  1. Alerts for pages that have been edited in Class Notebook

    I send pages via Assignments but pupils also update their own pages. Please make it possible to review all pages from all Class Notebooks across all Teams so that I can tick to have viewed and add comments but don't have to search for any updated work across multiple Teams and notebooks.

  2. Class Notebook in Teams - consistency in functionality

    MS Teams has expanded so much but for some reason, the development team fail to ensure all features found in the OneNote desktop app is carried over to the Teams hub. Why can't all versions / access points for our Class OneNotes be consistent in functionality? For instance, staff are unable to lock a section within the Teams hub, instead they have to access the desktop app to do this. Surely, consistency in the product's functionality is not too much to ask? Teachers want to use MS Teams but not if they have to keep going backwards with the tools.

  3. Lock individual student pages in OneNote

    In OneNote for Windows 10 we can lock student pages but only if we distributed the page. In OneNote desktop we used to be able to lock individual student pages.
    We need this feature back. Students do homework in a OneNote page they create. Teachers will want to provide feedback and not have students edit the page after.

  4. Option to send image to background in class notebook within Teams

    It would be nice to have the option to send an image to the background when working with Class notebook from within Teams. Currently I need to open in app (desktop version) to get the option to set the image as background. When an image is not set to background, the students can deleted by accident or it moves on them as they are completing their work.

  5. Add a setting in assignments and OneNote so that students cannot (accidentally) erase my markings.

    Add a setting in assignments and OneNote so that students cannot (accidentally) erase my markings.

    It would be great if there's a setting that would make the teacher's input/ marking only erasable by the teacher herself. Students might accidentally erase my marking when they do corrections.

  7. Add co-authoring PDF documents

    Students can currently work together (co-author) a word document. It would be very helpful if students could work simultaneously on a PDF and then save it with their comments--typed and written.

    It is important that when students either type or use a stylus to fill out "worksheets" that the 'length' of the document not change.

    Currently if students edit a word doc, then they can add paragraphs and the answers on various students' forms are in different places. Sometimes a one page worksheet could be expanded to two pages. We need the questions to stay in the same location on…

  8. Assignment/quiz/exam the original content posted by the teacher should not be editable

    When I assign a homework, the student can (accidentally) delete a question or even delete the page containing the homework from their folder of the class notebook which is a huge problem especially in time constrained situations and with large classes.

  10. DIFICIL ORGANIZACIÓN PARA CLASES

    En general, como todo Windows, tiene pocas opciones de personalizar, como el tema de visualización o edición.
    Si compartimos varios profesores los equipos, y el bloc de notas, todos pueden editar lo que hacemos. Puede darse errores de borrado.
    En las secciones que podemos crear en el bloc de notas se podría elegir a quién quieres dejar que visualice o edite.
    Se debería poder organizar mejor las distintas asignaturas dentro de cada equipo.
    El uso de canales está sólo habilitado prácticamente para notificaciones. Debería poder hacerse muchas más cosas con ellos, si es la única manera en como podemos organizar…

  11. subnote folder in teams class notebook setup

    I would like to be able to create subfolders when creating a class notebook in teams, so that assignments and notes can be organized into chapters/units.
    I have created them in onenote after setting up the team notebook but can not select subfolders as a location for Teams assignments to be placed when they are completed. (I can choose them as a source for the assignment from the content library but not a destination for placing the finish assignment in student notebooks).

  12. Add a set of backgrounds for Class Notebook pages in Teams - lined, squared, grid, handwriting guidelines...

    Add a set of backgrounds for Class Notebook pages - lined, squared, handwriting line guides... I know that some of this is available in OneNote, but they don't carry over when pages are opened in Teams.
    This is a real opportunity for MS to gain traction in primary schools and move teachers over from the software the currently use on their interactive panels (e.g. Smart Notebook and ActivPrimary).

  13. OneNote 2016

    Add ALL functions from OneNote 2016 to OneNote for Windows 10 or update OneNote 2016

    I’ve tried using OneNote for Windows for a few weeks now and the functionality is terrible. Please would you add ALL the features of the 2016 edition to the latest one? And make it work? Features such as being able to insert a printout into a page from the doc on the page as well as in Class Notebooks distributing SUCCESSFULLY to students are just two of the features that I’m really missing. I’ve been told I should switch, but if it doesn’t work properly,…

  14. thumbnails of student work in class notebook

    In ClassKick and Nearpod, the teacher can see an array of thumbnails of the students' work while they are working on it. I would like this option in the Class Notebook when I distribute an assignment. I'd like the ability to be able to watch the class as a whole with an array of thumbnails so I can click on one to see in more detail, or watch all as they work. This should be an option in "Review Student Work".

  16. Schedule distribution of pages to OneNote Notebooks

    Several of our instructors would like to be able schedule the distribution of pages to student notebooks by date. This would allow pre-prepared worksheets pages to be sent at the same to student notebooks at the time every week accross the duration of the course.

  20. Office Lens and Immersive Reader working inside Teams

    As teachers increase use of Teams for class organization and students need to submit responses based on both paper and digital formats, it would be really helpful that Office Lens will upload to OneNote inside Teams and allow use of Immersive Reader to work in the same relationship as with standalone OneNote, able to recognize, read, translate, and enhance text. Thank you for considering!
