  1. ODATA 'search' for OneNote Business

    I was somewhat shocked when an API tech told me you can't search OneNote Business pages via the API to find the note you need to retrieve or modify.

    I'm sure there are some permissions concerns, but without being able to search using the API is extremely inefficient and not really usable for many purposes.

    Please prioritize giving your paid business customers the same features as your free consumers can get.

    • Get/Put RAW page data

      Hi,

      I want to get and put the raw data for a page, so that I don't have to parse the HTML rendered page and download the resources, and maybe have to wait for another API for supporting Ink or other extension generated data. And I'd like to avoid generate multipart http request just to restore what I downloaded.

      And want this integrated to MS GRAPH API C# DLL so that I don't have to create raw http(s) request.

        • 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.

              • ink equation training

                I want to input \leftrightarrow by ink equation, but i can't. I tried to correct it, but there is no choice of \leftrightarrow. So, why not give a choice to uers to input what we want in the correction choice section and let the ink equation learn my habites.

                • 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.

                        • Enabling Column Merging

                          In Word and Excel columns and rows can be merged. However, 'merging' is not a function in OneNote. This means copying and pasting between the said programs becomes difficult at times.

                            • Make tags on the entire note available through the API

                              Although OneNote tags on page elements (e.g. <p>) show up in the HTML content returned via the REST API prefixed with a data-tag attribute, tags on the entire note are not returned.
                              Jorge Aguirre believes that the right way of representing this information is to add the data-tag attribute to the HTML->head->title element.
                              More about this feature (or rather, current lack of it) at:
                              https://stackoverflow.com/questions/47025309/any-way-to-get-the-tag-on-a-note-not-just-a-page-element-via-onenote-rest-api

                                  • comments in popups format

                                    It would be great to insert comments like in word.
                                    or as recently implemented wikipedia.
                                    Putting the mouse up or clicking will pop up a comment.
