Rename a class notebook in Teams
I would like to be able to rename a class notebook created by Teams.
This is because they all begin with "Notebook for..." ("Notatblokk for..." in my language region). This makes it very hard to distinguish a list of notebooks in the OneNote app.
A notebook can be renamed in Sharepoint, but this breaks the link between Teams and the notebook.
This appears to a flaw in the basic design of OneNote in Teams. Our school is in the process of switching to MS Teams and I have the onerous task of setting up all of the Teams and NoteBooks using an agreed structure.
The Team has 12 channels (one for each curriculum subject and a class notebook with the following in the Content Library:
6 x half terms
7 x Weeks in each half term
5 days in each week
6 pages in each day
So I thought I'd simply create a Master Team template and a Master OneNote template and create everything using these.
First problem - when creating a Team using an existing Team as a template it retains the name of the original with the suffix - (Copy). You can rename the Team using 'Manage Team'.
The OneNote however when being created using existing Notebook content retains the name of the original notebook 'Master Team Template' as I have called it in this instance.
Had I known this I guess I could have called the master Team 'Class' and at least the NoteBook would have adopted a more appropriate name - already half way through and I don't fancy starting again!!!
Second problem - you cannot copy and paste multiple Section Groups, which makes building a Class Notebook of this format a Mamouth task!!
The ability to change NoteBook names needs to be resolved along with the ability to copy and past multiple section groups (and sub folders) within and across NoteBooks.
I agree. In our school, our students ask for renaming the class notebooks to have a better distinction.
In addition, we have an issue when we create a Class Notebook in our language (PT-BR), and all the notebook names are in english currently.
