  3. Please link OneNote items tagged as "To Do" to Outlook Calendar.

    If a "To Do" item is identified by a user, it would help with efficiency to automatically be able to attach a milestone or reminder date to it in OneNote, or to have it transfer to Outlook Calendar and assign dates to it there.

  4. Keyboard Shortcut to hide navigation bar (Rather than just clicking the notebooks icon)

    I prefer keyboard-centric note taking, so having to click on the sidebar icon each time to hide or show navigation is a little cumbersome. Would it be possible to introduce a keyboard shortcut to show/hide the sidebar?

  5. Bring back laser pointer

    I have no idea why you would remove this functionality, especially given its usefulness during zoom presentations.

  6. Tag Page Generation for Mac

    Had to go from PC for Mac for work, and I miss being able to pull tags together onto one page. It enabled me to not drop the ball on certain tasks. It also puts specific items in one place, and keeps things organized so that if a tag is irrelevantly placed, I can omit.

  7. Wikilinks or Backlinks

    Hi,

    I love OneNote. To make it even better, could you think about incorporating backlinks or wikilinks into the OneNote arsenal? Currently there is just option to copy/paste links to sections, notes, etc. However, these links don't update or sync in a live manner as in, if I make changes to the title of a note then the pasted link gets corrupted. We can overcome this problem using wikilinks or backlinks. This will make OneNote an amazing Knowledge base akin a digital brain for all my collected notes. Please consider including this seriously 🙏.

    You can look at RoamResearch, Obsidian…

  9. Command-z undo shortcut does not consistently work

    After opening OneNote, the first couple of times I try to use the command-z shortcut to undo I just hear an audible error tone and it does not work. If I try a few times then it seems to eventually work, and then no issues for the remainder of the session. Seems to be a bug.

  10. The same privileges in dark mode as in white mode

    i.e. the highlighter colours, the page colours, the fact that the drawing highlighter doesn't work, the fact that if I want to change from dark mode to white mode all of my previous colours switch into the darkest shade possible of that colour and I have to change all my notes

  12. UI improvements for OneNote on Mac

    Currently the Mac version of OneNote has a navigation similar to the one that can be found on the Windows 10 OneNote app. Please provide an updated UI that features a navigation similar to OneNote 2016 on Windows.

    As a Mac user I always look in envy on the screens of my coworkers with Windows machines. Compared to the Mac Version of OneNote, the Windows OneNote 2016 looks more professional and efficient. My coworkers are able to quickly switch between notebooks, sections and pages without effort. They have a constant overview of where they are in the notebook. This is…

  16. LOCK text box and/or image in OneNote.

    We should have the option to LOCK a text box and/or image into OneNote so that students cannot move the information.

    If there is an alternative way to do this, please share.

  18. Security Issues post sharing File.

    Even after removing the people from share list of existing notes, people are still been able to see all my existing notes.. this is not justified from a paid version of any software.

    Specific :


    1. rakesh@whatdaweb.com

    2. Rakesh.bose@yahoo.com

    I have removed them from my “PropVestors” named notebook, & created a new notebook named “WhadaWeb” where they have been added. But today morning he told me , he has been able to see all my other notes well, including personal notes as well. It’s a serious security issue from Microsoft. Please sort it out immediately.
