  2. Change page order within a section

    The order property for a OneNote page should be settable by REST. I'm able to set Level using a PATCH with JSON on the Page Url, but when I try the same with the order, the return error say it's not supported. A consolation prize would be to have the ability to create pages at the top of the section (since that would help out my current application) but this really feels like it should be settable.

  3. Drawing notes as a subgroup to written notes

    I love the subgroup ability of typed notes, what it we could add a canvas to OneNote, just like Word and write into it and make it a subgroup to other typed texts.

  4. Integrate OneNote with Miro

    Just like Notion integration, we need Miro integrated into OneNote, or even have a dedicated built-in section for mind map in the OneNote.

  5. OneNote UWP add-in API

    OneNote UWP add-in APIs are essential to a successful OneNote-Office transition to UWP. Office-OneNote add-in capability have a healthy ecosystem for customized user-developer functionality, such as Onetastic, OneNote UWP add-in APIs should be sustained to empower users-developers to provide unusual or domain specific functionality, which can quickly be developed and deployed to meet domain-specific user-needs and become candidates for eventual OneNote PWS integration. As an example, an Office-OneNote healthcare Electronic Medical Record (EMR) set of macros is used for clinicians to maintain patient records for small medical practices. Losing OneNote Office API integration decreases the Microsoft value proposition.

  6. Implement copytosection, copysection, copynotebook for consumer OneNote via Graph

    Please support the above operations for OneNote Notebooks hosted on Consumer OneDrive. Currently these return 'Not Implemented' although the documentation suggests that they should work.

  7. HTML last-modified-time and last-modified-by data attributes

    Additional HTML object attributes that identify when specific segments were last modified and by whom e.g. last-modified-time= last-modified-by=

    This would greatly expand the development possibilities for the REST API (such as user-contribution tracking), bringing it in line with what was possible with the C# applications developed for the desktop version of OneNote.

  8. API to list notebooks in sharepoint site even if the site has more than 20000 items in it

    API can have a "search by displayName" feature instead of restricting the API to be used if share point has more than 20000 items in it or at least it can provide a paginated response

  9. 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.

  10. Requests throttling (suggested API call rate)

    What is the suggested maximum OneNote API call rate (API requests per second) over thousands of API requests - in order to NOT get throttled by the service.

    Or, put it in another way, that is the minimum suggested interval between single OneNote API requests, in order to avoid throttling - over thousands of requests needed to be made?

    I would implement this throttling in my client-side code, but any reasonable call rate I've experimented with, currently still leads to throttling, beyond 1000 requests performed.

    My use case is this: I need to mass-import data from OneNote notebooks under an…

  11. BUG: REST API - Getting page collection of a section returns deleted pages

    I noticed that requesting a page collection from a section will return a response with pages that were deleted already. This does not always occur. In my scenario I deleted pages from the OneNote web app and made a call to the following endpoint:

    https://www.onenote.com/api/v1.0/me/notes/sections/{section-id}/pages/

    Both current and deleted pages were returned in the response.

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. Add createdBy, createdDateTime, lastModifiedBy and lastModifiedDateTime to individual page elements via OneNote Graph API

    OneNote definitely has author information about individual edits within a page (i.e. individual divs or whatever), as this can be viewed through the API. We would like this information through the Graph API.

  17. 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.

  18. API support for page versionning

    It should possible take a backup copy of page using the same mechanism as the application built-in versioning mechanism.
    Eg. Before modying a page with the Rest API.

  19. Search/Filter using data-tags (like data-tag="to-do")

    I am developing a script which will copy all the content from several pages having " data-tag='to-do' ". It would be much easier to fetch the particular contents of the page by filtering it using onenote tags. But currently I have to access each and every page as such features are not yet available in API.
    Please enhance the filters by implementing filter using OneNote tags.

  20. notebook color

    Add a 'color' property to the 'notebook' object.

    With a 'color' property, apps developed with the API could present a more uniform experience across different devices and domains.
