What a great update!

Especially for the modify notebook section. Teacher's only section is really nice, to prepare pages and quickly send them to students when needed. Bieng abble to modify the sections of all students AFTER notebook creation is a great up, we don't allways know what to put at the beginning of year.

@Maddie_Egan link to the blog is broken, please update it, thanks!

@kirashi Hello! Maddie Egan is no longer on our team, but I checked the link and it redirects here correctly: 


Must have been a momentary error that got fixed! 

@Eric Starker actually it appears to be a localization problem. When clicking your link, my browser takes me to the en-us version without redirection, whereas when I click the link in the original article, I am redirected to the en-ca URL which causes the error / not found page.





Seems that Microsoft's blog site is incorrectly redirecting users outside of the USA, or doesn't know how to handle localization, most likely due to corrupted or broken session cookies. (At least that's what I come across when resolving localization issues involving HTTP redirects on WordPress sites.)


Either way, I appreciate the correct link!
