markdown support right from onenote, just like the brand new wordpress addin
OneNote page to markdown would be great
We would like to get more feedback on which of the two scenarios are more important to you:
1. The ability to create new pages in OneNote from markdown? OR
2. The ability to recall OneNote pages as markdown?
1 will be good !
For me it's #2, the ability to get a page as Markdown.
OneNote is really good for ad-hoc note-taking. Once an idea is fleshed-out, it would be great to copy it to something with better history tracking like VSTS wiki or GitHub
Really want #1 - creating OneNote pages with markdown!!
Not concerned with #2 (recalling OneNote pages as markdown).
What we want is to type markdown formatting tags and have them automatically add appropriate formatting on the fly.

I would like OneNote to support Markdown conventions while typing

Both. But #1 has more votes.
I am not the original author but being able to write use Markdown to make notes and have be rendered as Office/OneNote alternatives, similar to how they are done based on Markdown "spec"
A raw markdown view (text only) and a rich edit view (markdown rendered)
Please make OneNote export to Markdown.

I'd like to see some kind of movement on this as well since its been gathering feedback for almost 2 years. Using Markdown in apps like Slack and Trello have been time savers and are a quick way to format text when you're really cranking away on notes, communicating code blocks, etc.

Out of the two scenarios you post, the ability to create new pages from markdown would be more important to me.
What brought me to this is generally transferring notes that have already been written in markdown over to OneNote. As I type and think about your options this it occurs that I will probably be wanting to recall these notes as markdown also.
My general feeling is that markdown has become my default syntax for any kind of commenting or documenting on the web and it'd be nice to not have to context shift now that I'm trying to use OneNote as my primary notes repository.

Alternatively, a converter that applied to highlighted text. I.e., copy a block of MD text from a file or site, paste into OneNote, repeating this a few times. Now highlight the block of MD source in OneNote, right-click, Convert/Re-interpret/render > from MarkDown and presto, the literal MarkDown source in OneNote is rendered with appropriate formatting. I know the point of MarkDown is that in source form it serves in a rudimentary capacity exactly what the rendered form is meant to convey. So this is a nice-to-have, not a critical necessity.

I would be happy with some kind of special-paste mode. In our case, we are migrating/importing MarkDown content into OneNote. It would be nice to preserve the effective formatting, wouldn't mind losing the "source" notation.

How has this been gathering feedback for nearly two years? Come on MS give the people what they want :)
Ability to create notes using markdown first
Pedro Veloso commented
For me to take notes as markdown would be extremely useful
Martin Franken commented
I would personally like to use markdown formatting to format the text withing one note. I find it faster than clicking around or memorizing the one not hotkeys for certain things. Why use `Ctrl`+`Alt`+`2` when I can just use ## to signify a `heading 2`. There are a lot of program that I use that allow markdown style formatting for your input, such as Slack.
Being able to export your notes in markdown formatting would also be nice granted all of the rich aspects of Onenote aren't exactly transferable.

I think number 1 would be the primary feature with number 2 being a "nice to have". Markdown is a great way for coder and non-coders to take notes especially if you know how to type. You can use simple character combination to format your notes without taking your hands off the keyboard.
I would like feature 1 to be prioritized more
