Bidirectional linking between pages
Introduce bi-directional links between pages: If note A links to page B, an entry is added at the bottom of page B that links to page A. Note B thus collects its contexts, and note A becomes part of note B's context.
This is a fantastic feature introduced by Zettelkasten and Roam Research to use notes not only as memory, but for systematic thinking. It implements the Zettelkasten Method by Nikolas Luhmann (or in a modern take: Smart Notes by Soehnke Ahrens).

I would also like the linked references feature currently available in roam. Also it would be great to view side by side the page/ note I’m writing and see/ edit the linked page at the same time. Again like Roam research.
This would be so helpful!
This should be in all the OneNote versions, not just the Mac edition. As an author, I struggle to keep my notes organized in a way that makes them accessible for writing projects. Zettelkasten is perfect for writers, and as a heavy duty OneNote user, I would like to adapt Luhmann's system to the platform.

This is vital for any research project. We need a graph database where we can develop networked thought.
Please add this!

please, yes. It is a key feature for research and... well, note taking.

It's one of my favorite features in Asana, and I can see it being very useful in OneNote as well.

Please get this introduced. This will make it a game changer forTeachers, students and everyone using one note.

This would be quite nice -- not only in the Mac version but Windows as well. I've worked for a productivity and information-management consultant for years who really knows his stuff, and based on what I've learned from him, I recognize that this feature would be a subtle but powerful enhancement towards effectively integrating information across pages. I already do this manually sometimes, and it's really come in handy.
If/when you add this feature, please also add an option to hide it from any printouts/exports -- or just make the "linked pages" entry a section (as in text indented under a top-level line) that is collapsed by default.
