How can we improve OneNote for Mac?

Mac: Compile all To Do tags into a summary page / sort by tags

In OneNote for Windows, you can create a new blank page and have it search all other existing pages for items tagged as To Do items. It will then make a single compiled list of all To Do items and copy them on the new page.

This is a great tool and would really like to have it on OneNote for Mac.

        I just started using OneNote for Mac (2018 version). So we have the ability to tag, but then no way to easily go back and see where we have applied those tags? That seems pointless! I saw a thing on windows OneNote where you can pull up a summary page with all your tags, and that's apparently not included in the Mac version?

        How has this not been solved by now. Major disappointment. I will go back to my other tools.

        Don't do this : make a way to have *arbitrary* query. The presence of the tag "ToDo" is just one. It would be preposterous to have it hardwired specifically for this tag, when there is so much value in having EXPRESSIONS like "tagged todo + updated last 7 days" etc..

        This omission is a huge oversight. Plus the inability to save a search that's updated LIVE, not a snapshot like the Windows version's "Crate Summary Page"

        Want to comment and follow, this is nuts this is the 75% of the value of OneNote...

        Please offer a timeline or suggestion of when this will be incorporated?

        Echo the comments here. Not having a summary view eliminates 75% of the value of onenote!!

        I wonder how many times people have to comment on getting this feature added before the product team responds.

        Horrendous! I am not a MS user. Got into it less than a year back. Monstrosities such as this make me wonder if I made a right move! We cannot do this, we cannot do that, it is available on this platform, but not on the other one, and so on ... It just goes one. I even wonder if we need to complain about these things in 2018!

        I am so sad to not have this feature now that I have switched to a Mac office. This feature is invaluable!

        How many votes does it take before this basic feature is added? This thread is almost 4 years old and I'm on the latest version of OneNote for Mac and can't believe it still doesn't exist.

        Why doesn't this exist for Mac?!?! This is an essential feature that makes OneNote valuable.
