    • I'd like pupils to be able to copy an entire page to their content area or for me to send a page to all of their areas

      I would like pupils to complete homework sheets that I have made.

      I would like them to either be able to copy an entire page (so they can fill in the blanks or draw on the diagrams)

      or

      I would like to be able to automatically distribute a page into all of my pupil's areas so they can complete the work

      • OneNote Classroom SharePoint app share with security groups

        There is a very nice OneNote ClassRoom app where 'teachers' can invite 'students' to join a teachers OneNote but this is on an idividual basis. The teachers need to add all students individualy. In a school with classroom of 20+ students per class and 80+ classrooms and a multitude of lessons per class, this is a horrible job and not even manageable. We allready have all students in security/distribution groups (synced with AD) we can use this everywhere in SharePoint. Why not in the OneNote Classroom app???

        • Allow more control of shared notebook management

          I have a lot of notebooks that are shared with me. There needs to be a way to organize these shared notebooks into some sort of user-defined directory. We should be able to create folders to organize shared notebooks. For example, I could have a Shared Work Notebooks folder and a Shared Personal folder. Or, a teacher can have a separate folder for each class period. As-is, the current view of notebooks shared with me Isa mess.

          • Pen in place tool selection

            User group >> Surface pen user
            Problem >> Changing between often used tools takes time and you need to leave the place where you work. Especially for the eraser that's annoying.
            Story >> As a pen user I want to select my favorite tools in place at the tip of my pen just by clicking the side button of the pen and automatically switching between these tools.
            Implemented as >> Like the tool selection dot in drawboard OR the tools scroll/swap through while the pen button is pressed.

            • Ability to clear recent ink marks

              I have screen clips of my Math Book. I work on the pages with students during station work. It would be nice to be able to clear ink notations that I recently added. Since I will work through a section over the course of 2 or 3 days in class.

              • Please make it easier for students to launch their class notebook on their devices!

                I use the Class Notebook with my 7-9 year-olds quite a lot and love it. I am often in a situation where I'm trying to convince other staff that One Note is actually a time-saver and incredibly useful in the long run and worth the time it takes to set it up. Most of my colleagues who are willing to give it a try give up after creating their class notebook because the set-up on student devices has so many steps. They write the whole program off as requiring too much time and never try it again.

                • Add Action Links

                  Similar to PowerPoint, I'm looking for a way to add an audio link to an image, so that if the student mouses over, or clicks on the image, the audio will play. Currently I can add the audio link, but when clicked it activates the playback tab rather than playing.

                    The new document comes with a preset historical date. How can I change the date? I tried clicking on it and looking through the menus. Did I miss something?

                    • iPad - add 'scissors' to be able to circulate some selection of my class notes and then drag and drop them somewhere

                      This feature is done in other good iPad note taking apps such as GoodNotes - you can circulate with your finger/pen some area of the note, and then easily drag it anywhere you want on the page. It would be helpful, especially as sometimes the prof. adds something on the board that he had forgotten about initially. The desktop version seems to be able to handle it (although it's just in rectangular form using the mouse).

                      • It would be nice to be able to color code the student folders for teacher groupings.

                        Some teacher like to put more than 1 class in a class notebook. If they could color code the student folders they could then give each class a different color.

                        • Merge some steps to 1 page when creating a notebook.

                          When creating a class notebook, marge the lines to enter names (class, teacher & student) all on one page. This reduces number of steps, so easier for the class creator.

                            • Content Library - disable from Admin level?

                              I love this product. However, we deliver learning resources via our LMS. This provides many features, such as analysis of student interaction that enables prediction of academic performance. We want to keep this, while using the other features of Class Notebook Creator.
                              However, if the Content Library is available to teachers, some may use it to deliver content, which would circumvent our organizational goals.
                              Is there a way to turn off this component at the Admin level?

                              • Concern about students creating class notebooks

                                I have just experienced a curious anomaly. We have Office enterprise licenses for our classroom machines so I installed Office 2016 in my classroom for some planned PD with instructors. I also installed the OneNote add-in. We use a generic log-in to the machines. Each instructor has a faculty license Office 365 account. Students have a student license. Without logging into Office 365, I started OneNote 2016, I could see the Class notebook tab. I tried to create a class notebook WITH A OFFICE 365 STUDENT LICENSE. I logged into OneNote with the student ID. I did not realize that…

                                • Share Class & Staff Notebooks to OneDrive for Business for users without Exchange enabled must be possible

                                  Its not practical to deliver the Exchange service to young students. There are also legal implications doing so.

                                  If Exchange is disabled on user before they sign in, sharing to Onedrive "Shared with me" folder will not work.

                                  Only after Exchange is provisioned on the user account sharing to Onedrive "Shared with me" folder will work.

                                  Using and sharing Class and Staff Notebooks should work regardless of the Exhange service is provisioned or not on the user object.

                                  Ref: Office365 Service Request Ticket 616033193686580, stating this is "by design".

                                    • I had a brilliant blue colour pen but the choice is gone in 2013 version. My students are not happy.

                                      More choice for pen colours. I had a brilliant blue colour for my pen but the choice is removed from the 2013 version. My students and I are very disappointed. Please let it happen again.

                                        • Make it easier to fix when teachers in support of a student want to have access to a class notebook

                                          It seems like when I share a link with my peers to grant them access to one of my class notebooks the link only works for a little while... then something happens, maybe an update, and they can't see my folders in the notebook anymore.
