    • Allow more than one account in Android phones

      Currently, in Android phones, we are allowed to add only one Microsoft account for OneNote app. If the user has more than one account or their family account. It is really hard to sync. Please allow this functionality.

      • Unlimited audio recording length

        In Evernote, I can record lectures of any length from my phone and easily find them on any platform. OneNote for android is useless for this task. Recording should be built into the app.

          • Linetools, lasso and page size!!

            Hi! I would love to get the lasso tools as many others says.

            i want linetools as well to make straight lines and circles.

            Page size would be great, where we can choose between A4, A3 "papers"

            • More options to customize pens and more highlighters in draw mode + sync pens created between devices

              More colors of highlighters are required for my use.

              It would be nice to have a customization of the pens similar to that of the Windows 10 app and the synchronization with the pens already created

                • Turn off autoformatting/autocorrect

                  I would like to be able to work in plain text without any autoformatting, autocorrecting, autocapitalizing etc.
                  More broadly, I want to fully control the app - not the app fully controlling my notes.

                  • Collapse and expand headings

                    This would make long pages much easier to navigate on a phone if you could just expand and collapse the section you're looking at.

                        Support syncing multiple Office 365 Accounts in OneNote for Android. At the moment, only one Office 365 account can be synced as a "Work or School Account". However, a user may need to sync multiple "work" notebooks under the following scenario:
                        1. User works at multiple organizations where the notebooks need to be kept separate.

                        2. User works at an organization and also has a separate school account where the notebooks need to be kept separate.

                        3. User has a personal domain where an Office 365 account has been set up, and also has a work/school account where the notebooks…

                        • Ability to sort notebook manually

                          In OneNote for windows and OneNote iOS, we can manually sort the notebooks according to what we like.
                          For example, in windows, we can just move up and down the notebooks, and they will correspond.
                          In iOs version, we can just easily click 'edit' and then re-arrange the position of notebook according to what we liked best.

                          Why is this important feature not available in android?

                          • Just plain text dark mode

                            I use Onenote to write just only text with minimum formatting. So, in mobile application, I want to be able to switch to an special mode. And there I want to have the follow function:
                            1. plain text as in bloknot,
                            2. bright/dark theme,
                            3. quickly insert date.

                            Thank you.

                              • 3 suggestions for onenote

                                1) usability improvement=long file names are not visible in 7 inch tablets and end users like me are not sure of which file it is,kindly give us a view where long file names are visible for section-groups,sections,pages and even sub-pages

                                2) create Section-groups and subpages from mobile device::::
                                i want to create section groups and sub-pages from android device itself,i want a full featured app ,not a crippled down version of the onenotes desktop version.

                                3) want more drawing tools in mobile app=
                                --Lasso Tool
                                --insert Shapes=triangle,rectangle,circle

                                  • Create Headings in Phone App

                                    I'm using headings a lot to get my notes structured. However you can only create headings in the tablet app on in the windows version.
                                    Current workaround: I'm marking all my headings bold and underlined on my phone. Later in the day, I'm starting OneNote on my Windows PC and create the headings.
                                    Please, come on: It's 2017!

                                    => Please add buttons in the Android App to create new headings!!

                                      • sort

                                        Select which device is the source of truth for conflicts. Sorting on android is automatic and rearranges sections in microsoft online, very annoying.

                                        • default font

                                          Please make it so it is possible to set a default font style for OneNote like what the OneNote for desktop can do. Thank you.
