  5. Place new pages automatically above older pages

    It would have been great if new pages added and distributed were automatically placed above older pages. This would have easier to navigate with!

  8. Copy/distribute sections/section groups

    Improve the copying of sections and groups (Not distributing - That is a different story).

    Currently, when I want to copy a section/section group, I right click, choose copy and I am then presented with a small window showing a fully expanded tree of all my notebooks. When I have 20 odd classes, all with 30 students in it that makes for a big tree that I then have to scroll through, making the process untenable. We need to have a simple copy/paste on right click. Like anything else (ever) in software, right click and copy, then go to where…

  9. Correction pen

    I think it would be interesting to have a separate set of pens for corrections. These pens could be seen by teachers, but not the students until the correction is done.
    For instance, let's say a teacher has 60 writings to correct. They can't be corrected all at once. That teacher could pick a "correction pen" and name it as "writing", then use it to correct or review all the student's work in a span of a few days.
    Once done, the teacher could turn that pen "visible" for the students, so all reviews and marks would be "published" at…

  10. Digital ink to shift if text shifts for annotating

    When typing in OneNote, I should be able to press enter and move my text down a line and have the associated ink move down with it. I am taking notes and have used ink to annotate and ask questions, but if I go back to my notes and press enter to add a new line, the ink does not move with the text. It would be awesome if it did.

  11. activity feed

    In the class notebook, reviewing work takes an enormous amount of time, and is especially frustrating if significant numbers of students are not completing the page, or if they've accidentally changed the title, causing the review function to separate that into a new page. A general activity feed for the notebook, with a running list of edits that students have made, would be a helpful one-stop-shop

  12. A One-Stop Shop for Formative Assessment and Tracking Learning

    At the moment I use Plickers to check homework. The kids love it. I then teach the content, then I use Go Formative to test the students on their understanding. In Go Formative I am able to embed an interactive whiteboard, where the students can write their responses. I then give the students other work to do while I check their Go Formatives. I am then able to give them feedback and give them a score, which equates it to a percentage. What I do then is screenshot the Go Formative summary and copy and paste this into the class…

  14. pdf searchable

    Having only 2016 version able to make PDF text searchable in order to utilize immersive reader is a barrier to utilizing immersive reader with students.
    Inserted printouts should be able to be read by immersive reader automatically or at the very least, text searchable command should be available online and in app.

  16. ■ タイトル 共同編集時のタイムラグが長い Long time lag when co-authoring

    ■ タイトル
    共同編集時のタイムラグが長い
    Long time lag when co-authoring

    ■ 内容
    OneNote を共同編集する際、変更内容が反映されるまでのタイムラグが長い。
    変更内容の反映に 5 秒 ~ 10 秒程度かかってしまい使い勝手が悪い。

    一方、ホワイトボードなどは同環境でリアルタイムに変更が更新されている。

    共同編集はタイムラグなく、リアルタイムに更新がかかるように改善を強く求めます。

    When co-authoring OneNote, there is a long lag before changes are reflected.
    It takes about 5 to 10 seconds to reflect the changes, which is not convenient.

    On the other hand, changes such as "whiteboard" are updated in real time in the same environment.

    Collaborative editing urges improvements so that updates can be performed in real time without a time lag.

  19. Distribute Pages Quicker

    One of the least classroom friendly issues in my experience with OneNote is how long it takes for pages to distribute. I can post something to Google classroom within seconds, but uploading a new page into my notebook and then distributing it to students takes upwards of 10 minutes sometimes... (big PDFs may take all day I've found, even with our school's gigabit internet connection) And then it doesn't really even show up once the distributing has "finished" - it is only visible on the web app for another who-knows-how-many minutes.

    Teachers really need a "real-time" distribution system within OneNote.

  20. Sync still takes too long

    Even with just 2 users, the sync experience is variable and nowhere near as consistent with Google Docs. Sometimes the notebook has to be manually synced, other times it works automatically. With more active users in a class notebook the problem is worse.

    To reduce the overhead of a class notebook constantly syncing there could be an option to set how often the teacher would like all users and clients to sync. For example, if the teacher is just sending out a page with instructions for pupils to refer to then the sync frequency can be reduced to a default…
