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.

        Absolutely necessary function! We are trying to get everyone into OneNote but the lack of this type of functionality is holding that back. Why is it available for the free version but not O365 / business???

        I would love love to use TaskClone while I am at work. Pleas enable it for OneNote Business! It would be a huge help for productivity

        I asked TaskClone if they could please make their system work for O365 accounts. They need this feature to be able to do this. I am surprised O365 Business customers have less access to features then free personal accounts

        Seriously blew me a way. I've moved my enterprise to a large EA with MSFT including O365 E3 EMS for all my users globally. Now I'm find many users moving their OneNote notebooks out of my controlled protected O365 to their personal OneDrive accounts so they can use features like this with TaskClone and other tools. As the head of IT I can't move my data but I'm so tempted as I love OneNote but need things like hooks so I can marry my notes to my tasks in other tools. I hate supporting shadow IT but you are really making it hard. I've found other users who have abandoned OneNote completely and moved back to EverNote which I also can't approve. Please help us.

        I'm stunned that the 'business' version of OneNote (paid for via Office365) does not have this functionality, when the 'home' free version does! Please give this some priority - you have lots of small businesses that desperately need this functionality.

        Please open this data up outside of Microsoft programs. This would be a big help for me as I leverage outside developers with niche solutions.
