  1. OneNote in Canvas open in same window

    OneNote should open in-line with the same window from within Canvas LMS just like OneDrive. The whole point of Canvas is to keep students in the same single window!

        • Make the sync error more noticeable

          When there is a sync error, it shows up as a subtle same-colour exclamation icon in the top right of the window. This is very easy to overlook. Sync errors on Onenote should be way more prominent because we all work on multiple devices and need to know right away if sync is not working.

          • Embedding documents

            classroom implementation.

            I have recently read that OneNote 2016 will no longer be updated. A feature both myself and my colleagues LOVE is the ability to edit word documents, PowerPoints etc and directly save into notebooks. This does not work on the OneNote 10 Windows which our school is encouraging us to switch to due to syncing issues of the 2016 version. This function is amazing.

            • embed H5P

              H5P is so powerful, it would be perfect to embed H5P content into OneNote with just simple copy+paste the URL.

              • Students' activity

                Let it be possible to see the students' activity. If more substance parts were processed already, the lag let it be possible to see who replaces it, who dealt with what last. Let him be allowed to be to be looking for, which sheet worked on, let all of the laopot not be needed always to check out.

                  • Distribute a section without having OneNote create an untitled page in it.

                    Distribute a section without having OneNote create an untitled page in it. When I distribute my neatly ordered pages into the section, the students see the blank "untitled page" (that OneNote created automatically) listed first. This throws some students (especially those with learning disabilities) for a loop because it appears like there is no information in the section. PLEASE fix.

                                When Zooming OUT when cursor/selection is *anywhere* the page is "anchored" to the Top Left of the page (let's call that "Home").
                                But, when Zooming IN, the page is anchored to the location of the cursor/selection.
                                Moreover; using the keyboard "Home" key only takes me to the beginning of the current line; I've also tried using CNTL+Home to no avail.
                                I find myself CONSTANTLY going to a page, zooming in, then having to scroll Left and Up to see the start of the page if I forget to click at the beginning of the title. AND; even then, I'm not…

                                  • OneNote 2019 - Please make OneNote part of Office 2019 (Desktop version)

                                    Dear Microsoft

                                    I am a teacher and I use OneNote in all my classes. It's a great program.

                                    It is a very big issue if Microsoft does not make a desktop version of OneNote (Include OneNote in Office 2019).

                                    The app version of OneNote (included in Windows 10) can in no way replace the desktop version.

                                    Dear Microsoft. You have made a super good program - OneNote desktop.

                                    What should all schools use in the future? Will the app version (included in Windows 10) be updated to 100% the same as desktop version?

                                    Best regards

                                        • Would really like to be able to replace the staff notebook or the addition of another staff notebook for TEAMS

                                          Sometimes you need more than one notebook for different initiatives. Would like to be able to add more than one notebook in a TEAMS site.
