  1. Automatic calculater in equation mode, with units

    When students type in eg. 2+2= , it will automatically calculate the equation, but this does not happen when you are in equation mode. I want my students always to use the equation mode, but then onenote doesn't automatically calculate the equation, and then the students won't use it. It would be SO helpfull if the equation mode were able to calculate simple equations, WITH units, so the student would learn how to write equations correct with units.

  2. Deleting Duplicate Pages

    It would be so much easier to use this NB if I could delete pages from the review student work tab. I usually don't catch the duplicate pages until later which means I have to delete page by page, notebook by notebook. It's obnoxious bc it takes too long.

  4. My students would like an "undo" button like Word has. Many students somehow accidentally delete their work in One Note and must start over!

    My students would like "undo" buttons like Word has. Many students (somehow) accidentally delete their work in One Note and must start over! This is very distressing for them.

  5. Linked Inking and Audio: Version Consistency

    I love the ability to ink and record your voice simultaneously and have them link together, which is present in the Win 10 and 2016 versions. However, when students try to view the feedback given on the browser version, the inking is often displaced and you are forced to download the audio file instead of streaming it from the OneNote page (as you would do in Win 10). It would be great if this was more consistent across all versions, including iOS.

  6. Allow students to subscribe to a OneNote Notbook so that anything that is updated will be sent to them via an email.

    Students need to be notified if a teacher adds in directions, assignments nor class notes. Allowing the student to subscribe to changes in a OneNote Notebook helps to make this already amazing tool even better. Students could get updates via text, or even email.

  9. Staff Notebook - Review Staff Work

    In the Class Notebook ribbon, there is an option called "review student work" which allows you to quickly flick through distributed pages. The same option with a staff notebook would allow principals and school leaders to quickly check staff progress when they are asked to upload documents to OneNote.

  10. Updating the content of a page to re- distribute

    Include a way to update the content of pages in Class Notebooks after distribution - e.g, re distribute the same page with some edits or additional content without it distributing a second copy of the same page name in each student's section. It gets very confusing for primary (elementary) aged students.

  11. Filudskrift

    Jeg savner at kunne indsætte en "filudskrift" (in Danish). Det virker ikke at indsætte et billede, hvis det eksempelvis er et Worddokument. Man kan i andre versioner af Onenote.

  13. Being able to download or print a set of work created through 'review student work'

    Its great that i can collate a specific page across a class notebook book but then i am extremely limited in what i can do with this. I want to be able to download this collection of work or be able to print it. At the moment i have to print them one by one which is a huge waste of time. Some times you need a paper copy for displays etc other times its to share with another teachers, family etc

  15. Distribute pages to the collaboration space

    As well as being able to pick and choose multiple sections to distribute to all at once. I have a separate section in the collaboration space for student groups and with 23 groups it is time consuming to manually copy and paste a page 23 times!

  16. Exporting sections and individual pages from Onenote class notesbooks.

    We used to be able to export a section from the desktop version but this seems to be gone in the app. I would very much like to be able to export individual pages. This is very important when student work needs to be held in separate and secure records for assessment purposes.

  18. Formatting!!

    Please add the 'format' tab when using images, tables, smart art, textboxes etc. the same way you can in Word and Ppt. Please!! I'm going back and forth trying to make this look nicer and separate ideas and boxes but I can't even crop a picture or put a background colour to a textbox. I'd love this feature, it's on Word so it should be here too! - A tired teacher.

  19. Using the angle symbol: not possible in OneNote?

    Neither "insert symbol" nor "insert equation" nor "ink to math" appears to support the "angle" symbol, which looks a bit like a capital L in italics (but which won't work in equations because the L is already italicized)

  20. insert time stamp in OneNote

    To be able to insert a time/date stamp in OneNote would be a great feature to bring over from OneNote 2016.
