  1. Insert date / Date picker

    I often want to enter a date (e.g. into a logging table), but it's a hassle to type out dd/mm/yy with slashes and keyboard. I would like it to be present on the scroll bar for inserts along with camera, recording, checkbox, bullets etc.

  5. Enable hand written sticky notes in OneNote and make these visible in the iPad new widget area

    The sticky notes in OneNote are a great idea, it would be great if they can be hand written instead of typed only.

    When a sticky note is created, it would be great if you see it all the time. With the new Widget bar on the iPad home screen this should be possible, keep marked/important sticky notes permanent visible there (just like a real sticky note on the side of your screen).

    Hey,
    can you please add collapsible paragraps to the iPhone version of oneNote. It is essential for working with notes. It exists on desktop and android versions, but not on iPhone.

  8. Selection copy and past of any content, not just written

    If you lasso, it only selects handwritten stuff, but what if there was a selection tool that selected content from the notebook, like even added images so you can take that and put it somewhere else with out having to screenshot it and all that

  9. Please add a way to select a pen color using hex color codes.

    For example #FF0000 as red - some people, including me, have their own favorite colors that are a bit more complicated.
    I just lost my color I picked from the palette and it wouldn't've happened if I could just note the hex code and enter it.

  11. Changing dark mode drawn text to dark grey and not white.

    When dark mode is on, the drawn pen/pencil text should turn to a dark grey rather than going from black to white. With white drawn text on dark mode, you are unable to see your writing if it was done on white slides. I like dark mode, just wish it would change my drawn notes to dark grey and not white on dark mode.

  12. Turn off dark mode in just the app

    I should have the ability to run OneNote in light mode without having to switch the entire iPad out of dark mode. The individual apps themselves should have a toggle for light and dark mode independent of the rest of the OS. I don’t like writing on negative space, and switching the whole iPad to light mode to accommodate for this one app is hindering my overall experience

    Thank you everyone for the feedback so far, we really do appreciate it. We wanted to understand this a little better.

    Could we please share some additional comments of things we were trying that it would have helped to have such a setting or toggle?

    Additionally, we did want to share that on iPad if you go to “View” > “Switch Background”, you will be able to make the canvas/page be in light mode. On iPhone, if you’re on a page at the top right, tap on the “…” menu > “Switch Background”.

    Looking forward to hearing back, thank you!

  15. Custom cloud usage ability for mobile and Office versions of Onenote

    Due to IT security reasons some firms are blocking Onedrive and Sharepoint usage on their closed networks while the pc’s and mobile devices are free to use Office suites. Since Onenote only supports Onedrive and Sharepoint services it becomes impossible to use pc and mobile versions of OneNote synched with each other. It would be nice to have a corporate Server set up as a OneNote Server, like the MS Exchange Server. :)

  17. autocorrect

    Please move the process to add auto-correct in iPad, right up the top of your product development pathway. Being able to select or deselect autocorrect already exists in Mac OS, so please prioritise adding this to iOS. Its constantly frustrating to have brand names, foreign language words and scientific words autocorrected.

  19. Fix OneNote being jumpy and glitchy when drawing shapes on a pdf zoomed in

    Whenever I am zoomed in on a pdf and want to insert the arrow shape or any shape the page jumps and glitches around. The next thing i know I will be on the next page. Same thing happen when I undo any sort of drawing, the page jumps up or down. (jump meaning scroll uncontrollably)

  20. Link drawing to text

    I like to take my notes mostly as typed text because it looks cleaner, but occasionally I need to add hand-drawn figures. If I try to move the text, I also need to move the figure to match. It would be more convenient if I could link the image to the block of text so that when I move the text they move together.
