  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!

        • Section for each student that is visible to only teacher for assessment.

          A section for teachers to be able to use to gather assessment information for each student. This would make OneNote a one stop place to collaborate, gather and assess.

          • Please allow students to copy and paste a locked page.

            Please allow students to copy and paste a locked page as a new page. This would enable students to have a record of their thinking but still be able to revise their thinking based on teacher feedback.

            • Stop the user / staff / team member section groups respawning!

              The notebook is automatically updated with a section group for every member of the group who has access. This is a 30 person team and we do not need these sections, but when I delete them they just come back.

              • Recording video in the OneNote app

                We moved from OneNote 2016 to OneNote universal app and we lost the ability to Record Video.

                I hope with future updates we can once again obtain this feature!

                • The current version is missing the capability of inserting long documents with separate pages. This is a really important feature.

                  The current version is missing the capability of inserting long documents with separate pages which exists in all prior versions. This is a really important feature.

                  • rubric

                    I would like the rubric feature to be added to the class notebook. It seems like I can only access this through teams? If I'm wrong, please let me know!

                    • Content Library Read only pages

                      Is it possible to give teachers the ability to 'lock' pages as 'read only' in the Content Library of Class Notebooks? Some teachers would like their students to just be able to view certain pages in the Content Library, and not have the ability to copy those pages over into their own notebook section.

                      • set notification via e-mail when student update a specific page or section

                        It would be good to set notification via e-mail to the listed email(s) when student/stuff member update a specific page or section - not in the whole notebook. It is good for a long time projects.
                        And the 2nd part - send e-mail to the student/stuff member when teacher/manager change this page or section (when the content is commented or corrected).
                        Thank You

                        • 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.

                            • Take-A-Test links in class notebook

                              I just discovered the "Take A Test" app function, which is great for using Forms as a testing tool. However, I can't add links to the protected tests into my Class Notebooks because OneNote automatically adds "http://" to all links, which breaks the Microsoft generated link to my assessment. Could we be able to add these types of links please?

                                      It would be great if you could have a "distribution history" feature to review when/where you've distributed items from your teacher only space. If could funtion by right clicking on the page, scroll to "dh" tab and it will tell you when/where you distributed the page previously.

                                      • Add Adverbs to Parts of Speech Highlighting

                                        I'd love to see you add word highlighting for adverbs. We've been using Immersive Reader in a high school writing class to check student writing. However, one skill we need to refine is the over-use of adverbs in argumentative writing.

                                        • Add Pronouns to Parts of Speech Highlighting

                                          One of the skills I have a hard time helping students with is strengthening their writing by using nouns in the place of pronouns. I would love to see Parts of Speech highlighting expanded in Immersive Reader to include Pronouns like:
                                          he
                                          she
                                          it
                                          they
                                          them
                                          That way, I can start using Immersive Reader as a writing revision tool.
