  1. drag and drop from outlook

    Please please bring back the drag and drop from outlook feature. I used that feature all the time and frustrated that I have to save to folder from outlook, just extra steps that I don't have time for. Why do upgrades try to fix things that work well.

  2. Embed Mentimeter

    Mentimeter is a very powerful interaction tool for classroom activities and it would add great value to interactive and engaging lessons.

    you can easily embed a Poll or quizzes by just pasting the link would be perfect

  3. add a new level

    1. I am neither developer nor programmer.
    2. Yes, I too would like another level.
    BUT, I think if I read 100 pages to understand ??
    I have that ability by locating or re-locating that set of note's into a different "Folder" (ie; money, friend, to-do, etc.) on the hard-drive. (YES ??)

  4. Insert Functions in Windows 10 App

    In the Windows 10 App, all the critical functions I need are missing. Cannot insert Office files, screen clippings or even date and time. This forces me to only use the desktop app with Office 2016.

  5. BUG: REST API - MathML is repeated throughout a page

    When retrieving a page with MathML content, the math tags are repeated for every equation. The first instance is in the correct position, and the second is usually at the end.

  6. Auto-check attendees for skype for business meetings

    OneNote 2016 used to automatically take attendance as attendees joined a Skype for Business meeting. I relied on this feature daily and it really helped me to optimize my meeting notes. Please put this back on the new OneNote!!!

  7. 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.

  8. Allow users to set "Rule Lines" color (on View menu)

    Allow us to set the color of Rule Lines.

    I've been using the grid rule lines to keep my writing straight across the page, and recently tried the black background, using bright pen colors and it's great... until I turn the grid rule lines on again. The color is really distracting from the writing on the page.

    Being able to switch or dim grid line colors could easily fix this.

  12. Template with default font

    Defining the type and size of the default font in templates is a basic feature that should not be missing.

  13. A Few Things

    Voice to text for efficiency
    Searchable tags
    Tab sections at top of notebook again- it's getting too crowded on the side of the note page- I know you can hide it but section tabs do not stand out visually

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
