 As always, we would love to hear your feedback, so please suggest and vote on future ideas on OneNote UserVoice page.



This looks like a fantastic resource! Is it possible to input your own solutions into the system so that you could use the terminology the children are familiar with?

@Claire O HalloranI haven't seen that feature mentioned anywhere. I'm not sure what "engine" is used to drive the solution steps, but I can imagine that it is not a trivial task to make that customizable.


@Claire O Halloran @Marius Pretorius currently there are no options for customizing the solution steps. If you think this is a valuable feature, please use https://onenote.uservoice.com/ to vote for your idea.
