Be careful when choosing to rename notebooks. This might cause confusion for students and other teachers that have access to the notebook. The link in OneNote for recent notebooks will be broken and students will need to go to the Class Notebooks section to open the notebook with the new name.
To rename a class notebook open any notebook with OneNote. Click on the apps launcher and click the OneNote tile.
Click on the Class Notebooks section and click on one of the notebooks.
When the notebook opens click on your account name at the top of the notebook page.
OneDrive will open and list all the notebooks created in Class Notebook.
Click once on the notebook that needs a name change.
Click the rename option in the menu bar.
Provide a new name when the rename box opens.
Click save after renaming the notebook.
The new name will be applied to the notebook and updated for all students that have access to the class notebook.
To open the notebook, make sure the notebook is selected and click on Open in the menu bar. Select one of the options to open the notebook. We can also open the notebook online by clicking the book name link.
A Note About The Name Change
During the creation of these instructions it was discovered that the name change does not change the original notebook name in the OneNote application. Looking at the notebook in the Class Notebooks section of OneNote we see that the name for Biology Class Period 1 remains unchanged.
When the notebook is opened we do see the new name change at the top of the page. It won’t affect the functionality of the notebook but it can be confusing for students and other teachers that have access to the notebook.
