  2. Make a PDF Editable

    PLEASE make your PDF an editable option. This is so frustrating to have to come up with different ways for students to work on their assignments.

  4. Turn off "Snap to Grip" on OneNote for Windows 10

    Can you add a feature where you can turn off "Snap to Grid" on OneNote for Windows 10...Please? When you're trying to move shapes or placing your cursor in a specific spot...YOU CAN'T! It will always jump to the invisible grid in the background.

  5. Give teachers the ability, when creating common sections, to choose section color and section order and lock it.

    Teachers need the ability to color sections and order sections and lock it so it doens’t change in the students notebooks. This would allow easier navigation of notebooks for younger students- K-5.

  6. Tick box next to title in tab for class notes page- teachers can see completed for marking!

    There needs to be a function in personal pages/ class notes tab where the student can tick completion and I don't have to search

  7. Alphabetize students by LAST name?

    Could you please allow students' names to be listed alphabetically by LAST name? Only by first name is maddening! The way it is now takes me too much time when I go back and forth between my notebooks and grade book or other school district documents and lists. An oversight for sure!

  10. Allow Teachers to delete a teacher-created sections under student's name in Class Notebook

    Being new to Class Notebooks, I created 2 sections under the student's name that I want to delete. Please make it possible to do so under the Distribute Page, Delete feature.

  12. Easier page locking

    It would be great to be able to lock a page in a student's sections that isn't distributed to the whole class.

  13. Can you make a pen where the ink vanishes after a few seconds?

    I'm using OneNote in video lectures and there's no easy way to point at something you've already written. I can draw a little arrow, but then I have to switch to eraser to remove it. Having a pen you can double-tap too where the ink lasts 2-3 seconds would be great. Then you can circle something or whatever, and a few seconds later that vanishes.

    see, e.g., https://youtu.be/2KjIBxvOVkc?t=1902 for usage.

  14. Distribute to class notebooks from a non-class notebook

    In my school, our department uses a shared "main" notebook which is linked to our department SharePoint site so everyone has access to it. This notebook is not a class notebook, so on the online version, we cannot distribute to our class notebooks (even with cross-distribution).

    Would it be possible to add this functionality? You can do it inside the 2016 desktop versions no problem.

  15. Auto-link (linkback) Feature

    Would love a feature to auto-link back to other Notebook, Sections and Pages within OneNote.

    There is an App called Roam Research that uses this feature in a great way. Here is a YouTube video explaining why it is so great (https://youtu.be/vxOffM_tVHI).

  16. It would be nice to add an Activity exercise file from Teams into the class notebook.

    When students have returned their pdf execises via Activity sheet, it would be very useful to print the pdf file into class note book.

  18. hide page

    I am in desperate need of a hide page option in notebook for when I'm giving a quiz or test on information the students have written in their notebooks. When teaching virtually, I have no way of knowing if the kids are looking at their notes when taking tests or quizzes.

  19. Alphabetize student names when making Collaboration Space Groups

    When going into Manage Notebooks to give certain students permission/access to sections in the Collaboration space, you have to select students one by one from a checklist. This is fine, but there doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason behind the ordering of the students in the list. It would be preferred that students are sorted alphabetically by last name so its faster to find the students in the list!
