    • Core Office Apps - live editing

      Having the ability to edit Powerpoint / Word / Excel documents live in OneNote without downloading the documents would be great so OneNote / ClassnoteBook becomes the platform.

      Microsoft, if you invest a lot of time into this, you can certainly compete with Google Classroom.

          • Being able to delete a section from all students folders

            If you setup the onenote with the 4 default sections accidentally but really don't use some of them. It would be nice to be able to delete it from all students folders at once. Especially in the initial setup stages

            • Put to do tags against individual pages

              I know that it's possible to put to do tags against items on a page so that when you look at a page you can see which items are done and which are to do.

              However if a section has multiple pages, e.g. a course module (section) has multiple assignments (one assignment per page). It would be great if the title of the page could have a to do tag included within it. That would mean when the teacher or student is looking at the module they can see which assignment pages are totally complete and which are outstanding. At…

                  It would be great if teachers and students can create mindmaps on their OneNote pages. A great app for that would be mindmeister.

                        • Cross Notebook Distribution

                          OneNote needs to have all of the Cross Notebook Distribution options that OneNote 2016 has. Right now, I teach three different sections of the same course. In OneNote, I have to make a copy of the same page in each notebook and distribute the same page three times. In 2016, I only had to make the page once and could distribute it to all three class sections that I have. OneNote 2016 also allows you to make student groups, which is awesome for differentiation. OneNote does not have this option. To me, this is a GAPING hole in the app.

                          • Don't get rid of the desktop version of OneNote

                            I am a teacher and the App version of OneNote doesn't come close to the functionality of the desktop version. The constant loading of the different pages wastes valuable time a teach doesn't have to waste.

                            PLEASE, PLEASE make a OneNote 2019 desktop version!!!

                                  If a student accidentally deletes a single page in a Class Notebook, they have no way to recover it OneNote 2016, OneNote App or in the Online version. The recycle bin is disabled for students in Class Notebooks and single deleted pages that students delete in Class Notebooks do not go to the recycle bin on the teacher side either.

                                  If this is not possible or for an interim improvement to the way things work, at least add an option to turn on a confirmation for page deletions in Class Notebook and expose a way to setup a default value…

                                    • "section group"

                                      In one note app, provide the same functions for distributing a new blank section group to all students, and then distributing new blank sections to that group that already exists in one note 2016. I would use some of the enhancements to section groups requested in other threads if they become available, but a first (and hopefully simple and quick step) would be to just port the existing functions over to the new app.
