  1. The OneNote Welcome tab is intimidating for new users. Rename it... "How To" and have a "Welcome" page that is actually welcoming.

    When I first got access to OneNote Class Notebooks, I spent hours on the 365 web interface trying to set up stuff, added students, watched the intro video... an advertisement for the features, with little information about HOW TO CREATE MY OWN WELCOME PAGE AND GET A STUDENT TO SEE IT FIRST! I finally abandoned the idea.

    Now I have completed a full day training and finally got the idea that I can rename the tab and create my own welcome. Shouldn't have needed to spend an entire day being dragged through the entire process of edits, all of which…

    • Ability to make the cursor look like a pointing hand for lecturing

      When I am lecturing I would like to be able to indicate something on the OneNote page, about which I am talking. Being able to turn the cursor insert point into a pointing finger on a hand would be nice.

      • Use OneNote in the middle of the Occupy Mars Learning Adventures program for building better NGSS & CCSS connections with all students.

        We are traveling up and down the state of California training students to become Jr. astronauts, engineers and scientists. This program is called the Occupy Mars Learning Adventures. We have found a creative way to use one note with our scientific and engineering software for science experiments and our Mars rovers. Our students are prototyping the Mars experience. www.OccupyMars.WordPress.com. We need the One Note Team to see what we are doing on the new wide screen iPad and the Surface 3.

            • Import created section group as part of class notebook creation

              Would love the ability to import a created section group or gives teachers option to import created sections/section groups as a part of the process of creating class notebooks.

              EX: section group containing information about skills all students need (digital citizenship, information literacy, research, evaluating websites) that could go into the class content library

              • Enable overview of the notes and not just titles

                Could we have an overview of the notes (refer keep<dot>google<dot>com to understand grid overview), instead of just the titles of the notes that say "Untitled Page" if you don't write a title.

                This would help us better understand & find the notes, especially on a mobile, and also enable us to continue notes than just writing a new one every time.

                  • Fix the error when adding new teachers to an existing notebook

                    Need a fix or workaround for the "Oops ... Setting Notebook process failed. Please refresh the page and try again" during the "Setting up OneNote class Notebook ..." task during specifically "set contribution process".

                    This happens whenever I add a teacher to an existing notebook (i.e. an additional replacement teacher).

                    • Why do students need to log in twice?

                      I keep shared docs in OneDrive Pro "shared with everyone". When linked to from OneNote Class notebook students are prompted to log into their Office365 accounts again. Why must they be prompted to log into Office365 again after logging into Office365 to view their Class Notebook?

                        Is there a way that when additional teachers are added to a class notebook that they can add students?

                        • Add voice recordings or you can add a word count feature in OneNote. Thanks!

                          Add a place into 'Insert' named 'Word Count' that when I select words and letters, I can see the word count by pressing the button or you can right-click the image/text of the button and automatically have word count on.

                          • Incorporate best in class "Story builder" capabilities.

                            Add Story Builder software. There are many available - but would be great for Microsoft to develop the best yet, and incorporate it in Learning tools. Current software enables a kid to select a title, theme, characters, setting, etc. What's needed is age specific selection, and far more choices! These tools are super-confidence building for dyslexic kids - helps them see that story writing isn't an impossible mountain - but simply is a formula involving a sequence of decisions/steps simply put in the right order!

                            • Dictar en un idioma y automáticamente traducir a otro

                              La herramienta de dictar está genial. Pero me gustaría que a la vez que se dicta se tradujese el texto a otro idioma.

                              Ejemplo. Dicto en inglés y aparece en español.
                              (Podría incluso salir en el idioma en que se dicta y en al que se está traduciendo)
