  1. Please add favourites and a view for recently added notes

    Evernote has these capabilities today. There should be a way to access favourite notes (which are like Quick Reference). Also there should be a way to sort notes views, more specifically, a way to customize whether one can see recently added or modified notes on the top. There could be a widget to show just one specific note, similar to 'Add to home screen".

  2. Better font formatting for Android phones

    Things like the ability to choose the type of font, and font size are crucial if you want to take notes properly. OneNote already has the ability to support these given that if I were to paste text from another source, OneNote is perfectly capable of showing the right font selection and font size so why can't the option to choose these myself also be added to the app? Even if you can't add the extensive customisation of Word, a simple option to choose between 3-4 different heading styles that many other apps already do with ease using markup would…

  4. add all onenote 2016 features to onenote

    I use print to onenote 2016 and create Outlook task (synced to office 365) as well as screen clipping and many other features in the 2016 version of onenote. Please bring full suite functionality to the windows 10 / android versions of this application. Also local file stores and backups are a must for me, even if that is through OneDrive Business local shares. I like to print for financial reports for the Board of Directors on paper, then print an exact copy of them to onenote 2016. I can rest assured that what I file in my notebook is…

  5. Android: Share and Print just like the other Office Apps

    Two major features are missing on the mobile app, Share and Print. Both features are in all the other office apps. Without these two basic options I must keep my Surface at all times.

  6. Collapsible Outline Lists

    I often outline my notes or ideas using nested bullets instead of free-text paragraphs. Sometimes these lists get really long, and jumping from bullet to bullet on the same level is cumbersome. If I could expand/collapse bullets, I could focus on the right part of a long/deep outline. This would be most useful!

  7. Optimize management of notebook sections syncronized & storage used

    If you open up a couple of notebooks on Android, it rapidly takes up lots of space on the device, and takes ages syncronizing.

    I'd like the ability to optionally set certain OneNote notebooks to fully offline vs only available when connected... so that I can have one small fully synchronized notebook for frequent mobile use; but still have access to browse and search my full archive on an occasional basis (without having to sync the whole thing to my phone)

    Or - just get smarter about caching stuff that I use often, rather than maintaining a complete copy on…

  8. PRINT

    Users must be able to PRINT from OneNote for Android. Any cheap note taking app has a Print function. An MS app that doesn't PRINT TEXT is absurd and very disappointing!

  9. Add the function ink to text to Onenote for Android

    I have a pen on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and I could use the function Ink to text. Now I write something on my telephone, have to use the OneNote application on my PC to convert it to digital text.
    Not so handy

  10. Allow me to save OneNote files locally on an android tablet

    My company blocks cloud storage. I cannot log in to OneNote from my Desktop PC. I have a tablet that I use to take notes with OneNote, but I cannot get the files from the tablet to the PC, or vice versa. I want to be able to save OneNote files from my tablet on the tablet, and not in cloud storage, such that I can move them back and forth between my Desktop PC to synchronize them.

  11. Managing images/drawings size in OneNote for Android

    It's already useful that we can use stylus in OneNote for Android. But ,after inserting those drawings or attaching pics, it is only available to modify those at a desktop OneNote, not at the Android app. Hope this feature will soon be made available.

    App syncs pretty slowly, cannot switch from Simplenote fully until sync times are on par.

  14. Option to sort pages by title or reverse date order.

    I realize the app emulates a paper notebook where you add notes to blank pages at the end as you go, but this isn't a paper notebook, and should be more convenient than one. I often access my recent notes and don't like scrolling all the way to the bottom of the page list every time. There should be an easy. persistent sorting option - either by name or reverse creation date.

  16. Crop Image

    You can crop images on the Online version of onenote but not on the desktop or the Android app. I never take an image framed correctly. It would be nice to have at least a crop tool.

  17. Undo/Redo buttons, keep screen on, set page defaults and export to PDF

    I'd like the following features to be available in the OneNote app:
    1. Undo button and redo rebuttons. These are really important.
    2. Prevent my device from going to sleep when I'm using OneNote
    3. Set default page properties (background, color and size)
    4. Export sections to PDF (and whole notebooks as well) without having to upload to OneDrive

  20. Move a page within a section

    Very happy the move-page-to-other-notebook feature was added. We still need the ability to move a page within a section/tab. Ideally, it would also allow sorting the pages since, in some cases, the pages are organized in a sequence.

    Thanks for voting for this suggestion! I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just released a new version of OneNote on Android which includes the ability to reorder pages freely. Update to the latest version through Google Play, try it out, and let us know what you think!
