  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.

  2. Support 'Apps for Office' to allow custom TaskPanes within OneNote apps.

    Other Office applications support the addition of custom taskpanes via the Javascript-based apps for Office model. it would be great if OneNote apps had the same support.

  3. Include a 'parent' property for Pages and Sections

    Include a parent property in API results so you can work backwards for the tree (or can build a tree with a single API call).
