OneNote for Mac should be fully like OneNote 2016 client
OneNote for Mac client should have all the features and functions of the Windows OneNote 2016. One of the biggest fails is the ability to Store notebooks on your local hard drive instead of in the cloud, including backups.
The biggest fail of the OneNote road map for both Windows and Mac is making both versions a stripped down shell of what it was. Instead of removing features of OneNote 2016 for those who purchase Office suites, OneNote should have all the new features that is going into the "free" version and retain all of the features supported by the 2016 client

I wish I could vote for this a million times. Please just bring the PC/Online version to what 2016 was and make the Mac version the same. PLEASE.
This is ridiculous. Where can I download the last 2016 version?
I just was trying to write an equation on OneNote 2019 Mac. it is so difficult. I am not sure why they have removed the equations tab from there.
MS OneNote team don't seem to do much with the Mac version. The sidebar is trash in the latest version and functionality is extremely limited compared to the OneNote 2016....they tried doing the same with the latest Windows onenote - everyone complained and they are now reverting back to onenote 2016 again....be nice if they did something for Mac users.
I'm moving over to evernote and word slowly now, which I am so sad to do as OneNote used to be such a brilliant piece of software.
The excel sheets are critical for what I do in one note and not having access to edit them on Mac is extremely problematic for me.

As a person who makes notebooks on Windows during the day, and adds to and refines them on a Mac at night, I would *really* like the features of OneNote on both platforms to be harmonized. For example, making links on the Mac is painful compared to Windows versions. I also love the math/plotting feature in OneNote on Win 10 and wish the Mac version had this. Finally, I would pay money for the ability to save notebooks locally in addition to the cloud. This feature would be worth doubling the cost of Office 365 to me.

Will uninstall OneNote until this gets addressed. Terrible oversight!!
Guys,Please have a look on this idea
I think it will increase interoperability between mac and ipad/iphone
Please make OneNote for Mac have all the features of OneNote on windows. I hope someone will listen to our please and not force us to start using awful tools like evernote etc.

Please fix searching by hashtags on mac, when I search for "#hash" it searches for "#hash", "hash" and "#", unlike windows version

Including such small things like searching by hashtags, when I search for "#hash" it searches for "#hash", "hash" and "#", unlike windows version

Agreed. OneNote is completely useless without being able to save locally. It is a complete failure and I've uninstalled it.

also, supporting Apple text replacement please... What's wrong with Mac OneNote? Shame!
Especially Outlook integration. There is a business case for Microsoft as well because then people will use Outlook for calendar and tasks more! Oh, and search functionality for tasks (tags) like you have on Windows where you get a list of all tasks in your notebook, page or section.

please add the math feature

I have updated to the newest version, and I can see the icon changed. However, it always shows "connecting" and then it becomes "Not responding", and I have to force it quit by Activity Monitor. Please make it more stable, thanks!

I would especially like to see the improvement of export/print features of OneNote for Mac. Specifically (all the following is implemented in OneNote for Windows 10):
1. OneNote for Mac is still unable to export/print the ENTIRE notebook/section. So we have to export/print the notes one by one
2. OneNote for Mac cannot export the paper style to PDF or printer
3. The content exported is enlarged (bigger than 100%) and it often exceeds the paper width
Please add multiple accounts support. Thanks a lot!
