  1. OneNote split screen feature to open two notes at one time

    PLEASE make it possible to do a split screen feature within One Note! So then I could have two notes open at the same time. This would help with studying! OneNote is the only thing I use for school and this would be so helpful. It would then allow me to open up 3 items with the Ipad Split Screen feature.

    PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

  2. Map connections, class notebooks, and students in the cloud... not on each individual device.

    I grade on several devices...my iphone, surface pro, my all in one desktop at home, my classroom pc's, etc. Even when i use onenote online i have to do the process again. Madness! Every device i use, i need to go through the LMS login, then map the notebook to my existing powerschool course, then map all the students. EVERY TIME a new device is used!!!!.

    Please push this process to the class notebook creation, and get it set up once!

    As of now if i go to create an assignment in class notebook I have to ensure that each…

  3. copy text from picture

    In OneNote 2016 it was possible to use OCR feature to copy the text from an image inserted in OneNote and paste it as actual text. We have moved to OneNote App and I can not find this feature. I think it is as really useful feature for teachers and students.

    Allow the teacher to distribute a new type of section into student section groups. Inside of this new type of section, students can edit a page, but not create new pages or delete existing pages.

  10. Saving customised stickers

    Customising stickers is great in OneNote but can there be a way to save them as we use marking codes in our school and not having to type these over and over again would cut down the time it takes to add stickers

  11. Drag from OneDrive to OneNote

    Please allow teachers / students to drag documents of any kind from OneDrive online to the OneNote App. Currently I have to save the documents to my computer and then drag them to OneNote. I don't understand why these programs don't work together.

  12. Using one Note App to Export

    As of right now I am not able to export using the app, which is imperative if I want to send out a mass copy of a notebook package for their own use.

  13. Using a Screen Reader and Annotation Tools

    I have a school that is using O365, they want to annotate a PDF and use a screen reader. OneNote doesn’t work because the immersive reader pulls them off the PDF so they can’t annotate at the same time they are using the reader. I tried using Microsoft Edge and the inking tool but then read mode isn't available. The Chrome extensions I’ve used won’t work in OneNote because the PDF comes off as an image and not text.

    Do you have a suggestion or work around to annotate a PDF and use a screen reader at the same time…

  14. Option to have automatically insert printout as background

    the option is available in OneNote 2016. For Win 10 Apps, it has to be done for every page that is inserted as printout.

  16. Icon to show locked pages

    There should be an icon in the pages section to show if a page is locked. This would easily inform both teachers and students.

  17. 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!

  18. Be able to create assignments across notebooks

    It would be great to be able to create one assignment that is assigned to multiple classes to all the classes at once. Otherwise, it has to be created one at a time for each class. It also would be great to be able to assign a page that does not live in the same notebook connected to an LMS.

  20. marking

    give the teacher the ability to mark the work without having to write over the top of the students work, as I have wanted to print the work after marking, but not have the ink printed also, maybe give us a option to review and mark work that falls under the same option as the word comments, where we can turn them off or on
