  1. Allow flight mode message to be dismissed

    When mobile device is on roam a constant and annoying message that can't be dismissed takes up valuable screen space. This message should either be able to be dismissed, or removed completely.

    As a European I constantly use my phone on roam in many countries at no additional cost. This message is redundant in that case.

    As a non-US user my mobile network offers me good rates for the rest of the world that do not cost more than I want. Therefore this message is redundant.

    At least it should be dismissed, and should be able to be turned off…

  2. 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

    The issue is reproducible on any Android hardware device.

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

  3. Sticky notes for ordering tasks and priorities/memos, notebook for notes and plans

    Would be nice if sticky notes could have more colors like the onenote sections, and you could give them a label, and reorder the sticky notes by priority within a label

  4. add next/previous instance buttons in search/find on page

    what's the point of a digital note taking software if it doesn't have the proper search/find on page function?
    onenote for android will highlight everything you search, but will only navigate to the first instance of the word you search. there is absolutely no way to jump to the next instance/word. this has made this software useless.
    i imported everything from evernote to onenote before finding out this defect. guess I have to stick to the evernote.
    please fix this! it is such a basic function and not that hard to implement!

  5. Galaxy Tab S4 - S Pen Usability Issue When Highlighting Text

    OneNote for Android has a basic usability issue when you highlight text using Samsung’s S Pen on the Galaxy Tab S4.

    If you use the S Pen to highlight a word, you cannot drag the handles to highlight words either side of the selected word using the S Pen.

    To select words either side of the highlighted word, you must use your finger or another non-S Pen stylus to move the handles to the desired location.

    In contrast, Word for Android allows you to move the handles with the S Pen.

    Can you please include this basic functionality to OneNote…

  6. Have the Android app open for OneNote when a OneNote link is used from another app.

    When I was using Evernote, I was able to copy the link to any note and past it in an event in Google Calendar. When I saw the event on my phone, I was able to click the link in the notes area and the mobile app for Evernote would open. The Notion app does this too. It's only OneNote that doesn't. Why?! Whenever I click OneNote's note links, it opens a web page in my browser where I have to log in. Please - have OneNote for Android open on mobile when links to notes in OneNote are used…

  9. 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

  10. Enable Sticky Note Functionality in the Tablet Interface

    The tablet interface for the Android Onenote app is missing the bottom bar that includes search and sticky notes. Please implement the updated Android design from the phone on tablets in some form so we can have both a better design/interface as well as access to new features like sticky notes.

  11. Undo button for Sticky Notes

    I believe that both OneNote and Sticky Notes have an undo button on iOS, but on Android only OneNote has an undo button.
    Having an undo button for Sticky Notes as well would be very helpful.

  14. Allow Fullscreen

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

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. Why is the android version of OneNote so watered down?

    For any religious user of Onenote on Windows, the contrast in functionality between the Windows version and the android version is just painful. Simple things like page size formatting (i.e. setting paper size preference - A3, A4, Letter size, Tabloid size etc) are not available on the Android app. These things matter when you want to print out your notes. It is super frustrating to have handwritten notes that randomly spill over onto the next page when you are trying to print out notes that were taken on the android version because you have no ability to limit the page…

  20. 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.
