  1. Android Onenote integration with other MS products (Outlook for Android, To-Do,...)

    This goes along with many other requests for the functionality of Android Onenote to be similar to what is available on Windows. Onenote would be much more usable if the integration between other MS products were present.

    - Outlook for Android - Take meeting notes and bring the meeting details into the Onenote page
    - To-Do - Tasks created in Onenote populate in To-Do and notes can be created from tasks in To-do

  3. Allow Fullscreen

    Distractless fullscreen is important to fully compete with pen and paper.

  4. OCR

    OCR handwriting recognition.
    Similar to S Note where my handwriting is recognised and becomes searchable, even without doing "ink to text". Is so cool and saves me a lot of time in not having to convert my scribble into text.

  5. searching tags

    Please add the functionality to search for tags like in OneNote for windows.
    I would be able search for all the question tags by typing "question" (with quotes) in the search bar.

  6. Simultaneous Recording and Writing/Typing

    It would be great if you did not have to stop writing/typing notes when you record a part of a lecture or interview. This would allow for more precise concept mapping and better organization as important details could be marked more efficiently and referred back to later.

  7. Make OneNote keyboard and touchpad friendly for Chromebooks

    On a Chromebook, the OneNote App does not respond normally to the touchpad when trying to select text, or to many standard keyboard shortcuts. The online version does.

    Double tap (using touchpad) does not highlight the word.

    Long press with a finger (on screen) highlights a word with both selection cursors showing.  When using the touchpad or a mouse, the word is not highlighted and only a single selection cursor appears.

    Holding down left corner of touchpad and using another finger on touchpad to highlight text does not work.

    Keyboard shortcuts work better, but not fully, and out of sync…

  8. make the android version the same as the I pad version

    Can you just give the android tablet version the same functionality as the I pad pro version has. Plenty of pen settings, marker settings, insert free space, easier insert anything., no need to shut down drawing if you want to insert something.

  9. Create SEARCH WIDGET

    We are searching information in notebooks more often than adding new content. Have proposal to create widget for quick searching which can be placed to home screen like "Add note" or "Add photo note".

    Also searching feature can be added to quick menu by long tapping on OneNote app shortcut.

  10. Level the playing field

    Make this short and sweet,
    Enough playing favorites...what ever iOS gets Android should have the same features and vice versa. I know will enough Apple is competing with Microsoft so same with Microsoft against Apple.
    So why play favorites? Enough is enough, favoritism is ******** and we all know it

  13. BUG: Handwriting and drawing, offsets to the left

    On a Samsung Tablet, Tab S4, running Android Pie, and latest version:
    Whenever I draw or write anything using the S-Pen, it always offsets what I've written, each letter at a time, 3-4 milimeters to the left, after I complete the shape by lifting the S-Pen.

    This is making it hard to do any precise writing or drawing, and you can't fully predict what you are going to draw.

  14. Add move to SD

    I know hundreds/thousands people have probably already sent this to you, but enable "move to SD card" for android. At this point, your application is useless to me because it lacks this feature on my tablet. I have a 128GB SD card sitting there with less than 2% used, in a 32 GB tablet, and can't synch my notebooks even though I have all that empty space, because OneNote insists on using 20-something GBs of my internal storage space. Without SD card functionality your app is straight up garbage for anyone who deals with large amounts of data or multimedia…

  15. why does Android OneNote have such limited functions compared to other OneNote platforms?

    Using a stylus on android OneNote is a terrible experience.
    Compare to OneNote on iPad.
    When is Microsoft going to fix all the gaps in the Android version??

  17. Universal user interface as in iOS and windows

    I have read a lot of comments about this an it would really be helpful if the User interface becomes universal as in iOS and windows.
    Onenote for Android looks really dull and abandoned
    The tags, text formatting and drawing functions are really basic and turn OneNote into a really bad note taking app. It doesn’t take OneNote into its full potential and that’s a shame for Microsoft
    As a current user I would appreciate if this points are taken in consideration for the development of the app

  18. Change size of the page

    It would be great if I you would add an option to toggle on and off infinite scrolling both diagonally and horizontally and if you could instead use the size of the page you want like A4 or A5. I just want to use one note like I would use normal notebook, (kinda like app bamboo paper).

  20. Adding more custom pens

    I want to be able to add more pens! As of now, I can only have 4 personalized pens. On the Desktop version, I can add many many more (although overall still not as good as the 2016 version). This is a must-have feature for me on the Android version.
