work in equations because the L is already italicized)

  9. distribute page to groups/individuals in App

    In the App version I cannot distribute page to groups and/or individual students. Hoping this feature is added so my district can make the switch to App instead of 2016. Differentiation is a cornerstone for how we use OneNote. Same goes for Cross Distribution for middle/high school teachers with multiple classes.

  10. Distribute page does not work to section groups

    It appears that there is a bug in the UWP OneNote and online OneNote class notebook tool for distributing pages and reviewing work. The problem below does not occur in OneNote 2016 and as far as I can see the notebook is not corrupted.

    The issue is that both UWP and online versions of the class notebook tool do not recognise section groups in the student area, only sections. This means that content cannot be distributed to section groups and work in section groups cannot be easily marked using the 'review student work' tool. I hope this is functionality that…

  11. Allow printouts for Word and PowerPoint in Windows 10 App

    Gradually switching over to Windows 10 App from OneNote 2016 and over the next year training staff. Can't seem to find a way to add a printout of Word and PowerPoint. This means that staff will have to convert to PDF before inserting existing teaching resources. Want to make OneNote as easy as possible for staff and do not want to train in two different versions. Is file printout for documents other than PDF on its way soon? Please say Yes!

  12. Class Notebook Manage Notebooks created through Teams

    Class Notebook Manage Notebooks created through Teams
    When a Notebook is created through Teams, it would great if an educator had the ability manage the Notebook through Class Notebook Manage Notebooks. Currently, we have to open the notebook through teams before being able to make any changes.

  13. Distribute to Individuals or Subgroups

    I am trialling the OneNote that comes with Windows 10 (since we heard 2016 wasn't being developed) and can't find the feature to distribute to individuals or a subgroup that is available in OneNote 2016

  14. Distributing page to groups across class notebooks

    It would be great to have the ability to distribute a page to student groups across notebooks outside of the originating class notebook.

    Thanks for the feedback on this. After distributing pages to students, under the “Distribute Page” menu you can click the Undo option revert the distribution. Note that this option is only available within the current session you distributed the content in. There is no explicit delete option after this because it could potentially delete content added by students to their individual notebooks.

  16. Math Assistant needs an On/Off switch

    Math Instructors are asking for the capability to turn this feature off for assessments and quizzes. Also will Math Assistant be available in the desktop version?

  17. locking down student work title

    When I create an assignment and distribute to Ss, I tell them not to change the title of the page, but invariably someone (often more than one someone) renames their assignment page in their individual space. This means I have to do hunt and peck for assignments when doing "review student work." Could we have feature to "lock down" assignment title so it all shows up in one place when we do review for grading ease? Thanks!

  18. Individual and group distribution in Win10 App.

    Please add individual and group distribution to the Win10 Onenote app as in Onenote2016. The ability of the teacher to differentiate assignments for individuals or groups of students is perhaps the most powerful feature of Onenote 2016. Unfortunately it is possible in the Win10 Onenote app.

    If you are using text input, simply select all your equations and press Math button.
    For ink input, make sure you write each of your equations in a separate line with a tall { to their left (think of it as a connector). Then select all your ink before pressing Math button.
