  1. Class notebook students alphabetize by last name.

    Currently when you create a class and add students, the student sections are alphabetized by first name. Most grading apications and other systems go by last name. If it would order them by last on creation would save a lot of time.

  2. Office Lens would be a great app to use with Onenote class notebooks.

    Unfortunately, Office lens doesn't work with office 365 accounts!! This is really annoying- our whole school uses office 365- if I want students to photograph their project work at the moment, they have to either email their pics to themselves, download them and then re upload them into their class notebooks. If they could take a pic, and upload it DIRECTLY to their class notebook, they'd be much more likely to do it! at the moment, they cant be bothered. Class notebooks were a great step forward for onenote- this would make it even better

  3. A way for students to submit an assignment and, once submitted, not be able to access it or any other students view it.

    This is a great tool!! We have many faculty that are looking for a way, either here or in SharePoint, to have students submit assignments but then not be able to access them anymore (deadline). Also, no student could view others' assignments. I know students could email the assignment to the faculty; however, they (the faculty) do not want to drag many emails into one spot, they would like the students to "drop" the assignments into a section or folder (SharePoint) that could then no longer be viewed or accessed by them or other students.

  4. Make a shared Groupwork area for a group within your class

    I would like to be able to set up section/pages within a notebook that can only be edited and/or viewed by a small group within the class.

    e.g. I want 5 groups of 5 students each to have their own private shared area.

    Just having one large shared area for everyone is quite limiting...

  5. Mapping students in OneNote 2016 is much more efficient than in Windows 10 OneNote. It would be great if that was available before OneNote

    Mapping students in OneNote 2016 is much more efficient than in Windows 10 OneNote. It would be great if that was available before OneNote 2016 was no longer supported. I would also love the option of having the ability to have the sections be at the top instead of on the side. Small computes lose too much space.

  6. Edmodo LMS not listed on OneNote Online Class Notebook Connections Menu option

    Microsoft state that OneNote will connect to the Edmodo LMS, however when using OneNote Online on a Mac computer. Can the Edmodo LMS be added to the OneNote > Class Notebook > Connections > Connections > Select Your LMS or SIS menu please?

  7. Add Connections button to LMS in the Class Notebook Add-in within OneNote UWP (Windows 10 Universal App)

    I have been using OneNote 2016 with the Class Notebook Add-In that has The Connections button to connect to an LMS such as Schoology, Map Class Notebook, and Map Students for grading within OneNote. But I do not see those same features on the Class Notebook Add-In with the OneNote UWP Windows 10 App. Please add these same features to the OneNote UWP Windows 10 App.

  8. Incorporating Turnitin.com

    I would like a plagiarism check function for grading essays. Currently my school uses Turnitin.com but I don’t prefer the grading features (I want to be able to hand write my comments like we can in OneNote).

  9. 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?

  10. Allow teacher to have the option to make a tab not editable in the student section of Class Notebook.

    Making individual student tabs not editable by students but only by teacher can help the student see documentation without the student deleting or changing the information.

  11. 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.

  12. Teachers should be able to distribute pages to all students from the iPad app as well as the computer

    As it is now we are only able to distribute pages to all students from a desktop. It would be much easier if this function were available on the iPad app as well

    We would like to use OneNote to read math tests except it doesn't seem to read the math symbols from a PDF document using the immersive reader.

  16. Permissioned Groups in Collaboration Space

    I often like to use the Collaboration Space for group work where all students in the group can contribute. The challenge is that all students in the class can both view and edit the work of other groups. Especially when I'm doing class competitions, this is not a good thing.

    In a recent article (link below), there was an API update to allow this, but it's at the IT level, not the teacher level. I want the ability to change these permissions, not just password-protect, as a teacher please!

  17. Review Student Work for iPad.

    I use my iPad Pro to mark assignments in oneNote and provide written formative feedback to my students. It is really inefficient to have to go in and out of every student's notebooks. I would like to be able to review the student work just like i can using the ClassNotebook add in on my computer!

  19. Ability to distribute pages/content to a "group" tab in the student notebook (not just sections).

    I like that "group" tabs can be easily added to students' individual notebooks (in addition to section tabs), but then I would like to be able to distribute pages/content to the group tab that I created for the students. I couldn't find a way to do this. Thanks for your consideration!

  20. group distribution lists not stored locally - other computers, relative to current workbook selected

    I use a number of different devices to use OneNote with. Currently groups are stored locally on the computer, So I need to re-create them on each device I wish to distribute work to.
    I use similar group names for High, Middle and Low abilities, in each course, year and class. The number of groups becomes too big.
    If you are on a Notebook can you make it so only the groups you see are relative to that notebook. (or cross notebook distribute to other groups)
