  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Changing the preset date in OnNote notebook

    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?

  4. 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).

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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?

  9. 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".

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. Why can we not have full use of the application for Microsoft? There is no help for specific functions.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  16. 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).

  17. 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?

  19. Add Classroom menu options to Android

    Would it be possible to add the Classroom menu options to OneNote on Android, as it appears in the iOS version of OneNote? It would be really nice to be able to distribute pages from my tablet.
