  4. 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

  6. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Better text/link mode sharing of websites to OneNote for Android

    I don't like the current workflow of sharing website to OneNote on Android at all. Two things:


    • When viewing a webpage, I usually just want to share the URL to a note, then start typing up some thoughts. I want neither to clip the entire webpage to the note, nor to save an image, yet the Share option for webpages doesn't offer that as an option. (As a workaround, I can share to clipboard, then open OneNote and create a new note, then paste, but this is rather indirect.)


    • Second, when I've selected some text on a webpage in Chrome…

  13. Dark Mode NOW!

    Come on people let's send this query to them because it's so necessary and all other important Note Apps have it. But yes, Microsoft aaalways slower. Too big seems they can't handle.

    Please give us Dark Mode for our eyes.

    Thanks!

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Re-entering my password in OneNote for my Android Device is a PAIN!

    OneNote would be great on my Android device if I didn't have to keep typing in my password, then waiting for OneNote to sync with the app on my laptop. There should be an option to remain signed in as I don't keep any private information in OneNote.

  17. Undo button in the Sticky Notes section

    I would like to leave feedback such that there should be an undo button in the "Sticky Notes" section in One Note on Android phone, similar to the one on Windows desktop. In this very application there is an undo button in "Notebooks->Pages" section, but not one in Sticky Notes.

    Also, the first time someone opens a Sticky Note on android, there is no "cursor position", so when trying to highlight a word by holding it, the whole sticky note is selected - that's how i lost all my data, and an undo button was not there to return it.

  18. 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.

  19. Please fix sharing to OneNote on Xiaomi phones

    When sharing from any place to Onenote on my Xiaomi Pocophone, getting the message 'please open OneNote to set it up for sharing'. There is no option for this and numerous others are running into this issue as well when searching online with no resolution found. Seems to happen only on xiaomi phones..
    Please fix sharing to OneNote app as it is a key feature of the app and productivity is way less this way.

  20. Clear formatting from pasted text

    We need the ability to clear the formatting of pasted text in the Android app. It's present in all other major note apps, and it's present on Desktop.
