  1. Synchronizing ToDo items with Outlook tasks should be supported

    As an Office 365 user, in order to not waste time linking Outlook tasks with OneNote notes, I want the possibility to create ToDo items in OneNote that are automatically synchronized with Outlook tasks.

  2. tag summary

    Need a way to create the tag summary page on a Mac! It appears to have been dropped from the Mac version of OneNote and is a huge feature to be able to create a tag summary from 1 to multiple pages of notes.

  3. PAGE SIZE OPTION!!

    You really need to add the same options that the PC version has. Not knowing where one page ends and the next start is a huge pain when you wanting to print things on one page!.

  4. Add people assignments to "To Do" items

    Add a field for a name assignment next to each To Do item. I'd like to be able to see a list of all items I need to speak to an individual about when I see that person without having to search. As an added bonus. allow me to add due dates to items so I can see all To Do items due today or tomorrow separately.

  5. Printing

    Why doesn't OneNote for Mac have the same printing capabilities as OneNote for PCs, Evernote, and Noteability. Makes OneNote useless for me as a student.

  7. Recent Notes & Pin Notes

    OneNote for iOS has a great Recent Notes section with the ability to pin notes. It is fantastic for shared notebooks and for users with many notebooks/pages. Please add this useful feature to the MacOS Desktop version.

  11. Printing on Mac is a huge problem. Please make it work.

    There does not seem to be a way of printing from one note within the boundary's of a sheet of paper. This is a huge issue. Apple's Numbers is a good example of good user control when printing but With OneNote it would bee good if we could just print within the width of the paper.

    Thank you

  12. PDF Export on Mac and IOS

    When exporting form onenote on windows the exported pdf has the current paper style I chose, on IOS and Mac we are getting no paper style.

    in addition, when exporting from windows the resolution is great like it is looks like in the app on 100% view, on the Mac and iOS the proportions are all wrong it looks like it is exporting in on 60% zoom and some drawing and writings looks out of proportion.

    For me those two problems are critical for the day to day use.

  13. Ability to avoid creation of "Untitled Page" each time a new section is created

    Currently each time I create a new section OneNote creates an empty page with the title "Untitled Page". This is quite annoying especially while reworking my notebook's structure where I create a lot of sections and drag existing notes to them.

    Deleting such notes is a hassle and on the other hand creating a note manually is just a single click.

  15. You tried. You failed. It happens. Now bring back Notebook in Word.

    The Notebook template in Word 2011, with it's ruled lines mimicking an actual notebook, was far more user friendly than OneNote. You could write out a to-do list with check boxes next to them and then drag them up and down the lines to whatever order of priority you wanted. Why would you eliminate that? I get that you want to give your younger engineers' ideas a chance, but not every swing will produce a hit. You're doubling down on a strikeout here. Forget OneNote and bring back Word Notebook.

  16. Have more than one account on OneNote for Mac as in Windows version

    The Windows version allows multiple OneNote accounts https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/use-multiple-microsoft-accounts-with-onenote-for-windows-10-5afff855-54ee-47e4-a773-db048d4ac299
    but that option is not available on the Mac. This would be so incredibly useful for Business users with multiple accounts and for business / personal users who would like to access both accounts simultaneously on their desktops.

  19. Please use the navigation pane from version 16.22 and before

    In the latest Version 16.23 - when you click on the typing screen, the tabs remain but the grey bar with a search button and icon with "books" remains....I far preferred the old way which had a better layout of the notebook tabs and when you started typing the tabs would go. The grey bar is pointless and irritating since it is permanently there, takes up space (yes it matters when you are on a split screen a lot of the time!)....the previous interface was really great and this version has gone back a step. Please please please take my…
