  1. Make sure that the GUI for PC and Mac users are the same. Necessary in BYO class environs

    Having different layouts forusers of different platforms is extremely disturbung in educational contexts where Bring your own device will be the norm in the years to come.

  2. OneNote for older OS version e.g. OSX10.9 missing

    I would like to have a chance to install from the app store an older version of OneNote, e.g. for OSX10.9, because I am actually not willing to upgrade my Mac to 10.10.
    I recently bought an tablet and installed OneNote, now I would like to install OneNote on my MAC 10.9 Maverick too.

  3. View multiple pages in single stream of text

    Add a view so that when multiple pages or tabs are selected it will show them all in series. Based on tab/page order or order clicked would be feasible.
    This would allow multiple meeting minutes taken in subsequent pages to read more like a story. It is especially handy when taking multiple short notes. Printing from this view would be great to send a summary to a new member or client.

  4. Remove posts that have been accomplished in updates

    I'm tired of looking through posts that have been accomplished. Also, bundle posts that are duplicates of what has already been recommended. I made that mistake because I wasn't willing, at the time, to search through all the suggestions.

  5. Allow enterprise users to skip login during first run wizard

    In all other Office for Mac 2016 apps, enterprise users can skip logging in with a Microsoft account. Per company policy, we are not allowed to create and/or login to Microsoft accounts. Therefore my users complain that I prevent them from using OneNote for Mac. Please give us a skip option for enterprise users who only want to use on-prem sharepoint onenote notebooks.

  8. Please add Spell Checker to OneNote for Mac.

    Please add spell checker for Mac. I think you have it in the program because it finds my misspelled words but i can use the application to correct the word.

    I love OneNotes and have my whole team using it...

  9. pop up menu with commonly used operations when selecting any text

    In Windows version every time we select some text tiny pop up menu appears with commonly used operations such as change font, font size, tag list, font colour, etc.
    This gives us possibility to quickly edit select text without going to collapsed ribbon and selecting proper operation.
    And if we move cursor out of the selected text this pop up menu disappears.

    It would be great to have such feature in version for Mac.

    Thanks.

    Regards,
    Nikolay

  10. default

    Set my own default tab and default page within that tab.
    If I have stuff in a certain date/activity order, but one older item is of current importance, I want to have OneNote always open to that tab/page.

  11. make it easier to work with hierarchical content

    The 'macified' interface for OneNote makes it more difficult to work with information that is stored hierarchical by nature.

    The old Windows version was perfect. All that time spent on a great design was essentially thrown away and replaced with something that is difficult to work.

    On the top there is left to right sections, with section groups to the far right. Then pages and sub-pages from top to bottom on the right.

    From a usability standpoint, I find it much more difficult to navigate complex topics this way.

    I would prefer to have a single area to navigate from…

  12. Colors are not very accurate, and not consistent across the app... For example, red table shades look orange-ish, although the red highlight

    Colors are not very accurate, and not consistent across the app... For example, red table shades look orange-ish, although the red highlighter is totally legit.

  13. Let me remove notebooks from 'recents' list

    Currently there seems to be no way to remove notebooks from the 'recents' list.

    I am freelancer and have several notebooks from an earlier contract that I am now stuck with. In the support forum I was told to use a Windows computer to get them removed... not commenting any further on that.

  15. Scrollbar for Tables

    Tables aren't useful for long ongoing lists, but they would be if they had a scrolling view. Also, we need to hide/show completed tasks.

  17. Automatically email out a onenote page on a daily or weekly basis

    Automatically email out a onenote page on a regular basis. For example, say I have a list of tasks I need to complete on a monthly basis, or I want to be reminded of my goals. I'd like to have these pages emailed out to me automatically on a regular basis.

  18. Train your help desk staff. They don't even know the product.

    I have a password protection issue and after being sent three different places, no one even knew what I was talking about. still unresolved.

  20. Better access to other notebooks

    Now access to other notebooks is through a pulldown menu beside the section tabs. Let's vote to this option that all available notebooks be 'shown' or 'visible' with their icons or in other ways like it used to be in "OneNote" for windows 2003. Thanks.
