  1. Webhooks for Office 365 Notes

    Webhooks now work for OneDrive accounts which is great, but we've got Office 365 Business clients clamoring for the same functionality. I know there are privacy and access concerns to be addressed here, but Evernote solved them and I'm sure Microsoft will too.

    It's always tough when paying Business users feel behind free users in functionality. Hope this can be addressed soon.

    • Programmer Friendly Pages and Features

      I would like to be able to switch individual pages to a "Programmer Mode" or have some kind of "Frames" to put programming code or commands in. I'm tired of the first letter of every line being capitalized automatically, auto correct changing words in my code, and everything being underlined as a misspelled word.

              • Expose the complete Object Model of Onenote

                The OneNote API should be the API that the Microsoft team that develop OneNote themselves uses.
                There should not be anything that Microsoft can do that a 3:ed party could not do as well.

                There should be a set of basic classes/objects that remain fairly stable over time and then just about everything else should be addons.
                Check out how Visual Studio is done, and then do something similar with OneNote.

                At the very foundation OneNote is nothing but a distributed and replicated Database, so creating new data models/structures should be a trivial thing.
                There could be requirements that there…

                • Onenote tags

                  I am syncing OneNote notebooks into my application using MS graph API. Onenote has few tags like To-Do, Important, Question etc. When I fetch html content for particular page these tags comes as data-tag like in -

                  <p lang="en-US" data-tag="important" style="margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt"><span lang="en-GB">Abc</p>
                  How can I replace these tags with the icon with which they are represented in OneNote UI. If I think to skip these tags the notes look very weird.

                  There has to be rest api which gives you binary content or some metadat information about tag provided tag type (name) like to-do

                    • Mini Spreadsheets

                      It would be nice to inlay a small spead sheet of 2-25 rows and columns in a page without having to open, name, create, and link to a whole different document to run a few calculations for a quote on the page. I have used tables to do alignment but they don't have math and formats in the cells.

                      • Markdown Support for OneNote (desktop and web)

                        I know there's already an Idea posted for this topic however the original poster of the idea hasn't provided feedback as to what exactly they meant. so here goes:

                        It's simply the ability to use Markdown in OneNote pages, Currently I use the tool to take all of my work notes, and as a Developer I need to add code blocks, code lines and other formatting into my notes,. It would be great if Markdown was added to OneNote just like in GitHub wikis or Stackoverflow for example as I would hate moving away from using it!

                          I need to change all the fonts in all my programs to a larger font. I have always been able to do that easily. But in these new programs, it just doesn't seem possible. Why would they make a change that is detrimental to low-vision people? What can I do?

                          • Add-In Ink Support

                            Allow OneNote add-ins to access ink position data (height, width, x, y and type - highlight, ink stroke, etc.) Current implementations only allow for getting id. Not very useful.

                                  • API to identify deleted notebooks/sections/groups IDs

                                    Existing API's do not provide a way to identify deleted notebooks/sections/pages. Request you to provide an API to provide the list of items got deleted from a given date.

                                    This will be useful in case of offline apps where it syncs periodically to OneNote server.

                                    • Mind Maps. , would be great to be able to create mind maps in One Note

                                      It would be helpful to create basic mind maps in one note. I appreciate I could draw one, but not very professional to export or share.
