  2. Automatically open last edited page

    On other OneNote clients the last page edited opens automatically on startup. On Android this was the same until an update changed it to "recent pages". From a workflow perspective it would be great to have the choice in the settings to either open the last edited page or go to the recent page overview

  3. Easiest improvement: minimally add ONE more highlighter (if you're not going to work on anything else more for colors/pens/highlighters)

    ADD A PINK HIGHLIGHTER. Why pink? So that we can at least highlight in 5 different colors: Yellow, Blue, Green (highlighting blue over yellow gives green), Pink, Orange (highlighting pink over yellow gives orange)!!!!! So, give us a pink highlighter!!! This would be very very very very greatly appreciated because it's one small change you could do for the android version and it would make a difference.

  4. Page size on Screen

    I have just started using One note on Laptop and on My tablet. I am mainly using for University.

    One Feature that would help would be to be able to set a page size to write and on the infinite page you would have the lines where that size of page would stop so you stop writing .

    this would aid the printing of the notes. even though when printing from my laptop the software cuts the notes into A4 a few lines get cut .

  5. App is very slow to start up

    The Android app is very slow to start up. Often times you just need to check something and want to get to your notes quickly (or jot down an idea), but the app needs 3-5 seconds to startup even on a faster phone. That is very frustrating many times and counter-productive always.

  6. Alternative cloud storage/ sync location options

    On the Android app you should consider offering individuals their choice of note storage location for syncing. Not everyone uses OneDrive so it would be beneficial to be able to choose other options e.g. Dropbox, box, mega sync etc etc etc based on existing workplace/ individual sync location policies or practice. Most of these provide a local sync folder and any one note file can be placed there for syncing. People like options....just a thought

  9. Drag and Drop fro android devices

    All new Android devices (And I think mostly all of the old ones) are supporting drag and drop feature and running two apps simultaneously. Especially for note taking app to support drag and drop feature is crucial. We have bigger and bigger screens and as well new tablets. And easiest way hove to insert anything to note is to drag and drop it to note. If I need selected images, videos or even texts.

  10. Mind Maps in OneNote

    Mind maps are great for note taking and structuring ideas. Having this ability in OneNote would make OneNote THE place to take notes be that in text paragraphs, picture, annotations or mind maps!

  14. Include find tags function

    Please add find tags function to Android. So often, I want to remind myself of the tasks I have created at work but am unable to do so without accessing a PC. It would be such a shame to have to go to another provider and use their apps to be able to do this when I am happy with OneNote in every other respect.

  15. Automatically remove empty note if exited

    I click "add" in order to summarize, but finally I have nothing to write and I exit the note. The not is saved empty and with no title. There is no point to those notes.
    I would like them to be automatically removed or at least have a cleanup option.

  16. OneNote for Wear OS

    OneNote for Wear OS is available but it crashes right after you open it. Looks like the last Wear OS update broke it. Fix?

  17. Recent View - Way to return to parent section

    When opening items from Recent View there is no way to display the book structure and so it is impossible to go to a parent page from a recent page. This means you have to find the notebook and open it that way to get the structure

  18. "Cannot open a notebook located on a legacy sharepoint server"

    I setup OneNote/Android for the first time by adding my home account first (@outlook.com) and then my work account (@microsoft.com). When I tried to open a work notebook, i got this error...
    "OneNote cannot open a notebook located on a legacy sharepoint server"

    I found a work around:
    Logout all accounts
    Login to work account first (my @microsoft.com account)
    Login to home account next (my @outlook.com account)
    Open work notebook...opens as expected.

    This appears to be a bug.

  19. Chinese font on the mobile phone is abnormal!

    OneNote for Android has a problem for a long time:
    I set the Chinese default font XX on the computer version of OneNote, so now the first few Chinese characters entered on the mobile version of OneNote are the default font XX, and then suddenly changed to Microsoft Yahoo font. This is simply ridiculous! !
    Many Chinese users have the same problem, but OneNote has not fixed this bug, never.

  20. Notebook List navigation bug regression

    The OneNote for Android "new icon" release contains the Notebook List navigation bug. This was fixed previously during this year.

    The Notebook list will change the list focus to the last accessed notebook when synchronizing each notebook. This impacts a user's ability to navigate the notebook list when the number of notebooks require scrolling.

    Videos documenting the issue within Android Emulator.
    https://youtu.be/zU1gePCrm3w
    https://youtu.be/OdvbqoSTzwc

    The issue is reproducible on any Android hardware device.

    This has been reported in the Android Google+ group before it was shutdown.
