  1. Share and Find Notes by QR Code (Generate and Scan respectively)

    I would like to be able to generate a QR code for a notebook, section, page or paragraph (essentially all the places that I can right click and "Copy Link to...".
    Once the QR code has been generated, the mobile apps would need the ability to scan the QR code to view the corresponding location.

    The use case I have in mind would be to create a note with a list of items in a storage bin, then generate a QR code to print on a sticker and apply to the outside of the bin/box. I can either search OneNote…

  3. Page size + Print setting for onenote android app

    It would be really great to have the same features in the Samsung Galaxy S4 tab version of the OneNote app as that of the OneNote 365 app.

    The features I find the most useful are -


    1. Page size option -
      Many times, I would like to take print of my assignments on an A4 page, to be able to submit them.
      Either printing the notes on an actual page or a pdf version, without the page size option on the tab, I don't know where to stop writing, where the page ends.


    2. Print option -
      I would really like…

  5. Allow Multiple Accounts for Sticky Notes

    Only the first account you add to OneNote will sync with Sticky Notes. Mutltiple Accounts (such as Work and Personal) will not sync and there is no option to add or switch to the other account.

    I have a Samsung S10+ running OneNote 16.0.12325.20242, and this issue was replicated by another user.

    For reference: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeonenote-msoamobile-mso_365hp/personal-sticky-notes-not-showing-in-onenote-on/eb121116-e5e7-4976-89c3-d8c791ecad18

  7. View mode

    View mode for viewing notes as notes are not only supposed to be written. It is written so that you can view it later. Word has view mode. But why not for a note app???

  8. [Feature Request] Let us choose the default section that automatically opens in OneNote app Android

    Let us choose either of the 3 sections (Note Books, Search, Sticky Notes) as the default when we open OneNote app on Android.

    for example I use OneNote app on Android mainly to stay in sync with my Sticky Notes on my Windows PC so I want to see Sticky Notes section first when I open OneNote app on Android, but it's on the far right side.

  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

  11. As a User I want to be able to minimize sub-pages

    Please add a functionality to minimize sub-pages, so I can use OneNote for big projects without losing oversight.

    This is a really important feature to use OneNote to it's fullest capabilities.

  12. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Sync with Samsung Notes

    Samsung has moved beyond its old S-Notes app to Samsung Notes. It would be a killer feature to be able to sync Samsung Notes to OneNote. I use OneNote across Windows, iOS and now Android and love it. The ability to jot notes on the Galaxy Note lock screen is amazing and would be great if those notes could show up in OneNote

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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…
