      • create summary page

        In 2016 you could create a summary page for all your tags. That is now not there. ;(

        • Distribute to Sections

          I'd like to be able to distribute to section groups. This is not related to using a class notebook and distributing to students.

          I'd like to be able to make a Note book for my staff. The book will will have lots of section groups eg.
          PLC Group One
          PLC Group Two
          PLC Group Three and so on..

          I'd like to be able to distribute identical pages or sections to every section group.

          • Page templates (including title) & other assets created, and distributed for editing and answer sheets

            so often i use my private 'teacher' area to develop "lesson assets" - lesson topics and templates for students that I want to push as combined Topic content not individual page content. Currently I cant even push content and keep the title the same, but if i want to keep the pages and structure intact I cant easily do this. I want the ability to create lesson plans/ lesson notes/ a template for student responses, quizes or tests, and mindmaps and other tools such as flowchart (templates). I also want the page names to go with the pages instead of…

            • marking moderation / cross marking of students work

              being able to give my students notebook or a single page to another teacher to mark to moderate easily.
              what i would like to see is all students in all of my classes pages (like a file manager view) where I can just select the page(s) that I want to mark and a teacher who has then permission to access the page (via sharing perhaps??) and comment.

                Immersive reader would be a wonderful tool in Forms! It’s a need for students that have 504 plans requiring oral administration on tests.

                  • Float selected text.

                    I'm currently in calculus 2 and I use my surface for hand-written equations and problems. It's become somewhat of a pain to do some as I have to scroll back up to see previous portions of the problem or the base equation(s) they started with to continue with solving the problem. What I propose is to allow a section of text or hand written notes to be selected and copied to allow to float somewhere I select on the screen (say the upper right corner) so that when I scroll down that piece stays where it is and I can…

                    • Let me invite students again who cant find their invite.

                      The students are already in the book. But they cant find their invite from earlier. So I would like to have the option to invite them again, without having to delete them from the book first.

                              • Please provide pdf of screen shots, not videos.

                                We work in open plan and it is much easier to have a pdf open on one screen with instruction on how to build the notebooks and work on the design and platform on the other. We are not all fans of the U Tube methods of communication...I can read much faster than I can listen to a video. I can scroll backwards and forwards more easily on a pdf compared to a video

                                • cross notebook

                                  Cross notebook distribution should work from central notebooks. At the moment it causes an error. You need to copy your work into a class notebook and then distribute. This isn't very useful for departments like mine that plan in a shared notebook and have many classes to distribute to.

                                  If you enable this it means that we can start using the website to manage and distribute. At the moment this isn't possible
